Quality Chiropractic Care for you


Meet Carolyn Smyth - Chiropractor

Carolyn Smyth Chiropractor“Right from an early age I knew that I wanted to have a career in healthcare, so much so I was even one of the winners of a Radio One poetry competition aged 8, with a poem entitled ‘When I grow up a nurse I’ll be’! Well it didn’t quite work out that way as whilst I was studying in the 6th form, a family friend who had been greatly helped by a local chiropractor, introduced me to chiropractic. I knew then that I had found my true vocation and the rest as they say is history!

I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic here in Bournemouth in 1991. I have spent many happy years working nearby in Blandford and more recently had the real privilege of being a co-founder and partner in the innovative Healthy for Life Chiropractic Bournemouth.

Having had three children of my own, my interest in chiropractic paediatrics led me to studying and practicing a form of chiropractic called the NeuroImpulse Protocol. NIP has re-ignited the passion I have for chiropractic for people of all ages, and I see it as a real privilege to be able to utilise those skills, to help to make a difference in the lives of those under my care. Studying NIP has also opened my eyes to the vital role our lifestyles make not only to the outcome of chiropractic care, but to our overall health and well being. I passionately believe that the things that have the greatest impact on our health are what we eat, how we move , and how we think!

Having previously worked at Madeira Medical Centre for ten years I am delighted to return here to launch my first solo chiropractic venture, ‘Healthfirst Chiropractic’ with all the advantages of continuing to work in a team environment, working closely with the GP’s and other health care professionals. I look forward to welcoming you to the practice!”


I always found Carolyn to be highly professional but very approachable; she had a lovely manner about her which put my daughter at ease.

I can happily recommend Carolyn and
remain very grateful for the treatment she
gave both myself and my daughter.
