CHILDREN
Children do not simply have smaller versions of adult spines and additional factors need to be taken into consideration. Common conditions managed in infants include breastfeeding difficulty, colic (irritable baby) and torticollis. Limps, learning difficulties and injuries are common in children.

PREGNANCY
Balancing the pelvis and providing evidence-based information regarding birth options and choices are the primary focus of Pregnancy care, as well as addressing any discomfort. Pregnancy is about growing healthy mothers as well as babies.

POSTPARTUM
Support for a new mother is essential to the health and well-being of both mother and baby. Common components of care include normal infant behaviour, spine discomfort with breastfeeding and appropriate referral to other health care practitioners.

SAFETY
Chiropractic care of children in Australia has an exemplary safety record. All adjustments are performed with the minimal required force, with the patient’s age, size and preferences important factors to consider.

Lymphoedema is caused by an overload of the lymphatic system resulting  in a swelling of one or more regions of the body. It is not curable but can be managed.

There are two main categories of Lymphoedema

a) Primary Lymphoedema: caused by a malformation of lymphatic vessels and/or nodes and might not appear till later on in life. 

b) Secondary Lymphoedema:  is caused by damage to the lymphatic system, mostly the axillary and inguinal lymph nodes.

Most frequently secondary lymphoedema occurs after surgery and radiation treatment for cancer. An oedema may develop directly after treatment or over time as a result of a chronic overload of the lymphatic system.

Manuela King

Maneula KingManuela graduated in 2010 as a Remedial Massage Therapist from Paramount College in Perth. Since then she has extended her knowledge to offer professional help for people who suffer from chronic illnesses. Manuela did her postgraduate training in Oncology Massage through the nationally accredited ‘Oncology Massage Training’ which led her further into studying Manual Lymphatic Drainage with the internationally accredited ‘Dr Vodder Akademie’ where she graduated at the Vodder Clinic in Austria in 2014. In 2016 she completed her professional Scenar Training with RITM Scenar Australia.

"I believe that any therapy is most effective when science and intuition are combined to achieve an individual approach for each person. No two people are the same, therefore no two treatments should be the same. A deep tissue massage can be wonderful for one person yet for another, it can have an undesired effect. It is up to the person and the therapist to find techniques that suit and can be helpful in dealing with specific health challenges."
