Dr Suba Maheswaran

DR SUBA MAHESWARAN
Chiropractor – Flagstone

Growing up in Malaysia, Suba has always wanted to drift away from the traditional idea of medicine which is when she discovered chiropractic. She was immediately drawn to the natural healing approach of the body – letting the body do what it needs to do and the importance of listening to it.

She started her chiropractic studies for 2 years in Malaysia, continued her studies in Melbourne, graduating in the year 2018. After working in Sydney and country of South Australia for a couple of years, she decided to move to Brisbane in the early 2023 and has been enjoying being here since.

Suba loves learning – where she regularly attends seminars for it. Her current interest now is SD protocol, in which she is doing some extra studies on it and was hoping to complete some postgrad studies in paediatrics in the near future( another scope that she is really interested on).

When she is not learning, Suba loves blogging, hiking and dessert hunting (loves chocolates)! F45 has been her go-to for staying fit and healthy.
