Tom was first exposed to chiropractic by accident, after he sustained a rib injury playing county rugby for his native Cambridgeshire: a short course of treatment from a friend's father, who happened to be a chiropractor, saw him soon back to health and returned to the pitch.
Given his strong family connections to South Wales and the Welsh Valleys, Tom chose to study at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. Its proximity to the Brecon Beacons and stunning Gower Peninsula were – for this keen outdoor sportsman – a deal maker, and he graduated with a Masters degree in Chiropractic (MChiro).
Tom’s clinical approach is a diversified 'evidence based' technique integrating established principles in human health science: where appropriate he uses sacro-occipital technique (SOT), activator method and Derrifield technique to assist in fully understanding, diagnosing and treating your condition.
Ultimately his aim is to understand the root cause of symptoms so as to reduce or lessen the recurrence of any issues in future.
Setting up his own clinic has always been the goal. Tom wanted to be able to provide Chiropractic care in a relaxed and friendly manner, and Hoxton Square in Shoreditch presented as the perfect location for this approach. 14 months after opening and the clinic is going from strength to strength.
Tom is experienced dealing with most Orthopaedic conditions and is able to assist all age groups. My special interest is Sports Chiropractic (mainly Snow Sports, Rowing, and On/Off-Road Cycling). I have undertaken further training to work towards ICCPS and FICS accreditation.
Ellie qualified as a Doctor of Chiropractic after previously working as a Pilates instructor in London for 7 years and undertaking a bachelor's degree in dance at Dartington School of Arts.
She initially spent the first two years of her professional life training and performing as a dancer between London and New York before undertaking Pilates and Personal Training qualifications. Following this, Ellie built up her Pilates and Personal training business in Canary Wharf, training a variety of different clients. As her business grew, Ellie experienced people attending her classes who were in acute pain, often unable to walk or move. She wanted to help those she could not help with Pilates and so this inspired her to train as a Chiropractor.
She has 7 years experience as a Pilates instructor and personal trainer in commercial and corporate wellbeing - working as a lead personal trainer at HSBC HQ in Canary Wharf for a number of years.
Within the clinic setting, Ellie utilises a range of techniques including manipulative therapy, soft tissue release techniques, kinesiotaping and sports massage to help minimise pain and improve performance. She enjoys treating anyone who can benefit from treatment - but she particularly enjoys treating dancers and performers
