Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare : Testimonials

“Helpful and friendly staff from the receptionist to the practitioner. A great experience.”

“The high level of care starts at the Reception, where nothing is a problem which continues in the treatment room. The whole team is fantastic.”

I had suffered with back pain for over ten years. It affected every moment of my day and ranged from a constant dull ache to excruciatingly painful.

In recent years I had also started to notice more and more aches and pains all over my body and a loss of mobility occurring in my back and neck. There seemed to be no escaping the pain, even my sleep was disturbed by it and getting moving in the mornings was difficult. I had resigned myself to the fact that the rest of my life would be full of pain. As in my mind surgery seemed to be the only option I had to ease my pain and under no circumstances did I want surgery.Show More

So, when I saw an advert for an open evening at Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare. I thought now is the chance to find out what is going on and see if my pain could be eased. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Never did I begin to imagine that in such a short space of time, so much would change.

I can’t quite believe the results of my treatment. I got so much more than I had hoped for. I can’t get over the fact that the pain in my back has gone!!! But not only that every ache and pain I was suffering from has either gone or has eased.

I have seen a massive improvement in my sleep and energy levels. I feel I have been given a whole new lease of life. No longer is my life ruled by pain.

The care and support I have received has changed my life. The whole team at Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare are fantastic. My only regret is that I didn’t come sooner. To say thank you from the bottom of my heart just doesn’t seem enough.

It has been such a relief to have been listened to and agreed that there is something that needs addressing rather than having my discomfort brushed aside as has happened by other professionals. The experience has literally changed my life. I am extremely thankful for the treatment I am receiving.

Catherine W.

Very impressed with the practice, every member of staff met were extremely welcoming, helpful and professional. Heidi’s explanations were very educational and simple to understand. It was a real pleasure to be on the receiving end of such knowledge and expertise.

I had been suffering from headaches and discomfort down my left hand side. I had put the pain down to my job as a hairdresser and also recently having a baby. I had also been feeling extremely tired, lack of energy and felt that I had restricted breathing.

I was recommended by a client to Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare and I have been overwhelmed by the results. I have so much more energy, I’m more comfortable, less headaches and I feel that I know exactly when I need Heidi to work her magic. She knows my body so well, exactly where I need to be adjusted and I feel completely at ease with her.Show More

I cannot recommend Heidi and her team enough. It has definitely changed my life, considering I thought that my discomfort was something I had to put up with.

I now go every month and feel fantastic.

Thank you so much Heidi.

Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare
Working in a design office environment means I spend most of my day sat in front of a computer or in meetings. Like many other office workers I also found myself drinking vast amounts of caffeine, rarely giving myself regular screen breaks and getting into a nasty habit of eating lunch at my desk. Throw in a commute of around 2 hours a day and it wasn’t long before my back had decided enough was enough!

After a number of rather unproductive visits to my GP I saw an advert for Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare in a local paper and decided to give it a go. After all, what did I have to lose?!Show More

Following an initial consultation where almost every aspect of my life was addressed, Heidi quickly established an incredibly effective care plan which not only included regular adjustments but also offered lifestyle advice and a range of exercises I could do at home to ensure I got the most out of my Chiropractic care.

In a matter of weeks my aches and pains were all but gone, my energy levels were through the roof and I was having the best night’s sleep I’d ever had! Many months down the line and my care plan continues to adapt and evolve to ensure I am able to maintain these levels of health and wellbeing no matter what life throws at me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the services of Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare.

When I moved to Hungerford I saw the sign for Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare and decided to make an appointment to see if they could do anything to help my back pain, aching and general feelings of negativity and the fact that I never seemed to have any energy. I had previously tried Postural Therapy and had been on courses to teach me how to lift properly but they didn’t really make a difference.Show More

After seeing Heidi for just a few weeks I started to notice a difference; the general aching had disappeared, my confidence levels had increased, my energy levels were rising and I felt happier and better in my own body. By adjusting my body, Chiropractic care has adjusted my mind set. I have now changed my diet, I drink less coffee and drink more water and because I feel more confident I have even quit smoking. By receiving regular Chiropractic care I feel a more confident and better person – try it for yourself – you will notice the difference.

MindFit Testimonial

Martin Bakker

I have always gotten quite quickly stressed about minor things and have found it difficult to relax. At one of my appointments with Heidi she recommended that I trial the MindFit Relaxation System. Now I am getting my body in good working order through chiropractic, I thought it might be time to take care of my mind as well.

