Hi I’m Paula Garcia, chiropractor and director at Health and Vitality Centre, welcome to you all. The centre provides professional, safe and effective chiropractic and osteopathic care for all ages.
I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council, as well as the Scottish Chiropractic Association, and have been involved in Chiropractic for over twenty years.
At the centre, treatment is given in comfortable relaxed surroundings to aid in your pathway back to health. As a chiropractor I aim to help you gain knowledge regarding your condition. I feel that ‘Knowledge is Power’ therefore the more you understand about your condition the better your overall recovery will be.
I believe that there are many factors incorporated in leading a healthy pain free life and I aim to give nutritional, lifestyle, ergonomic and exercise advice. This helps to educate and empower my guests to long term health, by offering a total package of care.
So, if your body is stopping you doing the things that you love due to pain and dysfunction, such as to getting back to a sport, exercise, gardening, being able to lift your children/grandchildren, feeling like ‘yourself’ again contact the centre to book an appointment. Don’t let pain ruin your quality of life. Do something about it today.
Hello, my name is Mike Garcia and I am Director of finance and compliance at Health and Vitality Centre.
I had always had a passion for health and fitness, over the years suffering recurring hip and leg issues through competitive sport. After many years of taking painkillers to get through I was treated to chiropractic which reduced my pain and problems significantly. I am now living a fit and competitively active life as a keen cyclist, hiker and climber.
Hello, my name is Diane and I'm the new Practice Manager at The Health and Vitality Centre.
One of my greatest passions is that every day we are the best version of ourselves we can be on that day, and I truly believe that this starts from within and that our Health and wellbeing plays a vital role.
I started my professional life as a dancer and teacher which took me to many fabulous places. This was followed by a long and enjoyable career within tourism, creating and developing holiday experiences for all. I learnt that I have a passion for people and to enabling learning in their everyday roles.
Having travelled extensively, for work and pleasure, I believe I have found my new home in my role at the centre.
I have a personal thirst for knowledge and learning, and as such have recently qualified to be a L2 gym instructor and my Exercise to Music instructor is in progress.
When I'm not at the centre you'll find me at the Theatre, Gym, walking with friends (and their dogs), or spending quality time with my family.’
Hi, I'm Milli and I am one of the Great massage therapist here! I am a true believer in holistic mind and body health, alongside that I have a passion for educating others to become the best version of themselves. I enjoy keeping myself fit and going to the gym as well as keeping involved in gymnastics coaching as this has been a massive part of my life since the age of 2.
My passion for helping others through health and fitness stemmed from a serious injury I suffered which ended my elite gymnastics career at a young age. It was then that I was first introduced to the wonderful world of natural health care and massage which enabled me to return to sport and pursue my dreams in cheerleading.
I have a degree in sports therapy and have worked with Ealing Trailfinders rugby club. It was here that my love for massage therapy, as well as holistic healing, grew which has led me to this career.
Hi, l'm Emma, I have a strong belief and passion of the natural healing process of the body and how this can be enhanced through the art of massage.
Outside of my career, I love to travel and have a pet African grey parrot called Billy who loves to sing and dance.
I like to remain fit and healthy by spending my time at the gym or enjoying the nature from running. I always like to set myself challenges - last year I climbed the 3 highest peaks in the UK in 72 hours raising money for an amazing charity.
I feel that "the only way to do great work is to love what you do" and I will portray my passion by providing you with the best quality of care. It is a privilege to be part of this amazing team and I look forward to meeting you all soon.
Hi, I’m Molly & I am part of the HVC Massage Therapy team. I am very passionate about guiding people to better health and I love to help others blossom into the best versions of themselves.
I play netball & have done since I was 12 years old. At University, I played for the netball team. I have always enjoyed playing netball to maintain my fitness and excel as an athlete, as well as loving the social aspect of being in the team.
Aside from netball, my favourite thing to do is to spend quality time with my family & friends at home or going out for dinner and drinks.
I am a graduate of Sports Therapy at the University of Hertfordshire and I have worked in a similar clinic to The Health & Vitality Centre before, but I have also treated at Charlton Athletic FC as a massage therapist.
I strongly believe that massage is an important way to help keep the body healthy & working to its full potential. I have witnessed the benefits personally, as massage has massively helped heal my physical injuries and also allowed my mind to refocus & relax.
Massage shouldn't be viewed as just a "spa treat"! It helps lower blood pressure, boosts your immune system and improves your quality of sleep. It also reduces swelling, increases flexibility within the muscles & allows the joints to move more freely.
It's an incredible release and something we should all make time for at least once a month if not weekly! I have also seen incredible benefits when treating people who suffer from migraines. I have released tension within the muscles from injuries, as well as arthritic pain, and even helped reduce fatigue.
Hi, my name’s Lili! I started here at HVC at the beginning of March, but only working on the days when the centre was closed. I began my role with administrative work but have now grown to be very involved with the centre’s marketing and social media. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, then a lot of the posts you see on there will be uploaded by me! I have a passion for content creation, so this suits my interests very well. In my spare time I run my own cosmetics & beauty-oriented Instagram and YouTube channel.
My role has since further developed into becoming a part time Centre Assistant as well! I feel very lucky to be involved with so many areas of the business and to not only contribute to the running of the centre behind the scenes, but also meet guests face-to-face and play a front-facing part in the centre. This also allows me to see how everything joins up!
I, like many of my colleagues here, also have a love for animals. At home I have a 12-year-old ginger cat and an Italian Greyhound/Whippet Cross puppy who’s less than a year old. I volunteered at an animal sanctuary in Namibia back in 2015 which, to this day, remains a huge highlight of my life experiences!
Hi, my name is Beth. I have been a centre assistant at the Health and Vitality Centre for over five years now and love being part of such a great team of practitioners. I am a mum of two lovely girls and I enjoy running around after them. I have a passion for animals and love to keep fit.
Hello, Zara here. I joined HVC in November 2019 as a Centre Assistant and am thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of such a fantastic team and business. I really enjoy gardening, cooking, pilates (looking after my own wellbeing) and travelling. After 30+ years working full time, I now have the perfect life balance with my job here at HVC and having time for myself, family and friends. I could not be happier. I have already met many amazing guests and I look forward to meeting many more.
Hi, I’m Sam one of the Centre Assistant here at the Health and Vitality Centre. I am approaching my first year at the Health and Vitality Centre and I have loved being part of such a wonderful and lovely team. Like Lili, I started off in an administrative role on the days the centre was closed. Now I spend my Saturdays greeting you lovely guests whilst continuing with the background administration role!
I am currently in the first year of my A-Levels, studying Maths, Biology, and Chemistry, and hope to achieve a degree in pharmacology in the future, as the sciences that surrounds all our lives is simply fascinating to me.
My favourite animal has to be cats, as I have a 13 year-old ginger cat named DG, but I love all animals and would love to see all of yours too!
Hello, I’m Gemma. I started working at the Health and Vitality Centre the start of this year and have been welcomed with open arms from the lovely team.
I previously owned a dog grooming salon for 9 years which I am very proud of.
I recently had a little girl and have now found the perfect work life balance at the Health and Vitality Centre.
In my spare time I love to take my little Yorkshire Terrier Cross on long walks with the family and go swimming with my little girl.
