"It was at the age of 15 that I was fortunate enough to find chiropractic as my life's purpose.
Having the opportunity to visit a chiropractor on numerous occasions following recurrent headaches and sport related injuries provided me with an insight into this fantastic profession. Chiropractic was unique; I liked what I saw and soon became empowered on the prospects of one day becoming a chiropractor. I found it absolutely amazing how my body had the intelligence and ability to heal without following the usual allopathic approach of drugs or surgery. Shortly after I announced to my parents that I was to become a chiropractor and the rest is history!
After achieving the required grades at college I soon started a five year masters degree in Chiropractic at the Anglo European Chiropractic College (AECC) in Bournemouth. Shortly after graduating I registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and became a member of the United Chiropractic Association (UCA). Throughout my five years at college I personally attended over 250 extra hours learning at seminars all over the world. After talking to many chiropractors I realised that miracles were seen within the chiropractic practice every day. On visiting numerous chiropractic practices I was amazed to see many testimonials of patients with all different types of conditions such as asthma and babies being helped with infantile colic. It then became apparent to me that there was more to chiropractic than just neck and low back pain.
Ever since, chiropractic has been a lifestyle choice for me and I receive chiropractic care every two weeks. I am passionate about the science of human wellness and feel morally obligated to educate my patients on ways to increase health and well being through eating, thinking and moving in ways which are compatible with our bodies. I strive to be a passionate dedicated chiropractor who offers the finest chiropractic health care service with professionalism, clinical expertise and compassion. I am committed to promoting optimal health and well being of all patients. I like to use a 'whole person approach'. This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimise the conditions for normal function. Using this approach has allowed me to help many people accelerate their journey to good health."
"My first experience of true health and chiropractic was through Joe when we met in 2010. I had previously suffered years of constant headaches, which at the time I made no connection to the fact that my lifestyle was causing this. It was far 'easier' and what I perceived as 'normal' to keep reaching for over the counter pain killers everyday, rather than actually taking the time to address the real issue and get to the route cause of the problem.
I can honestly say that Joe has dramatically changed my life, if I had not of met him and been introduced to this model of care I would have been heading down a very slippery slope, there is only a certain amount of time that your body can keep surviving in such a toxic environment. It was not a sustainable lifestyle I was living, yet I was totally unaware of the affects it was having on my body due to the heavy advertising we are bombarded with daily. From a young age, I became very skeptical of the medical profession after seeing the influence they had on my families health so when I heard about chiropractic and how it restores the body's innate healing potential everything fell into place for me. One of my biggest questions was 'why have I not been told about this before?', how could a profession that is so special and unique be kept from me? From that moment I started on my journey of transforming my health and knew that I needed to reach as many people as I could with this same message. Regular chiropractic adjustments, allowed me to become totally in tune with my body, my headaches vanished, my posture improved, I was able to manage my stress levels easier and finally could get a good nights sleep! Alongside this I implemented a paleo lifestyle, started juicing, exercising regularly and began meditating. I very quickly began to read the warning signs that my body would give me, which before I would simply try and mask rather than address the cause.
Based on my own personal experience, I made it my mission to transform the way people view their own health. How you eat, think, move and function on a daily basis will either move you towards sickness or wellness, the question is which path do you chose? Everybody has the right to express their full genetic potential and that is why we are here to provide the tools and knowledge that will have you on your path to health!"
"My interest in health and fitness began with my love for running. At the age of 14 I ran the Race for Life, this was a massive challenge having never been a 'sporty' person at school. I continued to increase the mileage until I ran my first marathon at 18 and have now run nine marathons across Europe. During this time, I have learnt how to train and eat most effectively. Running has allowed me to achieve goals, live a healthy lifestyle and feel good about myself.
In 2015 I qualified as a Personal Trainer. I have since worked with many clients of different ages and abilities as well as teach group exercise classes. I enjoy working with people, learning what motivates a person and finding exercises that are both engaging and rewarding.
I was drawn to Core Wellness Centres for the holistic approach to training. It is not purely for aesthetics but to improve the overall quality of a person's life. I ran because of how it made me feel in my mind as well as my body. I believe exercise is so much more than how you look, it is as much mental as it is physical. I am excited to be a part of the team, helping to transform bodies, attitudes and lives."
"Being one of four boys growing up I’ve always lived an active lifestyle; through football and golf on weekends, to more recently bike rides in the Surrey Hills. Participating in such activities always encountered the risk of injury and through the years I saw various professionals for treatment, receiving Sports Massage on numerous occasions. Naturally I grew an appreciation for the importance of looking after your bodies health.
I always knew that I would follow an active career path and decided to take the step into the health and wellness industry by furthering my studies, completing my degree in Sports Rehabilitation at St Mary’s University in 2016. During this time I gained great knowledge in the anatomy and function of the body. Working with professional sports teams including Harlequins Rugby and Aldershot Town FC, as well as working alongside other practitioners in clinic based settings. I feel these experiences gave me a good understanding of the types of issues surrounding not only the sporting population but for those just going about their daily activities.
Everyone is born with the potential to lead a healthy and pain free life, I take great pride in helping others to achieve this through massage and education working with the team at Core Wellness Centres."
"At school, my love of sport meant I always got involved with any competitions and tried nearly everything on offer. Hockey was my passion, playing since a young age and continuing to play throughout University. Choosing physical education as an A level gave me a huge insight into the many aspects of sport and fitness. Studying Sport and Exercise Science at Hertfordshire University was a great experience and was definitely the right choice for me. I was able to learn about a variety of areas such as nutrition, anatomy and biomechanics, human physiology and health promotion.
During my course I really found an interest in health and wellbeing, learning how to keep the body healthy by eating well, staying active and being positive. By taking part in the practical work, I was able to see firsthand just how different types of exercise and supplements can impact performance. Within my third year I shadowed a health and wellbeing team working with a number of patients who were diagnosed with various illnesses and disabilities. This really opened my eyes to how important being part of a health and wellbeing team would be.
Helping people progress and improve in their overall health is a goal I wish to achieve and by working at Core Wellness Centres I hope I can help people become happy, healthy and confident."
"I have been receiving chiropractic care with Joe since 2010 so was delighted to have the opportunity to join the team at Core Wellness Centres. I originally started care for tension in my neck and shoulders and since moved into a wellness programme to look after my spine.
I have been interested in health and nutrition for most of my adult life and follow an active lifestyle by cycling and walking/ hiking regularly. I feel renewed energy after spending time in our beautiful British countryside and love exploring new and different areas.
Maintaining good physical, chemical and emotional well-being helps us all to engage in our day-to-day activities to the best of our abilities. I strive to be as healthy as possible but for me there is always room for improvement! Working at Core Wellness Centres I look forward to not only continuing to enhance my own health but also to helping others achieve their lifestyle goals too."
