Chiropractic is a regulated health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. Chiropractors typically study for 4 years plus to obtain a post-graduate level qualification in chiropractic.
There is an increasing evidence-base for chiropractic, and it is now included in NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) Guidelines for the treatment of back pain.
Chiropractors use a range of manual therapeutic techniques mainly involving the hands and hand-held tools (activators, massagers etc.) Most chiropractors include ‘adjustments’ of the spine and other joints. After the initial consultation the patient can generally be treated fully clothed.
Chiropractors are experts in the treatment of back pain and musculoskeletal pain, especially chronic. joint and muscle problems, recurring undiagnosed headaches and reducing injury risk for sportspeople.

Osteopathy is a hands-on approach to prevention, assessment and treatment to allow your body to heal. Osteopaths are experts in the musculoskeletal system and how it interacts with other systems of the body. An osteopath must train for a minimum of 4 years, graduate with over 1000 hours of hands-on clinical practise and must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
A common question from patients is “does it hurt?” If you are working on an area that is already in pain, there will commonly be tenderness and some discomfort. But on the whole osteopathy is quite gentle and not generally a painful treatment option. Most patients find osteopathic treatment very relaxing.
Osteopathy can be used successfully to treat specific conditions, but by nature osteopathy is a whole-body approach to restoring health. Sometimes pain or other symptoms are caused by a combination of issues around the body. At Core Clinics our osteopath specialises in treating patient suffering with headaches, gastrointestinal symptoms, menstrual discomfort, and people with hypermobility.

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person's health and well-being. Massage therapy is an umbrella term for a variety of massage techniques including deep tissue massage, sports massage, Swedish massage and clothed massage.
In a shorter session the therapist will typically focus on one area of the body where tension or discomfort has been identified – typically the neck and shoulders, lower back, or legs. In a longer session they may do a whole-body massage. A variety of ‘strokes’ from deep tissue massage and expansive strokes to lighter touches may be used.
Typically used as a standalone treatment for people whose problems are not chronic, massage is also very beneficial for stress and tension, fatigue, general aches and pain or a ‘feelgood’ lift.
When used in combination with chiropractic adjustments or osteopathic mobilisation it can improve the effectiveness of the adjustments by relaxing the patient and reducing temporary discomfort of treatment.
Massage therapy is not a protected title in the UK and there is no specific designated training course to undertake or regulator. Typically massage therapists hold a diploma qualification although degree level qualifications are available. All massage therapists in the Core team have a high level of qualifications and experience in massage and usually have further training in related fields (e.g. personal training, acupuncture).
Types of massage therapy
If you are unsure of what type, or combination of types, of massage are suited to you please don’t be concerned. Our massage therapists will advise and discuss alternatives with you to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment for your needs and preferences.
Sports massage
Sports massage is a good option if you have a repetitive-use injury to a muscle and it’s also a good option if you’re prone to injuries and can help prevent sports injuries. You may also use sports massage to increase flexibility and performance or to relieve pain, anxiety, and muscle tension.
A sports massage can be done as a full-body massage or the massage therapist may focus on the parts of the body that need the most attention. Deep pressure may be alternated with soothing strokes depending on your needs.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a therapeutic massage. It’s a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. It can help relieve tight muscles, chronic muscle pain, and anxiety.
During a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will use slow strokes and deep finger pressure to relieve tension from the deepest layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
While deep tissue may be more intense, you shouldn’t feel any pain or soreness. However we do not recommend this type of massage if you’re overly sensitive to pressure.
Therapeutic / Swedish massage
A gentle, relaxing style of massage that’s ideal for people who are new to massage, have a lot of tension, are sensitive to touch or prefer a lighter massage pressure. It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage. The massage therapist will typically use a combination of kneading, long, flowing strokes in the direction of the heart, deep circular motions, vibration and tapping and passive joint movement techniques
Trigger point massage
Trigger point massages are best suited for people who have injuries, chronic pain, or a specific issue or condition. Sometimes areas of tightness in the muscle tissues, known as trigger points, can cause pain in other parts of the body. By focusing on relieving trigger points, this type of massage can reduce pain. This technique can also be combined with acupuncture or electroacupuncture with great success.
Trigger point massage uses broad, flowing strokes that are gentle and relaxing combined with stronger, deeper pressure. The massage will include work on your entire body, though your therapist will focus on specific areas of your body that need to be released. You can wear lightweight clothing for the massage or be fully or partially undressed.

I qualified as a Doctor of Chiropractic in the USA and have experience of working in several different clinical settings there prior to moving to the UK at the start of 2023.

I enjoy working with patients of all ages on a range of musculoskeletal complaints to get at the root of the problem so that I can bring about not just symptom relief but also lasting improvement. I typically approach care from a biomechanical perspective, looking at movement patterns, determining where dysfunction arises and then addressing it through a combination of spinal manipulation (“adjusting”), soft tissue therapy and therapeutic exercise.

While I enjoy treating patients of all walks of life, as an ex-athlete I have a particular interest in Sports Chiropractic, and in working with patients who are active (powerlifters/Crossfitters/bodybuilders, runners, cyclers, footballers, swimmers etc.) to support them in performing their chosen activity or hobby at a higher level or with less pain.

I’m excited at the opportunity that working alongside other health care providers affords me in providing a multi-pronged approach to care to ensure personalized and optimized outcomes, and I look forward to supporting you on your wellness journey!

I have experience of working with people who were anxious or depressed or suffering from recent or historical traumatic events. This includes working with those who’ve suffered physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse, in their lives.

I have also worked with people suffering loss or bereavement and people with life-limiting conditions or illnesses as well as those nearing the end of their lives through natural causes.

In some cases, the people I’ve worked with simply wanted to develop themselves and their understanding of their emotional experiences to improve or maintain their sense of wellbeing, or perhaps to improve their work experiences and/or work/life balance.
