Meet the Team

Chiropractor Romford, Dr. Dela

Dr. Dela Ackuaku

I’m Dr. Dela Ackuaku. I am a graduate of McTimoney College of Chiropractic. I have completed training in other chiropractic modalities that include Syntropy Full Spine adjusting and BGI posterior geometry. I have had a passion for alternative wellness for over 10 Years and in this time I have trained and worked as a sports massage and reiki therapist. My passion about the body’s innate ability to be well and desire to support people to becoming well and and maintaining wellbeing lead me to train as a Chiropractor. I love the field of personal development and have participated in Unleash The within with Anthony Robbins and attended Abraham Hicks Seminars. My greatest passion by far are my 2 sons and a close second is my love for NBA basketball. I am excited to back at RIFC serving patients.

Hello all, my name is Wendy and I am the Wellness Manager and Therapist at the Centre. I have worked with Dr. James for twelve years and really enjoy helping patients reach and maintain their optimum state of health. It is so very fulfilling seeing patients leave with a smile on their face after their care sessions with us, it is always so rewarding when they then introduce friends and family to the practice expanding our help within the community. It is a pleasure to work in such a wellness driven practice with such an amazing and supportive team.

I am very active outside of the Centre and try my best to lead by example. I love my holidays, especially my motorbike breaks away with my husband and Harley family. I look forward to meeting you at the Centre!

I have been a qualified Level 3 Personal Trainer for the last 12years and more recently have qualified as a Level 5 Sports Massage and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapist. I like to use my experiences as an athlete and a professional to really get the best results for my clients.

Karen S- Chiropractic Assistant

Although I am relatively new to working within chiropractic care, I know how beneficial it is for people’s health and well-being. Having suffered myself for years with migraines, back and neck pain, within a few months of having treatment, my pain and migraines have virtually disappeared and now I just have regular maintenance adjustments with Dr James who keeps the migraines at bay.

The clinic is such a friendly and welcoming place to work, it’s a constant hub of activity and it’s great meeting both old and new patients and seeing their progression.
