Expert Healthcare

The Dorsi Method encompasses many techniques from the worlds of Chiropractic, Medical Acupuncture, Herbalism, Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine. Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has spent over two decades bringing together this unique blend so that you can be safe in the knowledge that we will be using the most up to date methods to correct your problems.

We do not treat everyone the same, each patient is given a detailed consultation and examination, following which we will discuss your options and let you decide what route is right for you. From this point you will be assigned two practitioners that will work with you one-to-one and sometimes even at the same time. The practitioners and the techniques they use will be carefully paired with you and your health concerns. We will re-evaluate you regularly and give you advice and support on what to do at home, work and play.

Your Dorsi experience will be unique to you!

  • Detailed Consultation & Examination

  • A team of experts working on your care

  • Treatment programmes as individual as you are.
