About Us

what we do


Hi, I’m Marie Bouchayer, your chiropractor at Chiropractie Pura Vida – Voorburg Den Haag.

Marie was born and raised in France, between Paris and Normandy.

She began studying chiropractic as a teenager because she wanted to help people with her hands and heart.

In 2017, after graduating from IFEC (Institut Franco-Européen de Chiropraxie), she understood that chiropractic is not only about relieving pain, it is also a way to regulate the nervous system and experience a new, clear and reconnected life.

During that time, she also studied hatha yoga, focusing on breathing techniques and specializing in women’s health and pregnancy as a chiropractor. She enjoyed living and working in Paris for 5 years.

Today, Marie is excited to join Pura Vida Chiropractic. She looks forward to meeting you and using her skills and experience to improve your health and vitality.

Hi, I’m Victoria Hego, your chiropractor at Chiropractie Pura Vida – Voorburg Den Haag.

Why chiropractic?

Here’s a little bit more about me …

From the age of 14, I knew I wanted to become a chiropractor.

At the time, my mum was suffering from nagging chronic pain spread in her body. She had tried everything from pain medication to traditional physiotherapy. Nothing seemed to work.

When she started to see a chiropractor, she then saw a dramatic change not only in the level of pain, but also her mood, her sleep and her general energy level.

She was initially a bit skeptical regarding chiropractic, as a doctor coming from the traditional medicine world herself. But at that point, she had nothing to lose in trying out this new approach of health.

A few weeks into the care, she could simply not deny the relief she was experiencing. She as so thrilled with the improvement of her health that soon enough the whole neighbourhood knew about her amazing chiropractor!

As a teenager, I found extraordinary to see that it was possible to help so many people only with our hands. That’s when I made the decision that I would be a chiropractor too.

My Approach

Fast-forward 10 years later ….

After graduating from chiropractic school in Bournemouth (UK), I worked in a high-stress environment which eventually lead to a burn-out, chronic physical pain, and all the symptoms of exhaustion.

Quite ironic for a healthcare professional, isn’t it?

The reality is that I had learnt how to take care of patients through training, but I had never learnt how to take care of myself.

During that really tough time, I made it a priority to learn more about healing in general and not only about “cracking backs” ( = chiropractic adjustments)

That healing journey lead me to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain in 2021 where I walked more than 700 kms in 30 days by myself.

After that, I traveled through Central and South America to meet different kinds healers and chiropractors from whom I learnt a lot.

Unique Framework

I wasn’t interested anymore in only “cracking people’s back“, although it’s great fun and works amazingly. But I wanted a deeper understanding of the fundamental pillars of health and well-being.

Because the mere absence of disease or symptoms doesn’t mean you’re healthy.

Through that journey, I discovered everything from the Polyvagal Theory, Nervous System Regulation, Sympathetic Dominance, the most recent neuroscience research to ancient mayan healing arts.

All of this became a motivation for me to start my own chiropractic practice.

I want to help my patients in this unique way, combining formal chiropractic training and my own experience with health and healing.

My goal is to help you heal by sharing with you everything I learnt on my healing journey so that you can better walk through yours.

“In order to change, people need to become aware of their sensations and the way that their bodies interact with the world around them. Physical self-awareness is the first step in releasing the tyranny of the past.”
