Tucked away on the tranquil Graylands Estate in Horsham is the home of Weald Chiropractic & Wellness. Established in 2015, it is led by James and Lavina, a husband & wife team.
Lavina says, ‘James qualified as a chiropractor in 2002. At the time I had a career in the City working for an investment bank, but the stress and long working hours took their toll and I needed to make some serious lifestyle changes for my health. I started a course of acupuncture treatment to help manage my symptoms of stress and it was life changing for me. I quit the investment bank and retrained as an acupuncturist and herbalist and haven’t looked back since!’
‘Marriage and children followed and circumstances meant that both James and I worked in different clinics, but we always dreamt about creating a clinic together; a place where we could help members of our community live their lives to the full.’
James continues: ‘When we were finally able to work together, the children were still young and we shared a treatment room at home. This worked well at the beginning, but we worked alternate days and hardly ever saw each other and the children had to tiptoe around the house to ensure they didn’t disturb our patients! It wasn’t ideal, so the search began for premises. Graylands Estate was perfect, as it was five minutes away from home and with free parking outside, our patients were happy to make the move. We also wanted more space. We had a great network of practitioners including massage therapists that we referred our patients to and we wanted to bring everyone under one roof.’
Working with an empty space, James and Lavina had the opportunity to design the unit to their own specifications. The clinic has four spacious treatment rooms in a quiet, calm and relaxing environment.
Lavina says, ‘The reception area gives patients the chance to talk and our receptionists ensure that the information board sparks conversations, so much so that we are shortly launching a series of free health talks and presentations to dive deeper into topics of interest. The new clinic opened 12 days before the first lockdown in March 2020, which wasn’t the opening we had envisaged! However, our community of patients and practitioners has continued to grow ever since.’
‘We have a wealth of experienced practitioners under our roof and offer a great range of services including Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Reflexology, Laser Therapy and Massage Therapy (Sports, Deep Tissue, Therapeutic, Pregnancy and Post-Natal and Scar Tissue Massage). Most importantly, we are focused on helping each and every one of our patients live their best life. So, whether an injury or pain is stopping you from doing the things that you love, the stress of your everyday life is causing anxiety and insomnia, or you feel like you are running on empty, we can help. So get in touch; we love talking all things health!’
