Dr Marili van Heerden decided she wants to be a chiropractor in her final year of school after a 4th year chiropractic student was the first person to offer her relief of her constant migraines. Having a passion for helping people in pain, medicine and an interest in holistic health, she realised that chiropractic is the only profession suitable to her abilities and personality.
After seven hard-working years she qualified from the University of Johannesburg with her Master’s degree. She proceeded to work at a practice in Boksburg on a locum basis after which she opened the doors of her own practice in the Woodlands Office Park, Woodmead.
Her latest venture is a practice in Fairland, Randburg. Having been part of the local community for over a decade, it was the next logical step. She collaborated with sports massage therapist Sara Prokopowics to open up the new branch of Van Heerden Chiropractic at SP-Sport & Beauty from September 2017.
