Chiropractic at Tillow Barn
deceptively gentle, powerfully effective
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.
We aim to change the way you feel and function within three to four sessions, so you can be sure you won't be tied into long treatment plans. You'll visit us generally no more frequently than once a week and once you feel you've achieved what you want to achieve, you can be assured that it will be you who decides when and if you want to return for any further treatment.
Some of the conditions we can help:

*Covid surcharge of £5 per session:
Please note that during the current Covid crisis, we have had to introduce a surcharge of £5 per treatment to cover the additional costs we're currently incurring. These costs are created by the necessity for Chiropractors to wear full PPE in order to be allowed to continue treating, along with the extra time we've had to build into our appointments in order to disinfect the clinic between patients.
We hope you'll understand and thank you for your support in continuing to choose us for your chiropractic care. We will of course continue to do our utmost to keep you safe while you're here.
What to expect: Each chiropractic treatment session lasts around 30mins. Most of our patients need somewhere between two and six sessions to resolve a problem, with the average number of visits being three or four.
Private Medical Insurance
We are not able to administer claims through private medical insurance - the fees must be paid at the time of the consultation. We can provide a receipt for your payment, which you may be able to use to make a claim through your insurance policy as long as you are covered (please check with your health insurance provider).
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.

"Abi is attentive and reassuring and makes constructive suggestions as to how to help oneself. It can be months and months between my visits but she always remembers our previous conversations! An all round excellent practitioner."
Jean S, Dorking
"Abi's treatments have pretty much eliminated my daughters intake of painkillers for headaches due to studying and exam stress which has been a lifesaver through the revision period! Her approach is gentle, holistic and she is very knowledgeable. Highly recommend"
Danielle, Dorking (Google review)
"Had a slight lower back pain that would come on after standing for long periods. Was diagnosed quickly and fixed within 2 sessions. I've not had any pain since I went in a month or so ago so excellent."
Joe, Dorking (Google review)
"Abi managed to, very gently, transform me from someone in extreme acute lower back pain to someone who could get into a car without yelping in pain! who could actually put their *own* socks on and who could actually function! I’m very grateful! Both Anne & Abi are great. I highly recommend them. The clinic is a wonderful oasis of calm."
Jos, Crawley (Google review)
"Lower back pain and unable to walk very well I booked an appointment with Abi McGuinness. When I walked out of my session it felt like I had grown a completely new leg ! .......... realigned and walking with symmetry again, thanks Abi!
Anthony, Reigate (Google review)
"I visited Tillow due to back and neck pains. I saw Abi Mcguiness who helped me with chiropractic, acupuncture and massage. This treatment worked very well and I am pleased I visited. Abi is friendly and professional as well as effective. The place is small and welcoming although in the middle of nowhere (which could be thought of as a positive). I would recommend treatment here. A normal 45 minute session (after the first initial consultation) is £45. There is plenty of parking outside."
Andrew, Brockham (Google review)
"I have found the whole experience with Tillow Barn Health and Wellbeing is very welcoming and very professional. Would certainly recommend to anyone with back or joint pain. "
Lee Maidens, Guildford
"Being treated at Tillow Barn has changed my life for the better in so many ways. I was suffering from lower back pain and general misery and my first consultation/treatment was enlightening and powerful. She gave me amazing advice and exercises to do at home and I am now symptom free and SO happy. I am proud to tell her how well I am doing when I visit for my 'maintenance treatments' and also to receive her warm praise! Thanks for everything."
"The chiropractor at Tillow Barn has been sorting out my back for the past ten years or so, whenever I've done something daft such as over-zealous gardening or over-enthusiastic exercising. The first time I met her I could scarcely walk, the pain in my back was excruciating. I hobbled into her clinic and at the end of the session, I skipped out, free of pain. To me it was little short of a miracle. Since then she has come to my rescue on many occasions. I don't know how she does it, but with a gentle tweak here, a nudge there ( so it seems to me) some soothing massage and sometimes some acupuncture, the pain and aching has melted away. In addition to this, she's a very easy person to talk to and has endless patience."
Elinor Bailey, Dorking
"I have had back problems over approx. 10 years and been to a number of Chiropractors over time. I would just like to say you are the best Chiropractor I have ever been to. From the first visit you were extremely professional, asked me a detailed history, explaining every thing as you went and putting me at ease all the time. I was amazed at your detailed, professional examination. You explained what you were doing and why you were doing it in a relaxed, friendly manner. You are a credit to your profession and I will be recommending you to anyone who I hear requires a Chiropractor. Thank you once again for all your help and assistance."
"I would like to say how impressed I was. The treatment I received was extremely effective for my condition and my symptoms are disappearing. Abi’s diagnosis was extremely accurate and she explained every step of her treatment in a very clear way. Her post session advice was also very easy to follow and integrate with my daily routine. "
N Stevens, Redhill
"Went to Anne after spending a ton of money on various osteopaths trying to solve a long term back problem. Within a couple of weeks and just a few sessions Anne sorted it. Now I go once every 6 months maybe when it goes again - and a 20 minute session means I can play tennis, golf, footy with my boys etc. Priceless.
Neil Bradshaw, Reigate
"I have been a patient at the Yorke Clinic (now Tillow Barn) for the last nine months. Having Hypermobility Syndrome means my joints do not stay in place as they should. This makes many aspects of daily life very difficult. The treatment I have had at the clinic has made such a difference to my ability to do everyday tasks. Anne is so kind, supportive and positive as well as knowledgeable and professional. I will never be able to thank her enough!"
