Dr Lichia Cheong

Chiropractor B.Sc (BioMed),
B.Sc (Chiro), B.Chiro

I chose to study Biomedical Science at UWA straight out of highschool, as I had always dreamt of being THE person who would find the cure for cancer. It was in my final year of this degree, I thought to myself, the key lies in promoting good health in order to avoid the horrible disease in the first place. This is what led me to study Chiropractic! I completed the five-year double degree course at Murdoch University in Western Australia. 

One of my first amazing Chiropractic experiences came in 2007, where I travelled with a group of fellow Chiropractors to Siliguri, India to provide care to the local communities. We set up field clinics to provide basic medical supplies and chiropractic care to the families in the surrounding villages. I have always lived in the City of Melville, and this inspired me to educate my own community in the importance of spinal health. My passion is to promote healthy lifestyles through education and preventative approaches, and I love nothing more than helping clients discover the benefits of chiropractic care.

I have two adorable sons Oliver and Levi and a cheeky cocker-moodle, Ronny. I love keeping active around Perth and have always played netball. I am a proud and passionate Fremantle Dockers Member and can’t wait to see them finally win a premiership!


Dr Callum Harwood

Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Chiropractic

This is Dr Callum Harwood – he has a keen interest in sports (particularly soccer) as well as families so he’s got everyone covered! 

Don’t let his youthful looks fool you; he graduated back in 2018 and has had great success ever since, treating a wide variety of patients and conditions, from sports-related injuries all the way through to wellness and maintenance care. 

He’s a bit of a clinical/technical whizz and is highly skilled in a multitude of techniques including a range of low force techniques, sports taping and soft tissue release.

Dr Callum chose his profession early after years of asking way too many questions of his family chiropractor, where he’d been adjusted since he was a little boy. As a sports mad teenager he continuously saw the benefits of regular chiropractic care first hand, so the decision was really quite simple!

Dr Callum says, ‘’I love helping people and giving them a better quality of life, where they can experience the best possible outcomes that they can. I believe chiropractic is a great profession to be able to deliver this, so that when our people leave you they can have that feeling of being able to tackle whatever is ahead of them in the day to their best ability and with a big smile.’’


Dr Carly Witt

Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Chiropractic

*** Dr Carly is currently on materity leave – we miss her and hope she is enjoying this magical time!***

I grew up in country Victoria on acreage, where we grew much of our own food and played lots of sport.

My interest in chiropractic emerged when I moved to Perth with my husband, and we began to embrace Perth’s active outdoor lifestyle and take advantage of the great food grown here in WA. I began my Bachelor of Science studies in Victoria and completed my and Bachelor of Chiropractic degree here at Murdoch University.

My husband and I continue to have a passion for natural food and exercise and believe that great physical and mental health requires a holistic approach, including great chiropractic care. Our son, Oliver is growing up enjoying healthy food and loves being outdoors and enjoying nature with his puppy, Higgins.

I am looking forward to meeting new friends here and sharing my skills to help others work towards a healthy and happy lifestyle.
