Meet The Team

The clinical team:

Rebecca Nicholas

DC, MChiro, PGCert Chiro, mRCC

Doctor Of Chiropractic & Clinic Director

I have been raised with a chiropractic ‘natural first’ philosophy and whilst growing up was shown how important nutrition, sleep, exercise and the outdoors was.

Following in my family tradition, I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth with a Masters degree in Chiropractic before moving back to my home town and first love, Brighton. I have undertaken a post-graduate certificate in paediatrics and take a special interest in chiropractic paediatrics and pregnancy. I have since completed qualifications to use dry needling and Activator techniques, plus the Webster technique and cranial and visceral techniques which really help support the baby and pregnant mother.

I believe that prevention is always better than the cure. I especially like to remind the younger population to not dismiss their problems but get them looked at, preventing many ongoing health issues later in life.

I acquired the Clinic during 2007 and continue to treat my mother’s, Cornelia Nicholas’ patients, having since retired.

Megan Rogerson

Osteopath

I grew up riding horses, I had a horse with back problems and after getting an osteopath out to see her I was so inspired that I knew straight away I wanted to be an osteopath. I felt the holistic approach to care osteopathy offers to both humans and animals is invaluable. I gained my Master’s degree at the University College of Osteopathy in London.

Being an osteopath has helped me realised the importance of trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. This guided me to eat healthily and enjoy exercise which led to an improved overall feeling of wellbeing. I like to encourage my clients to make these changes in their life through supporting them with osteopathy and giving advice on how to achieve this.

I am passionate about how beneficial osteopathic care is in relieving pain, rehabbing and then making sure clients never revert back to how they were when they first visited us. Also, in using it as a preventative measure to help the body work in the best way possible way and making sure clients never have problems.

When looking for a job I visited many different clinics, however none were as busy and as vibrant as Back2Balance. With a great team that puts client wellbeing at the top of the priority list (even throwing client appreciation parties) I knew I would fit right in. I love working here!

Viron

Chiropractor

My chiropractic journey started when I serendipitously came across The 4 Hour Body by Tim Ferriss.

After reading about the renowned healing abilities of Dr.Craig Buhler, a chiropractor based in the United States, I decided to take a leap of faith and see if he could help me overcome severe chronic injuries I sustained as a conscript in the Singapore army. This is after trying many things including stretching, painkillers and acupuncture to no avail.

So I packed my bags, flew halfway across the world and spent an entire week with Dr.Buhler. By the end of the week, I could bend over and touch my toes for the first time in 5 years! It was then that I knew I had found my life’s path.

On Dr.Buhler’s recommendation, I enrolled in Palmer College of Chiropractic, the first chiropractic school.

Despite being out of school for only a few years, I continue to be an ardent student of all things chiropractic. I constantly learn from the best of the profession to provide the highest standard of care possible.

My most profound takeaway as a chiropractor? Never underestimate the body’s ability to heal. To that end, I say “Expect Miracles” when you receive chiropractic care.

I visited Back2Balance one fine day and was totally blown away by how friendly, warm and welcoming everyone was. Even though I physically left when it was time, my heart has remained ever since.

Adam

Massage Therapist

My name is Adam and I am from Yorkshire but have been lucky enough to call Brighton my hometown for the last 13 years (with a few of those spent travelling around Australia, Canada and the Philippines). I originally moved here to attend the University of Brighton where I graduated with a degree in Business Management but a lack of passion for working in the business world. I ended up starting a career as a telecommunications rigger; a role which consists of climbing towers to install antennas for mobile phone systems. After 10 years of rigging, I was becoming dissatisfied with the role as I didn’t feel like I was helping people (which is a passion of mine) and although it helped me buy a flat in Seven Dials the only other thing I was getting out of it was a bad back!

Due to the pains in my back and a long history of slouching I have seen many massage therapists in my life and none but one of them took the time to explain to me which muscles were dysfunctional and come up with a plan to recovery as well as offering a high quality, remedial yet relaxing massage. After the first treatment I asked where they trained and within a month signed myself up to a Soft Tissue Therapy course at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) under the guidance of Mel Cash; a leading authority on the subject who literally wrote the book on Sports Massage. Although based in Sports Massage, the course is now aimed at helping all people who have a plethora of aches, pains or injuries and is always focused on treating the person, not just the problem.

Little did I know when signing up to do the course that I would be discovering a vocation that I love. Over the next 12 months I learnt a variety of techniques that can be applied to most musculoskeletal issues as well as the anatomy and physiology of the human body. I love that as a Soft Tissue Therapist I have the ability to work with people towards living a healthier life, with a healthier body and in a relatively short period of time being able to change someone’s day, week, month or life; it is truly a privilege and I look forward to a lifetime of growth and learning that helps me continually improve.

