A member of the United Chiropractic Association and the scottish chiropractic association , she is registered on the General Chiropractic Council and opened Reco Chiropractic in spring 2011.
Her interest in chiropractic began after a car accident left her with severe whiplash. She visited a chiropractor and not only did the treatments heal her injury, but also unexpectedly alleviated her chronic eczema, from which she had suffered for years. She became an instant convert to the whole body benefits of chiropractic care, which is not just for back pain, but can be used to treat a wide range of conditions — some people even recommend it for headaches!

Hello, my name is Jodie Black, I have recently completed my Diploma in Sports Injury and Rehab Education. I am a member and fully insured by the Society of Sports Therapists.

My previous experience includes working with Hungerford Town Football Club, a National League South team, during the 2016/17 season.
I am from Swindon, and have lived there all my life. I love to stay active whether that be going for a run, attending the gym, or playing netball. I started playing netball at the age of 8, from then on I’ve always worked my way up through the teams, and travelled all over the country.My team and I qualified for the National Finals, meaning we had to travel all the way to Loughborough. I am a caring and friendly individual who would love to help you with any complaints you are experiencing.
Hi my name is Anton Forbes, I am from Bristol and have grew up in the city my whole life. Ever since a young age I have always been interested in caring for those around me and from when I discovered the meaning of physiotherapy and massage I have had a keen interest in pursuing this as a career.
I began my journey at Filton SGS College where I studied a level 3 diploma in sport, this was where I first gained and studied the basic knowledge of anatomy and applied it to injuries learning how rehabilitation treatments such as massage can help the recovery process of injury. From 2012 to 2016 I was based at the University of Birmingham where I studied and completed my BSc Sport Therapy Degree. Whilst at university we had an open clinic to the public of all ages where we would monitor clients assessing their injuries and providing massage and after care to help decrease their pain levels and injury duration. I have worked with many of the university teams including netball, basketball and rugby as well as Sutton united football club.
I have always had a passion for delivering good quality of care treatment and through our sessions I hope to continue achieving this with you.
