Minty Jackson B.App.Sc(Chiro) Grad.Dip.Animal(Chiro)
I finished my study at the end of 1984 and stayed in Melbourne (where I had studied) until the early 90’s running a practice in East Doncaster with my husband Geoff. We had our first two daughters during this time Emily and Alice and Harriet a few years later in Sydney.
In 1992 we moved to Sydney to be closer to Family and started a practice in Mosman which we ran successfully for a number of years and then opened another in Forestville which was walking distance to our home. As time went on and our three daughters grew up we realized living near the city was not for us... Alice and Harriet were both keen horse riders and the idea of sitting in traffic to travel anywhere was not appealing.We practiced healthy living and were keen to carry this out completely growing our own veggies etc.
Geoff had always tried to encourage me to see the light and move north to Queensland ( where his family were)but I always resisted as it seemed too ”relaxed" compared to Sydney and Melbourne.....We went to my nieces wedding in 2003 and stayed at Southbank and that was what made me change my mind. Brisbane was catching up with everything but not the number of people . We put our house on the market and had moved to ten acres at Mount Samson by the end of the year!!
As most people know my special interest is my love of animals and so while in Sydney I started my post graduate studies in Animal Chiropractic at RMIT in Melbourne which I completed 2 years later.
This I only do part time as I still really enjoy treating everyone of the human variety too from babies to the elderly . Not a day goes by without seeing a positive change in someone which can have such a big impact on their life....this has kept me as enthusiastic about the benefits of Chiropractic as I was when I first graduated. I have continued to work since I graduated in 1985 and have managed to combine this with plenty of time with our family
Our practice is Family based and we accommodate every age !!
