McTimoney Therapy

During the winter of 2012/13, my Connermara stallion Harry was not 100% level behind.  This is when I heard about Mary from a friend.

I live in the Isle of Man so this causes a logistical issue. However Mary was up for the travel, so came to the Isle of Man in April 2013. Since Mary has treated him and straightened his pelvis, we have never looked back. I have a small Conny herd so every time we have an injury I send over a plane ticket.

Mary now comes at least twice a year to maintain the ponies.

Nerves carry messages from the brain to specific areas of the body. They branch out from either side the spinal cord, which passes down through a central canal in the spinal bones, between each of the spinal bones. If the bones are not balanced the nerve will be impeded so its message will be ‘garbled’ causing discomfort/pain.

McTimoney treatment aims to realign the bones so the nerves can carry accurate messages then the body can heal itself.


Most common areas of treatment

  1. Back pain
  2. Nagging neck pain
  3. Effects of previous injuries
  4. Sports injuries

McTimoney treatment assesses the whole skeletal system. It aims to address the cause, not the symptoms of the problem. The technique is gentle and suitable for anyone from babies to the frail and elderly. Adjustments are made using only the hands.
The human approach was modified by McTimoney after he successfully treated a horse, so that it could be used on animals. Again the treatment aims to realign and balance the animal’s musculoskeletal system restoring health, movement, soundness and putting an edge on performance. This is done with the prior consent of the animal’s veterinary surgeon.


“Mary Wilkinson has been treating my back problems for a considerable time.    Her skill and patience have made the whole experience not only worthwhile with the results giving me proper mobility, but the McTimoney  chiropractic  technique is gentle.  I wholeheartedly recommend her to those seeking help and relief for back pain.

Mary is also very skilful in treating animals large and small.  My dogs have  been successfully helped, and others have found success with their dogs,  sheep and horses."
