Dr. Janette McCormick (BSC (Chiro), DICCP)


Janette is passionate about enhancing the whole family’s health through chiropractic.  Since her graduation from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2000 she has been in private practice in both New Zealand and Australia. In 2007 Janette completed a three-year post-graduate Diplomate in Chiropractic Paediatrics.

Janette works with local midwives and lactation consultants assisting women through pregnancy to achieve a balanced spine and pelvis; that may help with natural birth.  Babies who are unsettled, having problems with breastfeeding either through latching difficulties or tongue-tie may also benefit from the gentle balancing techniques that Janette uses.
