Displaying Custom Post Type Category from Taxonomy

Hi everyone, I have a doozy of a question, and I reckon it might be one for Zac Gordon, but no doubt there's a fair few WordPress champs who might also know this.

I'm creating a site for my wife's day spa using WordPress (obviously) and I am really struggling with trying to display treatment categories and then whatever is contained within that category. I have created a taxonomy called 'treatment-categories' with Custom Post Types UI and setup the custom post type with Advanced Custom Fields. I hope I'm making sense on this cause this issue really makes no sense to me!

Basically I'm looking to have the following on the treatments page:

  • Treatment Category
    • Treatments listed under that particular category

Category i.e. Hair Removal Treatments within that category i.e. Full Leg Wax I have searched and searched Google, all I can find is how to set this up, but I haven't seen any information on how to output the categories to a page.

Any help on how I can accomplish this will be greatly appreciated as I've been stuck on this for days and it's killing me!
