It’s Effective. Because the nervous system controls your entire body, and chiropractic care helps restore nervous system integrity, chiropractic care has been known to help a variety of health issues.
It’s Natural. Simply put, chiropractic care doesn’t add chemicals to your body. And it doesn’t remove parts. Instead, it seeks to restore proper control and regulation of your body so health can return, naturally.
Our bodies need a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and unprocessed fats. However, if a breakdown occurs our bodies often need a boost in these key nutrients to enable a swift proper healing response.
The Food Today
Nowadays, the soil that our foods are grown in are depleted and there has been an unhealthy shift towards eating more processed foods and foods higher in sugar content. This has meant that we often don’t absorb enough of the essential nutrients our bodies require from our diet alone. This is where nutritional medicines plays a vital role in assisting your recovery, while encouraging strong repair and proper function as a means to reduce future injury and disease.
How We Are Different
At Total Health Chiropractic our comprehensive history and examination allow us deeper insight into the nutritional and chemical factors that are preventing you from achieving optimal health and wellness. We use applied kinesiology in combination with the information gathered during consultation to assess areas of imbalance and dysfunction within different organs and systems of the body.Assessing the body in this way allows us to find areas of toxicity, deficiency or poor absorption. These areas can arise due to past and present lifestyle factors such as; poor diet, stress, food intolerance and digestive problems, gut flora imbalances, drug related side effects and nutrient interactions, incorrect supplementation and chemical or heavy metal toxicity.
Therapeutic Massage is a hands on therapy which manipulates the soft tissues of the body.
Focused treatment work is usually designed to address specific problems associated with chronic musculoskeletal pain and tension.
Whether it be to help your sports performance, for pure relaxation, to support your body through pregnancy or just to keep you functioning well, we believe everyone is able to benefit from the therapeutic benefits of massage.
A relaxation massage which improves circulation and assists with the removal of toxins in the body. Relaxes body and mind. This type of massage uses long flowing strokes and would usually involve light to medium pressure.
Trigger Point Release
Involves de-activating trigger points that cause localised pain. Manual pressure and vibration compression is used. Throughout the session there will be communication between you and the massage therapist regarding pain referral and thresholds.
Myofascial Release (MFR)
This involves the application of sustained pressure and movement in to the fascial systems to break down restrictions. This is done by stretching and/or dry skin rolling and doesn’t usually involve oils or waxes.
Dr. David Comely
I have studied for five years and attended the NZ College of Chiropractic. I especially enjoyed the technique classes as it appealed to my desire to be an expert technician in providing state-of-the-art chiropractic care. I have since carried out further study and am Internationally Certified in Applied Kinesiology. I have been privileged to work alongside Dr. Brian Kelly, a recent International Chiropractor Of the Year Award recipient.
I am devoted to improving the health of my community while helping people live life to the fullest and maximise their potential in life. I will do this by optimising their spine and nerve function and by enhancing their consciousness of what builds good health for them specifically as each person is unique and has a unique system with individual needs.
People I have seen who get the greatest benefits from chiropractic are those who are willing to make changes in their lifestyle if needed and who are open to gaining a greater understanding of health. The most moving aspect of practice is seeing people who have tried many healthcare disciplines in the past with no improvement, getting life-changing improvements from chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care to Enhance Self-Healing
Before studying chiropractic, nobody in my family, including myself had ever heard of or experienced chiropractic care. Then, I was introduced first hand to the philosophy and benefits of chiropractic care and how it had changed the lives of so many people around the world. Coming from a chinese family, the philosophy of the innate ability of the body to heal itself was familiar to me and my desire to help others is what brought me into the chiropractic profession. I love how chiropractic naturally enhances the body’s self healing mechanisms.
My five years of study at Otago University and the NZ College of Chiropractic left me well versed in biochemistry, anatomy and physiology and radiology, while providing a valuable platform of chiropractic clinical experience from which to build.
My primary goal as a chiropractor is to inspire and empower people to live their lives at an optimal level of function, through their realisation of the importance of a healthy spine and of maintaining the integrity of the nervous system. I also endeavour to raise awareness around the importance of nutrition, exercise and stress management and how it contributes to a healthier life.
At Total Health Chiropractic, our emphasis is on wellness and optimum function. I look forwad to helping you achieve these goals, while sharing with you, ways to proactively improve your health by adopting better lifestyle choices. Contact me today, by calling our office or email me..
Wellington Massage Therapist
A change in my life’s direction later in life, allowed me to pursue my passion for the ancient art of massage therapy, while satisfying my desire to learn more about the human body. I completed my Diploma in Therapeutic Massage at the New Zealand College of Massage in Wellington. Since graduating, I have worked in a number of different settings, such as community centres, private clinics and busy medical practices, which has allowed me to gain valuable experience which serves me well in practice today.
I am continually searching for deeper understanding of clinical complaints and one way I do this is through regularly studying new techniques to further develop my skillset.My experience has been that all too often, people suffer pain unnecessary which affects their enjoyment of life, when there are natural solutions to their problem, such as therapeutic massage.
My mission is to help my clients to get in touch with their body and to understand how they can feel great and get the most out of life.
If you have any questions about massage therapy or how it can help, please feel free to call us.
