Welcome to Alchemy
We are pleased to see the lockdown restrictions ease and would like you to know that we will continue to remain open as we have done throughout lockdown. We are grateful that Chiropractic Care was deemed an essential service and that we are able to offer treatment to you.
Our opening times are :-
Monday 9.00 am - 6.00 pm
Wednesday 8.00 am - 5.00 pm
Friday. 9.00 am - 6.00 pm
We have always maintained high standards of hygiene and continue to do so, following the government guidelines to prevent cross infection:
As you enter the clinic, you will find sanitising gel on tap, and we kindly ask you to use the gel on arrival and departure from the clinic; a clear screen has been installed over the front reception desk; we have kept seating to a minimum in the reception area, to reduce footfall and maintain ‘physical distance’; the door handles, counter surfaces, treatment couches, etc. are all sanitised after every patient;
We have also extended the treatment time to allow us to sanitise the couches and ventilate the room after each patient. You will be pleased to know that there has been no extra cost added to your fees.
We respectfully ask you to attend your appointment on time in order that we can adhere to the government guidelines of physical distancing and help the clinic run on time. We suggest you wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing, leaving coats and bags in your car.
Prior to your appointment and before arriving to the clinic you will receive by email a Covid Risk assessment form which we ask you to complete. This has to be done before each appointment. I fully appreciate that this is time consuming, but we hope you understand that it is another responsible measure we need to take.
None of the above is meant to cause concern, we are merely delivering our duty of care to you and offering reassurance that Alchemy is a safe environment for all our patients, as it has always been.
Chiropractic care is important for your overall health and well-being, and I would encourage you all to keep your Chiropractic appointments and regular check ups.
“You are the most important visitor to Alchemy.
You are not dependent on us. We are dependent on you.
You are not an interruption to our work. You are the purpose of it.
You are not an outsider to our clinic. You are part of it.
We are not doing you a favour by serving you.
You are doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.”
Adapted from quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Alchemy Health Clinic was founded in 1982, by Dr Nashir Karmali DC, as a Chiropractic clinic and here at Alchemy we tailor treatment for each individual and provide special care for the newborn and to those in their senior years!
Our youngest patient has been only a few days old and our oldest 104 years young!!
We will do everything we possibly can to offer you the best service and treatments possible
Alchemy, in its broadest definition, means transformation and purification: as is the refinement of gold from ore; similarly it is the refinement of health from ill health.
I believe that within each of us is a state of pure health. Our ability to rediscover, maintain and develop our optimum HEALTH, remains a challenge, both for the individual and the practitioner, at the time of illness as well as when one is feeling well!
Come, let us now walk and share this journey together.....
