Osteopathic Association Clinic
8 Boston Place
The Teaching Clinic is for patients who are seen by students of the London College of Osteopathic Medicine. These students are already doctors and are now training to become osteopaths. The students are supervised by our experienced qualified College Tutors and provide osteopathic assessment and treatment. Teaching Clinic appointments are usually 60-90 minutes in length to allow for training, and include both a detailed assessment by the trainee and a review by the supervising tutor.
The London College of Osteopathic Medicine is course recognised by the General Osteopathic Council UK.
Appointments with our trainee osteopaths cost £25.00 each, and are available on Thursdays, Friday mornings, Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

If you would like to pay for your treatment by cash, and have none with you, there are cash machines next door in Marylebone Station, alternatively if you would prefer card payment we have had to introduce a small additional fee for this of under 1% to cover the cost of card payments made by your bank to us. We hope that you understand the reasons for this new policy. The cost of your treatment is still heavily subsidised by Osteopathic Trusts, we offer very competitive high quality osteopathic treatment.
Our practitioners are recognised by a number of Private Health Insurance Providers. While this may ultimately mean that your treatment costs are refunded, it is anticipated that you will pay the appropriate fee when you attend for your appointment, and claim from your Insurer in retrospect. Cash, cheques and credit card payments are accepted.
Receipts can be provided on request.
“... I started seeing the osteopath because of problems with my neck and upper back caused by spending long periods of time on the computer at work. The practice staff are friendly and professional and I'm really happy with the treatment I have received - it's been effective and I've been given lots of practical advice on things I can do while working to relieve discomfort in between my check up appointments. RG, London ...”
“... I spent several months unsuccessfully visiting another osteopathic practice trying to alleviate distressing neck pain, tingling and numbness in my elbow and fingers as well as lower back pain that prevented me sleeping at night. Within weeks of attending the clinic I responded to the treatment, which involved applying manipulation techniques to my body rather than being strapped up to a contraption for the whole session, as had been my previous experience. The discomfort and symptoms that I was experiencing has substantially reduced and feel much more comfortable in my body. My therapist is very engaging and I always feel at ease. The reception staff are welcoming and will also give reminder call the day before appointments. MW, London ...”
“... I was suffering terrible neck pain and a colleague told me about the clinic. I called and got an appointment the very next day. I have had three treatments and this along with the exercises I was given, and tips on sitting correctly at my desk I have seen so much improvement and am now pain free. JB ...”
“... I made an appointment at the training clinic as an old sports injury to my ankle was playing up. The student who was looking after me was very thorough in his assessment and made sure I was comfortable and discussed my case with his supervisor before starting treatment. I found this very reassuring. I have booked a follow up appointment, but I already feel some benefit after just one treatment. The consultation and treatment were not at all rushed. I really felt both the trainee and the supervising osteopath were giving me their full attention ...”
