Emma Paraska

B. Sc (Adv. Genetics and Pharmacology), M. Chiro

Emma graduated from Macquarie University with a Master of Chiropractic in 2006 and has practiced in Scotland, England and Sydney before moving to sunny Brisbane in 2014. Prior to completing her chiropractic qualification she completed a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Sydney in Advanced Genetics and Pharmacology.


Emma is passionate about two things, learning and people. She is always reading and absorbing information. Any thing on health or exercise, neurology, the body or the mind is fascinating, and she loves being able to pass on that information to help people lead healthier, happier lives. She feels extremely lucky that being a chiropractor allows her to help people to give their best. Because a big part of giving your best, is feeling your best.

Emma looks forward to sharing her skills and experience with the Spine Tuning Chiropractic Community. From mums and bubs, athletes and weekend warriors, office and outdoor workers, to those of you who do too little or too much!
