Become a Chiropractor

The McTimoney approach to chiropractic is currently only taught at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic based in Abingdon.

The College began as the Oxfordshire School of Chiropractic, founded by John McTimoney in 1972. By training a small number of pupils, he aimed to increase the availability of the treatment he had developed and to ensure that his techniques would not be lost.

In 1982, after John McTimoney’s death, the school was taken over by three of his original pupils. They developed a course covering basic sciences and philosophy as well as the important skill of adjusting bone alignment with extreme accuracy and speed.

The demand for training in the McTimoney approach to chiropractic continues to increase and from October 2012, the Integrated Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) programme has been validated by BPP University as an Integrated Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) degree.  Postgraduate courses are also available for those wishing to specialise further.
