Dr. Monica Handa

Dr Monica Handa ChiropractorDr Monica DC’s passion is related to all things to do with getting healthier. She decided to become a chiropractor at the tender age of 14! Initially in her desire to help people she wanted to do medicine but she was inspired to take a different route. This was as a result of her parents achieving amazing results from their chiropractor in Surrey in the mid 80’s. Her mum had problems after her last pregnancy and received the usual advice at the time which was bed rest and corsets. This is a time Dr Monica DC remembers vividly as she was having to help her mum so much with her youngest sibling. Eventually her mum sought help from a chiropractor who was not far from Dr Monica DC’s school.

Dr Monica DC would meet her mum at the chiropractor’s office and they would get the bus back home together. This inspired Dr Monica DC to look at becoming a chiropractor; her youngest sibling Dr Gopal Handa DC is also a chiropractor – it really is a family affair.

Dr Monica DC went to the first Chiropractic Institution in the UK at the time, Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth. She completed a 4 year BSc degree and achieved a 1st in 1993. She started working in August 1993 as an associate in Wilmslow and in Warrington. She bought the Warrington practice in 1998 after it been open for 10 years.

Dr Monica Handa ChiropractorA lifelong passion of striving for the best she can give has meant she has attended more courses that she cares to remember. These have ranged from sports, sacro-occipital technique, applied kinesiology, paediatric courses, nutritional courses, spinal rehabilitation and management of scoliosis to name but a few. She was the first female in Europe to qualify in CBP (idealspine.com) in 2005 and then again one of only a handful of practitioners worldwide to gain an advanced qualification in CBP in 2014.

She has always loved to give back to her immediate and wider community and has received training from her association in handling the media; she has been a mentor for many chiropractors and has held numerous positions within various chiropractic organisations and is currently chair of the RCC‘s orthopaedic, rehabilitation and exercise faculty and sits on the BCA‘s x-ray standards committee. She has conducted several chiropractic mission trips to Cuba and India. The practice also has a charity cause they do a year round donation to.

She has published an article and is an author. Dr. Monica DC is regularly asked to perform speaking engagements and has spoken at UCA events and SCA events.

She has performed chiropractic mission trips to Cuba and India, is a mum to two amazing children, Nik and Karina and is married to Paul Henshaw the other practice Director. In her spare time Dr Monica DC enjoys going to the gym, taking the family dogs out and keeping up with her extended family across the globe.

Dr. Roberta McGoldrick

Dr Roberta McGoldrickDr Roberta DC’s interest in Chiropractic evolved through her love of horse riding throughout her childhood. Following a significant riding injury at the age of 15, she was informed she wouldn’t be able to ride again.

Devastated by this information and after seeing a variety of consultants without any success, she then discovered Chiropractic. Following a tailored plan with consistent care, she was able to return to horse riding feeling fitter, faster and stronger than ever. She experienced far fewer injuries and noticed a significant improvement in her body’s ability to heal in a much shorter time span.

As Dr Roberta matured, she realised that if a 15-year-old could be told to stop doing the things they loved, imagine what people in their later years were being told. Having had the experience of a significant spine injury at such a young age, she has made it her mission to help people of all ages and abilities to reach their optimum health via Chiropractic care.

Dr Roberta graduated from the University of South Wales in 2019. Her Interest in Chiropractic has since brought her to Warrington Optimum Wellness where she is an Associate. She continuously seeks to advance her skills and is currently specialising as a CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics) Practitioner.

Dr Roberta believes that no two patients are the same and that meticulously accessing each individual case is the best possible approach to aid a patient’s care. She strives to heal patients to the best of her ability and believes that with thorough investigations, care programmes and patient engagement, this can be achieved.
