Rosannah Burden
Chiropodist / Podiatrist
Rosannah Burden BSc (HONS)
Chiropodist / Podiatrist

Rosannah qualified as a Podiatrist in 2013 at the University of Brighton. Since then she has worked in various clinics across Sussex including Haywards Heath, Crowborough and Lewes; but now she has finally beginning work in her home town. Even better, she and her mother Rosalind are joining forces to provide the footcare services at Lushington Chiropractic Clinic! A word of warning, they are very similar: not only do they look alike (and have similar names) but both strive for a high standard of thorough, gentle and friendly care.  

Rosannah is experienced in treating a wide variety of foot problems, ranging from general foot care for hard skin and nails to damaged tendons! But whatever your requirements are, she will tailor your treatment to suit you personally. She’ll listen carefully to your “foot story” and work with you to form a plan to help get your feet into the best possible state.

Always an eager artist, Rosannah takes great pleasure in the hands-on nature of her work, especially for orthotic manufacture and the treatment of skin and nail problems. Yet for her, the most satisfying aspect of her work is when someone limps in and goes out saying that they’re “walking on air!”

Recently she has taken a special interest in thermal therapies, which her patients have found particularly soothing for osteo-arthritic joints and strained tissues, but also be extremely good for promoting circulation to the extremities. This has proven popular in cold winters, but less popular (and less necessary) during heatwaves!

Whenever she can, Rosannah roams the South Downs with her (mother’s) dog or by the sea. Her knowledge of footcare often comes in handy on a long hike, checking she has the right footwear and protective materials at the ready. If you’re a keen walker or rambler and you want your feet to be absolutely ready, come and prepare with Rosannah!

She loves Eastbourne and hopes to help as many feet as possible in this very special place. 


Rosalind Burden
Chiropodist / Podiatrist
Rosalind Burden 0
Chiropodist / Podiatrist

Rosalind qualified in 2008, studying podiatry as a mature student, after having concentrated on bringing up her four children and working in various voluntary capacities. She has lived in Eastbourne for over 30 years and has been privileged to know and work with people from the very young right through to end of life. Her natural interest and concern in others very much includes their medical condition and this has coalesced in studying podiatry and the many medical conditions affect the feet and walking.

She is keen to help make your feet fit for purpose whatever the reason that means you need her podiatry or chiropody skills. Whether you have hard skin and corns, difficult nails; in-growing or just too tough to cut safely yourself, or if you are suffering from anything in your feet caused by complex medical conditions she is dedicated to finding and providing the treatment that is best suited to you.

People are Rosalind’s prime concern, their experiences and health in body, mind and soul. Feet are affected by the health and lifestyle choices of the person who owns them and in turn their health and condition greatly affect their owner. Rosalind aims to provide a service which enhances the health of the feet and so the health and comfort of the whole individual. She just loves it when people sigh with relief as they walk out of her clinic saying how much better they feel!

Her interests and knowledge have been enhanced by numerous extended volunteering trips to the SouthSudanese/Kenyan border where she has been able to witness a complete contrast in lifestyle to the West and how feet fare there. So her work experience includes the NHS and African Mission Hospital as well as private clinics in East Sussex.

She is thrilled to be working in conjunction with her amazing daughter Rosannah to help the lovely people of Eastbourne walk well!

Education and where it started:

Oly has always been involved in sports and fitness from a young age as it has always been his main passion in life, he played representative sport and ultimately wanted to develop a career in it, so a sports science degree seemed the right way to start his career path.

Oly has completed a BSc Hons degree in Sports Science and a MSc degree in Applied Exercise Physiology both studied in Eastbourne at the University of Brighton.

The Personal Training career:

After graduating Oly went on to complete his Level 2 Gym Instruction and Level 3 Personal Training qualification and has been providing an elite and professional personal training/strength and conditioning service over the last 8 years and counting...

Oly’s main specialisation is athletic/strength development and injury rehabilitation, his experience from strength and conditioning and sports massage therapy arms Oly with a two-pronged focus at helping his clients combat their injuries.

But don’t think you need to be an athlete to see Oly at Lushington, many of the principles apply to many people with varying conditions and various age ranges. His own personal experience being a fast bowling cricketer for 25 years has meant he’s had nearly every shoulder issue under the sun, so shoulders are a particular specialty of his! ?

