Event: New member of chiropractic team
For: We would like to welcome Gemma Crouch

Hello I’m Gemma Crouch, a Doctor of Chiropractic based at Lushington Chiropractic Clinic in Eastbourne.

When I was a child, I was very sporty and always visited a chiropractor with my mother. I enjoyed the chiropractic adjustments that I received and was intrigued by how it worked.

When I was older and studying at university, I began to suffer from low back and leg pain whilst training for my first half marathon. I tried various things to help relieve my low back and leg pain but wasn’t getting any success. I was really frustrated because even though I was young and fit, I couldn’t do the sports and activities I loved to do. So, I decided to return to the chiropractor I had seen as a child.

The chiropractor I saw was caring and compassionate towards my story. They were very thorough, just like I remembered. Their chiropractic adjustments were gentle and very effective. Within a short period of time my low back and leg pain had resolved and I was back training and performing my favourite sports pain-free.

I’d enjoyed the chiropractic treatment when I was a child and as a student I was really impressed with the results. In fact, the amazing results I felt from my chiropractic care inspired me to become a chiropractor myself. I hoped I would help people as much as my chiropractor helped me.

Before starting my chiropractic education, I completed my first honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. I graduated from the University of Bath where I achieved my hockey colours in 2014. I then began the 4-year Masters in Chiropractic course at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic where my final year research project protocol was acknowledged by the Royal College of Chiropractors.

As a chiropractic student, I was lucky enough to be able to observe many highly skilled and excellent chiropractors in their clinics, including those here in Eastbourne at Lushington Chiropractic. I also attended many chiropractic seminars and conferences, where both chiropractors and students were given the opportunity to listen to the some of the most experienced and well-known chiropractors in the world. It was also an opportunity to hear from the leading members of the field on the most updated scientific research in chiropractic care.

Lushington Chiropractic is Eastbourne’s largest and most popular chiropractic and sports massage clinic. I was really keen to visit and observe the clinic because of the outstanding reputation in the chiropractic profession and locally. You can see the clinic’s considerable professional reputation is reflected by the many rewards and accolades it has achieved, as well as the testimonials and reviews from patients.

Following on from my opportunity to observe the chiropractors at Lushington Chiropractic Clinic during my visits to Eastbourne, I was delighted to be offered an associate position here in the clinic.

Since moving to Eastbourne, I have become attached to its seaside location and community feel and very much enjoy living and working in Eastbourne.  I continue to be very sporty and active and enjoy running along Eastbourne’s seafront.

As a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC), I am passionate and love helping people improve their function and enjoy a healthier lifestyle through chiropractic care. In my experience, I have treated people of all ages from babies to the elderly. I keep a keen interest in sports and I also enjoy treating guests (patients) with sporting backgrounds.

I also have a strong interest in pregnancy and paediatric care and have focused a lot of my continuing chiropractic professional development in that area. Chiropractic treatment helped me when I was a child and a teenager, which I why I enjoy helping people of all ages and stages of life.

If you’re looking for a chiropractor in Eastbourne, or you’ve got any questions, then contact us either to book a consultation or for a free complimentary chat.

Remember, chiropractic care is for the whole family, whatever your age or stage of life.

Event: Hypnotherapist at Lushington chiropractic
For: Jose R. Lobo and Hypnotherapy at Lushington C

Jose is a qualified Hypnotherapist member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations (UKCHO), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the Centre for Sports Hypnosis in the UK, and the National Guild of Hypnotists in the USA.


He has trained in Clinical, Medical and Sports Hypnosis at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis, the UK College of Cognitive & Behavioural Therapies, and the Tribeca Hypnosis & Healing Institute in New York.


Jose’s client-centred approach and his theoretical framework allow him to help people to find their inner resources for a wide range of physical conditions (i.e. chronic and acute pain, MS, IBS, tinnitus, skin disorders, etc.), emotional and behavioural inefficient mechanisms (i.e. stress, anxiety, phobia, depression, unwanted habits, weight management, etc.), and sports and professional performance.


When meeting Jose for a free initial consultation you should ask him to elaborate a little bit further upon his preferred answers for these two frequent questions:


1. Can you hypnotize me? Answer: Why shall I do to you something you have been doing to yourself so naturally well most part of your life and several times of this very day without realising how you do it and how much of your problems may have been created during an inefficient trance? (Who cannot be already hypnotized when reaching the end of his answer?!)


2. Can you treat my condition with hypnotherapy? Answer: I do not diagnose, I do not treat conditions, and you will not be my patient. Even (or mainly) during the most passive, relaxed, comfortable and pleasant moments of hypnosis, you will be a very active “learner”. In fact, I would like you to establish with me a working alliance in which rather than being a “physiotherapist” of your mind, I will be your “Personal Trainer”.


These two answers show why Jose is very glad to be working at Lushington Chiropractic, since:


A. Chiropractors at the clinic believe health comes from within. Hypnotherapists too.


B. Chiropractors at the clinic don’t treat diseases or conditions. As a hypnotherapist, Jose will help you to find the magnificent ‘healer’ sitting in your own mind and the best of you for reaching your goals.

