Meet Dr April Traynor

Dr April Traynor

I was born and raised in a small country town in Ontario, Canada. I grew up knowing that I wanted to be a doctor; that I wanted to help people be healthy. As I got older I started to realize that the kind of doctor that made the most sense to me was a Chiropractor. I really liked the idea of helping people get well naturally and looking at whole health instead of just one part.

I started my university education at Trent University in Canada where I completed a bachelor of science with honours. My dream to become a Chiropractor led me to Australia to study Chiropractic. Australia is leading the world by being the first country in the world to have a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Masters of Chiropractic.

Following eight years of university level study I graduated as a Chiropractor.

After graduating, my first associate position was in the practice that I now own, Health in Hands Chiropractic. I remembering walking in to my interview the first day and being amazed by the vibrancy, energy and enthusiasm of the people that came there and worked there. And I remember thinking “I want to help create this”.

I love what I do, I love the opportunity to inspire and empower families towards a better life, to share what I have learnt and am learning about health and wellness. I consider the greatest trust someone can give you is to entrust their health and their family’s health with you. I take this very seriously and genuinely strive for and expect excellence, integrity and passion from myself and my team. Part of being registered as a Chiropractor in Australia is ongoing professional development which my team and I participate in regularly.

I love nature, I love health and I love my family. I have two beautiful children, Belle and Thomas. They are inspirations and constant sources of joy. Watching them both grow and change is an ongoing testament to what the human body and mind is designed to do naturally. In my spare time you can find me cycling on the bike path in Wollongong, spending time with my children, or doing anything that can have me on or near the water.

My vision is to continue to learn, grow and share. To inspire others to achieve their full life potential and to continue to provide wellness solutions in an environment of support and love for people to achieve health and happiness. By being the leaders of health and wellness in the Illawarra, for Health in Hands to contribute to the improvement of the health of our community.

It is a joy to be able to share the truths that I have learnt about health and wellness and to see people get well and stay well. Please feel welcome to contact me by email or call our wonderful Practice Manager, to reserve an Initial Consultation with me. Let’s see what steps you can take to having a better life.

Yours in Health and Happiness
