The treatment was created by John McTimoney and later refined and developed by Hugh Corley (a student of John McTimoney) and Shelagh James-Hudson, for the promotion of good health and general well-being in humans and animals. McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapists are a separate organisation to McTimoney Chiropractic, although they share a common founder John McTimoney.
