Chiropractic treatment is a form of healthcare that focuses on diagnosing and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. Chiropractors use various techniques to adjust the spine and other joints to reduce pain, improve function, and promote overall health.


During an appointment, your practitioner will typically begin by reviewing your medical history and a physical examination. This may involve assessing posture, range of motion, and muscle strength. Sometimes, diagnostic images, such as X-rays or an MRI scan, are required and a referral will be organised for you.


The primary treatment technique chiropractors use involves applying controlled force to specific spine joints or other body parts. The goal is to correct misalignments or joint restrictions, which are believed to interfere with the nervous system and overall health.


Chiropractors may use their hands or specialised instruments to perform the treatment. In addition to spinal adjustments, chiropractic treatment may include other manual therapies such as soft tissue massage, stretching, and rehabilitative exercises. Chiropractors can also advise on posture, ergonomics, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications to support healing and improve overall well-being.


Chiropractic treatment is commonly used to address conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, and musculoskeletal injuries. In addition, it is often used as a complementary or alternative approach to conventional medical care, working in conjunction with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive and holistic treatment for patients.

Stress Management


Dr Ivor Quigley has developed a unique approach to reducing the effects of stress on the body by combining breathing, energy alignment and the nervous system.  

Focusing on specific points in the body, his therapy aims to restore balance to the nervous and energy systems to relieve emotional distress.


Dr Ivor Quigley has helped many patients address many emotional issues, including anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, depression, pain management, and cravings. 


During an Energy Healing session, Dr Ivor will perform a nervous system assessment through palpation, observation, and dialogue. He will identify tension or blockages and use specific techniques to address those areas and restore balance. The adjustments are typically gentle, aiming to reduce spinal misalignments, release tension and promote proper nerve function. As a result, Dr Ivor Quigley encourages the body's ability to heal and maintain health.


When stressed or anxious, our body's natural stress response is activated, leading to increased heart rate, rapid breathing, and tense muscles. Dr Ivor's treatment aims to activate the Relaxation Response, the opposite of the stress response. It helps to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes relaxation, slows the heart rate, and lowers blood pressure.


Stress and anxiety often lead to muscle tension and tightness. Dr Ivor's technique encourages the release of muscle tension, promoting relaxation and physical calmness.


You may notice improved cognitive function, increased mental clarity, and reduced feelings of fatigue or lethargy associated with stress.


Relaxation Massage

Head Massage

A relaxation massage focuses on promoting relaxation and reducing tension in the body.


During a relaxation massage, the therapist uses long, flowing strokes, kneading, and circular motions to apply pressure to the muscles, promoting relaxation and improving circulation. The pressure applied during the massage is generally light to moderate, aiming to create a calming experience.


The purpose of a relaxation massage is not to work out specific muscle knots or provide deep tissue therapy but rather to help you relax and unwind. It can provide various benefits, such as reducing stress, relieving muscle tension, improving sleep quality, increasing blood flow, and promoting overall well-being.

Pregnancy Massage


Pregnancy massage is a specialised form of massage therapy designed to support the unique needs of pregnant women. It is a safe and gentle approach that relieves the physical discomforts and emotional stress that can arise during pregnancy.


Pregnancy massage is performed by a massage therapist with specific training in prenatal massage techniques. They are knowledgeable about the anatomical and physiological changes that occur during pregnancy and can adapt the massage accordingly to ensure the safety and comfort of the expectant mother.


A pregnancy massage is generally considered safe for most pregnant women. Still, we recommend checking with your healthcare provider before booking a massage, especially if you have any high-risk factors or complications. Unique positioning options accommodate the growing belly and relieve back and hip strain. In addition, we use a unique pillow and cushions to support the body comfortably during the massage.


The techniques used during pregnancy are usually gentle and nurturing. For example, the therapist may utilise techniques like long, flowing strokes, kneading, and light pressure to promote relaxation and improve circulation. They may also focus on specific areas of discomfort, such as the lower back, hips, and legs.


Pregnancy massage can offer several benefits, including relief from muscle tension, back pain, leg cramps, and headaches. It also helps reduce swelling, improve sleep quality, enhance mood, and promote relaxation.

Many parents bring their infants and young children to chiropractors for various reasons, including support for their developing bodies, help with common childhood ailments, and improved overall health and wellness.


Babies' bodies can experience considerable stress and strain during birth, leading to misalignments in the spine and other body parts. These misalignments, also known as subluxations, can interfere with the proper functioning of the nervous system, which can impact overall health and wellness.


Chiropractic care for babies and children involves gentle, non-invasive techniques to help correct these misalignments and support optimal nervous system function. 


Some common reasons parents may bring their babies and children to chiropractors include:

  • Colic: Chiropractic adjustments and gentle massage can help relieve the discomfort and digestive issues associated with colic.

  • Ear infections: Adjustments to the upper cervical spine can help promote proper drainage of the ears, reducing the frequency and severity of ear infections.

  • Sleep issues: Chiropractic care can help improve sleep quality by addressing underlying issues such as pain or discomfort.

  • Developmental delays: Gentle adjustments and other chiropractic therapies can help support healthy growth and development in babies and young children.

  • Sports injuries: Children participating in sports or other physical activities may benefit from chiropractic care to prevent and treat injuries.


Overall, chiropractic care can be a safe and effective way to support the health and well-being of babies and children. Chiropractors can help children thrive and reach their full potential by promoting proper alignment and nervous system function.
