Read more about Bronwen
I am very passionate about what I do and I feel there is nothing better than helping people recover from back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint, nerve, and muscle pain.
I use a variety of techniques including massage, dry needling, and manipulation to effectively treat these conditions and work not only by treating what is found to reduce the pain, but also identifies the underlying cause to reduce recurrence of the complaint.
I have always had a strong interest in health and fitness and have worked extensively in care work before training as a chiropractor.
I graduated with a Merit from a Masters degree in chiropractic after training at the prestigious Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth. The institution is well renowned for having the best tutors and an extensive curriculum including: anatomy, diagnosis, functional rehabilitation, paediatrics, nutrition, pharmacology, and neurology.
All students undergo extensive clinical training, treating a wide range of patients and conditions. Furthermore I aided a local Rugby club providing pitch side assistance. I am especially interested in treating sports injuries and working with athletes.
I am a member of The International Federation of Sports Chiropractic, an Associate Member of the RCC Sports and Exercise Faculty, paediatrics facility as well as the animal faculty and currently studying the ICCSP Sports Chiropractic certification. Additionally I have completed the PGCert APP in Paediatric Musculoskeletal Health at the AECC and last year qualified to treat horses and small animals with the International Association of Veterinary Chiropractic (IAVC).
I am a trained fitness instructor with a special interest in rehabilitative exercises. All new patients are given rehabilitative exercises and have the opportunity to participate in supervised rehabilitative exercises in a gym environment.
Additionally, after completing the AECC Diploma in dry needling and medical acupuncture and seeing amazing results using these techniques, I am continuing to study Western Medical Acupuncture and am a registered member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society.
Bronwen is a registered member of the General Chiropractic Association, British Chiropractic Association, Royal College of Chiropractors, British Medical Acupuncture Society, The International Federation of Sports Chiropractic, RCC Sports and Exercise Faculty, Paediatrics and Pregnancy Faculty, and the Animal Faculty.

Chiropractor Jake Hayes has been practising in Bristol since 2001 after completing a full-time four year BSc degree at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan, he is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association and College of Chiropractors. Jake also has a degree in Physiology and Sports Science from the University of Glasgow. Since 2014 he has been a Clinical Tutor at the University of South Wales helping to train future generations of Chiropractors. Jake was inspired to become a Chiropractor after seeing how much benefit and relief it gave to his family.
Jake grew up in Bristol and returned to his home town to practice on graduation. Since then he has married and has two children. He is a keen and enthusiastic sportsman, having tried most sports over the years. Nowadays you’ll find Jake mostly running or cycling, as an active member of both Bitton Runners and Saltford and Keynsham Cycling Club, with an occasional ski trip thrown in during the winter. Not being content with completing 17 Bristol Half Marathons or 11 London Marathons, Jake has developed an ultramarathon habit which has included two successful finishes of the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc, a 105 mile circumnavigation of Mont Blanc via France, Italy and Switzerland, as well as running both the Cotswold Way and West Highland Way each in under 24 hours.
In my personal life I take a great interest in healthy living, which is what originally drew me to study Chiropractic care. Across the course of my studies I have discovered that it is crucial to tailor care specifically for a patient rather than give a general care package to everyone.
You’ll often find me in the gym as I find a good workout can not only be good for the body but keep the mind in check, and I enjoy mixing up different routines to keep things fresh and prevent boredom from setting in.
I have an interest in drama and musical theater, regularly attending professional productions to top up my theatrical enjoyment.
I have recently graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic after studying for 5 years. I am very excited to put what I’ve learnt into practice and meet a variety of people.
