Community workshops.

Visited Lea Road Community Church again yesterday in Wolverhampton and  supported their Roma group with a massage workshop.  

Initially everyone received a 10 minute treatment and we then led them in a  structured massage session with the aim ofbthem beibg able to provide each other with basic massage.

Brilliant afternoon was had by us and the Roma group.  We had lots of laughing,  interaction and everyone fedback how relaxed they felt and we’re ready to go it alone.

Not just the adults got involved too.   We had the dad’s and even the children ready to give it a go. Everyone got involved..

If you run a community group and would be interested in us visiting you to conduct a similar session, please contact us –  we would love to hear from you.

These workshops are great way of integrating a community and any language barrier which may have been there wasn’t obvious as we all watched and followed each other.

Fab Week of Workshops

Well, what a wonderful week of workshops we have had and what lovely people we have met and shared some self help skills with.

The Wellbeing workshops were a short intro into how our bodies cope with everyday life and some self help skills that you can use anywhere to support our when you need it’ll.

We have had some great feedback and we will post the comments we have had after the weekend.

The social part of our project has been received really well & we will look to hopefully do more of them after the summer.

Follow us in Facebook & Twitter for updates on what we are doing & when the next ones will be.

If you want us to come to your place of work etc and deliver one specifically for you then please get in touch.

Our first introductory workshop


We held our first introductory wellbeing workshop at the new M & S Community room in Wolstanton on Tuesday.

We had a great time showing everyone  self help techniques can used to help promote relaxation.

These workshop are suitable for the workplace, for charities or other similar organisations or support groups and content can be adapted to suit your aims.

We will no doubt be holding another one so if you are interested in receiving information or attending please complete our contact page and let us know your details.

World Cancer Day

World cancer day started with the news that 1 in 2 of us will be at some point affected by cancer  – because we are living longer.
We have both been personally affected by cancer and because of this it is why our service exists.
Both from personal experience and from the evidence available, we know Complementary Therapies can support your quality of life.
At a funding conference tomorrow at Keele to see what help is available to help us grow and do more.
