Footopia emerged as the first clinic to launch medical and cosmetic treatments under one roof, a formula well received by the public and press alike. Treatments such as foot facials (footcials) were researched and developed and successfully introduced in to the market and became long standing and popular.

Set up in 2003 as a concession within Peter Jones as part of their refurbishment programme, Footopia quickly became an important part of the fabric of Chelsea’s service providers, establishing a formidable reputation for efficiency and excellence. It has attracted a loyal, returning client base locally, UK-wide and internationally.

Following 9 years of successful operation, Footopia is stepping out to a newer and larger location, offering a wider range of services and an eclectic range of products.
