Can the treatment help me?
I believe it can. Since graduating as a chiropractor in 2008, I have met a wide range of people who have sought my help for various problems. Here is what a few of them have said about their experience.
"Marie is nothing short of amazing. Thanks to her I am no longer taking a heavy mix of painkillers and living in a drug fog. A once a month treatment enables me to be active and I no longer suffer insomnia from pain. Marie is a lovely person who cares about her patients and will go above and beyond in helping them. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Since seeing Marie just twice about lower back pain and a 'tennis elbow'...both issues are now no longer troublesome and full range of movement/strength has been restored. Marie is kind and attentive and explains everything she is doing. She has magical hands and I would recommend her to anyone with musculoskeletal problems."
"This lady is fantastic. Hurt my back badly, could barely stand straight. She sorted it out and could always relieve the tension in my neck. Highly recommend Marie Ayres."
"You were absolutely invaluable in getting me through my pregnancy. I had pelvic girdle pain from around 16 weeks and was really beginning to struggle with the discomfort. Your expert touch definitely got me through the pregnancy without needing crutches, or becoming a lot more immobile. I still benefit from the occasional visit to you, but you worked your magic brilliantly!!
Born in Honiton in Devon, as a child I moved with my mum to Marlborough in Wiltshire. My formative years were spent in the city of Bath, where I developed an interest in complementary health. I now live in north London, but continue to maintain my practices in Marlborough and Cardiff.
I graduated from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in March 2008 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Human Chiropractic, before working in various clinics in Wales and the south west. I completed my Emmett Practitioner training in 2011. In 2016 I qualified to teach Somatic Movement. I have since focused my professional development on Pain Neuroscience, Yoga Based Exercise For Back Pain, Health Psychology and Mindfulness Based Pain Reduction (MBPR). Although my practice is now dedicated to helping people with pain and mobility issues, I am also a qualified aromatherapist and infant massage instructor and have been involved in complementary healthcare for over 30 years.
My own experiences of living with a persistent pain condition inform my practice, so the varied techniques I use are tried and tested by me personally. Of course you are not me, which is why I am never prescriptive and work with your preferences and choices to find the most appropriate interventions for you. I've learnt that it's never one size fits all and it is rarely one intervention that will provide one simple solution to a range of potentially complex issues.
