She also works in the Botox treatment of movement disorders, including blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, cervical dystonia, writer's cramp, facial palsy, foot dystonia and musician's cramp.
As well as movement disorders, Dr Marion uses Botox treatments for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), facial sweating, palmar-plantar hyperhidrosis and axillae hyperhidrosis.
Dr Marion is responsible for a large Botulinum toxin (Botox) service covering many treatments in neurology. She undertook her neurological training in Paris as an interne des hopitaux de Paris and worked as a chef de clinique.
After her research fellowship with Professor David Marsden in London from 1984 to 1986, she introduced the Botox treatment to France. Since that time, she has trained many doctors in France and the UK and has also organised European workshops for the use of Botox.
She has also developed an interest in continuous dopaminergic stimulation with dopa infusion, apomorphine infusion and more recently duodopa infusion in advanced Parkinson's disease.
