McTimoney Musculo-Skeletal Therapy

What is McTimoney, and How Does it Work?

McTimoney is a straight forward method of adjusting the bones of your body to improve the alignment of your skeleton, and through this process help the nervous system to work more efficiently. The purpose of this care is to realign and rebalance your body to relieve pain and discomfort, and increase mobility.

A misalignment of the joints can occur for many reasons; some of the most common are incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress, and poor posture, often at work. This can lead to pain, numbness, pins and needles, or restricted mobility.

What conditions can benefit from treatment?

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Pain, discomfort and stiffness in joints
  • Migraine
  • Muscular aches
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritic pain

The McTimoney Method

The McTimoney method was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago and is taught only at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon, near Oxford. It is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to care. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it especially suitable for people of all ages.
