Dr Yarun and team absolutely amazing. Taking my father for siatica pain. He explained the cause instead of just treating the symptoms. He knows what he is doing. They have all the new facilities like class 4 hot laser aswell. Highly recommend them…

Absolutely amazing chiropractor! I can’t speak highly enough about my experience. I was initially leery of chiropractic but after reading many reviews, I took the chance and have not regretted it, as the relief from neck and back pain has been wonderful. Dr. Yaron has a truly kind and compassionate approach to his patients, and he and his staff go over and above to take care of them. Thank you Dr. Yaron!

I have been a patient of Hinterland Chiropractic since 2008 and I couldn’t rave more highly about their customer service, spinal care and health and wellness education. My young children have also been under the care of Dr Peter Hobson since they were babies and it truly is a family based care centre. I especially like the weekly Half Hour to Health session where I can learn more about taking care of mine and my family’s health.

I have been a patient at Hinterland Chiropractic since 2010, I have gained increased flexibility and reduction in minor pain due to education in good posture, specific exercises and regular realignments. I have been so happy with the results that I even referred family members to the same clinic.

I have been attending Dr Peter Hobson’s Hinterland Chiropractic Centre at Nerang since 2004. Through regular chiropractic treatment, I enjoy a high level of wellness. Dr Hobson is dedicated to educating the community on the benefits of chiropractic through his weekly Optimal Health University™ Newsletters on health and wellbeing subjects, as well as regular in-house workshops that are most informative and life-changing for many. All of the staff at Hinterland Chiropractic are extremely professional, caring and helpful. The holistic, supportive and friendly approach engenders an environment of trust in the treatment being delivered. The service offered is very affordable and a wise investment in good health and I can highly recommend a visit to Hinterland Chiropractic Centre for anyone wanting to achieve this. Sue E

First came to see peter here a year ago with a minor lower back complaint. He not only made things better, but also took the time to do xrays and point out other problems, without the harassment of coming back. He and his staff always make me relaxed and bring a smile to my face.

I have been a patient for over a year at Hinterland Chiropractic and have found not only my back pain has gone I feel much healthier and rarely do I get sick. I have lived in various states in Australia over the years gone by and have found the Chiropractors excellent in every way and nothing is a problem for their staff who are very kind and helpful

I’ve been working with Peter from Hinterland Chiropractic for close to a month now and the results have exceeded my expectations. I am a veteran of several major injuries and a lifetime of high impact physical labour and recreation. Currently I’m sleeping without pain, waking refreshed and generally feeling more energised. Following the information provided and the care I’m increasing my flexibility and and range of movement. I’m extremely happy with the care, am truly excited about the immediate results and look forward to the long term benefits of our on going relationship.

Bianca Nuss - Gold Coast Bianca Nuss Star SmallMarch 23, 2018

I have been receiving chiropractic care for just over 8 years now. During my maternity leave I even had the privilege of working as a Chiropractic Assistant which allowed to further understand the benefits of receiving regular chiropractic adjustments. My daughter has been adjustment since 12 weeks old with amazing results after just two adjustments with concerns the doctor told us she would ‘grow out of’ over the next year. Dr Peter has been my 5th Chiropractor now and am so happy! After being told by my dentist that I would need MAJOR surgery to my jaw, Dr Peter has been able to alleviate my pain and discomfort and has helped me fix my overall posture, physical health and my outlook on life and meditation. He is knowledgeable, patient and incredibly passionate about life. My family and even parents are now under his regular care and as my 3 year old always chants there and back to our appointment; “Dr Peter, makes you better!” Thank-you to the entire team at Hinterland Chiropractic. You are always smiling, helpful and professional. We always enjoy our visits and look forward to our next appointment.

Dr Peter Hobson has been treating my back injury in his Gold Coast Chiropractic clinic at the end of July. His help have change my life, from being immobilised to going dancing in 2 weeks time. Peter comes highly recommended for his skills, professionalism and his great attitude. Other very important factor is, that Dr Peter takes the time to help you discover what the long-term cause of your back pain is, instead of simply just treating the symptoms. Dr. Peter Hobson and his staff are the most competent and caring healthcare professionals I know. Thanks Peter!

Rebecca Merritt - Gold Coast Rebecca Merritt Star SmallMarch 20, 2018

I have now been a patient at Hinterland Chiropractic for 1 1/2 years. When I first arrived I was in a lot of pain and could not see the end to my headaches, migraines and back pain. It has now been a year since I took my last painkiller 🙂 I have no headaches, no migraines and I can now get up in the morning and look forward to a pain free day. Thanks guys!!!

