Meet the Team


Meet the Owner/head Therapist, Millie Darlington.

Millie is a farmers daughter and a keen horse rider so her business, as most things in life, is revolved around them.  She was brought into this line of work when her father, in 2011, sustained a major injury to his spine. He received various treatments that were failing to work, however he met David Allen MFHT at Warrington, who worked wonders and having had this treatment he needed it more regularly at home. So this is how it all started, in the sitting room sat on a stool Millie randomly rubbed her dads feet and back. After many trips to David Allen she decided to do a Sports Massage Level 3 course during 2014 and qualified January 2015. This is when Spring Back Therapy took off.

Millie went on to study in Brighton, Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy, qualifying in May 2016 and furthering her studies on to the BTEC 6 Diploma in Advanced Clinical and Sports Therapy which she will graduate June 2019. She has studied in Liverpool covering Temporomandibular Joint Pain (TMJ) in 2016, and has gained her Advanced Myofascial Release Certificate in Brighton 2017 she has also completed a certificate in the ‘Dorn Method’ in Stratford upon Avon.  However she typical practises in the clinic with the new upcoming ‘Turn Therapy’.

Meet Therapist, Chloe Johnson.

Chloe has similar interests to Millie with her love of animals. Chloe went to college at Reaseheath studying Equine Physical Therapies Chloe had to do 200 hours of work experience, some of these hours were in dog kennels and others on a farm feeding calves. Chloe recently had a re-think about what she wanted to do and it was only when she got chatting to the owner on the farm that she got to know that they went for treatment with this , yet to be known, “Millie” and told Chloe to get in touch just to ask about the job and see if it was something she was interested in. Chloe joined the team in February 2018, Spring Back Therapy enrolled Chloe onto a Sports Massage Course, whilst learning this Chloe sat in the clinic learning the “Turn for the Better” technique. Once Chloe had qualified in her Level 3 Sports Massage and had enough experience in the clinic she started on the journey with clients. Chloe is currently working on a part time basis, and through Spring Back Therapy, is continuing to expand her knowledge on various different advanced massage courses.

Turn Therapy

Turn Therapists are qualified in their own right as Sports Therapists, Remedial Massage Therapists or Physiotherapists before going on to train in the techniques of Turn Therapy. A feature unique to Turn Therapists is that their training includes instruction and assessment using the computer controlled BaxymSpinal Simulator. This guarantees that their palpation and treatment skills have been tested and approved to a consistent standard in the manner of a flight simulator for aspiring pilots. No therapist is allowed to qualify without passing this assessment.
