Dr Brian’s passion for health and fitness stemmed early in his years competing in various sports such as basketball, volleyball, athletics and swimming at club and at university levels.

Read more about Dr Brian »

He completed his Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Movement with studies focusing on biomechanics, rehabilitation, exercise prescription and nutrition. He has over 10 years experience as a fitness advisor and personal trainer working in various fitness centres around Melbourne.

In this time he furthered his studies in chiropractic care gaining a double degree in clinical science and chiropractic science. In his eight years of full-time study, Brian covered professional courses including anatomy, physiology, radiology, pathology, diagnosis and other sciences but he lists biomechanics, radiology, neurology and clinical skills among his favourites

After graduating from RMIT University he worked in various chiropractic clinics around Melbourne before settling in Point Cook. “Each year,” continues Brian, “I enjoy attending various seminars and workshops to keep up with the latest in research and developments in the chiropractic profession.”

There is a strong sense of community in our practice. As a local resident of Point Cook himself of over 15 years, he has seen the area blossom and has enjoyed being a source of quality natural health care over the years.

He has special interest in sports chiropractic as well as paediatric chiropractic and takes great joy in assisting these groups. He has attained advanced training in sports chiropractic gaining his International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma which allows him to treat at international sporting events such as the Olympic Games and World Games. He has completed advanced studies in paediatric chiropractic.

“We love sceptics,” says Brian. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.”

Brian is married to Dr Fabiola, who has many roles at the practice. They work tremendously well as a team and their patients really appreciate the personal attention they receive at the practice. Brian and Fabiola are great proponents of healthy living and when not joyfully caring for their patients, they can often be found exercising at the local gym, jogging in the streets or walking their dog. They understand that health is a lifestyle choice.

Dr Fabiola strives to take her patients well beyond pain relief and toward reaching their fullest health potential. She is passionate about providing the best quality chiropractic care for families from newborns to the elderly. Dr Fabiola performs a variety of techniques including low force methods (Activator/Drop piece), sacro occipital yechnique (SOT), diversified and gonstead spinal adjustments, mobilisations, specific rehabilitation exercises, clinical pilates, dry needling, deep tissue release techniques (myofascial release, cross friction and trigger point therapy).

Dr Fabiola has chosen to devote her life to assisting people with their health and performance through chiropractic and health education. This passion to contribute has stemmed over a number of years where she worked as a remedial massage therapist.

In 2012 Fabiola took part in a charity organisation (International Children’s Care Australia) where they volunteered their time in Cambodia to give chiropractic care to orphanages and families in villages. That experience further cemented her desire to serve others. As a member of the CAA (Chiropractic Association of Australia) she is part of an ongoing learning environment being presented with new modalities and learning opportunities to strengthen her understanding of chiropractic and deliver the best care possible.

Dr Fabiola is continually furthering her knowledge to stay up to date with the latest treatment techniques and has completed her post-graduate studies in Sports Chiropractic. Dr Fabiola is married to Dr Brian Resurreccion who is also a Chiropractor and also works in the same clinics. When she is not in the office, she enjoys spending as much time as she can with her two young children and her husband. She enjoys walking her dog and getting outside of her comfort zone. This includes pushing herself physically with strength training, Crossfit, boxing and weekend yoga.

As a chiropractor, she takes an all-natural approach to parenting. Healthy eating and exercising regularly allows Dr. Fabiola to maintain balance in her life. In pursuit of her native roots from Nicaragua, Central America Dr Fabiola decided to create an activewear brand called VIDAACTIV which translates to “Life Active” in Spanish. She lives by her mantra “Viva la vida!” (Live your life!) Areas of Interest: women’s health, pilates and yoga, musculoskeletal complaints, sports injury management, injury rehabilitation and improving sports performance, posture and ergonomics, and chronic pain.

Point Cook & South Yarra Locations

From a young age, Dr Atiida developed a great passion for healthcare and fascination of the human body as her family were healthcare professionals.

Read more about Atiida »

Embarking on a journey to be a chiropractor was a natural decision and she completed her five year double degree at RMIT.

In her earlier years, Dr Atiida experienced multiple sporting injuries as a netball and badminton player. This lead to numerous procedures and surgeries over the ensuing years. This in turn sparked her curiosity into rehabilitation protocols and injury management and prevention. She delved deep into learning what strategies achieve efficient and effective recovery. Her other key interests are women’s health, posture and ergonomics, nutrition and pain management.

Her approach to practice is holistic care and she treats with various techniques, including soft tissue, low force, taping, cupping, dry needling, manual therapy and exercise prescription. She is very passionate about her patients and pays close attention on how to tailor a unique and specific chiropractic experience for her patients to ensure they achieve their best health outcomes. Outside of the clinic Dr Atiida loves to spend her time snuggling up with her puppy, hiking, cooking, yoga and spending time at the beach.

Dr Tyler photo

Dr Tyler Loxley, Chiropractor

Point Cook Location

Dr Tyler relocated from the Sunshine Coast in Southeast Queensland to follow his childhood dream of becoming a chiropractor.

Read more about Tyler »

After spending a large majority of his teenage life playing soccer at a high level he experienced many of the issues most growing athletes do. After a suggestion from a family friend, he saw a chiropractor for a groin injury that was not subsiding. The impressive technique and effective treatment of this injury planted the seed into his subconscious and over the years this grew into an overwhelming passion.

After showing interest in the New Zealand College of Chiropractic (NZCC) at the age of 14 he was accepted and the plan was set in stone. Due to unforeseen circumstances this plan never came to fruition. Disappointed, he gathered his wits and applied for the Melbourne-based chiropractic course at RMIT. Five years and a gap year later he graduated at the tail-end of 2019 with a Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Science (Chiropractic).

Dr Tyler’s primary focus is on the prevention and maintenance of chronic posture-related issues. He believes in a thorough understanding of the importance of posture in combination with chiropractic treatment and muscle rehabilitation. He has acquired the most up-to-date techniques based on what current research indicates are the most effective.

Musculoskeletal issues are a strong suit for all chiropractors and Dr. Tyler is no exception to this fact. His goals are to improve function to accommodate to patient’s goals, reduce pain to improve quality of life, and prevent further injuries through patient education in everyday biomechanics. When he’s not working, Tyler has a strong desire to socialise and spend time around the people he loves. He has a passion for learning and always striving to be the best version of himself.

Dr Tyler is available for consultations at our Point Cook clinic on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
