Ben is a great chiro. I came to Bathurst from Sydney just over a year ago & when I first got here I was looking for someone to get adjustments. I was only used to a chiro who would get you in & out as quickly as possible not someone who actually did an assessment on you & wanted to listen to you. I can't recommend Ben & the team highly enough. They do make you feel like your part of the family when you first walk in as they actually remember your name. If your looking for someone to not just give you an adjustment but to care about you, look no further than ben
02:35 05 Jan 24
Dr Ben and Dr Talissa are simply the best Chiro Bathurst has to offer. They are holistic chiropractors which was a very different experience from all other chiropractors I have visited before. Dr Ben took the time to actually properly diagnose my chronic migraines. After a number of treatments and exercises I was given to correct my underlying issues, I am down from DAILY migraines to only now having 1 minor headache in the past 30 days. I wish I came earlier.

Bathurst Chiropractic is a warm and caring place everyone is very friendly there! I would highly recommend this service to anyone who is strugging with pain management and balance issues caused by degenerative osteoarthritis!I have never been to a chiropractor before or a Kinesiologist, so I was very nervous. The first appointment and adjustment with Talissa, was amazing she is so calming and reassuring and all my nerves immediately eased. I was shocked at how out of balance I was. The x-rays were surprising, too. I had 3 months of extensive work on my vagus nerve system 3 times a week alignment visits, reduced to twice a week. I have been 4 weeks post leaving after my balance dramatically reduced to within normal range. I continue to stay focused on listening to my body's needs through medition throughout my vagus nerve system. Thank you Talissa, you have changed my life and I greatly appreciate all you have helped me with and thank youtoall the staff who make every day warm and inviting.

What exactly is salutogenesis?

Salutogenesis is an approach that focuses on the factors promoting health and well-being rather than just treating illness. It explores the factors that support a person’s ability to stay healthy and thrive. In our holistic chiropractic care, we apply salutogenesis by considering physical, mental & emotional factors that influence your health.

Salutogenesis differs from traditional chiropractic, which often focuses on addressing illness or symptoms only. Our approach is proactive, emphasising the factors that support your overall well-being. We believe that by enhancing your body’s innate ability to heal and adapt, we can help you achieve better health outcomes.

How does salutogenesis benefit patients seeking a chiropractor?

Salutogenesis offers several benefits to our patients. By focusing on holistic well-being, it allows us to address the root causes of health concerns, not just the symptoms. This approach leads to more comprehensive and long-lasting results. We’ve found that patients who embrace the principles of salutogenesis often experience improved vitality, mental clarity, better sleep, enhanced stress management & an overall sense of well-being.

Is salutogenesis supported by scientific research?

Yes, salutogenesis is supported by scientific research emphasising the importance of a holistic approach to health. Numerous studies have explored the connection between holistic well-being and improved health outcomes. For example, a study published in NCBI, the worlds leading scientific study database, found that addressing various aspects of well-being, including lifestyle factors and stress management via salutogenesis, has a positive impact on overall health.

How is kinesiology used by your chiropractor's?

In our holistic chiropractic care, kinesiology is used to assess the functioning of a patient’s muscles and the body’s overall response to stress and other factors. By examining muscle strength, coordination & balance, chiropractors can gain insights into the patient’s neuromuscular system.

Kinesiology helps us identify any muscle imbalances, weaknesses or restrictions that might be contributing to pain, discomfort or other health issues. This information guides our treatment approach, allowing us to provide targeted adjustments and therapies to address these issues and promote optimal function.


Kinesiology is applied in various ways within our holistic chiropractic model:

  1. Muscle Testing: Chiropractors often use muscle testing to assess the strength and functionality of specific muscles. This can help pinpoint areas of concern and identify areas that may need adjustment or therapy.
  2. Functional Movement Analysis: Kinesiology also involves analysing a patient’s movement patterns. By observing how a person moves, chiropractors can identify irregularities or limitations that may contribute to pain or discomfort.
  3. Stress Response Evaluation: Kinesiology can be used to assess how the body responds to stressors. This can include evaluating the body’s reaction to physical, emotional, or environmental stressors and identifying areas where stress may be affecting overall health.

What's the difference between kinesiology and salutogenesis in chiropractic care?

Kinesiology and salutogenesis are both essential aspects of our holistic chiropractic approach, but they serve different purposes.

Kinesiology is a diagnostic tool we use to assess muscle function and overall body balance. It helps us identify areas of muscle weakness or imbalance, which can be indicative of underlying issues. Through gentle muscle testing, we can pinpoint specific areas of concern and determine the best course of treatment. Kinesiology assists us in understanding how your body is functioning on a muscular level.

Salutogenesis, on the other hand, is a broader concept related to the body’s ability to maintain and restore health. It focuses on the factors that promote well-being and resilience, helping your body adapt to various stressors. Salutogenesis is about addressing the root causes of health concerns, emphasising a proactive approach to wellness rather than simply managing symptoms. It considers physical, chemical & emotional factors to create a holistic picture of your health.
