Gary Kirwan was a chiropractor based at the Naturality Wellness Centre in Berkhamsted.
He started his Chiropractic education in Johannesburg, South Africa studying at the University of Johannesburg Department of Chiropractic. He then transferred to Bournemouth, Dorset to complete his Chiropractic degree at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic to graduate in July 2004.
He then went on to start his practise life in Chester, Cheshire before deciding to move back to South Africa in 2005. He and his wife, Sam, started and ran a successful Chiropractic clinic in the suburb of Fourways in the city of Johannesburg. This was until May 2014 when they decided to relocate back to the UK to be closer to family.
The Kirwan family decided to choose Berkhamsted as their new home after only visiting for two hours. Seeing all the fit and active people running and cycling, then having lunch in one of the high street restaurants which offered a gluten free menu option highlighted Berko as a great place to live.
Gary has been fortunate to have assessed and treated a variety of patients of all ages. This ranges from newborn babies, infants, toddlers, teenagers, and adults to the elderly.
He has also been requested to treat TV celebrities, like the WWE wrestlers, and VIP individuals wherever they need him in the world. He has had the pleasure of doing live radio interview discussions and helping newspaper and magazine journalists write about Chiropractic and general health topics.
Gary has a keen interest in optimal long-term health. This includes studying pain management, anti-aging theories, supplements and diet, psychoneuroimmunology, dynamic neuromuscular stabilization, proprioception medicine by Simon King, Foot Levelers orthotics and more.
He is a keen biohacker, meaning, he like to experiment with various new interventions on himself to test for positive or negative changes. Biohacking is understanding you can try change your body for the better with new technological advancements and knowledge. He blogs about his health experiments at biohackerslab.com and one of his biggest health tests was when he lost 17 kg in weight by trying out a low-carb high-fat diet and drinking something called Bulletproof Coffee which you can read about here. He even did a talk about this at Here cafe on Lower Kings Rd. and showed the audience how to make this type of butter coffee.
Gary has a passion for healthy movement at whatever age you are and believes in trying to optimise the other 99% of your life, not the 1%. This includes how to walk better, stand easily, sit comfortably, sleep better and generally not waste unnecessary energy in activities of daily living. This is where you spend 99% of your time.
