Get to Know Us


Jayne Caldwell-Smith, Chiropractic Assistant

Jayne has had chiropractic care all of her life and believes in the health benefits of being regularly checked. She wanted to help others lead a subluxation-free lifestyle.

“The most fulfilling part of being a CA is to support our chiropractor to ensure our clients feel welcome and cared for whilst keeping them on track with their appointment schedule.”

Jayne loves seeing the difference between when the client first visits and when they start to notice changes and then when the rest of the world can see it!

Empowering others to experience these same benefits on their wellbeing journey is something that Deb loves. “I enjoy seeing the positive change and results created in our clients based on the care, service, and information provided and shared.”
