Collaroy is Talking Behind my Back ©

Collaroy is Talking Behind my Back ©


I hear people say, “I love what you do, I tell people about it all the time”.

It happened again recently.  Someone said, “I want everyone to experience this, I can’t stop talking about it!”  When I asked what she tells people, the reply was very familiar, “Well, what you do is hard to explain”.


The people of Collaroy are talking about a new path to health…

But no one knows what to say!

If I can share one thing with you, it’s that a series of Light Touch adjustments doesn’t add something you don’t already possess.  The Light Touch Process conditions your system to reconnect and discover more of your natural, vital self.  The feelings you experience and the health benefits you enjoy are because of what we remove.

There are many reasons why Light Touch Chiropractic obtains such profound results, some quite complicated.  We can explain it via Prigogine’s Nobel Prize winning work on living systems and chaos theory.  Or through evolutionary biology and functional neurology.  We can also look at the neuro-matrix theories of the latest pain science.  These are all interesting and valid, but let us start with a simple way to communicate what I do…


Picture yourself swimming along through life

Except that whilst you are swimming you’re wearing a backpack.

As you travel life’s journey your backpack collects rocks. You don’t really notice the rocks increasing because it has been occurring gradually, your whole life, one here and one there.

Until you’re where you are today – trying your best to swim through life, but loaded down with a backpack full of rocks. The catch is that up until now you don’t know that the backpack is there, so you think that its normal for life to be dragging you down…

It isn’t.


What if those rocks were removed?

You’d be thinking, Wow! Swimming can be painless, swimming can be easy. In fact, swimming through life is fun again. You’d be able to travel along your journey with more enjoyment and less effort.

Even if the water becomes a little rough, things will be ok, because you’re floating so much higher now.

…And that’s how you explain it.

What I do is remove the rocks from your backpack

That’s why I developed the unique Light Touch Chiropractic process.  The ‘rocks in your backpack’ that weigh you down are actually layers of Physically Retained Stress.

The build up and cause tension, imbalances and challenge your body’s ability to create and maintain health.  The sensations you feel during a Light Touch adjustment, the ease of breath and that light, floating relaxation is your system gently releasing the physically retained stress and finding a new level ease.


Releasing Physically Retained Stress is the key to health

A reduction in stress physiology allows your body to naturally relieve pain, resolve injuries and re-balance to a higher level of function. Whether new or chronic conditions, they are both subject to the same accumulation of stress in your system.

You’ll notice more energy without all those rocks to carry around.  For athletes, this also allows increased recovery and performance.

Removing the stress that isn’t you, allows the person you really are to shine brighter.  A nerve system that is clear of stress has greater clarity, providing an opportunity to see yourself, and your world in a new light.  An opportunity to realise your full potential.
