Meet The Team
Upon completing an Accounting Course after leaving school, I spent many years travelling and working overseas, mainly Europe. I came back to New Zealand in the year 2000 after my big O.E and settled back down in my home town of Tauranga in the Mighty Bay of Plenty where I met my fiance Al. We have 3 awesome children Troy, Aidan & Eva-Rose.
We have recently sold our 7 days a week business, and I have worked for Body Mechanix for over 10 years. My partner and I decided since it was a good fit that we would purchase The Practice.
I enjoy meeting new and existing clients, and seeing them come through the clinic and leaving very satisfied with the treatments they have received.
I enjoy walking, swimming, skiing, spending good quality time with the family outdoors and exploring the country.
Podiatrist Dip.Pod (NZ) BSc Hons (UK)
I have been practising for nearly 40 years and it is a pleasure to care for all ages and even up to three generations in a family!
Clinical practice has changed immensely after this time, but also the rates of patient to practitioner. There is more of a collaboration and teamwork approach which together gets the best outcomes.
In my spare time, I enjoy family time and my gardens.

Dr Jae McCormick
Chiropractor BSc (Chiro)
Hi, I’m Jae and I have been taking care of families in my community for the past 23 years. I love to see people thrive with chiropractic care and I am here to be an important part of your health team.
I take care of all members of the family, and my speciality and passion in practice are taking care of pregnant mums, babies and children. This began when I gave birth to my son while I was a chiropractic student and I followed it up with post-grad studies in chiropractic paediatrics.
In practice I use low-force techniques; the Activator technique and the Torque Release, which is a tonal technique. I also use soft tissue and cranial techniques with pregnant mamas and babies.
I have worked in family chiropractic practices in both New Zealand and Australia. I’m loving living back in the Bay of Plenty, where I grew up. My son and daughter are both young adults and I enjoy family time with them as often as we can.
When I’m not in the office I love to be on the water; boating or fishing. I also enjoy the beach, walking, riding my mountain bike, dancing, and… I’m a tiny house nut!

I love to travel and hope to do more of that in the future.
