Our Chiropractors


All our Chiropractors are McTimoney trained, offering you a low force adjustment technique suitable for all ages. McTimoney Chiropractors check and subtlely adjust bones of the skull, thorax, spine, pelvis and limbs, relieving tensions throughout the entire structure. It is the gentleness of the technique and the treatment of the whole body that distinguishes the McTimoney technique from other manipulative methods.
