We are Appletree Clinic Osteopathy & Acupuncture but our treatments also include cranial osteopathy (adults and babies), massage, reflexology and much more. We are based on the border between Dundee and Angus behind Broughty Ferry. Whether you are young or old, have injured yourself doing something you shouldn’t, or are just feeling that you need a boost we would like to help.

Ultimately there’s no substitute for a face-to-face chat about your wellbeing but, in the current circumstances, we recommend that you call us for a chat so that we may understand your needs and direct you to the appropriate practitioner.

Our normal opening hours are:

Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 5.30pm.  If we are closed or unable to take your call please leave a message with your name and number and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. (It’s a good way to get in the queue as we always get to phone messages first!)

At Appletree all our practitioners want to be able to provide you with the very best of care and attention that we can.  We try to be available during the times our patients need and in order to achieve this we appreciate your help in keeping our schedule running efficiently.

If you do need to change or cancel an appointment, we ask that you notify us BY PHONE at least 24 hours in advance of the appointed time.  This allows us the best opportunity to offer the appointment to someone else who may need it urgently.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to circumstances outwith our control cancellations cannot be accepted via social media.

In our continuing commitment to provide the best experience to all our patients and out of consideration for our practitioners’ time, we have adopted the following policies:

Late arrival

Late arrivals can set back our schedules significantly.  If you arrive late, your session may be shortened to the remainder of your original scheduled appointment.  If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule.  If you feel you are going to be late please call the clinic on 01382 737808 as soon as possible.

Cancelling an appointment

You may cancel or reschedule your appointment prior to 24 hours in advance without charge.  If, however, you cancel or reschedule within the 24 hour period before your appointment time you may be charged 100% of the fee for the appointment.

Not attending a scheduled appointment

If you do not attend for a scheduled appointment and do not provide advanced notice, you will be charged the full price of the scheduled visit.  We understand that unforeseen circumstances can occur and if this is the case, please call the clinic and let us know at the earliest opportunity.

If you have several missed or late appointments, we reserve the right to decline to treat you in the future.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Visiting Kevin I was a bit skeptical on the results but after only 2 sessions of acupuncture the pain had gone and I was back to sleeping properly at nights. I have now been back for my migraines and they have been at bey now for 9 months. [/fusion_testimonial][fusion_testimonial name=”Zoey McClellan” avatar=”female” image=”” image_border_radius=”” company=”Perthshire” link=”” target=”_self”]My husband bought me an acupuncture voucher years ago and I never used it because I was scared of needles but after seeing my work colleague come back from her session with Appletree I thought I should give it a try. Not only was I so relaxed but it was totally painless and the tension that I have lived with in my neck and shoulders has gone, now its just a session every 6 months to keep it away![/fusion_testimonial][fusion_testimonial name=”Kay Boath” avatar=”female” image=”” image_border_radius=”” company=”Monifieth” link=”” target=”_self”]I have used Kevin now for many years during flare ups of a lower back problem.

Kevin himself clearly has a passion for his profession and is extremely knowledgeable and skilled resulting in treatment done with confidence and enthusiasm. Kevin never recommends any further sessions unless he believes they would be of benefit.
