Mardi Jamieson: Clinic Director and Osteopath
Mardi qualified as an osteopath and a naturopath in 1994 and since then she has worked all over the UK, providing treatments to a range of people; from farmers in Lincolnshire to ex-Rugby players in Cardiff, and now she brings her expertise to the creative and dynamic population of Brixton.
An east Londoner by birth she settled in Brixton in 1997 after meeting her partner Fergus (who now manages the clinic with her). After having their son Sam in 1998 she set up Brixton Back Pain Clinic on Acre Lane. Esther arrived in 2001 and in 2002 the premises moved to its current central location near Brixton tube and Brixton Therapy Centre was born.Mardi is very proud of the team she has at the centre, many of whom have been with her from the beginning. Together they offer a unique service to Brixton and the surrounding area.
Mardi says: "my aim has always been to offer my clients a fully integrated complementary health care service. Most of my clients come in with neck or back pain but I've always been aware that there can be many causative factors. So if I need to refer to an acupuncturist to help reduce inflammation for tendonitis or to a homeopath for help with eczema, or indeed to a counsellor for help with a stressful life situation. I have a team of experienced therapists that I know well and can refer my clients to with confidence."
More of her time these days is spent running the centre but she still treat patients on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. She says that what she has enjoyed over the years is getting to treat whole families, or networks of friends, seeing children being born and families grow and knowing that she has created a service from birth onwards.
