Greg MacNeillie MChiro MMCA
Greg MacNeillie is a recent graduate of the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Oxfordshire. He says: “I was hooked from the time that I had my first McTimoney treatment. I have always had chiropractic in the past and it has always worked well for me, but McTimoney really felt different. I had been struggling with lower back problems for months and thought I would give McTimoney a go. My chiropractor picked up some misalignments from an old neck injury that she felt where having an effect on my whole spine and lower back, and even my feet were suffering! I can remember the treatment feeling so light and gentle and relaxing and afterwards feeling completely energised. Over the next few weeks’ things improved gradually and six months later I ran the Berlin marathon and shortly after that had enrolled at McTimoney College!”
Greg has been working in health since completing a degree in Social Science in South Africa in 1995. “I have always been passionate about people, and helping them realise their potential. It is one of the most rewarding jobs you can do, which is why I love McTimoney. We believe that overall health and wellbeing play such an important role in how your body responds to the impacts that life places on it. One of my personal philosophies is that life is all about balance. Emotional, physical and mental wellbeing are equally important and McTimoney recognises the importance of dealing with all aspects of health. We work really well with other healthcare professionals and will refer to other therapies too. So many of my patients have benefitted from yoga, massage, acupuncture, coaching and counselling, and I’m always telling my patients to keep moving and stretching!! Exercise and a balanced diet are so important in improving the wonderful ability your body has to heal and repair itself.”
Chiropractic is a regulated profession and Greg is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and is a member of the McTimoney Chiropractic Association. Greg holds an Integrated Masters in Chiropractic.

I graduated from the Military Medical Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have been treating patients with a variety of conditions for over 25 years. The story of my involvement in homeopathy is usual for medical doctors. I am a converted sceptic after receiving successful treatment of my long lasting suffering using homeopathy. Never before, had I experienced such an astonishingly rapid effect of any medicine.
After that I started a regular study of homeopathy and eventually graduated from the Centre for Homeopathic Education, London. My medical background and experience which is relevant and substantial helps in understanding and maintaining of integrated approache to my client’s problems.
My area of interest currently is homeopathic approach to fundamentally male disorders such as benign prostate hyperplasia (benign enlargement of the prostate), male menopause or common complaints such as insomnia, lumbago (lower back pain), migraine, alcoholic liver disease, hypertension (high blood pressure) etc.
