Nikki Blanco
Chiropractic Assistant / Remedial Massage Therapist

Nikki grew up in the small town of Port Hedland and was sent to boarding school in Perth for her high school years, where she decided to stay after graduating. She is a passionate athlete in both contact and combat sports, participating in Rowing, AFL, and Rugby at school and in recent years switched to Martial Arts. She is currently training in Thai kick boxing where her goal is to jump the ropes into the ring for her first amateur bout.

With her love of high intensity contact sports Nikki has had her own fair share of injury and setbacks in training, she is a firm believer in the importance of rest and recovery for peak performance and studied a Diploma of Remedial Massage at North Metro TAFE where she took a keen interest in sports massage and athlete recovery. It was due to her most recent injury that she decided to try chiropractic care for persistent pain, it is now a nonnegotiable in her recovery plan.

A note from Nikki: "I am so incredibly passionate about my industry and how powerful simple manual therapy is in stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. But speaking from my own experience, Chiropractic care in conjunction with Remedial massage has given me some remarkable results and that is why I love working alongside Dr. Nathalie".
