South- West Wellness Festival 2018
The South West Wellness Expo of 2017 will be the wellness event of the year. To be held on Sunday the 28th October 2018 at the Busselton Precinct on Queen Street, the day will be comprised of health practitioner stalls, interactive workshops, TED-style talks by health professionals and community members, deliciously healthy food and entertainment for the kids.
The South West Wellness Festival is the love child of the Holistic Health Network Inc – a group of over 100 holistic health practitioners committed to providing patient-centred, holistic health care to their local community.
What to expect:
- Health practitioner stalls giving community members a chance to meet and greet practitioners to discuss their services they provide
- Interactive workshops including yoga, dance, art, and mindfulness
- TED- style talks by health practitioners and community members in a range of health and wellness topics
Local schools have also been invited to participate in a colouring-in competition as part of the Expo. Prizes will be awarded to 3 students from each age group. We are very excited to announce that our very own South West surfing legend Taj Burrow will be presenting prizes to the winning artists.
The practitioners who have been involved in the planning of this event include Dr Sarah Moore, GP Obstetrician; Joanne Edmond, Psychologist; Lana Storm, Kinesiologist; Tara Nelson, Naturopath; Tara Hawken, Health Coach; Amy Garrett, Birth Choices; Tess Doig, Naturopath.
A number of local businesses have provided generous sponsorship for the Festival, they can be viewed here
