Born and raised in rural Northern NSW, Kate's love for health and the body started when she won her first athletics race at age 8. During her many years of study – a Masters of Chiropractic and post grad training in acupuncture, clinic neurology and advanced injury rehabilitation, amongst other things - Kate also developed a passion for family wellness, in particular pregnancy and paediatric care. In any one day, Kate will perform adjustments, mobilisations, soft tissue techniques, dry needling, kinesiology, diet and lifestyle advice, and even meditation for her clients; and what sets her apart is her commitment to not only addressing the physical ailments of her patients but also the chemical, emotional and spiritual connections they have to the issues and ailments they are facing. Together, she and husband Nick Wood own and run Healthspace Clinics, a series of healthcare clinics across Sydney.
