Dr. Hannah Beard -
I'm Dr. Hannah Beard and my journey into Chiropractic started when I was aged just 14 years old when i went to see a Chiropractor for the first time after suffering repetitive groin injuries during hockey matches. I was amazed by the thorough and detailed examination and report the Chiropractor gave to me as it explained that the problem was actually coming from hyper-pronation in my foot which was resulting in a misalignment in my pelvis and abnormal function in the muscles of my groin. This instantly sparked my interest in the human body and how the root cause of a problem isn't necessarily where the symptoms lie.
I studied for 4 years at the Anglo-European College of chiropractic to gain my Masters Degree in Chiropractic and a passion for healing and helping people of all ages. After finishing my degree I went back to my home town Oldham , Manchester to work with the same Chiropractor that had helped me all those years ago. After helping the community of Oldham for over 3 years with conditions such as Low back pain , Neck pain , headaches and shoulder impingement I moved back down to Bournemouth where I studied to start a new venture in my own wellness practice.
As a Chiropractor I believe that to have optimal healing and function you need a healthy and functioning nervous system and to achieve that , the spine which protects the nervous system , needs to be in alignment allowing full nerve flow. This then helps the body heal conditions such as low back pain , neck pain and headaches but for me I wasn't helping people enough. Many of my clients would get great relief from their pain but still struggled with their weight , loss of energy , lack of sleep and increasing doses of medications for heart conditions and diabetes. Although I gave them advice to help with these symptoms and conditions many of them seemed to 'forget' or they 'didn't have time' so for me i knew I had to do more and give people more than what I was already doing. From this Pure Wellness was born , a centre that allows to people
to really reach their optimum health potential by giving them the resources , support and knowledge to have a functioning and healthy nervous system , the right nutrition and physical exercise and a healthy state of mind all under one roof.

Massage has been practiced and proven to have profound benefits on all of the bodies systems and your mental wellbeing and when combined with a holistic approach to lifestyle results can be dramatic. My name is Claire and I have always been a believer in the healing power of touch. I was a considerate daughter and would often massage my Mothers feet after she came in from work and like to think that my love of holistic health and healing began early on. My own personal journey with health issues has also been helped through massage and self-care practices. During a career break following the birth of my second child I decided to follow my natural inclination towards wanting to help heal people by gaining my Diploma in Swedish Massage. To date I’ve had a varied career path including working with the most vulnerable people in society either through care work or teaching. I’m also a Reiki Level 2 practitioner and often find combining physical touch therapy with energy work most effective as the mind and body are intertwined and what effects one will always effect the other. I’m happy to welcome you today and look forward to helping you achieve a more balanced healthy mind and body.

Hello, I'm Marie and am really happy to say that I'm a Wellbeing Assistant at Pure Wellness.
Due to an unexplained illness a few years ago I became very interested and aware of my own body and wellbeing. And after being diagnosed, it became very apparent just how beneficial taking ownership of my own wellbeing was, both to my overall health and the management of symptoms; giving me a much better quality of life!
At this point I decided to change direction career wise. And within a short period was very fortunate to become a member of the Pure Wellness Team.
In my spare time I love spending time with my two daughters who now live in London, along with going on walks with my husband, experiencing new places and eating lovely food with friends!!

Hi I'm Nicole and I am a fully qualified level 3 Sports Massage Therapist. I qualified in the use of Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM) as well as holding a Level 3 diploma in Anatomy and Physiology.
I have always had a huge passion and interest in health, fitness and mental wellbeing and so I decided to join the fitness industry in 2018 as a Level 2 fitness instructor to share this passion with others. During this time I was leading group exercise classes I began to realise that people needed further support. I found that some of my clients range of movement was limited, others were recovering from sports or training injuries or simply day to day stresses were causing mobility issues. I felt so much empathy and a need to help that I decided to become a Sports Massage Therapist to get people back doing what they love.
When i'm not in the clinic you will find her focusing on my own training at the local Crossfit gym or taking my dog Freddie for a walk.
