McTimoney Chiropractor (MChiro)
Swedish and Holistic Massage Therapy (Dip)
Excellent service from Katie. Easy to book and convenient appointments. Very friendly atmosphere and fantastic treatments. Always come away feeling better and more mobile. Highly recommended!
First class service. Needed attention after falling off my bike. Katie was amazing in her diagnosis and treatment. Brilliant local company. Highly recommended.
Katie qualified as a massage therapist in 2016, both Swedish holistic and deep tissue. She then practiced this alongside working and studying for her master’s in chiropractic which she achieved in 2021 from McTimoney College of Chiropractic.
McTimoney practice is quite distinctive from mainstream chiropractic, and the techniques are more in line with physiotherapy. The main tool is a specific type of adjustment that doesn’t cause the audible popping or cracking sound. Quick, gentle adjustments are used to bring your body back into balance, reducing restrictions, relieving pain, and promoting natural healing, making it a comfortable technique to receive. The McTimoney technique is a gentle and effective manipulative technique that treats the whole body to maintain and correct the alignment of the spine and allow the nervous system to function at its optimum potential. Katie also uses soft tissue massaging and stretching techniques to relieve the tension within tight muscles. Katie will produce a working diagnosis and will explain any proposed treatments fully.
Difference between Chiro and McTimoney Chiro
More time for appointment - never less than 15 minutes, usually 30 minutes (after the initial assessment which is always one hour)
You will be always be seen in a private treatment room
You will not be pressured to sign up for multiple appointments
You will not be persuaded that this is something you must do this for the rest of your life for maintenance purposes
I often give clients an exercise regime to do at home, so you are involved in and responsible for your own recovery
The treatment will genuinely be tailored to the individual’s needs – not same three adjustments for everyone
I do not necessarily do the loud audible clicks that mainstream chiro often rely on. I will always consult with you if I feel this would be beneficial
I have background and training in deep tissue massage
I am constantly seeking to expand my skills and offer an increasingly broad range of disciplines
