Dr Jason Gould started his career with a degree in Pharmacology and soon realised that it was not so much medications that inspired him, rather it was the reward of helping people and seeing them get better. In order to do that, Jason chose Chiropractic as his career then broadened his work more widely into the world of wellbeing.
This has now culminated in his book, Thrive, which enables you to dramatically reduce the stresses of everyday life, enabling you to thrive instead of simply surviving each day. The book shows you in simple steps how to master your health and optimise your vitality.
Jason worked at a number of clinics after graduating from the world-leading Chiropractic college, AECC (Anglo European College of Chiropractic), then he and his wife Tara set up their own practice in 2007. They’ve built it into an award-winning, family-centric pillar of the community that provides excellent chiropractic care along with other health-related services such as massage, and client workshops on headaches, mind mastery matrix, coping with stress and anxiety, and more.
At the same time, Jason researches and works on other aspects of wellness, teaches Chiropractors at colleges and in groups, delivers training seminars to other healthcare professionals and is a keynote speaker at events for businesses and other organisations.
He has a special interest in sports injuries and his work maintains health and enhances performance for elite athletes, professionals and weekend warriors in golf, rugby, tennis, football, martial arts and many more sports, including the England karate squad.
As well as some well-known faces on the testimonials page, you’ll see tributes from patients of all ages, from the parents of newborns to people in their 90s, because his heartfelt passion for helping people and seeing them get better is growing with experience.
Jason says: “If there’s one thing that I love most about the body is that we all have an incredible capacity for healing and repair. We can provide substantial relief from a number of painful conditions by restoring movement and removing nerve interference through Chiropractic, along with lifestyle advice and specific exercises. And this is without risking the side effects associated with medications or more invasive procedures.”

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

Dr Rebekah Tho, DC knew from a young age that helping people to thrive in life was the avenue she wished to pursue. Having studied for her Bachelor of Science degree, she found chiropractic after seeing her sister achieve great results for herself and her family.
The principle that underpins her approach is firstly to look at the cause of symptoms that people experience and why they are being expressed though the body. The body has a remarkable ability to heal itself if there is no interference and so looking at overall function is her main approach.
Dr Rebekah Tho was born in Malaysia, but actually grew up in Papua New Guinea. She graduated with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science from the University of Queensland in Australia and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College in the USA. She then returned to Australia and spent 4 years in the beautiful coastal town of Bowen in North Queensland, looking after families of all ages. She then moved to Brisbane where she spent the next 6 years studying and working with people of all ages in a family based practice. She has built a particular interest in paediatric care, pregnancy and women’s health. Dr Rebekah Tho has a passion for newborns and all the way through to the elderly. Her overall aim is to help people get well and ultimately stay well.
Her journey now brings her to Kent where she lives with her husband and she is happy to call Chislehurst Chiropractic Clinic her new home.
Outside of the practice, Dr Rebekah loves to spend time with her friends and family. She enjoys playing netball and tennis, watching all sports, being by the beach in the sun and having good food with great company!