Since Oly has been with us here at Lushington chiropractic he has done courses on kinesiotaping (RockTape), instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM), stretching, movement and mobility courses using self-treatment tools such as foam rollers, cupping (check his foam roller Friday videos and cupping blogs on www.backblog.co.uk), lymphatic drainage among many others.

Kim Brown LSSM
Massage Therapist

Kim profile image 337842544

Kim Brown is a sports massage therapist and began working here as a locum in January 2017. Things were going so well, building a guest following, that when an opening at the Lushington Chiropractic Clinic came about, she was offered the job.

Kim is originally from London, after finishing her schooling at Marylebone Girls School she came to the Weald to work with horses at a hunter livery yard. Kim has always loved animals and outdoor life.

Horses, and the associated anatomy and physiology training and movement studies which accompanied the lifestyle, were her 1st lead into bodywork and massage.

After completing her British Horse Society exams, she felt that she wanted to return to her dance and sports background and decided to go to Uni and studied Sports Studies at Brunel in London. She worked in several small gyms and completed sports coaching certificates to teach circuit and strength classes but really wanted to study and learn more.

Kim had experienced sports massage/dry needling and other bodywork techniques when injured herself and had friends who were studying various forms of alternative therapy around her who were a great inspiration. She decided to change jobs and become a therapist, she wanted to learn at the best school for massage around and went to the London School of Sports Massage in London. This highly accredited school (level 6 now) also has a great reputation with founder Mel Cash still very much involved with the day to day teaching at the college.

During this course Kim expanded her knowledge and interest in the science behind the various massage techniques and became well-homed in the approach to guest treatment. It has facilitated bringing Kim's experiences of dance, athletics, yoga and strength and conditioning skills into one role as an empathetic therapist whose principle objectives are to remove pain and discomfort and encourage functional movement for long-term wellbeing.

Kim enjoys the opportunity to learn and practice her skills at Lushington Clinic and keeping up to date with the scientific studies which are constantly discovering ways that massage helps to improve so many conditions. Kim's interest is in the body: how it moves, how it works, why it becomes dysfunctional and out of balance.

Kim has experience with athletes, GB runners and youngsters, beginner runners young and old, cricketers, tennis players, rugby enthusiasts and swimmers. Kim also enjoys helping people with fatigue, muscle soreness and immune dysfunction disorders such as Lupus and Fibromyalgia. 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.

Since qualifying at the LSSM Kim has continued studying. She has attended a 'gait analysis' course at the Olympic running track, this is a biomechanics course looking at improving running efficiency. A Myofacial release technique workshop, a subtler way of moving the skin and muscles to create space and promote healing. The most important addition to her skills list has to be Medical Acupuncture. Also known as dry needling, this form of pain relief and muscle release has grown in popularity as its effects are appreciated. it really works!

Kim believes that it is never too late to begin treating a chronic ache, pain or postural change. Often, results can be felt straight away and positive changes in the body occur. This leads to a healthier mental outlook.

During a treatment with Kim she will assess your posture, mobility and muscle tone, looking for areas of dysfunction and imbalance and will formulate a plan of treatment to ease pain and discomfort. Working towards full rehabilitation. Kim is one of our more experienced therapists. She has an ability to relate to guests young and older, especially those new to massage.

Simone Oates
Homeopath & CEASE Therapist
Simone Oates
Homeopath & CEASE Therapist

I have always been interested in healthy living and natural medicine and have always tended to search for solutions when conventional medicine did not have the answers for health issues for me and my family. I have always believed that illnesses should be cured and not palliated. I very rarely took conventional medicines always trying the natural alternatives first.

Training as a homeopath seemed to be the obvious next logical step. One reason was that I love studying and I knew that with homeopathy there is so much to learn, it is never ending and I love the idea that I am continually improving my professional development.

I find homeopathy exciting and rewarding as so many people recover their health, often after years of having attempted to solve their health issues using conventional medicine, as I did.

I have also trained as a CEASE therapist, having been completely inspired by Tinus Smits’ book ‘Autism beyond despair’. This is homeopathy for children on the autistic spectrum.

I am also inspired by The Liz Lalor Fertility Programme and am delighted to be using this method of treatment. This programme has an amazing success rate of 87% working over a four month period with women up till the age of 42.

I originally trained as an Occupational therapist and have been working as an Occupational therapist in Community Mental Health for the past 2 ? years and previously in Elderly mental health including dementia for 18 years. I’ve worked in mother and toddler groups for children with learning difficulties and also at Barnardo’s.

