The Team

Dr Tarryn Van Der Spuy (Doctor of Chiropractic)

MChiro


Tarryn Van Der Spuy
Tarryn was born in Durban, South Africa and grew up near Reading before moving to Cardiff to complete a Masters in Chiropractic. She graduated locally from The Welsh Institute of Chiropractic.  Before starting at Optimal Chiropractic, Tarryn was working as a locum chiropractor and worked in various locations around the UK before returning to Cardiff.

Tarryn is passionate about the impact chiropractic care can have on the overall function of the human body and the positive effect it can make to each and every individual. She always aims to provide you with her undivided attention to better understand your specific health and wellness needs. Her goal is to educate and empower her community to better understand the true meaning of health, through the use of natural and safe techniques.  Tarryn really enjoys working with families and those of all ages to help them reach their own individual health goals.

Dr Tom Barnett (Doctor of Chiropractic)

MChiro, LRCC


Tom Barnett
Tom’s passion for chiropractic started after receiving chiropractic treatment in his early-teens after sustaining a back injury playing rugby. Sport has always been an important part of his life competing in a variety of sports including swimming at national level, football, rugby and more recently squash representing Cardiff in the Welsh squash premier league.
His participation in sport has highlighted how chiropractic treatment can play an essential role in helping people to reach and maintain their optimal performance levels and Tom still receives regular treatments himself to ensure he remains as competitive as possible. Alongside clinical practice, Tom takes time out to provide treatment for athletes from elite to amateur level across Wales and Bristol.
Originally from South Devon, Tom graduated with a master's degree from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of South Wales in 2015.
Tom has a belief in taking an overall holistic approach to care which enables him to treat every patient individually. This combined with continually reviewing the most recent, up to date research means he is able to tailor care plans specifically to benefit each individual patient and the challenge of treating a wide array of conditions is something that both excites and drives him.

Jo Warren (Practice Manager)


Jo Warren
Jo had been a patient at Optimal Chiropractic for several years before joining the team here. She initially came before starting some intensive fitness training to check her body was balanced and ready for what she was going to ask of it.
Having always had an interest in anatomy and physiology and natural health she soon realised that Chiropractic was always going to be part of her life.
Along with her belief in Chiropractic, Jo brings with her many years of customer service, administration, logistic and management skills to ensure the smooth running of the clinic and allow the chiropractors to do what they do best ... helping others!
When not at the clinic Jo enjoys most outdoor activities, her horse and dogs taking up a lot of her time. She is a keen runner, enjoys a swim and reading but not at the same time!!

Pippa Jones (Director)


Dr Pippa Ross (Dr of Chiropractic)
Pippa is the Founder and Director of the Optimal Chiropractic & Wellness Centre and is a local girl. Having been born in Cardiff and brought up and educated in the surrounding area. Pippa graduated from the nearby Welsh Institute of Chiropractic and served her associateship in Glasgow before returning home to practice nearby. Since the birth of her little boy, William, she now handles the day to day running of the practice with Jo, our Practice Manager.

Pippa's first experience of Chiropractic was in a time of crisis following a horseriding accident, she was having migraines daily and severe back pain which was taking over every aspect of her life. The only help on offer was painkillers and anti inflammatories and the future looked bleak. A course of Chiropractic care turned things around and she knew she wanted to be involved with this fantastic profession. She still gets adjusted regularly to make sure she stays healthy and prevent future problems.

Outside the practice Pippa leads an active life and enjoys weight training, triathlon and horseriding, regularly competing her horse.
