Dr. Barnes has had a stronger nutrition focus on her practice since 2005 when she sought extra training for food and herbal based nutrition healthcare. All chiropractors are trained in basic nutrition and often carry some basic supplements which is fantastic, but our goal is to go far beyond that. From a quick question to an indepth consultation, we can advise you how to care for your health naturally.

BioElectric Meridian Massage

  • 30 minutes $75

  • 45 minutes $105

  • 60 minutes $135

Unblock and cleanse the body’s meridians using bio-electric energy, alkaline creams and incredible essential oils. Bio-Electric Meridian Massage is brand new to Australia and is emerging worldwide! Experience the health benefits of Bio-Electric Meridian Massage!

Dr. Barnes has trained in China and Hong Kong to be able to bring this new technology to the Sunshine Coast. 

The easiest way to explain how this works is it uses electric pulses on acupuncture points, then “dredges” the meridians by the sweeping motion using the electric current. This helps unclog blocked areas of the body that often stop the body healing, as well as a great preventative healthcare opportunity.

 

Benefits include: 

  • Clearing the blockages of meridians

  • Promotes blood circulation

  • Activates nerve and muscle tissue

  • Regulates digestive system

  • Has an anti-inflammatory effect

  • Has an analgesic effect

  • Eliminates fatigue, improves mood

  • Purify and detoxify the body

Ultrasound

  • 10 minutes $25 

Increase your healing with therapeutic ultrasound. Ultrasound has been shown to cause increases in healing rates, improving blood flow, improved connective tissue modification with less scar tissue, relaxation of tissues. Ultrasound is mostly used in ligament, muscle and soft tissue injuries such as tendonitis, joint swelling and muscle spasm. The effect of ultrasound via an increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation. A greater power density (measured in watt/cm2) is often used in cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal.

 

How Does Ultrasound Work? 

Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel. A typical ultrasound treatment will take from 3-5 minutes. In cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal, this treatment time can be much longer. During the treatment the head of the ultrasound probe is kept in constant motion. If kept in constant motion, the patient should feel no discomfort at all. 

Some conditions treated with ultrasound include tendonitis (or tendinitis if you prefer), non-acute joint swelling and muscle spasm. 

The ultrasound waves are generated by a piezoelectric effect caused by the vibration of crystals within the head of the probe. The ultrasound waves that pass through the skin cause a vibration of the local soft tissues. This vibration or cavitation can cause a deep heating locally though usually no sensation of heat will be felt by the patient. In situations where a heating effect is not desirable, such as a fresh injury with acute inflammation, the ultrasound can be pulsed rather than continuously transmitted.

 

When Should Ultrasound be Avoided?

Contraindications of ultrasound include local malignancy, metal implants below the area being treated, local acute infection, vascular abnormalities, and directly on the abdomen of pregnant women. It is also contraindicated to apply ultrasound directly over active epiphyseal regions (growth plates) in children, over the spinal cord in the area of a laminectomy, or over the eyes, skull, or testes.

Like all medical equipment, when used by highly trained professionals, therapeutic ultrasound is very unlikely to cause any adverse effects. Please consult with Dr. Barnes if you have any questions. 

Foot Levelers custom-made orthotic inserts

  • Digital Infrared Foot Scan for arch imbalance - complimentary  

  • orthotic inserts $345-$375

Our custom-made orthotic inserts are 100% guaranteed to help relieve stress throughout the body and improve physical performance, or your money back! 

 

You can’t get better than custom fitted! And our patients notice the difference. From just foot pain to neck pain, gravity affects your whole body posture when your foundation (your feet!) is not optimal. As Dr. Barnes often comments: “Gravity always wins”. Having personally worn and recommended foot levelers inserts for 15 years, she will tell you how it made a world of difference in her neck pain from former collarbone breaks. Gravity works all the way up to your neck! The change was noted almost immediately- Day 2 she had minimal neck pain and has continued to recommend them ever since. Your arches are also the best shock absorber part of your body- so if you lose that, you end up with higher shock wave transfer hitting your joints and causing pain and wear & tear. Help your joints last longer by improving your shock absorption- especially since we mainly stand, work and exercise on hard surfaces these days.   

 

Ask the staff for a free foot scan analysis today- it only takes 5 minutes. Many health funds cover the need for orthotic inserts depending on your individual coverage. We can also help guide you on which style would be best for your needs. We work to keep them as affordable as possible, but at $345-$375 they are a choice health investment, made with very high quality materials.  Backed by a 1 year warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee -they should last you a long time. 

“After 15 years, I have never yet had to throw a pair out- however, I do have multiple pairs.” Dr. Barnes.

  • Individually crafted based on 3D scans to bolster the arches in your feet
