Arthur Tovar, Bsc, D.C.,Hons, CSCP, (USA) Owner of Thame Chiropractic Clinic

Arthur Tovar, Doctor of Chiropractic, (D.C.) graduated Magna Cum Laude (honours) from Sherman College of Chiropractic in South Carolina, USA. Arthur has the degree Doctor of Chiropractic and also holds a Bachelors in Science.

Before, he previously practiced in Boston, MA (USA) and then moved to Oxford, UK, where he was self-employed at Oxford Chiropractic Clinic in Headington for 6 years.


As a Chiropractor Arthur looks for the cause of the problem. The focus is on the correction of vertebral subluxations thus allowing the body to work free of nervous system interference. This means allowing the body to work at its fullest potential. Arthur has a passion in working with expecting mum’s and children and is a member of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Paediatrics Association).

Arthur’s mission is to empower people to find their innate healing potential and release their inner doctor to express true health. The reason we all have symptoms and ill health is because we have lost something which is true health. True health is the body’s capacity to heal and work with full capacity. We can recover true health by allowing free communication between our brain and body. As a vitalistic chiropractor Arthur’s focus is to detect and remove nerve interferences, also called vertebral subluxations, in your spine so that you can fully express life.

"I just want to write and say a special THANK YOU to Arthur for working his miracle on my back. These past few weeks I have sprung out of bed in the morning with just joy - I no longer feel like an old fossil in pain. Thank you so much. Brilliant, I'm telling everyone I meet with back troubles. Its remarkable. I work as a play therapist which often means spending many hours on the floor in back tormenting positions. "

"Chiropractic has absolutely enhanced my health; it has been my savior many times when I could not function.
Also now that I exercise regularly, my visits are less frequent and more about fine tuning and keeping my body align, but nonetheless they are an essential part of my health regime. I would recommend anyone to go see Arthur Tovar at Thame Chiropractic Clinic."
