The Spine Studio

The Spine Studio is a holistic chiropractic and wellness studio in Perth, WA (formerly known as Nervana Chiropractic Warwick). 

We are passionate about empowering our community to transform their health through natural means - through the care of the spine and nervous system in restoring and maintaining a clear, brain-body connection for better function and wellbeing. 

We believe we can unlock our optimal life potential by trusting in the healing power of the body and supporting it with healthier lifestyle choices. 



Dr. Janice Chan


My chiropractic journey started from being under care myself at the age of 14. From an early age, I knew I wanted to help others reach their full health potential through natural alternatives. 

I completed a five year, double degree to attain my chiropractic qualifications - Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and Bachelor of Chiropractic. 

One of the most rewarding things I get from being a chiropractor is empowering people about their body, their health and seeing them make positive changes in their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

I am passionate about caring for whole families and people of all ages.

"It is never too late or too early to start looking after your body and health."

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and two fur-babies. I enjoy food (especially eating it!) and travelling. I love to ski, snowboard and scuba-dive, leading an active lifestyle.




I started my journey to becoming a chiropractor after having 3 children in 3 years and experiencing lower back pain. After experiencing first hand how chiropractic care helped me and my 18 month old baby, I decided I had found my calling in life.


I deferred my studies in history and education and sought work as a chiropractic assistant. I got to see on a daily basis the impact of chiropractic in people's lives.


After a whirlwind weekend attending a chiropractic conference, I began studying Chiropractic at Murdoch University in 2015.

I am now in my final year of chiropractic. I have already had some amazing opportunities to travel all over Australia and to South Africa as part of my desire to grow and develop throughout my studies. I have been a chiropractic assistant during my 5 years of study and have been so fortunate to work with some truly amazing Chiropractors along the way.

I was first introduced to Chiropractic at the age of 13. My dad took me to his chiropractor the day before I was due to fly out to compete at the Norwegian Championships.


The chiropractor actually came into work at 5 am the next morning when I was flying out to see me and I thought, 'Wow this guy is so dedicated, and really cares about my health'.

The experience had such an impact that in that moment I realised this was a profession for me! 


After 5 years at university, I also completed further studies in chiropractic care for children. This is an area I am most passionate about.

As a mum myself, I take great pride in being able to support mums-to-be on the special journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond.

I love sharing the power of natural alternatives and empowering families about their health. 


In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 2 little girls and our fur baby Viggo.


We enjoy being active together as a family, some of our favourite places involve the beach or pools! 



I was originally under care for a few years before I took the opportunity to join the team and help others along their health journey. It didn't take long after starting my care to become passionate about its affects on function and general wellbeing that I personally experienced.


I have been working at The Spine Studio for over 3 years. 

What I find most gratifying about working in this field is seeing how much people change and improve in many aspects of their health and wellbeing.

In my spare time I enjoy spending a lot of time with family, going on adventures with friends to see new places, working on my health and fitness, and finding new ways to make my home feel more like my own homely little forest.

Remedial Massage Therapist & Post-natal Doula of Halcyon Wellness


My journey with massage began 5 years ago when I took a leap of faith and decided to try my hand at Remedial massage with the move to focus on rehabilitation and injury management.


Within two weeks of the course, I knew this was where I wanted to be and decided to quit the corporate world after 10 years and pursue a whole new career.


As I got further through my studies, my passion also moved towards Pregnancy Massage and I wanted to support women during the amazing transformation pregnancy has on our bodies and minds. 

When I fell pregnant with my first daughter, I learnt so much more about the body and the ways we can support it during pregnancy. This is when I began to undertake regular chiropractic care at The Spine Studio.


My own pregnancy sparked a huge passion in women’s health, but also identified gaps in both the need for more specialised care to support a women’s body during pregnancy, as well as emotional support for women post baby. So on top of my body work qualifications I have also completed my training to be a post natal doula.


In my spare time I soak up all the things motherhood has to offer with my two girls. We love going to the beach, indulging in delicious food and spending time with our friends and family.
