“Happier, More Confident Child”
David was soiling and bed wetting. We were unable to plan any outings. The embarrassment and lack of understanding was more than we could cope with.
After receiving Chiropractic care, David is a happier, more confident child. We were all severely affected by his condition and we are now happier and more relaxed about going anywhere! The doubts and unknowns of a chiropractor's methods was overcome easily by the extremely friendly and easy going attitude of this friendly clinic.

"Confidence And Self-Esteem Has Grown”
Stephen had no bladder or bowel control. He also had no fine motor skills. At 6 years old, he had low self-esteem and was very moody and felt left out. He was given tablets by the doctor which, helped at first but, eventually the tablets stopped working. Since receiving Chiropractic care, Stephen now has total bladder and bowel control. He can now participate in all ball sports and his handwriting is beautiful. His confidence and self-esteem has grown by 100%.

“Baby From Heaven”
After 1 week we noticed a big improvement. After each treatment we noticed a big difference. We went from the baby from ‘hell’ to the baby from ‘heaven’, no exaggerations.

“We Have A Different Child”
From birth Cameron cried day and night and he didn’t gain weight. It put intense pressure on our marriage and jobs as we were only getting 2 hours sleep per night.
After receiving Chiropractic care we have a different child. He is happy, content, alert, gaining weight and growing. Since having treatment at 4 months he gained 6 pounds in 8 weeks and has a bowel motion naturally every day. He also seems more coordinated and moves all the time.
-- A. L. - Gisborne
“Tyler Is Off All Medication”
Tyler had a bowel disorder. 4 years of paediatricians and medication. Tyler’s ability to go somewhere and not stink was never guaranteed. We always needed to carry a change of clothes. Tyler had 4 years of Lactulose and Senocot. This left him drained with no hope of him gaining bowel control naturally.
After 6 months of Chiropractic care Tyler is off all medication, the paediatrician has given him a clean bill of health and he is discharged now from her care!! Tyler’s self-esteem, pride in managing himself and not having any medication is fantastic. THANK YOU!!

“The Crying and Reflux Stopped”
Rylee was screaming all the time with reflux. She had these symptoms for 3˝ months and was really making me feel useless as a mother as I didn’t know anything was wrong with her. We had been giving Rylee Colimed to help bring her wind up, it worked ok but not long term. Rylee wouldn’t stop crying and was always irritable.
After Chiropractic care, I noticed a difference after her first treatment, the crying and reflux stopped instantly and has not returned since. I recommend this treatment to anyone having problems and I will be taking the next one from birth.

“Able To Cope Better”
Since the age of 7/8 Benjamin had continual headaches daily. They were getting worse and more frequent. We gave him Pamol and disprin, which mostly only helped to relieve his pain and stress, they didn’t get rid of the headache.
Benjamin started Chiropractic care at 12 years old and has been able to enjoy life ever since as his headaches have reduced. He is a lot more open and outgoing and able to cope a little better with schoolwork and stress in everyday life and has better coordination.

“It Was Dramatic”
Hinewai was not sleeping and obviously in pain. As all new parents we know sleep deprivation can be very disrupting for the whole family. She managed to keep three adults stressed out! She wasn’t sick but couldn’t settle to sleep.
After starting Chiropractic care, it was dramatic! After 3 months of no sleep, one session with John and she was asleep before we left. Four sessions and she was a totally different child! I always recommend Chiropractic care to other parents with unsettled babies.

“He Got Up And Walked Well”
Caillor had a turned in foot and was unable to walk. Both sons were born with ‘club’ foot. The eldest had traditional treatment with calipers and ever since, needs regular hip adjustments. We didn’t want to repeat that experience. We left Caillor’s foot problem until he was a year old. He was obviously ready to walk but couldn’t. He kept falling over. We brought Caillor to John who performed a hip adjustment on Caillor – age 12 months. Caillor cried a lot. We put him to bed and when he woke we sat him in the middle of the floor. He got up and walked well – no holding on to furniture or anyone. We are so sad we used traditional calipers for Tarron. He now has on-going problems. Caillor doesn’t. His hips are strong and his spine easily adjusted.

“She Is A Much More Content Baby”
Jessica wasn’t sleeping during the day and waking often at night. I couldn’t have her sleeping in our room as her breathing kept us awake.
Since receiving Chiropractic care, she is a much more content baby. She sleeps regularly during the day and is now sleeping 8-10 hours at night. I have her in the same room at night and don’t get woken up with her breathing. She is a happier baby overall. I would recommend Chiropractic checks to my friends and have already encouraged my family to see Funnell Family Chiropractic.

