Marta studied in both Dublin and Manchester and started her professional Physiotherapy career within the NHS in Manchester, completing her NHS rotations before moving into the private sector where she worked within a sports musculoskeletal clinic treating an array of injuries and conditions. She combined her hospital working with treating and working with semi- professional rugby teams over the course of a few years. It is within the private sector she saw a great need for women’s health post- natal care and trained in post-natal Pilates. Marta moved to London and continued to progress as a sports and rehab physio for women in London working in private clinics in Mayfair and Kensington. The number of patients that continued to come into the clinic presenting with pelvic pain, pelvic dysfunction and associated back pain was increasing. She knew that the muscles where all connected but needed more training in the pelvic health world to connect and treat the two but also to provide the right answers to her patients. This is when Marta decided to move to full time to pelvic health and team up with Maria Elliott – a pelvic health specialist in pelvic pain in London.
Over the course of the last few years Marta has undertaken a wealth of knowledge having been trained by some of the leading women’s health physios in the country such as Maria Elliott and Kate Walsh, alongside shadowing Holly Herman.

She is a strong believer in the benefits of holistic management and believes it helps to treat the pelvis as a biopsychosocial model.
Marta uses her musculoskeletal background to assess the body both externally and internally for all pelvic health patients to help analyse the bigger picture which can also help ante and post-natal women for specific pregnancy-related musculoskeletal pain conditions.
