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.

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.

Tash

Natasha Olm

Clinical Nutritionist, BHSc (NutMed)

“The greatest mistake in the treatment of disease is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated”

– Plato

About Natasha

“Health is not valued until sickness comes” – Thomas Fuller

With a strong interest both in women’s health and mental wellbeing, Natasha began her studies in a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Nutritional & Dietetic Medicine. The more she learnt about the mind, nutritional biochemistry and the nervous system - the link between food and its effect on mental health became more apparent, and then the more she could see the impact of stress and its role in disease pathogenesis. She is currently undertaking her Graduate Diploma in Psychology.
Natasha is also an esteemed yoga teacher, and this, combined with her understanding of how chronic stress can block the body from healing, she often prescribes yoga and breathing techniques as a part of her treatment plan to clients. Natasha says that it is through the teachings of yoga that she is able to provide people with the tools and techniques they need to encourage relaxation, develop mindfulness and therefore manage stress and anxiety states.

Natasha’s specific areas of interest are female reproductive health (especially endometriosis), gut health and mental wellbeing. Through nutritional medicine and yoga, clients are able to make powerful transformations by positively affecting the nervous system, thereby having a direct impact on both physical and mental health outcomes. A typical initial consult will involve taking an extensive personal health history, functional pathology analysis and a holistic understanding of any contributing dietary and lifestyle factors. Individualised treatment plans often include dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations to help improve the individual’s health picture.

Along with an obsession for creating (and eating) wholesome food, Natasha is incredibly passionate about the environment as well as clean and ethical beauty. So be prepared to not only look in your fridge but also your pantry, bathroom and laundry to see what else may be impacting your vitality and health.
