Dr Ilias Varlokostas embarked on his chiropractic journey when he observed the remarkable health and lifestyle changes his family and friends gained through chiropractic care. While growing up in Melbourne, he had a special interest in martial arts and experienced first-hand how Chiropractic helped his recovery from minor injuries as well as improved his performance in the sport he loved.
He graduated Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in 2011 and has been practising in practices all over Adelaide to help as many people as possible. He met his wife Dr Jessica Mah in Adelaide, and together they, established Chiropractic Touch in 2014 while working in other practices all over Adelaide to help as many people as possible.
Dr Ilias is passionate about providing corrective and maintenance chiropractic care to people of all walks of life. He recognises the importance of optimal alignment and muscular stabilisation for the spine. He strongly believes that a balance of physical, nutritional and mental wellbeing is the key to achieving optimal health.
Dr Ilias places great importance on continued professional development by regularly attending seminars and keeping up to date with the latest in chiropractic research, exercise and corrective functional training. He strives to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle and receives regular chiropractic care to keep him healthy, well, and functioning at his peak potential. In his spare time, Dr Ilias enjoys keeping active by practicing martial arts and functional training exercises.
Dr Jessica was exposed to chiropractic at the age of 10 when her mother travelled to Australia from Asia for Chiropractic care. Seeing the benefits of how Chiropractic has tremendously changed her mother’s life for the better, she decided to work towards giving others hope by being a chiropractor herself.
Dr Jessica graduated from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Applied Science, and then in 2007 with Masters in Clinical Chiropractic. The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia presented Jessica with the ‘Personal Achievement Award’ in acknowledgement of her outstanding diligence and performance in RMIT chiropractic programme. Since graduating, Jessica has gained considerable experience practising in Victoria & South Australia. While working in other practices across Adelaide, Jessica’s passion in caring and helping others to regain health through chiropractic moved her to start a practice.
Dr Jessica and Dr Ilias decided to embark on a joint venture and start a practice together in 2014 as they both had the same passion and goals in giving hope and seeing the very best in people for their health. As a husband and wife team at Chiropractic Touch they are passionate about adjusting and restoring joint health and movement to people of all ages and walks of life.
Jessica has a special interest in extremity adjusting (shoulder, elbow, hands, knees and feet) and thoroughly enjoys seeing her patients achieve their optimal health and function with chiropractic adjustments. She is an active sportswoman and has participated in competitive martial arts from a young age, achieving her black belt at only seventeen years of age. Having experienced the beneficial effects of chiropractic treatment in her own sport, Jessica is keen to ensure that her patients achieve their full potential in sport, health and wellbeing.
