Marie has over 20 years of diverse experience in physiotherapy and is absolutely passionate about helping people with complex chronic pain and combines traditional physiotherapy techniques with acupuncture and other holistic approaches.                                                                                                Marie is the only locally approved practitioner with Arthritis Action UK in the Salisbury and surrounding area. Arthritis Action is a UK-based charity that approached Marie in 2016 to deliver their subsidised treatments locally after reviewing the Harnham Physiotherapy ethos and Marie’s extensive approach to the management of arthritic conditions. AAUK continuously seeks feedback from every client seen – to ensure that excellent service is consistently being provided. Marie sees clients subsidised by AAUK up to twice per year and gives extensive advice about arthritis management for any joint and offers pain relief treatments. Arthritis can be managed effectively and further joint degeneration can often be slowed down with the right multifaceted and holistic approach. Anyone with a diagnosis of arthritis can self refer to AAUK on this link. Marie is a full member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and the British Association of Hand Therapy (BAHT).                                                                                         Prior to starting her career in physiotherapy in 1999, Marie gained a degree in European Business at Loughborough University and worked in Human Resources for a multinational car manufacturer.  Marie qualified as a reflexologist with the Association of Reflexology in 1999 and continues to work very holistically as a practitioner.                                                                                      When not working, Marie juggles running a business with a very busy family life with two young children. Now that the children are both in school, Marie is back to regular golf at Salisbury and South Wilts Golf Club.

The Community Team

We are very proud of our exceptional community team.  These physiotherapists independently provide help in people’s homes and in the care setting and this requires a truly caring, mature, and personal approach as well as a wealth of experience to assess and consider often very complex medical histories and presentations.  The diversity among our team allows us to match the right client with the right therapist or work together utilising our different skill sets for the same client.  Occasionally the clinic based team also gets involved to help in specific cases and between us all, we can make a real difference to our clients in terms of physical function, pain relief and quality of life.
