Helen Harding Chester Chiropractor

Helen Harding

Helen graduated in 2005 from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic with a 1st class honours degree in chiropractic. Helen has worked as a Chiropractor in Chester since graduation, where she has continually strived to develop both her skills and knowledge base.

Helen has a vast experience treating a wide range of conditions and has helped people of all ages and abilities. She has a special interest in pregnancy and paediatric care, utilising gentle techniques including Cranio-Sacral Therapy and techniques specifically developed for pregnant women and children.
Outside of clinic Helen enjoys canicross, a sport which involves running whilst harnessed to your dog (mostly trying to avoid being pulled over by Toby, a 35kg German Shorthaired Pointer!)
Helen is fully registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA). In addition to this, Helen is also a licentiate member of the Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC), and was awarded specialist membership of the Pregnancy and Paediatrics faculty in recognition of her training and special interest.

I graduated in 2019 with a Masters in Osteopathy from Swansea University. I decided to join Aligned Health and the fantastic team that Helen has built in order to better my knowledge regarding patient wellness.

I chose to study osteopathy as I have always wanted to work in healthcare so that I could help others achieve their desired health and wellbeing goals in a progressive, alternative approach.

I appreciate every aspect within osteopathy, however, my favourite part is working holistically with every type of patient, young and old.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling and walking along coastal trails especially with family and friends. I am an avid photographer and a, known for meticulously focusing on getting the ‘perfect’ shot.

Jonathan Aplas Massage Therapist

Jonathan Aplas

I have been a qualified level 4 certificate in Sports Massage Therapy since September 2018.

Absolutely loving my time as a sports massage therapist; and loving my time even more, since joining Aligned Health. Having a team around me with the support and care we provide, not only for our patients; but the support and care between the team makes me excited to provide my services every day.

I find that having a regular massage really benefits the mind and muscles. Sports massage has an added bonus of looking into the cause of an injury, recovery process and preventative measures for the future.

My background has always been into sports and on a weekly basis I help out at gyms and local sports teams offering my services from a physical massage, to educating sports performers about home care as well as explaining now massage is key in maintenance and recovery. I also help out at the Chester marathons, where we give massages to runners before and after which contributes to their muscles being efficiently warmed up as well as being effective in the recovery process.

I’ve spent most of my working life in the health and fitness industry. Before training in massage I worked as a fitness instructor, personal trainer and then as a college sports tutor. After taking a break from work to look after my children I wanted to expand my knowledge and gain a new skill and decided to train as a sports massage therapist.

I chose massage because I had seen and experienced its many benefits first hand and wanted to be able to provide those benefits to other people. From easing pain to reducing stress and tension, preventing injury to speeding up recovery time – massage is amazing!!

Since I started practicing as a massage therapist I’ve gained an enormous amount of experience and knowledge. Alongside my work at the clinic I’m a regular volunteer at many events (such as the Chester marathon and half marathon) and I have an ongoing role at Chester Football Club as the first team massage therapist. I also do pitch-side first aid work for local rugby and football teams which involves hands on management of sports injuries immediately after they occur.

I absolutely love working at Aligned Health, the patients are amazing and the team that I work with are all outstanding. In fact I’ve been so inspired by working with Helen and the team that I’m now studying part time to become a chiropractor myself!

In 2018 I Graduated from Edgehill University with a 2.1 after studied BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy. After Graduating from University I worked in private insurance and also in different sports clubs developing my practice.

Completing for Great Britain in trampolining from a young age I have unfortunately experiences a number of different injuries resulting in needing treatment to return to competition, this always inspired me to about to help people the way physiotherapist and doctors helped me.  I have also gained experience working in a range of clubs and events including; Widnes Vikings, profession football club, Edge Hill University Men’s and women’s football teams. I have also working at events providing massage at British Trampoline league events, Wigan 10K and Chester half.

I love to travel and have currently been to 32 of the 44 countries in Europe and looking to travel South America in the near future, so if you know any good places to visit please let me know!!!

My role in the clinic is as a Clinic Assistant which involved making sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible on a daily basis to enable our wonderful practitioners to focus all their energy and attention on the patients. I have 10 years experience of working in an industry where customer care was a priority and I hope to ensure that every patient feels well cared for after visiting the practice.

My excitement for this role comes from seeing the dedication and passion that the practitioners have for their patients and seeing the difference this treatment can make to peoples lives. There is nothing better than seeing a patient walk out of the clinic with a smile on their face.

Out of working hours, I enjoy spending my time with my husband and children. I am also passionate about football and taking care of our three beautiful rescue dogs.