Administrative Officer
Diane Fletcher
Administrative Officer

Hi my name is Diane and I joined Lushington Chiropractic team in October 2012 to cover Jade's maternity leave with her first child. This was initially a 6 month contract. I was slightly nervous to start with as I had only ever worked for HSBC Bank for 28 years prior to this. However, 4 years on I can happily say I am still here. My role has changed in that I now just work as an admin assistant covering back office duties for a few hours a week.

I have been married for 26 years to Martyn and we have 2 daughters, Elena and Jemima. I am originally from Lancashire but have enjoyed living in Eastbourne for the past 22 years. In my spare time I enjoy along with the sport, meeting friends, going for walks, skiing and gardening.

Claire Wood
Clinic Assistant
Claire Wood
Clinic Assistant

Claire Wood – Clinic Assistant

Hello everyone, I’m Claire and I’m one of four clinic assistants here at Lushington Chiropractic. I joined this incredible team of practitioners in 2011 and have never looked back.

A little bit about me, I was born in Eastbourne and have lived here for most of my life. My Dad is an Eastbourne boy, but my mum was born in Stafford however lived her young life abroad in Saudia Arabia and Africa. I am one of four children, have 2 sisters and 1 brother and feel extremely lucky that my family live close by and get together regularly.

I really love living in Eastbourne, my home town and enjoy the sense of community we have here.

For most of my working life I was with the civil service and worked in various departments from payroll where I acquired my payroll qualification to road freight statistics. I have always taken a keen interest in the body and studied anatomy and physiology and acquired a diploma. I absolutely loved learning about how the body functions and wanted to know more.

When I had an opportunity for voluntary redundancy at the civil service I decided to take a leap and completely change my career. Not knowing at the time what I was going to do, but knew I needed a new direction.

This was the best decision I made as lead me to the Lushington Chiropractic Clinic. An amazing warm, friendly, professional clinic with various highly trained practitioners helping the health of the community and beyond. I have a great sense of pride knowing I am part of this clinic and community.

Joining Lushington Chiropractic has been transformational in so many ways for me. I have enhanced and learnt new skills. Attended several chiropractic seminars and enjoy monthly team clinical coaching sessions. I can tell you about the history of chiropractic, how it first begun and what it is today. Did you know that Chiropractic can help a person’s health in many ways, not just for back pain? Learning about chiropractic has been truly enlightening for me, especially for my own health.

How Chiropractic Has Helped Me

Since childhood I had endlessly suffered headaches and migraines. I had resigned myself to the fact that I just had to live with them. Anyone who has ever had a migraine knows that these can be debilitating and can affect their lives in many ways. I had lost days with a migraine, unable to function. You can imagine how I felt when I found that chiropractic could help me.

I now have regular chiropractic care alongside massage and happy to report that I have fewer headaches and migraines. I have also noticed that I am generally a lot healthier and don’t catch as many coughs and colds. Chiropractic is now and will be a big part of my life. it has changed my outlook on my health and had a positive impact on my wellbeing. Our bodies are truly amazing, and chiropractic helps the body to work at its best.

Having received the benefits, myself, I referred my family and friends to the clinic for their care. Did you know there is no age limit to having care? Babies to elderly can all have chiropractic care.

Best Part of My Job Is Seeing Lives Transformed with Chiropractic Care

I’ve talked about finding chiropractic and my own personal journey, but I wanted to share with you the most enjoyable part of my job. This is at reception when I get to spend time with all the amazing people that come through the door. I’m very passionate about helping people and I like to care for each person that has chosen to come to Lushington Chiropractic.

My name is Judy, I have been working as a clinic assistant at multi award-winning Lushington chiropractic here in Eastbourne since January 2014

Working at a chiropractor in Eastbourne

It couldn’t be more different from my original thoughts of what it would be like to be a clinic assistant!  

The job is very varied, people are often surprised that we don’t sit behind a desk all day long! also that it takes 4 of us to cover all the hours the clinic is open. We are always running around doing a variety of jobs including, filing and dealing with washing between answering the phones and making appointments.  But I love my job, I love meeting new people and hopefully putting them at their ease if it is their first visit to our popular clinic. I also really enjoy seeing regular faces each week and building a rapport, we really value our longstanding guests.

All the team members are so friendly and welcoming and extremely knowledgeable, and I feel I am always learning, one of my favourite sayings is ‘every day is a school day’!

