Dr Gretchen Balas

Integral Chiropractor (BHScChiro,MClinChiro)

Hi, I’m Dr Gretchen Balas.  I love helping people find their health through Chiropractic!  I graduated from RMIT with distinction, and hold a Bachelor of Health Science (Chiropractic) and Masters in Clinical Chiropractic.  In my former career, I worked in business administration, accounting and financial planning.  My love for Chiropractic came after a recommendation from a work colleague to seek help for my chronically painful neck – aggravated from a combination of past horse riding accidents and long hours sitting at a desk job. That first adjustment literally changed my life! I never realised the power of Chiropractic on my health and wellbeing. I embarked on the 5 year university journey because I knew I could change the lives of other people and the community, just like it had for me. Initially my chiropractic career was based on manual adjusting, however over time I discovered lower force techniques such as Network Spinal and Torque Release Technique– which I found to make more sustainable changes in the long term, and change old patterns which kept me repeating the same aspects in my life. I have attended many chiropractic technique seminars since beginning my Chiropractic journey, and recently have completed the Integral Energetics 2 year course from Tree of Life Integral Centre.  I love keeping up to date with Chiropractic and health science research, including new developments in quantum healing, energy and functional medicine, nutrition and of course, I don’t mind some cosmic inspiration!

This time I have used my intuition and followed my souls message to return to full health by using natural remedies, nutrients and live food which is especially important after having undergone surgery and trauma. This is helping me heal and has empowered me and my family immensely.Having experienced cancer a second time, has made me research and realise that dealing with it naturally is the way to go and connecting me to the right people has lead me to amazing health results. I have been guided and truly Blessed. I have a real empathy and compassion for my clients and believe the healing journey they are about to experience with me will be a life-changing one.I can help you achieve Freedom For Life!
