LEE TAYLOR

DC MChiro MBCA LRCC (Sport)

Doctor of Chiropractic

Lee is a Doctor of Chiropractic and Director of Twickenham Chiropractic Health Centre. Since graduating from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic he has worked in and around London, including Harley Street.

Lee was first introduced to chiropractic after sustaining a low back injury playing rugby. Not only did the treatment relieve his pain but it also helped to prevent recurrent hamstring injuries that he was plagued with for many years. As a result of the treatment and the benefits he felt, Lee decided to pursue a career as a chiropractor.

Lee enjoys treating a wide range of patients and he tailors his care to best suit the individual and achieve optimal results.

As a result of working with a variety of different athletes, Lee has been able to reduce pain, encourage performance and maintain optimal functional movement to help prevent future injuries.

As well as his chiropractic adjusting and joint manipulative skills Lee enjoys utilising other treatment modalities, such as dry needling, instrument assisted soft tissue techniques, active release techniques, kinesiology taping and others soft tissue techniques to best suit the individual and achieve optimal results. Lee is also proficient in the use of Radial Shockwave Therapy, for chronic pain and tendinopathy. As a result of his own positive experience with Shockwave Therapy for shoulder impingement and tendinosis he decided to invest in one of the best Shockwave machines on the market to help achieve fantastic and long term results. Lee is constantly striving to further his knowledge and develop his expertise by attending a wide variety of seminars and lectures.

Outside of work, fitness plays a big part of Lee’s spare time where he can often be found training at Blitz CrossFit gym in Twickenham. Lee’s favourite hobby though is spending as much time with his wife and young son Freddie as he can.

Emily has always been interested in a career in healthcare. While working towards her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in her hometown of Ottawa, Emily worked in a variety of roles at the Ottawa Hospital. Her interests in evidence-based medicine led her to a career in public health research with a focus on improving community health.

HELEN MURAWSKA

MSc BSc ISM

Sports Rehabilitation Therapist

Helen graduated from her MSc in Sports Rehabilitation Therapy in 2012 and has been working not only with athletes but with the general population since then. Having worked with sports teams and the Royal Marines, she now often works with desk-based professionals who still want to be very active in their spare time.

Helen‘s passion for getting people back to their sports and leisure activities after pain and injuries came about through her own experiences in sport and exercise and she believes that regardless of whether or not you do sport, you should be able to get through a day pain-free!

Having recently completed a year-long course in the Integrated Systems Model with Diane Lee, Helen has discovered a keen interest in women’s health, especially in the post-partum population. The Integrated Systems Model allows the therapist to consider all aspects of the body, including how internal scar tissue, old injuries, or posture might be contributing to your pain. Considering all aspects of the body’s systems has proved invaluable in determining the root cause of chronic pain and repetitive injuries.

As well as using various soft tissue techniques including hands-on work, acupuncture, and taping, Helen also believes that correcting movement patterns is imperative to recovery and will expect you to take a small active part between appointments to achieve this.

Helen is truly passionate about her work, but in her free time also loves taking part in anything active and has taken part in CrossFit competitions, triathlons, and various other races. She has also played tennis and rugby at county level and loves to challenge herself. She is planning on completing her first Ironman race with her husband for their first anniversary!

LAUREN QUINLAN

Lauren is very passionate about her work and helps people from all walks of life whether it’s with a sports injury, to assist with rehab or for general ‘maintenance’. Lauren strongly believes that everybody can benefit from soft tissue therapy due to her own previous experiences. Lauren decided to pursue a career in Sports Massage after suffering a few minor muscular injuries and found massage really helped to assist in her recovery. Lauren is now able to help others overcome similar issues and encourage their sport/exercise performance.

Lauren uses a number of techniques in her treatment and will tailor them to meet her clients needs, whether this be a calming massage or a deep tissue massage; she will use a variety of techniques such as soft tissue release, muscle energy technique, myofascial release, stretching, neuromuscular technique or postural assessments to achieve the best possible results.

In her spare time, she enjoys keeping active at Blitz CrossFit and Yogahaven Richmond so she can enjoy eating chocolate guilt-free! She is also a massive dog lover and tends to be the doggy sitter for most of her friends!

CHRISTINA HAGON

Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist

Christina has been a Massage Therapist for over 10 years. She first trained as a deep tissue therapist and, after her first child, went on to do pregnancy massage after experiencing the benefits herself of having massage treatment during her own pregnancy.

In 2013 she qualified as a Sports Massage Therapist from St. Mary’s University and now provides more advanced treatments including soft tissue release, stretching and muscle energy techniques. She combines some treatments, where appropriate, with Medical Acupuncture/Dry Needling which she feels, gives an effective alternative to help release tight muscle bands.

She has worked with people from all walks of life including individuals with a sporting background (CrossFitters, marathon runners, triathletes, rowers, rugby players etc) to individuals requiring post operation care or injury management, disabled people, as well as people needing sports massage for general tensions and aches from stress or pressures of everyday life.

When not at work Christina enjoys spending time with her two boys and going for long walks with their dog – the muddier the better! She is also mad about CrossFit and loves yoga. She has enjoyed a number of different sporting challenges over the years including running a marathon, doing sprint triathlons and competing in CrossFit competitions.
