Stephen Roughan

Dr. Roughan, DC, originally from New Zealand,  moved to Ireland from Christchurch in 2008. He graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic  in 2003, and has since worked in Christchurch and Ireland. Apart from general Chiropractic, Dr. Roughan's particular area of expertise is Applied Kinesiology. By using muscle testing as an indicator tool, the Applied Kinesiologist re- veals imbalances in the body's structural, chemical or emotional factors, and identifies how well a person's body is functioning. It also allows the body to specify its preferences for treatment, and to prioritise certain issues or problems. In general, the doctor finds a muscle that tests weak and at- tempts to determine what is causing the muscle to function ineffectively. The practitioner then evaluates and applies the therapy that will cause the muscle to test strong and best help the patient. Dr Roughan played rugby until recently, and is a keen cricketer!
