Born and raised in New Zealand when Andrew was 15 years old Chiropractic changed his life. It helped him regain his health that had suddenly disappeared and once again be an active, sporting and energetic young man.

During this time he entered and won the World Chiropractic speech contest “Talk the Tic”,  Andrew's passion is clear to see.

Today Andrew lives his life passionately dedicated helping raise the standard of Chiropractic in Germany so that people of all ages can live life at their full potential.

Finn Schütte

Andrew talks with Finn about Chiropractic

Having played sports all his life Finn suffered a crippling knee injury that put everything on hold. With over a year and half and seeing many types of practitioners it was a chance meeting with a Chiropractor who was able to help bring Finn's body back into balance. Fueled by this experience and being one of the most motivated people you will meet, Finn is determined that nobody will wait a year and a half to get back on track.

As a member of the Bund Deutscher Chiropraktiker (BDC), Finn has completed his four years of chiropractic studies at the Chiropraktik Akademie and the International University of Dresden. Has extensively studied chiropractic technique and application under a diverse group of international lecturers. With the goal: to make chiropractic care available to everyone, regardless of age or circumstances.

John Minardi (Canada), Andrew McCracken (NZ), Bradley Hennen (USA), Robert Straub (DE) including Sacral Occipital Technique, Craniopathie, Gonstead, Thompson, Activator, Diversified, MLS and Upper Cervical Techniques.

Finn is proactive and passionate about naturally increasing the potential of the body so that everyone can do what they want to do.

Alisha Reinhardt

Alisha has been in chiropractic care since she was a kid. After chiropractic helped her mother significantly with her migraines, she discovered that her daughter could benefit from the care just as much she did. Growing up with the trust of chiropractic care, she decided that she wanted to give others the same chance to live to their full potential.

She completed her four year study at the Chiropraktik Akademie and Dresden International University (DIU). Alisha has worked in several practices in northern Germany, training her chiropractic skills.

Always interested in gaining more knowledge, Alisha will be pursuing her Masters degree in Translational Neuroscience at Heinrich Heine University. When she’s not in the practice taking care of practice members, she is passionate about improving her overall knowledge and incorporating this into her work in the practice.

Ruben Mateo

Ruben first became involved with chiropractic at the age of 16. At that time he was actively playing soccer and was often exposed to minor injuries, that got better with regular chiropractic adjustments.

Through his first experience with chiropractic, he quickly realized that he needed to learn this skill. Being a skill and a vocation at the same time, chiropractic can be carried through life. A craft that can be practiced by hands only and which helps people, seemed rare to him and therefore inspired him even more.

Because he has family in the Dominican Republic, it is also his ambition to bring chiropractic to this country.

After a 5 year long, successfully completed study and practical experience, he is now happy to be part of the team at "Kiwi Chiropractic". A practice that brings all the possibilities to create personal growth for him as a chiropractor and a person, as well as the improvement of health for the praxis members to the table.

Fernanda Parmejane Matioli

My name is Fernanda Parmejane Matioli. I may look familiar to you because I worked at Kiwi Chiropractic last year. I left for a bit due to personal reasons, and am now back. I am Brazilian and Italian, as seen in my second name, Parmejane, and speak Portuguese, English, Spanish and have a good understanding of Italian. I’m a graduate of the Universidade Anhembi Morumbi and the owner and director of Quiropraxia Saúde in Brazil, which employs 5 chiropractors. I continue to manage the business while living in Germany.

A self proclaimed nerd in regards to all things regarding health, I love a good inspirational quote and invigorating activities, especially surrounding nature. Anyone who knows me, knows I love to exercise, maintain a healthy lifestyle and have a good nights sleep. I enjoy sharing my love and passion for helping people take their health to the next level, often traveling to visit new chiropractors and wellness places to learn new things about people and health, and show people the importance of keeping the nervous system healthy through chiropractic adjustments. My mission is to grow, learn and live to 110, laughing and 'dancing' all the way while serving people around the world who want the same things.

I recently moved back to Düsseldorf and am learning German. I have 15 years experience in the chiropractic world. I've lived in Peru, Ireland, Australia and Portugal, where I had the opportunity to experience different cultures and add to my life resilience. I’m passionate about disrupting the cultural norm around what is health and showing people how easy it is to take their health to the next level and in turn, optimize their life. I'm a great supporter of the non-invasive approach that chiropractic offers. I’m the co-founder of the NGO Chiropractic Without Borders in Brazil, where I develop missions and social campaigns to bring the benefits of the practice to needy communities.
