The Riverside Clinic was opened in August 2001 by Osteopath Victor Henighan, the director of the clinic. Soon after, the range of treatments expanded to include Complementary Therapies and Acupuncture. The following year, the original Clinic had to be expanded to provide another treatment room for Homeopathy.

To cope with continual increase in demand for treatment, we moved to a larger clinic in a beautiful riverside location. There are now six therapists at The Riverside Clinic; two Osteopaths, two Acupuncturists, a Complementary Therapists and a Homeopath.

There is also a team of receptionists who provide reception cover and clinic administration six days a week.
