Looking for the best version of yourself? Well, you've found part of your 'search' team, right here at Chiro Connect!
Dr Kate Bickley, Wanaka Chiropractor, B.App.Sc (Clinical), B. Chiro.Sc.
Hello there! I arrived here in Wanaka in 2013, after living and working in Scotland and Australia in the 8 years after graduating my 5-year Chiropractic degree (RMIT, Australia, 2005).
I love working with families, and the challenge presented by the professional athletes here in Wanaka.
I have a special interest in children with learning difficulties (and adults as well!). In fact, I had a large multidisciplinary practice just north of Brisbane, where around half my clients there were under 12 years old, and a lot of those children we worked with were kids with learning and behavioural difficulties.
I am lucky enough that Chiropractic Care is my hobby as well as my work. One of the things that drives me with Chiropractic, is the ability to help people in restoring their balance, health, strength and vitality- all through improving your brain-body connection.
Working as holistically as possible, I combine physical and neurological care with nutrition and lifestyle advice where necessary. I also enjoy working in with other health professionals, creating a team to help you in finding the best version of yourself.
In my spare time, as well as learning more ways to help you through attending seminars, I spend time with my family, hike, camp, and travel. New experiences promote growth, and growth keeps us moving forward!
I look forward to meeting you, and your family, soon, to help you on your way to becoming the best versions of yourselves!
Melissa Lane- Office Receptionist and all round 'Ideas Man'
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.
