Chiropractic Care for the Whole Family: Supporting the Body, Naturally

Advanced Health Chiropractic

Founded by Ash and Katie Pritchard, at Advanced Health Chiropractic they understand that when your body is well-connected, you and your family are better equipped to handle and thrive in the life you choose. Their close-knit team is dedicated to nurturing healthy families by supporting the body to do what it was designed to do, naturally. Their goal is to support as many families in their community to live life to its fullest. Here they talk to The Natural Parent Magazine about the inspiration behind Advanced Health Chiropractic, the pros and cons of running their own business, and their hopes and dreams for the future.

The passion:

Advanced Health Chiropractic was born out of a passion for families – you only need to set foot in the practice to understand why. With a beautiful playground centered right in the middle of our practice, we firmly believe that health comes from the inside out.

It wouldn’t be unusual here to be popping in for your regular adjustment (or tune-up as we call it) and to see kids, grandparents, carers or even the odd cat or dog around!

We’re crazy, and we’re crazy in love with our community and to see them express health so vibrantly is simply the best.

The launch:

Advanced Health Chiropractic came to life over 21 years ago. Built upon the physical foundations of two previous chiropractic offices, founders Ash and Katie Pritchard took a very different spin on things. Knocking down walls and building others, adding x-ray facilities, neurological scans, a playground (with an epic slide!), organic apples at the door, a dedicated bubs’ hub and all sorts of other magic – they created a haven for families of all ages and stages.

Whether you are sitting in reception and enjoying the Air New Zealand-inspired chiropractic quiz, you are relaxing on the couches, or feeding your newborn baby, you will meet people here at all stages of life. And there’s a very good reason for that.

The innovation:

Like the families we serve, Advanced Health Chiropractic has grown over the years. We are a close-knit team and we all enjoy the privilege of seeing families grow across generations at our practice.

Our podcast chat on this is testament to the incredible community around us, both domestic and international. These bite-sized episodes are another avenue for us to really unleash and spread the magic to those families who not only want to lead healthy and vibrant lives, but who also CRAVE it. It is such an honour to hear our people talk about what they are learning on the podcast, the guests they love and the pearls they can incorporate into their own family’s well-being.

Yin and Yang:

Many of our practice members were born here, their parents were adjusted from birth, or they have joined us along the way through an understanding of the value of a healthy nervous system.

Although we have a real focus on nurturing healthy families, everyone’s journey of getting there can look quite different. As the years go on, we are incredibly lucky to have an even greater understanding on where chiropractic fits into the birth space, brain and learning development, colic, immune health, high performance, brain injury and stroke recovery, supporting those who experience ADHD and other neurological diversities.

The big focus for us will always be resilience. As human beings we are designed to handle and adapt to stress well, it is only after the ability to do so is outweighed that we will see signs and symptoms of dysfunction. By keeping our nervous system healthy and adaptable, we witness our community of families build resilience and be well equipped to take on life.
