Meet the Team
MEET THE CHIROPRACTORS
Director | Chiropractor
Coming from a history of dough kneading, I was drawn away by the hunger to understand the intricacies of the human body. Brought up in a large, loving family and having a mother starting a degree in nursing my eyes were opened to the caring profession. Following attending a Chiropractor for a recent rugby injury, I enrolled at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic to begin my journey.
Graduating in 2008, I moved to Essex where, over 4 years, I successfully built two patient bases for what is now one of the largest Chiropractic centres in the UK. During this time I not only perfected my Chiropractic technique and dealings with common back problems but also developed a passion for rehabilitation.
Moving back to my hometown, I started The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol with my former colleague and business partner Matt. Through this centre, I aim to continue to learn and grow, pass on my knowledge to new graduates and our growing team and also explore a new philanthropic edge though our link with Cherish Uganda.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to not only alleviate your symptoms but to open your eyes to the other benefits of Chiropractic care, all whilst achieving a higher level of wellbeing.
Director | Chiropractor
I first discovered Chiropractic whilst doing work experience at Wimbledon and Oxford United Football clubs. Any players with complicated or repetitive problems would often be sent to the local chiropractor. From there, I fell in love with the profession and knew it was for me. I successfully graduated with a degree in Chiropractic from Glamorgan University in 2003 and haven’t looked back since.
Having spent the last 9 years building thriving clinics in Essex, my passion for Chiropractic only grew stronger. During this period I enrolled in many professional development courses such as Rehabilitation, Dry Needling, Acupuncture and Kinesiotaping. With my new and varied skill set, I established The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol in October 2012 alongside my good friend and colleague Charles Herbert. Our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone that comes to see us in Bristol and in the process help those that are under the care of our sister charity, Cherish Uganda.
It is my passion to ensure everyone has the opportunity to experience not only top class Chiropractic care, but also outstanding customer service with a whole lot of fun.
As I was growing up, I always knew I wanted to work with people, working side by side with them to help them achieve their individual aspirations. Chiropractic helped me as a teenager by alleviating me from pains I began to accept as normal. Chiropractic enabled me to continue with the sports I loved. I knew very quickly that I wanted to do this for others too.
I graduated in 2015 with a distinction from the University of South Wales. I thoroughly enjoyed the last year building a broad patient base in the university clinic, and helping each of them to better health.
I am thoroughly excited to be part of the awesome and friendly Chiropractic Centre: Bristol team. My aim here is to integrate my up-to-date knowledge of the profession and research into the care I provide, to ensure it is of the highest quality possible for all my patients.
I look forward to meeting you, and sharing with you, your journey from pain relief progressing through to optimum health.
I have always had a fascination with the complex workings of the human body. When I first discovered the world of Chiropractic, I was amazed by it. After visiting my local Chiropractor for help with low back pain, I was intrigued by her approach to my problem and it wasn’t long before I was feeling healthier than ever before. Soon after I decided to enrol at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, where I graduated in 2013 with a distinction.
Since graduating I have worked at clinics in Lichfield, Stroud and Portishead, moving to Bristol in 2014 and joining the amazing team here at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol. During this time I have developed great experience in dealing with a range of common spinal problems and musculoskeletal conditions.
I look forward to meeting you, assessing your goals and taking you on your journey to greater spinal health and overall wellbeing.
Prior to completing my first degree I worked as a gym instructor and lifeguard where I found a passion for the human body and performance.
Whilst completing my first degree in Sport and Exercise Science the lesions I enjoyed the most were about anatomy and physiology and how the body worked. From there I decided to do a qualification in Sports Massage and become a manual therapist.
I stared out working alongside Chiropractors as the in-house massage therapist, like we have here, and performed all the massage, kinesiology taping and rehabilitation. However, I was so intrigued by what the Chiropractors where doing that I decided to go back to university for another 4 years to do further training to become a Chiropractor myself.
I graduated from the University of South Wales with a distinction in Chiropractic and have been working at The Chiropractic Centre Bristol ever since. Whilst helping people with their back problems I am passionate about educating them on how to better look after themselves in their day to day life.
