Meet the Team
Jonathan Clarke - Doctor of Chiropractic
Doctor of Chiropractic Jon, originally from Saltash, graduated as ‘Student of the Year’ from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth following 4 years of training and is now In his 15th year of Practice.
He also recently sat on the Executive Board for one of the leading Chiropractic Associations in the UK, the United Chiropractic Association.
Prior to his Chiropractic degree, Jon studied Biomedical Sciences in Bristol, but was pleased to be able to return to his home town of Saltash to practice.
Jon has worked, in the past, with under privileged children and relishes the opportunity to work with a number of the charities in the local area over the coming years.
Although Chiropractic is an important part of Jon’s life, you will also find him ‘treading the boards’ in both musicals and panto’s performing with the Wranglers Theatre Company. As a keen musician, singer and pianist, don’t expect a shy, retiring individual.
Marlaine - Practice Manager
Marlaine is Jon’s mum and has been instrumental in the development of Saltash Chiropractic Clinic since it first opened. Marlaine has a background of nursing and teaching and working as Practice Manager has allowed her to use her experience and well developed skills successfully in the clinic.
As a tireless advocate of chiropractic, Marlaine has benefitted tremendously from regular care, and fully understands the philosophy of chiropractic. She is always pleased to bring this philosophy to all of our patients.
In addition to her role within the practice, Marlaine has many interests which include enjoying family time as a wife, mother and grandma and spending time with her friends. She is also a member of the Saltash Flower Club, is current President of the Trematon Women’s Institute and keeps organic hens that lay delicious eggs and enjoys growing delicious organic vegetables for the whole family.
Kaz - Chiropractic Assistant Team Leader

After taking time out to care for her children, she is very inspired to promote the benefit of Chiropractic care to all our patients, and is happy to meet you all. Kaz has also completed training at college in hairdressing and barbering, and enjoys music, theatre, writing and has a great love of animals.
Connor - Sports Therapist & Chiropractic Assistant
Connor studied Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation at the University of Derby, graduating in July 2022 with 2:1 honours.
During his studies, he did work experience as an assistant physiotherapist for Mickleover football club.
Being a massive football fan, he enjoyed this experience enormously was a good fit for the role. However, it also provided him an opportunity to reflect and realise his passion was less to help players improve their sporting performance, and more to have a positive impact on the everyday lives of people struggling with functional movement.
This has led me back home to Cornwall to occupy roles as both a Chiropractic Assistant and Sports Therapist at Saltash Chiropractic Clinic, in the heart of the community he is passionate about helping. “
Ali - Chiropractic Assistant
Ali Frantom is a local girl living and growing up in Saltash with her family, 2 daughters, partner and 2 crazy cockapoos.
She enjoys walking her dogs and spending quality time with family and friends.
She was particularly looking forward to working in Saltash again where she can just walk to work!
