“I originally sought Gemma’s help because I’d over trained on the tarmac in the run up to the Bristol 1/2 and my lower lumbar spine wasn’t happy. Disc compression, plus related hip, knee and neck problems were also having a very detrimental effect on my regular yoga practice. In all, I was feeling every second of my 44.5 years!
Within a few sessions Gemma has realigned my pelvis, opened out my hips and shifted my lower spine for the better. My yoga practice has improved considerably after just four treatments. I can now do poses I’ve been trying to do for the past four years in full expression. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and already have done to several of my friends. She’s bloomin’ brilliant!”
“ Most Chiropractors can get you out of pain. A few can identify the true cause or causes of that pain . Gemma goes further and gives you the knowledge to work on issues long term and changes small things which have disproportionate positive effects. Longer term , with regular check ups, small issues do not become larger painful ones “
I first visited Gemma 4 or 5 years ago after my daughter starting practising McTimoney on animals. How I wish I had not discovered this form of treatment 25 years ago.
I have been in Construction Management all my life (55 years) and suffered a bad back and locking neck for a very long time now. I am a very keen DIY person and sports person who restricts himself to golf these days.
Not wishing to tempt fate, my back is 100% better and my neck is better than that. I used to nurse the pain but I now have the confidence to exercise,stretch, apply cold etc etc to keep things on the move. Basically I do what Gemma tells me to – AND IT WORKS!
I visit every 2 or 3 months for an MOT check and that keeps things (the spine) in the right place.
I am not a great recommender of treatments as what works for me may not work for you. All I can say is give it a try – I wish I had long, long ago.
I suffered with a ‘bad back’ for years and previously tried regular massage treatments, which proved too painful at the time. It was actually through having my horse treated that I discovered McTimoney and felt that it was something I could try as the treatment is so light and gentle. Gemma was recommended to me and I’m so glad I got in touch as after my first McTimoney treatment I felt so much better both physically and mentally as it was such a relief not to be in constant discomfort. I have found Gemma to be very professional and thorough over the four years she’s been treating me and I really wouldn’t consider using anyone else.
I’m a McTimoney Practitioner for horses and dogs and refer my clients who I feel can benefit from a treatment from Gemma. I have to say all of them have benefitted from it and have highly rated Gemma. This has now dramatically helped them when it comes to physical activities such as horse riding and dog walking. I believe they now see Gemma on a regular basis to keep everything in check, which makes my life easier when it comes to treating horses who now have symmetrical riders.
I am 74 years of age and have conditions that were severely affecting my mobility. I used a walking stick to support me as I was weakened by very stiff joints and muscles. McTimoney Chiropractic treatment with Gemma Graham has helped my whole body, released tension in all my muscles which in turn has helped my joints and improve my mobility. I no longer use my walking stick. The gentle exercises Gemma gave me have also increased my core strength. I am enjoying my life and activities, sleep well now and have seriously reduced my pain medication. Gemma’s professional caring personality also encourages personal growth and determination.
