Dr Kate Bickley, Wanaka Chiropractor


Dr Kate Bickley graduated from RMIT, Melbourne, in 2005 after completing the 5-year full-time degrees in Chiropractic and Clinical Science. Over the years since Kate has lived and worked in Queensland for over 5 years, then travelled to beautiful Scotland where she lived and worked for 2 years. Kate has been living and working back in Wanaka since 2013. 

A Southland girl born and bred, Kate discovered chiropractic at 13yrs old when she went with her Mum to the chiropractor to find out what an adjustment was. After a very active childhood, Kate was fascinated by the potential of chiropractic care.

She loved the fact that Chiropractic Care could help people in restoring their balance, health, strength and well-being through improving the function of the nervous system!

Kate loves being a chiropractor for the potential chiropractic care has to help anyone of any age, and from any walk of life, adapting care to suit anyone's personal needs. 

Working with the whole body, Kate combines physical care and nutritional/ lifestyle advice to enhance your body’s natural healing ability. Kate is particularly interested in working with pregnant women, babies, and children with learning difficulties. Working with nutrition and movement, Kate also keeps our local Wanaka athletes on top of their game with optimal Health, Strength and Vitality.

Kate loves spending time outdoors, enjoying hiking into the hills (both along the bottom and to the top!), rock-climbing, and skiing. Luckily, the Wanaka landscape and outdoor focus inspires and encourages all of these 'down-time' pursuits!



Melissa Lane- Office Receptionist and all round 'Ideas Man'

Melissa Lane- Chiro Connect Wanaka

Melissa grew up in Queenstown and spent almost 10 years living and working overseas. She was working hard with her husband to purchase a lifestyle property in Central Otago and move back home to be around friends and family.


She joined Chiro Connect in July 2016 and has been an excellent support to our team.  Supporting Charlie initially, Melissa has been fantastic in providing Charlie's ability to take maternity leave, while continuing the smooth operation of the practice. 


She now enjoys a healthy lifestyle working in the district, and working around her home in her orchard and garden to produce more of her own food. Fixing their home up takes up a lot of the weekends, but Melissa and her husband Gerald, along with their dog Bonsai, still find time for kayaking and hiking around our beautiful district.
