The 2017 Health Connection will be held at Brentwood Village, Kincumber, on Saturday, June 17.
The Health Connection was launched in June 2014 as a free family well-being event, with entertainment and activities for all ages, and proudly returns for its fourth year.
Free all day activities for the children will include eco inspired arts and crafts workshops from Art Tank, Taronga Zoo Reptiles Display, Free Face Painting, a Magician, The Big Yellow Bus Kids Gym, Jumping Castle and Party Chameleon Circus Games, whilst the live music, yummy fresh food, soups, cakes, juices and lifestyle talks can be enjoyed by all.
This year will feature more interactive health checks for the whole family including diabetes testings, hearing checks, spinal checks and podiatry checks in a festive ambience, but there will also be quiet spaces where patrons may take the opportunity to sample a natural therapies treatment, live yoga, meditation or movement class.
“It is always a great atmosphere,” Ms Colette Baron, manager of the Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre, said.
“It’s a beautiful venue with superb gardens and a fabulous auditorium that can accommodate the whole event in the case of rain, so it’s an all-weather, as well as an all-ages event.”
Local wellness practitioners will present reflexology, massage, naturopathy, sound therapies, food solutions, orthopaedics, herbalism, organic skincare, yoga, hemp information, food talks and meditation, and sound healings for patrons to try, or perhaps simply to chat and discover more about them.
This is a great opportunity for the local community, families, residents, local businesses and health practitioners to attend the event again and be interactively involved in this family wellness event with an expected 3,000 plus people attending.
