About The Forge Clinic

At The Forge Clinic, we specialise in manual treatments and alternative therapies. Based in a building that was once a forge, our friendly practitioners have been treating the local community since 1995. In that time, we have built a team that boasts excellent qualifications, a wealth of experience and a commitment to ongoing clinical development.
Welcome to The Forge Clinic, a multi-disciplinary clinic based in the heart of Richmond.
