Robert La Touche BA (Mod) MSc DC MMCA MCC

spineRobert La Touche graduated with an honours degree in Natural Sciences in 1972 and went on to study for and receive an MSc in Marine Zoology. He then worked as a marine biologist for University College Galway for 14 years.

During this time his interest in complimentary medicine grew until in 1994 he enrolled in the McTimoney Chiropractic College, graduating with a Diploma in Chiropractic in 1997.

Since then he has devoted considerable efforts to improve his chiropractic techniques through continuous professional development courses. His chiropractic treatment now consists of mainly Sacro-Occipital Technique “(SOT) a highly diagnostic, effective and gentle therapy. Patients being treated with SOT are re-diagnosed using extremely sensitive SO techniques at each visit and their progress is monitored”.

Most treatments involve gently mobilising the spine with Power Assisted Micro-manipulation “(PAM)”, one of the more significant contributions to spinal care since chiropractic has been practised.

Celloid Mineral Therapy

Celloid mineral therapy is based on the principle that certain mineral deficiencies in the body can result in or complicate most illnesses. Consequently if these deficiencies are treated with celloid minerals health can often be restored or at least improved.

Sometimes the practitioner will work alongside a medical practitioner who is prescribing orthodox drugs.

Celloids consist of salts that occur in reasonable quantity in the body and include the minerals Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Silica, Phosphate, Chloride, Fluoride and Sulphate.

These salts are produced in the same form as they occur in naturally produced food. They are therefore easily utilized by the body and are at their most effective in the treatment of disorders.

The practitioner will take a careful case history of your health before suggesting a combination of celloids which are specific to treating your condition.

For a chronic problem e.g. asthma, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, arthritis, the patient takes a full dose of prescribed minerals for 3 months and is then gradually weaned off his/her prescription over a 2-3 month period. Sometimes a maintenance dose is required to maintain health.
