Meet your Chiropractor

Dr Michael Rees DC

Born and raised in Namibia with a yoga teacher mother and a pharmacist father, I gained a well-balanced approach to health at an early age, being exposed to both the sickness and wellness paradigms. My high school years were spent in Cape Town, and the school I attended was the first rugby playing school in South Africa. Even today, that school often serves as a training venue for touring Australian teams.

That said, rugby was a big deal in my younger years, and at about 15 years of age, I was introduced to Chiropractic after injuring my neck in a rugby scrum. The Chiropractor whose practice I attended was a fit, charismatic man who lived the chiropractic wellness philosophy. This experience very much influenced my life, and it was at that time that I started formulating the idea of becoming a Chiropractor.

After high school, I spent two years in the army, which saw me spending time in the bush as a lieutenant in an anti-aircraft battery. In 1989 I was lucky enough to be included in the intake for the first Chiropractic University in South Africa. It was there that I met my beautiful wife Jeanine. In 1993, Jeanine and I left for California to complete a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Life West Chiropractic College. I’m proud to say, we both graduated Cum Laude.

Jeanine and I then returned to Cape Town and opened separate private practices where we practiced for 6 years before immigrating to Sydney. After 7 years in Sydney and with two young, very active children, we were looking for a healthy/outdoor lifestyle and settled on the Gold Coast. The sport, beaches, boating and camping have been great for the family.
