Registered Osteopath | Clinic Director
Mardi qualified as an osteopath and a naturopath in 1994.
She worked all over the UK, providing treatments to a range of people; from farmers in Lincolnshire to ex-Rugby players in Cardiff, before setting up a clinic in Brixton in 1999. Originally on Acre Lane and known as the Brixton Back Pain Clinic in 2002 she moved to our current premises on Brixton Road in the heart of Brixton bringing her expertise to the creative and dynamic people of Brixton.
An east Londoner by birth she settled in Brixton in 1996 after meeting her partner Fergus (who also works for the centre, as a massage therapist). They both live locally and have brought up two children here.
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 Wednesdays and Thursdays. 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 can help from birth onwards.
