Oliver Smith is a Sports Therapist, who graduated from the University of Bedfordshire with a BSc Hons Degree in Sports Therapy in 2015. He then went on to complete his personal training qualification, which he uses in combination with his degree to provide the best treatment possible.
Since graduation Oliver has worked with several clubs and teams across a variety of sports to hone his skills and provide injury rehabilitation and sports massage during their seasons. Whilst working within these sport teams he has also worked in multi-disciplinary clinics providing sports massage and rehabilitation for his patients, of mixed ages and injury severity.
Oliver is a great lover of sports and fitness. In his spare time, he loves to train in the gym working on his strength and conditioning. He says “Through suffering from my own injuries in sports and exercise, it has given me a passion to help others to keep doing the things which they love and stay healthy both physically and mentally.”
Originally from Welwyn Garden City, Ashleigh graduated from the prestigious AECC University College in Bournemouth with a first class integrated master’s degree in chiropractic. She is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and the British Chiropractic Association and was awarded full membership of the Royal College of Chiropractors in 2019.
Having always been interested in health and fitness from a young age, Ashleigh competed at a county- national level in tennis, swimming, biathlon, middle- distance running and cross country. Ashleigh injured her knee at the age of 16 and struggled to find anyone who could help her until she found chiropractic. The help and support she gained from the profession made her want to study to become a chiropractor herself so she could foreseeably help others who are in pain like she was.
Ashleigh loves treating patients of all ages and uses a combination of techniques including joint manipulation and mobilisation, soft tissue work, dry needling, taping methods and exercise rehabilitation/ stretching and tailors this to every patient she sees.
She believes that it is important to not only treat the symptoms, but to also figure out the cause of the problem so that it can be prevented from coming back in the future.
Alongside sport and chiropractic, Ashleigh enjoys catching up with friends and family, travelling and eating out!

Amanda originally graduated from De Montfort University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology of Human Communication and French. She has since qualified as a hypnotherapist (Cert Hyp CS) and is able to offer a variety of treatments, in particular for anxiety and chronic pain.
Amanda takes a “working together” approach in her sessions and considers hypnotherapy to be one of the most empowering therapies there is. She says “I lay the groundwork to enable the client to make the changes they require, opposed to making the change happen myself. Ultimately the only person who can change their perspective and make things happen is the individual themselves. The more open the individual is to the possibilities hypnotherapy can offer; the more hypnotherapy can offer the individual.”

I am Jethro Rowland, an acupuncturist and Chinese medical herbalist. I have been practising TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) for about thirty years.
I first became interested in acupuncture and Oriental medicine in the early 80s when I became interested in eastern philosophy. I then spent a lot of time travelling in the far East and Australia where my interest in complementary medicine and in particular acupuncture and Oriental medicine began to grow. I was particularly attracted to the holistic idea of treating the whole person and not just the symptoms and addressing the root cause of the issue. When I returned to the UK I began a course of study at the London School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (LSATCM) later Westminster University, and qualified in 1991. I then went on to study Chinese Herbal Medicine at the London Academy of Oriental Medicine and qualified in 1995.
Ever since I have worked full time as a TCM practitioner in London and Hertfordshire. I have a very wide range of experience in treating many conditions. I specialise in addiction and work as a consultant practitioner at Resolve drug and alcohol centre in Hertfordshire. I have undergone considerable training in the treatment of addiction to alcohol, substance misuse, and prescribed medication. I also specialise in skin disorders, stress and anxiety and gynaecological disorders.
I am a member of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ATCM) which is one of the three main professional associations that govern the practice of acupuncture and herbal medicine in the UK.

Sarah Jayne Baker has been a Tai Chi Practitioner for more than 35 years, trained through the Bryan Nuttall and John Reed – with direct lineage to Li Deyin a founding master of the Beijing Short Form.
Sarah Jayne teaches the many principles and applications with a dash of fun and shows direct links between this ancient “soft” martial art and everyday life with practical ways to use Tai Chi in the modern world – not just something to practice in class.
At is simplest Tai Chi is a falls prevention system, teaching students how to gain confidence in movement through creating stability. Gaining understanding of the form and philosophy it is built upon, leads to the understanding “motion is lotion”, and Tai Chi is a powerful low impact, strength building, gentle exercise that also brings mindfulness to those studying.
At it’s most complex Tai Chi is considered a complete health system that improves lung function, mental health and improves internal organ health too, all while being simply focussed on slow precise movement.

‘Having discovered the benefits of Pilates 10 years ago, and progressing to an advanced level over the past 7 years with the help of Body Control Pilates teachers’, I decided to enrol myself on a matwork teaching course with Body Control Pilates. Body Control Pilates teacher training course is the most comprehensive of its kind in the world and is widely seen as an international benchmark. Following completion of their extensive and rigorous matwork course I qualified as a Pilates Level 3 Matwork teacher in September 2021. Since then I’ve also completed a course in bone health enabling me to teach people with Osteoporosis and Osteopenia.
The Body Control Pilates teaching method will help you rebalance your body – achieving the perfect balance of strength and flexibility. Pilates will help you find, understand and maintain better posture, you will learn how to breathe more efficiently and improve your core stability. By targeting the deep postural muscles of your body, you will literally build strength from the inside out. Perfect for athletes looking to enhance their performance and minimise the risk of injury, Pilates is also ideal for first-time exercisers of all ages. ‘
