As a chiropractor, Heidi recognises that we are all different. This means that a treatment that works for one person will not necessarily work for another. As chiropractic developed over the years, so did the different techniques. Heidi utilises a number of these including Diversified, Gonstead, SOT, Thompson, Flexion-Distraction and Activator and also uses several soft tissue techniques.
She especially enjoys working with children because they respond relatively quickly and don't have a lifetime of physical trauma behind them. To the same extent, she also loves the feeling that she can often help geriatric patients whom everyone else has given up on. Making a difference is what makes it a pleasure to be a chiropractor
Heidi has worked in Perthshire since November 2000. She set up her first clinic in 2003 and opened her new premises in Luncarty in January 2007. This brought with it an opportunity to expand the health continuum and she now has a team that benefits from cross-referral network including 2 Chiropractors, Chiropodist, Sports Massage therapist, a Reiki and Emotional Freedom Technique Therapist and a Reflexologist.
Heidi is currently in Year 2 of a Masters Degree in Paediatric Chiropractic at AECC in Bournemouth. She will eventually graduate with an MSc in Applied Professional Practice (Chiropractic Paediatrics).
Her recent topics of research include Suck dysfunction in newborn babies, utilising the Webster Technique in pregnant women, specifically in cases where a baby is breech, and the benefits and risks of using pacifiers.
Heidi is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and is a member of the Scottish Chiropractic Association. She is also a long standing member of the Chiropractic Association of Australia.
