“I’m married to Annette and we have four children and four grandchildren. Our youngest daughter Hannah has graduated as a Chiropractor to carry on the family tradition. Our oldest daughter Shelley is married to Jeff and they have three sons – Will, Tom and Jack. Our second daughter Carly is married to Sean with one daughter – Maddison. Our son Luke is the manager of a FORD car dealership in Brisbane.”

“I love the sea! Living at Runaway Bay gives me access to the water so I can go boating, fishing and jet skiing. I also enjoy travelling, not only around Australia, but overseas. However, there’s nothing quite like the Australian bush for camping and touring. Perhaps you’ll resonate with my favourite quote, “Consistency is the key to success in any endeavour.” I hope I get the opportunity to meet you and become your family’s chiropractor.

Dr Hannah Pace, Chiropractor

Dr Hannah is a highly qualified and caring chiropractor dedicated to helping others through her profession. As a teen, she experienced firsthand how chiropractic care can non-invasively alleviate pain by addressing the cause of a problem. “I was immediately fascinated with chiropractic’s approach to healthcare, from the examination to the X-rays and knowledge of my chiropractor. I was hooked from the first visit and wanted to be able to help others in the same way.”

To prepare for her career, Dr Hannah earned a Bachelor of Science in Chiropractic and a Master of Clinical Chiropractic from Central Queensland University in Mackay, QLD, where she graduated in February 2019.

As a Yogi, Carly incorporates the philosophy of Yoga in how she treats people. “With natural medicine and allopathic medicine, we’re focused on physical healing. But with Yoga, we look at different types of bodies often overlooked-the emotional body, the energetic body and the spiritual body.”

Carly uses Quantum Healing to get information from the body by sitting with it and seeing what it’s trying to tell you. “I do a lot of emotional healing as well as spiritual healing through the modalities used.”

After 25+ yrs of learning and healing my own Thyroid condition, I created my signature ‘Metabolic Alchemy’ courses that blends, Nutrition, Exercise, Yoga, Gut Healing, Meditation and more so that you can learn how to lose weight and keep it off the right way. It’s tried and tested by hundreds of my clients and I fully live and breathe my lessons everyday.
