Dr Lindsay Best says the expo will emphasise complementary care.
Heightened awareness of health issues following the Covid-19 lockdown period has prompted a Warkworth chiropractor to organise a Health and Wellness Expo.
Chiropractor Dr Lindsay Best says a lot of people could not see a doctor during lockdown and had to content themselves with consultations over the phone.
This, in turn, has led people to think more carefully about taking care of the own health. Dr Best says she saw the expo as the perfect way to showcase what kinds of treatments are out there.
“It’s about opening people’s eyes to a whole other world,” she says.
Health therapies to be featured include chiropractic, acupuncture, physiotherapy, homeopathy, massage, naturopathy, oncology, iridology, hypnotherapy, yoga and pilates.
Dr Best says many of the therapies constitute “complementary care” noting they can enhance each other and complement the treatment offered by a regular doctor.
“For example, massage and acupuncture can complement chiropractic treatment quite nicely,” she says.
So far, more than 30 exhibitors are lined up to take part in the exhibition, which will take place in the Warkworth Town Hall on Sunday, August 23 from 1.30pm.
