During the Covid-19 pandemic, Jenny wanted to play her part in healthcare and joined the NHS as part of the Test and Trace team in her role as a clinical caseworker. This has developed Jenny’s understanding of the NHS and its vital role in community healthcare and thus how she can best fit into this model. The communication and safeguarding training has also enhanced her clinical skills enormously.
In addition to her work in Clinic and the NHS, in February 2021 Jenny joined the GCC (general Chiropractic Council) as an examiner on the Test of Competence panel. This panel is used to asses international graduates’ clinical competency to practice in the UK.

Clare is from Leighton Buzzard and lives with her husband and daughter, Polly, who is seven years old. After what can only be described as a mid thirties wobble five years ago, Clare decided life was too short to hate Mondays and retrained in something she could be proud of, loved doing and that can help people. Clare believes in the huge list of benefits that massage can bring to a person's life and thinks it should be accessible and affordable for all. A keen runner, busy mother and having her own mental health challenges Clare understands what positive impact a massage can have on a person's physical and mental health. Massage is a necessity not a luxury.
Clare is a Level 4 qualified Sports Massage Therapist. She is also qualified in Deep Tissue Massage and Myofascial release. Clare has great experience working in multidisciplinary settings, having worked with Physiotherapists and Osteopaths in the past. She has also enjoyed treating her many lovely clients in their homes. We are very excited that Clare has decided to join Aylesbury Vale Chiropractic and I am sure she will be an asset to our patients.
