Originally from Australia and graduating as a Doctor of Chiropractic in Australia, Mr. Christian* has lived in the UK for over a 13 years and has help bring positive changes to our health system.
Mr. Christian found himself seeing a chiropractor at the age of just 6 months old because his mother, who had received extensive nursing training, decided to raise him and 4 other siblings drug-free. As a nurse, she realised the place for medicine was simply for emergency care and not for health care. Therefore, she committed to the health of her family, enabling all of them receive regular chiropractic throughout life.
Christian Farthing is not a medical doctor, but is a Spinal Health Specialist and consults for the BodyWell Group, located in the heart of Blean, near Canterbury in Kent. Mr. Christian Farthing has more than 20 years experience in Chiropractic and brings a true international component for wellness and healthcare at the BodyWell Group in Canterbury. He elected not to study medicine and become a medical doctor because he felt that it does not get to the root cause of problems. No longer does he consult as a Chiropractor in the UK but draws on his extensive clinical expertise and experience to provide patients and professional sportspeople with a solution, rather than a temporary fix.
The BodyWell Group would like to communicate and confirm that the title “doctor” does not imply or infer that the health professionals working at BodyWell are Medical Doctors. Whilst we engage and have a working relationship with many other health professionals, including medical doctors, Tracy Harley and Mr. Christian Farthing are NOT medical doctors. Mr. Tracy Harley graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic from AECC in the UK. Mr. Christian Farthing graduated with a double degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic and with the prestigious Graduate of the Year and Clinical Sciences Awards from RMIT in Australia.

Mr. Christian was quoted during an interview recently by a media publisher,
“It makes more sense to correct and solve the problem for a patient rather than provide a temporary solution and have them return repeatedly for treatment. People are seeking permanent and long lasting results as they are getting sick and tired of repeated visits to therapists and doctors without any results.”
Since graduating from university studying Chiropractic at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and receiving the most prestigious Graduate of the Year Award and Clinical Sciences Awards, Mr. Christian Farthing has extensive post graduation education in Electro-Diagnostics, Paediatrics, Nutrition, Digital Radiography, Clinical Neurology, Mindfit and Total Body Conditioning.
