Dr Kristen Sheppard
Born in South Africa, Kristen immigrated to beautiful, sunny Perth in 2006. She grew up in the Como area, going to school at Penrhos College and being apart of the local Swimming Club, Southside Penrhos Wesley. Coming from an elite sports background in Swimming, Kristen has always been fascinated by the potential of the human body. Kristen grew up under Chiropractic care, to which she attributes a large amount of her success and performance in the pool. Kristen went on to graduate from Murdoch University, completing the Chiropractic double degree with Distinction..
Health for Kristen is not merely the absence of symptoms, but rather being able to do the things you
want to do in life, with your body working the best it possibly can. She has a special interest in
Woman’s Health, Paediatric and Pregnancy care, having achieved Webster Certification through the
International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Kristen is experienced in Diversified manual
adjusting techniques, Activator and Thompson/Drop Piece. Alongside adjusting, Kristen takes a
holistic approach to health and loves to incorporate home exercise and nutritional advice so you can
get the most out of your care.
Outside the practice Kristen loves being outdoors and embracing an active lifestyle. You’ll find her
anywhere near water, either at the local swimming pool, having recently come 2 nd in the Rottnest
Channel Swim as a duo with her brother (who is also studying to become a Chiropractor); or walking
her dog Phoenix on the South Perth foreshore.
She loves eating delicious, nutritious food and trying
new, local cafes and restaurants with her partner Beau (also a Chiropractor). Kristen is excited to
now be practicing in her local community and looks forward to having the opportunity to take care
of you and your family and supporting you in achieving your health and life goals.
