Your Local Chiropractor in Newcastle

Here at Transitions Chiropractic + Massage Newcastle we believe that you are capable of anything! We are here because at some stage everybody needs a helping hand. Pain and suffering are not part of your genetic blueprint and true health comes from within. Our goal is to check and adjust your spine and body to unlock any interference to your nervous system. Maximising your body’s symmetry and mobility will help you to live better.

We see you as the individual, not just pain or dysfunction. Whether your a busy mum, running your company, climbing the corporate ladder or even crawling around the floor, Chiropractic can work for you. By combining a physical examination and NASA developed Myovision technology (sEMG & Thermography), we accurately identify any sites of nerve interference. We use precise manual adjusting techniques to improve the way you move and feel. We enhance the balance of your body from the inside out to help your body heal itself, treating the cause not the symptom. To help you to adapt and function at your best, in the most efficient, pain free and powerful way possible.

My name is James Staciwa (Sta-chee-va) and together with my wife Merissa, we opened Transitions Chiropractic Newcastle September 9th 2013. I have been practising Chiropractic in Newcastle for 16 years however, it took some time to convince my American wife to call Newcastle, Australia home… Newcastle is home especially since the birth of our son, Cain, in 2014 and our daughter, Peyton, in 2016. Along with Merissa, our highly skilled and caring support staff is ready to help you. Massage is provided at our office by Embracing Natural Therapies. We believe in getting people actively involved in their community, that is why we also offer Postural Awareness Sessions and Healthy Spine talks with Merissa.


Outside of Chiropractic, first and foremost I am a loving husband and father. I believe that every generation should live better than the last and I choose to create a legacy and a lifestyle that I can pass on to my amazing family. Additionally, I love pushing the limits and seeing just how far and fast I can push my own body. I have been an avid amateur athlete since 2009 and have 8 Ironman finishes to my name. As a result of this, I believe that chiropractic works brilliantly for the whole family! Whether it was adjusting Merissa through pregnancy or checking Cain and Peyton after one of their many falls, I’ll always check their body to help in anyway I can. Likewise, my own Chiropractor regularly checks me allowing me to run, ride, swim, work and play at my best.
