Find a happier you at the Mind, Body & Spirit Expo
In today's world many of us are time poor, stressed or run off our feet. Occasionally we need to make the time to stop, put our feet and have some quality "me" time. Solutions to many of today's maladies, whether it be relaxation, exploring the inner self or a tried and tested healing remedy, can be found at the Redlands Body Mind and Spirit Expo.
Natural therapists from the local area will gather together at the bushland setting of the Redlands Healing Centre, to provide a one-stop-shop where you can indulge in a range of therapies designed to clear the head and go into the next week feeling refreshed.
For those who are new to these remedies, take the time to read through the following list of therapies which will be on display on the day. Decide for yourself whether their benefits could be beneficial for you.
Naturopaths use a range of herbal medicines, nutrition, homeopathy or ancient Chinese and Medical system in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human disorders. Practitioners study registered courses and should be registered with an appropriate organisation.
Reiki is a form of therapy aiming to increase energy levels, relaxation and well-being through non-invasive gentle touch, while other more traditional massage therapies will improve well-being through their treatment. Finch therapists will be able to assist with chronic pain through soft-tissue manipulation, while cranio-scaral therapy is available for the correction of structural imbalances in the human body. This therapy allows, through gentle touch, the innate intelligence to go where it needs to go to restore impeded circulation and alleviate any nerve impingement. It encourages the body's own healing power to travel to dysfunctional cells to heal themselves.
Nutrition and raw food specialists will also be available to help with eating disorders and balanced diets, while matters of the mind and soul can be discussed with a range of angel readers, psychics and astrologists.
Practitioners of bowen therapy, kinesiology, aromatherapy, art therapy and healing with crystals will also be on hand to help you find a healthier you. In addition, there will be displays of Tai Chi, Meditation and Yoga. Presenters on the Earth Stage will include the Jaran Aboriginal dancers, Haitch and Pachamama, OZ Fit, a fashion parade by Lorna Jane, as well as guest speakers on a variety of topics.
This event from 9am until 2pm on the 8th September will be an opportunity to see all of these healing arts in the one venue, a chance for you to compare their virtues and treat yourself to some positive energy. Entry to the Redlands Healing Centre is by gold coin donation.
