“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”


Thomas Edison


Healthier Mind, Body & Spirit

Embrace the uniqueness of your mind to discover a natural path to happiness, wellbeing and vitality.

I am passionate about what I do. I offer individualised care which incorporates my experience, my skills and my knowledge accumulated from over 30 years of practising with a broad range of clients. Chiropractic Care, Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Therapeutic Yoga can all make significant contributions to your health and vitality.

The care that I offer is suitable for all ages including pregnant women.



Chiropractic is a natural and whole-body approach to healing which accepts 'the power that makes the body heals the body'. It is often a solution for issues that aren’t necessarily close to your spine.



Yoga has been practised over thousands of years. Practising Yoga has many physical and mental benefits helping you gain and maintain a healthier body, mind, and spirit and a sane approach to life!

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

Cranio-Sacral Therapy or CST is a gentle, yet very powerful holistic approach involving a light touch to help release tension and with it, bring awareness to the body and mind.

Be-ing Retreat

Here for a better you

There are still places in our countryside where you can fully connect with your environment and feel the natural order of things. The quality and potency of these places depend on the ‘organising principle’ at play, whether that be mother nature or ‘gardeners of the planet’ operating from a symbiotic perspective (e.g. Biophilia, natural law and permaculture). We are growing such a place and we call it the Be-ing Retreat.

The Place

By a brook on the side of an oak woodland hillside in the Devon countryside, The Being retreat is sited on a developing 3-acre smallholding where biophilia comes first. We are practising a form of “field and forest gardening” where Biodiversity, healthy food production and a nurturing environment for people are the focus of this project. The sense of seclusion and connection with nature here allows you the time and space to consume, learn and understand some essential life skills required for surviving and thriving in a challenging 21st Century.

The Experience

Our aim is to develop personal growth and to be focused on changes you can make to help establish and strengthen the pathways of positive change.

We explore solutions to empower healthy living and natural healing, dietary and behavioural skills, ecological techniques, and the crafts required for sustainable human development.

Activities & Courses

From mindfulness to yoga, from fasting to healing bodywork and from eco-land husbandry to craft skills, we are creating the conditions and environment where you can learn these skills.
These courses and activities will be led by selected teachers all excellent in their disciplines.

Kind Affirmations

“My 8 year old daughter is a trampoline gymnast and has an extensive training schedule. Something wasn’t quite right with her, and I thought it could be worth seeing a chiropractor who understands and works with children.Claire was recommended by a friend.

On our first visit, Claire checked her over and pointed out that her pelvis was out quite considerably. One leg longer by a few centre meters than the other. She explained beautifully that she can help that and, ‘give a little click’ to make it better. A few clicks later the pelvis was aligned and normal. My little girl slept like an angel that night and found back somersaults a breeze afterwards. She was bouncing out of alignment so would have suffered long term if we hadn’t have seen Claire. She has also suffered from bad tonsillitis.

Since seeing Claire and keeping her aligned she has been much better at dealing with her tonsillitis than beforehand. I think it shows that looking after your bones and having a good diet are so vital in health and well being.

We now see Claire a few times a year and it’s an essential part of our life. My son and I have also benefitted massively from Claire’s help. I thoroughly recommend Claire. She is amazing.

“Claire and Richard did a wonderful job looking after us and making sure we had everything we needed during our stay. I felt very held and secure.

Being in a natural environment, sitting in the sunshine, walking to the stream and living in simple, organic structures, all aided and benefited the fasting process for me.

Going from the routine of regular mealtimes to not having them, meant it was important to have other things to look forward to and other activities to fill my days. Claire and Richard planned the first day of transitioning from food to fast with lots of activities to keep our minds and hearts active.

The yoga sessions in the morning were tailored to our needs on a daily basis, depending on our energy levels and how we were feeling. The treatments and massages were really, really good and I did look forward to them. Having regular saunas was just bliss and a great place to contemplate on the fasting process and what it brings up emotionally and sometimes to talk and share feelings with Caroline the other Faster.

Being an artist I made full use of the art materials, left by Amanda, and spent many happy hours painting away.

I found reading about the benefits of fasting really helpful and it made a lot of sense. I learnt much about what happens to the body when you fast. What amazing creations our bodies are and how little we give them credit!

I was surprised how I never felt hungry, only aware of my bodies changes, like increased heart rate, a strong pulse in my belly and a strange taste in my mouth.

Even though it's been less than a week since the fast I have been noticing the differences. My energy and stamina levels have increased and I feel lighter. I feel more positive about life and ready for new challenges. My eyes are brighter and my poos more solid and darker. My lower backache has gone and my right knee joint has improved. I am even more aware of the food I eat and notice the difference I feel after I have eaten.



“Just before lockdown I suffered a severe injury to my knee, I was in so much pain that I couldn’t leave the house for 8 weeks. My GP would only talk to me on the phone and offered me painkillers, I felt very alone. Luckily I had Claire to turn to, who initially advised me about an anti-inflammatory diet. I immediately saw improvement in my knee and gradually started walking and building up my daily steps. Eventually I was given an x-ray, which my GP informed me, showed that I had severe arthritis - the knee of an 85 year old! and my only hope was a knee replacement.

When Claire was able to see clients again she assured me that I had plenty of movement in my knee and certainly didn’t need a knee replacement. Claire suggested a water fast. This seemed very drastic to me, but as I was desperate I decided that I had nothing to lose and would give it a go.

I cannot say that the fast was a pleasant experience and I was taking a leap of faith. However, the results have been simply amazing and are ongoing. My knee is hardly painful at all and I am back walking my dog and doing my 10,000 steps a day. I am almost back to my proper weight and have so far lost 3 inches off my waistline! My skin is glowing. I have so much more energy. I feel the clock has gone back 10 years and my body is working the way it should again!

I am now juicing, making my own soda bread and have cut out processed foods. Friends are telling me that I look amazing and I feel it. I will definitely be doing twice yearly fasts from now on.

I cannot recommend Claire highly enough, I have so much to thank her for, she is my inspiration and a true healer.”
