Holly May Nutrition Advisor

MChiro LCC MSc APP Paeds DC

After graduating from the Anglo-European-College-of-Chiropractic, Holly began her career as a chiropractor, going on to complete a post graduate master’s degree in Chiropractic Paediatrics.

Over the past 11 years in practice, Holly has witnessed a shift in the overall perception and accountability for health, with many patients turning to her for health, fitness and nutrition advice; leading her to pursue a master’s degree in Human Nutrition.

Having two young children herself, Holly understands how busy life can be, and how health can sometimes be put to the bottom of the list. Therefore, Holly tries to keep all nutritional advice reasonable and realistic within our client’s lifestyles, helping to encourage lifelong nutrition rather than a quick fix.
