I was lucky enough to grow up in a family where natural approaches to healthcare were often the first choice. As I result I was often whisked off to the local chiropractor when some health issue came up or I had some accident or injury. I remember being absolutely amazed at one such visit when I was 12 years old at how the chiropractor made a muscle that had felt so weak turn instantly strong with a seemingly simple adjustment.
A little while later, I went to spend some time watching different chiropractors work. I enjoyed my time with all of them and one of these chiropractors lent me a book that was to change the course of my life. The book was called “Chiropractic First” by Dr Terry Rondberg and by the time I had finished the first chapter I knew, without a doubt, that I was a chiropractor at heart.
I finally graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic here in Bournemouth in 2002. Having grown dissatisfied with a “Spinal Manipulative Therapy” model of chiropractic I was looking for something more to offer when in 2005 I discovered the work of Dr Neil Davies and began to study the Neuroimpulse protocol. I had always known that there was more to chiropractic than spinal manipulation so it was a great joy to find a model that used a neurological approach to chiropractic and also included the whole body.
I have since then been incredibly fortunate to be welcomed on to the NIP international teaching team and have co-authored a chapter in the second edition of Dr Davies’ popular chiropractic textbook: Chiropractic Pediatrics.
I have also always known that there is more to health than just the chiropractic adjustment and I am passionate about the role that lifestyle choices play in health. It is for this reason that I am so excited about the approach we are taking here at healthy for life. The combination of neurologically specific chiropractic and an ‘eat well, move well, think well’ lifestyle, is a powerful force for the restoration and preservation of good health.
I really look forward to meeting you and discovering if we can help.
