“That night after my adjustment with you, I slept for 12 hours straight – uninterrupted bliss.”

Difficulty falling asleep? Staying asleep? Or poor quality of sleep? These are the 3 questions I ask around sleep in a wellness model. They each mean something slightly different in my opinion.

Specific upper neck adjusting is great for sleep. The day/night cycle is regulated by the brainstem and having one’s atlas adjusted has a huge impact on this. I’ve lost count of the number of times mums have said their child has either fallen asleep in the car on the way home or slept for hours and hours later that day.

Dear Neil

I wanted to thank you for your compassionate, gentle and non-judgemental chiropractic care for me.

As you well know, I tend to have quite an emotive response to adjustments, and even now I equate chiropractic care with a rush of feel-good relief and release. I find when my spine is in alignment, my thinking and emotive responses are balanced and centred too.

I will never forget my first visit: after suffering from many many weeks of awful insomnia, that night after my adjustment with you, I slept for 12 hours straight – uninterrupted bliss – and then over the course of the next week and a half, slept deeply and woke refreshed daily. Also, under your care, that has remained the case.

My other physical complaints were lower back pain and the occasional neck twinges, both of which your care has shifted, allowing me the freedom and flexibility to dance for many many more hours… hahahah.

I love that you are an unassuming and endless source of information and that you have invested such passion into your practice. I also find it admirable that you yourself are under constant chiropractic care, so you are living what you teach.

The gadgets are genuinely fascinating too – and a great way to read one’s progress and state of being.

As a client, I leave restored and with renewed resolve to continue investing in my health.

And last but by no means least, I want to acknowledge the warm, open and engaging manner with which Pip interacts with clients and sets the mood of the practice. The easy and relaxed atmosphere create a space which is pure pleasure to return to again and again.

Many blessings on you both and the work you do.

With love and gratitude,

Interested in a complimentary chat at the practice?
