Chiropractic and Remedial Massage Clinic, Fairfield
Dr Elena Bacash
Chiropractor, Director Fairfield Wellness
The vision for Fairfield Wellness has been incubating for 15 years at least. It was to create a beautiful and uplifting environment where I could practice chiropractic, teach yoga and meditation and work with like-minded practitioners. More importantly I wanted to create a space for a community of people to come together, who share a common vision for health and wellbeing, and the evolution of consciousness (I know it sounds intense!). Actually, I really just wanted to have a place where I could hang out with my friends and people I really like!
I became involved in yoga 20 years ago after feeling a deep urge to learn meditation. I was challenged by some of these new yoga concepts as I had previously studied Science at the University of Melbourne. However, I was able to reconcile these challenges, so I then trained to become a Gita Hatha yoga teacher (900 hours of training). Through yoga I learnt that the spine and the nervous system are the channel through which consciousness expands - that expansion means we have greater awareness about ourselves and our environment. This then led me to chiropractic because of its focus on alignment and spinal adjustments and because it is based on the philosophy that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating system. In 2014 I joined the Meditation Association of Australia as well as completing studies in Health Coaching. As of 2021 I am studying my Masters in Acupuncture at RMIT.
Elena is also a certified practitioner of the Pregnancy Webster Technique, treating women with pelvic pain and pelvic instability. The Webster Technique balances the sacrum and sacroiliac joints as well as ligaments around the pelvis during pregnancy.
‘The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ sacroiliac joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.’ (ICPA- International Chiropractic Paediatric Association) A study published in the July/August 2002 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) shows that the "Webster Technique" used to manage the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint.
