Back, Neck & Joint Pain.
Experiencing back, neck or joint pain can be frustrating and debilitating. It can make easy tasks painful and have a major impact on your day to day life.
Chiropractic care is a natural and non invasive treatment that aims to provide lasting relief and may help to improve comfort in your back, neck or other joints using your body’s natural resources to treat both the symptoms and most importantly, the underlying problem.
At Zuma Health we are qualified and proud to offer chiropractic care, in conjunction with other modalities such as kinesiology, massage, myotherapy and more to help get your body functioning optimally.
Stress, Anxiety & Depression
At Zuma Health, we recognise that mental health is intimately connected with your physical well-being and overall health condition. We are passionate about supporting people who may be struggling with their mental state and educating people on their mind-body connection.
Anxiety and depression disorders are increasingly common and are nothing to feel embarrassed or ashamed about. A psychiatrist or clinical psychologist are qualified to evaluate people with an anxiety, depressive or mental health disorder. At this stage no one in the Zuma Health team is qualified to evaluate or diagnose, however we work closely with counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists to help achieve the best results.
For many patients improved mental health comes as a wonderful side effect of improving general wellness, nutrition and supporting the spine and nervous system.
