From a young age I knew I wanted to help people. When I was 15 I went to observe a Chiropractor and was very impressed by the results she was getting. People were very happy with the treatment and I thought I want to do this.
It takes 4 years to train as a Chiropractor plus you then must do a post graduate diploma to then call yourself a Doctor of Chiropractic. It was a tough course but very enjoyable as you knew everything you were learning you needed to know.
After I qualified I first set up a clinic with a friend in Birmingham. We rented two rooms in a health clinic and did really well.
I then decided I would really like to relocate back to Hertfordshire where I grew up so I sold my share of the clinic and started the clinic in Buntingford Herts.
It was daunting setting up a clinic on my own. I was 26, had just got married and was now trying to relocate our house and businesses. I found a shop for rent in Buntingford and it was perfect. We could fit 3 treatment rooms into the building so there was room to grow.
To start with times were hard especially as I had my first child in 2009 just over a year since I had started the clinic so it was not the best time to have to take on an associate. For the next couple of years we made a loss and I remember thinking how long can I go on like this. I knew it had the potential to be successful but trying to juggle children as well was very hard. I am so glad that I stuck at it and over time the clinic started to grow. In 2010 I was awarded a Fellow by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) for the work I had done on the BCA Council.
I was very keen that the clinic had to give patients the best possible experience. I wanted to make sure patients were given a lot of time to discuss their problems and that we could give treatment and exercises without feeling rushed. Patient satisfaction is so important to me.
Now I have a wonderful team of practitioners and receptionists providing the best experience possible for our patients. Everyone is passionate about helping people and we all work so well together. I am so proud of my clinic.
Attend2health is very pleased to announce we have been awarded Best Chiropractic Clinic in East Herts by GHP Private Healthcare Awards 2018.
To win this award patients voted for us and we also had to submit evidence of why we deserved to win this award. This was done back in November and we are so grateful to everyone who took the time to vote for us.
This was my post back in November!
Once all our evidence was also submitted the entries were judged and we found out recently that we had won Best clinic in East Herts! It was lovely to be recognised for all our hard work.
Discussing the success of their winners, Sam Jordan-Turner, GHP Awards Coordinator commented: “As the industry is filled with individuals, teams and companies, we recognise and support all who work tirelessly to provide the best practice and innovation as they strive to provide the highest levels of compassion transforming healthcare for the better.

Attend2Health is very proud that it can help so many people and our 50 Five Star Reviews on both Google and Facebook show how well received we are in the community.
We strive to do the very best we can for our patients. The Clinic was 10 years old back in October and is going from strength to strength with a wonderful team of practitioners. With a staff of 15 people at Attend2Health all working together if one treatment type is not suitable there are many more to try.
Louise explained that when the clinic started in 2007 we were just coming into a recession and times were tough. By concentrating on providing the best possible service the clinic has been able to come through the hard times and flourish into a fantastic place helping to ease peoples pain and provide them with a better quality of life.
If you would like to know more about what we do or how we could help, give the clinic a call on 01763 878087 and book a free chat with one of our practitioners. We look forward to speaking to you.
