Dr Canh Ly


Canh grew up in a small Canadian town, he journeyed to Sydney for his Bachelors and Masters in Chiropractic Science at Macquarie University, and then settled in rural Mount Gambier. His chiropractic philosophy centres on the notion that movement is medicine, and he tailors treatments to patient’s individual needs. His clinical interests lie in injury prevention, and he assists clients with a broad range of concerns, ranging from pain associated with desk work to acute sports-related injuries.


Techniques Canh utilizes include: 

- Soft tissue techniques 

- Dry needling

- Stretching and rehabilitation advice

- Joint mobilisation and manual adjustments
- Activator


Canh thinks that by providing proper education, patients gain insights into the root causes of their issues, empowering them to prevent recurrences and limit future injury risks.


Outside of work, he enjoys free diving, training at the gym, boxing, and supporting the Vancouver Canucks in ice hockey.


Dr Naomi Fleming


Naomi, a lifelong Portland resident, has devoted herself to delivering chiropractic care to the local community since 1992.

She started her journey at Henty Chiropractic Centre, working alongside her mother, Helen McKenzie, who was also a chiropractor. Chiropractic seems to run in the family, as Naomi's daughter, Eloise, is now also practicing as a chiropractor on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Naomi's practice centres around muscle testing techniques, particularly applied kinesiology, enabling her to identify areas of weakness accurately. She combines manual adjusting, activator methods, blocks, and soft tissue therapy to provide comprehensive and effective treatment.

Dr Nicola Symons


Nicola has returned to the South West after working in Melbourne over the last three years. She enjoys treating all ages including newborns, children and adults. With a strong focus on family health, Nicola provides care during pregnancy, breastfeeding and early stages of parenting to both baby and mum. 


Being a keen runner, she enjoys treating general aches and pains, running and sports injuries, postural and mobility restrictions as well as headaches, neck and jaw pain. 


Nicola is a certified breastfeeding specialist and accredited Possums Mum and Infant care provider.


On weekends Nicola loves spending time with family, creating artworks,  picking fruit at her family farm and training for the next 10km race.