Every so often we have a ‘clinical coaching ‘session where a chiropractor or massage therapist will speak to us about something new they have learnt or a particular technique they use, and it is always so interesting and usually creates good discussions!

 What I didn’t know about Chiropractic before I joined the team

I didn’t know that Chiropractors here at Lushington chiropractic treat muscle, joint and trapped nerve type problems in all parts of the body not just backs.

I was amazed to find out that they can treat all ages from tiny babies to very senior citizens, in fact my 93 year old Dad comes to see Dr Mykel Mason regularly to keep his neck moving freely.

I have had chiropractic treatment and massage myself for a shoulder and back problem and it has really helped me a lot, I now know a lot more about what not to do to try to stop the problem re-occurring, regular appointments for maintenance treatment is also very important.

 Lushington and Health

One of the things I think is unique about the clinic is the fact that the practitioners at Lushington work together for the maximum benefit of the guests, so quite often a guest will have chiropractic treatment from one of our 5 chiropractors combined with a massage with one of our 5 highly qualified massage therapists which produces effective results quickly.

The chiropractors and massage therapists meet every week to discuss cases so that the treatment can be very specific and personalized to each person

Guests who combine their treatment adjust well and adjustments tend to last longer

The long -term solution is a commitment to overall wellness. The key to healthy living, ‘wellness’ is a comprehensive approach to care that focuses on the body’s natural ability to heal itself when properly maintained and protected

 I hope you have enjoyed reading about my experience of working at and being a guest of Lushington Chiropractic, if you need a little bit of help with something you have been ‘putting up’ with or have just started suffering from you couldn’t be in safer hands, just give us a call and hopefully I will be speaking to you soon!

Sabrina Appleyard - Clinical Assistant

Hi, I’m Sabrina and the newest member to the team here at Lushington Chiropractic, joining as clinic assistant alongside Claire and Judy in September 2019.

I’m Mum to my three lovely children Teri, Lewis and Gracie who keep me very busy when I’m not at work. I have a Labrador named Spod (Strange name I know but we let the children name him) I moved to Eastbourne 15 years ago and will never look back, I love it here! Eastbourne is such a lovely place to bring my children up. It took a bit of getting used to the quieter pace of life, but its home to us now and we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!

I like to keep fit and have previously run in the Brighton marathon and two Eastbourne half marathons in aid of Parkinson’s UK, Cancer Research, and Make some noise Children’s charity. I also came 5th in a charity carp fishing competition a few years ago raising over 1000 for local charity Dreams Come True, where I was the only lady against twenty-nine men.

I come from a Dental background, after working as a dental nurse and receptionist in Dental practices for the last 25 years I decided I would like a career change. The advert for the position here jumped out at me and after meeting with James and the team I knew I was going to love it here. From the moment I started everyone gave me such a warm welcome and I got to know many of the chiropractic guests straight away.

It wasn’t until I told friends and family that I was starting work at a chiropractor clinic in Eastbourne that I found out how popular it is. Many of my friends in Eastbourne have visited Lushington Chiropractic themselves and raved about James and his team.

I had heard about Chiropractic treatment but thought it was just for bad backs, how wrong I was. Since starting here I’ve been lucky enough to observe the Chiropractors and massage therapists in action and now I have a greater understanding of what it all involves and how the two treatments together compliment each other so well.

Chiropractic isn’t just about helping bad backs it can help with so much more.

Of course, bad backs are one of the many problems they can help with, by taking the time to find the root of the problem and designing a personalised plan combining both Chiropractic and Massage therapy to help alleviate the symptoms and get you “back” on track (excuse the pun).

Listening to the Guests reviews and the Chiropractors advice I felt as though I had been missing out for all these years and looked forward to having my first visit so I could find out first hand what it was all about and see what improvements I could make.

I’d like to say I wasn’t nervous but I was, really I shouldn’t have been the whole experience was both professional and informative and Gary put me at ease from the moment I walked through the door.

I had suffered with an achy and occasional painful right shoulder for many years due to my previous job, Gary explained what the problem is, what he can do for me and how to help myself with stretches, exercises and better posture. So I’m happy to say that I can recommend chiropractic treatment through first hand experience and am happy to answer any questions if you too are a little nervous.

So If I haven’t yet met you, please do say hi and introduce yourself to me, I look forward to meeting you all!
