Kate Cox - Thrive Chiropractic


Disc Herniation Specialist
Postural Correction Specialist

Kate was born and raised in the USA. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the University of Northern Iowa and her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, Georgia. She has extensive postgraduate studies in Childhood Neurological Behavioral Developmental Disorders, Lumbar Disc Derangements (such as Hernia’s, Disc Bulges, Stenosis, Sciatica, etc.), and is currently working towards her Masters in Functional Neurology with the Carrick Institute.

Kate was a member of the 2006 USA Rugby World Cup Team. To achieve such world-class physical performance, it takes more than just talent. To reach such heights, high performers need an expert team of trainers, chiropractors, physio’s, sports psychologists, nutritionists and coaches who program or influence our every waking hour (and even our non-waking hours).

With not only her educational background but also her high-level fitness science and training methodology she experienced as a professional athlete, Kate has an unparalleled advantage when working with patients. You simply won’t find this at your local 24-Hour Gym or nearest chiropractor. She understands that when you are exposed to a better support system (that includes your chiropractor, physio, trainer and coaches) and you are motivated to move forward with your corrective plan of attack, everything is possible.

Kate has lived in the Netherlands since 2009 and is married with three lovely children. When she is not in the office she can be spotted tackling playgrounds, working on her own physical training and exploring the Netherlands. Kate is a registered member of the NCA and SCN chiropractic associations.

Rosa Physiotherapist Menstrual Cycle Therapist - Thrive Chiropractic


Menstrual Cycle Therapist

Rosa was born in Amsterdam and raised in Barcelona, where she completed her ballet degree and worked as a dancer. In 2016 she moved back to Amsterdam to become a physiotherapist. It was at the dance conservatory where she was first introduced to basic anatomy and biomechanics, which sparked her initial interest in the human body.

During her physiotherapy degree, she completed internships in Barcelona, South Africa, India, and the Netherlands, giving her extensive knowledge about different treatment approaches. In her first years working as a physiotherapist she mainly focused on treating sports injuries, with the big advantage of knowing from first-hand how limiting it feels to be injured. Through the years she became passionate about women’s health and completed courses to treat pregnancy conditions, pelvic girdle pain, and stress & burnout complaints. She believes in the power of a regulated nervous system in order to promote self-healing.

In 2023 she graduated as a Menstrual Cycle Therapist, after having struggled with hormonal imbalance for years. Almost 90% of women deal with some sort of complaint related to their hormones, and it can be extremely challenging to find a specialist who can help you solve the root cause of the complaints (instead of recommending some sort of birth control and painkillers). Through diet adjustments, better stress management, supplementation, and by engaging in a cyclical way of living, a lot of complaints can be improved if not resolved. As a menstrual cycle therapist, Rosa helps women who are struggling with conditions such as:

  • Painful and heavy periods
  • Irregular cycles
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
  • PMS, mood-swings, cyclical headaches or migraines
  • Stress & fatigue symptoms
  • Post hormonal birth control symptoms
  • Post-natal symptoms
  • Low libido
  • Hormonal weight gain

When she is not working, Rosa can be found strolling in the park in summer and chilling at home in winter. Her favorite hobbies are reading books about hormones, playing tennis, participating in women circles and watching Sci-fi movies. Rosa is a member of the KRF Association for physiotherapists and CAT-collectief as a cycle therapist.



 My name is Kimera Reddy and I would like to introduce myself to you. In 2022 I moved from Johannesburg in South Africa to the Netherlands. I obtained my Masters of Chiropractic from Durban University of Technology, in 2015.

I like to help people of all ages, from young to old. In addition to chiropractic treatments, I believe it is important to provide patients with a clear explanation of how to minimize pain by improving their lifestyle, daily exercises, and ergonomics. I am a calm and compassionate person and look forward to helping people reduce emotional and physical stress.

I recently became a mother and now have ‘fresh knowledge’ about what chiropractic care can do for pregnancy and babies. I also have a special interest in animals and hope to one day be a certified animal chiropractor.


Our physiotherapists utilize a holistic approach and understand that everything is connected. They understand that the human body is complex and to achieve full correction, collaboration is needed to get to the root of your problem. This type of expertise requires physiotherapists that are not only highly educated but expert therapists that can “apply” their knowledge and skills.


Strength & Conditioning Coach
Personal Trainer

I’m a certified PT, Olympic Weightlifting, Conditioning & Crossfit Coach. After coaching and training in Aukland, New Zealand for the last 2.5 years I am back in Amsterdam!
My goal is to help people become strong and resilient humans & athletes.

I see a lot of people train without intention, forgetting to harvest their “low-hanging fruit”. They get inferior training results and lose motivation in the process. This is often a result of a lack of information/education, simply “Not knowing what to do”. I constantly aim to educate my athletes on how to become better, train better, and identify weaknesses.

Because everybody is different, and sometimes life throws a little curveball, training needs to be adaptable. I place a lot of emphasis on frequent (re)evaluation, feedback and analysis of the training. This way my trainees are actively involved – generating better results. Additionally, having some ownership over your development just makes it way more fun. And in the end, that might be the single most important thing: just have fun!

Paolo was an “Athlete for Reverse Movement Performance” competitor, but had to stop training due to a shoulder surgery, but thanks to strength training he has been able to come back and compete.

“I’ve always been fascinated by human mechanics and highly influenced by Squat University and Project Invictus. I think that the base of a perfect human being is a perfect human mechanic and that is the goal to achieve with every athlete.”








Kim - Thrive Chiropractic


Pregnancy & Postpartum

Kim coaches people through Functional Training, Pre- and Postnatal Training, and Mobility. Her motto is: “moving is good but moving well is better”. The body achieves what the mind believes by training consistently, good nutrition, and a good night’s sleep. Age shouldn’t be an excuse for physical goals.

Kim is an avid surfer and rock climber. She used to climb at a high level and participated in competitions. After an almost drowning accident, while surfing, she became very fearful. This led her to in-depth research about the complexity of the brain and how to get a grip on it. Because of this, Kim is also a Surf Performance Coach. She trains surfers and helps them overcome fear and to be comfortable underwater through breathing techniques.

Kim is married and is a proud mom of a beautiful son. In her private time, you will find her in the ocean, in the climbing gym, training, or spending quality time with her family. She is an orthomolecular therapist in training.

Are you tired? Do you suffer from intestinal complaints, migraines, skin complaints such as acne or have you been dealing with (vague) complaints for a long time but you do not know where this comes from? Or maybe you are just curious about the status of your vitamins and minerals.

The EMB blood test can offer a solution. If the test shows that there are deficiencies, you can make up for the deficiencies by adjusting the diet. Learn more about Thrive. Nutrition & Lifestyle >>
