Dr. Graeme Massey
I have always been interested in the human body and health and fitness. From the age of 8 years old as a schoolboy i played for Warrington Schools Rugby League and represented his town in athletics. At the age of 15 years i achieved my first black belt in Karate and became the youngest instructor in the UK at the time. By the age of 22 i had gained my 3rd Dan and was representing England in the sport.
After a period in HM forces the Parachute Regiment i Decided that i needed to embark on a professional career so i decided to get back into education and i achieved my first BSc (Hons) degree from the University of Wales Bangor in 1998 in Sports Science/Kinesiology working along side professional sportsmen.
Although i really enjoyed the laboratory work, i favoured a more clinical setting and working with patients so i changed my career direction from Sports Science to Chiropractic Science, and i enrolled as a student at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth. Along with taking the Gonstead Presidents position for 4 years, i eventually graduated with second BSc (Hons) in Chiropractic Sciences and an MSc in Chiropractic.
In addition to my clinical year spent at the AECC, i regularly took part in many mission trips in El Salvador adjusting/treating thousands of homeless people, military and citizens of San Salvador and Cuba where i not only gained an imense amount of experience but perfected even more so my adjusting skills to the high level expected from a Gonstead Chiropractic Doctor.
I then moved away to America to complete my internship under the guidance of Dr. James Warlick in Phoenix Arizona at one of the busiest Gonstead Chiropractic Clinics in the world. In Addition i also became one of only two Chiropractors in Europe to obtain a Gonstead Extremity Certification (GCEC) in Peoria Illinois U.S.A. (interestingly Dr. C.S. Gonstead was first to pioneer extremity adjusting).
In short the reason why i decided to study Gonstead Chiropractic above any other types of Chiropractic is because i believed it would make me a much better Chiropractor, and secondly because i felt it was the road less taken and was certainly harder to master.
During University and after, i completed every seminar taught by the worlds leading Chiropractors including; Dr’s. Alex Cox, Doug Cox, Jim Stoner, Bill Droessler, Ray Clinton, Larry Troxell, David and Steven Rowe, Mark lopes Steven Tanaka, Jose Lara and Mike Rosenblaum to name but a few. It was thanks to these great Chiropractors influence that i could offer this great technique through the authentic transmissions of its principles from generation to generation.
Finally, my close association in 2003 with Dr. J. P. Meeserman of AC Milan’s Milan Lab and Dr. Bruno Demichelis of Chelsea F.C help my understanding of prevention of injuries in professional footballers and other high profile athletes.
In 2003, i set up Manchester City’s first full time Chiropractic Clinic with the aim of building a solid referral Chiropractic clinic in the North West of England, and to support my good friend Dr Antoni Jackabowski in Harley Street London. My passion for Chiropractic and optimal health is well known throughout the city, which is why is see more referrals than ever. (see testimonies).
Since opening the clinic in 2003, i have become certified by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (CCSP) based in the U.S.A. who are the world leaders in treatment and prevention of sports related injuries in Chiropractic.
In addition to above i have been a British Boxing board of Control Licenced trainer to several professional boxers at European level, and also worked with professional cyclists, the British Heavyweight mixed martial artist, UFC fighters, Premiership footballers, British Professional cyclists, Super league rugby players and professional Golfers.
At present after now 13 + years in private practice most of my spare time is now spent helping to raise my 3 year old Son with my Beautiful Partner Alina, and run my busy practice. My exercise is now limited to Judo, Climbing, Running and Cycling with the odd trip away mountaineering/skiing. I am also half way through climbing all 7 highest summits for the TLC masonic charity on each continent however, this is proving to be harder than i thought not only in effort but time away from my family and practice….lets see what happens ;;)))