After the first introductory session I felt completely relaxed and stress free – I was hooked!

I could tell the difference after the first session. My confidence level was up, I started worrying less and felt more relaxed.Show More

Over the next few weeks, using the MindFit regularly, I realised I was able to let things go more easily and not worry about the little things anymore. The techniques learned in the sessions helped me to relax in stressful daily situations and help me still. I am very glad I have done the MindFit and would recommend it to anyone who needs to learn to relax!

Like most people I first visited a chiropractor when I had a bad back!

Regularly visiting Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare taught me that pain is a result; it’s treating the cause that is the true objective.

Seven years later I have never felt as well as I do now and I urge anybody to regularly visit you to maintain their good health.
Hungerford Business Man – Robert Johnston “The Gentleman’s Shop”

I found Hungerford Chiropractic on the internet and decided to try them. I can honestly say that I regard them as a very good health investment. The practitioners are highly skilled, positive in outlook and very caring towards each individual.

During my sessions over the last few weeks I have changed from someone who couldn’t stand up straight and had a distinctive hobble to being a normal individual again, able to bend and perform normal daily functions without fear or concern of muscle seizure and always after each session there is an incremental improvement in my mobility which sometimes isn’t apparent until the next day or so. I fully intend to maintain my regular visits to Hungerford Chiropractic.

I was suffering with back pain from work and frequent migraines from an early age. I had tried many visits to my G.P., diets and tablets to ease the migraine but chiropractic seems to be the only treatment that helps. The back pain was debilitating, but with careful adjustments I can now get into all sorts of mischief!

I used to live in Hungerford so HCH was the obvious choice and although I have now moved away, HCH is well worth the travel!Show More

All of the staff at HCH help to create a wonderful atmosphere in the practice. A warm welcome from the friendly reception girls, who must get free treatment, as they bend over backwards to find me a perfect appointment time!

The treatments from Heidi are gentle, professional and thorough, narrated to describe how each adjustment will help my body’s natural healing, with time spent to carefully listen to not only my symptoms, but what my body needs.

I’m just a man; HCH makes me feel like a King!


My 3 year old son began coughing especially when running and appeared easily short of breath. I decided to visit Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare because I wanted to try an alternative approach to the condition other than using medication.

The initial consultation showed tightness around the lung on his back. An adjustment was made on his next visit, which was very gentle and actually made him laugh. I immediately noticed a difference in his breathing and he had also stopped coughing. After two more sessions I noticed a difference in other areas; his concentration was better, he was calmer, the eczema on his face was clearing up and the runny nose that he had had for months had stopped.Show More

Both my children and I have regular Chiropractic Care and I would recommend Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare to any parent because the results are outstanding.

I had been suffering with a bad shoulder for over a year and had a treatment for the muscular pain when I got to the stage where I could not function properly anymore.  I had been advised several times to see a chiropractor, but as with many things never got around to booking an appointment.

In February 2013 the pain was at breaking point and I had numbness down the back of my arm.  This scared me as I had never experienced this before. I knew I had to do something so as recommended I made an appointment at Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare.Show More

My first consultation was with Heidi who took me through a very thorough examination and reassured me that she could help.  Although a little sceptical I left feeling confident and relieved. I started with an intense course of treatment which covered adjustments to my neck, shoulders, spine and hips and over the following weeks I was shown different exercises to do and suggested diet changes to help with my recovery and improve my general wellbeing.

After each session I took on board the advice and help given to me by Heidi and the improvements started to show (even Heidi was impressed with my progress after just a few sessions).

My posture has improved, my energy levels have gone up, I am sleeping much better and I have started my Pilates classes again.  I am now working on my overall health and enjoy my regular ‘maintenance’ visits.

Before I became a patient at Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare I had terrible mid back pains, shoulder pain which reduced its movement range, neck pain and generally reduced energy levels. I’m a bass player in a rock band as well as a casual power lifter so I do tend to put my body through its paces on a regular basis.

The care that Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare has provided has been key in helping my body to keep in a state where it can maintain itself better than it has done before. It helps keep the correct signals flowing around your nervous system to keep it in working order and has helped my physical performance playing gigs and adding weight to all of my lifts.Show More

It may seem like a big step signing up for a new form of care but it’s one that I doubt I could go without now. Along with the excellent care for any problems you have they offer dietary advice, supplements, and other aids for posture such as great quality insoles which personally I’ve found a massive help. I imagine if I hadn’t started my care when I did I’d have some serious problems by now. It’s been extremely crucial and beneficial to me and it could be for you too.

