Dr Adrian’s Bio (Chiro.)
Dr Adrian Osypiv was born and raised in the suburbs of Melbourne and completed his chiropractic double degree at RMIT University in 1996. It wasn’t long after graduation that he headed north to chase the warmer weather of coastal Queensland, which is where he’s been based since then. Not long after moving he started a locally renowned and popular chiropractic clinic in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. After eventually selling the clinic to do some extended travel overseas, Dr Adrian has worked as an associate and locum around various practices within Australia. His intentional focus was and still is to help entire families reach their full health potential through the use of natural chiropractic care. That meant caring for newborns through to grandparents. He is very enthusiastic about being an integral part of, and witness to, the long ranging benefits experienced by those who choose regular chiropractic care throughout their life. Dr Adrian holds the passionate and logical belief that if most of us visit a dentist simply because we have teeth, then it’s even more vital we are checked by a chiropractor regularly soon after birth given that our spine houses our master control systems. Early detection of interference and conscious management simply makes sense. In his spare time Dr. Adrian enjoys being outdoors, exercising, philosophical discussions, tennis and jogging.
Dr John Swatland B.App.Sc.(Chiro.)
Dr John Swatland graduated from what is now RMIT University in Melbourne in 1985. From there he ran his own clinic in Glenelg, South Australia. He then travelled Europe for three months, practiced as a locum around England before settling in for three years in Guildford, Surrey.
Following six hears of locum work in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and three states of Australia he settled into long term family raising and practice in south east Queensland.
With a keen curiosity and broad experience in a wide variety of health-related fields and practices he runs a series of Advanced Healing Workshops where, depending on the level of need of the group, he can introduce, develop and explore tips and principles to enhance the well-being of all those in attendance.
Like many practitioners in the healing field I began my healing journey after an accident which left me with recurrent and severe migraines. Chiropractic was successful in removing the subluxation in my neck and my body was able to return to normal function.
Since then I have explored all kinds of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing, using myself as a guinea pig so I could fully experience the nature of the modality and the effects.
I enjoy sharing my experiences from practicing meditation, core exercises and general exercise and nutrition to the specific skills of maintaining optimal posture, a healthy emotional state and proper breathing.
In my workshops I also see myself as a translator (of the science of health,) a communicator of healing concepts and practices as well as a motivator and encourager of my attendees.
Chiropractic adjustments, for me, have always been the most helpful, effective and efficient physical therapy to stay well from the inside out and, along with the philosophy of always looking to correct the cause rather than treat the symptom, has laid a solid and unshakable foundation for all additional health and healing practices.
Please call reception or book at the front desk for Dr John’s workshops. Please also check our Calendar of Workshops in this website for topics that are colour coded to match their content with one of the Four Pillars of Health.
Dr Lawson Heath B.App.Sc.(Chiro.)
Dr Lawson Heath graduated from what is now RMIT University in Melbourne in 1985. From there he worked in Adelaide, South Australia and in Belfast, Northern Ireland in the UK.
He bought the LHCC practice in Shailer Park, South East Queensland around 1995 and was joined by Dr. Swatland a few years later.
After 28 years of practice and many thousands of patient visits, I still continue to see miracles in patient’s health that amazes me every day. This keeps me motivated, passionate and enthusiastic to help as many people back to their best health with natural chiropractic.
My dream is to have every person in our community checked for vertebral subluxation and educated about how our amazing body works. I want everyone to understand the vital relationship of our spine to our nervous system and then to our health.
Only then can people be informed and confident enough to take responsibility of their own health and lives.
Dr Heath takes the Exercise Class workshop where we teach our patients (not open to the general public) the best stretching exercises for the spine and introduce them to the finer points and principles of exercise.
This workshop is a must for all of our patients and serves as a foundation for all other exercise workshops.
Dr Heath now also takes the occasional Better Results Faster workshop when Dr Swatland is away.
