From a young age I have always had an interest in natural health care and the human body. When I was 15, I was fortunate to complete work experience in an Integrated Clinic and was lucky enough to spend some time with an inspirational Chiropractor.
Having completed my Masters degree in Chiropractic at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, UK, I began work in a multidisciplinary clinic in the South of England which confirmed to me the benefits of an Integrated approach.
In early 2014, I indulged my passion for culture and food by traveling throughout India, China and South-East Asia ending in Perth. Within a few months I was completely sold on the Australian lifestyle and have been working and enjoying the sunshine and outdoor lifestyle that the West coast has to offer ever since.
I find it extremely rewarding being in a position to help people achieve their health goals through chiropractic care. I have a particular interest in Women’s Health and Paediatrics and continue to pursue further professional development within these fields.

In today’s society I believe that massage is very beneficial and crucial, not just for the body but the mind as well.
After many years working in hospitality in my previous career, I was suffering with chronic lower back pain which started to impact on my daily life. I found that massage gave me fantastic results in relieving my pain. I was so impressed with the effectiveness of this treatment that I decided to make this my next career option so that I could help others to overcome their aches & pains, whether it be from sport, work, postural or life in general.
I studied at Central Institute of Technology and in 2012 successfully completed a 2 year full time course graduating with a Diploma of Remedial Massage. My ongoing studies have given me a lot of great opportunities and I am pleased to be working with a fun and professional group of health and well-being practitioners.

Megan consults 2 days a week at Bare Motion in Carine. Combining her deep understanding of the mechanisms underlying pain with evidence-based practice she strives to empower her patients and promote self-sufficiency, within a positive and active environment. Megan uses biomechanical digital video analysis to help identify underlying contributing factors such as faulty movement patterns, which enables accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Megan has been lecturing and teaching at the University of Notre Dame for the past 8 years. She has taught the Soft Tissue Injury Management, Upper Limb, Lower Limb and Lumbar Spine courses and she co-ordinated the Orthopaedics Course within the School of Physiotherapy for several years. Currently she is teaching the Cervical Spine course. Megan has also recently completed a Master of Philosophy degree through the University of Notre Dame. Her research explored particular mechanisms underlying pain. Her article entitled “Visually-induced analgesia in a deep tissue experimental pain model: a randomised cross-over experiment” was published in the European Journal of Pain.

Prior to this, Megan gained clinical experience in both hospital and private practice musculoskeletal settings in South Africa, England and in Perth. This culminated in her establishing and directing her private practice in the northern suburbs, until she commenced teaching at the University of Notre Dame in 2012, on a permanent basis. Megan places great emphasis on education with a view to assisting patients to manage and prevent their conditions as independently as possible.
