How long are you getting for £32.50?

Not 100% the same thing but Mrs. Mark runs a traditional Chinese medicine practice. She charges something like £50-£60/hour for massage and acupuncture. Don't quote me on those figures but they're nor far off.

I've used an osteopath who also happened to be a private GP. I was charged £30 for half an hour which I considered to be a very reasonable rate.

I had a problem with a trapped nerve in my upper back/bottom of neck; I got a word of mouth recommendation and popped along to see him and after one session was fixed.

I went back for a follow up session but didn't really it so we agreed I'd only go along when I had a problem after that. Ended up going once, maybe twice a year and now haven't been for some time since I started a bit of keep fit and lost a bit if weight.

A few press ups and crunches every day keep my back straight and strong now.

Edit: It was about £35 for half an hour IIRC, a bargain for what it did for me.

Well worth it.

It took me years to get over a nasty sidecar racing accident (Broken back & scull fracture)
With out my Osteopath I would be in a very different way now.

I go back3-4 times a year to make sure all is still good.

There seems to be pretty good evidence that chiropractics and osteopathy work well for lower back conditions - but rather poor to no evidence for much else that some practitioners claim.

hap I won't ask what it's for but if it's not for a back problem you might want to review the NHS pages on the available evidence regarding effectiveness before splashing the cash.

ETA: Sorry, only just noticed this is a bump of a very old thread from 2014.
