Dr Laura Elliott | Kula Health

Dr Laura Elliott

Chiropractor, Co-Founder

“The treatments themselves do not ‘cure’ the condition, they simply restore function and the body’s self-healing ability.”

– Dr L. Chaitow

About Laura

Laura has a love for health and the human body with a Masters in Chiropractic, Honors in Health science, Bachelor of Biomedical Science and she is also an experienced Yoga and Meditation teacher.

Laura believes movement is the best form of medicine, and it was during her time as a personal trainer that she developed a love for human biomechanics and movement. Harnessing her passion for movement, Laura moved into Chiropractic – working as a facilitator to the body, working with the neuromusculoskeletal system, restoring function and enabling bodies to heal as nature intended. It was here during her studies that Laura discovered the benefits of yoga for the mind and recovery of the body, and undertook training to become a yoga teacher.

This work opened her to see that the world of healing is much more than just physical. Through the teachings of yoga and chiropractic it became clear that healing comes from within, and requires balance of mind and body. Laura truly believes in, and embodies preventative health.

Laura loves working with every day athletes to keep them functioning at their peak and doing the things they love. Equally she has a love for working with pregnant women and women working toward pregnancy.

From athletes to yogis, mums and dads to office workers, Laura has a unique approach to cater to all walks of life. Laura is a multimodal practitioner, using manual chiropractic adjustments with myofascial and neuro-emotional release techniques.

**Due to Dr Laura's wait-list and dedication to support and serve current clients she will only be seeing new patients who have been referred through to her. If this is you please use the contact form and we will be in touch within 24hours.

– Rita Zahara

Client Experience

"Summa Iru"

– Simply be

About Sharon

Passionate about looking after myself and helping others do the same, I love sharing food and yoga, as these go hand in hand in living my best life.

I’m a mother of 2 young adults, 21 and 24, who are well into their own paths in life. Once they established themselves into uni life/careers, it was my time to learn skills and share more than a passion with yoga teaching.

Being a Rover Scout many years ago, the motto of service is something I live by, as I continue to help others.
