In addition to a Bachelor of Science, (with majors in Psychology and Physiology) from Auckland University, Angela completed a degree in Chiropractic from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2001. Since graduating Angela has become certified in Applied Kinesiology and nutrition as well as completing many other post graduate courses in Chiropractic techniques and management. Previously Angela had been working with Dr Bryan Hale in Christchurch as a specialist in the Hale Technique. With her belief in an integrated approach to health care she is able to offer a large amount of experience in dealing with physical, emotional and mental imbalances. Currently, Angela is completing her post graduate training in Functional Medicine, which will further her knowledge in the health and wellness field and allow her to become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP).
As a specialist in the Hale Technique, her care involves gentle Chiropractic Techniques, Applied Kinesiology, Acupressure, Homeopathic, Nutritional therapies and an understanding of the fundamental relationship between mind, body and emotions. The Hale technique is able to integrate the physical, emotional and mental levels of health and Angela has experienced its benefits first hand. Angela regularly attends seminars and reads extensively to further her knowledge on health and wellness. Starting out as a chiropractic patient while she was at Auckland University for reoccurring headaches that were progressively getting worse, she learnt that chiropractic is more than fixing headaches or back pain and is actually about improving health and wellness. She changed her science degree and added the chiropractic degree so she could help people with their health issues.
Angela's passion lies in helping people with stress related disorders and providing strategies on how people can get back into balance. Prolonged physical and emotional stress lead into a variety of health related issues such as digestive problems, sleep issues, fatigue, depression, anxiety, headaches, low immunity and emotional fragility to name a few. With the Hale Technique Angela is able to get to the root cause of the problem and guide people in addressing their particular issue.
Angela balances her time at Calder Chiropractic Centre with seminars in health and wellness as well as spending time with her family, sailing and the gym fill her spare time. Having a young son also means she is great with relating to young people. Angela believes that everyone can benefit from having “health check ups” and that being proactive in life and health can reward us with many benefits in years to come. Angela’s passion for health and wellness in all levels makes her an asset to Calder Chiropractic Centre.