Outside of work I spend my time in the gym, improving my knowledge or outside with friends, presuming the weather is good. When the weather is bad I will meet up with friends online and play some video or board games.
Having grown up in the idyllic countryside around Bristol, I knew that I wanted to get involved with helping people. Being a hands-on person lead me into the world of healthcare. I started out my training in the NHS as a Physiotherapist in Coventry, but after becoming disillusioned with the “get out of pain and go home” style of treating patients I moved into Chiropractic, which further suited my skill-set and philosophies. My special interests lie with shoulders, having suffered myself from the odd twinge. I combine my experience with up to date techniques to give you the best chance of recovery. My style of practise reflects my high energy and infectious positivity – You can be sure i’ll be there alongside you every step of the way on your journey with us.
On my days off you can expect to find me surfing the picturesque beaches of the South West or tantalising my taste-buds making weird and wonderful cocktails from my past life as a bartender! I’m always up for trying something new and really dislike being stuck inside on a rainy day. I am a keen football enthusiast and being a Liverpool supporter, I am hoping this season will deliver!
I consider myself fortunate to be part of the team here at The Chiropractic Centre who I know will help me perfect the art of Chiropractic. I can’t wait to meet you to see how we can help you enjoy your life to the max!
I am incredibly excited to be starting my next chapter with this energetic, friendly and committed team at The Chiropractic Centre and I cannot wait to meet you, share your journey and help to exceed your well-being expectations.
Growing up in the French Alps, sport was a major part of life. Performance, injury prevention and rehabilitation naturally became interests. This lead me to investigate the different approaches of the many manual therapy professions.
After shadowing my first Chiropractic session and seeing the holistic approach to the patient’s problems I was hooked. I enrolled into the Welsh institute of Chiropractic. During my time there I also became qualified in dry needling and graduated in 2020 amidst a global pandemic which underlined the importance of taking care of your health.
On my days off I am usually running around playing lacrosse, flying my drone or skiing down the slopes (when the weather allows).
I am excited to start this new chapter of professional and personal development with The Chiropractic Centre : Bristol. I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you on your journey to greater spine health and wellbeing.
MEET THE MASSAGE THERAPISTS
Sports Massage Therapist
My first experience of massage was when I was competitive sprinter competing around the UK. I was fascinated by how the human body works and how massage can help anyone achieve better health.
I studied Sports Therapy at Coventry University and graduated in 2014 with a First Class degree. Since graduating I have worked in clinics in Winchester before moving to Bristol in 2018.
I love working with the team at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol. My aim is to help you achieve your goal, whether that is to get out of pain or to maintain a healthy active lifestyle. Massage used in conjunction with Chiropractic adjustments is a great way to achieve those goals.
Sports Massage Therapist
From a young age I have loved making people feel good and helping them to achieve their goals in every sense, so massage was always a natural career path for me.
I have been a qualified therapist since 2014, gaining my experience in high end spas and on Super Yachts in the Mediterranean. I provide deeply theraputic treatments with a holistic approach to promote feelings of relaxation, well-being and healing. My aim is to make my clients feel more emotionally balanced, refreshed and with a renewed energy; of course coupled with considerably less aches and pains.
I believe it is SO important that we look after our bodies and our minds that carry us through our everyday lives; I look forward to working with you and helping you feel like your best self!
MEET THE CHIROPRACTIC ASSISTANTS
Having pursued careers in travel, photography and illustration to then becoming a Mum to my two wonderful little boys, I had become a bit disillusioned with what I really wanted to do next in life; I was ready to find something I loved!
I have always been passionate about health and using alternative therapies and have visited Chiropractors at various points in my life, and in during both of my pregnancies. Once my babies were born, they were taken straight to my Chiropractor to ensure that they were growing with healthy straight spines. When I found my job as a Chiropractic Assistant at The Chiropractic Centre, I was over the moon to finally be integrated into this amazing, forward-thinking team who all wanted to achieve the same thing: to help others and to spread the Chiropractic word among our local community, along with all of it’s life changing benefits.
