Priscilla So – M (Chiropractic) DC
From a young age Priscilla had suffered from headaches – she remembers at about the age of 4 asking her mum what it was called when you had a stomach ache in your head? She assumed it was normal to have headaches and continued through her teens to take paracetomol and other pills to help ease the pain.
In her early 20’s Priscilla was involved in a car accident; her car was rear ended and written off. She visited a chiropractor on the advice of a friend, to treat the whiplash injuries she had sustained, and found that regular chiropractic care not only helped to ease her whiplash injuries, but noticed that her regular headaches had disappeared.
Priscilla had already studied for a business degree and been working for a few years afterwards, when she decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and train as a Chiropractor. Having worked at a busy and successful clinic in Nottinghamshire for the past 5 years, Priscilla felt it was time to move things closer to home and chose Matlock to set up the So Healthy clinic.
“I know what it’s like to have chronic headaches and feel like it’s something you have to live with forever. Chiropractic has helped me so much and it’s so rewarding to now be able to help other people and see the improvements that chiropractic care can bring to their quality of life”

Esther Kong – DC MChiro
I first became interested in studying chiropractic in my early 20’s after experiencing severe back pain which left me unable to move for nearly 2 weeks. After trying all manner of conventional treatments I was introduced to a chiropractor and after only a few treatments I was back on my feet again and feeling much better. I was so impressed with how chiropractic helped me that I decided to study at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth gaining a Masters degree in Chiropractic.
I enjoy working with people of all ages and draw from a variety of techniques to help alleviate pain. My main priority is to identify the root cause of the complaint as soon as possible and then tailor my treatment to best suit your needs. Identifying and treating the root cause as early as possible increases the chances of success and reduces the chance of the injury recurring in future.
I am passionate about chiropractic and believe it can help everyone. I am especially interested in treating children and feel they can really benefit from gentle and safe chiropractic care.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you back to optimum health.
