Dr. Dean Carter

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his or her patients in the care of the human frame, in proper diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas A Edison

Dr. Dean Carter's approach to health and life philosophy is holistic, vitalistic and natural. His unique view of health is the underpinning foundation of Living Chiropractic & Wellness.The impact of losing many family members to lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer was the main influence for him to study health sciences, lifestyle and wellness care as a way of life and vocation.

He trained first in 1999 as a massage therapist specializing in Hawaiian and Polynesian healing, sports and deep tissue and practiced fulltime for seven years in his own massage therapy clinic in Auckland.The challenge to become a wellness chiropractor then pointed his path to the Auckland University of Technology to complete a Diploma of Science and to the New Zealand College of Chiropractic where he graduated after 5 years fulltime study as a Bachelor of Chiropractic.

Dr. Dean's personal journey into chiropractic was influenced by major impact on his health and wellbeing. As a 10 year old he was badly injured multiple times falling from motocross bikes and while participating in contact sports.By the age of 17 he was suffering poor health with symptoms of daily chronic low back pain with sciatica, and chronic neck pain with headaches. The next 15 years that followed was an unhealthy experience through the medical system using countless medications for pain and inflammation, hundreds of hours of treatment from physio, massage therapists and osteopaths with little result. His journey finally resolved with an intensive schedule of chiropractic care with wellness strategies that changed his life forever.
