Dr Stefan Kohlhoff BSc. M.Chiro. Dip Chiro Paeds. C.Acup

Stefan is the director of Mona Vale Chiropractic and Natural Therapies and has been in private practice as a chiropractor for more than 20 years. He has also lectured for a combined 10 years at Macquarie University and The College of Complementary Medicine. 

Stefan has completed qualifications at Sydney, Macquarie and New South Wales Universities. On graduation, he was awarded the University medal "Clinician of the Year". 
An interest in the benefits of Acupuncture saw Stefan commit to a further year in the study of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Stefan went on to serve several years on the executive committee of the Chiropractic Alumni body eventually in the office of President. He has been an examiner for the Chiropractors' Registration Board assessing new graduates in their final eligibility exams to join the profession.
Having three young children encouraged Stefan to pursue his long-held interest in paediatric chiropractic care. Stefan is one of the few chiropractors with postgraduate paediatric qualifications. He graduated first place in NSW and second place nationally in the 2-year Diplomate of Chiropractic Paediatrics Program and in early 2016 accepted the position as Vice President of the Australian College of Chiropractic Paediatrics.

Stefan’s passion is to provide Holistic Care Tailored for Families. His adult patients receive an entirely personalised program of care which may involve muscle releases, gentle spinal correction, techniques utilising kinesiology, acupuncture and strategic nutritional supplementation. For our younger patients, Stefan provides age appropriate testing, tracking developmental milestones and gentle techniques are specifically chosen to suit your child’s size and condition.
