Laura Elliott - Chiropractor, Co-Founder

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.

Racheal Lee - Clinical Naturopath

Racheal Lee

Clinical Naturopath

“Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Watch your life transform and be healthy.”

– Bella Bleue

About Racheal

Racheal has an exciting and truly holistic approach to healthcare. She views each client as whole person and addresses mental, physical, spiritual and emotional imbalances. By embracing Naturopathic medicine and philosophies, Racheal’s aim is to discover the underlying cause of disease, rather than the mere suppression of symptoms.

For Racheal, naturopathic medicine is her passion, incorporating many ancient healing traditions such as iridology and tongue analysis, as well as new scientific research and pathology testing for each individual client.

Having experienced her own struggles with food intolerances and allergies meant that Rachel very quickly understood the concept that 'food is medicine, and medicine is food'

Racheal’s passion for a healthy existence and own personal experiences led her to study a Bachelor of Health Science (Natropathy) where she gained extensive knowledge of nutrition, mindset, herbal medicine and the biochemical pathways that leads people to longevity, energy and overall happy and healthier lives. 

Racheal uses a combination of different healing modalities including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, energy healing and lifestyle counseling to bring the whole body into balance. Her fundamental belief is that our bodies are meant to have an abundance of energy and as we start to remove the obstacles that keep us from feeling this way, our body’s ability to heal will take over, and you can start to thrive.

Rachel loves working with everyone she comes across but her specialty areas are weight loss, hormonal balancing, digestive health, energy production and food and allergy testing.
