Alyson Standing B.Sc. (Hons) Chiropractic MRCC
I was introduced to chiropractic in 1997 whilst studying Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at A-level. I spent time at my local chiropractic clinic each week after being introduced to the chiropractors there by a friend who knew I wanted to study for a career in physical health care. I began my studies in Chiropractic in 1998 at the University of Glamorgan and graduated in 2002.
I have worked in private chiropractic practice in Cardiff since graduating and in Oakdale since 2003. I also became a Supervising Clinic Tutor in 2003 working with 4th year Chiropractic students and their patients, at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic – University of Glamorgan (now the University of South Wales).
Bjorn Hennius DC, MSc MRCC
I was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1959 and was raised there up to the age of 12 when my father’s work took the whole family abroad. I remember that I early on developed an interest in human biology and how the human body functions in health and during disease. Hospital placement was part of my training during my obligatory stint in the Swedish National service in the late seventies and the time spent on the different wards motivated me to look into Complementary Medicine and more specifically the field of Chiropractic.
After graduating from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth in 1984 I moved back and worked in Sweden for 16 years. I came over to Wales to work in the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan in Pontypridd in January 2000. I have stayed here since and returned to fulltime private practice as a chiropractor in late 2002, seeing patients in Cardiff and in Oakdale.
