“Happiness is the highest form of health” The Dalai Lama
We were born to be happy. That’s my absolute belief.
Long or short term neck or back pain and headaches can make you feel pretty miserable and that’s certainly what I see when a new patient comes to me. They’re in so much pain they feel agitated and grumpy, thoroughly fed up and unpleasant to live with – to be honest their spouse has often been the one to book them in!
They’ll have an initial appointment with me and when they return for the next appointment they walk in with a smile! They’ll say “I can’t believe the difference! I’ve not stopped smiling all weekend!”
And that is why I decided to name my business Smile Health.
I’m Jane and I’m a chiropractor based in Alnwick and Berwick. I help people get out of pain and live healthier, happier lives.
Now, I haven’t always been a chiropractor, I previously worked in engineering before I had twins and my husband’s job saw us relocate to the Northumberland coast. In my early twenties I had suffered an acute episode of back pain and a nurse friend advised me to see a chiropractor pronto. I did this and never looked back! Wherever we lived I sought out a chiropractor and was treated regularly even throughout my pregnancy. I decided I’d like to train as a chiropractor “one day” but it wasn’t until the twins were at school that I was actually able to do this. I qualified in 2004 from McTimoney College of Chiropractic and I still use this very gentle and holistic technique alongside Activator Instrument technique. I love being able to do something where I know I can help not just boost someone’s health, but their happiness too!
