History

Osteopathy treatment room

The Liberty Clinic was first established in 1985 by Luke Bennett and Lisa Abrahams after they both graduated from the British School of Osteopathy.  The practice soon grew and quickly expanded into the premises at 394 Romford Road, Forest Gate.

Luke's Grandfather established a chain of fitness centres in 1933 in Southsea, Portsmouth which used the groundbreaking idea of weight training for health, sport rehabilitation and conditioning.

Luke has a wealth of experience in the field of health and fitness and comes from a long line of fitness pioneers.

Luke's parents also established their own gyms in London back in the 1950ís with the emphasis on health through exercise and nutrition.  His mother opened a health food shop in the early 70ís promoting the then revolutionary principles of healthy eating and nutritional supplements  to assist the bodies natural healing mechanism, moving away from drugs and medical intervention.  Now 74 she still runs her own fitness centre in Portsmouth, training every day and also travelling the world in her capacity as an international body building judge.

In the 1960ís a young Austrian body builder came under the tutelage of his family. His name was Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Arnold promotes health and exercise through his organisation The Physical Council of America and still attributes much of his success to the mentoring he received from his english family.

An interesting article and an insight into Luke Bennett's upbringing can be found here in an article in the Daily Telegraph.

The Liberty Clinic employs these ideals through gentle osteopathic treatment, coupled with exercise (we have a fully equipped rehabilitation centre) and life style recommendations.
