Mark Roughley, BSc (Hons)
Mark qualified as an engineer in 2001 after which he divided his time between working and travelling. He decided to follow his passion for health and wellbeing and so retrained as an osteopath qualifying in 2009. Since qualifying he has worked in clinics in London and Singapore. Mark's interest in osteopathy extends beyond humans to include horses and dogs who also require expert help when in pain or under performing. He enjoys spending time with his young family and keeping fit.
Jacky Clarke, BTAA EMRT
Jacky is our Bowen Therapist. She has been involved with horses, dogs and farm animals since childhood and has worked with horses and dogs in a professional capacity for many years. When she was advised to have surgery for debilitating back pain, a friend suggested she visit a Bowen practitioner first.
The therapy was so successful that she cancelled the operation and spent three years training in the Bowen Technique. She left her career as a Police Dog Handler and started her own practice in 2004. She has also trained with one of the worlds leading Equine Behaviour Experts, Dr Debbie Marsden, and qualified as an Equine Behaviour Consultant. You can find out more about the Bowen Technique elsewhere on our website or on Jacky's own website at www.bowenjc.co.uk.
