My name is Dr Alice Mitchell-Taverner I have a Network Spinal Analysis (NSA / Network Chiropractic) and Applied Kinesiology (AK) practice in the Byron Bay area. I hope you enjoy my blog posts as I share some of my insights and knowledge of the human body and the human being.
I’m a passionate educator, and love to help people take an active role in their care so this web site is full of information.
I believe that when we start having Network Chiropractic, or when we change our diet or lifestyle or add a supplement to our diet, we need to understand why we are doing it. So I invite you to use this website to become informed about Network Care, Applied Kinesiology, health, vitamins, minerals and diet. I have also included easy to understand explanations of the common ailments that I regularly see.
I took the first Network seminars that Donald Epstein taught in Australia nearly 20 years ago. I was only in my second year of chiropractic school at the time. The philosophy of chiropractic is that the body is intelligent and Network revealed that to me like no regular chiropractic adjustment ever could.
At that time I was disenchanted with chiropractic because I knew that there was a power/intelligence within us all that was smarter that the chiropractors trying to give alignments! I wanted so dearly to become a great ally of this amazing, self-correcting, unwinding power that came from within. I fell in love with this innate intelligence and as a Network chiropractor, when I graduated, I have loved sharing the self empowering experience of this with my clients.
Over these last 20 years I have given tens of thousands of sessions and witnessed more miracles than I can remember. It has been a great privilege to take care of many many families.
Now I have a family of my own and when my daughter began school she was diagnosed with a learning disorder. As a result I began thousands of hours of study into nutrition, neurology, biochemistry and kinesiology am now also an Applied Kinesiologist. I’m happy to say that my daughter has overcome her learning challenges and now I see lots of kids with autism spectrum disorders, and behavioural and learning challenges.
As a chiropractor, I am fully qualified and registered still have a passion for gentle musculoskeletal work and discovering the underlying cause of people’s symptoms.
I am certified (level 3) in Network Spinal Analysis which gently helps people recover from stress. I am therefore passionate about adrenal health and the HPA Axis. I am also certified in Applied Kinesiology; a body of knowledge reserved only for health professionals with a science degree in anatomy and physiology.
I prefer to work in a gentle way, encouraging the body to establish alignment and optimum function rather than forcing change.
I was an elite athlete for many years and I am a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, so when it comes to structure, function and alignment, I am a valuable resource.
I am a mother of three fantastic children. Every day I see people of all ages, with a huge range of symptoms and health challenges. I am forever studying and doing research, so I have a lot to share. I love to assist people to recover from chronic illness, and be the the long term healthcare provider for families, always there to support you and your family.
With me, you are in good hands.
