Dr Melissa McGuire


Dr Melissa McGuire graduated from Macquarie University in 2007 and joined an amazing practice in Toowoomba where she saw many families and children thrive. She relocated to the Gold Coast, opening Healthy Bodies Chiropractic in 2010.

The arrival of her own children brought about a new understanding of the complex nature of kids health. This reaffirmed her desire to provide individualised and holistic health care for the whole family.

In 2017, Mel was diagnosed with a brain tumour. A long and complex surgery resulted in many sensory functions being significantly affected. Mel was left with double vision, balance issues, vertigo, deafness, tinnitus, facial tingling and numbness, difficulties chewing, swallowing and speaking, cognitive impairments and extreme fatigue. The specialists were hopeful she may recover some function in the following 12 months, but advised her to expect that this may be permanent.

By putting into practice the very same advice she gives her patients, receiving chiropractic care, nutritional and emotional support and returning to exercise, she was able to overcome almost all of these conditions. She returned to practice less than 6 months after surgery. 4 years on, she is enjoying a happy healthy life and enjoys bringing this unique experience into her practice to help others.

Dr Rachael Davie


Rachael has experienced the wonderful benefits of chiropractic since she was 12 years old. From that moment a seed was sown and becoming a chiropractor was something she aspired to be. Her interest in chiropractic deepened when her second child received amazing results with gentle chiropractic care; and in turn all five of her children have received regular care since a very young age.

Rachael completed her 5-year degree, a Bachelor of Health Science and Bachelor of Chiropractic at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT). Rachael believes in a gentle approach to treatment that includes soft tissue, activator, cranial work and manual adjusting in conjunction with Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), and Applied Kinesiology (AK). She has also expanded her studies and is a completing a two-year Diplomate in Chiropractic Paediatric Neuro-development. She is a member of the Australian Chiropractic Association (ACA) and College of Chiropractic Paediatrics (CCP).

Rachael’s experience as a mother of five (two teens, a tween, a preppy and a new born) sparked further connection and interest in neuro-development. She enjoys working with people of all ages from babies, toddlers, school-aged children, through to pregnant women, parents, and the elderly.

Rachael believes that in the busyness of life our bodies communicate and show us where we are “at” and why there may be challenges. We may not be able to change our everyday stressors – but we can change how our bodies react and cope in stressful times.
