A group of Liverpool wellness practitioners are coming together to hold a day-long wellness event this autumn.

On Friday, October 7, the first Wellness In The City event will be held at The Spine in Paddington Village. The building, which is home to the Royal College of Physicians, was itself designed with wellness in mind.

It was built to the so-called WELL Standard which focuses on creating an environment around “air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind”.

Clare Ellis, organiser of Wellness In The City, said the event aims to educate and raise awareness of all the options in the Merseyside wellness arena. Clare is a property entrepreneur and is also Liverpool Facilitator for national group Pink Link Ladies Networking.

She explained: “My colleagues and I had this vision during the height of the pandemic of bringing together the full range of wellness options in the Liverpool region under one roof. We’ll be working with providers across the industry, hosting a day-long event at The Spine, educating, inspiring and raising awareness.

“We strongly believe there is a personal and corporate responsibility to drive sickness levels downwards in Liverpool city region. And we know we are well placed to make an impactful start on that.

“I’ve already spoken with numerous companies and organisations about collaborating, along with many of the innovative practitioners who are looking to participate in the event.”

Clare’s partners in the initiative include Margaret Bell, a gut health expert, Claire Morton, a wellbeing specialist, and event management professional Rachel Riches.

Margaret added: “A lot of people I work with are looking for hope, inspiration, knowledge and awareness around their health. This day-long initiative will give people some more control over their well-being.

“It will also inspire them, help them to connect and create trustworthy links across all the advice being given by experts taking part in the event.”

Liverpool wellbeing advocate and PR professional, Joel Jelen, is part of the marketing team behind the event.

He also said: “I know the organisers both personally and professionally and they are driven to make this work. No doubt, many benefits will be created for future events in 2023 to build or what will be achieved in October.”