I could not be without my regular visits to Hinterland Chiropractic. By keeping my spine in the best possible alignment, I have much reduced pain and I am able to physically perform at an optimum level for my age. Thanks very much to the Team at Hinterland Chiropractic.

I am a patient of Dr. Ryan’s at Hinterland Chiropractic. Since commencing care, I have experienced an increase of energy, better digestion and my sleeping patterns have improved drastically!!! Dr. Ryan has educated me on the importance of spinal care and ways I can improve my everyday life. Coming to see Dr. Ryan is a highlight in my week, and I always look forward to my visit at Hinterland Chiropractic.

Being hairdressing for 20 years can give you some back pain. Dr Yaron is a magician!!! No more pains…he is my angel!

Ian Taylor - Gold Coast Ian Taylor Star SmallMarch 16, 2018

After more than 15 years visiting various Doctors, Physio Therapists, Massage Therapists and Alternative Medical clinics in search of some relief for my constant back pain, a friend of mine recommended Hinterland Chiropractic. I have found them to be extremely professional with great advice, clear explanations and continued care that exceeds my expectations. Finally I have a solution that is helping me to achieve a healthy, balanced life. Thank you Dr Hobson!

Tim Stone - Gold Coast Tim Stone Star SmallMarch 15, 2018

I am a landscaper and have suffered from lower back pain for more than 10 years. I would tweak something and just work around the pain for 1 – 4 weeks at a time before it would settle, this would happen several times a year for this whole time. This has always had an impact on my life, sometimes being almost immobile for a week at a time.

I wouldn’t say I was skeptical of Chiropractors, but I was concerned (scared if I’m honest) about having an area that was already very painful manipulated. Finally around 6 months ago I tweaked something again, but this time the pain was more extreme than usual and after a weak it had not eased at all. Reluctantly, I did some searching and was able to secure an appointment to see Dr Peter. We went through a process of assessment to determine the extent and real location/s of my issues that would manifest into my lower back pain. This process was thorough, and Dr Peter went well beyond what I expected to explain and ensure that I was understanding what my issues were. No adjustments or manipulation was done before Dr Peter had completely reviewed the results of this assessment.

Long story short, my pain was relieved to minor discomfort after around 2 visits. I have not had a re-lapse into my usual cycle since becoming a patient of Dr Peter. He is genuinely focussed on helping me repair the damage caused by my 10 years of ignoring an obvious problem. The whole experience has been quite the opposite of everything that I feared for 10+ years and I only wish I had made an appointment all those years ago instead of living with it for soooo long.

My sincere hope in writing this review, is that it may help alleviate any concern you may have and encourage you to make an appointment with the VERY friendly and helpful team at Hinterland Chiropractic much sooner that I did.

Tanika Stevens - Gold Coast Tanika Stevens Star SmallMarch 14, 2018

When I first came to hinterland chiropractic I had slight back pain as well as I noticed I didn’t stand straight (my pelvis would sit forward making me look pregnant). After my consultation and X-rays it was clear as to why.

I don’t know where I’d be now without Dr Yaron!! Absolutely amazing place to be, with warm welcomes and fantastic adjustments by my main man Dr Yaron

From being told by a neurosurgeon that I needed 2 discs replaced at a cost of $1000,000 to going back the gym after treatment from Yaron without a scalpel in sight.

Before making any decisions regarding your spine that have been already diagnosed go an see these guys.From the receptionists when you come in,they always make your feel welcome and Yaron and Peter two dedicated professionals who work tirelessly in the practice.i can’t recommend this practice enough nothing is to much trouble they are flexible,accommodating, and give you a detailed diagnosis with a treatment plan that we work on.

Brooke Frecklington - Gold Coast Brooke Frecklington Star SmallMarch 12, 2018

Hinterland Chiropractic has been apart of my life for many years now, and I wouldn’t be able to function with out the help Doctor Peter.

I’m a very active person, my job sends me around Australia, that means sleeping in hotel beds, yes I always take my chiropractic pillow but some times you need an adjustment on the road. I can always call Hinterland Chiropractic for any suggestions on who might be good to see while I’m away.Doctor Peter is always happy and positive, he listens to your concerns and helps you in the best way he can.

Bec is always understanding if you need to change an appointment time or date.When you find a good chiropractor you wont want to change.I highly recommend Hinterland Chiropractic.

