Dr Adrian Stocco: Chiropractor

Adrian learned first-hand the benefits of chiropractic care when he was just 12 years of age and was inspired to become a chiropractor so he could have that same positive impact on others.

Adrian attended the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. He is now an intern mentor there to students and the past President of the Alumni Association. Since graduating, he has completed seminar training in Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC®), Endo Nasal adjusting, Pediatrics and Sacro Occipital Technique® (SOT®), which allows him to adjust the spine and cranial system. He is a member of the New Zealand Chiropractors’ Association.

Takako: Chiropractic Assistant

Takako enjoys watching our practice members’ health improve. She has a strong interest in a natural approach to health and loves learning and discovering what regular chiropractic care does for the human body.

She believes that it’s important to listen to your body carefully to pick up any discomfort or pain.

In her free time, Takako and her husband turn into “Minimalist Ultralight Trampers” and explore nature. If you know any good places for tramping, she’d love to hear about them! Usually, Takako is roaming around Devonport. If you see her, say “Hi!” She would be very happy to see our practice members in the village.

Come and see us to know more about chiropractic and nurture your body.
