"Our team knows that the human body is capable of incredible things when it's naturally well supported. We enjoy educating and encouraging our patients throughout their healthcare journey and seeing the positive impact that chiropractic has on them. We don't confine our work to our office, but collaborate with other healthcare professionals who specialise in areas such as exercise, massage, Pilates, nutrition and medicine to ensure your body is well looked after.
We would love to help you!"
Also known as Ed, you will find him to be a well rounded, down to earth and caring practitioner dedicated to helping his community. He has a special interest in neurology and neurological based disorders, nutrition, and childhood learning and development. He has furthered his education with various studies in neurology and advanced structural corrective techniques including cranial correction.
Ed has been practicing in Tauranga since 2009, and established Precision Chiropractic in 2012. Prior to this, Ed spent several years in a chiropractic practice in Albany, Auckland.
Ed and his wife Chelsea, who is a local school teacher, have two sons Ra and Levi. As a family they enjoy getting out and about and enjoying the local area.
After 17 years living and working in the UK, the lure of family, the white sands and world class sailing of Tauranga and Mount Maunganui enticed Ali back home.
Ali started her Chiropractic training in New Zealand and went on to complete an honours degree in the UK in 2002. She has worked as an associate, a locum and had her own practice in Bristol for 8 years. Ali has accrued a wide range of skills through post graduate training and continued professional development. Areas of particular interest for Ali lie in the Chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy, cranial care for babies, and biomechanical dysfunction from sports injury.
While not at work you’ll find Ali in or on the water. Racing a Nacra 17 (calling it a 'sailing boat' doesn't do it justice) in the harbour or swimming around the Mount.
Ed and Ali will be working together to ensure you get the best of both their skill sets. If you'd like to see Ali to review how you're doing (or even just to change things up) give us a call to book in. You can also book with Ali online through our website. She can't wait to meet you!
Shenée manages the administration side of your care and keeps our office ticking along so that your chiropractor is focused on YOU.
She holds a degree in health science and has an extensive background in ballet and Latin dance, having represented NZ competitively for several years. Spending most of her career in a surgery-focused environment, she values the holistic and natural mindset of Ed and his patients, and loves seeing first-hand the various health conditions that benefit from chiropractic care. Feel free to ask her about the natural ways she manages her own health conditions.
You can't miss Fiona's warm smile when you walk into our office. She and her husband have two lovely teenagers and were long-time patients of Ed's before she joined the team.
Originally from Wellington, she spent 10 years in the beautiful Wairarapa before moving to the Bay. If she's not chatting with you in our office you'll find her out walking her dogs and enjoying Tauranga's local activities.
The welcoming voice you will hear on the other side of the phone, or as you walk through the door. Rachel's bubbly personality completes our friendly front desk team!
Rachel was an early childhood educator for over a decade and loves seeing how children benefit from chiropractic care. We know you and your littlies will have great chats with her during your visits. Ask her about her love of adventurous activities - she doesn't shy away from a good skydive!
