Dr. Hannah Beard -
Doctor of Chiropractic
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.
Hello, I'm Kirsty and I'm very excited to introduce myself as a Wellness Coach with Pure Wellness. I first became aware of the benefits of chiropractic as a child when my dad would regularly visit a chiropractor for a disc herniation and resulting neuropathy. Chiropractic treatment enabled him to continue to work a manual job and achieve a far better standard of life. I began my working life in the finance sector both in my home town of Bournemouth and in London. Although I enjoyed the nature of the work and worked with some fantastic people I didn't feel I was fulfilling my true vocation to directly make a difference to people's lives. After taking a career break to raise my daughters I seized the opportunity to change career paths. I reflected upon my early experience of chiropractic and how it had empowered my dad to live and work even through the most trying points of his back pain and how the profession seemed to suit my personal goals to assist people to live in optimum health and wellbeing.
I undertook an access to healthcare course with Bournemouth and Poole college and subsequently was accepted to train as a chiropractor with the Anglo European College of Chiropractic. I graduated in July 2017 with a Master of chiropractic degree. I really enjoyed the course especially the final year working as a chiropractic intern in the clinic; using the knowledge I had acquired to diagnose and manage clients conditions. I feel so privileged to be in the position to assist people to reach their goals; whether they want to return to sports following an injury or to feel confident running around with the grandchildren.
At weekends my partner, Paul and I and our lively 8 year old twin daughters enjoy family time together going for country and costal walks.
I’m Hollie Pitman and I am excited to introduce myself as a Wellness Coach at Pure Wellness Center.
From a young age I have always been involved in competitive sport which ranged from netball to Horse Riding. This spurred a real interest in the human body and the mechanisms used to perform skills but also the limitations that can influence an athlete. In July 2017, I graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a Sports and Exercise Science degree. My dissertation was based upon athletes' injuries and the psychological processes that they used when rehabilitating and returning to sport. Alongside my degree I experienced a sport massages for the first time and noticed that it made an improvement to my sporting performance over time. I also did a placement in a physiotherapy and sports massage clinic which I found very interesting and this continued my interest in sports massage. I am very determined to continue my learning with Pure Wellness Centre and I hope that in the near future I can achieve a qualification in sports massage. This would help me to allow others to feel how I felt about my performance whether it be within sport or through normal life.
During my spare time I enjoying spending time at the yard and exercising the horses, even in the rain!
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.
Hi , I'm Danny and I would like to welcome you to the functional
fitness facility here at Pure Wellness.
My background in the exercise and wellness field comprises of over 15 years’ experience within a number of sports and leisure operations. I trained initially as a P.E teacher and subsequently decided to combine my
coaching knowledge with the passion for exercise I had acquired since first competing as a weightlifter in my teens.
Having witnessed first hand the limitations of conventional training and nutrition plans, especially those generalized 'one size' fits all
approaches, I sought to educate myself in as extensive manor as possible and apply a more rounded approach to the work I do with clients. As such and in an effort to maximize outcomes for each individual, I have regularly referred clients out to complimentary practitioners, indeed it was through one such practitioner that I gained a huge insight into the benefits of Chiropractic care whilst I was living and working in Japan.
I continue to study with a number of prestigious organisations such as the CHEK institute and other leading figures within the wellness community. I look forward to being able to pass on some of the knowledge I have acquired in order to help you on your own journey toward better health and well-being.
