Chiropractic is the science, philosophy and art that utilises the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery

Our aim/Focus

The Zuma Health team all share an understanding with our community, to strive for wellness and prevention as part of a vitalistic paradigm. We see Health as the basis upon which Happiness and Fulfilment deepen in potential and we support this for ourselves and our patients. It is our goal to support our clients and each other to live and manifest our highest mind and body potential.

Our History

As a young chiropractic postgrad, Dr Matthew Scheier got experience over several years in a number of busy clinics all whilst being nurtured by amazing mentors. In 2007 he was presented with the opportunity to mix his experience with his passion for vitalistic wellness, and start his own clinic steeped in these principles.

This is when Zuma Health was born and started up near Treetops shopping centre before locating to our current practice on West Burleigh Rd. The community embraced this clinic and Dr Matts passion, seeing Zuma Health build steadily throughout the years.

We love that many of Dr Matts patients have been with Zuma Health since its inception and they have watched the team grow with other handpicked practitioners and support staff. In that time babies have become young men and women, and young men and women have become parents and parents have become grandparents as the cycles of life grow with us and our community.


Our Philosophy

We believe that when individuals function better they become healthier and happier. This has a natural flow on effect where individuals positively influence their families and communities. As we assist people toward their optimal potential we amass a tipping point where we find ourselves living in a healthier, happier community, and that is where we want to live.

Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise. With an optimally functioning spine and nervous system, your body is better able to heal itself. That's because your spine houses your central nervous system. Your Brain and nervous system control feelings, movement, and all function to all organs, systems and cells. Chiropractic works by restoring healthy function to the nervous system by removing interference that may be impairing normal health through specific chiropractic adjustments, allowing your body to heal itself creating greater connections within the body. A healthy spine and a healthy lifestyle are your contributors to optimal health.

Chiropractic's early philosophy was rooted in vitalism, spiritual inspiration and rationalism. A philosophy based on deduction from an irrefutable doctrine helped distinguish chiropractic from medicine and allowed chiropractors to establish themselves as an autonomous profession. 

The Power that made the body, heals the body
