- Matthew Berger, CEO
The idea was first discussed between two friends David and Matthew, the conversation was around sleep.. or to be more precise the lack of it! The more we talked about our disrupted sleep and how stress and anxiety impacted our lives the more determined we became to do something about it. From this initial chat TheaWellbeing was born, a company focused on the wellness sector.
We had the seed of an idea but needed to expand the team. Our first port of call was product design... it just so happened that David had a 25 year friendship with Graham and Martin the managing partners of a world leading product design company Therefore Design. One meeting later Therefore was on board and the first product was underway.
Now all we needed was a specialist in the oversight of remote manufacture of consumer electronics, someone who had years of experience of selecting the best and most appropriate producers to work with. We were delighted when Steve from MBX International with offices in London and Hong Kong and over 30 years experience agreed to join our team.
Choosing a name for a company that reflected our core values was never going to be easy but after much discussion we decided to take inspiration from the Greek goddess of rest and relaxation - Pasithea.
Taking inspiration from the past to build a business for the modern world kind of felt right to us...
We believe that the best solutions are often the simplest.
Each product journey starts with the user and looking at the human side of mental stresses. Every product we create is designed to provide a solution to a particular issue.
For a product to pass the wellbeing test it must be:
This is at the core of our ethos, being wellness driven is especially important to us. By having a greater understanding of what is good for us can only put us on a better road to happiness.
In a world that is running 24/7 and our addiction to technology has become the ‘norm’we must give ourselves time to switch off and make sure we find some inner peace to reset.
That goes without saying, with our in-house designers looking after the entire process, all products have thought, design and practicality in everything we originate and manufacture.
Everything we use is getting more complicated, one of our most important saying is ‘can everyone work it '..if the answer is yes then we can go to next stage of development.
Before we embark on any new ideas, as part of our design process we strip back any potential product and make sure anything we produce has the WOW factor.
