The Mayor, Councillor Uel Mackin, is keen for people to attend the event and said: “Over two days a wide range of experts and service providers will be under one roof to help you live a healthier lifestyle. The Council is pleased to be hosting the event and it is a great opportunity to explore tools and techniques that are available to benefit your health and wellbeing.”
Speaking at the launch of the fair, Chairman of the Council’s Strategic Community Planning Partnership, Alderman William Leathem said: “I fully understand how difficult it can be to deal with poor health as I have lived with Fibromyalgia and ME for a number of years now, however, I also understand that there are non-medical routes available for healing that really do help. The fair is a great way to get a feel for what is available and what is suitable for you. I am confident that no matter what age or what challenge you face you will find something at our event. Please take some time over the two days to visit and chat to the available experts. This could be the fresh start you have been looking for.”
Rita McAlonan from Child & Adult Therapeutic Services discusses the range of services that will be available at the Fair: “The Island Hall at Lagan Valley Island will be full of Therapists and experts showcasing the most up-to-date technology and practical advice for your health and wellbeing. We are delighted to have guest speakers such as Ralph McCutcheon who has been deeply involved with the progress of Complementary Medicine over the last forty years, along with Therapists from across Northern Ireland who will focus on issues such as dealing with anxiety, loving the body you are in and feeling good through hypnotherapy.
