Dr Debbie Cerva is a South African born Chiropractor, who graduated from The University of Johannesburg in 2007. She has succeeded in intertwining her love for travel with and Chiropractic through attending worldwide Chiropractic conferences. This has enhanced her understanding, continued her development, kept her passionately aligned and connected to the purpose of educating as many people as possible on the benefits and true meaning of Chiropractic.

Chiropractic detects and corrects nerve interference, created through vertebral alignment, restoring control to the master controller of the body, the nervous system.

Debbie has been fortunate enough to work alongside experienced, focused and involved Chiropractors, as well as actively building, owning and being the Principle Chiropractor of her own practice in Gauteng, and Cape Town, South Africa. Her travels from Spain to Malaysia, Germany to Scotland, (more recently the Netherlands), involved skill acquirement on the Thompson Technique, Activator method, Sacral Occipital technique, Advanced Biostructural Correction and Diversified Technique. Personal growth is an ongoing journey and part of her internal value structure.

“I never found Chiropractic through a miracle, but Chiropractic keeps me on my toes, each patient brings me something new and exciting to deal with! Chiropractic alongside self-discipline saved me from spinal surgery in 2017 and returned me back to the weight training I love. Chiropractic is my go-to, my first protocol because I am so passionate and believe so deeply in this outcome-based profession. It forms part of the way I look after my health. I am so happy to be able to work with my passion”.

Debbie has practised extensively with babies, pregnant mothers, children and sportsmen; she is passionate about the “whole person approach” of full spinal adjustments. She believes in a practical application to maintaining posture, owning stress, awareness of body and mind through movement, but most importantly the specificity of individuality.

“I am open-minded, with the primary goal to find the cause and correct it”.


Thank you for guiding me and challenging me to face my pain. I appreciate the explanations and encouragement on my journey from deeply frustrating pain towards a buoyant mindfulness of my posture and the intricacies of my body.

You have helped me towards a deeper listening to and respect for my own ability to become a part of the realignment and healing of my body. I have growth mentally and I have found physical healing whilst under your care. Thank you for teaching and encouraging me.

Dr Debbie has a remarkable gift of making an accurate diagnosis and then applying appropriate treatment.

Her treatment keeps my vertigo problem, which had me totally debilitated, under control allowing me to continue with a normal life.

Debbie saved me! I was 38 weeks pregnant and in a lot of pain, my lower back was killing me. She did a few adjustments that prepped my body and then just a little tug on my leg and I felt my back magically align, the pain was gone.

She is very talented, professional and efficient.

Starting my journey as a first time mom living abroad away from my family it was of great importance to me that I had a network of support during my pregnancy. I was critical in the professionals I chose for this journey to make sure they supported my birthing plan.

Debbie formed one of the main pillars in this support system as she did not just support me physically but also emotionally to realize my ideal birthing plan. Debbie’s Chiropractic skills, professionalism and personalized approach is why both me and my now 7 month old baby are still making use of her service.

I cannot recommend her enough!

Dr Debbie has been brilliant in sorting out my running injuries as well as general body maintenance and alignment! She is such a positive, knowledgeable and energetic lady, and so obviously passionate about what she does!

I’ve taken both my daughters (age 10 and 12) to see her too and my eldest daughter, who was having trouble with headaches, hasn’t had a single one since her first visit!!

I really do feel that seeing Dr Debbie, even without a specific ailment, is such an amazing, non invasive way of taking responsibility for your health and I’ll recommend her to anyone that will listen.

Thanks for looking after my family Dr. D

After a traumatic natural birth of my baby girl it was recommended that I see a baby chiropractor. I was sceptical but thought “hey why not” and I’m so glad we found Dr Debbie. Her friendly, calm and caring nature was infectious and i was always at ease while she gentle worked on Juniper.

She helped my little girl so much with her alignment, hip rotation, colic and sleep. I would recommend that everyone who has a little person in their lives should take them to see Dr Debbie as she is a life changer. Thank you so much for all you have done for Juniper.

I have been going to Debbie for the past 2 years and I honestly don’t have enough words in my vocabulary to define how amazing she is!!

She has helped my body prepare and heal before and after long haul flights, after countless days of sleeping in the wrong type of mattress or pillow, any stress related tension, she was there helping my body function optimally throughout my pregnancy, as well as after my pregnancy, adjusting and helping not only me but now my baby as well 🙂

Her professionalism, kindness and wisdom are a rarity and I feel soooo lucky and blessed to have met her!!
