I was born and raised in South Devon, studied chiropractic at the AECC in Bournemouth, and graduated in 2002 with a Masters Degree in Chiropractic. Then it was back to my roots to start practising!
I was fortunate to be offered a position within Torbay Chiropractic Healthcare Clinics where I worked for 11 years.
I am passionate about creating a place that is accessible to everyone. Being proactive about our health and looking after ourselves is something that should be available to us all, not purely the privileged few or the ones who can’t afford not to.
I’ve developed a busy family practice and thrive on the challenges posed by all different age groups, and in 2004 I was awarded Surestart contracts to offer Chiropractic treatment of newborns in Torbay to be provided via this government-funded initiative. This has helped build my reputation as a successful paediatric chiropractor and I continue to offer treatment for those as young as 5 days old. Referral of these, my youngest and most fragile of patients, often comes from local Health Visitors and Midwives.
My own experience as a busy mother of two has strengthened my passion for seeing children on a healthy path from the very start.
I vary my approach to suit your needs, but predominantly use Diversified Technique (the most widely used amongst chiropractors) and I add to this by using massage and other soft tissue techniques to relax musculature.
I’m qualified in Dry Needling and I have done further post graduate training in Craniosacral techniques.
I am always happy to answer questions, and I want you to feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave, feeling healthy and revived.
Now that Covid safety restrictions have eased we are simply asking that all patients attending appointments feel fully well in themselves or take a lateral flow test (and test negative) before coming into the clinic.
If you have any doubts over your health we are happy to rearrange your appointment. We really appreciate 24 hours notice of this if at all possible.
In addition, we ask that (especially in busy periods) you continue to wear a face covering in the public areas of the clinic.
Thank you for continuing to help us protect our team and more vulnerable patients so that we can continue to look after you all.
