Kris Stoker MChir.BSc.DRM. Chiropractor
Kris was born in Hornsby in 1976 and has grown up in the area. When he was about 7, his father took his brother, Shane, to see a Chiropractor/Osteopath for help with his eczema, which cleared up soon after.
At age 15, he injured his knee playing sport. During his rehab, he decided that this was the field of interest for him and, after looking further into it and remembering the effects it had on Shane, decided that Chiropractic was of particular interest.
Kris completed his Diploma of Remedial Massage at Nature Care College and worked as a massage therapist whilst completing his Chiropractic degree. He graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Chiropractic in 2000. After graduation he worked in the clinic of a lecturer who was completing his PhD in the effects of Chiropractic on headaches. He worked here for three years before taking six months off to travel Europe.
On return, he opened his own clinic, Hornsby Health Centre, with his brother, Shane, who is a Massage Therapist and Reiki Master. Since then, Adam Rayment- a Holistic Kinesiologist, Zahir Behdasht- an Acupuncturist, Jane Murphy- a Bowen Therapist, and Trevor Hosking- a Cranio-Sacral therapist have also joined the team.
Due to his massage background and continued osteopathic "mentoring", Kris' style involves more soft tissue work than a typical chiropractor. This is something many clients have told him that separates him from others. He originally thought he would be involved in a sporting club but now finds more rewards from helping "normal" people.
Kris is available: Monday - Friday, 9am - 6:30pm and Saturday mornings by appointment.
