“As an elite cyclist, I need my body to be firing on all cylinders however I had been suffering from a very painful back injury which left my leg practical useless in the motion of cycling. I was left very frustrated by this as google searches and a sport science degree left me unable to work out the cause of this pain and thus rectify it. An appointment was arranged very quickly and I was seen by Marianne. First agenda was a full body assessment. From this they were very quickly able to identify my problem area and what they believed was the cause of this back pain. Marianne assessed how my muscles were firing and treatment to correct this in a very knowledgeable experience manner . 3 Sessions later and some very simple homework to complete and I am very impressed the pain is gone and I am riding better than I have ever before ( 3 race wins at elite level in 11 days after the 3rd session). I can hugely recommend Marianne’s services and I will be going in again at regular intervals to get a body MOT and service to make sure it is firing on all cylinders. ”

“Working with Marianne has been a total revelation!”
“Despite being relatively fit and healthy I’ve suffered from chronic lower back pain linked to a rotated pelvis for about 15 years. Sometimes the pain has been so severe I’ve been unable to work. I enjoy horse riding, but would regularly resort to taking painkillers before and after a session, just to see me through.
“Over the years I’ve tried numerous different therapies. But even my most successful treatments have only been temporary. I’d see a therapist who would “set me right” but within a month I’d be back to square one.
“I tried Pilates, but the same thing always happened. The easier classes were fine, but as soon as I progressed to something more challenging, my muscles would spasm and I’d be in agony.
“Tamzin and Marianne’s joint approach of Chiropractic and NeuroKinetic Therapy is unique and has given me hope that there is a solution to my problems.
“The two techniques complement each other. Tamzin ensures that my body is aligned and functioning correctly, Marianne tests my muscles, identifies which are working and which are weak and gives me tailored exercises to practice at home.
“I’m confident that for the first time, I am working with people who will give me a long term solution, enable me to manage my condition and minimise episodes of pain or discomfort. Over the past few months I’ve already experienced a huge improvement in the way I feel and the way I move and I’m hopeful there is much more to come.
“Tamzin and Marianne are both hugely professional, but also friendly and supportive. They have taken the time to ensure they understand every aspect of my condition and offer a completely bespoke solution. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“Thanks for the info. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and now feel hopeful I can correct or at least improve my knee symptoms. It is the best money I have spent on myself in a long time. I felt a little hopeless about it before to be honest (given physio didn’t work) but now that you have explained why that is in a way that I can relate to my body, it all makes sense. You have no idea how positive that is when you just think you are going to have to put up with something. I did feel quite emotional at the start when we were talking about my injuries as I know I am frightened of movement but saying it out loud makes it real. I think you’ve found your calling my friend as it was brilliant. I have already done one of the exercises and I am looking forward to practicing them all”

“I’m so appreciative of all the effort you’ve put into helping me; I shall miss you enormously.”
“It is hard to believe it is 6 years, Marianne, since I spoke to you about your upcoming Pilates classes. I have really enjoyed them and am convinced they have been beneficial to me.”
“Thank you for informing me of your plans, so sorry to be losing you. I really enjoy your classes and have certainly felt the benefit. My lower back problem has disappeared since taking up Pilates.”
“Thanks Marianne and best wishes for your adventure. I have really enjoyed your classes because they change week by week and develop, also because you make it fun! I will miss you but intend to continue!”
