DR TIM O'CONNOR - Chiropractor

DR DARRELL SMITH- Chiropractor

Dr Darrell Smith was inspired to become a Chiropractor after witnessing the remarkable benefits of chiropractic care as a young child.  When Dr Darrell's father experienced a remarkable recovery after receiving Chiropractic care for a traumatic spinal injury, he decided that improving other peoples lives through natural Chiropractic health care was the career for him.  Since graduating from a Chiropractic Degree at Phillip Institute of Technology (now RMIT University),  Dr Darrell has since added to his experience working in Chiropractic Clinics in Victoria and Tasmania with further study in Sports Chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology (AK).  Dr Darrell employs his knowledge in these areas along with Activator technique and manual Chiropractic adjustments to improve nervous system function and support the bodies ability to heal itself.


After graduating from the Phillip institute of Technology (now RMIT University) in Melbourne, Dr Liesel Gardener has gained widespread experience working throughout the United Kingdom and Australia, spending a number of years practicing in Ireland before eventually settling in Hobart.  Dr Liesel utilises many techniques including Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), Activator Protocol, and Manual adjustments, with a particular focus on low-force techniques to gently improve the function of the nervous system.  Dr Liesel enjoys helping Hobart families achieve their health goals using a gentle and natural approach.
