Sara Hadfield, Chiropractor
I first discovered McTimoney after a serious car accident in 1997 which left me with severe whiplash - constant pain and limited movement of my right arm. I was struggling to lead a normal life despite various treatments. By chance I came across this gentle sounding therapy and with some relief began treatment. After a few sessions I was feeling so much better it seemed like a miracle; my overall health improved at the same time. After years working in the banking and finance sector, I was looking for a change of direction and I began 5 years of training in 2001. I do not miss the stress of life in the fast lane!
I take a holistic approach to your health and well-being. This means that I consider your symptoms in the context of your full medical history, your lifestyle and your personal circumstances. McTimoney Chiropractors use a set of low force techniques to gently realign the spine and skeleton. These subtle but effective chiropractic adjustments can facilitate the relief of pain and discomfort, increase mobility and help towards overall better health. Today I treat a wide range of musculo-skeletal problems and have learned complimentary techniques to give each patient the best chance of feeling better as soon as possible. Regular check ups, or maintenance; treatments help many of my patients to stay active, living the lives they love and feeling well.
In my spare time, I love to ski. I live in the beautiful county of Shropshire and enjoy roaming around the countryside and have been known to do the odd bit of river kayaking.
Ian Staniforth, Massage Therapist
During what seems like a lifetime of fell running, climbing, mountaineering, skiing (BASI instructor), ski touring, cycling, and more recently a bit of sailing and kayaking, I have developed a keen interest in body mechanics and movement. It seemed natural, after providing support to Trinity Clinic for many years, to pursue my own therapy qualification in order to offer an integrated approach to healthcare in our clinic.
My aim is to offer massage as complementary to your Chiropractic treatment (if recommended by your Chiropractor), or as a stand-alone therapy to relieve muscle tension, help with relaxation, and promote improved circulation.
We may seek your permission in the initial consultation, if appropriate, to refer your case between practitioners in order to offer you the best combination of therapies to maximise your health and well-being.
