What happens during a session?

Most sessions include the McTimoney technique and craniosacral therapy. The addition of core postural alignment (spinal touch) is another option, as is any individual technique or combination of techniques. Each session is tailored to your needs at the time.

Your first visit

The first consultation takes an hour, and includes a full case history, relevant tests, and an explanation of the treatment. You would usually receive your first treatment on this visit, and a follow up treatment one or two weeks later. Visits become less frequent as your symptoms improve. You would be referred for an X-ray only if it were essential for the safety of your treatment.

After a treatment your body may feel different or tired while it takes its own time to readjust. Normal gentle activities are fine. Repetitive or strenuous exercise should be avoided for a couple of days. If treatment was not appropriate at the first or any subsequent visit you would be recommended to visit your GP or another professional.

An annual treatment is recommended for everybody, to help maintain good health.

McTimoney Technique


This is characterised by swift, light adjustments, using only the hands. Most adjustments are within the body’s normal range of movement, and treatment is pleasant to receive.


Craniosacral Therapy


This is a subtle way of working not only on the cranium (skull), and sacrum (base of the spine), but also with any area of the body holding physical or emotional stress, allowing the body to heal and to feel more relaxed.


Core Postural Alignment


Core Postural Alignment (Spinal Touch) is a philosophy and practice which seeks to help keep the bones of the skull, spine and pelvis in their proper relationship with each other, in order to allow the body to express its maximum potential.


Free spine check


A free spine check can be a good way to find out about what I do. I will ask basic details about your general health, any specific pains, and what you would like to get out of the treatment.
