Dr Rebecca Hewitt
Having initially completed a degree in Human Movement (specifically Exercise Physiology) Rebecca knew that her studies were not complete. Living in Melbourne and selling pharmaceuticals was not “ticking all the boxes”. Rebecca’s desire to help people and truly make a difference was yet to be satisfied.
As a child any physical ailments were seen to by Rebecca’s uncle who was trained as a manipulative therapist. With this thought in mind, Rebecca then spent some time visiting various chiropractors in Melbourne and it was then that she knew that this was the profession she must pursue.
In addition to being competent in diversified manual adjusting, Rebecca has also completed Thompson, Activator, SOT and Webster technique’s to further compliment her skill set. She shares a passion for paediatrics and family care completing her Certificate in paediatrics under the instruction of Dr Braden Keil. With Rebecca’s background in exercise physiology and personal training she excels at sports rehab and exercise management.
Rebecca has been principle chiropractor at Floreat Health Works early in her career and then switched to locumming to fit in with having a family. Rebecca’s vast experience in country locations such as Alice Springs, Kalgoorlie and Geraldton has widened her skill set and allowed her to adapt to adjusting patients of all sizes and walks of life.
Rebecca prides herself in keeping up to date with research and the growing body of evidence that supports where chiropractic fits into people’s health and wellness regime. As a mother of two young girls Siena and Emilia, Rebecca knows how tricky it can be balancing life, work and play. A healthy diet of whole foods and reducing sugar and preservatives is the key along with encouraging outdoor play and exercise for the whole family. “One of the greatest challenges for most parents these days is reducing screen time which is a further challenge in maintaining healthy postures and nervous systems of our precious families”.
Rebecca has been part of the South Perth / Como community since 1995 and is very excited to be practicing in an area she is so passionate about.
