“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you
so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”

..This sounds like Light Touch Chiropractic at Collaroy


You are not broken, you don’t need to be fixed. You are a perfect reflection of a natural ecosystem that is striving to create health.  We just need to remove the things that are interfering with your amazing self – remove what isn’t you.  So you can enjoy all that potential you have for health.

As an engineer turned health care professional I’m drawn to things that are logical and practical.  This means providing an elegant solution to help you enjoy your true health potential.

Many people visit Light Touch Chiropractic on the Northern Beaches to correct physical imbalances, pain, injury and for increased performance.  We know that the most effective way to achieve this is by addressing the cause.  This means reducing stress that has accumulated in your nerve system.

Reducing stress that is physically held in the nerve system helps you with “un-becoming everything that isn’t really you“.  It’s a key principle of our unique, Light Touch Process.  It’s what makes us different and allows us to provide gentle, effective solutions that are personalised specifically to you.


The stresses retained deep in your nerve system are the result of past physical, chemical, and mental/emotional experiences that your body still hasn’t forgotten.  The stressful incident may be long gone, but your body remembers it and is still carrying residual layers of its effects.

You can store this unresolved experience as increased pain sensitivity, unbalanced tension in your muscles, postural distortions, poor movement patterns, anxiety, reduced energy and even difficulty concentrating.

Layers of retained stress leave your system locked in a mild but chronic state of defence or ‘chronic stress physiology’.  This state affects every single function in the body and challenges its ability to find balance and create health.

It even alters how you think.  Chronic stress causes the parts of your brain which are responsible for learning, concentration and memory to become less effective and, in extreme cases, to shrink.

Everyone is carrying layers of stress. It compromises health and enjoyment of life.  It’s hard to “be who you were meant to be in the first place” when your system’s natural processes are dealing with the chronic interference of retained stress.


Fortunately you have an extremely effective mechanism for reducing and integrating retained stress hidden away in your spinal cord.  The spinal cord has super highways of nerves running from your body up to your brain.

When activated by the Light Touch Process, these pathways help bypass the anxiety centres of your brain.  This resets your system, releasing the bound-up tension and retained stress, allowing your system to once again find balance.

Physical therapies which don’t specifically target and systematically reduce your underlying retained stress can only ever be a band-aid solution.  By using gentle contacts at specific points on and around your spine, the Light Touch Process™ reminds your system of its own ability to reduce retained stress and restore clarity and balance.

Thus naturally improving healing and performance via your nerve system’s own self correcting abilities.  This is why Light Touch Chiropractic goes beyond ‘fixing pain’ and is able to partner you on your journey to enjoying a higher level of health.

Removing physically stored stress actually IS “unbecoming everything that isn’t really you”.  It is the key to discovering the true potential of “who you were meant to be in the first place“…  Discover the difference yourself.
