Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic

Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic is the longest established clinic in town and has been running for over 11 years.  The clinic was set-up by Becky Andrew D.C (Doctor of Chiropractic) who was looking to branch out on her own after working for Ian Hutchinson DC in Chelmsford.  Becky’s family all live in East Sussex so having found a premises that would work as a clinic, it got converted from a children’s nursery into the busy, thriving clinic it is today.

Becky’s desire to work with the body and help improve peoples health and mobility, came from having received chiropractic treatment herself as a sporty teenager with low back pain.

Becky Andrew - BA, MSc, DC

Chiropractor & Owner of Uckfield and Hailsham Chiropractic Clinics

My interest in chiropractic started in 1991 when as a sports scholar I had to visit Richard Rummary (original owner of Hailsham CC), with severe low back pain and was amazed at how after only a few treatments, my mobility and pain improved hugely.

Having gone on a hockey scholarship to the USA to study Anthropology and African studies for 4 years, and spending lots of time in the training room, I knew I wanted to work with the body. So I decided to continue my studies back in the UK studying for a Master’s of Science in Chiropractic at the University of Surrey.

After working for Ian Hutchinson a Chiropractor in Chelmsford for 3 years, I decided to set up on my own nearer family and friends in Sussex. Uckfield Chiropractic Clinic was set up and opened in July 2006. The clinic in Uckfield has flourished and we now have a multi disciplinary team including two chiropractors.

In 2012 I expanded my business and purchased Hailsham Chiropractic Clinic, which is also multi disciplinary, with three Chiropractors. We also have x-ray facilities onsite, which is used by both clinics.

As a chiropractor I thoroughly enjoy treating generations of families. Having a strong background in high level sports, this is always of interest me helping people to perform to their optimum. Also being a parent has given me the impetus to undertake additional courses on chiropractic care during pregnancy. At the clinics we use a wide variety of chiropractic techniques depending on the patients needs - this includes Becky being an advanced level Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique practitioner.

I still enjoy playing and watching sport when I have the time, most of it now taken up by my two young sons who love having treatments and have their own toy activators to perform treatments on family!

Jen Wilson

Bowen Therapist

I stumbled upon The Bowen Technique at a hen party!

A long lost friend Freya, www.discoverbowen.co.uk, who has a practice in Gloucestershire, gave me a Bowen treatment the morning after the night before.

I felt invigorated; I could feel my body adjusting to the treatment and was absolutely amazed how relaxing and powerful Bowen was with such a little amount of bodywork. So much so that I signed up for a course the following week.

I completed the course (through the European College of Bowen Studies) in the summer of 2012 and have been happily practising ever since alongside my other job as a nurse with the NHS in Brighton.
