Dr Richard Lee

B.Chiro, B.Sc. (Chiro)

Richard studied Chiropractic at Murdoch University and had the privilege to join Hills Natural Health Centre after graduation. He loves the community and the spirit of the Hills and recently decided to make a big leap of faith and commit to the clinic for many years to come.

Richard has a passion for nutrition, health and fitness and prior to obtaining his Chiropractic degree had many years of experience in the health and fitness industry. This has helped him to gain the necessary experience to restore and to detect structural distortions (which are a compensation of the body to stress). He has great understanding of how stressors (physical, chemical and emotional) may interfere with the central nervous system and lead to health problems.

Richard looks at the whole body not specific joints or muscles. He uses Sacro-Occipital Techniques (S.O.T.) which works very quickly to reduce pain and put your body on the road to recovery. Years of training has been put in to ensuring that SOT is a safe, gentle and very effective technique. He also uses other modalities such as; Manual Adjustment, Activator Method, Neural Organisation Technique, Soft Tissue Therapy (Gua Sha – similar to Graston Technique), Organic Reflexology, Kinesio Therapeutic Taping Technique and Physical Rehabilitation. Richard can work with you to tailor a program to suit your specific needs.

Richard is a truly caring and nurturing person and you will instantly feel at ease with him. He strives for Excellency in his work and this has built him a good reputation within the community. He loves music and sings with the church choir. He loves a joke and enjoys a good laugh. Richard’s vision is to be the Greatest Healer and to make alternative and natural health therapy accessible and affordable to everyone.

Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles which have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin.

According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of chi through channels known as meridians.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.  Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Hypnosis when used in therapy (hypnotherapy) gives you greater control over your life. Hypnotherapy can effectively treat a range of emotional or mental health issues and is a safe and effective tool for directly accessing the subconscious mind.

Hypnotherapy is entirely patient-centred, based on the premises that the “inner knower” has the answers to various problems and to heal, people need to access their deepest mind or subconscious.

Hypnotherapy is often helpful in redefining emotional content and attitudes, as well as addressing a wide range of conditions including dysfunctional habits, anxiety, stress-related illness, pain management and personal development.
