Chance to improve health and well-being

Evesham Editorial 1st May, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A GROUP of dedicated residents are to host a special event in Pershore which aims to raise awareness of the methods people can do to improve their health and well-being.

The practitioners, who are based in Pershore and surrounding areas, will be giving talks and demonstrations at Pershore Town Hall when the town hosts a Holistic Health and Well-Being Fayre on Saturday, May 10 between 1pm and 4pm.

A range of holistic techniques will be demonstrated on the day including Yoga, Angelic Reiki Healing, Emotional Freedom Techniques, holistic massage, labyrinth techniques and many more.

And should the fayre be a success, it could lead to further plans being made to bring a new holistic health centre to Pershore.

With GPs under mounting pressure on a daily basis, the organisers of the fayre say it is the perfect time to host an event of this kind.

Pershore practitioner Kim Marshall, who is organising the event, told the Observer she hoped the day will be a big success for the town.

“We hope many people will come along and it can be a big success as we feel there is demand for something like this in Pershore,” she said.

“This is the first time we’ve done something like this so we’re not sure how its going to go. If its a success we can do other events later in the year and look at bringing an holistic centre

“This is something I am passionate about it and the opportunity to help people out who maybe struggling or going through difficult times in their life is something which really appeals to me.

“But it is not just for people who may need help it is for everyone as we will demonstrate holistic techniques which can be used in everyday life.

“The event is all about giving information on what other methods are out there for people which can help them.

“Some people have to wait three or four months for an appointment to get to the next stage of their recovery. This can be a very frustrating time and we want to show people there are methods they can do themselves to improve their health.”
