Dr Shannon Leach (Chiropractor and Acupuncturist)


With over 16 years clinical experience, we are very fortunate to have Dr Shannon Leach join the RCG team. Shannon completed his Bachelor of Applied Science/Bachelor of Chiropractic Science at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2002. Prior to studying chiropractic, Shannon spent four years training as an acupuncturist, which he completed in 1995 and now uses in conjunction with chiropractic care to assist patients to achieve their health goals. After finishing his studies Shannon practiced in a number of clinics in Australia before relocating to the United Kingdom in 2005 for ten years to further his experience and see what Europe had to offer. We are very lucky that he has decided to join our group of experts.



Shannon sees chiropractic care as vital in influencing the muscular, joint and nervous system of the patient, as they provide the basis for a person's wellbeing. He uses a variety of techniques to treat both spinal and peripheral joint conditions including Diversified Adjusting, Thompson Drop-Piece, Sacro-occipital Technique, Activator Adjusting (hand-held instrument), Trigger Point Therapy and Acupuncture.


Shannon is used to seeing patients of a wide range of ages as well as acute and chronic long-term conditions. He focuses on patient education to help them understand their presenting complaints, the underlying cause and how the patient can play an active role in improving their wellbeing.

Shannon is experienced at treating all ages including children and preganant mothers. He has a very gentle approach and offers many different technique options to his patients.


He is a keen traveller and hopes to travel around Europe during his weekends off from clinical practice.


Dr Leach will be available in all three of our practice locations. He is mainly practicing as a Chiropractor in our clinics as we have two other traditional Acupuncturists, but he is happy to do treatment combinations if you request it when booking in advance.
