Member COCA
Member Advanced Biostructural Correction Australasia

After finishing her degree at Macquarie University, Stephanie moved to the UK to further her Chiropractic career. Working for 3 years in Scotland as a part of the largest chiropractic group in the UK , Stephanie came into contact with Advanced BioStructural Correction (ABC TM), a chiropractic technique that uses structural correction to improve the patients health and wellness. In 2009, she returned to Australia to be one of a handful of certified ABC practitioners in the country, practicing in, and serving Sydney’s Hills District since then.

Stephanie has witnessed first hand the benefits of correcting misalignments in the body, especially from an early age, and being a mother to three young children herself, believes strongly in giving children strong structural foundations to grow on from the start. She maintains though, that it is never too late to start looking after yourself, and has adjusted patients from every age group, including some who are well into their 90’s.
