Dr Wendy Hickleton has joined our team bringing 28 years of chiropractic experience from the UK and Australia.
Dr Wendy Hickleton attended the AECC chiropractic college in England and has since gained certification in Chiropractic paediatrics from RMIT in Melbourne. Dr Wendy emigrated to Australia with her family in 2006 and they are delighted to now be Australian Citizens.
“I was introduced to chiropractic as a teenager when my father, an orthodontist, wanted to discover cranial and spinal mechanics order to improve his overall quality of orthodontic care to his patients. He sought the advice of a chiropractor and took me with him! I was so impressed with the value of a holistic approach to health care that I decided there and then to make chiropractic my career.
I have enjoyed working with dentists, nutritionists and other health care practitioners over the years to help all my patients from babies to the elderly.”
As a wife, mother and chiropractor I can empathise with patients juggling careers, family and also trying to do their best for their family’s health. Dr Wendy uses SOT, cranial and activator techniques.

Since then, my younger brother and sister have also become chiropractors as well!’. Dr Alyx also has experience giving chiropractic care back to countries living in a 3rd world status.
Dr Alyx has participated in multiple National and International Chiropractic mission trips including Cambodia and the Philippines along side several Doctors, Dentists, Physiotherapists and Nurses.
‘Volunteering Chiropractic care in areas that have very little access to basic health care let alone any knowledge of Chiropractic was extremely rewarding. These community members couldn’t speak English, but trusted we were there to serve and their thankful smile post-adjustment was heart-warming. Chiropractic benefits everybody and every walk of life’ .
