Dr Shira Michaeli, Chiropractor

Originally from South Africa, a keen sportswoman representing her province in swimming, Dr Shira’s interest in healthcare began while exposed to her father’s physiotherapy practice. It was during this time that she learned the importance that every part of the body has in maintaining optimal function.

Dr Shira volunteered in the Las Escobas Rainforest on the Caribbean coast of Guatemala helping transform the lives of the local community. While there, she also learned to speak Spanish. It was in Guatemala that she was introduced to Chiropractic and its philosophies and instantly knew she wanted to be a Chiropractor.

She enrolled in the Chiropractic program at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa and after the first year transferred to the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in Auckland, regarded worldwide as a top chiropractic institution. Here, she was fortunate to be selected to represent New Zealand at 5 annual international congresses in Brazil, Australia, South Africa, Spain and America.

During her final year of studies, Dr Shira earned the Meritorious Service Student of the Year Award and was also nominated for the New Zealand Private Education Providers Student of the Year Award. Dr Shira was elected to the international Board of Directors for the World Congreess of Chiropractic Students and now serves on the council for the New Zealand Chiropractors’ Association. She has also been an assitant lecturer in technique at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic.

Since graduating, Dr Shira has practiced in Auckland and is thrilled to now be based on the North Shore where she grew up. Dr Shira is skilled in a wide range of Chiropractic adjusting approaches and uses techniques like Sacral Occiptal Technique (SOT), Torque Release Technique (TRT), Biogeometric Integration (BGI), Activator, Thompson and Diversified. She has also completed specialised pediatric studies which enable her to effectively care for babies, children and pregnant women.

Dr Shira is currently studying towards a Masters degree in Health Science at AUT, with a focus on nutrition. She is a keen foodie and in constantly creating new, healthy and tasty creations which she shares with her practice. Stay tuned for her specialised cook book designed specifically to help mums introduce solid foods to their babies at correct times and then continue feeding their family nourishing, delicious and inspired meals to take them right the way through their development.
