Sam Davies (Principle Chiropractor – MChiro DC)

In 2012, after an intensive 4 year Masters degree, Sam graduated with a distinction from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. In her final year, she was awarded best research project and whilst in year 3, she also received the outstanding student award.

Sam has always been a people person and after completing a degree in Biology in 2006, she knew her career would lie in healthcare rather than a laboratory. However, at this time she was unsure of which avenue to take. It wasn’t until she visited a Chiropractor herself, after experiencing episodes of lower back pain during her time as a care worker, that she had found her dream career.

Sam is interested in all aspects of chiropractic and enjoys treating patients of all ages and backgrounds. She has done additional training in treating mechanical issues related to pregnancy and paediatrics. Sam has a particular interest in treating athletes.

Sam’s favourite thing to do in her spare time is Crossfit which is where her love for treating athletes has come from. She feels that not only does chiropractic help with sports injuries when they arise, but that chiropractic can also help to prevent those injuries from occurring in the first place and also help you to perform at your absolute optimum. And this goes for people of all walks of like also, not just athletes.

Sam also likes to spend time socialising with friends, cooking, entertaining and reading.

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.

Kathryn Parkin (Chiropractor – BSc Chiropractic)

Originally from the beautiful South West of England, Kathryn has made Manchester her home since graduating from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in Glamorgan 2008.

When Kathryn received some treatment for her neck, she realised how amazing Chiropractic was and wanted to become a Chiropractor herself. Following a 5 year degree in Wales, Kathryn’s aim is to get everyone feeling great and functioning at their absolute best. Kathryn feels it is important to see each patient as a unique individual, to examine and diagnose with the highest standard of care and professionalism and provide successful chiropractic treatment and rehabilitation advice, appropriate for their lifestyle.

Kathryn likes to keep fit in her spare time – she enjoys Pilates and horse riding and spending family time out and about with her partner and young son.

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

Ashleigh Smith – Soft Tissue Therapist

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

I received my BSc in Human Physiology, Genetics and Psychology from the University of Pretoria in 2012 but realized that my interest still lied in treating injuries and chronic pain. It was then that I went on to get my Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy as well as a Certificate in Equine Therapy

Today I still use the knowledge from my degree to give advice to patients and help them make the small changes that can have huge benefits to their everyday lives. I have a love for health and fitness and I find it incredibly rewarding to see the progress my patients make.

In my spare time I enjoy strength training, Pilates and anything that is outdoors and active.
