The McTimoney method is a branch of Chiropractic developed by Chiropractor John McTimoney (1914-1980) more than half a century ago.
It is a holistic approach to Chiropractic care which considers a person's symptoms in the context of their medical history, personal circumstances and lifestyle.
Treatment is characterised by quick, light force adjustments, making it a comfortable, non-invasive treatment to receive. The subtlety of the adjustment demands great sensitivity and mechanical skill, and when practiced by a trained McTimoney Chiropractor, is extremely effective. The gentle nature of this form of Chiropractic treatment makes it particularly suitable for people of any age including babies, pregnent ladies and the elderly.
Clearly the best information you can obtain as to the benefits of McTimoney Chiropractic are the first hand accounts of those who have experienced it for themselves.
We invite you to have a read, below, of what some of our patients have to say about their experiences of McTimoney Chiropractic, so you don't have to just take our word for it!
"Suddenly, out of the blue, early in August 2009 I suffered severe back pain which continued down my right leg. A visit to the GP confirmed that it was sciatica. Due to the severity of the pain he said that it was unlikely that I could stand any form of treatment such as physiotherapy or osteopathy and diagnosed pain killers and rest. I was horrified when he told me that it could be months before I was free of pain. At the time I could hardly move and couldn't get comfortable either sitting in the chair or lying down. My husband was given Alaine's details by someone with a similar problem. We did the usual research on the internet and found that the McTimoney Chiropractic procedure is a very gentle treatment. I decided to give it a try and could feel the improvement within a few days of the first treatment. My regret is that I didn't book an appointment sooner! I have already suggested that some of my friends visit Alaine and I know that one of them at least has already had great benefit after suffering with back pain for years."
