Dr Adele Baljeu knew from a young age that she wanted to be involved in a health profession as soon as she discovered how fascinating the human body is! It wasn’t until she visited a Chiropractor in year 12 that she knew Chiropractic was the career for her. She found it incredible how chiropractic care can change someone’s life completely with a natural approach, directing attention to the source of the problem rather than looking at symptoms. So after 5 years of study at Murdoch University, she graduated with honors.
Dr Adele believes that chiropractic is an essential part of optimal health and
wellbeing. She enjoys allowing people to reach their optimal potential and thereby enabling them to do the things they love. She has a passion for helping as many people as possible, and during her chiropractic studies, Dr Adele undertook a trip to Siliguri in India, where she was able to give chiropractic care to hundreds of the world’s poorest people, which was an incredibly humbling experience.
During her second year of university Adele became intrigued with the Gonstead technique and has spent years learning and developing her skills in this form of chiropractic. Dr Adele uses the Gonstead technique, because she is a bit of a perfectionist and loves the complete and thorough nature of the analysis, x-rays and adjustments. Dr Adele also has done extra training in extremity work (think all things feet, hands, shoulders, knees etc.) and has done a 2 year post graduate diploma in paediatrics.
Outside of work, her interests include fresh air, getting back to nature on the farm, nutrition, exercise, sewing and gardening. She enjoys practicing what she preaches and educating her clients about overall health.
