Paulette Walker: Ashgrove Chiropractor

Paulette Walker


Chiropractors use their hands and other instruments to align the spine and joints of the body, and to take pressure off the nervous system. This may involve clicking or popping of joints, known as manual adjustment. It can also include low force techniques, including massage, mobilisation and traction. Our chiropractor uses a combination of all of these procedures, the technique of choice depending on individual client conditions, needs and preferences.

Paulette graduated from Phillip Institute of Technology ( now RMIT ) at the end of 1991 and has been in full- time practice as a chiropractor ever since.

She has completed extensive post-graduate studies over the last 30years. Her particular area of expertise is Sacro-Occipital Technique ( S.O.T.). S.O.T. Is a gentle chiropractic approach addressing the musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial systems of the body. It lends itself well to all age groups, and combined with other adjustive procedures has been able to assist many of our clients regain the pain free, mobile lifestyle they desire.

Cara Woods: Skilled Chiropractor

Cara Woods

New Chiropractor

Hello! My name is Cara and I’m so excited to be joining the amazing team at Ashgrove Chiropractic. I fell in love with chiropractic at 12 years old, after a less-than-graceful landing at gymnastics resulted in my very first chiropractic appointment. My experience there inspired me so deeply that I knew by my second adjustment that I would one day become a chiropractor. Between my years as a chiropractic assistant and completing my Master of Clinical Chiropractic through CQUniversity, I now have over 20 years of experience in the Chiropractic world. My own health and injury journey have led me to focus on low-force techniques and I’m passionate about gentle hands-on care. Working with people from all walks of life is such a privilege - from our tiniest humans to our precious elders, I want you to feel comfortable, safe and cared for! I am truly looking forward to meeting you all and having the honour of taking care of you and your families.

Charles Kise: Body Therapist

Charles Kise

Body Therapist

"To free the body, mind and spirit...

To rediscover the magic of freedom...

To become free as a child: free of fear, hate, greed andpain... To fully live each moment by moment by moment..."

Fascinated with the healing potential of the human body, Charles started his early training as a Respiratory Therapy Technician in 1980 and has spent much of his life studying and practising the unification of mind, body, and spirit as a way of personal development.

Charles uses a hands on direct experience approach to help people process their pain, regain balance, and stay present to life’s changing conditions.

He graduated from the American Institute of Massage Therapy where he was trained in Sports Therapy, Remedial Stretching, Swedish massage, Lomi Lomi, Reflexology, and Polarity Energy work. He also completed the State of Hawaii Massage Therapy license program. He continued his studies in Sports Therapy Massage with Olympic sports physician Mik Hungerford and Russian clinical massage specialist Zjenia Kuroshova. As a skilled and intuitive body therapist with over 34 years of experience, he studied personally with ‘The dean of body workers’ William ‘Dub’ Leigh, founder of Zen Bodytherapy®. He has been trained and certified as a Zen Triggerpoint Anatomy®, Zen Bodytherapy®, and Advanced Zentherapy® I and II practitioner facilitating people of all ages and walks of life in structural and functional integration. Charles has been an assistant in numerous trainings over the years and is a certified teacher of Zen Triggerpoint Anatomy® through the International Zentherapy® Institute Inc.

In 2007, Charles moved family and practice to Australia and went back to school to receive his Australian Diploma for Remedial Massage.

Enthusiastic of experiencing the challenges of mind-body limitations, Charles was an accomplished triathlete and long distance runner as well as a practitioner of different martial arts. He began zazen (zen meditation) training at Chozen Ji International Zen Dojo at the recommendation of his teacher Dub Leigh in 1990. Charles became involved in firing ceramics in a wood kiln and became ever fascinated with reading energy and its effects on the finished piece. He went on to study energy through the practice of Qigong with Master Wong from Beijing and studied Reiki modules I and II. Charles participated in the Forum education process, Asiaworks, and the Pathway to Wholeness programs, which confirmed that the emotional-mental state of being directly influences the physical body.

Being a very hands-on kind of person, Charles has been practicing woodwork and wood carving since 1979. He likes to bring out the potential in everything and in everyone he works with. He believes that everyone has a great purpose. When the right conditions are created, we can release the natural form of the body with less pain and negativity, to become happier, and appreciate the gift of life itself.
