Activator Methods Technique is a ‘soft’ form of ‘no crack’ chiropractic care. It has been developing for over 50 years and is intended to gently assist people who present with a wide range of health problems.

This ‘low-force technique’ aims to restore more normal spinal patterns of movement in an injured back without the need for ‘cracking’ your spine.

Rod McLean has practiced the Activator technique for 35+ years and has assisted as a table instructor for Activator Seminars in 2001.
