I founded the Bodyworks Health Clinic over 16 years ago – building the dream clinic I’d always wanted to work in and, over time, building a dream team.
Here in Marbella we are so fortunate to have access to a huge range of international leaders in their field and I am lucky that so many have chosen to work with us, in person in the clinic or in collaboration at their own establishments.
I’ve been working and training in my passion, physiotherapy, for over 40 years. And most of my colleagues had more than a decade of international experience when they started working with us. We probably have over a century of collective knowledge in the building!
But the most important thing for all of us – YOU.
Helping you get better using the best tools and techniques to create an effective and practical treatment plan.
And if the best treatment option isn’t available within our team we will make sure we organise a speedy referral to the best person to help make YOU feel better. Because your health is so much more important than our ego.
English Chartered Physiotherapist,
MCSP, SRP, HPC, OCPPP,
Grad Dip Phys.
Col No 2070.
I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in January 1978 having studied and trained with the RAF. I then worked in the NHS (so much great training but way too much paperwork!).
Then I moved to private practice in Jersey before giving up the hustle and bustle to live in Spain. But I’m obviously a workaholic and decided to set up Bodyworks Health Clinic in 2004.
A boom, a recession and a global pandemic, training with elite specialists on 3 continents, 2 decades on and it’s still the best choice I ever made and has allowed me to claim specialisms in Chronic or Persistent Pain, Knees, Feet, Migraines and Headaches and the Lymphatic system
Closer to home I support local Walking Football teams and Youth Football Clubs as well as dancers, golfers, padel players, kite surfers of all ages and levels and write my Weekly Wanderings newsletter with tips and insights from the health industry (you can sign up over there on the right!)
Meet our international and multidisciplinary team who are based at Bodyworks.
We are lucky to have other independent practitioners who are based @ Bodyworks.
They work up and down the coast, internationally or online as well, but see patients @ Bodyworks when it suits them.
And, if you think you might want to be based @ Bodyworks, drop us a line and let’s get you set up! The more the merrier!
A surgeon I’m actually happy to recommend! And believe me I can count those on 1 hand. Specialising in the Anterior approach for hips (the recovery time is amazing!) and revision surgery for knees, Dr Joris is a careful, talented, minimally invasive surgeon. Surgery is a last resort, but make sure that you choose the best.
A quiet, behind the scenes specialism, we often forget about the importance of the people who put us to “sleep”. A key part of a minimally invasive operation is a quick recovery time, and the anesthetic is a critical part of that. Dr Peter will often consult with Dr Joris so that you are making an informed and educated choice about your surgical options.
Edit, our speech and language therapist, has her Masters in supporting bilingual children and 10 years experience in helping children with a wider range of speech and communication issues. As the mother of tri-lingual children (and tri-lingual herself) she is experienced at supporting the children and their parents through these difficulties.
However her experience and time with Estelle also means she is able to support adult patients who have speech difficulties due to a wide range of disorders.
Nurse, Naturopathic Nutritionist, Colonic Hydrotherapist
Lisa has worked her magic on patients in London and Dublin. Originally training as a nurse she had a dramatic personal journey to the world of Digestive Health.
She’s our guru for all things digestion – from what to eat, how to figure out what not to eat, how to eat for your hormones and, of course, how to clear the pipes! Going in and coming out – she’s the expert on your bowels and digestion!
Physiotherapist, Osteopath and Acupuncturist
Italian by birth Daniele has spent the last few years working in London. But has now joined us in Marbella and also practices in Mijas.
Daniele’s huge physiotherapy experience are complemented by acupuncture and dry needling as well as osteopathic techniques and treatment options. It’s a wonderfully energetic session!
He is able to advise on pre and post surgery rehabilitation as well as cortisone injections and other invasive techniques.
Geoffrey has worked with me for over a decade. His therapy is incredibly gentle and yet has the most profound effects. I’ve been his patient, I’ve seen the results with others. I am still terrible at explaining it! But I trust him with my patients most in need of a gentle return to health.
