Massage Therapy
There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments. Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.

Massage therapy benefits people of all ages.  While it benefits the injured, the ill and the stressed, the strength of massage therapy in preventing illness and conditions before they develop cannot be overlooked. 

Therapeutic massage is an important part of your health maintenance plan; there are many health benefits to receiving regular massage treatments. These include reducing or eliminating pain, reducing tension within the muscles, improving joint mobility, improving circulation, improving immune system function, increasing lymphatic drainage, reducing depression and anxiety and increasing overall body awareness.

Shelley Morgan

Shelley qualified with a Masters degree (MChiro) from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic. She is also ITEC accredited with a Level 3 diploma in massage.

I believe working in a partnership with my patients is of upmost importance in their road to recovery. Empowering patients with the knowledge to understand their condition whilst working alongside them, providing McTimoney treatment is key in allowing the body to work at is optimum level as soon as we can.

‘Being a chiropractor is truly brilliant and being part of a patient’s road to recovery is so rewarding.’

McTimoney Chiropractic
The McTimoney method of chiropractic was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago. It is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it especially suitable for people of all ages.

It is a straight forward method of adjusting the bones of your body to improve the alignment of your skeleton and through this process help the nervous system to work more efficiently. The purpose of chiropractic care is to realign and rebalance your body to relieve pain and discomfort and increase mobility.
Misalignment of the joints can occur for many reasons; some of the most common are incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress and poor posture. This can lead to pain, numbness, pins and needles or restricted mobility.
