Dr. Phil Lawson,

Dr. Phil Lawson is a graduate of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in Mt. Wellington, Auckland.


In his words -

"I grew up north of Auckland in a place called Kaukapakapa, but I was born in Canada. I completed all my schooling in New Zealand. In High School I studied heavily into the sciences, and played Basket Ball, Badminton, Rugby and Waterpolo (last but certainly not least).

I have studied at the University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology, the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, and at the Ara Institute of Canterbury. I've worked in many different industries, from manual labor to programming, and bring a wealth of life experience to Advanced Function Chiropractic.

Like all graduates of NZCC, I am certified to care for and maintain the structure of the human body. I place a special emphasis on the health of the neurological system and the spine, however at Advanced Function Chiropractic I help people who have illnesses and injuries in any region of the body.

I have a particular interest in helping everyday citizens overcome health issues and injuries, and providing them with tools they can use to take care of themselves."
