How does your chiropractic process work?


First, we conduct our uniquely designed 10-step chiropractic check-up to identify the imbalances, the root cause of the problem and related symptoms. The results, images, and measurements are clearly communicated to you to promote clarity, insight, and confidence in the process.

Secondly, we implement a personalised healing plan to address the imbalances and positively impact the measurements from the initial 10-step assessment, using advanced chiropractic techniques. By using this particular approach, which includes scheduled progress reports, we are able to deliver measurable results to our clients.

Why Choose Us?

We deliver advanced chiropractic care based on measurement-based data to deliver measurable results to our clients. We conduct a thorough initial chiropractic assessment to quantify, scan and measure using our uniquely designed 10-step check-up.

Our experienced practitioners, Dr Sanvir Maharaj and Dr Douglass Cheng, have a combined 21 years of clinical experience and more than 95,576 chiropractic adjustments performed. Both have a true passion for measurement-based chiropractic, which shows in the results achieved for our clients.

Both our Richmond chiropractors are fully qualified as doctors in chiropractic, registered with the General Chiropractic Council, and have been privileged to receive training and mentoring from some of the best and most successful chiropractors in the world.

Dr Sanvir, the founder of Healing Hands Chiropractic, suffered a particularly bad accident early on in his career that allowed him to experience the power of chiropractic healing first hand. This was certainly no walk in the park but did give him a special level of empathy and confidence in his profession.

Some interesting facts

Did you know…?

More than 50% of people will have back pain at some point in their lives, and most individuals over 60 years of age have had some significant trauma to their spine.

Bad posture, headaches, neck pain, bad sleep, low energy, migraines and joint pain have never been more prominent than they are today.

What are the reasons behind this?

  • Prolonged driving
  • Long hours in front of a desk and computer
  • Improper office chairs and desks
  • Bad ergonomics
  • Poor diet
  • Improper pillow and mattress
  • Accidents and traumas (including minor ones)
  • Injuries from sport (running, swimming, football, badminton, rugby, squash, polo, tennis, basketball, table tennis etc.)
  • Any repetitive movement
  • Stress/stressful situations


These factors play a role in creating stress points on the spine and stress zones on the muscles that may move the spine out of alignment.

Did you know…?

According to research, 43.2% of women have had some type of tension or cervicogenic headache.


Nerve pressure can result in numbness, tingling and the feeling of pins and needles in almost any part of the body but eventually can progress to sharp stabbing pains. Any pressure on the autonomic nervous system may start to affect organ health and function.

What should we do when we start to get pain?

We should get properly assessed so that we can determine why the pain is there and where it’s coming from. Is it referred pain? Is the spine misaligned and stressing out the muscles? Is it purely muscular? Is it postural? What is the actual state of the spine? Is there damage or arthritis? Are the discs plump and healthy? Were we born with any odd-shaped vertebra (congenital abnormalities)?

The strategy moving forward towards amazing health and energy looks at altering lifestyles by removing stressors but also by finding ways to allow the body to start healing itself naturally as a result of correcting imbalances and taking pressure off joints, muscles and nerves. Better dietary decisions have an impact on health in general and are a significant part of health and vitality. Teaching mindfulness and meditation is a great way of helping all facets of health including mind, body and spirit, for a fuller and more holistic approach to health care.

Spinal care may help with:

  • reducing sick days at work
  • getting back to sports and exercise
  • being active and pain-free
  • increasing strength
  • increasing vitality
  • getting back to normal life
  • reducing re-injuries
  • and much, much more.

What our Clients have to say about us:

-Moe E

Dr Sanvir is the man. I used to suffer with regular headaches, stiff neck and shoulder, and lower back pain for as long as I can remember. Within 2 weeks, 90% of the pain went away and after 3 months my spine is pretty much straight, fewer headaches and no pain in my neck, shoulder or lower back. My sleeping has improved as well! All the staff are fantastic, warm and welcoming, I was sceptical at first but thought I would give them a try. Never did I think I would see such a great improvement so quickly. – Moe E.


Before Christmas I was suffering from pain in my lower back area. A friend recommended me to this clinic so I decided to give it a try and I am so pleased that I did. Not only has the pain gone away, but you can see the difference how my posture was and hot it is now. Thank you DrSanvir.

- Evan R.

I have been seeing Dr Sanvir since June 2015. Before coming to see him, I struggled with my joints – It was extremely painful and difficult to bend. I Q been suffering with this for the past year but it kept getting worse. Sanvir has shown me the beneficial value of chiropractic in both mind and body. Following the beneficial sessions for my joints, he has also devoted time to work on my back which had worn with age. I am now feeling much better, both mentally and physically.

- Sarah

My first visit was in February 2011, after year of back pain and associated symptoms. Myself and my family are now complete converts to the benefits of chiropractic treatment and wish to share our story with anyone investing in their health. I have always suffered from lower back pain since being a teenager. I knew there was a weakness there. My back pain continued in my twenties but was no more than an uncomfortable ache, something that I ignored and put up with. During my pregnancy with my first baby, I suffered with terrible back ache which was compounded by a difficult labour and birth. The year following my daughter’s birth was challenging.
