About Us

Footopia emerged as the first clinic to launch medical and cosmetic foot treatments under one roof, a formula well received by the public and press alike.

The brainchild of both Robyn Opie, previously of The Chelsea Nail Studio and one of the first to introduce nail bars to London in the 90’s, and Dipesh Raja, a highly qualified HCPC registered Podiatrist with both private and NHS experience, Footopia was established as an alternative to the standard nail bar – essentially to offer a one-stop- shop experience, i.e. offering a thorough overhaul of your feet from medical to cosmetic, and guaranteeing well groomed hands.

Set up in 2003 as a concession within Peter Jones as part of their refurbishment programme, Footopia quickly became an important part of the fabric of Chelsea’s service providers, establishing a formidable reputation for efficiency and excellence. Since then, they have attracted a loyal, returning client base locally, UK-wide and internationally.

Following 8 years of successful operation, Footopia moved to a newer and larger location, offering a wider range of services as well as developing their own range of products.

Founder & Director

Dipesh Raja

Dipesh is an HCPC registered Podiatrist with over 30 years of clinical experience and is a member of the Royal College of Podiatry. He graduated with an honours degree in Podiatric Medicine from the University of Westminster in 1994. Dipesh has previously worked in the NHS, and as a Regional Clinical Manager for Scholl UK.

In 2003 Dipesh created Footopia with Robyn Opie and opened within the prestigious Peter Jones in Chelsea. Here his vision was to create a fusion between medical and beauty foot treatments, essentially a utopia for feet.

Today, Dipesh, (“a pukka Podiatrist with all the requisite medical training” – The Times) has a very loyal following and waiting lists to see him are the norm. He is frequently quoted in the national press, has appeared on national television and according to the Daily Mail is “one of London’s five best Podiatrists”.
