A Clinic You Can Trust

After 14 years working as a part of The Wellness Therapy Centre in Virgin Active, ARC Osteopathy was set up as a separate entity to focus on the delivering of high quality Osteopathic healthcare and sports massage. With this we opened a new clinic in Carshalton Beeches and moved with the Wellness Therapy Centre to a new clinic in Croydon.

All of our Osteopaths are passionate about helping you improve and maintain health. We are all registered with the General Osteopathic Council and have professional indemnity insurance and are all DBS checked.

As a team, we treat a wide range of patients, from children to octogenarians for a variety of complaints.

While we are registered with all the major insurance companies, you don’t need insurance to visit us. As primary healthcare practitioners, you can book directly with us, without a GP referral.

We are trained in a range of styles (including structural Osteopathy, classical Osteopathy, Cranial and Visceral Osteopathy) and techniques.

We are also trained in adjunct therapies including Western Medical Acupuncture, Ultrasound, Rock Taping, Taping and Strapping and we will also provide you with ongoing exercises and a rehabilitative program.

All so that we can provide the most effective treatment individually tailored to you.

For more information or to book, feel free to contact us via our contact page or by phone on 020-3745-9532 for Croydon or 020-3764-2913 for Carshalton

Patient testimonials


Alan and the team are wonderful. Have been a patient here for 2 years and followed them through both sites. The place is clean, am treated with a smile and care and always come out happy and feeling a few years younger. I would have no reservation recommending Arc Osteopathy for anyone looking for an Osteopath in Croydon.

Alan is a very friendly, professional & knowledgeable osteopath. In my case, my neck was feeling much better after the first (same day) appointment and back to normal after a second appointment a week later. Alan also provided video exercises to improve my condition. I will highly recommend the services of Arc Osteopathy! Thank you, Alan!

Elena T

Early last year I was having terrible pain in one of my knees and could barely walk. Over a number of months Alan treated me and showed me what exercises to do and what to avoid. I am now signed off from treatment and enjoying doing everything I did before and more. Thanks to Alan.

I met Alan in 2013 when I had bruises my ribs. Thanks to him, I was able to climb to the top of Mount Kinabalu in South East Asia two months later. Since then, I swear by him. I cannot recommend him enough. I drive an hour each way to see him for a 30 min session. He is the best osteopath in London.
