Dr. Daniel Brown: Principle Chiropractor & Director

From a young age Dr. Brown has had a strong interest in Health, Nutrition and Fitness. He was first introduced to the Chiropractic profession by a Chiropractor at a careers convention when he was 15 years old, and decided at that point that this was the career for him. He was accepted to study at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth on a five year course and since then has never looked back.

Dr. Brown is an Aberdonian born and bred, however was schooled in Edinburgh. He has many sporting interests including rugby, thai boxing, shooting, rock climbing, scuba diving and snowboarding, but can think of nothing better and more refreshing than getting out into the Scottish hills.Read More>>>

Understanding the importance of keeping up to date with the most current research and education, Dr. Brown travels around the world to attend courses and seminars on the Art, Science and Philosophy of Chiropractic.

Josh Goodey

Josh Goodey: Associate Chiropractor

Josh was born and brought up in a small town in Buckinghamshire, England, and now resides in Edinburgh, after joining the Chiropractic Life team. Josh has always had a keen interest in the human body and how it works, which after finishing school lead him on to study Sports and Exercise Science at The University of Leeds. It was during this time that Josh was first exposed to the philosophy of Chiropractic, and after some further research and observing Chiropractors in practice, he soon decided that this was the career for him.

Following the completion of his BSc Honours Sports and Exercise degree at Leeds, Josh embarked on a Masters of Chiropractic degree at The McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Oxfordshire where he achieved first-class honours and won the award for ‘Adjuster of the Year’.Read More>>>

During his 4th and final year Josh recalls seeing patients who were achieving great results with their Chiropractic care, but felt there was more that he, and the patient could be doing to improve their overall health by combining lifestyle changes with their care plan. “If a person can think well, move well and eat well with a clear and un-interfered nervous system there is no limit to the human potential.” This is what initially led Josh to the 8 Weeks to Wellness programme, as it incorporates all of these elements, with Chiropractic at its core. Consequently, it was at an 8WW conference that Josh met Dr. Dan Brown, and it soon became clear that they both shared the same passion and vision for the future of Chiropractic, Health and Wellness.

After visiting Chiropractic Life and meeting the team who also possess the same passion and vision, Josh knew that this was where he wanted to be. Josh looks forward to helping as many patients as possible to achieve their potential through a Chiropractic lifestyle.
Outside of clinic his interests and hobbies include: Gym, playing and watching football, music including live gigs/events, food and exploring all Scotland has to offer!