Margaret Perry - Gold Coast Margaret Perry Star SmallMarch 9, 2018

I got out of my chair on Thursday and immediately felt the pain and discomfort of a pinched nerve, lower back. Off to work after doing a few gentle stretches, then booked in to see Dr Peter. Soooooo lucky to get an appointment. He released my back, sorted out a few other tight spots and sent me off for a walk. My back was tender for a day, still a bit uncomfortable, but I’ll be back next week to re-align that spine. Don’t neglect yourselves, like I did, I am at college in Brisbane and hadn’t been to see the fabulous Dr Peter for a few months… bad idea! The awesome Dr Peter has been keeping me on the straight and narrow for years. Missed seeing him, and won’t do that again! Thank Becs and Peter, you are the greatest team!

FAQ about Massage Therapy

I’ve never had a massage before. What should I expect?

We start our sessions by taking a few minutes to talk to our clients. We like to find out what your experience with massage has been, your general likes/dislikes, any relevant medical history and what your goals are for the session as well as any concerns or questions you may have. After this is done our therapists will leave the room giving you complete privacy to undress and get on the table.

The table will be draped with sheets and a blanket and you will be completely covered up. Once our therapist returns to the room we will see if you are comfortable enough and, if so, commence working. While they are working the towels will be moved covering or exposing the area of the body that we need to work. At no point, will you ever be more exposed than you would be in, say, a swimsuit. The pressure we use can ALWAYS be adjusted.

So if you want less or more pressure… just ask! Likewise we can always add or remove a towel as your body temperature dictates. At some point during the session you will need to roll over. At this point we will hold the towels up for you so that you can roll over with complete modesty.

When your session is through our therapists will again leave the room allowing you to take a few more moments to breathe and take in the work and then to slowly get off the table and get dressed.

Do I need to be completely naked?

Yes and no. Ideally it is preferred that you would remove most of your clothing so to allow us easy access to all the areas of your body that will be worked on. However, as said before: your comfort level is the most important thing. So if you are more comfortable leaving something on, just say or do so and our techniques can be modified to accommodate you.

There are many styles of massage that don’t require the client to remove any clothing at all. Some of these styles can be incorporated into your session if need be.

I’ve had massage before and to be honest, I wasn’t all that?

Massage isn’t just about the kind of service you are receiving. Equally, if not more so, important is whom you are receiving the service from. Every massage therapist has a different touch and a different way of perceiving your needs while you are on the table. Sometimes it takes a little while until you find a therapist with whom you click.

It is very important to remember, however, that while a therapist can and often does intuit a lot while working on you, he or she is not a mind reader and each client is different from the next. Things like temperature, music or pressure can make or break your experience of the service you received but often you need to verbally express your needs to get exactly what you want.

If you’ve had a massage in the past and were left disappointed because, for example, you didn’t feel like the therapist worked long enough on your neck, simply mention this at your next massage by saying: “I really love having your neck worked on. I had a massage before that I found pretty disappointing because he/she didn’t pay enough attention there.” I guarantee this therapist will get the hint!

Does massage hurt?

Sometimes it is necessary to experience what is described as “the good hurt” when really working on an area of the body that you have been experiencing pain or achiness in. This is that feeling you get when having the area deeply worked on is in fact uncomfortable, but it feels good to you to have it stimulated. Usually if you are experiencing pain somewhere, it does in fact hurt a little too really remove the tension and adhesions that are causing the pain. This is normal and everyone has a different idea of where this level is. However, not everyone wants to get this out of a massage.

You should NEVER “suffer” through something you consider painful or uncomfortable unless that is the kind of work you are looking for. If too much pressure is being used simply ask your therapist to “go a little easier there.” All in all your massage should be a pleasant, comfortable experience.

Should I be quiet during our massage, or can I talk?

Whichever you prefer. There is no rule that says you have to remain quiet during a massage nor is there one that says you have to make small talk with your therapist. Some people find it impossible to relax while chatting and prefer to focus on the massage or possibly even drift off to sleep a little.

Others are perfectly capable of relaxing while chatting and enjoy the conversation. Some people chat a little here and there and remain quiet for the rest of the session. All are perfectly acceptable. Our rule as a therapist is that we minimize conversation but if the client on our table does, we are happy to converse with you. You can usually tell when the person is done talking and wants to remain quiet for a bit. It is never rude to remain quiet the whole time. I’m not there to be entertained; we are there to give you great bodywork!

I’d really like a massage, but I’m uncomfortable with our body. I’m not sure if I want a stranger seeing me unclothed.

First of all you will remain mostly covered during your session. Despite this however it is important to realize that a massage therapist sees many, many people of many different shapes and sizes. As a professional therapist a person’s body is just another body and, if anything, is appreciated for its uniqueness. You should feel no less comfortable during your session than you would at a doctor’s office, and hopefully after a few minutes much, much more comfortable!

