Chiropractors Act 1994

Rebecca holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Animal Manipulation from the McTimoney College, validated by the University of Wales. She also holds full indemnity insurance and is therefore fully qualified and insured to practice McTimoney Animal Manipulation. The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) currently regulates the chiropractic treatment of humans, and only practitioners who are registered with the GCC may legally use the title "Chiropractor". Animal practitioners are not eligible to join the GCC as it is only concerned with human treatment. Rebecca is not qualified to treat humans, and is therefore not eligible to join the GCC. She therefore does not describe herself as a chiropractor, chiropractic practitioner, chiropractitioner, chiropractic physician, or any other kind of chiropractor, and does not wish to imply that she is any of the above. This is in compliance with Section 32 of the Chiropractors Act 1994. To learn more about the regulation of chiropractors please see


Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966

The treatment of animals is currently regulated under the Veterinary Act 1966, making it illegal for any person to treat an animal unless they are a Veterinary Surgeon or a recognised paraprofessional with veterinary consent to treat the animal. McTimoney Animal Practitioners are recognised as paraprofessionals under the Veterinary Surgeons (Exemptions) Order 1962. Therefore, it is a legal requirement for veterinary permission to be granted before a McTimoney treatment may take place. To learn more about the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 please see
