Welcome Chiropractor Karen Habershon to Team Octagon!


Hi Karen, Welcome to Team Octagon! 

So when did you first become interested in Chiropractic? 

I’ve always loved working with people and knew from a young age that I would do something people focused. I spent a lot of time doing work experience in multiple areas of interest such as with the police, in Court and A&E. My thoughts at that stage were to become a police officer until I stumbled upon chiropractic!
The chiropractor I spent time observing was so passionate about his job, much more than any of the other health professionals I'd encountered so that was the deciding factor I wanted to be like him, and I haven’t looked back since. There’s nothing better than being approached by someone in pain not knowing which way they should turn and being able to help them. I just wish more people knew about chiropractic.
I always look forward to receiving chiropractic treatment myself to keep me in tip top condition!

What's your favorite part of the job day to day?

I love meeting people and helping them improve their quality of life educating them on better lifestyle choices to encourage a long, happy and healthy lifestyle.


What are you up to when you're not helping people at the Octagon clinic?

I’m generally quite active. My biggest passion is surfing but I’m far from a pro and the fact the stunning south west coast line is so far away makes those coastal trips even more special. While land locked I make the most of exploring London with friends at the latest pop up events, comedies and shows. I also spend most days doing some sort of exercise such as cycling, swimming, running and the gym.
I also return to my rural roots regularly to make the most of my parent’s farm. Now I’m in the big smoke I certainly appreciate my foundation and love going back for the fresh air and beautiful animals.


West London recommendation please?

Cycles and walks along the river and in Richmond Park are a nice chilled thing to do at the weekend, perhaps stopping for a roast on route. The river is stunning day and night in addition to the wildlife you can find dotted about as you head further west. I often take my camera out and see what I can capture.
The Crabtree pub (W6) is quite vibrant and I also love visiting and supporting the wonderful West London local businesses, the service and produce are always way better than the chains! [Editors Note: vote for the Octagon Clinic in 'Hammersmith's Most Brilliant Businesses Awards here. Thank you!]
Artisans café is a great café and they have Lamingtons! I also like a local Dim Sum place towards Hammersmith called ‘Steam Restaurant’.
