Affordable Acupuncture Clinic
Welcome to Hull and East Yorkshire Community Acupuncture run by Jane Marsh and Eileen Birrell.
Our community clinics are located on Bean Street (off Anlaby Road) in Hull and York Road Market Weighton, in the heart of East Yorkshire within easy reach of Driffield, Pocklington and Beverley.
Alternative medicine can be costly. At Hull and East Yorkshire Community Acupuncture we are committed to keeping acupuncture affordable for all. We can achieve this by treating several people together in one room. The needles need 20 – 30 minutes to do their work. The acupuncturist can place the needles in one patient, leaving them to relax into their treatment and move on to the next patient. By working in this way the price of a treatment is significantly reduced. Cheap acupuncture does not mean poor quality acupuncture. The standard of treatment in our clinics is of the same high quality you would expect in any private one to one clinic, but by keeping our overhead costs low we can pass those savings onto our patients.

Since qualifying, both Jane and Eileen were privileged to have studied under the late, great Dr. Tan. His Balance Method is based on Meridian therapy and as such, comes from a different philosophy to Traditional Chinese Medicine. According to Dr. Tan - the master - (with 50 years' experience under his belt), one can expect instant relief especially in the case of pain. We do realize in reality, and with a little less than 50 years experience, this can occur on occasions, but is more likely to take a series of treatment for long term relief! The Balance Method is a versatile form of treatment and can be used for a whole range of conditions from pain (muscular skeletal, through to migraine headaches) to internal conditions (such as digestive or gynecological disorders) and also encompasses emotional problems.
Helen Singleton has recently joined the team in Hull and is also trained in Dr Tan’s methods. Helen is a qualified physiotherapist and has also completed a Masters degree in Acupuncture which allows her to use acupuncture for much more than just painful conditions. Helen is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy ( CLICK HERE to learn more) and also is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (CLICK HERE to visit their website), both of these organisations ensure that she follows strict codes of professional conduct and safety.
The Balance Method lends itself to use in a low cost, multi bed clinic, making high quality treatment affordable. This style of clinic is unique in Market Weighton and Hull and makes affordable acupuncture accessible to the communities of Pocklington, Driffield, Beverley and the surrounding villages.
Jane and Eileen are on the voluntary register vetted and approved by The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This scheme was set up by The Department of Health and is administered by an independent body which is accountable to parliament. By choosing a registered acupuncturist, patients can be assured of the highest professional standards of treatment and care.
