Chiropractor Gisborne

Dr Tony Croke – Chiropractor

Dr Tony has completed countless hours of post-graduate training in chiropractic excellence. He is a certified practitioner of Sacro-Occipital Technique, and is skilled in cranial adjusting and other techniques which are often used in the chiropractic care of babies and children.

He has also undertaken courses in Chiropractic Biophysics, Thompson Technique, Activator Methods, Network Spinal Analysis and a range of other chiropractic adjusting techniques. Because of his broad experience, he can adapt his approach to suit the needs of every individual.

Dr Tony was Vice-President of the Chiropractors’ Association in Victoria and a National Board member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia for several years. He is a sought-after speaker at professional development programs for chiropractors, presenting at conferences around Australia and internationally. He was the Victorian Chiropractor of the Year in 2010 and has received many other awards for his services to the profession and public.

Dr Tony’s time out of the office is mainly devoted to his wonderful family: wife Tiffani, and three children, Oliver, Virginia and Monte. Oliver recently graduated as a chiropractor and Virginia is also completing her chiropractic studies at RMIT University in Melbourne. Monte is determined to do something else!

Dr Tony is also an unskilled but enthusiastic surfer and skier.

Tiffani Clingin

Tiffani has been immersed in the study of contented people for many years.  She graduated from RMIT in 1994 with a Bachelor of Social Work and has 6 years of post-graduate training in psychotherapy and family therapy.  She is a Certified Professional Coach and a trainer for the Effectiveness Training Institute of Australia.

Tiffani works with a range of people, all united in their desire for personal fulfilment. She believes that a therapeutic partnership can support us in mobilising the energy we require to progress in life.

Our Practice

Dr Tony and his wife Tiffani have been serving the people of Gisborne and surrounding areas since 1994.

In that time, Liberty has become one of the leading chiropractic centres in Australia. Some of our clients travel from interstate and overseas to receive our care.

She is a qualified naturopath who has worked in a number of clinical settings.  Mia also worked for many years as a photographer (using the creative side of her brain!).

She enjoys sharing her health knowledge and loves working in this caring environment with fun, driven and inspiring people.

Virginia Croke


Virginia is currently studying Chiropractic at RMIT.  She received her first spinal adjustment within minutes of her birth.  Virginia’s experience has given her a deep understanding of the importance of a healthy spine and nerve system and the endless ways it helps her to be her best. In her spare time, Virginia tutors high school students in maths and english.

eponine fynmore

Eponine joined Liberty in March 2017. She moved from Melbourne to the Macedon Ranges to pursue her horse riding, which she has been doing competitively since the age of ten.

Eponine views working at Liberty as a huge privilege. “Everyone involved is constantly striving to improve themselves whilst supporting everyone else on the team,” she says.

Eponine loves getting to know lots of other members of the community. “I didn’t grow up here, so it’s a wonderful thing for me to meet and interact with lots of lovely locals.”
