Natural health centre offers more services to Harborough residents with latest expansion

Archway Health on Lubenham Hill in Market Harborough is already one of the largest centres of its kind in the Midlands. However, the centre is about to complete an expansion which will create more treatment rooms and enable Archway to offer essential services such as physiotherapy for the first time.

The expansion is the culmination of an 4 month build and is the third stage of the centre’s long term plan to create a health resource which meets the wide variety of needs of people within the local area. This includes both complementary and more traditional forms of medicine.

Due for completion on 1st August, the build has created four additional treatment rooms over a 860 sq. ft. space, taking the total at Archway Health to 10. One of the rooms will be used by private healthcare provider Spire to enable the wider provision of physiotherapy services in the area.

“As a practice, our growth and development has always been driven by the desire to provide the widest possible range of services so people can take a truly pro-active holistic approach to their own healthcare,” explains Archway Health’s owner Alec Welton. “One of the services that is lacking in this area is in the provision of physiotherapy and this expansion now enables us to offer this service. The new build will also enable us to accommodate more practitioners and offer more appointments for some of the most sought after therapies.”

In keeping with the centre’s sustainability policy, the new rooms have been constructed with energy efficiency in mind. British Gas is due on site to carry out a lighting audit and The Environmental Technology Centre, under an EU grant, is due to spend 3 days on site doing a complete energy use audit.

Archway Health opened on its current site on 6th November 2010. The premises formerly housed the Welland Lodge public house and so an extensive rebuild has taken place over the past 41⁄2 years to include business units, Sheeda’s Beauty Clinic and Body Fitness Personal Training.

Set up by Alec and his wife Stella, the centre has 13 practitioners and 5 tutors offering a range of services including acupuncture, reflexology, reiki, chiropractic, sports massage, hypnotherapy, herbal medicine, nutrition, yoga and Pilates.
