I specialise in a specific chiropractic technique that is relaxing and comfortable for the patient to receive, and considers the body as a whole in order to provide maximum comfort and relief.
The McTimoney Technique
This gentle chiropractic method is suitable for patients of all ages.
The technique is hands-on in its approach and involves assessing the whole body, then using very light and precise manipulation to provide a safe and natural solution for pain, discomfort or restrictions to movement.
As a trained and experienced chiropractor using the McTimoney method, I have developed a sensitive set of skills to help my patients and I also aim to help you in preventing problems in the future.
The Bowen Technique also uses gentle pressure that patients find relaxing and comfortable to receive.
The Bowen Technique concentrates on the muscles and soft tissue to help stimulate repair and promote movement.
This method focuses on treating precise points to encourage the body’s own natural healing and pain relief.
Kinesiology tape can be used to help patients recover from musculoskeletal problems or injury. The Kinesio Taping® Method is a therapeutic taping technique which alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin increasing interstitial space and allowing for decreased inflammation in affected areas. Based upon research and years of clinical use, The Kinesio® Taping Method specifically applies Kinesio tape based on evaluation and assessment to dictate a specific application.
Here at Dartington Chiropractic Clinic, I also specialise in providing a non-surgical, drug free treatment for animals who are suffering from pain or discomfort, or performance issues.
My chiropractic techniques are widely used on horses and dogs but can also be effective for farm animals and smaller animals such as cats or rabbits.
Small animals can be brought to me at the clinic or I can visit you if this is more suitable.
I always ask you to seek full approval from your vet before proceeding with any treatment on your animal, unless it is a wellness or performance issue where veterinary consent is not required.
Initial consultation and treatment – 60 – 90 minutes
Follow up treatments – 45 minutes
