Chiropractors of the Year
Dr Jeffrey Hannah is a second generation chiropractor, who was born in Toronto, Canada. At 12 years old, his family moved from Vancouver to Iowa for his dad to accept a teaching position at Palmer College of Chiropractic. After attending high school, university (St Ambrose, 2004, valedictorian) and then chiropractic college (Palmer, 2007, salutatorian) all in Davenport, Jeff decided to listen to the “small voice” in his head, which said that he was meant to go elsewhere.
Dr Jeff practised Atlas Orthogonal for five years before attending an Upper Cervical symposium in New Zealand, where he was introduced to the Blair work. Over the next few months, he converted and rebranded the practice to “Atlas Health Australia,” which is currently one of only two Blair Upper Cervical practices on the continent. Over the next few years, Dr Jeff travelled back-and-forth to attend as many seminars as he could in order to complete proficiency, primary and then advanced certification in October 2017.
Dr Jeff instructed the first Blair Upper Cervical seminar in Australia in November 2016, followed by 5 additional seminars plus 2 online training modules in 2017.
Somewhere in the past 10 years, Dr Jeff published The Doctors Who Give No Medicine, which outlines the story of how he got into Upper Cervical in the first place. He also worked as clinical supervisor at Macquarie University, and now as a philosophy instructor and guest speaker at Central Queensland University.
Dr Jeff and Natalie now work together at their office in North Lakes (north Brisbane) to provide highest quality care to people from across Australia searching for the solutions to their health challenges. Dr Jeff is especially grateful for all his mentors, his parents, and for his wife whose unconditional encouragement has allowed them both to experience crazy, challenging and yet wonderful things along the way. When they are’t working, they are probably still out there somewhere running on the trails through Brisbane Forest Park or the Sunshine Coast Hinterland …
