Our mission is to provide exceptional, family orientated, vitalistic chiropractic care, changing the way that we view health.
Our philosophy here at Boost is vitalistic; We know your body is fully equipped to function in great health for a lifetime!
Your body has certain requirements to be healthy. Meeting these requirements, your body will always work towards expressing itself fully in great health. Enter Chiropractic. Chiropractic is a strategy that works with the vital communication system of the body. We recognise that if your brain is communicating optimally through the power lines that are your nerves your body should return to good function, resulting in ease within the normal balance and processes of your body, often timely healing and the return of health follows.
Simply put, your body works better without nerve interference in the spine called Subluxations.
Meet the Team
Becoming a new practice member at Boost can sometimes be an exciting and scary time for many people. Our warm staff will invite you inside, get you a glass of water and introduce you to our practice.
The team is led by Dr Tom Vaughan; his Chiropractic interest lays in family practice with a special love for sports performance. Tom believes that your body’s natural state should be fantastic health and it his mission to share this vitalistic philosophy of health with the local community.
Through a high level of Chiropractic care Tom’s job is to make sure your central nervous system (master controlling system) is functioning as best as possible. His belief is that feeling good should be a side effect of a healthy well-functioning body.
Outside of running Boost Chiropractic Tom loves family time with his children, fishing, diving, gym, following the rugby, getting involved in the community and also teaches Chiropractic students at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic’s Chiropractic Center each week as an intern mentor.
Dr Chanelle Vaughan is the pregnancy and pediatric expert at Boost, however she has practice members under care from all walks of life. Her passion lies in supporting mothers from pre-conception through pregnancy and beyond and helping children grow and develop at their very best. Chanelle has checked babies from just hours old and is dedicated to ensuring the best care for these important little people and those that look after them, a passion that only strengthened with the birth of her own children.
Prior to working full time at Boost Chanelle taught multiple classes, including pediatrics, at the world renowned New Zealand College of Chiropractic in Auckland for 6 years. After having 3 children of her own she has now given up the daily commute and can be found in practice 4 days a week. In her downtime she enjoys spending time with her children, partner and animals in and around the water and local beaches, reading and sneaking in the odd nap when she can!
Dr Britt Withers is the newest member of the Boost team having recently graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. She has a passion for serving the local community, as she was raised in Wellsford and completed her college years at Mahurangi. Britt enjoys supporting her patients in their health pursuits through gentle and effective care.
When not in the office, Britt can be found spending time with her loved ones and animals, reading, playing a fierce game of cards, or enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches New Zealand has to offer.
I left New Zealand in 1987 with my husband and two children, one who was disabled. Keith and I ran our own business on the Sunshine Coast in QLD for 30 years before we recently returned to New Zealand. My daughter first started Chiropractic Care after a chance meeting with a Chiropractor screening at a local shopping center.
We noticed an immediate difference in her so my son started a fortnight later. Another month on and I started care, followed shortly by my husband – YES my whole family was hooked on Chiropractic Care. That was 20 years ago and in that time Chiropractic Care has helped us enormously despite some big challenges on the way, including a kidney transplant for our disabled son.
