In the latest installment of the CB1 interviews, we spoke with Jamie who co-runs the Restore Health Centre located at WeWork, 50/60 Station Road. A business that has recently moved to CB1; the Centre focuses on chiropractic and functional medicine. In this interview, we chat to Jamie about the new centre and about CB1.
What services do you offer at the Restore Health Centre?
At Restore Health Centre we offer a variety of different services to help people to function and feel better for life.
As chiropractors primarily, we are experts in spinal and nuero-musculoskeletal health, and can therefore help with a range of problems such as sciatica, neck/back/joint pain, disc herniations, headaches and migraine, and sports related injuries. Our chiropractor Dr Judith Johanne Torstvedt, DC is also a Webster certified chiropractor which makes her uniquely qualified to treat pregnant ladies and babies and support a smoother pregnancy, delivery and start in life for newborns.
Our other main service which we are very passionate about is Functional Medicine. This is a emerging new model of healthcare in response to the overwhelming increase in chronic health conditions, and allows the practitioner and patient to work together to identify and address the underlying causes of their health concerns, instead of solely using medication to manage their symptoms. Many of our patients who approach us for this service have an existing diagnosed condition and are under the care of a medical professional, but they are looking for guidance on nutrition, lifestyle and environmental factors which may help them to manage their condition and improve their quality of life more effectively.
You will be doing an Educational Series on the first 3 Wednesdays every month. What will these presentations involve?
That is the plan, yes! We are very passionate about health and wellness, and understand it can be a confusing world with endless amounts of opinions and information, so we would like to share our knowledge and the facts with the public on the key things they can do to significantly improve their health and the way they feel. The goal of the educational series is to educate people on fundamental aspects of health, so that they can make more informed and better decisions for themselves and their family. We will be setting up an events page on our website soon to promote this so be on the look out!
Why did you choose CB1 and 50/60 Station Road to locate to?
It’s been quite a random, long and interesting story in how we ended up at Station Road in Cambridge, which would probably require a whole other interview, or website. We were initially working exclusively online by providing video call health consultations with clients, and were on the look out for a co-working space where we could work out of. Coincidentally, and as if by destiny, we found out that a WeWork was opening up while huddling over our laptops in a cafe and signed up to a hot desking membership. After a month of being there, we saw the potential of how much WeWork could support all the things we wanted to achieve, and decided to open up a proper clinic where people could come and see us face to face.
What are your first impressions of CB1?
We had been looking for a place to live and work which inspires and stimulates us the right way for a long time, and found that Cambridge and the CB1 district in particular does just that. Everything is very clean and fresh in CB1, but there is still character about the place and lots going on.
How do you feel about becoming part of the community at CB1?
We love rubbing shoulders with so many amazing and innovative businesses, but also really like how there is a real sense of community in CB1 as everyone appears to really want to support one another no matter how big or small your business is.
Our door is always open! If anyone would like to come and get to know us and find out what we do a little more, then please get in touch at email@example.com. If any local businesses would also like to collaborate we also provide exclusive events, work shops in addition to our regular services at a corporate level.
What are your hopes for the future of the business and the CB1 Estate?
We seem to have a never-ending amount of ideas and ambitions, but we want to become the go to people for health and wellness in CB1 and Cambridge, and to advance to a national scale in support a paradigm change in the way healthcare is provided and the way people see it.
For the CB1 estate we would like to see more of the same – more development, events and more entertainment/restaurants to make it a great place to work and live!
