Chiropractors

Dr Gemma Phipps D.C, BSc (Hons), BSc (Hons), M.R.C.C - Clinic Director

I qualified as a Doctor of Chiropractic from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan in 2008. I went on to study at Postgraduate level gaining a PGCert in Clinical Chiropractic.  Prior to studying for my Chiropractic degree I completed a B.Sc. (Hons) in Biological Sciences, Physiology and Pharmacology at Manchester Metropolitan University.

My interest in Chiropractic began after developing back pain due to poor posture whilst working for my local NHS Trust. I visited my local Chiropractic Clinic, and was so impressed by the treatment that I received and the results that I experienced, that I decided to retrain and become a Chiropractor.

In 2010 I completed my foundation level training in Acupuncture through the British Medical Acupuncture Society and in 2012 went on to complete further training in Electroacupuncture.  I went on to train in Applied Kinesiology in 2018.  I enjoy being able to combine the skills and knowledge I have learned to help my patients achieve optimum health.  

Outside of the practice I love spending time with my family and my 2 small children.  I enjoy walking, yoga, pilates, watching films and reading.

Dr John Ho D.C, BSc, MSc - Associate

I am a chiropractor specialised in managing various musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions such as lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and dizziness, and issues in the extremities. I graduated with a Masters in Chiropractic from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC), Bournemouth and am registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). I am also a member of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and the Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC).

As an evidence-informed manual therapist, I am trained in providing hands-on treatments such as spinal manipulative therapy, soft tissue work, and mobilisation techniques. I am also a firm believer in empowering my patients and giving them the right tools to help themselves through lifestyle changes, physical activity, and education. I like to help my patients understand and make sense of their pain, and guide them on their way to recovery with the best of my abilities.

Outside of work, I like to indulge myself in films, music, and good food. I enjoy talking to other people and hearing their stories, because I believe there is always something one can learn from another. I like to stay active and keep fit whenever I can. I've picked up a jump rope at the start of the year and am loving it!

Dr Cameron Morgan D.C., BSc. - Associate.  

I am a fully qualified McTimoney Chiropractor and a qualified level 3 diploma Sports Massage Therapist. I love helping out others in whatever way I can and the healthcare industry opens up a variety of ways in which I am able to do that at a professional level.  

I believe that everybody has at least a desire to be at their physical best throughout their lives whether that is because you wish to become great at a particular sport, you are trying to keep up with children, you need more energy to get you through the day or even do not want to be restricted by injury, aches or pains. 

Healing chronic and intractable ailments takes a certain level of understanding, focus, and sensitivity. As a sports massage therapist and now fully qualified Chiropractor, I will work to provide you with the best chance at optimum health and wellbeing.

Dr Lauren Sheppard D.C., BSc. - Associate.  

I graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2023. I’m excited to provide personalised care to alleviate pain, restore mobility, and enhance physical well-being. I want to empower people to take an active role in their health to achieve optimal wellness and a pain-free life.

I also have a level 3 diploma in Sports Massage and a foundation level Acupuncture and Dry Needling qualification.

Outside of the clinic I love spending time with friends & family, staying active, enjoying the sunshine & being a chocoholic.

Paul Langford BSc (Hons).

Born and bred in Birmingham, my passion for health, well-being and fitness has provided me with a wide range of experiences from working within medical research, professional sport and education before transitioning into a more client focused role satisfying my innate nature to help people.

 

With a love of nearly all sports and always willing to stick my toe in the water, being active and healthy is the cornerstone of my foundation I continue to build on.

 

I enjoy anything physical and if you were to throw a ball into the room, I’ll probably chase it around for a good few minutes! Rest and relaxation comes in the form of doing something active so sitting on a beach or by the side of the pool is not for me and if a motorbike is involved, I’m even happier, I just wish the comfort of riding increased proportionally with my age!

Judy Luzaic - Front Desk Team

Having suffered sciatica some years ago I was lucky enough to find Gemma and her Team of Chiropractors who helped me on the road to recovery.  No longer suffering and only need tweaking from time to time.  

I am now fortunate enough to be working with this great team of people dedicated to helping their patients become more mobile and ease their aches and pains.  

In my spare time, I enjoy watching rugby, painting, reading and socializing with friends.  

Isabella Powell

I have worked in public facing roles all my working life, having started out as a peripatetic music/performing arts teacher, and running my own theatre company from the age of 17.

I have since left the school environment behind and moved into customer services. I studied for an English Literature and Language Specialism degree at Wolverhampton University and use this in my roles within customer services.  I now split my time between the Reception desk in Clinic and a Front of House role at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.

In my limited spare time, I love reading, theatre, music, drawing and crafting and spending time with my family and friends.”
