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.

Meet our Practice Manager

Lynn Ross

Lynn has a long history of enjoying a natural approach to her health and well being. She grew up in Canada in a farming community and started having chiropractic care at the age of fourteen. Later she met the man of her dreams who just happens to be a chiropractor and together they took over a long standing practice in Victoria, British Columbia, had two sons, and enjoyed the west coast life of sailing and the great outdoors.

In 2000 they sailed away from Canada on the adventure of a lifetime. They spent time sailing around Mexico, crossed the Pacific Ocean, and then cruised around French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Samoa and Tonga. Cyclone season brought them to New Zealand and lifestyle plus a desire for new opportunities saw them settle here at the end of 2001. Their boys are now men and firmly settled into the New Zealand lifestyle. Lynn and her husband have continued their paths in the chiropractic community and love being here.

Lynn has always been a great fan of The Healing Room and started care with Jolanta many years ago. She believes the multi-dimensional approach of The Healing Room team is so important to unlocking your true potential as we are all unique in who we are and what it takes to make and keep us vibrant and well. Lynn loves being a part of an environment that promotes true wellness and supports people on their journey to their best life.

Support & Understanding

"My purpose is to be someone who listens and responds with an open heart and mind so that I can empower each person to take the step towards an improved quality of life - whether they’re searching for someone who can help or perhaps needing some encouragement to continue. I believe the first step in making change is to feel that your needs are listened to, and I love giving this support both to our clients and our practitioners." ~ Lynn

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!

Meet our Team Leader

Dr Jolanta Williams (Jo)

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
