Wellington Chiropractor, Dr Andrea Lindsay

I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones… my Father is a Chiropractor! So I have been lucky enough to have received Chiropractic care, with all its benefits, since birth.

Choosing the path to Chiropractic was easy

I have always been interested in the body and how we can encourage our own health through natural means. After spending some time working in a hospital, it really hit home to me how important it is for people to take care of themselves, take responsibility for their health to prevent long term chronic pain and illness. I decided then that I wanted to help people achieve better health, to keep them well and out of pain rather than being an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. To study Chiropractic was the obvious decision…

Studying Chiropractic in New Zealand

I was lucky enough to be able to study Chiropractic here in New Zealand. We have a great, purpose built Chiropractic College in Auckland that boasts some of the best curriculum, teaching and facilities in the world, and there are always many international students on the College enrollment. To study Chiropractic it takes 5 years of intensive study, with little time for much else. My most enjoyable time at the College was when we were accepted into the Health Centre, which allowed us to work with our own clients. This was a great learning time for me, it gave us a bit of a break from the books, and really cemented my decision that I wanted to be a Chiropractor.

The rewards are endless

Our objective for care is to help people to be the best they can through relieving their pain and enabling their central nervous system to operate as it is supposed to. We try to arm our patients with knowledge, so they have an understanding of how the health of their spine influences their overall well-being. The flow on effects of having a well-functioning spine are so numerous and not recognised by many. Seeing the changes within our patients who just thought they were coming in to get rid of their pain is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a Chiropractor.

I’m married to Brandon, we met in Whistler, Canada and he made the move out to New Zealand. We have a daughter Amelia who is six and a son Thomas who has just turned four – they keep me in my toes!  I love Yoga, have a large cookbook collection and traveling is something I’m always wanting to do more of.
