News of Old Buckenham clinic

The Clinic on the Green is closing

The Clinic on the Green is sadly closing after 13 years. The clinic was started by Emma Broom, an osteopath, in 2003. Many people have gone in feeling at the end of their tether and come out amazed at how much better they feel, not just from osteopathic treatment, with chiropody, massage, hypnotherapy, acupuncture and more. Some people just popped in to pick up a copy of the Old Buckenham village newsletter.
Last year Emma applied for planning to expand the clinic to increase from four treatment rooms to six. Although this was supported by the Parish Council, Norfolk County Council Highways decreed that there was not enough parking for all the rooms to be in use at once, which made the plan financially unviable.
Most of the therapists have found other places to work. Emma will be working closer to home, in Rowan House, a new complimentary health and well-being centre in Hethersett (01603 813987). The clinic building will be put up for sale in the long term, perhaps returned to a domestic dwelling. In the short term, Collette Murphy will continue to offer beauty treatments and massage from the clinic. Contact details of all the therapists will be on the clinic website and for those technophobes among you, on a good old fashioned bit of paper in the window of the clinic building.

(The official last day for the clinic is Friday 15 April although Collette Murphy, beauty and massage, will still be at the premises for sometime longer. She should be contacted on 01842 761325 as the existing clinic phone number will not be operative)
