What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy utilising a mixture of techniques including the osteopaths adjustments – which are fast but gentle joint releases, making a little audible pop.
People of all ages who suffer from pain, tackling complaints ranging from sports and work-related injuries to arthritis, sciatica and migraine visit an osteopath.
The osteopath’s role is to improve the patient’s function and mobility and often pain is instantly alleviated althoiugh more than one treatment is often needed.
Visiting our osteopaths, you will be treated from 3 basic principles:
1) Your body is a whole and must be regarded and treated as such.
2) Your body’s structure and function are mutually interdependent , so we help the structure to function better.
3) Your body can under the right conditions heal itself and this is what we aim to facilitate with our treatments and advice.
Physio Treatment by Ange
During my business trip to London, I twisted my back and was in pain. I found Central London Osteopathy and got an appointment just a couple of hours later. I was referred to Ange who treated me very professionally in such a way that may back was much better after the session. He has a very good understanding of the body and knew exactly what to do. I definitively can recommend Ange and the osteopathy
Outstanding clinic. I have been seeing Torben and Stephanie for 18+ months. Their combined expertise helped me overcome a long-term back/hip issue, and uncovered the source of the problem almost immediately after more than 10 years of seeking treatment elsewhere. On-going treatment with Stephanie has been an absolute game-changer, and has allowed me to get back into weight training pain free. Can not recommend highly enough!
Neck Pain Treatment

Anna Friel Recommends
"The only man who touches my back (when there are problems) is Torben. He is THE BEST. When I was told my back would take 2 weeks to fix - Torben had me on my feet in 2 days.
Back and Neck Injury
Just came back from a treatment at Central London Osteopathy this morning... yet AGAIN they've taken me from zero mobility to completely normal... I can't recommend this clinic more....C.L.O. is a life saver!
The best clinic in London- I wouldn’t put my trust anywhere else. Whatever back problem you have - it’s always fixed and whenever it’s an emergency they do their best to fit you in ASAP. Excellent service from start to finish.

“I would say my approach starts with listening, whether it is verbal or non-verbal, the body itself gives a lot of information.
As a part of my observation, I will evaluate your posture, the relative position of the different segments of your spine while resting, standing and in movement and the function of your main area of concern.
While treating, I use and induce motion as a main tool to show the right healing direction to your body. This could be done through adjustments, mobilizations, rehabilitation exercises, muscle release and stretches or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitations techniques. The aim will be to raise your body awareness, giving back to your body its proper postural harmony and function. Complementary techniques can involve kinesiotaping, acupuncture, myofascial work, trigger point techniques, positional release.
I know the body is organised in muscular chains, hence the root of your problem can be somewhere else than your main area of concern. Also, prevention and well-being is very important to me and I will gladly appreciate any discussion about meditation, breathing, training and least but not last stretching.”
