Marie resolved to becoming a chiropractor after experiencing her own traumatic spinal injuries, when aged 19, she was hit by an out of control car which mounted the pavement. Spending 2 months in hospital and a further year of rehabilitation, she knows first-hand what it is like to have back pain but also how powerful chiropractic can be in making a recovery. She believes the freak accident was fate and lead her into finding her professional calling as a chiropractor.

“Fabulous service, very friendly and professional. I can’t speak highly enough of treatment I received from the lady who treat me. I hobbled in, in agony and walked out practically skipping.
No higher acaolade in my opinion..”
“I spoke to the receptionist at 830am and they managed to make an appointment for me at 1.00pm. I had a initial consultation and was explained the problem that was causing me pain
I was at ease straight away and felt very comfortable while they worked on my back and they have relieved the pain in the first intance.
Thanks for making time for me today and the attention you gave.”
