In truth I wish I had found Chiropractic sooner than I did.
I was born in South-Africa in an extremely active family. In school I played a lot of sports but struggled with chronic back pain most of my adolescent life. That is not normal or healthy, especially for a developing body. My family had always commented on how bad my posture was. Had I seen a chiropractor sooner, I know I would have excelled a lot more and would have felt better in my body. I remember my first adjustment clearly, it changed the direction of my life going forward.
This background led me to find the value of movement and its positive impact on our brain, physical and emotional health. It sparked my drive to fully embody and advocate for proactive health. It is why I am so passionate about educating and empowering my patients from all age groups about the potential their body has to adapt, to heal and to create healthy habits that support a balanced lifestyle.
I love caring for people at all stages of life, from athletes to whole families, enabling individuals to tap into their full potential through chiropractic care, and to support them to lead a fulfilling, healthy life.
I graduated in 2015 from the University of Johannesburg and then obtained my certification in International Sports Chiropractic in 2018, while in clinical practice. I was a chiropractor there for 5 years before deciding to practice in the Netherlands. I am fundamentally trained as a diversified chiropractor, evolving my knowledge and skills over the years to provide more personalized care. At the moment I’m studying with the Carrick Institute to specialize further in Functional Neurology so I can assess more complex cases such as concussions, Parkinsons, migraines and movement disorders.
I believe “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free approach to wellbeing, not only in relieving symptoms or life stressors but also maintaining a state of optimal health. I feel chiropractic is the most efficient way to affect the nervous system. I love the positive impact made through human connection and the privilege of traveling alongside my patients' health journey, while educating them and empowering them with their choices around their health.