I can honestly say that I have never felt more at home, more in tune and more comfortable with both the team I work alongside, our wonderfully enthusiastic patients and the strong ethos that we follow every day! Every day of my journey with TCC:B brings me new knowledge and so many laughs and I hope to remain here for a very long time. I look forward to meeting you and inviting you to join the TCCB family!
Bristol Chiropractic Assistant
After 15 years of working within the beauty industry and managing a luxury retail shop in Clifton helping customers to look and feel good, I wanted a change in my career and was keen to continue to help people feel their best but with their health and wellbeing.
The Chiropractic Centre completely inspired me in doing that; I love seeing the improvement our patients make every day and enjoy taking care of their needs when they arrive in our clinic. Nothing is too much to ask. I have witnessed Chiropractic care improve the health and wellbeing of so many of our patients in so many way and it has definitely changed some lives; After struggling myself with lower back pain due to some bad posture, I wished that I had started seeing a Chiropractor years ago!
My passion is meeting new people, helping them to feel better and making them smile – it inspires me to see our lovely regulars enjoying our nurturing, friendly environment and having fun whilst also receiving the highest standard in Chiropractic treatment. My job is to look after you from the minute you arrive in our welcome area until you leave again – I’ll leave the adjustments to our expert Chiropractors but I can make you feel extremely at home whilst you’re with us, make you a cracking cuppa tea and ensure that you have all your appointments booked in for when you need them.
I look forward to welcoming lots of new faces to the practice very soon!
Bristol Chiropractic Assistant
I’m Judy and I’m based in the Southville practice where I love being a part of the thriving community we have built here.
Having grown up locally I feel that it is a real blessing to be able to work around and contribute to the vibrant area that is close to my heart. I take pride in helping to create an uplifting environment in which people can come in and chill, have a chat, be themselves and listen to nice music. I am passionate about movement, wellbeing and nutrition so I feel very lucky to work within a field which emphasises these things too. I love that Chiropractic is now part of my daily life; among many benefits it has given me more awareness of my long-term health and the fact that a healthy spine means I can keep doing the sports and activities I do – and better! Our team is so supportive and uplifting that each day coming into work feels more like coming home! In my spare time I take photographs, do yoga (soon to teach!) and swim. I also like to visit other cities and discover their music scenes as much as possible.
I am looking forward to welcoming you all into our lovely space soon!
Bristol Chiropractic Assistant
I first began working at The Chiropractic Centre part time whilst I was studying at university and quickly realised the impact that chiropractic and massage was having on people’s lives. It was really awesome to see the journey that people were taking because of their care with us and the improvements that our chiropractors and massage therapists were making to our patients’ health and well-being.
Not long after joining the team I actually found out I was pregnant (!) and in the months that followed I experienced how chiropractic and massage could help with pregnancy aches and pains. It made me feel SO much more comfortable, especially in the later stages of pregnancy! I cannot recommend it enough.
After my beautiful daughter Marianne was born I brought her straight in for a complimentary baby check to make sure everything was okay with her and that she was growing with a straight and healthy spine. I have continued to bring Marianne to our clinic to visit our chiropractors and now both Mama and daughter get checked regularly.
I love working with my lovely colleagues and my fellow Chiropractic Assistants keep me laughing and entertained every shift.
Bristol Chiropractic Assistant
It’s always been important to me to be a part of a business that is all about something I’m genuinely interested in and really care about. I have been using Chiropractic since I was 12-years-old, beginning back in my hometown of Essex, so it’s fair to say chiropractic has been a part of my life for quite a while!
After living in Bath for four years, I made the decision to move to Bristol in January 2019. I didn’t know anyone here, but I fortunately found myself working with the best team and interacting with the loveliest of patients at The Chiropractic Centre and because of them it didn’t take me long to settle in and feel at home.
My favourite things about working at TTC:B are seeing the amazing difference in patients from when they first come in compared to how they look and feel once they finish their course of care, having a laugh with them and my wonderful team, and the fact there is never a boring day here!
I can’t wait to welcome you into our clinic; you’re going to be in great hands!
