Practitioners

 

Tari Macdonald Senior Practitioner

Following in the footsteps of three generations of his family, Tari graduated from University College London and started his career at the Silver Grey Clinic in 1989. Since then he has expanded the family practice to include new practitioners and a wide range of therapies. Tari practices all aspects of spinal manipulation from classical structural techniques to cranial work on children and babies as well as acupuncture and foot health care. Additionally, he has completed a post graduate course in equine manipulation and acupuncture.

Over the last two decades he has established good working relationships with local Doctors and in recent years he has been working with a leading podiatric (foot) surgeon on developing new types of orthotic foot insoles that are ideal for resolving biomechanical issues (misalignment of bones in feet and legs) which, over time, manifest in many conditions of the neck, hips and spine. Providing custom-made foot orthoses, Tari is an accredited practitioner for all of the major private health insurance companies.
