Dr. Carina Calder

DC (Chiropractic), ICAK, MNZCA, DACNB, IAFNR, AAFN

Originally from Sweden, studied at AECC in Bournemouth U.K. and graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1981. I chose chiropractic because I wanted to be able to help people in our community function better. Even before graduating, I had realised that health is much more than a well-functioning musculoskeletal system. My journey into further study started and has not stopped yet.

Over the years my area of interest has changed and evolved, I started with Applied Kinesiology, learned as much as I could about nutrition, homeopathy and emotional wellbeing, the importance of posture, balance, and foot mechanics.
The next step was hormones and fertility, having healthy babies which lead me into Paediatric Neurology, which grew into Functional Neurology (FN). The study of FN occupies most of my so-called “spare time", it is a most fascinating science.

What is my passion? Being able to provide balance and health to the families in my community, to serve humankind at the highest level!
