Elaine Lee

Head of Practice

Elaine has twenty six years experience as a Chiropractor. She graduated from McTimoney Chiropractic college in 1986 and was also a teacher there for several years, teaching the McTimoney technique. Over the years she has built up a successful practice with two other associates.

Her particular interest is the relationship between the mind, body and movement. This has led me to retrain in the Feldenkrais method which explores one’s own awareness of habitual movement. Qualifying in 2003 as a Feldenkrais practitioner, Elaine specialises in postural re-education so that people understand why they have a problem and how to help themselves.

A combination of chiropractic practice and the Feldenkrais method provide a unique insight into how our habits bring about muscular skeletal strain. This understanding and awareness gives the patient tools for change bringing increased mobility, and reduction of pain and discomfort.

She is a member of the General Chiropractic Council, McTimoney Association and The Feldenkrais Guild UK.

Fatima Alcantara

Practice Chiropractor

Fatima is a chiropractor with over 18 year’s experience. She was also a clinical tutor with the former Oxford College of Chiropractic at Oxford Brookes University. Of Brazilian origin, she trained as a nurse in the UK in the 1980's and has subsequently become a British citizen.

Her curiosity about the mind-body relationship led her to pursue yoga, t'ai chi and the Feldenkrais Method for many years. She is a graduate of the Novato Institute for Somatic Research and Training (USA) where in 1995 she completed her training in Hanna Somatic Education (HSE).

This training complemented and transformed her chiropractic practice as it is a most ingenious rehabilitation method to learn how to deal with the muscular and joint imbalances we develop throughout our lives. These may be acquired through injury, poor posture, repetitive strains, trauma or the stresses and strains of modern living.

Muscular contractions can create imbalances of your whole skeleton, as uneven guy-ropes do on a tent. As a result, joints can get compressed, nerves get “pinched” and a whole chain reaction set in motion. The outcome is stiffness, pain and a gradual distortion of our posture. Hanna Somatic Education is a learn-as-you-do method to reverse these effects and promote a more organized and freer body

Darren Roles


I started my somatic education as a child through many sporting and playful activities. Over the years being involved in a wide and varied array of physical pursuits lead me to invest my experiences into a functional approach, of movement and posture.

Training as an engineer gave me the biomechanical and practical tools for assessment and a deeper understanding of the relationships in balance, movement and support.

At the London School of Sports Massage I gained a higher diploma. With this I worked with professional dancers, acrobats and performing casts in theatres. Also I have treated cyclists, runners, boxers and patients with long term degenerative conditions. From here I continued my education, increasing my knowledge and clinical understanding through an Osteopathic Bsc hons degree. This enriched my appreciation and gave great insight into the wide and diverse, benefits osteopathic treatment can bring.

For over fifteen years I have continued my collaboration with the Feldenkrais method. This has enlightened my sensory, mechanical, and neurological pathways of a dynamic movement potential. Utilising the osteopathic understanding of spinal mechanics, with the Muscles and connective tissue characteristics, I have developed a functional approach to treatment. Brining together the anatomical structure of bones and joints, here my treatments integrate a somatic educational approach to dynamic postural balance and control.
