Dr Hayden Thomas was born and raised in sunny Nelson, NZ and his first encounter with chiropractic was as a baby. He had a difficult delivery in which forceps were used, and due to trauma to his neck he could only turn his head to one side to feed. Thankfully, his mother took him to her chiropractor for some gentle spinal care and since then he has enjoyed the benefits of regular adjustments throughout his life. This inspired him to become a chiropractor to help others live to their optimum function and potential.
Dr Hayden graduated from the University of Auckland in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2001 with his Chiropractic degree. He then spent several months undertaking continued training at the prestigious Life Chiropractic College West in San Francisco, USA. Over the past 10 years, Dr Hayden has worked extensively around New Zealand as a locum and for a year in Ireland before returning to Nelson to set up his own practice.
Dr Hayden is passionate about the importance of proper spinal function for overall health and how chiropractic can help individuals of all ages. He is actively involved in the NZ Chiropractors’ Association as a council member and spokesperson and also the NZ College of Chiropractic Alumni Association and Nelson Wellness Cluster.
His extensive training in spinal care and background in biomechanics, anatomy and physiology along with a holistic paradigm has given him an appreciation for the importance of physical, bio-chemical and emotional factors in health. Good posture, a properly functioning spine and nervous system and quality sleep are all keystones of good health. The correct choice of bed can make a positive difference in this.
The NZCA is proud to be associated with Sleepyhead as a progressive New Zealand company that focuses on a quality product and continual innovations for a better night’s sleep and better life by day.