If you are still not convinced, express your concerns to your therapist. If their words don’t make you feel more comfortable then you can always “ease in” to being unclothed by keeping some of your clothes on for the first few sessions until an appropriate comfort and trust level is established.

What do I do if I’m uncomfortable during our session?

Speak up! Every client is different from the next. While one person may find the room temperature perfect, the very next person may find it too warm or cold. It is important to express your needs verbally in order to get the most out of your session.

It is never a problem to layer another towel on the table, take one off, turn the music down or use more or less pressure. It would be worse to find out after the fact that a client was freezing the whole time and never said anything!

The music playing during our massage was really annoying me, can I ask for our therapist to change it?

Of course! People react very differently to music. You may find a particular kind very annoying, which would greatly change your perception of the service you received. Some people are so stimulated all day long that they actually prefer no music at all.

I’m not in pain, why should I get a massage?

Many people use massage to treat chronic or acute pain issues, but ideally massage should be viewed as a preventative part of your wellness routine. If your body feels good, that’s great, but it is important to KEEP yourself feeling well and balanced. Remember, massage doesn’t just treat the muscles. It also has many other emotional and physical benefits.

How often should I get a massage?

Ultimately this depends on what your lifestyle, schedule and budget will allow. You should come up with a schedule that realistically fits in to what your personal needs are. Everyone uses their bodies differently and therefore needs a different level of care.

If you are dealing with chronic pain issues, are an avid athlete, or have high levels of stress in your life then weekly or bi-weekly sessions are most ideal. If you are in good health, experience very little pain and are just seeking wellness maintenance then every two to four weeks would be fine.

The important thing is to set up a regular schedule, whether that means every two weeks or every two months for you. Also, get in the habit of scheduling ahead this way you are less likely to brush of your self-care. It is a real treat to look at your schedule for the week and realize that you have a massage scheduled already!

I think I’m getting a cold, should I cancel our appointment?

Not necessarily. Massage (especially regular massage) gives your immune system a boost and also flushes toxins out of your body making it a great way to help you get over a cold faster. You should be aware; however, that by doing this it may enhance your symptoms as it speeds up the natural progression of the cold. If you think you may or may not be coming down with a cold, you may wake up the next morning to find that you do in fact have a full-blown cold.

This is very normal and you will most likely find that with proper hydration and rest in addition to the massage your cold will go away much more quickly than usual. There are plenty of tissues lying around for runny noses and I can be sure not to keep you faced down too long if you are having trouble breathing. That being said, if you ever feel too sick to leave the house, or your instincts tell you that you need to just sleep then by all means you should cancel your appointment.

What is the difference between a Swedish massage and deep tissue massage?

Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. Deep Tissue massage is a technique that releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on contracted areas, either following or going across the grains of muscles, tendons, and fascia.

What do I do during our session?

In general, nothing. Your job is to simply lie down and relax. At times we will move your arms or legs as necessary, especially for stretching, but it is not necessary to “help” us do this. It is best if you remain as relaxed and passive as possible and allow your therapist to do all the work. If at any point your participation is necessary, we will let you know.

How will I feel after our session?

Once again everyone is different but most people leave the session feeling somewhat disoriented and groggy. This will lift after a little while and you should be left feeling more relaxed and centered. Sometimes you will feel sleepy and relaxed for the rest of the day, other times you may feel energized and renewed. In the case of deep work and pain specific treatment you may feel a little sore the next day before you start to feel the real benefits of the work. This is completely normal and should not alarm you. It is part of the process of unwinding tension patterns and relieving chronic or acute pain. You should always be sure to drink plenty of water following a massage in order to keep your muscles hydrated and to flush out of your body toxins that were released during your massage.

What is a trigger point?

A Trigger Point Therapy is an irritated area in muscle fibers that when compressed may elicit pain or a twitching response. Often pressure applied directly to a point like this for a few moments can allow for much tension to be released in the muscle that contains the trigger point.

What if our massage wasn’t quite what I expected?

We love to know what our clients think of our work. that is the best way we can gauge what it is like for someone to receive a massage from our office. Constructive criticism is always appreciated and can be offered in a non-judgmental and helpful way.

Clear and open communication is a key factor in establishing a rewarding client – therapist relationship and will help us to improve our services to you now and in the future. We welcome all feedback. By the same token, we love to hear what you liked about our work as well!

Our time, as is yours, is very valuable. We require 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel your appointment. If you cancel at the last moment or fail to show up for an appointment we will expect payment for the time that was held aside for your session.

If you fail to show up for appointments, we will either not schedule you in the future, require payment up front, or require a credit card number that will be charged in the event that you again fail to show up for your appointment. Family and personal emergencies are, obviously, a part of life and we do understand extenuating circumstances.
