Dr Jaslin HoodPrinciple Chiropractor
Dr Jaslin Hood is the principal chiropractor at Horizon Chiropractic who has served Mernda, Doreen and surrounding Northern suburbs for over 17yrs.
Dr Jaslin uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Hood takes a 'whole person' approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spine, and Dr. Hood will be able to determine the root of the discomfort and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
Dr Jaslin is a Pediatric titled member with the AICE, and works alongside Board Certified Lactation Consultants to assist with breastfeeding issues. She also regularly supports and advocates for her pregnant patients from conception to birth.
Dr Jaslin has a husband and three children who she enjoys waterskiing and camping with, has played high level netball and recently completed a half marathon.
