About Anna Palmer DC
I have always been interested in understanding the amazing complexity of the human body and completed a Batchelors in Physical Education and Mathematics in 1997. My teaching career has seen me involved in teaching a range of subjects from PE, Dance and Drama to Mathematics and Health and Social Care.
My first experience of chiropractic was in 2008 when I took my very unsettled 4 month old baby to see a McTimoney chiropractor. After the first adjustment, the difference was profound. For the first time since she was born she just fell asleep in my arms; no endless rocking or swaddling required. From that day forward as a family we all benefited from regular treatment and I started to see an opportunity to retrain.
In 2014, I took the almighty leap and began my studies in a Masters of Chiropractic at the McTimoney College in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, whilst continuing my day job as a teacher. It was a challenging 5 years, but I am proud to be able to state I am now a Doctor of Chiropractic.
My mission is to continue to educate - either through my one to one connections with patients or in my role as lead Lecturer in Human Function at The McTmoney College.
The human body is so clever, yet we often take so much of it for granted. Its capacity to heal continues to astound and amaze me and yet we are still learning every day what it is really capable of.
I also aim to continue to learn and to question - after all, “the only thing that is constant is change”, Heraclitus
My personal experience of chiropractic has guided my vision to be able to offer chirorpactic care to all ages. I am passionate about helping others to make changes to positively impact their posture and also recognise the importance in using exercise to support and maintain a balanced body. I have also chosen to gain further training in adjusting babies and pregnant mums and hope to continue to develop my skills over the next few years.
