Skeptic to Chiropractor
Our principle chiropractor David had grown up in a family with a skeptical view to chiropractic.
It was during his final year of schooling that his mother hurt her back so seriously it left her bed ridden. After a long frustrating path consulting many professionals with no results, she turned to the chiropractor as a last resort.
It was the local chiropractor that provided relief and improvements so life could return to normal. This experience inspired David to pursue a career in helping people through chiropractic.

Dr David Diehm
I’m a father of three little girls and a husband to a strong and beautiful wife. Like many parents, I have an inbuilt instinct to protect and raise a healthy family. I feel chiropractic has been able to offer my own family so much over the years and I am passionate about sharing it with your family. After studying for 5 years at Macquarie University in Sydney and completing my Master of Chiropractic, I discovered beautiful Newcastle. As a kid from the country, I appreciate Newcastle’s authentic and relaxed atmosphere. I can’t think of a better place to live, work, play and raise a family.
In our down time we are a family that loves the outdoors and exploring what nature has to offer us. My hobbies include running, hiking, woodworking and photography. Capturing the beauty of mother nature and our iconic region with my camera has become somewhat of a serious hobby. David’s photography can be viewed at daviddiehmphotography.com.au/
Caroline has a background in customer management and natural skin therapy. Caroline welcomes all clients to the centre with her warm smile and a genuine desire to care for you.
As a busy working mum, Caroline knows the importance of maintaining good health and is excited to be working in a team dedicated to assisting our clients to live well.
Caroline and her husband have two beautiful children and are local to the area. They enjoy a healthy outdoor lifestyle and love nothing better than packing up the car for a fun family camping trip. “I love living in a city that has something to offer each day. It is a friendly place and a wonderful environment to raise our family.”
I received my first adjustment when I was just 20 minutes old, and have been supported by regular chiropractic care ever since.
I value a proactive approach to wellness, and am excited to be a part of the team at Family Life Chiropractic. I enjoy being able to play a role in helping our clients to live healthy lifestyles and function at their best.
Originally from Sydney, my background is in retail and floristry. I’ve recently moved to beautiful Newcastle, and I love exploring my new home town – I’m always happy to receive a recommendation for a great local restaurant or spectacular walk! In my spare time, I can be found doing yoga, baking and walking our two miniature schnauzers, Rocket and Dash.
After working in pharmacy for many years I decided to study Remedial Massage as a way to provide personalised health care for my husband who was unwell and to work within the community.
I completed my studies in 2010 after studying at Tafe New England and then studied my Diploma in Remedial Massage at the Australian College of Massage. I have been working as a therapist for the past
ten years. I began my massage career at Tamworth Remedial Massage Centre and also had my own home business.
I am very passionate about my work as a massage therapist and I love being able to help people manage their pain. I see massage as a great alternative treatment for injuries, stress and pain management. Offering clients relief from stress and tension in a friendly and relaxation environment is very important to me.
I offer my clients Remedial and Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Hot Stone, Cupping, Children’s Massage, Relaxation Massage. I am a member of Australian Association of Massage.
As a mother of two wonderful children and wife to my amazing husband living a healthy active life is important to our family and our values. I bring these values to every aspect of my life and my career in Remedial Massage.
Working with people to support their health has been a passion all my life. Being able to provide relief and understanding along with kindness and education is hugely important to me as a Remedial Massage Therapist.
Since 2012 I have had the privilege of working in Newcastle and Hunter regions helping people understand and manage their pain with the goal of providing relief and a better quality of life through Remedial Massage.
I am happy to provide clients with Remedial and Deep tissue massage, Pregnancy Massage, Relaxation Massage, Dry Needling, Sports Massage, Modern Cupping, Hot Stone Therapy Massage and children’s massage treatments. I am a member of Massage and Myotherapy Australia.

Often spotted on outings enjoying the Newcastle lifestyle. Bonsey makes it to most of our community events and considers his jokes quite humerus!
Mr Bone Jangles shares our passion for connecting with people and educating them about spine health. He will often use himself as an example. His favorite time of the year is Halloween. He does gets extremely anxious around dogs. Most importantly he is our constant reminder that you can never take life too seriously. Laughter is the best medicine.
