Our highly experienced chiropractors have been registered with the regulatory body the General Chiropractic Council since its inception in 2003.
Alan's route to becoming a chiropractor has taken a few twists along the way. Having left school to embark on a short-lived football career, other jobs as a fitness instructor and in construction were soon dispatched as he entered study mode. Moving on from completing a business studies course, ultimately to an engineering degree, Alan's experience of working in the manufacturing sector didn't provide that vital spark of satisfaction.
Having experienced McTimoney chiropractic treatment, Alan was very much taken with the simplistic approach and effectiveness of the treatment. Since graduating from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in 2001, he has built up a significant and loyal client base in Glasgow's west end.
Alan's analytical approach is about understanding the nature of the problem and addressing the root cause, whilst educating the patient. Patients treated range from 3 years of age to 93, covering a wide spectrum of complaints, from all manner of day-to-day problems, to professional dance and sports related complaints.
Caroline qualified with a diploma in chiropractic from the Oxford College of Chiropractic in 1999. She began working at this time in an established McTimoney Chiropractic Clinic in Glasgow. Continuing her studies, she qualified a year later from the Oxford Brookes University with a degree in chiropractic. During her years of work in the chiropractic field, Caroline has treated patients from all walks of life from international athletes, to sedentary workers to the infirm.
Professional development is very important to Caroline. Over the years she has trained in various types of muscular release techniques, has trained in the assessment and fitting of orthotics and is also qualified in Cranio-sacral therapy. This gives Caroline a range of therapeutic techniques to choose from to support the chiropractic treatment where necessary depending on the patients needs.
Nathalie's bi-lingual background took her along a linguistic path before she came to chiropractic. She lived for 12 years in Italy where she taught English at the British Council in Naples and Milan, and also French and Spanish. She worked as an interpreter and translator at the G7 summit in Naples in 1994 and edited medical research documents for publishing at the University of Naples between 1994 and 1996.
Having always suffered with back pain and sciatica due to a long history of practicing and teaching martial arts, Nathalie eventually decided to visit a chiropractor. Within one session she was pain free and became inspired to change career path. She graduated at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in 2006 and began working at a McTimoney clinic in Glasgow. Nathalie now has an established clinic of her own in Prestwick, and has worked at balance since January 2011.
In addition to McTimoney chiropractic, Nathalie uses Craniosacral therapy techniques and has an interest in sports chiropractic. She is currently studying homeopathy.
Morna's decision to become a chiropractor happened after suffering 10 years of back pain following a skiing accident for which there appeared to be no cure, despite the efforts of physios and GP's. That is, until she met a chiropractor! Within a couple of months, Morna was pain free. She decided then that she would love to help others as she had been helped.
Morna discovered the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon and started on the 5 year Masters programme in January, 2007, graduating with a first class Masters degree in December, 2011. Now that she is working as a chiropractor, she is thoroughly satisfied with life, and feels that her 10 year history of back pain, pain killers, and prescribed 'rest' were not a waste after all, but rather a route to a new career and a better understanding of the pain and frustrations of others.
