Chiropractor: Louise Marshman MSc (Chiro), D.C.
Louise graduated top of her year from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth in 2004. She gained a first class honours in her Bachelor’s degree and a distinction in her Master’s degree. Louise’s achievements were acknowledged by the British Chiropractic Association and she received an award for outstanding academic achievements. Prior to her chiropractic training, she also completed a BSc (Hons) degree in Physical Education & Sports Science at Loughborough University, where again she excelled and gained a first class honours degree.
Louise is qualified in myofascial dry needling, which is a medical form of acupuncture. This technique allows her to use acupuncture needles to help reduce muscle spasm and is very popular among her patients. Acupuncture is recommended by NICE (the advisory body to the NHS) as a modality that can be considered in the treatment of back pain. She also has a particular interest in treating headaches, particularly migraines and headaches arising from the neck. It was as a sufferer herself that Louise first found Chiropractic and its benefit in the prevention of migraines. Louise works at the clinic three days a week, offering early morning treatment sessions.
Louise’s hobbies include tennis and badminton. In tennis she has represented Yorkshire for over 30 years and was a national junior doubles champion. She currently plays competitively for Yorkshire, York Tennis Club and for Selby Drax badminton club.

Andrew has a keen interest in sport, gaining a BSc (Hons) in Physical Education & Sports Science at the world renowned Loughborough University. He captained the Welsh Cross Country team as a junior athlete and currently plays squash for Selby in the York and District Squash League.
It was through his participation in sport that Andrew developed an interest in Chiropractic. During his teens he used Chiropractic to treat any injuries that he developed and to maximise his sporting performance.
