Hardip Kaur is Northmead Family Chiropractic’s Principal Chiropractor. She has been in practice for 12 years and is a passionate holistic Chiropractor who endeavours to empower her patients to make better health choices. She addresses the structural, nutritional and emotional components behind spinal misalignments.
“I was first exposed to Chiropractic when I started studying in 1999, and what led me to Chiropractic was the yearning to make a difference to people’s health and lives naturally. As I was studying Chiropractic, the Chiropractic Philosophy and concept highly resonated with me. The brain and the nervous system are the master controllers of the body, and if we allow them to flow without interference to the rest of the body, all cells and organs will receive the messages and signals to function correctly”.
A member of the CAA and the Spinal Research Foundation, Hardip is an advocate for natural healthcare and a healthy lifestyle. She lives by the motto “Move well, eat well and think well”. She practices various chiropractic techniques ranging from the old school manual adjustments to activator method. Her purpose is to help every patient, restore, heal and flourish.
Outside of work Hardip enjoys the great outdoors, quality time with friends and family and enjoys a social game of tennis.
