Online registration has now closed, however you can still register on the day - speak to one of our team at the venue on Friday during the registraiton period from 4pm

Welcome

A comment often made to me whilst overseas is how lucky we are in New Zealand to enjoy such a great chiropractic environment compared with most other parts of the world.

In New Zealand, we have learnt that by working together we can create and maintain a strong, united profession.

The theme of Lyceum 2017 is Greater Together and highlights the positive influence New Zealand has had and is still having on chiropractic worldwide.

Join us, and together we’ll take the next step in making our profession and your practice greater together.

And don’t forget the fun. Friday night live is always a highlight in terms of reconnecting at the start of the weekend and the Masquerade Ball will offer good food, a few drinks, and plenty more fun.

Please join me and take advantage of some motivating speakers. As always there will be a surprise or two, so let’s make the most of this once a year opportunity to be greater together at Lyceum.

Dr Phil McMaster
President, New Zealand College of Chiropractic

Hurry Up!

    There appears to be a growing requirement for evidence of the validity of the practice of Chiropractic. Whether that requirement comes from within the profession or from another profession or from the public, is not clear. However, there is more than enough common sense arguments for the practice of Chiropractic based on an understanding of our philosophical tenants. This talk plans to present this understanding and establish the reasoning behind regular Chiropractic care for the whole family based on the philosophy of Chiropractic.

    This is a very informative and engaging presentation that is immediately applicable to all practicing chiropractors. Cerebral asymmetry, functionality, and the impact that chiropractic adjustments have on the brain will be emphasized during this presentation. We have long known that the hemispheres of the brain contribute to our overall perspective on the world we live in. But is our perception of the world around us always true or is there an abstract element to consider. Can our beliefs and perceptions be oddly influenced? This is surely a presentation that you don’t want to miss.

  • 11:30 - 12:00
    Resent scientific studies are revealing a new understanding about how spinal adjustments work. Today, over a hundred years on from that ‘first’ chiropractic adjustment, we know much more about how the brain and the rest of the central nervous system functions. Dr Heidi Haavik will share with you a summary of where we are at with the neurophysiological understanding of the impact of spinal function on brain function, discuss how this has very important clinical implications for us all and will share her thoughts on the future implications this growing body of research has for us as a profession.

  • 12:00 - 13:30
