Seeing a chiropractor not only changed Jans’ debilitating childhood headaches, but also changed his life and the direction his future would take…

 

From a very early age Jans was fascinated by the human body and healing, and it was his ambition to enter a profession in which he could bring positive change to his community in this area. Since his teenage years, he had assumed that he was going to be a medical doctor. Whilst studying towards medicine, he began to see a chiropractor about headaches he had been experiencing for years, headaches which medical doctors had been unable to resolve.

 

After 6 months of chiropractic care his chronic headaches were gone and he saw vast improvements in his overall well-being: increased concentration, enhanced energy levels, and the end to a depression that had plagued him for months. Jans was so amazed and inspired at how much his vitality and quality of life was boosted by having a better aligned spine that he transferred into the Doctor of Chiropractic degree at RMIT University, Australia so he too could share this gift with others.

Jans went on to graduate with first class honours, receiving the prestigious Yochum & Rowe Radiology Prize, Clinical Excellence Award, and Meritorious Service Award, which is demonstrates the passion that defines his approach to chiropractic.

 

Upon graduating, Jans worked for four years in one of Australia’s most successful chiropractic practices, continuing his development alongside mentor Dr. Simon Floreani, former president of the Australian Chiropractor’s Association, and Dr. Jennifer Barham-Floreani, Chiropractor and Author of the best-selling chiropractic book, “Well Adjusted Babies”.

 

Along with incredible hands-on experience, it was during this time that Jans’ love of working with families, babies and children was also fostered, a passion which endures today.

 

In 2008, Jans left Australia to work in Scotland, before falling in love with Ibiza, where he has lived with his wife Kate Marshall since 2009. He was elected as representative for the Spanish Chiropractic Association in the Balearic Islands & Levante in 2013 and currently sits on its board.

 

Jans has eight years of University training, two Degrees, and over ten years of clinical experience. He has completed specialist training in paediatric chiropractic and chiropractic care for pregnant women and mothers, and regularly undertakes further training to learn new skills and techniques to help his clients.

In the past few years Jans has developed a series of talks to inspire healthier lifestyle choices, and has volunteered his time in the local community to teach others how a healthy spine and nervous system help us lead a healthy, happy life.

 

Jans is fluent in English and Spanish.

Kate was on her way to becoming a psychologist when a chiropractic check-up changed everything

 

Fascinated since childhood with the workings of the human mind, Kate was completing an Honours degree in Psychology when her partner Jans Olde Wolbers suggested she pay a visit to his chiropractor.

 

Her initial thought was: “There’s nothing “wrong” with me… I have no back pain, so why would I see a chiropractor?”

 

But having seen the dramatic changes in Jans after his chiropractic care she was nonetheless curious and she was open to his enthusiasm, so she took the opportunity to have a check-up.

 

This was the first step on an incredible journey of discovery and radical change in her life to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.

CONTINUE READING..

Although she felt ‘fine’ most of the time, Kate soon learned that her spine was significantly misaligned, and that this was contributing to a number of mild problems she had thought were simply a part of life in a big city.

 

In fact, misalignments in her neck were linked to the anxiety and stress she often felt, the fogginess she woke up with, and the frequent bouts of cold and flu she experienced; misalignments in her mid-back were contributing to muscle spasms and tension in her back, as well as the slight stooping of her posture; and, misalignments in her low-back were negatively influencing her hormonal and digestive systems.

 

She learnt that chiropractic was not about treating these types of problems but rather about getting the body to work more efficiently through a well aligned spine and well connected nervous system. After several months of chiropractic care these imbalances had significantly changed.

 

Kate was so inspired by the lift in her mood and performance she transferred from Psychology to the five year Chiropractic course at RMIT University, Australia which required her to do a gruelling year-long bridging course in basic sciences to be eligible to apply.

 

An excellent student and passionate learner, she graduated with Honours in 2007, winning the Excellence in Chiropractic Sciences award and going on to work in one of Australia’s largest family chiropractic practices.

