We have some amazing workshop/talk hosts. There are 7 different workshops to choose from, it is important to say that some of the sessions take the form of an educational talk as opposed to something fully interactive. The subject matters cover either Nutrition, Fitness and/or Wellbeing. Each session will vary in length. They range from 30mins to 75mins.

What is Functional Medicine?

Laurens Maas - The maas clinic

Laurens Maas B.Sc. Ost.(UK) DI Hom. (UK) is a registered Osteopath, Homeopath, three times international author and Functional Medicine Practitioner with over twenty years of clinical experience. 

Functional Diagnostic Medicine is by no means a new concept; the origins date back to Hippocrates and his famous quote “Let food be thy medicine …” It is a scientific, yet totally natural, way to achieve and maintain optimum health. Precise, non-invasive, laboratory testing uncovers the root cause of the problem, assesses symptoms, dysfunctions and imbalances and treats these using diet, nutritional supplements, sleep patterns and lifestyle changes, including stress reduction. Holistically treating the cause and not the symptoms.

Have you ever been told that a specific exercise is excellent for the core but don't really know why? This talk will demystify the concept of the 'core' and describe how it works. Join Trish to see if you can find yours and apply it every day for better posture, ease of breathing and a balanced body!
