Dr Stephen Massey (Doctor of Chiropractic) graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2004 with first class honours. He has continued to study and develop professionally, combining a holistic approach to spinal health with rigorous medical and evidence-based care programmes.
His professional interests include; posture, pregnancy and babies, headaches, cranio-sacral therapy (a very gentle modality that can help to release deep tensions from tissues,) and the use of mind/body therapies to reduce pain, stress and other factors that are essential to treating the complex issues that often underlie back pain. He is also trained in mindfulness and is a fully qualified hypnotherapist.
“Chiropractic for pain relief can be the start of a journey into health and healing. To be honest, getting rid of pain is often quite easy. Relieving stress in the mind and body can be more challenging, and I like to help support people to make the changes they need in order to live life to the full"
Dr Massey, grew up in a medical family; his father and brother are both doctors who have reached pinnacles in their profession. He lived as a monk in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand before working as manager of a retreat centre in the UK. During this period in the 80s he met and was inspired by different healers and healing techniques.
“Sometimes it seems as if there is no common ground between conventional medicine and complementary therapy, but I am comfortable in both worlds and am able to bring you the best of both, setting you on a unique path to healing and harmony.”
