2018 has been another busy and exciting year here at Peak Chiropractic.
January & February
We started the year as we aimed to go on, with a party! We enjoyed our practice bar, where we got to hang out with you and your families. We look forward to our 2019 braai on Friday, February 8.
We also implemented measures to avoid Day Zero. We hope to keep up with these water saving measures despite the restrictions now being relaxed.
Dr Greg and Dr Donne attended a paediatric seminar over 2 weekends, one in Jo’burg and the other in Durban. They completed courses in Neonatal Examination, Spinal & Cranial Correction and Treatment of Common Paediatric Syndromes. They will both be attending the follow-up in this seminar series in February 2019.
We had our first Tea Tasting Evening with our friends at The Tea Journey. They have been supplying us with all of the tasty teas that you are enjoying when you come in for your adjustments.

Our team events are organised by two of us and the rest of the team only find out the day before! It keeps everyone in suspense and makes it even more special. The team was surprised by Penny and Eils with a MasterChef Challenge hosted by Food Jams. Check out the video montage on our Facebook Page.

Eils completed a babywearing course through Slingababy, a UK-based babywearing school. She is now a certified babywearing consultant and is available to see expectant parents to help them before baby arrives, families who are completely new to babywearing (whether it’s newborn or toddler stage) and experienced baby wearers looking for extra tips and tricks.
