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!
Hello, I’m Maia!
I’m a Brighton girl through and through, and after a stint at university in Manchester and 6 months travelling around the Middle East I’ve come back home and couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Back 2 Balance team.
My previous work experience has mostly been in hospitality and customer service, but I’ve always been interested in chiropractic and its benefits (I love watching adjustment videos online!)
Working in an environment with such positive, like-minded people has been a joy. From my first day here I knew this was the place for me and I can’t wait to continue my Back 2 Balance journey.
In my spare time I love cooking, going to yoga classes, performing in musical theatre and walking my dog Nelson!
