Kensington Health & Beauty

Health & Beauty neighborhood
South Kensington Club
38-42 Harrington Rd., Kensington
In a city full of stuffy clubs for the elite, the SKC (as it's called for short) comes as a welcome relief. They've tapped into the wellness scene and created a cozy, comfortable, classy home-away-from-home for the health-obsessed. Here members can drop in for a whirl around the world-class Russian baths, have a quality massage or facial, sup on avocado toast and green juice, and hit the gym after with some of the best trainers in town. (The sessions with Paola of Paola's Body Barre are our favorites.) In the evening, you can check in upstairs for a lecture on some remote part of the world, given by the Voyager Club—they can also book trips through them, to say, the Arctic—and then head to the DJ booth for late night drinks and dancing. It pretty much ticks all the boxes for the cool and well-to-do down in Chelsea, South Ken, Holland Park, and beyond.
Victoria Young
The Health Partnership, 12a Thurloe St., Kensington
Using a combination of methods including homeopathy, herbs, and meditation, Victoria helps clients gently re-establish a healthy balance within mind and body. Often, her clients come to her riddled with the stresses of modern day life, and so she's not just treating symptoms but rather looking for the underlying causes which can often be emotional rather than physical. Consultations begin with a bioenergetic scan which gives a reading of energetic blockages, organs that are under stress, allergies, etc. From there, Victoria tailors her treatment to address these ailments with recommendations ranging from diet to herbal and homeopathic remedies.