If you would like to book a free consultation with Jose on a Thursday evening just call the clinic on 01323 722499

Event: New massage therapist
For: Welcome Kim Brown

Hi my name is Kim Brown and i'm a sports massage therapist.

I live in Battle but have been coming to Eastbourne, for days out, for years.

I'm originally from London, after finishing my schooling at Marylebone Girls School I came to the Weald to work with horses at a hunter livery yard. I've always loved animals and outdoor life so it was great fun for me. After completing my British Horse Society exams I decided to go to Uni and studied Sports Studies at Brunel in London. I worked in several small gyms back in Sussex but I really wanted to study and learn more..

I had heard that the London School of Sports Massage was the best place to learn all of the best Massage techniques as it had a great reputation with both founder Mel Cash, still very much involved with the day to day teaching at the college, and a high level of accreditation (level 6 now). Coincidentally the course was held at the Regents College in Regents Park, directly opposite my old school! This course was the best thing that I had ever done. There are so many opportunities to expand on what I've learnt. I've been given a great opportunity to learn and practice my skills here at Lushington chiropractic. The scientific studies are constantly discovering that massage can help to improve so many conditions.


I'm an active person and I love training and taking part in endurance events like Triathlon, sea swimming and road racing and it's great to see so many people trying the new events that are out there.

I'm interested in the body: how it moves, how it works, why it becomes dysfunctional and out of balance.

From a massage perspective, keeping people active and doing what they enjoy is my priority - this is why I have made it my profession. I've always been involved in body work of one type or another. I began dancing at an early age starting with Tap and have since travelled to and studied dance forms in Brazil, India and Africa .. taking part in intensive training camp style courses. I've also been a student of the Laban and Phoenix schols of dance.

Alongside this i've enjoyed Astanga Vinyasa Yoga and have witnessed how yoga & Pilates improve posture,  muscle tone and of course flexibility. Many practitioners, including myself, will give guests Yoga stlye stretches to do as a part of their rehabilitation program. There are an extensive range of Yoga and pilates courses available here in Eastbourne.

My earliest experience of massage was when one of my dance teachers was studying 'Shiatsu' - a Japanese style that adjusts the bodys' physical structure for balance and complete energy flow. ( All over the world there are different forms of massage), She practised this on me and I was inspired to understand more. I began to realise that health and wellbeing do not just come about by accident, you have to work hard to keep all of the systems of the body in balance.

During my time dancing and running etc. I have had my share of injuries- torn muscles and stress fractures,  over-use injuries and degeneration. I sought out treatments and often, in the early years, did not know where to look or who to see. It did take some time to find treatments from people that I responded  well to and that I really enjoyed, this is important.  My experience of massage therapists working on me in very different ways,  the osteopathic and acupuncture treatments I recieved and the other more subtle techniques that i've tried have  helped me develop my own style of treatment too. I integrate these experiences with my professional training in a customised way for each individual.

As a therapist  i'm interested in helping people who are in pain or discomfort or who just need a little help relaxing. I have some good experience with athletes, GB runners and youngsters, begginer runners young and old, cricketers, tennis players, rugby enthusiasts and swimmers. Remedially, I use massage to help guests with fatigue, muscle soreness and immuno dysfunction disorders such as Lupus and Fibromyalgia with good results. My varied massage guests from the Eastbourne clinic have confirmed that their symptoms have improved and they feel more relaxed post treatment. Massage can also be effective when used on stroke patients. Some techniques, working towards the spine for example and gentle mobilization help to stimulate the system.

I still like to travel and i've been working with groups of cyclists riding across the Alps and the Dolomites in France and Italy. The 7 day stage races that they attempt are severe and it helps to have a massage at the end of each day to recover as much as possible. I enjoy meeting new people from Eastbourne and all over and listening to their stories about their lives and families.

Since qualifying at the LSSM i've continued studying.  Recently I went on a 'gait analysis' biomechanics course looking at improving running efficiency by changing technique and a Myofacial release technique workshop, a subtler way of moving the skin and muscles.

During a treatment at the Lushington clinic in Eastbourne I will assess a guests posture, mobility and muscle tone, looking for areas of dysfunction and imbalance and formulate a plan of treatment to ease pain and discomfort . Working towards full rehabilitation may mean doing some stretches, strength and conditioning or mobilization at home.

Massage is a great therapy!

Dr Ben-Shah has a gentle but effective approach to treating her guests. She encourages two-way communication with them to make sure that the guests treatment goals are staying on track.

You’ll find that she is very warm, friendly, and kind and it is not difficult to feel at ease around her. 

In her spare time, Dr Ben-Shah enjoys traveling and meeting new people from around the world. After visiting England many times, she fell in love with it, which is why she moved here. She was drawn to Eastbourne because of the clinic.

We’re delighted Dr Ben-Shah found us. She’s the perfect fit for us; she’s highly experienced, hard-working, ethical, fun, enthusiastic and caring. Her focus on the community and genuinely caring about her guest’s wellbeing, which is at the heart of all we do.
