Our Geelong West chiropractic process

Chiropractic in a nutshell

Chiropractic is the SCIENCE of optimising communication between the brain and the rest of the body. This is achieved through the ART of restoring balance to the spine – the ADJUSTMENT. At The IN8 Life, our Geelong West chiropractic services will restore that balance.

Chiropractic is built on the PHILOSOPHY that there is an intelligence inside of us that controls and coordinates every function of the living body, and how it interacts with its environment. This inborn, INNATE INTELLIGENCE sends and receives messages between the brain, the body and its environment along delicate nerves, protected by our spine.

When the spine isn’t moving properly, known as SUBLUXATION, The IN8 Life’s Geelong West chiropractors are here to help. Subluxation occurs when the messages don’t flow as they should, decreasing the body’s capacity to express the best version of itself.

It is easy to see why somebody might think a chiropractor is simply a back doctor – in reality, the essence of what we do at our Geelong West chiropractic clinic is to help unleash the true power of your innate intelligence and bring out the best version of YOU! That could mean freeing you of debilitating back pain, improving your quality of life and mental health.

What is a subluxation?

Simply put, a subluxation is like a dimmer switch to the energy of your nervous system. Subluxations are misalignments or poorly moving spinal vertebra and discs or cranial bones, which put pressure on or change the normal healthy function of the delicate nerves of your nervous system. This can cause back pain, neck pain, muscular issues, headaches and other physical issues.

A healthy nervous system is able to heal, adapt, regenerate, use appropriate survival mechanisms and create new life. A subluxation may affect any or all of these functions.

What to expect when you see a Geelong West chiropractor at The IN8 Life?

At The IN8 Life, our chiropractors want to know who you are, where you have come from in life, where you are going AND what will it take to get you there.

Here are typical types of visits you can expect at The IN8 Life’s Geelong West chiropractic clinic…

Introductory workshop – ‘The Real Health Revolution’

Before we even get you on a table we want to make sure that you understand exactly what it is that our chiropractors do, and more importantly what we don’t do. Honesty is important to us and we want you to be certain you are choosing exactly what we are offering. There are many different ideas of what our chiropractic services might be, so in this workshop we will explain exactly what we do, what chiropractic is and the investment and the outcomes you can expect for your health.

Our Geelong West chiropractors have put together a fun and insightful workshop so that we can be completely transparent with you about what happens at The IN8 Life, before you join our community. There is no cost for The Real Health Revolution workshop and no obligation to continue if you don’t think we are a fit for you. But, just quietly, we are pretty confident you will love it.


Total health evaluation (first appointment)

Using a combination of the latest scientific assessment methods, plus a detailed analysis of your past and current health status, we develop a clear picture of where you are. It is important for us to have a baseline of your current health and wellness so that we have a reference point as we begin to see improvement. Our Geelong West chiropractors will help you consider your health goals, and create an honest and realistic time frame and expectations of accomplishing those goals. If we can help you with chiropractic, we will tell you. You will then receive your first chiropractic adjustment.
Total time approx: 45 minutes

Health strategy report (second appointment)

Ideally within 24-48 hours of your first appointment we schedule you for your second visit. During this time your chiropractor will re-evaluate some of the measures from your first appointment to see how your first chiropractic adjustment affected your health. Now we work together to create an action plan to help you achieve your goals and present to you our honest recommendations. Your chiropractor will give you a detailed report of your Total Health Evaluation and recommendations for a program of care unique to you. At The IN8 Life, our Geelong West chiropractors believe you are the person solely responsible for your health. So, at this point it is your choice how to move forward to becoming that AWESOME YOU!
Total time approx: 45 minutes

Regular adjustment (typical appointment)

An adjustment is the name for the hands-on part of our Geelong West chiropractic care. The purpose of the adjustment is to optimise the communication between your brain and your body (don’t worry if you don’t yet understand this, it will all be explained in detail during the introductory workshop). Depending on the outcome of your Health Strategy Report, you may need to have a number of adjustments weekly during the first phase of your care.

At The IN8 Life, we know that your time is valuable and that is why we offer comprehensive yet time-effective chiropractic appointments. Our clients appreciate this not only in the beginning, but also years down the track.
Total time approx: 15 mins

Health snapshot

From time to time throughout your time visiting our Geelong West chiropractor services, we will revisit all of the tests from your Total Health Evaluation to ensure we are moving in the right direction. We want you to understand why we are doing what we are doing, have confidence in our methods and see brilliant results.
Total time approx: 30mins
