Meet the Family Chiropractic Team

Ashford Chiropractor and Company Director

Chiropractor Ashford, Michael LucasComing from a family that is very much involved in the healthcare industry, I always felt destined to do something within the healing professions. My journey to becoming a chiropractor however, really began as a patient myself. I sustained a very bad whiplash injury after being side-struck by a Volvo (a very well built Volvo I should add) and proceeded to suffer needlessly for several months, trying various treatments without success, before someone advised me to try chiropractic care. Needless to say, the results spoke for themselves, and from that point onward there was no confusion about what I wanted to do for a living.

I graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2007 before moving to Kent to help grow our very popular clinic in Ashford.

Through this centre, I have continued to further develop my skill set and knowledge base, with a particular interest in postural correction and scoliosis management, paediatric care, as well as being a keen educator of my clients in regard to nutrition and general wellness strategies.

I look forward to helping you not only alleviate your symptoms but also open your eyes to the many health benefits that chiropractic has to offer

Collette enjoys being active in her spare time and attends regular spin and fitness classes which complement her regular chiropractic care.
