Dr Annika Jende – Chiropractor
Applied Kinesiologist and Certified LifeLine Practitioner

Annika was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and studied Chiropractic in the UK, at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. She has been in Australia  since 1997; in the Manning Valley since 2005 and loves it here – this is her home because it feels like it is!

Annika is passionate about helping people realize the amazing potential they have to unleash joy in their lives. A major part of Annika’s time is spent studying and finding the best ways to relieve pain, improve function and allow people to see some light they may not have imagined was available to them. Over the years Annika has learned that to get deeper and better health outcomes, it can be really helpful to address not just the structural, but the chemical and emotional aspects of health as well, using Chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology, making this a truly holistic, tailor-made approach to health care.

Dr Graham Taylor – Chiropractor
Applied Kinesiologist and Retained Neonatal Reflexes Practitioner

Graham is an ex-Victorian but loves the warm water and friendly atmosphere up this way. He completed Chiropractic Studies at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne. He has also undertaken post graduate Paediatric Studies and continues to study Chiropractic Paediatrics, as well as the Retained Neonatal Reflexes Technique (RNR).

A major accident as a boy led Graham to experience the amazing benefits of Chiropractic in healing his body and this inspired him to become a Chiropractor. He sees the accident (that at the time was the worst thing ever) as a blessing – if he hadn’t had that trauma as a boy, he may not have been led to Chiropractic and may not value so greatly the gift of mobility and wellness. Graham loves helping people so Chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology are great vehicles to help achieve the best outcome for his patients.

He is also very passionate about helping families create better function through the gentle technique called Retained Neonatal Reflexes (RNR).

 

Lydia

Lydia Irving – Nutritionist
BHSc

Lydia had a beautiful, wholesome upbringing on a small organic hobby farm on the Mid North Coast NSW. Her parents have forever run whole food cafes and her father worked in Public Health.

She was also ‘blessed’ with a hypersensitive immune system – that presented largely in my enlarged tonsils. She has from a very young age, always been able to feel if something is harmful to her body. This leading her to understand how what we consume can impact us negatively.

During University Lydia became fascinated in the digestive system. This was encouraged by the high prevalence of gut health issues in both her peers and patients. This is then when she really started to see how what we consume can impact us positively. Nutritional Medicine is a holistic practice, recognising that illness and disease may be a consequence of the whole body not being in balance, rather than isolated systems.

As a qualified nutritionist Lydia follows the naturopathic philosophies to health care, which is in all aspects of health: mind, body and spirit. She endeavours to treat her clients with a gut focused holistic approach to uncover and heal the root cause of any disease in the mind and body.

 

IMG_0436Bella Saville – Massage Therapist

Bella’s passion for helping people is what’s got her through life! She remembers being in primary school watching a documentary on Ethiopia about starvation and poverty over there and being so overwhelmed with grief and sadness. This was her very first moment in life when she decided she was going to make a difference in the world and that she was born to help people.

Unfortunately life threw some obstacles in her way, which lead her to travel around Australia and work in remote locations. In 2011 she ended up in Echo Beach in WA where she was introduced to yoga, meditation and eco sustainability.

A couple of years later Bella ended up at Maleny in a health retreat where she figured out how she wanted to make a difference. She has been working towards achieving those goals ever since! Her journey has been one of healing both emotionally and physically and her passion is to help and guide people in the same way she have been guided herself through life through the inspiration and wisdom of others!

Touch is essential to human health and wellbeing, which is something Bella learned at a very young age. She started receiving massages when she was 12 years old and she quickly realised the benefits of a massage both physically and emotionally, and it has been a passion and love for her ever since. Everybody is worthy of healing and love and that’s what her intention for every massage is to give to the other person!

Bella’s massage style is a combination of all massages she has ever received (which is a lot and all different styles) and she pick out what I found beneficial for healing on all levels. Her style is unique filled with healing intention and a genuine want to help whoever lies on her table!
