Andrew qualified alongside Melinda in 1989. He was for many years a senior lecturer at the British School of Osteopathy, where he was a clinic tutor, lecturer in Osteopathic Principles and Mechanics, and dissertation supervisor.
He sees Osteopathy as having a great role to play in developing a national strategy for integrated healthcare, and practices on the simple premise that if a person’s body is allowed to work properly, then there are very few conditions which do not respond to Osteopathic treatment. After all, the body wants to heal itself. He specialises in the difficult, the unusual and complicated, from problems with fertility all the way through life to solutions for chronic illness. He runs a specialised clinic for tension headache, and associated ENT complaints including Menieres etc. Andrew welcomes referrals from Doctors and other practitioners wanting either a second opinion or a different approach when progress is proving difficult.
Thoughtful and experienced, Andrew welcomes chronic cases, especially chronic pain, ME etc which respond to a steady, upbuilding approach.
"I regularly see Andrew Cotton, I first saw him several years ago for chronic facial pain which his treatments helped to manage and alleviate. He has a fantastic approach to integrated healthcare, and his treatments help the body to work properly. I would highly recommend Andy and the clinic, everyone is so friendly, a warm healing place to go when you have a problem." - Alex Robson
