Victoria Richardson

Victoria graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic with a Masters degree in Chiropractic in 2006. Further study led to her being awarded a Post-Graduate Certificate in Chiropractic Studies, the following year. Since then various courses have been attended, including: Myofascial Dry Needling (Western Acupuncture); Treatment in pregnancy; Paediatrics; Rehabilitation; Soft-tissue techniques and Nutrition.

Victoria developed an interest in the way the body works from a young age through her love of dancing. She became fascinated why some physiques were able to perform movements well, whereas others struggled. A successful visit to a Chiropractor following a severe headache as a teenager strengthened her interest and encouraged her to pursue a career where she could help others suffering in a similar way.