Ciara

Massage Therapist
Hi everyone, my name’s Ciara and I’m so excited to be working at Back2Balance. I have a background in biological sciences and science education. My drive to combine my scientific background with my love for fitness and holistic health led me to a career in Holistic and Sports Massage Therapy. I have worked with a range of clients including runners and sports teams. As soon as I stepped foot in Back2Balance I immediately felt the warmth, energy and passion of everyone working here, and I knew it was something I wanted to be part of. My favourite thing about being a Sports Massage Therapist is getting to know lots of different people every day and feeling like I can make a difference to their health and wellbeing. It is such a varied field and there are many different areas I want to develop my practice in. I love being part of the team at Back2Balance as I feel like I am learning and growing every day, plus it’s great to go to work and be surrounded by such great clients and colleagues!

Clinic Assistants:

Abi

Clinical Assistant

Hello! I’m Abi!

I have just moved to Brighton & Hove from London and am absolutely loving it so far.

I moved to London 9 years ago to study musical theatre at drama school. After graduating I pursued performing and have had some incredible jobs… some of my favourites include singing as a soloist at the Royal Albert Hall and being a principal role in the musical Nice work if you can get it. A tap show! My favourite! After Covid I decided to qualify as a singing teacher and to start my own private teaching business. Singing is my true passion and teaching is just so rewarding. I am excited to be joining the B2B team! I love meeting the lovely clients, learning more about health and well being and seeing how the B2B team really helps their clients.

Anne

Clinical Assistant

I have lived and worked in my hometown of Brighton and Hove for many years. Health and wellbeing is my passion and I have worked in the wellness sector for over 15 years in a local therapy centre, helping and supporting the local community, and previously worked with young children in local schools teaching fitness and nutrition.

I love helping people and have found it very rewarding to see how natural healing can benefit everyone on their journey to wellbeing. I’m so happy to have recently joined the Back2Balance team as it has such an energetic and positive vibe, and I enjoy meeting all the lovely clients.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my large family, practicing yoga and aerobics, walking, dancing, and travelling.

Nicola

Clinical Assistant

So happy to be a part of the Back2Balance team! I’m a local Hove resident, and have recently had a big career shift – which was actually prompted after starting chiropractic care! 

I previously worked as a TV Producer Director, which was very demanding and stressful at times. I had been struggling with neck pain for years and finally had to give in and take time off to try and recover. 

After seeing a chiropractor and feeling the incredible benefits, I made the move into a career more based around holistic wellness, and joining the Back2Balance team has been a part of that! I’m learning so much about the nervous system which is an area I’m very passionate about, and a big part of why I wanted to join the team. 

Look forward to getting to know you all!

Matt

Tech Clinical Assistant

Hi, my name is Matt and I love my sports and producing, creating and listening to music.

I started my Back2Balance journey at the tail end of 2020 to help with my long term sport related injuries. I have been interested and learnt all about the science of the body in a sport orientated way since I was 14 doing my GCSE’s and doing PE as one of them. Since then it has only been up in my journey to learn all about the physical, social and mental health of athletes and sports performers.

Back2Balance has allowed my passion for this to thrive and always grow from the very start of my journey here!

I am studying Sports Therapy at the University Of Essex in Colchester in 2024 and coming to Back2Balance was a no brainer for me. It is a very helpful and worthwhile investment to be working at this lovely clinic as I can get a real hands on experience with clients and have a taste of what my uni studies and life post uni will be like for me. U have had many thoughts of where I would like Sports Therapy could take me with contacts in the FA or into the Royal Marines, a dream of mine from a young age.

As a part of the Back2Balance team I will be running scans and tests for new and current clients, front desk duties and being an extra set of hands around this beautiful clinic.

Lois

Clinical Assistant

My name is Lois I’m 27 and I am a born and raised Brightonian! I left Brighton for music university at 19, but because I’m a bit of a workaholic, ended up pursuing a career in the club and pub trade. Which kept me busy busy, and at the time I loved that lifestyle. 

As I got older I found I greatly missed my family living near London and music, so I moved back pre-covid, and finished my music studies. 

Since then I have been looking to find myself new challenges, opportunities of growth, and a career which best suits who I am now and who I aspire to be, in the world of health. – Enter Back To Balance and Chiropractics! I still love to write a good tune in my free time though.

I’m extremely excited to be beginning my new journey here, I love helping and supporting people be their best selves which is clearly something very much shared with my new colleagues at the clinic and our lovely leader Rebecca.
