Victoria - City Athletic

Due to recent outbreak of Covid-19, Victoria has closed for the forseeable future. We are now taking video osteopathy consultations. For for information please click here – Video Consultations

 

 

Our Victoria clinic is based in City Athletic, one of London’s premier training facilities. This is their second gym after the success of Bank and continues their aim of providing state of the art equipment in a boutique environment.

City Athletic was created in 2012 by Ben Claypole and Shaun Stafford with the goal of providing members the opportunity to train like a modern day athlete in the heart of Central London.

Victoria is our largest clinic with two rooms, access to Pilates and Yoga studio and stretch area all on one floor. Here we aim to provide the one stop shop to take you on the journey from injury, diagnosis, rehabilitation and back to full ftiness, whatever that may be. We have a team of Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Sports Therapists and Sports Masseurs that will provide the appropriate therapy, depending on your state of injury. This is our biggest and most exciting project to date!
