Hoxton Health was set up in 1987 to

  • To enable older people to lead independent lives within the community;
  • To improve the mobility of service users;
  • To offer services users coping strategies to deal with chronic degenerative diseases;
  • To reduce isolation;
  • To help older people make informed choices regarding their health care.

When we set up the life expectancy of a man living in Hackney was ten years LESS than their peers in Chelsea.  More than 30 years later ‘Marmot 10 years on’ found –


Better health and well-being is associated with greater personal resilience so we run low-cost and free specialised and supported exercise classes and provide a range of one-to-one therapies which put older people at their heart.

Starting with acupuncture and homeopathy, the services expanded to meet demand and we now offer acupuncture, aromatherapy, craniosacral therapy, foot health, herbal medicine, homeopathy, massage, reflexology and shiatsu.

Hoxton Health is a charity (Reg. Charity No 1127769) and limited company (Reg. Company No 6766670), with a Board of Trustees who meet six times a year.
