About me

Our key focus at Acorn Health is to help you develop a firm understanding of the cause of your problem. This helps you to make the necessary adaptations to your lifestyle to avoid future pain and problems. Our aim is to get out of pain and moving more freely as quickly as possible. 

Established in 2014, Acorn Health is Emsworth’s award-winning chiropractic clinic and is owned and managed by principal chiropractor Philippa Oakley. We are one of less than 50 clinics in the UK to hold two national awards from the Royal College of Chiropractors in recognition of our clinical excellence which is a huge achievement. 

"My relationship with my chiropractor is one of absolute trust. If any issue arises then I know that I can contact or attend my clinic without fear of delay. My chiropractor Philippa knows me, knows how my body works and takes a huge interest in me as her patient.  I couldn’t be better supported by any other medical practice anywhere." Mr P, West Sussex

"Philippa, I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me through my injury. A silly but painful injury to by elbow while exercising was causing me pain and stopping me from doing a full range of exercises. After suffering for over 5 weeks, I finally booked an appointment to see you! Just 3 sessions later and I am healed!!! The pain has stopped; I have full movement and can do my full range of exercises again. Amazing! 
Your service has been fantastic; you have been compassionate, extremely knowledgeable and great value for money. I have no doubt I would still be in pain, had I not come to see you! If I ever injure myself again, I will not wait so long before booking an appointment! Thank you for all your help and I will definitely recommended you to anyone I meet in need of your services!" Mrs L, Hayling Island
