In loving memory of Julie Whittaker 1960 - 2019

Co-Director and Practice Manager

On Monday 27th May, Julie sadly died after a long but bravely fought battle with cancer. She passed peacefully with her family at her side.

It is safe to say that she is a massive loss to all who knew her, and she will be sorely missed. She was a beloved mother, wife, grandma, daughter, sister, auntie, friend and colleague. She had a fantastic personality and loved all of the patients and friends that she met through the practice and outside of work.

Her legacy lives on and we will all remember Julie and her infectious laugh and enthusiasm for life.



Julie was co-owner and Practice Manager of Wellness Centre Newcastle and had boundless energy and commitment for educating the community of the importance of ongoing Wellness Care. 

After opening the practice in 2005, Julie's commitment for Wellness care never faltered.  

Julie’s professional background began in insurance and then banking.

Her initial involvement with Chiropractic and Osteopathy began in the 1990’s, when a friend recommended that she consulted a Chiropractor for migraine headaches – she had suffered with these for a number of years.

After several adjustments, she was astounded, not only by the difference it had made to her migraines, but to the quality of her in her life in general.

Very soon Julie’s family members became patients and personally experienced the benefits of improved health and wellness, that regular Chiropractic and Osteopathic care made for them.

Julie valued everyone who puts their trust in our team and appreciates the fantastic compliment it is to us all, when a patient recommends family members or friends to the Centre for care.

She believed that EVERY patient should experience great customer service and know that they are listened to and supported at EVERY visit. She truly believed that everyone can make a big difference to their own health and wellness in general, if they are guided and encouraged to be the best they can.
