How Selina can help you

Have you tried a number of different types of treatment without satisfying results or a resolution to your problem? At Freedom Chiropractic, we work to resolve the core issues within your body, so that you can have permanent relief from pain. Whether it is back pain, neck pain and migraines, shoulder problems, knee and foot pain, sports injuries, babies and children or pregnancy-induced pain – at Freedom Chiropractic our priority is to help you.

In my experience the majority of neuromuscular problems can be traced back to an early childhood imbalance within the hip and pelvic system. As long as this imbalance remains you will only experience temporary relief because following most treatments this hip imbalance will drive your structure back to a state of imbalance, tension, irritation and pain. My approach firstly diagnoses and corrects your original hip and pelvic imbalance to remove its effect on the rest of the structure. It is then easy to correct and resolve your more specific problem as the body will naturally realign itself.

What does a Chiropractor do?

Chiropractic recognises that the human body has an innate ability and drive to heal itself naturally. The body is an intelligent, self-healing, organised being. The nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord and a network of nerves throughout the body. It controls, communicates with and co-ordinates all the other systems of the body, receiving information about what is happening internally and externally and controlling the function of almost every cell, tissue and organ.

What a chiropractor does is identify sources of interference to the function of the nervous system and removes them so the nervous system can restore and heal the body. Sources of interference can be physical such as trauma or poor posture; chemical toxins from a poor diet, smoking or medication; or emotional stress. Chiropractic adjustments to the joints restore normal alignment and movement throughout the spine and extremities to address physical interferences. Here at Freedom Chiropractic we can also address biochemical issues using muscle testing to determine whether you need to remove toxins, heal the gut or maybe balance hormones and what might be the specific food or supplements to use to restore your health. Our goal is to help our clients develop normally, adjust to environmental stresses and achieve optimal health and vitality.

Biochemical Kinesiology

Do you have health issues such as fatigue, cognitive problems, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating/gas, digestive issues, food intolerances, hormonal problems or other unexplained illnesses?

Selina uses Biochemical Kinesiology to find underlying problems to these health issues, and to determine the optimal herbal/nutritional supplements and lifestyle recommendations to correct any deficiency or excess present. Underlying problems may be various toxins or pathogens, gut dysfunction and microbiome imbalance, hormonal imbalances or blockages in important biochemical pathways.

Kinesiology is a system that uses muscle testing to evaluate the individual for deficiency or excess that may be causing health issues. Supplements can also be tested to determine which are best suited to the individual along with optimal dosage and times to be taken.

Firstly, we provide you with a simple questionnaire that collates a review of your past health history and current symptoms. Then we perform the testing to determine underlying issues and imbalances. Various supplements will be tested and those best suited for you will be recommended along with any lifestyle adjustments. A follow up session will be scheduled to re-test and determine the next steps.

Selina Thompson

(BPhEd, MChiro) ACC Registered Provider

I consider it a privilege to be able to help people to live a full, natural, healthy lifestyle. I have always believed in the power of nature and when I discovered the Chiropractic philosophy that the human body has the innate ability to heal itself given the right conditions, and I saw it in action, I knew that this was my path and my contribution to society. Initially I completed a Physical Education degree majoring in Physiology and Biomechanics and then worked with athletes as a Sports Scientist in Sydney. I then completed a Remedial massage course and a Masters degree in Chiropractic. I was very fortunate to work with and be mentored by an extremely experienced and talented Osteopath, Malcolm Jack, for 12 years, This has produced an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal problems that is extremely effective and produces outstanding results in a very short period of time. Over the last few years I have been working towards expanding my knowledge and techniques to be able to also help my clients with biochemical issues such as toxicity, gut, hormonal and energy problems. I am continually amazed by the body’s ability to heal and restore itself using only physical therapies, natural nutrition and by removing toxins and trauma. I am always striving to achieve the best possible result and to empower my clients to optimise their health and lifestyle. I look forward to continuing this journey of discovery for as long as possible.
