The chiropractor

My name is Gitte, I am Danish born and bred, a traveller by heart and since 2004 living in the Netherlands. My first encounter with the Netherlands was on a solitary bike ride from Denmark to Dublin in 2003. I’ve lived a year in Australia and am very partial to Canada where I feel very much at home and have visited more than 20 times.

I graduated in 2004 from the University of Southern Denmark, having successfully completed the 5 year Masters programme in Clinical Biomechanics. During my studies I was politically active in various committees and once the Chair of the World Congress of Chiropractic Students. In the Netherlands, I followed the one year Graduate Education Programme, earned my Doctor of Chiropractic title and since then at work in different practices and provinces. I'm currently active as the president of the Netherlands' Chiropractors' Association (NCA), the oldest and largest professional association of chiropractors in The Netherlands.

My approach with patients is holistic – meaning that I will look not only at your pain but spend time looking for the pain generator. Hence my seminar activities are mainly directed towards functional neurology, neurochemistry, nutrition, extremities, rehab/sports and soft tissue work.

In my spare time, I like to work out, read and travel.