“Did Not Have To Have Grommets”
Tiana had chronic ear infections, resulting in the doctor recommending grommets.
Since receiving Chiropractic care, Tianna has not had an ear infection and did not need to have grommets.

“Improved Her Health”
Ashlie was on lots of antibiotics for continued ear infections and her asthma was on/off. Since Chiropractic care, it has improved Sarah’s health.

Lauren suffered from headaches and was tearful and sensitive. After Chiropractic car the headaches no longer seemed to be a problem. She is becoming a happier, go lucky type of child again. She has less time off school.

" The Wetting Has Stopped"
At 6 years old Tyler was still wetting and had behavioural problems
After 2 Chiropractic treatments the wetting has stopped and the behavior is slowly improving and she is less clumsy. NSA has been an eye opener - we love it!!!

"She Is Very Healthy"
We take Madison to the Chiropractors because we believe it's necessary. She's a very healthy child and misses most flus and illnesses.

"Under Control Now!"
Sam had a problem with soiling his pants at 5 years old. It had been going on for 2 months. Since receiving Chiropractic care, Sam has it under control now with only the occasional accident.
-- J. R. - Ngakuru, Rotorua
"No Medication Necessary"
In the past, I tried Coloxyl drops, prune juice, Microlax Enema's and yet my son, Ethan was still unable to pass bowel motions - it was very distressing. After only seeing the Chiropractor 3 times, Ethan continued to do regular bowel motions with no other medication necessary. I would recommend that all babies are checked by a Chiropractor - it's awesome!
-- M. L. - Rotorua
"A Lot Happier!"
We were at our wits end! Every feed was really hard and Larissa would be very sick everywhere and wouldn't settle during the day. Within a week my husband and I noticed a huge difference in her reflux/colic and were a lot happier. At 2 months, you wouldn't have known that there was anything wrong! I would recommend Chiropractic to all parents! If I were to have any more I would bring my baby within the first few hours/days to be adjusted!
-- C. R. Hamurana, Rotorua
Jarrad was a grizzly kid who always slept on one side. Since receiving Chiropractic care he has improved heaps and sleeps better. He is happier, more alert and relaxed. I will definitely be bringing my other 2 children here.

"Such An Amazing Result!"
We brought our son Max at 2 weeks old for a general check over after a difficult birth (failed Ventouse - then a forceps delivery and due to his shoulder dystocia/stuck shoulder, his collarbone was broken on his way out). Max had been a bit unsettled especially, during the day time and had a really sticky, gunky eye.
The most dramatic result we observed was with Max's eye. John discovered Max had C1 vertebrae out along, with a couple of others and after the gentle movement of that vertebrae we noticed literally overnight Max's eye cleared up and has been clear ever since. Such an amazing result! Now at 5 weeks, a couple of visits to see John later and Max is a happier baby, more able to be awake and content instead of crying all the time. Thank You John!!!

"A Totally Better Baby"
Aidan was an unsettled baby who cried a lot and turned his head one way only. This has been going on for 9 weeks, it put a lot of stress on my partner and I and we were severely sleep deprived and worried. After receiving Chiropractic care, he is a better baby - he sleeps well and wakes up smiling instead of crying. He feeds well as he turns from side to side easily now. Just a totally better baby! He's relaxed, alert but most of all HAPPY! I would recommend Funnell Family Chiropractic to all!!!
-- T. D. - Lynmore, Rotorua
"It Changed Our Lives!"
I was such a cynic. I vowed I'd never go near a Chiropractors but out of sheer desperation having tried other strategies (including diet change/medication/variations in bassinets/massage etc. etc.) I came along to a Chiropractic Talk. I decided I had nothing to lose - it changed our lives!!! I wish I had gone 5 months ago!!! Luke had reflux, was VERY unsettled, screamed a lot and not sleeping much, it was exhausting. He was diagnosed with silent reflux and the Doctor gave him Gaviscon but he got constipated and then needed a laxative, then we tried Losec - there was minimal improvement. Our GP finally referred us to your office. Luke had 3 subluxations and after 2 weeks of adjustments, Luke started sleeping 8 hours a night, after another 2 weeks 12 hours a night. We are both really enjoying our gorgeous son. We can now sit down with him and relax and even eat dinner together without one of us pacing the floor all evening and well into the night. Luke is a much, much happier, calmer baby (and so are we). Baby number 2 will be going to the Chiropractors on our way home from the hospital!

"Experience The Wonders Of Relief"
My grandson Rashard, has had the opportunity at this stage of his life to experience the wonders of relief. I encourage all mothers to have the similar experience that we have had with our child/grandchild having Chiropractic adjustments. Keep up the awesome work towards making it a better world for our next generation.
