Chiropractor Gisborne

Dr Tony Croke – Chiropractor

Dr Tony has completed countless hours of post-graduate training in chiropractic technique, patient education protocols and communication. He is a certified practitioner of Sacro-Occipital Technique, and is skilled in cranial adjusting techniques, which are often very helpful for babies and children.

He has also undertaken courses in Chiropractic Biophysics, 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 has been the previous Vice-President of the Chiropractors’ Association in Victoria and a National Board member for many years. He is a sought-after speaker at professional development programs for chiropractors, presenting at conferences around Australia.  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 and Virginia are both studying to be chiropractors at RMIT in Melbourne.  Dr Tony has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and he’s an unskilled but enthusiastic surfer.


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 Chiropractic has become one of the leading chiropractic centres in Australia. Some of our clients travel from interstate and overseas to receive our care.

With a fantastic team of support staff and an ongoing commitment to personal and professional development, our office is well known around Australia as one of the finest in the country.

Chris Steffanoni


Chris is a remedial massage therapist with an advanced diploma of sports therapy.  He has a background as an athlete, racing road bikes for more than 15 years. This personal experience underpins Chris’s keen interest in treating endurance athletes. Chris also finds it rewarding to help clients with pain management.

His treatment techniques are broad and include Swedish relaxation massage, joint mobilisation, electrotherapy and corrective exercise prescription.

Mia Gartley

Mia Gartley

Mia lives in Woodend with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, chickens, a great garden and a thriving vegie patch.

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.

Ashleigh Ford


Ashleigh has lived in the Macedon Ranges since she was seven years old. She’s studied event management and hospitality and is known for her friendly nature.

Late last year, Ashleigh suffered a major health set back. Regular chiropractic care taught her that maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system is a key to wellbeing.  Everyone at Liberty was inspired by Ash’s courageous approach to her recovery and this underpinned their decision to offer her a role in the team.

Ashleigh loves seeing a range of people come in to the practice and she especially likes cuddling the super-cute babies.  She is a proud member of the community and is overjoyed to be able to take care of the people at Liberty.
