    The McTimoney 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.

    Since its inception the McTimoney College has grown from strength to strength over the last 50-years to become one of Europe’s leading dedicated providers of chiropractic education.
