My introduction to Chiropractic came as a teenager, when I saw firsthand the huge impact that Chiropractic had on a family member. After a near death experience with meningococcal meningitis, he was experiencing terrible back pain. After just a few visits with his Chiropractor he was inspired to become a Chiropractor himself, and he recommended I get my spine checked. Unlike most people when they see a chiropractor for the first time, I was not suffering from any back pain or symptoms, so my family and I assumed all was fine. A thorough examination revealed areas of my spine were subluxated (out of their nice healthy position putting pressure on my nervous system), and so I began to get adjusted. The great thing about starting care at a young age was that I was able to correct my problems before they became more serious health concerns. I immediately knew it was an amazing profession that I wanted to be a part of, and I made the decision to be a Chiropractor.

I graduated from the prestigious New Zealand College of Chiropractic with the award for clinical excellence, and practiced on the Gold Coast in Australia where I had the privilege of taking care of many families and individuals helping them to restore their health, and then keep them functioning at their best.

In 2011 I moved from Australia to join my now husband Nigel, and we are fortunte to have a wonderful team of inspired staff working alongside us in Feilding and Levin. In 2015 we welcomed our beautiful daughter Eva into this world - it is such an amazing gift to be able to adjust her and keep her spine and nervous system functioning optimally from day one so that she can express abundant health.

Based in Feilding, I am passionate about educating the community and empowering them to make better health choices. I am excited by the opportunity to work with the surrounding communities to help them feel their best, and perform at their best through natural chiropractic care.

I grew up in the small town of Levin and attended Palmerston North Boys High School for 5 years graduating in 2000. I graduated from the prestigious New Zealand College of Chiropractic located in Auckland and moved back local.  City life is great, but take a look around here and it doesn't even come close to competing with this wonderful town, amazing people, fresh air, plenty of space, life is good! In 2014 I was lucky enough to marry the love of my life Jane who is also a Chiropractor.  In April 2015 Jane and I had our first child, Eva Kate and we have absolutely loved every moment.  Its fair to say that I am pretty smitten with her and I’m under no illusion that will be used against me in no time at all.  

I was originally inspired to be a healing practitioner by my first chiropractor in Levin, Dr Alan Dixon. I spent many of my younger years seeking a solution for my constant pains and was time and time again told they were 'growing pains'. At age 6 Dr Dixon told me something that I still pass on to my patients today. Paraphrasing slightly, "If the bodies potential to express communication to any part of it is compromised, that person will have less than 100% health. Chiropractic helps restore that communication without drugs, surgery, or medication.”  WOW, how amazing is that, sign me up.

I have chosen to dedicate my time and energy to the healing arts because we are faced with more and more people becoming more and more unwell. The health problems that were more prevalent in later years of life are creeping into the middle-aged years and even childhood.  The convenience lifestyle is having some serious impact on our communities.  I designed Quantum Chiropractic to help people be the change they wanted to see. Our centres offer more than one avenue to health and help provide the steps to get there. Health is a multifaceted concept and cannot be reached with only one avenue.

We are very fortunate to have an incredibly caring and dedicated associate in our Levin practice.  Dr Joyce Onland joined the team in 2014 and has been taking great care of the Horowhenua community.  Dr Onland brings with her a vast knowledge in radiography and such a caring nature that humbles me each time we interact.  The Horowhenua community is lucky to have her, as are we.  

Our centres remain true to their vision, becoming the epicenter for optimal health. At Quantum Chiropractic we are dedicated to offering you the finest chiropractic care to obtain an optimal spine and nerve system function. Our practices are committed to educating and inspiring you on the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices. We want to help you be the change you want to see.

Chiropractic allows me to do what I love, and with a practice filled with amazing patients I absolutely love what I do.

Hi, my name is Karen Hawkes, and welcome to our practice.

I started as a Chiropractic Assistant in 2003 and I am very passionate about my job. I loved being involved in Chiropractic and have seen so many amazing results throughout the years, even experiencing it my self.

After working here for a few months and seeing the benefits, I decided to bring my children in, although they didn't experience any back pain, one of my boys was constantly on antibiotics, due to ear infections, throat and eye infections. After a few visits I could see a change in him, so we kept up our regular adjustments and now it's been nine years free of antibiotics. WOW! He is a very active, healthy boy now, thanks to chiropractic.

I was born in Wanganui and grew up in a little town south of Wanganui called Turakina, where I was brought up on a sheep farm. I attended Turakina Primary School and then onto Wanganui Girls College. I married and worked in Wanganui for a few years before moving to Feilding in 2002 with my family. I am a mother of two fantastic boys, who keep me very busy.

I look forward to coming to work everyday and see all our old and new patients and being able to help people in our community.

Hi I am Rolex and part of the Quantum Chiropractic Team.

I have a huge responsibility looking after the premises, ("but don't tell anyone, I actually enjoy my job").

The Police Force has approached my owner about me becoming a Police Dog, ("sounds like hard work to me").

Anyway I am happy just hanging out at the Feilding practice.

I keep a pretty low profile at the practice, but if you do see me around be sure to say hello.
