Dr Louise Kingsford

B.Sc (Chiropractic), B. Chiropractic

Dr Louise Kingsford is a passionate, thorough and extremely knowledgeable chiropractor. Being a chiropractor allows her to combine her love of natural healthcare, healthy living and personal growth in a way that truly serves her clients.

Louise’s holistic approach which honours the mind–body connection has formed over years of self study and extensive chiropractic study both in Australia and overseas. Her formal training was at Murdoch University in Perth, from which she graduated at the top of her class with high distinction. She received multiple awards for academic excellence, including the prestigious Murdoch University Medal.

She is a talented and compassionate gentle chiropractor and understands that our physical, emotional and mental health are intertwined. Her passion and skill in low force chiropractic techniques has seen her volunteer to India and El Salvador. She is on the Board of Directors of Hands on India – a not-for-profit organisation that provides healthcare, education and community support.

Having recently moved to Melbourne, she is excited to serve the community with her gentle, integrated approach. Louise has a special interest in chronic stress and its many effects on our nervous system, believing when we release old tension patterns from our bodies, we have an increased ability to integrate information from our environment, cope with the challenges of life more effectively, and can have a greater depth of experience with those around us.

Louise and Nicola first met in 2013 while studying Network Chiropractic in Perth and have studied together at seminars and conferences ever since. They work closely with clients to achieve the best possible outcomes and greatest change.

“The treatments themselves do not ‘cure’ the condition, they simply restore the body’s self-healing ability.”
