Alex Oxford

Alexander Oxford, CEO Postural Facilitation

Alexander founded Spinopractic Massage utilising deep tissue mobilisation because it was getting results. “I have been involved in bodywork since the age of 12 when my back was debilitated. Ever since that time, I was interested in what was getting results. The more I researched and tested techniques the more I found that going into deep fascia was getting the best results.”

To prepare for his career in massage, Alexander earned a Diploma of Remedial massage in 1993 and an Advanced Diploma of NeuroSpinology in 2005. He is also a trainer in NLP and hypnosis. Alexander stays abreast of the latest in the field of massage by regularly taking professional development courses. He is passionate about learning more and more each day.

For Alexander, the most gratifying aspect of his role is helping people.

I know how much it changed my life; I wanted to give back that gift.”

His passion extends in teaching others to become a Master Practitioner of Spinopractic Massage.

When he’s not working, Alexander enjoys being with his daughter and his partner. He also likes going to the gym and working out with weights. His other favourite thing to do is going to the movies.

Anna

Anna, Chiropractic Assistant

Throughout her life, Anna has been interested in health and caring for people. After working almost 10 years in the hospital as a nurse, she wanted to shift from an environment where medical solutions were the only options given.

I wanted to be part of something that could help prevent people from needing medication or surgery. Having benefited from chiropractic care myself, I knew this wouldn’t be just a job, but something I believe in.”

For Anna, the most fulfilling aspect of being a CA is witnessing the changes in our patients over time and hearing how chiropractic has benefited them.

When she’s not at the practice, Anna is passionate about faith, food, fun and fellowship! She likes to spend time with family and friends, having meals together, and camping in the bush or at the beach. She also stays active by going for bush walks and swimming.

Married with two grown children, Anna also has a scruffy little dog named Max. She enjoys listening to all kinds of music, but particularly something she can sing along to and have a bit of a boogie!

Dean Iddon, Chiropractic Assistant

As a chiropractic assistant, I enjoy helping patients to achieve their goals and outcomes through having a better understanding of spinal health.

For Dean, chiropractic care is a big part of his life. “My wife was in an accident and I have watched how regular visits to the chiropractor have helped her to lead a more normal life.” Caring for his wife and her ongoing spinal injury has given Dean a unique insight into the world of spinal pain and living with such issues. He and his wife have both been receiving chiropractic care for more than 12 years. “We certainly ‘feel’ the difference if we happen to miss an appointment!”

Dean and his wife have recently relocated back to the Redlands after spending the past 25 years raising their five sons in Toowoomba. He worked in his own Business there for 10 years and has worked in customer care for more than 30 years. Now as empty nesters, the couple has settled on Macleay[a] Island and loves being back on the Redlands.

Living on an island, Dean enjoys boating, fishing and crabbing with some building and handyman chores thrown in! He and his wife recently became first-time grandparents to an adorable little girl.

Ariana Mezin’s journey into Spinopractic massage began with her family. Witnessing the remarkable improvements in her loved ones after treatment, she felt compelled to help others achieve similar results. Always drawn to the idea of helping people reach their peak performance, discovering Spinopractic massage became the perfect path for her. From the moment it was introduced to her and her family, she knew it was the right calling.

Qualifications and Professional Growth

Ariana completed her Spinopractic massage training while still in high school, demonstrating a remarkable commitment to her craft early on. Despite the challenges of balancing coursework, she embraced the opportunity to pursue her passion directly after graduation. This preparation allowed her to start practising immediately and has shaped her into a master practitioner today.
