Sam Davies (Principle Chiropractor – MChiro DC)

Since graduating in 2012 with a Distinction, Sam has found that her passion lies in combining chiropractic with soft tissue techniques and functional rehabilitation in order to help her patients improve in whatever issue they come in with, and to give them the tools they need to keep them out of pain and moving well.

She is currently completing a series of courses in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS) which primarily focuses on correct core activation in specific postural positions. You can read more about DNS in the services section which explains it in more depth. When completed she will be both a certified DNS Practitioner and DNS Exercise Coach so watch this space.

Sam loves treating people of all ages and from all walks of life, but she has a special interest in treating CrossFit Athletes and Weight-Lifters. Not only those who come to her with an injury, but also to help improve performance and prevent injuries from occurring. This interest arose due to her own love of the sport which she has been doing for the past 4 years, and also personal injuries which were a result of not moving as well as she should have at the time. Her goal is to not let this happen to others and help people to keep injury free whilst training.

Sam is registered with The General Chiropractic Council and The British Chiropractic Association.

Kate Bayley (Chiropractor – MChiro DC)

In 2010 Kate graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic with a Chiropractic degree, and has been working in Greater Manchester ever since.

Not only does she believe that it is her job to try and get people to be pain free, she also feels that it is her job to provide patients with the correct information and advise them on how to make better, healthier lifestyle choices so that they can function at their optimal level.

Spinal health is something that can often be taken for granted and people only tend to seek out chiropractic care when there is pain or discomfort. However, it has many more benefits and is just as important as regular exercise and eating a balanced diet in keeping us well and preventing injury.

Kate likes to keep fit in her spare time – she enjoys playing netball, practicing yoga and loves to go on country walks.

Kate is registered with The General Chiropractic Council and The Scottish Chiropractic Association.

Ashleigh Smith – Soft Tissue Therapist

Ashleigh was born and raised in Durban, South Africa, where she developed a passion for sports and fitness which included netball, football, swimming and above all, horse riding. After incurring a few injuries herself, she became fascinated with physical therapy and what it takes to get back on track after an injury.

She received her BSc in Human Physiology, Genetics and Psychology from the University of Pretoria in 2012 but realised that her interest still lay in treating injuries and chronic pain. It was then that she went on to get her Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy as well as becoming certified in Equine Therapy.

Today she still uses the knowledge from her degree to give advice to her patients and help them make small changes that can have huge benefits to their everyday lives. She has a love for health and fitness and finds it incredibly rewarding to see the progress patients make.

In her spare time she enjoys strength training, Pilates and anything that is outdoors and active.
