Foot Centric

Our Story So Far

Priya Astbury, Lead Podiatrist and Clinical Director at Foot Centric, opened the flagship clinic in Stoke-on-Trent in 2018. The state-of-the-art podiatry facility, that now holds position of prominence on Hartshill High Street, came to be through a voyage of shear dedication, and hard-work.

The once derelict boarded-up building first sparked Priya’s interest back in 2011. At this point Priya had no idea who the owner of the neglected building was, but she diligently posted notes through, hoping that someone would make contact and consider selling the premises.

Several years ago, the building, that dates back to the 1800s, finally came onto the market, hooray!  With much needed investment and toil, it is now restored to its former glory and amazingly several of the buildings’ original, historical features are still intact.

An old building brought back to life by Foot Centric

Foot Centric is now firmly on the map and has developed a solid and far reaching reputation for its high-quality, professional podiatry and chiropody treatments.

Priya’s experience in managing her own beauty clinic for 14 years whilst simultaneously completing a podiatry degree gave her insight into what clients really yearned for. High on most people’s agenda was to feel secure in the knowledge that medical standard hygiene practices were being applied to all treatments without any compromise on the environment they were being treated in. This is something Foot Centric excels at. We strive to offer our customers the complete package, that’s why we put as much energy and pride into our clinic atmosphere as we do our treatments.  All of Foot Centric’s services are carried out in fresh, luxurious surroundings and always to an exceptionally high standard.

Going forwards Foot Centric’s main mantra and mission statement is to delight its customers with unrivalled service, treatments and foot problem solutions so that clients return time and time again or recommend us to their nearest and dearest.

Corns? Hard skin? Verrucae? Ingrowing nails? Thickened fungal nails? ……Foot Centric has it all covered with knowledgeable, highly qualified and caring practitioners, ready to work on formulating your tailored treatment plan.
