Feet First Thames

Reflexology is a complementary health therapy which uses the application of pressure using finger and thumb techniques to mainly feet or hands.
It is based on the principle that the entire body is reflected in the feet and hands corresponding to all glands, organs and parts of the body.
Reflexology is holistic and non-invasive, working at the physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual levels.
It assists the body to balance itself promoting gentle alignment of body, mind and spirit to promote wellbeing.

Thames Community Cancer Support Inc

We are dedicated to providing the best support possible to people with cancer, their families and carers and we rely on our volunteers to provide this service. Confidentiality is paramount and volunteers are both trustworthy and empathetic.
Our volunteers have experienced cancer, either personally or with a family member. As well as our committee, we have a dedicated group of people who work 'behind the scenes'.
A coffee morning is held on the third Wednesday of each month
at 10am at the Croquet Room in Beach Road.
Those suffering from cancer and their carers are welcome,
along with family members.
In conjunction with the Cancer Society we have started a 'Men's Space'. This is a monthly meeting on the first Thursday of each month. It is held in the Community Centre, 609 Mackay Street.
Penny Parsons, the Cancer Society liaison nurse, attends.
We are continually on the lookout for volunteers who can be called on to help with our work.

Give the Gift of Herbs

Herbalist Sheryll Fitzpatrick has 30 years of knowledge and experience of the healing gifts of herbs. She has created a place to share this with like-minded people on her much loved property with her husband Bruce and their companion animals in the Omahu Valley - the Valley of Healing - near Puriri Thames on the Coromandel Peninsula.
In her herbal studio workshop, Sheryll will teach you hands-on how to recognise and use the herbs and medicinal plants all around us in our gardens, roadsides and native bush.
In her medicinal workshops, you will learn to make vegan soaps, natural skincare and natural products for animals.
Sheryll also teaches cheese making and soap making. Pink Geranium workshops are an ideal retreat for the day, or for a relaxing 'back to nature' experience for your group or team.

The Program of Growth to Maturity

GROW is a uniquely structured community health movement.
Its Program of Personal Growth, Group Method and Caring and Sharing Community have all been developed from the findings of former mental health sufferers in the course of rebuilding their lives after mental breakdown.

The groups were, in fact, first known as Recovery Groups. This name was subsequently changed to GROW in order to meet the groups’ services in prevention as well as in rehabilitation, and even more broadly for a popular school of life and leadership for mental health.

GROW is anonymous, non-denominational and open to all. Its groups are run by their own members, sometimes with the friendly co-operation of a doctor, social worker, minister of religion or any mature member of the community.

GROW groups vary in size from 3 to 15 members. Meetings are held weekly, last 2 hours and are followed by refreshments. No membership fees or dues are charged. Contributions at the end of group meetings are strictly voluntary.

No introductions are needed. Just come along. 
For more information, contact Sandy 021 049 1360
