Meet the Chiropractic Clinic Team
Serving Marlow & Twyford
Debbie Rogers: Osteopath
Debbie Rogers graduated from The British School of Osteopathy in 1989. After practising in local clinics, Debbie established Marlow Osteopathic Clinic which moved to The Doctors House in 1993. With her associate Caroline, they built a strong relationship over 21 years with local GPs. Debbie bought Wantage Osteopathic Clinic in 1992 which she developed into a large multi-disciplinary clinic and sold in 1997.
Experience in treating sports injuries at Wantage RUFC and then Marlow RUFC from 1993 to 1999 culminated in working for Scottish Exiles RUFC and finally England Rugby Union. She was osteopath to The British Modern Pentathlon team for the World Championships in Switzerland in 1995. Debbie recently incorporated her clinic into The Spinal Health Clinic and is using her traditional holistic, osteopathic skills treating all ages of the local community and developing the clinic, with the rest of the team, into the foremost musculoskeletal clinic in Marlow.
Caroline Baker: Osteopath
Caroline Baker qualified from The British School of Osteopathy in London in 1990. She worked in clinics in London for two years until taking a break to become a ski guide in the Alps.
On returning, Caroline joined Debbie as an associate osteopath in Marlow Osteopathic Clinic, where they have worked together and become the largest osteopathic practice in Marlow. In 1997 Caroline became osteopathic manager at The Maple Clinic in Bracknell whilst also working within the Acute Back Pain team at King Edward VII Hospital in Windsor. This, together with her time working in Marlow, has given Caroline years of experience as a respected osteopath referring to medical professionals.
Caroline has an interest in sports injuries and has also looked after students from the Ballet Rambert. Caroline has a gentle and caring approach which makes her particularly successful when treating the elderly and pre- and post-natal women.
Hazel Hanley: Osteopath
Hazel embarked upon her career as an osteopath later in life, having previously held roles in retail management and supply chain management in the wines & spirits industry. Extensive manual handling resulted in back pain and to Hazel first becoming acquainted with osteopathy. She was so impressed with the transformation to her health that she decided to train to become an osteopath herself.
For the next six years, during the evenings and weekends, Hazel managed to squeeze in a Master’s degree in Osteopathy, which included more than 1000 hours of ‘hands on’ clinical experience, over and above the academic requirements.
Hazel joined the team at Marlow Osteopathic Clinic in May 2015; her former work experience gives her first-hand experience of the stresses and strains that both heavy manual handling and sedentary desk based roles can lead to, and she is ideally placed to help people that are affected by work related problems. Hazel has a real passion for treating both expectant mothers and post-natal women and has undertaken several courses since qualifying to study peri-natal care. In addition she has also undertaken sports massage qualifications, so her treatment approach tends to incorporate plenty of massage: she is available for sports massage sessions as well as osteopathic care.
When not at the clinic or being bossed around by her 3 year old son Archie, Hazel enjoys swimming and bootcamp, and occasionally still manages a bit of nostalgic wine chat.
