Hello Everyone,

I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong forum. I’m having a difficult time finding the appropriate forum or placed to post this. I am getting ready to open up a small community acupuncture clinic and wondering if anyone can direct me to the best place to purchase zero gravity (or the like)chairs, TDP lamps and blankets?

Thank you much!

If you want lazy boy type recliners hit up Craigslist, Goodwill, freecycle groups in your area.  Zero’s are pretty reasonable on Amazon.  They have super cheap fleece blankets (like, $2/each cheap) at Ikea in my area but sadly there are not Ikea stores everywhere.  Congrats and good luck to you!

Also see http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/search.cmd?form_state=searchForm&N=0&fsch=true&Ntk=AllProducts&Ntt=chair&x=0&y=0&WTz_l=Header;Search-All+Products for zg recliners on sale right now.  The cabelas chairs are mesh and seem to provide a bit more support than the la fumas.

Good luck!

Hi there Purple PIns! I hope your opening goes smoothly. 

Here are a couple threads that might help you on your way smile:

TDP lamps— https://www.pocacoop.com/forums/viewthreads/577/

Keeping Patients Warm Blanket style—https://www.pocacoop.com/forums/viewthread/776/

Why not space blankets—https://www.pocacoop.com/forums/viewthread/923/

Getting Chairs—https://www.pocacoop.com/forums/viewthread/933/

My bet is that if you dig deep you can find even more on the topic!! 

Keep those questions and searches coming!
