Core Postural Alignment

Core Postural Alignment (CPA) is a simple yet powerful technique to help the body restore its normal position in relation to the body’s centre of gravity.
Prior to each CPA session, measurements are taken at the plumb line to establish the degree of postural distortion.
A contact point on the pelvis and near to the centre of gravity is held while a unique muscle relaxation technique is used on the main postural muscles.

I was recommended the complete sleeprrr pillow by my Chiropractor, Alaine. I was suffering with a bad neck and found other pillows uncomfortable. I’ve been using this for 3 years now and can’t recommend it enough. I’ve not suffered with neck ache since combining this pillow with Chiropractic testaments. It’s so comfortable and adjustable. Well worth the money!

I was recommended a Complete Sleeprrr pillow for a neck and shoulder injury by my Chiropractor Alaine. I’d already got a special memory foam pillow (that was much cheaper) I had to think twice about the cost of the pillow at £65, it was the most expensive pillow I’d ever had. But, wow along with the treatment, the agony I had been in for 5 years went. I have just bought a second one after 6 years…it’s fully adjustable by pulling out foam strips and how you adjust the positioning of it. It is the best £65 I have ever spent. Highly Recommend. Now my husband has one and it helps with his snoring and sleep apnea.

Thank you so much for restoring me back to health. It feels so good to be back to normal and free of pain, so a thousand thanks!

I recently contacted Karen as I had a debilitating phobia of Spiders which was taking over my entire life. I had tried everything to help with my phobia but nothing was working. I looked into hypnotherapy as it was pretty much the only option that I hadn’t tried. Although I was very sceptical at first, I was at the point in my life where I was willing to try anything. After only 3 sessions with Karen I have noticed a huge difference in the way I deal with spiders and my phobia! Instead of crying and freezing on the spot for hours on end, I am now able to deal with a spider in a much calmer fashion. I can’t explain how it works as everyone is different but one thing is for certain, I can’t thank Karen enough for helping me, she has truly changed my life!

The sessions with Karen were for a specific fear which had started to hinder my life somewhat. Karen was able to help me in just a few sessions. Her approach is very gentle and effective. With Karen’s help, I have overcome my fear which has given me a new lease of life.

I saw Karen a few weeks ago now after deciding that a lifetime of drinking and smoking too much had to be addressed.
We tackled the drinking first. A half hour chat and two hour sessions later and I’ve not touched a drop of the hard stuff for almost 3 weeks. Anyone who knows me will agree that it’s a minor miracle!!!! I feel so much better in myself and I’m loving the sober feeling.
Seriously, I know it sounds corny but if I can stop drinking and smoking anything is possible. Thanks Karen for the help and support and I would recommend your services to anyone who needs some assistance with their issues.

I have received treatment from Alaine for neck pain. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that her form of treatment was very gentle and relaxing with no pain. I found Alaine to be extremely professional and the course of treatment that I had was very successful. I have no hesitation in recommending Alaine’s services.

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.

I really cannot thank Alaine Skerrett enough for the life changing treatments I have received from her recently.

I went for my first treatment with her a few months ago and really cannot believe the difference her style of chiropractic treatments has made to my life.

I fractured my coccyx and pelvis in 1998 which was devastating on so many levels. I have received acupuncture and chiropractic treatments since that time as after 6 months after the injury the NHS could do no more to help me.

These treatments literally got me back on my feet but since 2000 there has been little improvement in my ability to sit on soft chairs without the aid of a sturdy spinal support device – as typically after 5 minutes I would have neck pain and my coccyx and lower back would spasm which was painful and impacted on my mobility too.

After a thorough consultation which brought up lots of past issues emotionally that I’d thought were resolved, Alaine examined me and then stared the very gentle McTimoney Chiropractic session.  It was a very pleasant surprise that it was clearly working not just on a physical level but also on my emotional state and at a profoundly deep and energetic level too. Previous chiropractic treatments have been the typical back cracking types which were maintaining my back health but not improving it. I have had 4 treatments from her since then on a monthly basis and have gone from strength to strength

I travelled to Turkey In August without the spinal support and was able to sit on most chairs without any discomfort. Then in December we flew out to Oman to visit our son and daughter  in law. They were absolutely amazed that I didn’t need the spinal support for any of the flights and that I could sit comfortably in any type of chair relaxed and pain free.

I really cannot recommend Alaine enough and would say that if you too have a chronic injury that is not getting better give her a call, I know that she will be able to help you to improve as she has done me.

My eternal love and gratitude Alaine from  Annie Day Of Heaven Scent Bliss.

In late 2010 I developed severe pain in my back and made several enquiries with colleagues about a possible remedy, all of which recommended King Street Chiropractic.

My wife was also expecting our first child which added to the stresses I was suffering with my pain.

I have seen several Chiropractors and Osteopaths in the past however your patience and professionalism stood out for me personally.

Within a few visits the pain in my back had totally disappeared and I have not had a re-occurnace of the issue since.

I treated Chiropractors with a level of scepticism however my concerns proved unfounded. May I thank you greatly for everything you did for me.

When I first came to see you, I had trouble straightening my back after bending, I had some difficulty getting out of bed, and I regularly got pins and needles in my hands and arms.

After receiving a course of your treatment, I feel supple and I now have no trouble straightening my back, I have no difficulty getting out of bed, and no longer get pins and needles in my hands and arms. I will definitely be using your services again.

Your treatment is very gentle, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Sharon Bladen

I would like to thank you for the remarkable work you have done restoring my back to health and enabling me to continue working.

Whilst the treatment is still ongoing, I feel almost completely cured of what was the most difficult pain I have ever had to deal with. On one occasion that I particularly remember, I walked extremely slowly into your clinic with a limp and severe pain in my hip and walked out quite normally half an hour later.

I have no hesitation in recommending you Alaine and will do so whenever the opportunity arises.
