Dr. Lauren Moroney
Hi, I’m Lauren!
I grew up in Haberfield, Sydney and graduated from Macquarie and Sydney Universities to attain my Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and Master of Chiropractic degree in 2005. I have worked as a Radiographer, Massage therapist and Chiropractic assistant whilst completing my University qualifications. I initially started out of Uni practising in the North Shore, then I worked for 10 years in Mortdale, then in Lugarno. I enjoyed working in different places in Sydney.
I practice a variety of Chiropractic techniques including Activator, Torque Release Technique (TRT), Flexion Distraction, SOT, Webster technique for pregnancy, Diversified and NIP (Neuro Impulse Protocol). I have studied paediatric techniques for treating children, and women during pregnancy, and I am able to mould orthotics for the feet.
I live in Port Macquarie with my husband and two children.
I look forward to seeing you in the clinic!
Dr. Brendan Hoey
Hi my name is Brendan.
I have a passion for health and fitness and have been in the fitness industry as a personal trainer since 2008. I served for 4-years in the military in the Royal Australian Air Force as an Airfield Defence Guard. I was lucky enough to complete a tour of Afghanistan in 2012-2013 for 7 and a half months and complete many other courses and develop great skills during my service.
I also have a passion for sport and in recent years have turned towards Ironman in which I have completed 2 full events in Port Macquarie in 2018 and 2019. The goal is to finish one in under 10 hours. I studied Chiropractic at Central Queensland University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and a Masters in Clinical Chiropractic.
I developed a passion for different Chiropractic techniques and methods while at university and utilise them in my adjustments. These include sacro-occipital technique (SOT), Activator, Diversified, Drop piece, Muscle activation, Dry needling and Trigger point therapy. My Chiropractic philosophy is “weakness is the cause of all disease and dysfunction in the body”.
When a structure, whether it be muscle, bone, cartilage etc, is put under a stressor, which can be physical, chemical etc, and is greater than its ability to sustain, it will ultimately lead to that structure failing and either breaking or becoming diseased. Weakness is not only a muscles ability to withstand load applied, it can also be from neurological compromise, compensation patterns, or a number of other causes. In all my treatments I aim to have you leaving the adjustment stronger than when you walked in. This is measured through a range of testing methods including muscular and neurological, so that the cause of the weakness will be identified and corrected, leaving you stronger to face the world. I look forward to seeing you in the clinic and helping you achieve your health goals.

Hi, I’m Hayley. I joined the team in July 2016 and have loved learning about effective Chiropractic care.
As a mother of two active young boys, optimal health and a balanced lifestyle is important to me. I like staying healthy by visiting the gym, walking our dog, Digger, and enjoying Port Macquarie’s many beautiful beaches with family and friends.
