North Lakes Chiropractic, Remedial Massage & Traditional Acupuncture
I graduated from the Macquarie University in 2004 with a Masters in Chiropractic, and was humbled to receive the prestigeous Chiropractic Association Of Australia National Graduate of the Year Award, as well as the Vice Chancellor’s Award for Academic Skills and Leadership. Soon after graduating, I traveled to the UK, opening my own practices and treating a range of different conditions and people. After some years in Scotland, I took my knowledge, experience (and my beautiful Scottish wife) back to Australia to continue spreading the benefits of Chiropractic.
The results that I have seen in my career motivate and inspire me to educate anyone that suffers with pain and discomfort about the invaluable assistance that Chiropractic can offer them. Long-term results and resolution is what I am interested in for my patients, and seeing their lives improve due to this holistic approach makes me truly content.
Chiropractic is for everyone, young and old, and I take it upon myself to work with several different techniques to work with your body and your needs, so that you can feel your best. I spend a lot of time creating treatment plans for each and every patient, assisting them with postural exercises and monitoring so that they can strengthen and tone the right muscles to maintain beautiful posture and reduce pain. This means my patients understand causative factors to their pain, which I think is very important in long term pain management.
I am so delighted to be able to offer my skills to you, and I look forward to seeing you at North Lakes Chiropractic.
I completed my chiropractic studies in Melbourne at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) with a Bachelor of Health Science and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic).
I grew up in Adelaide, before relocating to Melbourne to complete my university studies. Growing up, I was always surrounded by sport and played Aussie Rules, basketball and I also competed in rowing. I have always been surrounded by chiropractic, with both my Dad and Grandmother being chiropractors themselves!
In practice, I enjoy tailoring my treatments to the patients’ needs, using a variety of chiropractic techniques including manual adjusting, drop piece adjusting, biomechanical blocks, activator and soft tissue release therapy.
I pride myself on his holistic approach, treating any area of the body, however he has a keen interest in treating headaches, lower back pain, neck pain and issues relating to desk posture.

At home I am a proud Mum to 2 teenagers, a wife and a dog mum. I love spending time with my family, going to the beach, riding dirt bikes, camping, fishing or just chilling at home with a good movie or Netflix series.
Whatever your ailment, acupuncture is always an option.
Chinese Medicine encompasses more than just acupuncture and depending on the presentation of symptoms, may include moxibustion (moxa), guasha, cupping, herbs, herbal liniments/creams, bloodletting, and e-stimulation. Non-needle therapeutic options are also available and effective.
In my downtime, I love just chilling with my family and dogs, but I’m also a keen adrenalin junkie taking up kiteboarding 5yrs ago. You’re never too old to give anything a go and besides there’s always acupuncture to help with any injuries and ailments that sometimes come with the territory!
Try acupuncture – you might just be pleasantly surprised.
