Chiropractor, Author, Speaker, Pillow Designer, Founder of ChiroWorks
My quest began when I was sitting on the edge of my bed one evening, crying. I was 7 or 8 years old at the time.
My parents were selfless, spending their lifesavings to move to Australia, and providing us with many opportunities. But I wasn't happy.
I vividly remember the one thought resounding in my mind. "How can I be happy? How can we all be happy?"
I wanted people to feel good. To be truly happy. I wanted to write a book. I wanted to inspire, empower and enable people to be well and happy. At that time, I didn't know how I could do it. I wasn't special or gifted. But that night, at the end of my bed, the seed was planted.
Over the last 28 years, I’ve come to know what it's like to miss out on life. I’ve experienced the misery of loss, physical pain, mental stress and depressive emotions. I’ve had my fair share of injuries, like a knee injury putting me on the sidelines, and a lower back injury that made working, sitting and sleeping painful. Worst of all, taking care of and playing with my 18 month old daughter was a struggle because bending, carrying, getting off the floor and changing nappies was painful.
I have also been overwhelmed, had sleep issues, drowned myself in negativity, self doubt and self criticism, and at one point in time, lived completely in autopilot. A subconscious state of survival mode, unmotivated to do anything.
Through all that, I’ve come to know how vitally important it is to be healthy, physically. Because if my hardware (body) fails, my software (brain) isn't going to run well either.
I reminisce about my university days. I was training 22-26 hours a week, while taking on full time university (at least 32 contact hours per week), working two part time jobs and maintaining a reasonable social life without falling sick for 5 years! I think, that is definitely one of my proudest achievements!
That, and being in the Australian Badminton Team from 2002-2006, being an Olympic Torch Bearer for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and completing the Standard Chartered Marathon (42.2km) a few years ago with a respectable 3.5 hours with just 3 months of training under my belt.
Which is why, now, in 2020, I'm so happy to be me. To have begun living little Gary's dream - to make an impact and give people the courage and strategies to be well and happy. I am proud to share my life's work, which I've sifted, sorted and separated and now refined into something special I can share with you.
I'm so glad I can do this personally, with my one-on-one clients in the clinic, through face-to-face and online workshops and trainings, and also be able to reach out to everyone around the world, through my online programs, webinars and content.
I look forward to seeing you, Feel Great and Limit Less!

Finest Chiropractor in Singapore
We've been recently informed that we have made the list for Singapore's Finest Chiropractic Hall of Fame! Honoured to be part of a profession that creates massive positive ripples through individuals, families and communities.
12 Best Chiropractic clinics in Singapore.
2019 to present
Being acknowledged on such a list is beyond our wildest imagination. We thrive on giving at least 100% to help our clients achieve their health goals. And we are truly grateful for all our clients who have given us trust, faith, love and believed that they can be the miracle, to begin living a life without limits.
Because that is our belief: That we can all feel great, play big and enjoy life without limits.
To Inspire, Influence and Impact a million people, and their families, to live happy and healthy through my online and offline programs, so they can enjoy life without limits.
We all deserve to have access to basic necessities of food, water, education and health care. That’s why Giving Back is in-built into my business.
It's also why in 2019, I co-authored the book Legacy, with 52 other Change-Makers from all around the world. Our goal is to inspire others how creating a legacy is not about amassing a fortune, but rather how we can create ripples of impact locally and globally, in our day to day lives.
I create these positive impacts by supporting the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The UN’s 17 SDGs (also referred to as ‘The Global Goals’) is a collection of independent but interconnected goals carefully designed to give all of us on our planet a better future.
The goals were created so that businesses, organisations and individuals can collectively combine their power by directing their efforts toward specific global objectives.
If we could all contribute in small meaningful ways, together we could end hunger, poverty, save lives, save animals and even prevent further damage to mother nature.
To practice what I preach, and put money where my mouth is, I have included various SDG’s into my business operations. Through my lifetime partnership with Businesses for Good B1G1, I have created giving stories that fuse my business processes with making a positive impact.
For example, when we get a new client, we automatically plant a tree, give access to health care or education to someone in need. When I receive a testimonial, we give 3 months of e-learning to slum children in India. When someone books us for a speaking event, we give 60 days of access to medical services and sanitary materials in Ethiopia. In other words, every time someone buys from us, we pay it forward and give to someone else.
