Meet the team

William Hawthorne

Dr William Hawthorne DC


Will spent a number of years working and harnessing his skills at several different practises before returning to his home town and setting up Macclesfield Chiropractic.


Having been brought up around medical and teaching professions, William has always had a passion for health and fitness.


Having researched and analysed all the options available, he found that Chiropractic matched perfectly with his healthcare interests. After observing his local Chiropractor, he enrolled on the five year masters degree in Bournemouth.


Outside of the clinic Will has a keen interest in fitness, outdoor activities and can often be found walking miles in Bollington with his wife Kathy, young daughter Isabelle and dog Barney. He also loves food!


Will’s aim is to provide unrivalled Chiropractic healthcare to the local community of Macclesfield and to inspire people towards attaining a healthier life, from the inside out.


“I very much look forward to meeting you and helping on your journey towards greater health.”

James Rossi

Dr James Rossi DC


Having moved back to the area where his fiancé Olivia grew up and their wonderful young son Toby, James is looking forward to helping the community of Macclesfield and its surrounding area.


James is a firm believer that the choices made in life affect your overall health, which is what drives his passion to understand the human body and its function. He is passionate about ensuring the best possible health for his patients, family and ultimately himself.


James has enjoyed an active, sporting lifestyle and has completed two London marathons. With sports however, comes injury, which fueled James’ passion for this profession and he has received Chiropractic care from a young age. This has ultimately led him down the path of spinal health, rehabilitation and performance.


James is a firm believer that Chiropractic can help anyone, regardless of age or ability, to be their best possible self.


James, Olivia and Toby can be found exploring and hiking the surrounding areas or enjoying quality family time.

Matthew Hughes

Dr Matthew Hughes DC


Matt grew up in Bristol and has recently moved to the area to be with his partner Megan. Matt is excited to begin practicing at Macclesfield Chiropractic and serving the local community.


Matt previously played a lot of team sports such as rugby, hockey and cricket; from this he began to understand the importance of a positive and healthy lifestyle. Matt has first-hand experience of the debilitating issue that back pain can bring having suffered an injury aged 18. Having then experienced the recovery process that chiropractic care can offer, he felt it was imperative to provide such care to others – this is done through specific and detailed postural and spinal analysis, spinal corrections, strengthening movement patterns and spinal rehabilitation.


Currently, Matt enjoys running and walking in local hot spots with his partner Megan and reading about keeping a healthy mind and body.


“The team at Macclesfield Chiropractic has been warm and welcoming, and I look forward to meeting you and starting you on your journey with chiropractic at the clinic!”

Dawn Cocker


Dawn is local to Macclesfield and has been a sports massage and holistic therapist for over 18 years. She specialises in deep tissue sports massage, sports injuries, rehabilitation and preventative treatments.


Having previously competed in many running competitions, this ultimately led Dawn to choose this career which has spanned 18 years. During this time she has lectured in holistic therapies, sports therapy and massage. She has worked within most sports, and all abilities, including the avid enthusiast and the competitive athlete, both amateur and elite.


Deep tissue massage is extremely effective for muscle fatigue, tension, postural problems, fibrositis, and sports rehabilitation/injury. She provides a truly deep tissue massage concentrating on and finding all your niggles to help you overcome any hurdles in life.


Holistic treatments are great for when you want to just relax and unwind after a long day at work, or as a special treat. These treatments can help your physical, emotional and mental needs.
