The University of York clinic

18 March 2020:

The Uni clinic is temporarily closed due to Covid-19

Love Community Acupuncture is closing for the foreseeable future. We have received a recommendation from our professional body, the British Acupuncture Council, to postpone appointments in order to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

We are very sorry to leave our patients without access to affordable acupuncture, but we accept that there’s a risk of spreading the virus if we stay open. So it’s time for us to close our doors in the interests of greater safety for everyone.

If you’re booked in with us, we’ll be in touch soon to cancel and refund any advance payment.

If you feel adrift without your acupuncture appointment, we are offering short online or telephone appointments. Our acupuncturists will talk with you, perhaps do a little guided relaxation work, or demonstrate self-acupressure techniques to help you stay in the best possible physical, mental and emotional health. If you’re interested in this, please email us for more information.

We have really appreciated your support over the last few weeks. It’s been a challenging time for everyone, and we’re ready to play our part in supporting our community. We’ll get through this together.

If you have any questions about our closure, please either email us or call us on 07582 234578.

Please feel free to check back here for future updates.

At the University of York, we run a multibed clinic in partnership with Wentworth College.

This means we have six treatment beds in one large room (W/WCR Common Room), protecting your privacy with towels and screens. 

Students and staff of the University of York are warmly welcome (bring your ID card or book using your Uni email). You can book online in advance or just drop in on the day.

You pay a flat rate of just £15 per treatment. And although our prices are low, of course there’s no compromise on safety, hygiene or effectiveness.

The UoY clinic is open on:

Fridays 8.40am – 5.00pm (including holidays)
with Chrissie ThomasMitchell Macgregor and Karen Charlesworth

Please note that, because of the way we run the clinic to accept drop-ins, you won’t always see the same acupuncturist at the York Uni clinic. All our acupuncturists are equally highly trained and operate to the same standards of safety, hygiene and clinical effectiveness.
