George Ellis grew up in New Zealand where, like most New Zealanders was heavilly involved in the outdoors and sports. There he enjoyed white water kayaking, snow skiing, water skiing, diving, free diving, fishing, hiking, rugby, canoe polo, surfing and pretty much anything that has to do with connecting man to nature.
When he was 14 he paddled off a 8 meter waterfall and immediately felt that something in my lower back wasn’t quite right. “I then did what most people do and ignored it until it was so bad I had to stop all my sports and even school. After several months of trying everything I could think of and being very frustrated about all the things I couldn’t do any more my friend suggested I see his Chiropractor. I was skeptical but I was desperate so I tried it. . I was so astonished with the results and getting my life back I knew from then on what I wanted to become, a Chiropractor! I understand first-hand what it is like when your health stops you from doing what you love and made it my mission to help others without drugs and without surgery.

Joseph was born and raised in Southern California, U.S.A. His first experience with chiropractic began when he was a child playing hockey and suffering multiple back injuries. Treatment from his local chiropractor allowed Joseph to remain active in sports throughout his childhood and his young adult life. As an adult, Joseph worked as an ambulance paramedic where he specialized in emergency medicine. Joseph's experience included life saving interventions using western medicine and holistic alternatives. His concerning nature toward patients in emergency situations allowed patients to feel at ease with him under stressful circumstances. As an ambulance paramedic, intense patient care and transportation caused frequent back pains for him. Joseph supplemented chiropractic care with pain medications to alleviate the pain, but he realized the medicine was only treating the pain and not it's cause. It was then that Joseph decided to leave his job as an ambulance paramedic and become a chiropractor. Joseph graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences with his doctorate in chiropractic specializing in herbal supplements, nutrition, MRT, Graston and muscle stretching techniques. He moved to The Netherlands to provide meaningful and holistic patient care for those who seek wellness and relief from pain. In his time off, Joseph enjoys cooking, reading medical journals, studying history and spending time with his wife and pet rabbit.
