Mr CT Herholdt 975034
After qualifying at the Durban University of Technology in 2003, C.T. travelled to Ireland where he practiced for 2 years. On leaving Ireland, he worked in Middlesbrough for two years before joining a clinic in Maidstone in 2007. In 2012 C.T., together with his wife Ingrid, started Blackfen Chiropractic Clinic.
C.T.’s first introduction to chiropractic was as a teenager, when a neck injury from playing rugby led to him seeing a chiropractor. It was his first impression of the chiropractic adjustment and the effect that it could have on a person’s health that motivated him to study chiropractic.
C.T.’s enjoyment of sports has led him to work closely with local sports teams, but it’s the challenges of a family based practice that C.T. finds most interesting and rewarding.
Since qualifying, C.T. has continued to be a keen student of chiropractic. In 2012 he attained his Advanced Certification in Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT). He is currently embarking on coursework in Chiropractic Neurology.
C.T. is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (Reg No: 02456) and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association.
