She subsequently practiced alongside GPs and other health professionals in Wiltshire and North Yorkshire for eight years and overseas for two years. She also uses cupping, moxibustion and is fully qualified with NADA-UK as an acupuncture detoxification specialist.

Train to be a Chiropractor

Teesside University has become the first University in the North East to offer an Undergraduate Degree course in CHIROPRACTIC leading to the award of a MSci (Hons). A foundation year is also available for those without the necessary qualifications. This course has been approved by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and enrolled it's first cohort of students in September 2020. Thirsk Chiropractor Richard Skippings was involved in the Curriculum Development Group which helped to formulate the course content before being submitted to the University and the GCC for formal approval. The Clinic will also be involved as Placement Tutors giving the students experience in how clinics are run and organised and how treatment is given to patients. If you are interested in the possibility of studying Chiropractic at Teesside then applications can be made through the UCAS system or direct with the University.

Free Chat

We have been serving the local community for over 30 years now (first opened on 29th October 1988) and we would like to offer a free, no obligation, 15 minute chat with one of our Chiropractors to see if your condition could be helped by us. Just give us a call and book an appointment - simple as that. If your problem is not suitable for chiropractic then we would endeavour to suggest the appropriate form of treatment for you to try.
