After careful thinking i have decided to call the new clinic 'Kelham Therapy Room'. It will be marketed as an independent holistic clinic based inside Kelham Arcade. All the therapists will continue to be self-employed but i will market and advertise the venue under the new name.
So the clinic has changed a bit more since last week......
The walls have been repainted and the windows cleaned. Underlay has been fitted along with a 12mm laminate floor with an oak finish. I'm really hoping the thick floor will keep any sound from outside the room to a minimum. The aim for the clinic has always been to give it a professional medical feel without it being 'plastic' or IKEA-ISH, if that is even a word. Not that i have a problem with IKEA! I just want to use more antiques and old furniture to fill the room.
To add to the look i have managed to source an old 'Belfast' sink. It was absolutely filthy when i found it at Swiftie's on Abbeydale road. But after some tough love and a lot of hot steam it has come up quite nicely. I will need this for washing hands for any examination or cleaning equipment used in prescription making.
Hopefully the lights, dimmers, blinds and sink will all be fitted in the coming days and then the furniture will be ready to go in.
It is looking like the official opening day will be the middle of March. The first popup shop catering for Peddler's Market will be the start of April. Expect lots of herbal products such as Neil's Yard Remedies, handmade creams, teas, unique jewelry and essential oils.
I already have a few therapists who have seen the room and want to work from it. Please get in touch if you want to have a chat about my ideas for the space and to see if you want to join the team.