I originally become a patient at Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare in 2007 after an unexplained injury that left my left arm totally numb and without reflexes. This was a very scary and debilitating condition that meant I was unable to do my job as a nanny for 2 small boys in Norway.

I happened to be visiting a friend in Hungerford when she suggested that I give Chiropractic a go. What was there to lose? I’d tried everything from seeing my GP to being admitted to hospital for MRI scans, all to no avail. They told me time and patience were my only option.Show More

After just one treatment I was able to regain both strength and reflexes in my arm, as if like magic. I was stunned! It was by no means an instant cure but the hope and relief I felt were huge. I bounced out of the office ready to face the world again. I resolved to book an appointment each and every time I visited the UK and I have done ever since.

Each visit begins with a short chat about how you are feeling and any concerns you may have. Then you are examined. This is not at all as scary as it sounds! A few gentle stretches to see how inline your body is or isn’t as in my case. Initially Heidi was manually adjusting my back and neck, thats the clunky bit, but she soon decided that I respond better to a different approach using the special trigger gun to adjust the points of my back that are causing the rest of me not to comply. She even uses it on my eyelids, that’s how gentle it is!

I had seen a chiropractor once before in my teens but he was very much a clunk click thanks for the trip kind of chap. This is not how they work at HCH. The focus is on long term health. I feel that I have made a group of friends who truly care about my health, from the delightful welcome that you receive from Nicola and her team on reception through the treatment with any of the Chiropractors to the after care in-between appointments with the recommended lifestyle tips and exercises designed to keep me moving forward.

I now live in Hungerford and see Heidi and her team on a very regular basis to manage my stress levels. I feel it is so important to take a little time for me each week and Chiropractic keeps wellness at the forefront of my mind, helping me to live a healthier life. I would recommend Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare to any one. In fact my partner and I both visit and trust me when I say I had to drag him there kicking and screaming but now he happily plans his visits into his week and even suggested that we should drink more water and visit the pub less! What more can I ask.

Lisa Philpott

I chose Hungerford chiropractic health care as it was local to me and from the very first enquiry phone call and subsequent visits I have felt very welcomed and cared for. Chiropractic treatment has seen me through 2 pregnancies and both labours were without any problems – I’m sure the chiropractic treatment contributed to this.

I still have pain in my lower back and I think I always will do as that is just the way my body seems to be but my symptoms are significantly reduced by chiropractor care and Heidi gets me to think about my posture and diet and the amount of tea I consume and the impact of this upon my body!!Show More

Hungerford chiropractic health care really is a holistic approach and Heidi has often had to put up with me spilling tears when she asks how I am!

I recommend this practice wholeheartedly, all the staff are amazing. Thank you.

Lisa Strode

Following an energetic party in which I danced in high heels I noticed some discomfort in the base of my left foot, situated around the arch. For the following few months I was aware of an odd niggle – particularly when pulling on boots or socks. It wasn’t until I changed my job however, that the discomfort became a real issue. The new job as a waitress in a very busy café, required me to be on my feet for 5 hours at a stretch, walking swiftly on hard floors.Show More

Two months into the new job I had come to the conclusion that I either had to leave the job as it was affecting my ability to move fast and comfortably or take advice and get treatment. The day before I made my appointment I had experienced the odd shooting pain in the arch area and my foot was very sore. Having used Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare before for general straightening and manipulation, I thought maybe they would be able to help. I had considered going to the GP but experience had taught me that there were some issues that needed a more hands-on approach with a speedy solution and this didn’t lie with our local practice. A friend had also recommended a Physio but I didn’t follow this route.

After a thorough examination and much questioning it was concluded that I had Plantar Fasciitis. Being diagnosed is always half the problem in that with a diagnosis comes a solution. I was recommended some simple exercises – rolling a small ball under the ‘offending’ foot. In addition I purchased some flexible ‘insoles’ for my shoes – I have to say that they gave immediate relief in the form of foot support.

Since the diagnosis I have been exercising daily with the ball and wearing the insoles for limited periods. The effect has been instantaneous. I am in much less discomfort – in fact there are times when my foot, after weeks of on/off pain, is completely normal.

As you can imagine, my mental well being is back on top form, knowing that I am ‘on the mend’ and can do my job effectively.

