Tarka Clinic is located in the centre of Barnstaple on Paiges Lane. It was opened by Sir Ranulph Fiennes on 16th July 1999. The Tarka Clinic is a dynamic, vibrant practice. Instead of having a number of practitioners working independently of each other, the members of Tarka Clinic work as a team, focussing on different aspects of the person's life in order to maximise their health potential.

The Tarka Clinic is fully accessible by wheelchair, with double entrance doors, a toilet suitable for disabled people and a room with a wide door for wheelchair access.

In the retail section, there is an excellent and exclusive range of vitamin and  mineral supplements and Aloe Vera products stocked in our sales area. Lumbar support belts, joint supports, therabands and heel lifts are also available. These products are selected to enhance the effectiveness of the therapeutic interventions given by the practitioners.
