Edel grew up and spent most of her adult life in Dublin, Ireland, where she worked in the Post Office in an administrative capacity. She comes from a family background of complimentary medicine. Edel stumbled upon McTimoney Chiropractic after a chance conversation with an acquaintance about a career move. She investigated the treatment and was drawn to the ‘whole body’ approach of the McTimoney method. After one treatment Edel knew that this was the career that she wanted to pursue and 2 months later she started at the college in Oxfordshire from where she gained a first class honors degree. She has been involved in chiropractic for over 10 years. Edel has attended many courses in advanced McTimoney techniques and has incorporated these in her treatment.
Edel is also a qualified massage therapist and holds an ITEC qualification. She has undertaken further training in Medical Acupuncture and is qualified to use this in the practice. She has also completed courses in a deep tissue massage method called Neuromuscular Re-Education and in Biogeometric Integration as well as Myofascial Release. She is also certified to perform the Epley manoeuver, a method use for the treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). All of these methods can be integrated into the treatment depending on what is required.
Edel is registered with the General Chiropractic Council, is a member of the McTimoney Chiropractic Association and the Royal College of Chiropractors.
