Principal Chiropractor Dr. Wen Oates DC MChiro

Lagos Health Prinicpal Chiropractor Dr Wen Oates DC MChiro

Doctor Wen was born in Beijing where, after leaving school, she trained and worked as a liver transplant and A&E nurse in Beijing's top city hospital.

In 2002, Wen met her English teacher and broadcast journalist husband Geoff at a Bournemouth language school...and the rest, as they say, is history!

She studied and trained at Europe's premier and longest-established chiropractic university, the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, England and graduated with a Master of Chiropractic degree and Merit. In the UK, Doctor Wen was treating babies, children and the elderly, as well as looking after office workers, burly firemen and builders. Here in the Algarve, Dr Wen's patients are mainly golfers, sailors, retired expats, locals and holidaymakers.

Away from our Lagos clinic, she enjoys cooking and paddling in the ocean...she hasn't learned to swim yet! At their home near the clinic, Wen and her husband are 'mum and dad' to two adorable British Shorthair pedigree cats.

By the way, our patients LOVE Dr Wen! See what many of them have to say here.

Clinic Director Geoff Oates

Lagos Health Chiropractic Clinic Director Geoff Oates

Clinic Director Geoff is a former broadcast journalist, radio presenter and English teacher who, until recently, spent 16 years with BBC Radio Solent in Southampton. Away from the radio studio, Geoff was also teaching English to foreign students, which is how he met Dr Wen!

Geoff likes to read...his favourite authors are perhaps a little surprising - Agatha Christie and Charles Dickens. And as a former radio DJ, his musical tastes are wide and varied, ranging from the harmonies of the 1940's Andrews Sisters, the rock & roll classics of the 1950's, the pop songs of the 60's, the production style of Barry White and Abba in the 1970's, to the rock, pop and power ballads of the 80's. If you like the same things, we'll have to arrange a Lagos Health karaoke night!

Geoff likes languages and can speak some German and Swiss-German, which comes in handy when our German and Swiss patients come for treatment. He also likes tenpin if he puts his back out on the lanes, Doctor Wen is there to help!
