She studied at Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, and on graduating in 1984, worked as an associate in a practice in Sheffield before founding Beckenham & Bromley Chiropractic Clinic in 1986.

Associate Chiropractor

Laura Simmons DC, MChiro (Hons), LRCC.

Laura Simmons

Laura Simmons decided to become a chiropractor having seen the benefits of chiropractic care first hand from a young age. Laura felt that chiropractic gave her the opportunity to support patients throughout the whole recovery process, giving them the help they need to get back to their daily lives.

She graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, where she worked with Bournemouth University to treat and prevent sports injuries. This involved working with a wide range of athletes, treating injuries as well as working to enhance performance and encourage injury resistance. She is also Pitch Side First Aid and AED trained.

Laura enjoys working with a wide range of patients from paediatric patients to the elderly. Having been a part of a combined midwifery-chiropractic clinic focusing on addressing feeding difficulties, Laura is keen to support mothers throughout pregnancy and treat the paediatric patient.

With many of us spending increasing hours using technology and having sedentary jobs and lifestyles, Laura has been involved in carrying out work place ergonomic assessments to help reduce back pain, neck pain and tension headaches through better work place set ups.

Laura continues to attend post-graduate courses focusing on her interests and treats patients of all ages helping them out of pain and addressing the root cause to aid injury prevention.

Amanda Lamboura

Amanda Lamboura graduated from the London School of Reflexology in 2014. She is a member of the Association of Reflexologists and is also DBS registered.

She was first inspired by reflexology following a course of treatment for ill health. Amanda was amazed at how much the reflexologist could tell from touching her feel and the improvement noted following treatment.

Amanda’s bespoke style of reflexology employs a gentle approach. Therefore treatments are not only effective in stimulating self healing, but also have the added benefit of offering an intensely relaxing experience. Common problems managed include:

  • Respiratory- including asthma
  • Digestive
  • Headaches including migraines
  • Stress-related issues
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Skin dermatology
  • Pain Management including joint and nerve pain
  • Pre-conception, pregnancy and post natal support

Amanda also specialises in facial reflexology which improves circulation, nerve conditions and muscle tone, whilst also promoting healing within the body.

Throughout a course of treatment, clients will also notice a smoother more toned complexion with a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The result is a healthy glow on the outside and wellbeing within.