I can highly recommend Chiropractic treatment for all sorts of ‘ailments’. A drug free solution is a great way forward and despite the obvious expense, the relief is worth every penny. Having someone listen and take the time to understand is also a great asset in diagnostics.

MindFit Testimonial

Kylie recommended doing MindFit to help reduce my stress levels. It took some convincing but I’m glad she persevered! I’ve been doing Mindfit twice a week for nearly 3 months and it’s gradually helping me handle day to day stresses better.

My stress levels are fairly deeply rooted and I’ve come to realise that there’s no quick fix and no miraculous recovery but it’s definitely much, much better than before I started Mindfit.Show More

On the whole I’m more relaxed than I’ve been for a long time. An added bonus is that I don’t need as many adjustments as I used to because a lot of the tension has gone from my back and neck. Really unexpectedly some of my tinnitus noises have reduced too and I can cope better with the remaining noise. This is a great because it previously caused me a lot of distress especially at night.

I’m not entirely sure how it works but it’s working for me. I was very sceptical about trying it, but I’m glad I did. If I had to offer words of advice, I’d say stick with it and give it plenty of time to work. All in all, I felt old, tired and wiped out a few months ago and I feel so much better now.

January 2014

When I first came to see Kylie I was in agony. I had a week off work with a bad back, every time I moved it felt worse and I thought I would never get better. I kept taking painkillers and even tried getting my girlfriend to walk up my back while I was laid on the floor, but this still did not help.

I started looking on the internet and found Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare, booked an appointment and came in. During the consultation I found out my hips were out of alignment and all twisted. I was a little nervous about my first adjustment, if I am honest, I was nervous because I’ve heard so many stories from people that say Chiropractors hurt and twist and yank you about, but not this one. Kylie moves me in a way I can only describe as relaxing.Show More

When I came out from my first adjustment I felt 10 times better. By the second and third adjustment I felt even better and by then I was starting to feel better than I can ever remember. Brilliant!

My energy is even better and I feel better in myself, like a new man! Kylie has healing hands and she is worth her weight in gold. I now look forward to going each month.

If I have to give any advise to others with aches and pains, it is to get straight into a Chiropractor, as it will be the best thing you have ever experienced for pain relief.

Scott Waters

Initially I came to see Kylie because I had a painful hip, periodic back ache, general stiffness all over and I wasn’t sleeping very well. I’d also had bad knees on and off for years which occasionally prevented me using the stairs normally.

To be honest, I hadn’t really tried any intervention apart from occasional pain killers. I just plodded on thinking the discomfort was mostly a result of having kids and a subsequent lack of exercise. In the past yoga helped a lot but I haven’t had the opportunity to do it in recent years.Show More

I first heard about Chiropractic about 20 years ago when I was a nurse. More recently I was aware of Hungerford Chiropractic Healthcare and I actually persuaded my husband to go along when he had a bad back and then he subsequently persuaded me. It was largely curiosity that brought me through the door the first time. I didn’t know quite what to expect.

The initial consultation was a surprise because I discovered I was badly out of balance – I’d always thought my posture was fine! In fact, it was probably causing most of the discomfort in my hips, knees and back. Kylie also unearthed other health factors which I hadn’t really thought about much – I wasn’t drinking enough water and my underlying stress levels were really high. The stress in particular was contributing to lots of tension in my back and neck and probably contributed to regular headaches and tinnitus.

Kylie was able to adjust me until I was much more in line. She also recommended some exercises to help strengthen some parts and improve flexibility in others.

As a result of Kylie’s adjustments and some exercises, my hip stopped hurting very quickly indeed and my back felt much more flexible and comfortable after about 3 weeks. My knees have slowly improved and I also get fewer headaches now. All of these factors help me get a better night’s sleep. Overall I feel a lot less stiff and much more able to face the day.

I’ve found Chiropractic to be perfect for identifying the root causes of my problems and tackling them head on rather than just treating my symptoms. All in all, I felt old, tired and wiped out a few months ago and I feel so much better now.


“Since my accident I have seen lots of Doctors, Nurses, Physios and Specialists etc. with no results or interest other than to get me and out as quickly as possible. This is the first time I felt as though someone actually took the time to try and fully understand my condition and had a genuine desire to help me get back to full fitness again, and that was only my first visit! Can’t wait to go back with confidence knowing someones got my back! (pun intended) Also the lady at reception was very friendly, helpful and welcoming making me feel at home with a lovely cup of herbal tea. 5 stars all round. Many thanks.”
