The Octagon

Who we are, how we tick

The Octagon Family Chiropractic & Pilates Clinic - Hammersmith

The Octagon moved to its’ current location in the summer of 1998 from humble beginnings in Hammersmith.

It was set up by Steve Hughes, a Chiropractor with a passion for paediatric care. The building at that time was a semi-derelict design studio which with a bit of love and a very good carpenter transformed into a clinic with the later addition of a rather wonderful Pilates studio. The space was ideal blessed with loads of natural light in a quiet side street between Chiswick and Hammersmith with sounds of genuine birdsong and church bells only occasionally punctuated by the sirens and other evidence that we truly are on the edge of an urban metropolis.

The original family Chiropractic care ethos soon expanded outwards to encompass other special interests especially pregnancy and the clinic has established a very strong reputation both locally and further afield.

Pilates came to the Octagon in 2017 after many years of conversation and discussion between Steve and Polly Benge, a well-established Pilates teacher, and the realisation that there was such common ground in the philosophy of both disciplines and how they could seamlessly complement and enhance each other. Pilates is now an integral part of the Octagon framework.

There are now six of us here at the Octagon, three Chiropractors and three Pilates instructors along with our front of house team striving to deliver the best possible environment for your care. Rest assured that you are in good hands.
