About Jane

I’m Jane and I’m the chiropractor behind Smile Health.

I wasn’t always a chiropractor and I haven’t always lived in Northumberland. I grew up in Cheshire but moved to Northumberland in 1998 when my husband was posted here in the RAF.

I used to work in engineering but, following a course of chiropractic treatment to help with some back pain, I knew I wanted to help other people with their nagging pains. After I had my twins I retrained to do just that.

What I love about it: it genuinely changes people’s lives and gives them back their smiles – hence my business name!

Here’s a little quickfire to help you find out a bit more about me:

Spa break or city break: city break

Sunday brunch or Sunday roast: Sunday roast

Heels or flats: barefoot

Winter sun or winter snow: winter sun

Owl or lark: lark

Mindful walk or park run: mindful walk

Birdsong or Podcast: Birdsong

Dog or cat: dog

Vegetarian or meat eater: flexitarian

If you’d like to know more, here’s my official small print…

I trained at McTimoney College of Chiropractic, and have been a chiropractor since 2004. I complete a minimum of 30 hours’ CPD to maintain my registration with the professional body for Chiropractors, the GCC.

I’ve done some rehabilitation training to help my clients in the longer term and have also trained as a breath coach. Having suffered from COPD myself, I have a particular interest in lung function and will always observe my clients’ breathing for signs of stress and anxiety.

Jane is absolutely amazing. I’ve been going to her with a few ailments. Have been taken painkillers for a few years for ankle, leg and back pain but they had no effect. My last visit to Jane was on May 22nd. She worked wonders and I’m happy to say, I’m pain free and painkiller free. Can’t thank her enough.

Awesome. Jane certainly knows her stuff! The 'thingy' she uses may seem innocuous and not able to hit the spot, but my goodness does it do the trick. Every time I know I will be in the area, I make sure I book in at least one session with Jane, and I know it will help my muscles, my posture and my pain. Even if you don't have an issues...go see Jane, and you will realise you feel better any how!!

Very friendly and helpful. Fitted us in at the last minute when we were stuck on holiday with back trouble. Her treatment made a real difference. Also helped out our son. A lovely lady with excellent knowledge and skills. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Jane for the adjustment. I felt so much better afterwards and am glad to have found a great chiropractor for future visits to the area!
