The Team

Amberin Fur – Founder / Director

BSc Hons Ost, DO, DIP WHO (MIH), LFHom

Amberin Fur has been involved in Lifestyle Medicine primarily through her passion and training over her 25 year osteopathic career.  In her quest for helping and serving her patients she established a multidisciplinary clinic 20 years back, bringing together a variety of approaches with the aim to support her patients and work cohesively through to health.  She has since opened another clinic in Mayfair, Central London focusing on providing a premium service and collaborating with experts to deliver a 360 approach to the health of her clients.  Through her experiences, she has found certain factors to be crucial in the care of each individual to underpin the changes needed for optimum health, and to reestablish the body’s efficiency.  She relies on quality laboratory testing using functional medicine methodology, good nutritional support and incorporates new developing technology to help support the patient in a more well rounded way inclusive of their lifestyles.

Her approach to Lifestyle medicine, is a combination of ‘humanware and hardware’.  The abundant data available is drawn upon and used in context to the patient’s lifestyle, presenting symptoms, and genetic predisposition.  This can be as extensive or minimal as required.  The aim is to draw on areas which need support to restore balance in the body and mind and allow for optimum health.  Amberin trained as an osteopath in 1993 at the now University College of Osteopathy, where she went on to teach technique for many years.  She is widely considered a leader in her field.  She currently acts as Vice-Chair on the Osteopathic Alliance (OA). The OA is a collection of the country’s post graduate osteopathic institutions aimed to advise on the policies and direction of the future of osteopathy.  Amberin’s experience has been varied; it has been shaped in elite sport (London 2012 Olympic Games, British Gymnastics Medical Team), performing arts (Cirque du Soleil, The 7 fingers), strengthened by her commitment to further training and post graduate courses.  She has studied under leaders in the fields and has incorporated medical acupuncture, medical homeopathy, and functional medicine.  Further honing her skills to compliment her practice of Lifestyle medicine.

Amberin has created successful clinics both in London and Internationally treating newborns to nobility.  She currently holds her clinic in Mayfair the heart of London. Through the years Amberin has been described as ‘more’ than an Osteopath but she holds true that Osteopathy is at the core of Lifestyle Medicine.  Her patients best describe her treatments as embarking on a journey.
