Cheshire-born Principal Osteopath, Adam Tilstone DO, and his colleagues are registered with the General Osteopathic Council and are members of the Institute of Osteopathy. All practitioners regularly attend post-graduate courses, and seminars as part of their continued professional development.

Adam Tilstone DO 

Principal Osteopath

Adam Tilstone - Registered Osteopath

After leaving Sandbach Grammar School, Adam trained at the University College of Osteopathy. He then returned to his home county of Cheshire and established two thriving clinics in Alsager and Nantwich. It was his ambition to run a multi-therapy practice and so WeaverHouse was established in 1996. Adam has completed the Osteopathy ‘National Mentoring Scheme’ and has mentored newly qualified osteopaths. Adam enjoys treating animals and his career has enabled him to travel extensively. Adam is a structural osteopath and has experience in treating numerous conditions and patients of all ages.

For over 30 years, Adam has been the Principal Practitioner, and, as such, has worked alongside various colleagues and associates that have brought many skills to the company. The conditions he treats include: acute and chronic spinal back pain, arthritis, nerve root pain (sciatica), repetitive strain injury, cervical whiplash and postural changes in pregnancy. Adam’s reputation is well-established with the local GP surgeries and surgeons.

Adam‘s proudest moments include graduating from the University of Osteopathy with a Diploma in Osteopathy and, more recently, when the company was awarded the Institute of Osteopathy “Practice of the Year” award in 2019/20.

Adam likes nothing more than spending time in his garden with his dogs Toby and Mabel and caring for Henry the horse. His other interests include entertaining and cooking for friends.

Andrew Antoniou 

Practice Manager

Andrew brings a wealth of experience in delivering outstanding customer service. Working within the hospitatlity sector from a very young age, he learnt very quickly that satisfied and well-taken-care-of customers are the best brand ambassadors.

‘I am incredibly customer-oriented, and nothing but the very best will do. I strive to make every single client feel welcome and comfortable during their visit to us, and I am really excited to welcome past, present and future clients to our brand new bespoke premises located just a few minutes drive from Nantwich town centre.”

Andrew is a keen horseman and competes most weekends, assisted by his super groom, Adam! Dogs Toby and Mabel also come along for the ride!

Nicola Van Wyk

Client Services Manager

Nicola joined WeaverHouse in 2014 as a receptionist. Nicola transferred to WeaverHouse Equine, which was another part of the company, dealing with Osteopathy for horses.

This was an extremely challenging role, scheduling over 300 horses a month for appointments in various parts of the UK and Channel Islands. WeaverHouse Equine was sold 3 years ago as part of the downsizing of the company.

Nicola returned to WeaverHouse Mainline as our Client Services Manager. Nicola has over 25 years of experience in customer-facing roles and works closely alongside the Practice Manager. Nicola is warm and friendly and will endeavour to make sure your visit to the practice runs smoothly.

Nicola lives in Nantwich, with her husband Stuart and their daughter Gracie.
