Meet our Chiropractic Kinesiologists

All of our wonderful practitioners below are highly skilled chiropractors who use a range of modalities in each of their sessions to support the body holistically.

These include a range of chiropractic techniques, applied kinesiology, N.E.T (Neuro Emotional Technique), Cranial Release Techniques, Bach flower remedies, nutritional supplements, diet recommendations and food intolerance/toxin testing.

They all have a great understanding of what the body needs to achieve balance, and are committed to continued growth and learning.

Dr Jolanta Williams (Founder)

BChiro., I.C.A.K.A., M.N.Z.C.A.

With a rough and fast introduction to this world, Jolanta was a colicky baby, progressing into burst eardrums and night terrors. She then became a child with headaches, abdominal cramps, low back pain, recurrent illnesses ... all problems a young child shouldn't have to experience. She spent her first 9 years in and out of medical specialist offices, who provided no answers or solutions to her ailments.

At 9 years old, her mum took her to see her local chiropractor who specialized in applied kinesiology, and she knew by the time she left that office that chiropractic was going to be her future.

Jolanta graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2005 and has not stopped learning since. She has since become certified in applied kinesiology and also completed seminars in neuro emotive technique (NET), nutrition, Bach flower remedies and various structural chiropractic techniques including cranial release techniques and Retained Primitive Reflexes.

Jolanta lives the lessons she teaches and is always her own first guinea pig to prove that something really works! She believes that life is about balance. A balance of stress, fun, relaxation and love. A balance of body, mind, spirit and nutrition. Our job at The Healing Room is to direct the body in removing any interference to this balance.

Love & Empowerment

"My purpose at The Healing Room is to create a space where people can come to feel totally accepted and cherished. Where their worries and anxieties can be expressed and heard without judgement, and responded to with total heart and empathy. My desire is to empower people, especially women, to not only trust their bodies, but listen to them and begin to understand its language. I intend to disentangle the complexities of their health puzzle and lay it out simply for them to comprehend and invest in - with their whole being." ~ Dr Jolanta

Dr Kristy Watton

BChiro., M.N.Z.C.A., Nutrition

Dr Kristy Watton, a graduate of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, developed a love for chiropractic during her teenage years following a back injury whilst playing squash.

She has a huge passion for children and family chiropractic and believes everyone can benefit from gentle, specific chiropractic care.

Her values sit heavily with family and friends, and much of her time outside of The Healing room is spent cherishing this time.

Having grown up in Whangamata, her passions lie near the beach and being outdoors, which has made her the grounded, easy-going person that she is.

Balance & Support

"My purpose at The Healing Room is to support and nourish people who are accountable and proactive on their health journey. I love being a partner with my clients on their health journey, understanding them at a deep level, and being able to provide exactly what they need at any given time." ~ Dr Kristy

Meet Our Communications Co-ordinator

Debbie Turbitt

Debbie has always had an interest in health and wellness, but this turned into a passion once she became a mum.The year leading up to her son’s birth was the hardest of her life as she cared for her father and watched cancer and diabetes rob him of his life.

Debbie realised how precious our health is more than ever during those months, and how important it is to eat well, exercise, try to avoid toxins in our lives and most of happy and fulfilled! She believes we have a responsibility to do that for our kids, not only to give them the best chance at a long, healthy and full life, but to do it for ourselves too - so that we can be the best version of ourselves for the people around us.

Once the time came to venture back into the workforce after being a full-time mum, Debbie decided to use her marketing and communications skills to help businesses that are doing amazing things in the world - helping people live happier, healthier lives. Which is how she found her way to us!

Warmth & Nurturance

"My purpose is to help people feel nurtured, warmly welcomed and beautifully supported each time they have contact with us. I love being part of a team that has people’s wellness and wellbeing at the core of what they do, and I love that I get to help spread education that changes lives far and wide." ~ Deb
