Joining Mosman Chiropractic in 2000, Ashley has been an enthusiastic part of the team ever since.

Ashley particularly enjoys the diversity of clinical practice. One minute he may be treating an elderly patient, followed by an athlete in their 20’s, followed by a new born baby. He enjoys using a variety of techniques to suit the person's needs and has recently added dry needling to services he offers. Ashley is also a senior supervisor and examiner of final year chiropractic students at the Macquarie University Outpatients Clinic at Summer Hill. He is very passionate about the clinical development of our future chiropractors’ ensuring our new graduates are as well trained as possible.

Honnie profile

Honnie started seeing a chiropractor at 16 years old for headaches. The headaches resolved as well as all other aches and pains she didn’t know she had!

Honnie decided to be a chiropractor after studying her Medical Science degree when she realised chiropractic “made sense”. The brain and spinal cord control the whole body, so how can a body work at its optimum if the body’s nervous system is irritated?

She graduated from Sydney Uni with a Bachelor of Medical Science in 1995 and completed her Masters of Chiropractic in 1998 from Macquarie University. With over 25 years clinical experience, Honnie has been part of Mosman Chiropractic since 2013.

Honnie is passionate about chiropractic and the benefits to everyone’s health and wellbeing. She loves adjusting all ages, especially her younger and more mature patients. Her particular interest is in helping women during their pregnancy, to prepare for birth and assisting with newborn care (settling and breastfeeding).

Since having her 3 boys, Honnie values the advantage of a chiropractic adjustment even more. There is nothing like a quick adjustment to ease a cold, nip body aches and pains in the bud and to get a football player back on the field! 

In her off time, she loves being on the sideline watching the boys play football for Seaforth FC or can be found volunteering/in the water at her local surf club, Queenscliff.
