McTimoney Therapy is a form of chiropractic which was introduced in the 1950s by the late John McTimoney, who applied his innovative chiropractic skills to animals.
For over 40 years, McTimoney animal practitioners have been helping animals with this non-invasive technique which involves no tools, drugs or anaesthetic and which most animals readily accept.
The McTimoney technique aims to align and balance the animal's musculoskeletal system. By manipulating any misaligned joints throughout the whole body, with special attention to the spine and pelvis, it helps both to restore and maintain health, soundness and performance. The fast but gentle adjustments are light to receive, so most animals relax during the treatment and respond very positively. McTimoney adjustments can be used alongside massage, mobilisation, myofascial release and stretching as appropriate for the individual animal.
