Chiropractic at Tillow Barn
deceptively gentle, powerfully effective
Please note that we have suspended bookings for the Chiropractic clinic for the time being as our Chiropractor is currently self-isolating. We will update this message as things change.
At Tillow Barn we specialise in a low force chiropractic technique known as the McTimoney Method. Not only will its gentle approach relieve your symptoms, but our thorough assessment process will find the underlying cause of your symptoms, so that we can address that too. That way you'll not only feel better, but get well and stay well.
Some of the conditions we can help are:

About McTimoney Chiropractic
McTimoney Chiropractic is a low force chiropractic technique, which uses gentle, fast, light adjustments to realign the bones and joints of the body, with particular emphasis on the joints of the spine and pelvis.
McTimoney is a precise and gentle treatment. No large twisting manoeuvres are used and the technique avoids any sharp turning of the neck. Here at Tillow Barn Health & Wellbeing, we often incorporate soft tissue techniques and medical acupuncture into our chiropractic treatment sessions. Chiropractic has been proven in clinical trials to be effective in relieving low back pain, and can also relieve the pain of upper back and neck problems, as well as many other conditions.
Patients at this clinic need on average around three or four sessions to resolve their problem. It is unusual for problems to take any more than six sessions, and some take only one or two. This is because we spend at least half an hour with you at each session. Your chiropractor will discuss how many sessions he or she thinks you might need before you commence treatment, but please feel free to ask us what you can expect when you call us.
