Jersey-born Chiropractor Marie-Christine, one of the four founders of Align, is dedicated to promoting good health choices within the island’s community. She was inspired to become a Chiropractor after receiving chiropractic care for a sports injury while playing badminton for Jersey, and seeing benefits in pain relief as well as performance in sport and overall wellbeing. Marie-Christine studied for her masters’ degree in chiropractic at the world-renowned AECC (Anglo-European College of Chiropractic) in Bournemouth. She then joined a practice in Hove for three years, helping it secure the prestigious Chiropractor PPQM 2008-2010 award from the College of Chiropractors UK for meeting patient expectations and promoting good standards of practice. She returned to Jersey in 2008, establishing her reputation as a Chiropractor by setting up the Back to Balance practice and then the Lido Wellness Centre - with the firm belief that Chiropractic can help build and maintain a robust and healthy body, capable of dealing with everything that life throws at it. Marie-Christine has helped people of all ages, from the young, pregnant women and older people. Marie-Christine has completed further qualifications and courses including medical acupuncture, treatment of pregnant women, pediatrics, chiropractic neurology, activator technique, rehabilitation, and CranioSacral techniques. She is a member of the British Chiropractic Association. With a clear belief that health should be one of the main priorities in life, and prevention is always better than cure, Marie-Christine’s work to promote awareness of good health habits in her community has included giving talks to local school pupils and on local radio.
