Dr Robert Leigh, Chiropractor

Born and raised in Sydney, I moved to Perth in 1995 and have enjoyed serving clients in the Nedlands area ever since and am grateful to have settled in the best state in Australia with my wife Sharon and three boys. I enjoy golfing, singing and researching the ever-evolving science of human physiology and well-being to provide the best advice for a healthy life. I incorporate soft tissue therapy and several adjusting techniques with all my clients at each session.

In Pursuit of a Chiropractic Career!

Having been fascinated by the wonders of the human body from an early age with my father working as a nutritionist and seeing him regularly adjusted by chiropractors, it followed that at my year 10 careers day, I decided to embark on a chiropractic career.

After completing a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and Physiology at Sydney University, I gained a Master of Chiropractic Science from Macquarie University. At University, I massaged patients in chiropractic clinics before their chiropractor adjusted them. It was a great hands-on experience and laid the foundation for my current approach to my chiropractic practice, involving deep soft tissue releases before adjustments.

The Privilege of Supporting my Clients

Having now practised at Chelsea Chiropractic and Wellness for 28 years, it has been my privilege to share in the life journeys of many of my clients and now be at the stage where I am adjusting 3 to 4 generations of families, seeing newborns through 97-year-old clients who still have a spring in their step and enjoy life.

We Reap What We Sow – Our Bodies are Designed to Thrive

I attend the Natural Medicine Congress annually to keep abreast of the latest research about living healthier lives and enjoy sharing this knowledge with my clients. We are not programmed for daily tiredness, fatigue, anxiety, anger, irritability, aching joints, depression and diabetes. Still, we are innately programmed for energy and vitality and being able to enjoy life to the full.

As part of our resources at Chelsea Chiropractic and Wellness, we stock a premium range of supplements with evidence-based nutrients that can play an integral part in restoring and maintaining health in combination with the benefits that regular chiropractic adjustments bring.

Life Balance Important in Hectic Lives

In 1999 I married the love of my life, and we now have three wonderful boys. Perth’s weather, outdoor facilities, parks, beaches and coastal lifestyle make it, in our opinion, the perfect place for raising a family. Having started golf at the age of 12, I now play once weekly at The Vines and not only is it a challenge, but a form of escape and replenishment for the mind and the body. Walking the dew-covered fairways as the golden sun rays reflect off the trees in the early morning is simply good for the soul. Life is busy, and prioritising enjoyable and relaxing activities is vital in helping us to live our healthiest, best lives.


Solution for Stress and Anxiety 

Day to day, in our fast-paced, high-tech lives, our productivity and the stresses we are exposed to have multiplied exponentially. Chiropractic adjustments help our bodies to cope with these stresses. Adjustments enhance the function of our brain and nervous system, which in turn helps activate the rest and repair mode our bodies need for optimal wellness.

I look forward to being able to help people enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care throughout their journey of life. So give us a buzz or book online to start your Chelsea Chiro journey.
