Free Workshops at Picky Wellbeing Clinic Open Day

Monday, November 29, 2021


The Pickaquoy Centre will hold an official opening day of the Picky Wellbeing Clinic following a recent rebrand of the service.

Previously the area was known as Wellness & Beauty.

The aim of the Wellbeing Clinic is to provide rehabilitation, pain relief and relaxation, and Picky are now collaborating with Orkney’s only Osteopath, as well as a new sports therapist and a new massage therapist.

The Picky Wellbeing Clinic Open Day, held next Sunday (5 December), will give visitors the chance to meet all five therapists, learn about what services are available and the chance to take part in a number of free workshops.

Visitors who book appointments on the day can receive a 10% discount (selected therapists only) and there will be free refreshments available such as hot drinks and mince pies.

Full details of the open day are below:

  • Meet the Therapists: 1100 – 1200
  • Chair Massage Sessions (15 min session): 1230 – 1400

Laura Olsen, Customer Engagement Officer at Picky, said: “We’ve invested into this service as we identified it as an area of need within our community. We would like to see a more integrated approach within the Centre that gives people an opportunity to get professional advice, and then have a longer-term preventative plan through utilising the services available. This could be anything from a personalised gym programme to aqua walking – whatever activity would add a benefit to that individual’s long-term recovery and wellbeing.

“We are delighted with all of the therapists that are now taking appointments out of the clinic. Their combined experience and enthusiasm is brilliant, and we look forward to seeing the service develop.”
