Dr. Kathryn Edwards
BSc(Hons) Chiropractic DC
Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners who have a holistic approach and none more so than Kathryn who focuses her treatment on improving motion and restoring balance to the body, nerves, joints and muscles. She uses a wide range of quick and effective techniques and adjustments including Diversified techniques, Activator method and McTimoney techniques to improve skeletal alignment and achieve the best optimal function for her patients.
Kathryn has been in practise in the London area for 10 years, though her experience is arguably longer from dealing with patients having grown up working in her father’s pharmacy in Bournemouth. Having seen so many people young and old reliant on painkillers for biomechanical issues she has developed a great passion in helping people achieve the best from their bodies. Her other passion include her dogs and horses. She also practises Equine Chiropractic privately which hones in her expertise in her analysis of gait and alignment for horses and people alike.

Dr. Andrew Barfoot-Saunt
MChiro DC LRCC
Andrew has been making positive impact on patients’ lives for well over decade. He graduated in 2008 from Anglo European College of Chiropractic, and had been building successful practises in Oxfordshire, South West and South East London ever since.
Andrew is a very different type of Chiropractor. He is an experienced Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) practitioner and qualified instructor. This affords him the ability to look at a presenting condition differently, often seeing the underlying cause and help unravel chronic conditions that may baffle others.
Up until last year was working alongside one of the leading diplomats of the Cranial field; founder of Cranio Fascial Dynamics (CFD), leader in the field of Craniopathy which emphasise treating Cranial Fascial Dynamics, arguably the underlying cause of a multitude of musculoskeletal conditions ranging from headaches, back pains to suboptimal performance on the sports field. For this very reason, Andrew was approached specifically to join us at the Grand Drive Chiropractic Clinic.
Andrew is a highly experienced, successful practitioner who always puts his patient’s needs first. He takes time to always explain both what a patient’s problem is as well as how he can help; in non-jargon, easily understandable language. For these reasons along with the results he achieves, he is greatly loved by his patients.

Steve McCann BSc(Hons)
Remedial / Sports Massage Therapist & Athletics Coach
During normal exercise the body is subject to different physical and biomechanical loadings. If the exercises are preformed regularly and correctly, the body’s systems can cope and adapt to the increasing overload. However, sometimes overuse injuries can occur which in turn create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues. If those problems are ignored they can lead to more chronic injuries and will have an effect on the performance be that of an athlete or an eighty year old.
Steve is experienced in treating clients from muscular pain, tears, strains and restricted movement, ranging to RSI and sports specific injuries.
Alongside deep tissue massage, Steve specialises in Soft Tissue Release, Neuromuscular Technique and Trigger Point Therapy. Used together these techniques improve circulation to injured tissue, increasing the blood flow and stimulate the peripheral nerves which in turn increases the speed at which toxins are flushed away to be replaced with fresh oxygenated blood.
He also focuses on creating stretch to the deep muscle fibres involved and assist fluid drainage to through the lymphatic system to unwind the strain patterns in the body's myofascial system, restoring it to its natural balance, alignment, length, and ease to facilitate ultimate performance.
As a qualified athletics coach and long distance runner, Steve is acutely aware of the frustrations of long-term injuries and actively works with his clients to rehabilitate and prevent recurrence including utilising his knowledge of biochemistry and NLP from his previous career which dovetails well with the skillset needed of a modern coach
Steve has lived in Wimbledon for nearly 20 years. He is a qualified food scientist, running coach and sports masseur. He studied at St Mary’s in Twickenham and was fortunate to practice on the elite athletes who train there. A keen sportsman himself he has tried (and injured himself) playing most sports and uses this experience, combined with his studies to determine the best course of action for optimising the recovery of his clients.
Steve is a keen runner and coaches at local clubs and schools, he regularly takes on endurance cycling events, skis whenever he has the chance, boxes when he finds a smaller opponent and plays golf when the sun shines.

Dr. Jessica Mang
BSc(Hons)Chiropractic DC PgCert MRCC
Jessica has been in practice in the London/Surrey region since graduating in 2004. Her practice combines Diversified Chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology, Dry Needling / Medical Acupuncture and tissue therapies including oscillation and therapeutic ultrasound.
As a Chiropractor, Jessica has a hands on approach and will perform extensive orthopaedic and neurologic testing including a battery of myofascial test to accertain the strength and function to understand the presenting complaint and how and why it came about be from an age old injury or simple postural habits. From her training on the gruelling 100 hour Applied Kinesiology course in Paris with the head of International College of Applied Kinesiolgy, she is taught to look at a complaint by evaluating body function and dynamic movement (Structure), as well as assessing the 'external' factors such as outward stressors from lifestyle to environmental (Mental) or nutritional deficits or excesses (Chemical). She will then manage the condition using a combination of cranial techniques, meridian and medicacupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, lifestyle management advice, ergonomic advice and various reflex procedures.
She also performs Dry Needling, which is known by many different terms including Western Acupuncture / Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS). Dry Needling aims to inactivate myofascial trigger points by provoking a local twitch response, which is an involuntary spinal cord reflex in which the muscle fibers in the taut band of muscle contract. Activating endogenous opioids for an analgesic effect using the Gate Control Theory of Pain. In addition to relieving myofascial trigger points, it has also been found to decrease pain (relief occurs at four central levels: local pain, spinal pain through nerves, brain stem pain, and higher brain center pain), increase range of motion, and minimise myofascial trigger point irritability.

MPharms RHAD MSHAA
Pharmacist & Hearing Aid Audiologist
Micro Suction Ear Wax Removal is the removal of ear wax using a medical device under the microscope with illumination.
Micro suction is a safe effective way of removing ear wax without the use of water. The practitioner is able to see what they are doing using a microscope with a light attached, making this method the safest for removing ear wax. The tubes are also sterile which means there is virtually no risk of infection.
We recommend the use of Earol for a couple of day before treatment to make the removal process comfortable. We are normally able to offer and appointment within a few days avoiding long waits.
Ushma is dual qualified as a Pharmacist and a Hearing Aid Audiologist which can be very helpful and informative for patients.
