Chiropractor & Director
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 thirteen 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 as well as being Paula’s husband.
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, this year I completed the three peaks challenge, I couldn’t have done it without with my chiropractic care!
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!
I love personal development and learning – something which I practice daily. My interests include Pilates, volunteer work, horse riding, skiing, natural health and 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.
Hi, I’m Georgie, my passion for health and wellbeing is what has led me to where I am today; my aim being to make sure you have the best functioning body tailored to your lifestyle.
I am always striving to learn new practices that will offer another way of treating problem areas. I studied at the London School of Soft tissue Therapy to get my level 5 qualification in sports and remedial massage. In addition I am also qualified in medical acupuncture and kinesiology taping. Finally I am also a qualified personal trainer, as you can tell, health and wellbeing is very important to me!
Before I started my career in the health and wellbeing industry, I was a professional Alpine ski racer competing internationally for Great Britain. Training at this high level is when I discovered the benefits of massage, and the power it had to ease my stresses and relax my muscles and help me understand my body more. This then led to me moving careers to help others get out of pain and understand their bodies.
Hi, I’m Amy and I’ve recently joined the team as a massage therapist.
I graduated from the University of Salford with a First Class Hons. degree in Sport Rehabilitation. There I studied human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, assessment of musculoskeletal conditions/injuries and exercise rehabilitation along with soft tissue therapies such as sports massage.
Whilst studying I gained experience working alongside the physiotherapists at professional rugby league club Widnes Vikings. This involved lots of massage and mobilisation techniques to help the players return to play. I also spent time on a Trauma and Orthopaedic placement observing surgeries such as hip/knee replacements which were fascinating!
I’m really excited to be part of such a caring team here at the centre and cannot wait to help as many of you as I can with your voyage to a happier and healthier life!
My name is Alannah, I am one of the fantastic massage therapists here at the Health and Vitality Centre
To give you my professional background I graduated in July 2018 in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation (BSc) from the University of Bedfordshire. During my degree I completed my Personal Training Qualification (Level 3). This has enabled me to progress and gain experience within various gym settings, specialising in injury management, sports massage and individual training programmes.
I am currently completing my Master’s Degree in Sports Rehabilitation at Middlesex University London. This has been a busy, valuable and exciting year allowing me to work with American women’s rugby team in December 2018. I have also been lucky enough to work with Para Athletes in preparation for the Championship Games in Dubai in March of this year.
Personally, I have a keen interest in keeping healthy through good nutrition and practicing what I preach within my own fitness. I push myself as much as my clients and believe in having fun at the same time.
I feel passionate about helping our guests improve their quality of life and reach their individual full potential. Working with individuals and design a programme for them which is hard work, achievable and most importantly enjoyable.
I looking forward to meeting you all and working with you to achieve your goals.
