“If there’s one thing that I love most about the body is that we all have an incredible capacity for healing and repair and that by restoring movement and removing nerve interference through Chiropractic, lifestyle advice and specific exercises, in many cases we can provide substantial relief from a number of painful conditions without risking the various side effects associated with taking medications or more invasive procedures.” – Jason Gould

Dr Tara Gibson graduated from world leading Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth and alongside her husband, Jason, opened their clinic in 2007.
Tara loves to work with different types of people and conditions and seeing them get back to what’s important to them. From pre-natal care to adjusting infants immediately after birth to patients that are well into their 90s and beyond, complete family care is her priority.
She has a passion for working with mums and their children, with a special interest in pregnancy and birth. Tara is a member of the International Chiropractic Paediatrics Association (ICPA). Tara also teaches Chiropractors and allied professionals in Chiropractic Care for pregnant mums and their babies and is also certified in the Webster’s Technique.
Although she has always had an interest in this area, since having a home birth with her son, she has developed a much deeper understanding of challenges women can encounter during their pregnancies and births. She believes that with the right support and knowledge we can work towards having more positive birth experiences for both mum and baby.
“The body is amazing, it wants to be healthy! Our jobs as Chiropractors is to remove neurological interference to allow your body to be healthy and work how it was designed to work. When your body can no longer adapt to the stressors we put on it, that’s when ill health or pain happens. I absolutely love seeing someone’s health improve where they can back to doing what they love, whether that’s having a positive birth, playing with the grandkids or getting back to work.” – Tara Gibson
