McTimoney is a relatively gentle form of chiropractic using fast light movements to adjust the bones of the body. Chiropractors believe that aligning the skeleton can help the nervous system to function more efficiently helping to relieve pain and discomfort thereby improving mobility.
The McTimoney method is a whole body treatment which means that we assess the whole body and mobilize and adjust where needed. Fast, light adjustments are made to the wing of the vertebrae (transverse process) which some patients describe as feeling like ‘flicks’. This treatment does not generally produce cavitations, which is the ‘click’ or ‘pop’ that you may experience with some techniques. Most patients seem to enjoy treatment and some have been known to snooze as they become so relaxed! (That even includes one patient who arrived at the clinic in such acute pain he was hardly able to sit down!).
A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems.
