Hello I'm Lisa Clark co-founder of Clarks Healthcare. I have always been an active person enjoying many different sports, particularly netball – playing at county level. I've therefore had my fair share of sports injuries over the years!
At aged seventeen I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis – an inflammatory bowel condition that resulted in many hospital stays and high dose medications, which gave me horrible side effects. I was told ulcerative colitis was an incurable disease and my only option was to have part of my bowel removed and to take medication for the rest of my life! This was not an option I wanted to choose and it sparked a passion to learn how to heal myself.
In addition to completing a four year osteopathic degree I have travelled around the world on a personal healing journey, working and learning from leading experts and health pioneers. I am happy to say, with determination and the will to succeed, I completely turned my life around, healing myself without surgery and high dose medications. My energy levels have rocketed, my concentration is great, joint pains are very rare and my overall health and well-being have improved to the extent I enjoy an active life which includes skydiving and snowboarding.
I'm very passionate about teaching others how to improve their health and passing on my knowledge and experience as this is what I did to heal myself, therefore I'm living proof that you can overcome a debilitating disease and recover, taking full responsibility for your life and achieving your goals.
Hello I'm Michael Clark co-founder of Clarks Healthcare. I first became interested in my health at the age of 6 when my parents took me to a local martial arts club. I became hooked on martial arts and loved nothing more than training and learning new techniques. Having competed at high levels over the years, I had numerous injuries which always recovered quickly with Osteopathy. I therefore began my medical career by completing a four year Osteopathy degree. I was passionate to start my own clinics and founded Clarks Healthcare with my wife Lisa in 2003.
Setting up several medical practices was fulfilling but my work-home life was out of balance. I was over-working and soon my energy levels were dropping and I was becoming burnt out, over stressed, tired all the time and had difficulty sleeping. Although I enjoyed helping people overcome pain and rehabilitating patients, my declining energy coupled with close family illness sparked me to delve deeply into why people become sick and what I could do to restore my own health.
This led me into an on-going educational journey, learning from leading educators and clinicians from different disciplines in the UK and internationally, to hone and continually develop the latest and most effective skills. I learned that I could be a busy person and still maintain great health and energy. Once I addressed the root causes that were blocking my own health as well as my many limiting beliefs, my energy, vitality and happiness returned better than ever! Our Programmes are an amalgamation of all my clinical experience and everything I have learned and continue to learn. I love sharing my knowledge and experience with clients of all backgrounds and levels of health. Everything I learn I apply to myself so can say from experience that it works!
