Our Chiropractors have completed a Masters in Chiropractic, are members of the British Chiropractic Association (B.C.A.) and registered with the General Chiropractic Council (G.C.C.). Treatments in our clinics covered by all major Health Insurers.

Our team of highly-skilled practitioners blend techniques from a wide range of fields and specialisms, so you can be assured that we have the right tools to help you get back to being the best that you can be.

As well as the hands-on techniques, we want every patient to understand about their condition and help them learn why this has happened, and what they can do to help manage it.

Marianne Delahaye MSc (Chiro) DC
Clinic Owner and Chiropractor

Originally from Bournemouth, Marianne is a registered Doctor of Chiropractic and established Avon Chiropractic Healthcare in 2003. She graduated in 1998 from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic with a Master’s Degree in Chiropractic.

Marianne has broad experience from private practice, her special interests include rehabilitation and pregnancy related pain and treating children. She uses a range of different techniques and often combines treatment with corrective exercises to achieve long lasting results.

She understands that most patients who suffer from back pain, neck pain or other musculoskeletal complaints do so for simple reasons. She is always keen to figure out the cause of the problem, rather than just treat the symptoms.

“A Chiropractor shouldn’t just alleviate pain. They should also show patients how to take control of their conditions, by giving them the techniques to help themselves”.

Marianne really enjoys learning and improving her skills. Outside the clinics she loves swimming, cycling, running, yoga and music and keeps busy looking after her children. As well as a chiropractor Marianne has completed courses in:

  • Paediatrics

  • Extremity Adjusting

  • Dry Needling

  • Rehabilitation

  • Taping

  • Myofascial Release

  • Orthotic Prescription

  • Muscle Testing
