Title: ‘McTimoney Treatment and the Performance Horse Webinar’

When:  Tue 22nd Sep 2020 @7.00 – 8.30pm

What: Optimising performance in the athletic horse is vital to achieving success.

Research has shown that horses who place higher in FEI 1* events have better symmetry of the spine and pelvis (Keay, Hedderly and Hunnisett, 2018).

The McTimoney treatment approach focuses on achieving symmetry and thereby improving equine athletic performance.

In this free to attend Zoom Webinar learn how the McTimoney approach works for your horse, including the most recent research findings and cases where McTimoney has enhanced performance.

The event will also qualify as 1-hour of CPD.

Nikki also enjoys teaching students at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic, being able to pass on the knowledge and skills which have given her such a varied and interesting career working with so many animals and their owners, to a new generation of animal chiropractic practitioners. Nikki says “Every day is different and every animal I see is an individual, and that makes my work rewarding…. I hope to continue working and teaching for many years to come”.

Based in Somerset, Vanessa Davidson is an active McTimoney Animal Practitioner, maintaining a small client base treating primarily horses and dogs.
