Menopause Awareness Day - let's talk about it

Menopause Awareness Day - a day dedicated to sharing knowledge and wisdom in a supportive environment.

An interactive event filled with information to help you better understand your body and mind as it goes through the natural changes of menopause. It doesn't matter at what stage of the menopause you would like to know about (pre, peri, post) we have the experts to share their knowledge and wisdom with you.

We all know about night sweats, hot flushes and mood swings, but did you know there are over 34 other symptoms? Menopause - let's talk about it. Commit time to fully understanding this stage of being a woman and understanding that each one of us is an individual and will experience this part of our life's journey in a unique way. Let's bust through the myths together - the menopause should no longer be a taboo subject that we should be fearful about, but a stage of life that allows us to grow into women of wisdom.

Hear from conventional medical and complementary health practitioners in a safe environment which provides the opportunity to talk, listen and be heard. Ask everything you ever wanted to know.

Speakers to include Dr Saadia Meyer - Gynaecologist and Menopause Specialist, Dr Jane Spurgeon MRCGP, Fiona Reid - women's health and sports physiotherapist, Minna Wood - Nutritional therapist and NLP coach, Sarah Swan - Yoga Therapist, and a representative from YES organic intimate moisturising products. We will also have a representative from the Royal Osteoporosis Society. Talk with therapists offering a range of alternative treatment approaches.

There will also be an opportunity to browse stands to pick up further information and chat with well-qualified, experienced practitioners from both conventional and complementary health backgrounds.

The ticket price includes a light buffet lunch and drinks.

This is a nonprofit event. The organisers are three local women who have an interest in women's health: Katherine Geddes - Chartered Physiotherapist BSc (Hons) MCSP HCPC Reg, Tina Macnaughton BSc (Hons) MA LicAC MBAcC and Rachael Neville.
