Wellbeing Day

ALL the hard work paid off recently when the Welwyn Hatfield Complementary Practitioners' Group held a day of health and wellbeing to celebrate the start of spring.

Twenty-nine stall holders took part in an exhibition which brought together talks, demonstrations, taster treatments, trade stands and free consultations.

Exhibits ranged from palm reading, hand-made glass jewellery to natural organic cosmetics and healthy cakes.

There was a range of taster treatments on offer including reflexology, healing, spinal checks, acupressure massage, manual lymphatic drainage and Indian head massage.

Delegates could also discuss body composition, stress management, cranio-sacral treatment, gym membership and shiatsu treatments.

There were also talks and demonstrations covering a wide spectrum of activities such as McTimoney chiropractic, Biodanza, the Shaw swimming method and hypnotherapy and preventing stress.

Nearly 100 visitors came to Campus West to take part, all of who entered a prize draw to win a range of free treatments.

The group, which was founded by medical herbalist Mary Barton in 2001, holds meetings on the second Wednesday of every month, except August, at 7.30pm at St Bonaventure's Church Hall, Parkway, WGC.

The group holds a variety of talks from members and outside speakers, which recently included Emotional Freedom Technique, nutrition, Integrated Health (by a practising GP and homeopath) and vegetarianism.

Visitors are welcome to meetings for the small charge of £3.
