Paula

Chiropractor & Business Owner

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, British Chiropractic Association and have been involved in Chiropractic for over sixteen 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.

Mike

Director

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.

Laura

Practice Manager

Hello, my name is Laura and I am the Practice Manager at The Health and Vitality Centre. I have a real passion for health and wellbeing (having experienced chronic pain personally) and know how important a part this plays in leading a happy life. I made a big decision to leave my full-time corporate role in order to gain some much-needed balance in my life and I haven’t looked back!

Along with my role at the centre, I also run a Coaching and Training Consultancy. In recent years my focus has moved to Wellbeing, Resilience and Positive Psychology and I deliver workshops and coach individuals to support them in these areas.

I have always loved helping people; contributing towards a person’s happiness, confidence and sense of purpose in life provides me with great fulfilment and this is something that has stayed with me throughout my professional and personal endeavours.

I have a wide variety of interests! From yoga to horse riding, creative arts to voluntary work, meditation to attending festivals! Not forgetting precious time with friends and family. I’m excited to be a part of the team and am looking forward to helping those that visit the centre.

Dr of Osteopathy at The Health and Vitality Centre - Rory McKay

Rory

Osteopath

Hi I'm Rory and I'll be joining Paula and the rest of the wonderful team as their new osteopath.

A big part of what I enjoy most about being an osteopath is that you get to guide patients along their journey, no matter what stage of life they’re currently experiencing.

A few examples of these journeys include taking children through the awkward growing pains of adolescence, watching them blossom into wonderful young beings. Guiding expecting mothers through the trials and tribulations of pregnancy and helping to soothe the after effects of delivery. Finally, it may be looking after a loved one, who’s lived a full life and now wears the aches and pains that come with a life well-lived.

All of these examples are why I’m so delighted the Health and Vitality centre focuses not only on you as the sole contributor to your health, but views family as paramount to your well-being. This ties in beautifully with where I am on my own journey as I’ve returned to the UK now with a little man, who is going to get to thrive and flourish as he grows around loved ones.

Deborah

Massage Therapist

Hi I'm Debs from the HVC Massage Team & I look forward to meeting and caring for you.

Having qualified fourteen years ago, I am knowledgeable and confident in my treatments, whether it’s a soothing relaxing massage or deep tissue massage. I look forward to caring for you to allow your body to feel and function at its optimum.

Massage techniques have the ability to provide relaxation, stimulation and toxin drainage plus improve joint flexibility and movement. Using lotions that are paraben free, anti-allergy, kind and hydrating to the skin help to support the treatment benefiting your skin, as well as the massage looking after your muscles and joints.

I ensure that I look after myself well and have many hobbies that keep me busy and healthy. I enjoy yoga, cycling, great food, reading and singing. It’s important to me to feel good too and use my down time to recharge, I’ll looking forward to meeting you and finding out what’s your favourite pastime .

My belief is that a healthy mind is a healthy body – what we feed both can deliver our goals. This can be done alone, but it’s MUCH tougher and will take way longer! We can all help and support you, as a team, to encourage you to reach your health goals.

Hi my name is Lucy and I’ve recently joined the team as a CA. I’ve always worked in the NHS as a nurse but I’ve decided to step away from stress that comes with that life and focus on mindfulness at the peaceful and tranquil Health and Vitality Centre.

I’m mum to Jack who would now be a toddler. He died in 2017 but I remain his mum by keeping his memory alive. I have 2 dogs and a cat (frank, Nellie and Ronald) who are all nutters. I enjoy gardening, camping with my husband Sam and being with my pets.

Anja

Centre Assistant

Hi, I am Anja. I used to be a journalist and public relations officer,  but decided to have a midlife career change and went to study Naturopathy and Naturopathic Nutrition. I have always loved healthy lifestyle and tried various health enhancing approaches including special fasts and detoxifications, so it was a natural choice to turn my life into the direction of natural health. Working in Health & Vitality Centre is expanding my horizons because I have not been familiar with chiropractice and osteopathy before and I am fascinated by the results they provide in certain conditions. I try to live calm, peaceful and personally fulfilling life as I learned the hard way that 'rat race' can only lead us to exhaustion and eventual burn out. Is it worth it?
