David Reading

Integrative Chiropractor

I have always loved being fit and active. In truth, it is the reason I became a chiropractor – as a kid I was in the clinic every second week due to my flagrant disregard for my body whilst playing sport. When the time came for me to pick a career, I remember thinking “well, that looks like fun”, and so it began. Even now, after more than a decade as an integrative chiropractor, I can still honestly say I love doing what I do. Each and every day we get to help a huge variety of people with all sorts of problems and ailments, from newborn children to centurions.

At its core, health is all about change and momentum. I constantly see people who have been stuck in a negative cycle where injury and disease have robbed them of their ability to do the things they love. By addressing the body as a whole, whether it be physical, emotional or biochemical, I help people to shift their momentum forward and take back their health. My passion and love for my work is driven by the joy I get from watching my patients take this journey.

Outside of Beyond Self, I’m lucky enough to be blessed with an amazing wife Maddy and three gorgeous boys, Jackson, Colby and Rory, who keep me on my toes. I’ve lived my whole life here on the beaches and love nothing better than a good mountain bike around the dam or an epic day down at Dee Why Beach. I get along to Jiu Jitsu every week to help keep my mind clear and blow off any stress, and most Saturday’s in winter I can be seen in the mighty green and gold of Curl Curl as I live out my never ending dream of being a professional soccer player.

For me, health isn’t a diet or a fad, it is a way of life. It is about finding the balance that works for you, that makes you feel amazing, energises you on a daily basis and takes you to where you want you to go.
