Marie Hunter is a physiotherapist who has been treating clients in Geneva for the last 16 years. She operates in close coordination with her clients’ doctors and other complementary therapists, nutritionists and physical trainers to achieve meaningful and lasting results. She sees the body as a holistic system, and works in partnership with her clients to help them regain a pain-free and active life. Marie speaks French, English and German.
Marie earned her high school qualifications in Bremen and worked thereafter as part of a voluntary social year in neurological rehabilitation center for children and young people in Friedehorst, and an internship in the local physiotherapy department, for 1.5 years. Subsequently, she completed her degree at the School of Physiotherapy of Ernst August University of Göttingen (Germany) in 2004.
From August 2004 to May 2014 she worked as a physiotherapist in Geneva helping clients to restore their movement and function after injury, illness or disability. At the core of her work is the client’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment. Marie used her knowledge (and her hands!) to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as: musculoskeletal (sports injuries, arthritis, fractures, breaks, back pain, post-accident rehabilitation), Cardiovascular and Respiratory conditions, amongst others.
During this time she has continued her professional development and acquired additional qualifications in:
- Manual Therapy
- Therapy of Temporo Mandibula Disorder
- Triggerpoint therapy
- Visceral therapy
- Cranio-Sacral Therapy
- Manual osteopathic therapy for children and infants
- Reiki 1st and 2nd degree
In January 2014 Marie decided to set up her own physiotherapy practice to be able to continue to develop her philosophy of holistic physiotherapy with an emphasis on manual therapy and osteopathic concepts. She has two daughters aged 8 and 4.
