Wellbeing Events

Our Wellbeing Cafés are an opportunity to get free advice from professionals in an informal setting, where we can all learn from each other.

Our professionals are here to answer your questions and offer up advice, they also provide taster sessions of which some are free, others are donations to specific causes and some have a small charge to cover the cost of materials or products used. There will be aromatherapy, lotions, potions, gifts, books, cards and more on offer – many at discounted rates during each event as well as future discount offers for those who attend.

Thank you to everyone who came to this wellbeing café – we had some great feedback from this and it was a very informative afternoon of free advice, chat and taster sessions for our community’s wellbeing. Also a big thank you to all the business that made this possible and to The Friends of Thanckes Park for providing the refreshments.

We took over the whole of the hall this time, keeping our professionals in the theatre section and all the taster sessions were carried out in the smaller chamber room.

Unfortunately the Blue Tit Chill Swimmers were unable to attend as advertised but everyone else did.

  • Kylie, from Cornish Massage & Wellbeing. provided free mini-massage treatments and shared the benefits of massage and deep tissue massage for wellness and recovery.
  • Becky & Mike from Mike Redshaw Physiotherapy & Pilates were both on hand to answer any questions and Becky provided another excellent Pilates taster session followed by an informative wellbeing presentation by Mike.
  • Lisa from the Torpoint Rowers shared the benefits of the great outdoors and the rowing opportunities in Torpoint and she also ran a mini-fitness session for all.
  • Myles from Valley Spirit Health & Fitness was on hand to chat about Yoga as well as providing a yoga taster session, having set up a new Yoga class recently in the Torpoint area.
  • Kay from Just Be Reiki was back offering mini reiki treatments for donations to Luna’s fund – yet again, Kay’s space in the hall was serene, no matter how busy the event was.
  • Debbie of Freedom Counselling chatted about the benefits of counselling and what to expect from it and alongside her Kerri of Grace & Glamour provided a goody bag of freebies and chatted about feel-good treatments and their benefits.
  • And obviously ourselves – Marie, Kevin & Debby from Rogue Debby CIC – where people used our Art for Calm space to reach out and chat and seek advice on living with mental health & disability. We managed to create an environment where chatting felt natural and the people who came to us felt no judgement, but they were heard.

We hope to be doing it all again before the end of the year!
