The Team


C.T. Herholdt

After qualifying at the Durban University of Technology in 2003, C.T. travelled to Ireland where he practiced for 2 years. On leaving Ireland, he worked in Middlesbrough for two years before joining a clinic in Maidstone in 2007. C.T. currently sees patients in the Maidstone clinic and at Blackfen Chiropractic Clinic.

C.T.’s first introduction to chiropractic was as a teenager, when a neck injury from playing rugby led to him seeing a chiropractor. It was his first impression of the chiropractic adjustment and the effect that it could have on a person’s health that motivated him to study chiropractic.

C.T.’s enjoyment of sports has led him to work closely with local sports teams, but it’s the challenges of a family based practice that C.T. finds most interesting and rewarding.

Since qualifying, C.T. has continued to be a keen student of chiropractic. In 2012 he attained his Advanced Certification in Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT). He is currently embarking on coursework in Chiropractic Neurology.

C.T. is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (Reg No: 02456) and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association. On a personal note, C.T. and his wife enjoy the outdoors and go camping as often as possible. In 2014 he became a proud father to his son, Callum. C.T. is an avid golfer and enjoys watching rugby test matches at Twickenham.

      Jennifer Cox

      Jennifer graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth and has since moved to Kent to work. Jennifer decided to pursue a career in Chiropractic after seeing her mother suffer with recurrent episodes of lower back pain over many years. With the episodes getting more and more frequent, Jennifer saw the frustration of her mother in not knowing why she was repeatedly getting this pain. This led Jennifer to have a keen interest in preventative and rehabilitative work, through Chiropractic treatment, to decrease the predisposition of individuals to chronic pain.

      In her free time, Jennifer enjoys going to the gym and playing netball.

      Jennifer is also registered with the General Chiropractic Council (Reg no: 03994) and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association.
