DEEP OSCILLATION® - The Perfect Compliment For McTimoney In Equine

Feedback from Alana Macartney MSc BSc (Hons) MMAA

Read on PressReleasePoint 04.11.2016


"I treat many horses as a McTimoney Practitioner which are uncomfortable through the musculoskeletal system due to injury, exercise or age. DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy perfectly compliments the McTimoney treatment in providing a soft tissue treatment which has a deeper effect on the tissues than manual massage and is more comfortable for the animal to receive whilst being less demanding on my own body, enabling me to provide a very holistic, gentle and effective treatment."

MSc Animal Manipulation


McTimoney Manipulation is a gentle but highly effective technique which works to realign and balance the musculoskeletal system helping to restore health and movement, soundness and performance. McTimoney treatment is so effective because it identifies and treats the cause of the issue rather than just the signs. All animals will benefit from McTimoney treatment whether an elite competition horse or a happy hacker, a highly trained working or competition dog through to a much loved family pet.
