Meet The Team
The clinical team:
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.
Ben Leamon is a fully qualified GOsC registered Osteopath, ITEC level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage and Foundation Degree in Sports Therapy.
Osteopathy can treat and help a range of ailments including but not limited to:
Joint pain e.g. Neck, shoulder and back
Muscular related headaches
Muscle spasms and tension
Ben qualified as a sports massage therapist in 2013, since then he has been treating clients for muscle tension, especially before and after sporting events. After achieving a foundation degree in sports therapy in 2014, Ben was able to start treating more patients for sports related injuries – working with a number of sports teams and individuals.
Ben decided to complete an integrated Masters Degree in Osteopathic medicine and qualified in 2017, and has since been working in a number of clinics around Surrey and East Sussex.
Since he was 16 Ben has been interested in injuries, the human body and helping people with their injuries whether it was a sports, or day to day related injury. He worked in a leisure centre for 5 years and enjoyed giving advice to people who came to the gym or to the swimming pool about injuries they may have been dealing with or rehabilitating through exercise.
Ben also enjoys volunteering at charity events and has volunteered at events such as the London marathon and ride London.
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!
I discovered chiropractic when I was a teenager after suffering for months with severe headaches. I was amazed to have found such relief through such a simple treatment. The approach was very thorough and my whole wellbeing was taken into account throughout. It inspired me to become a chiropractor myself in order to help other people in the same way!
I graduated from AECC University College with a Masters degree in Chiropractic and moved from my hometown of Bournemouth to Brighton.
I have undertaken qualifications in dry needling and taping methods.
I have a special interest in chiropractic paediatrics and pregnancy. I really enjoy helping pregnant mothers and supporting them through their pregnancy and birth as well as helping babies to develop and grow.
I believe in treating the root cause of the problem as well as preventing problems instead of curing. I focus on strengthening the spine and body to allow people to progress towards a more fulfilling, pain free life and making sure they don’t revert back to where they began.
Back 2 Balance has an amazing vibe and we ensure everyone is cared for and well looked after. I am so happy to be part of an amazing team working together towards the same purpose!

Hello, I’m Ella!
I’m a Brighton girl born and bred. I love my job at Back2balance, It’s like a big family here! I am a fully qualified Beauty therapist, Makeup artist and Massage therapist however I love having things organised and that’s why I love working front of house.
Before I joined Back2balance I knew very little about Chiropractic and Osteopathic care however, it’s safe to say now I am definitely hooked! I have been notorious for having really tight and sore shoulders due to slightly poor posture and I’ve always just brushed it under the carpet, but that’s definitely not the case anymore. It’s amazing! Also as soon as I walked through the doors at Back2balance I knew I would love it here, not to be biased here but we have such a lovely team and the client care here is second to none.
In my spare time I love keeping active, but on the flip side I love a meal out. So I have the best of both worlds really!
Hi, I’m Gina!
I am originally from Dorset and moved to Brighton in 2001. Apart from a few years that I lived in Florida, I have been in Brighton ever since.
Hi, I’m Taylor!
I originally grew up in Reading, and moved down to Brighton about 3 years ago. Although I’ve only lived in this city a short while, it really feels like home! I love the community and the fact that there’s always something going on.
I’ve always worked in healthcare, and although I’m not a clinician, it’s always satisfying knowing that you’ve contributed to helping make someone’s life a little better! As long as clinicians need someone to rely on, I’ll always be around. I’ve really enjoyed my time so far at Back2Balance, and have never been part of such a welcoming and energetic team!
In my spare time, I’m usually travelling; no matter how close or far, I love visiting new places! I also usually visit Turkey quite a lot, as that’s where my family are from (the upgrade in weather doesn’t hurt either!).
