Having been a migraine sufferer in the past, JL Brassington is well aware of the emotion, physical and chemical causes of illness. Experiencing the benefits of well-educated chiropractors and their various approaches led her to study chiropractic in order to help those in her community.

Through this degree, Dr Brassington gained expertise in the Webster Technique, along with other pregnancy and pediatric specific treatments.

With more strain on our lifestyles through poor dietary habits, sedentary work environments and relationship stresses, our need for integrative healthcare and achieving best outcome measures are vital. Consequently, chiropractic is the largest growing healthcare group in the world.

Thibaud decided to become chiropractor after being inspired by the idea of treating and then improving people’s lives naturally, holistically and with his own hands.

He finished his studies in 2014 from the IFEC (Franco-European Institute of Chiropractic) in Toulouse, France, where he learned many different Chiropractic techniques. He was a colleague of Geoffrey and Alyssa at this time and has come to us highly recommended.

After graduating, he immediately started work in an American-run clinic in Peru, where he had the chance to discover a new culture, to meet and treat a great number of patients, as well as exchange clinical experiences with other global chiropractors.

After this rewarding experience, Thibaud worked in Germany in the cities of Bonn and Koln, in association with other professionals. The situation was similar to our practices in Dundee, Glenrothes and Edinburgh.

Thibaud is passionate about travelling, and outdoor activities such as trekking, climbing and surfing. Amongst his various global journeys, Thibaud has had the opportunity to visit Scotland in the past and he immediately adored it. He is delighted to be of service to our patients with a major focus to optimise their lives, thanks to gold standard chiropractic care.

From a young age, Morgan played competitive football and softball, allowing her to observe and develop a curiosity for the nuances of human performance firsthand. She eventually earned a scholarship to play top-level softball in university, where an injury led her to seek care from multiple medical professionals, including her first experience with a chiropractor. After one visit with a chiropractor, she was able to return to the playing field. Knowing she wanted to work in the medical field from an early age, Morgan was now able to see her mindset and athletic experience fitting perfectly into the chiropractic profession.

Morgan completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic and Masters in Sports Science and Rehabilitation degrees with honours at Logan University, located in St. Louis, Missouri. She also earned two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in Nutritional Sciences and the other in Human Biology. Upon completing these degrees, Morgan joined a predominantly maternity and paediatric practice, located in Phoenix, Arizona. She then moved to her home town of St. Louis to begin her own chiropractic and functional medicine practice. Morgan is now established, in Edinburgh, Fife, and Dundee, where she enjoys spreading her passion for living in optimal health and her knowledge of the human body.

As a lifelong athlete, Morgan enjoys taking her competitive spirit to the football pitch and the golf course, as well as coaching athletes on the proper movements in sport to prevent injury and to maintain joint and tissue health for longevity in competition. To continue developing her understanding of sport-specific movement, Morgan has certified in Titleist Performance Institute’s (TPI) Level I Golf certification.

Morgan understands what it means to be sidelined in sports, work, and life, from her own experience of athletic injuries and illness. These personal experiences gave her the knowledge and wisdom to heal holistically and to know what it takes to return to wellness. Practicing a variety of adjusting, soft tissue, and rehabilitation techniques, Morgan is capable of adapting treatment to your unique preferences and needs—whether your sport is golf, chasing your children, or working hard at your desk.

Morgan is also certified by the General Chiropractic Council and is a member of the Scottish Chiropractic Association.
