MEET THE CHIROPRACTORS

Charles Herbert | Clifton Bristol Chiropractor

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.

Chiropractor

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.

Rhys Owen

Chiropractor

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.

Chiropractor

Growing up with a keen interest in the human body and a passion for working with people, I always knew that I wanted a career in healthcare, where I would be able to improve people’s quality of life and enable them to return to the activities that they love.

I was introduced to chiropractic after taking a role as a receptionist at a clinic in Gloucestershire as a teenager. A sufferer of headaches myself, I was amazed by the difference that chiropractic care could make, and the influence that the spine can have elsewhere in the body. Watching patients leave the clinic smiling and feeling great inspired me to become a chiropractor myself. Soon after I enrolled to study at the University of South Wales, from which I graduated with a distinction in chiropractic. I am also proud to have been given both the Award for Academic Excellence and also the award for Best Research Project.

I am so thrilled to be a part of our lovely team here at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol, where my goal is to provide the best quality care and guidance to each of my patients. I really look forward to meeting and working with you to help you to relieve your symptoms and to get you back to feeling your best.

MEET THE MASSAGE THERAPISTS

Nathan Cobern

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

I qualified as a massage therapist in Yorkshire in 2004 and followed that with a qualification in Equine Sports Massage. My love of horses brought me to the South West in 2006 to work for a racehorse trainer, this taught me the value of an inter-disciplinary approach. I have been back working with humans for several years and am now delighted to be joining the team at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol.

I look forward to meeting you and offering you a wonderful treatment that will combine a therapeutic approach to releasing your tight muscles along with a relaxing experience.

MEET THE CHIROPRACTIC ASSISTANTS

Steff Haley | Bristol Chiropractic Assistant

Steff

Practice Manager | Chiropractic Assistant

With a previous background in restaurant management and fine art never has a truer word been spoken than ‘Your dream job does not exist, you must create it.’  As soon as I made the decision to explore a lifelong interest in alternative therapy the creating started.  Many exciting doors have been opened for me in this field, but most notably the distinct glossy royal blue one at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol.

Our team pride ourselves on a culture that stems from knowledge, passion and wellbeing.  We are continually training, researching and munching on a bit of cake (in moderation of course) to give you the best care and customer service possible.  Health is something we take for granted until we do not have it anymore and to see someone leave our practice having been given the gift of their health back is a priceless moment.

My first experience of chiropractic was with DC Matt Poulter who appeared to instantly relieve my chronic shoulder pain in two seconds.  It was quickly a mystery why I had put up with it for so long.  It wasn’t until I attended a conference hosted by The United Chiropractic Association that a passion for chiropractic as a lifestyle really became ignited in me.  It’s many benefits are astounding and to be surrounded by such an inspirational group of people on a daily basis really makes the difference between having a job and having a passion.

Bristol Chiropractic Assistant

After having the most incredible years in London studying to become an actress I returned home to Bristol to try and discover more about what I wished to pursue as a career (I also missed my pony too much).  I knew that I loved helping people, chatting with people, learning new skills and being a part of team so when I saw the Chiropractic Assistant role advertised I thought it was the most perfect role for me… and I was right.

Every day I meet fabulous people, learn something new and have a good old natter with our regular patients.  I had never experienced chiropractic myself before working here and after suffering with a bad back after a horse riding accident I can honestly say the difference after seeing the chiropractors here has been life changing.  I now partake in weekly fitness classes, ride Marley as much as I can and I haven’t felt better. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you with one of our famous teas or coffee and if you’re lucky some freshly baked cake.

Bristol Chiropractic Assistant

I never had a clear path with what I’ve wanted to do with my career – I studied Photography then went straight into various roles either within retail or hospitality. When I started at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol it was a breath of fresh air and my path was clear to see! You’ll learn from your first visit here that we’re all a big family and enjoy nothing more than a giggle!

Chiropractic has personally helped me massively with headaches and posture. I was the person that thought a daily headache was normal and put it down to tiredness – needless to say the Chiropractors scoffed and found I had a subluxation in my neck, so after a few weeks of treatment I realised there is life without headaches… who knew!
I’m also so much more aware of my posture and the importance of it now and can feel the difference that Chiropractic & Sports massage has made to my quality of life.

We’re all excited to welcome you into our fun-loving clinic and for you to begin your chiropractic journey with us (P.S cake and dogs are also always welcome!)

Bristol Chiropractic Assistant

Having pursued careers in travel and illustration and then becoming a Mum to 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 medicine and had used Chiropractors during both of my pregnancies and with both my newborn babies, finding incredible results; so when I found my job as a Chiropractic Assistant at The Chiropractic Centre: Bristol I was over the moon to finally be integrated into an amazing team who all wanted to achieve the same thing: to help others and to spread the Chiropractic word 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 amazing team I work with and our fantastic patients! Every day brings 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!
