Health is a journey, not a destination

Our Story

I (Dr Cass) have a long history with chiropractic, initially taking my baby to see a chiropractor, and then after years of our family being under care, I undertook the five year degree in Auckland to become a chiropractor myself.   Following being in practice for 10 years, I completed further studies in Advanced Integrative Functional Medicine (advanced nutrition).  It is a philosophy of mine that we must walk our own talk, and believe that food plays an enormous role in the state of our health, as does exercise, fresh air, quality sleep, mindfulness practice and regular chiropractic care. 

I have known Dr Erana Tupaea since we studied our chiropractic degrees together, and she has completed post-graduate training in sports chiropractic, Sacral-Occipital Technique, paediatrics and more since then.


Chiropractic care is integral to a fully functional and integrated spine and nervous system, and our practitioners are experts in analysing our patients for the nuances that present as roadblocks to great communication between our brains and our bodies.  Removing these areas of dysfunction allow us to fully express the true and complete vitality we were born with, and the overwhelming stressors of our everyday lives often hinder this. 

Know that you are in great hands when you step into our practice.  We are glad you chose us to be on your health journey with you.

Cassandra Fairest

Chiropractor & Director

Hi, I'm Cass, chiropractor, mother of two adult children plus two fur babies, wife to a firefighter and a passionate health and wellness advocate.


I was introduced to chiropractic care after having my first child in 1998, who was subsequently referred to a chiropractor (and graduated as a chiropractor herself in 2023).

After completing my chiropractic studies, Think Kohi Chiropractic was created by myself and two other chiropractors in 2013. I enjoyed being part of that team, and serving our patients in the Orakei, Kohimarama, St Heliers, Mission Bay, Glendowie area and surrounding suburbs for eight years.

2021 encouraged me to follow the underpinning approach I take to wellness, and to create the wholistic and naturally inspired chiropractic practice ‘The Organic Chiropractic Co'. I have recently completed further education in Advanced Integrative Functional Medicine - aka nutritional deficiencies and other causes of underlying health problems such as inflammation or dysfunctional methylation.  In April of 2022, I was voted in as the President of the New Zealand Chiropractors' Association - the first female president in our associations' 100 year history.  When I'm not in practice, I am busy in this role advocating for our profession.


During my studies, Dr Erana Tupaea joined the practice, and I am thrilled to have her as part of the OCC team.  We have Andie, Jordyne and Michaela on the front desk, who are all chiropractic students and are absolutely brilliant, so please contact them at any time should you need.

Erana Tupaea


Erana first became interested in Chiropractic when she was 18 years old. She observed a number of Chiropractors and loved how thorough and specific they were in providing Chiropractic care. She was in awe seeing these patients reach their full potential which is what inspired her to take up a career in Chiropractic. 

Erana graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic and worked in New Zealand for 2 years before making the decision to move to London to practice. She has just recently returned home, and thrilled to be part of the OCC team. 

Erana enjoys working with patients from all walks of life. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing seeing someone transform into a much healthier, happier and functioning person. 

In her spare time, she loves travelling, hanging out with friends and finding the best coffee spots!
