The gentle corrective manipulation of the bones of the head, spinal column, pelvis and limbs, by the McTimoney-Corley Skeletal Therapist, is believed to enhance the natural self-healing capabilities of the body.
We are called McTimoney-Corley Skeletal Therapists because, although most patients visit us with a back problem, on most occasions the therapist will look at other parts of the body as well – hence our motto ‘The Whole Body Whole’. For example, if a patient has a knee problem, the therapist will still look at the spine and pelvis too.
Re-alignment may be achieved with adjustments that encourage soft tissue release. Many patients believe that McTimoney-Corley Therapy, in its gentle approach, has been more suited to their bodies.
Testimonials have shown that McTimoney-Corley Skeletal Therapy does not just relieve pain, but sometimes removes the cause of other dis-ease. No cell or organ of the body can function properly without its correct supply of nerve impulses.
Remedial exercises will be recommended and advice will always be given to help avoid a recurrence of the problem.
McTimoney-Corley Skeletal Therapy can also be used as a preventative therapy. The frequency of treatments depends on the person’s occupation and life-style.
This therapy has also been successfully adapted to treat most animals, especially horses and dogs.
