Our treatment is influenced by a variety of techniques depending upon the patient's symptoms and overall health
The McTimoney approach to chiropractic 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 chiropractic care.
The gentle nature of chiropractic the McTimoney way makes it suitable for people throughout their lifetime from babyhood to those in later life.
Many graduates of the McTimoney College go on to develop special interests and attend further postgraduate training, so by using the search facility on this site, you can find a chiropractor near you who focuses on pregnancy, paediatric, sports or later life chiropractic care.
The NIP technique came about during the 1990’s. It is the brainchild of Dr Neil J Davies, the author of the popular text “Chiropractic Pediatrics A Clinical Handbook” published by Churchill Livingstone. During this time Dr Davies was striving to evolve a technique approach to be used with babies that was absolutely precise neurologically, but extremely gentle in its application.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a diagnostic and treatment system used by some chiropractors to treat many types of back pain, neck pain, and headaches (both chronic and migraine).
The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.
Torque Release (TRT)
Torque Release Technique is based on gentle touch and light thrusting by hand or instrument. This low-force adjusting method allows the nervous system to better integrate and understand the new corrective information, and to process it throughout the spinal cord and brain.
Torque release teaches and empowers your body to make more corrections and healing with ongoing care. Because analysis and correction are not limited to just the area of pain and symptom, integration tends to be more complete, and healing is experienced in deeper areas of the body, mind, and emotions.
Koren Specific (KST)
KST is a healing protocol used to locate and correct/release areas of blockage, distortion, subluxation, interference, stagnation and other stresses in the body and body/mind that are often missed by most healthcare professionals.
KST is used to improve body function, promote natural healing, release physical and emotional stresses and works well with any healing art.
KST may be used to locate and address areas that need attention such as meridians, acupuncture points, trigger points, energy "cysts", emotional issues, allergies, phobias, addictions, bad habits, toxicity, structural imbalances, visceral stresses, disc problems and much more. Such issues can often be corrected easily and quickly to improve body function.
Applied kinesiology is presented as a system that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health by using a method referred to as muscle response testing or manual muscle testing (MMT) alongside conventional diagnostic methods. The essential premise of applied kinesiology, is that every organ dysfunction is accompanied by a weakness in a specific corresponding muscle in what is termed the "viscerosomatic relationship." Treatment modalities relied upon by AK practitioners include joint manipulation and mobilization, myofascial, cranial and meridian therapies, clinical nutrition, and dietary counseling.
