Meet the Team @ Peterborough Chiropractic

Dr Daniel O’Sullivan (Doctor of Chiropractic)

Principal Chiropractor

Daniel O'Sullivan PeterboroughDaniel is from Peterborough originally and studied chiropractic at university in Oxfordshire. He learned a range of gentle approaches to restore correct function of the spine and nervous system and has taken his personal development beyond this into a more diverse world of adjusting the spine. He is passionate about health in general and dedicates his time to the study and practice of all aspects within this field including nutrition, functional personal fitness and the elimination of physical, chemical and emotional stresses from the body. These influences can all have insidious devastating effects that many of us are not aware of, but all can be prevented, “Prevention is better than cure”. This increases longevity and Daniel is keen to pass on this knowledge to help people to get more from their bodies as they age which will be encompassed into your treatment program.

Daniel is a PADI dive master, and enjoys snow boarding and kite surfing as well as spending time with family and friends and reading personal development books and philosophy. He has spent 2 years backpacking, mainly in Australasia and loves to explore new cultures and experiences in life generally.

He is passionate about his vocation as a health professional and excited to hold a position whereby he can make a huge positive difference in people’s lives by treating them with the phenomenal art of chiropractic. Daniel is enthusiastic and aims to use his passion to inspire his clients mentally and emotionally and pass on knowledge that will help them to be all they want to be, not just with the elimination or reduction of pain but beyond that to higher functioning body and a better quality of life.

Dr Dimitris Bakalis (Doctor of Chiropractic)

Dimitris is from Greece, and has studied chiropractic in the University of South Wales. Dimitris was introduced to the wonderful world of chiropractic by his uncle, who managed to find relief from his chronic back problems and low energy only after visiting a chiropractor.

Dimitris was intrigued to hear that his uncle finally became better, after visiting so many different health professionals, and after doing research, he was amazed to find out that with chiropractic, by working on the spine, you can improve the function of the nervous system, which is the master control system of the body, and that’s something unique to this profession.

After graduating from University, Dimitris has been to numerous seminars, wanting to further improve his knowledge in chiropractic, and refine his technique skills. He has learned a range of techniques to detect and correct spinal problems.

Dimitris loves travelling, and one of his biggest dreams is to visit every country in the world. He also enjoys listening to jazz music and watching football, especially the lower divisions of English football, where he finds the atmosphere very unique and friendly.

After working for a year in London, Dimitris decided to move in a more relaxed environment. Knowing Dr Dan personally, and seeing himself how quickly his chiropractic clinic has grown over time and the unique part it plays in providing health care in the community of Peterborough, he knew Peterborough Chiropractic was the best place to continue practising.

Chelsea Jackson – Chiropractic Assistant

Chelsea has recently returned to Peterborough from traveling and living off grid in communities in Cornwall.

She studied nature film and photography and took part in many eco projects; earth shipbuilding and permaculture. Unfortunately, this lifestyle took its toll on Chelsea’s severe scoliosis and she returned to Peterborough to concentrate on the health of her spine.

This bought her to Peterborough Chiropractic. After receiving treatment from Dr Dan, the results were fantastic and dramatically improved her life, to the point where she no longer required surgery; She’s now part of the team and is very passionate about the work wanting to support and promote Chiropractics as she’s seen the benefits first hand.

In Chelsea’s spare time she paints, draws, photographs, sings, creates videos and attends church.

Elizabeth Peterborough ChiropracticElizabeth – The Resident Pug

Elizabeth (Born 2nd November 2017 as Queen Daisy), is according to our client satisfaction survey the highlight of people’s visits to the clinic. She is very affectionate and loves a lot of cuddles which we believe is a great form of medicine in itself. Cuddling releases a very powerful chemical in the body called Oxytocin. Oxytocin is the hormone in both men and women that facilitates bonding with a partner or on the birth of a baby. It is also shown to reduce psychological stress and adrenalin secretion in the body. Prolonged exposure to chemicals like adrenaline through the general stresses of modern life can have detrimental effects on the body and health. When our clients are in a constant state of chronic pain adrenaline will be secreted, putting the body into an over active fight of flight state. Oxytocin also helps with muscle regeneration and tissue repair, so make sure you get your cuddles.

Besides cuddling, Elizabeth also loves eating, sniffing, sleeping and chewing. She also has an avid interest in children and toys. So make sure you say ‘hello’ when you visit.
