The foundation of Alpha Clinic & Aesthetics was established in 2011 as a yoga brand and was re-branded to Balance Clinic in 2017 when our founder (Susan Yu) qualified as an osteopath. From there the clinic expanded its services, adding treatments such as acupuncture, aesthetics, and herbal medicine. London’s first lockdown was then introduced in 2020 and the clinic closed, but Susan decided to take this time to figure out what her next move would be for her clinic and career.
This led to her enrolling at London Business School, to embark on her executive MBA. In March 2021, Alpha Clinic & Aesthetics was born. Generating press in Marie Claire, Men’s Health, and Cosmopolitan.
Susan Yu is a qualified pharmaceutical scientist, has a BSc in osteopathic medicine, is an Executive MBA London Business School scholar, and is President of the LBS Board Fellows Programme.
Through her own health journey that started in 2010 due to burn-out. Susan decided to search for a health clinic that focused on combating and preventing damage caused by stress. As well as fostering self-care routines for the body, both inside and out. Helping her become sustainably successful so that a burn-out would never happen again. But she couldn’t find a clinic that connected the dots between aesthetics and physical & mental health. So she created one.
It took Susan an 11-year healing journey, with 7 years as a yoga instructor, 10 years in Osteopathic Medicine, and another 4 years as an acupuncturist and aesthetic practitioner, and embarking on an Executive MBA during the pandemic, for Alpha Clinic & Aesthetics to come to fruition.