For the past several years Kate has lived in Ibiza with her husband Jans, where she has dedicated her time to researching and writing about chiropractic with colleague Dr Jennifer Barham-Floreani, an international speaker and author of two best-selling books on chiropractic. Kate is passionate about all aspects of healthy living, ranging from chiropractic to nutrition, exercise, and meditation.

 

Kate is fluent in English and Spanish.

WHAT WE KNOW & BELIEVE

Your body is not an unthinking machine but is a community of 74 trillion intelligent cells all working towards a common goal: to express life & be healthy. Every moment your body is seeking to regenerate and balance itself – you just need to give it the chance.

Disease is common but it isn’t normal; wellbeing is normal. We often see people around us getting sick as they age, however most of these problems come from poor lifestyle choices and are not an inevitable part of getting older.

Healing comes from the inside not from the outside. The most powerful doctor in the world is working tirelessly for you every moment of every day – it’s your body’s innate doctor. If you break a bone, it’s not the plaster cast that heals you, but your body.

Your nervous system is the key to your body’s incredible potential to self-heal. It is the master controller of all 75 trillion cells and is constantly regulating all the organs and systems in your body, including the healing process, to keep you alive and well.

Just like you look after your teeth, your spine needs regular care to keep it healthy. Chiropractic is a powerful tool to make sure your spine is properly aligned and your nervous system is well connected so your body can perform as it should.

To experience ongoing wellbeing in your life, it’s essential to make ongoing healthy lifestyle choices. A healthy spine is a vital part of a healthy body which allows you to live a happy & healthy life.

DISCLAIMER: Chiropractic is still not officially recognised & regulated as a health profession in Spain – click here for details.
CHIROPRACTIC, whilst recognised as a health profession by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and forming part of the healthcare system in most developed countries including European countries such as Britain, France, Portugal, Italy, Denmark and Switzerland – many of which recognise it as a primary healthcare profession – WITHIN SPAIN IT IS NOT A RECOGNISED HEALTH PROFESSION AND IS NOT SUBJECT TO REGULATION BY THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT. Because health legislation is a matter of regulatory law under the sovereignty of each EU member country, the chiropractic profession finds itself in a legal vacuum in Spain, meaning there are no laws to regulate it. The Spanish Association of Chiropractors (A.E.Q.) has petitioned the courts and relevant health and education ministries requesting that Parliament boost the legislative process to officially recognise chiropractic as a health profession in Spain. In countries legally recognising chiropractic as a health profession, the chiropractic degree is obtained after 5-6 years of educational training. Two Spanish institutions currently offer five-year chiropractic programs (with unofficial titles) in anticipation of the legal recognition of the profession in Spain: the Real Central University Maria Cristina of Madrid (UCR) and the Barcelona College of Chiropractic (BCC). The training from these institutions meet all the standards of quality and excellence demanded by the European Council of Chiropractic Education (ECCE), and paradoxically, Spanish graduates may work as official chiropractic health professionals in other countries like the United States, France or England, but not in their own country. The A.E.Q. was created and recognised by the Ministerio del Interior in 1986, and has over 200 members with chiropractic degrees recognised by the European Council of Chiropractic, ensuring compliance with the highest standards of professional practice at a European level. Unfortunately so far, these degrees and diplomas ARE NOT RECOGNISED AS OFFICIAL TITLES IN SPAIN. To ensure your chiropractor meets the quality standards established by ECCE regulation of chiropractic in Spain, check and verify that they are a member of the A.E.Q. in “Find a chiropractor” on the website: www.quiropractica-aeq.com. The regulation of chiropractic in Spain is a matter of political expediency, but in the meantime chiropractic professionals who meet the requirements of the AEQ statutes find themselves in a situation of legal uncertainty and disadvantage compared to other professionals from neighbouring European countries. Additionally due to the lack of regulation, Spanish citizens may be treated by unqualified people claiming to be chiropractors who do not meet the minimum international standards.
