Acupuncture & Remedial Sports massage in York – with Ben Elliot
Ben has been working at York Clinic since 2011 and studied Acupuncture at the Northern College of Acupuncture and Remedial Massage at the Northern Institute of Massage. He combines acupuncture and massage to develop a treatment best suited to his patient, and also offers acupuncture and massage as stand-alone treatments accounting for the issue being treated and patient preference.
He treats a wide variety of conditions and specialises in musculoskeletal conditions, depression, anxiety and migraine using a combination of acupuncture and massage. As work and lifestyle is often a contributing factor to many issues, he also offers detailed lifestyle advice, exercises, postural advice and stretch routines, individually tailored to help his patients overcome or manage any issues in the long term.
Outside of the clinic, Ben works at the Northern College of Acupuncture as the Bodywork module leader on the Acupuncture degree course. He is also involved in treating the side-effects of prostate cancer treatment with the Prostate Leeds group, which was formed by the attendees of a group acupuncture session at St. James Hospital where Ben worked for 5 years. Ben has also been involved in clinical research at York University and has work published on acupuncture in the treatment of depression and neck pain.
