The feet are the mirror of the body – there are reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all glands, organs and bodily parts. Often referred to as a science, reflexology was used 5,000 years ago in both Egypt and China.

In this modern age, Reflexology is a great tool to release stress , clean impurities and toxins, improve nerve and blood supply, and balance body functions.

In this hands-on reflexology demo, participants will have the opportunity to pair up and get a taste of giving and receiving reflexology. Sidonie Bouchet will share with you techniques you can take back home to your family and friends.

Let’s not even talk about the chemicals at most of toothpaste available in the market….

All of them come in that metal or plastic tube, the plastic top and with  a package!! Therefore, we do believe that make your own toothpaste is not just good for your pocket, but health and environment.

Making your own body care products save not just your money, but your health – with a great sense of self- sufficiency.

Passionate about natural body care products since the 70’s, Ilana has developed along the years a small range of simple and effective natural body care products.

Bring your toothbrush for a full experience!

No time to do your own?

You can order her tooth powder concoction and other natural products – such the famous Night Cream directly:



with Dolina Somerville
(BHSc) Licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner


  • Worldwide, one in three people suffer from the pain of arthritis.
  • Western Medicine treatments are generally limited to drugs or surgery.
  • Many people feel that they are victims of their condition.
  • Comments such as “I have bone-on-bone and nothing can be done except surgery” are commonplace.

However, there is an alternative approach to the treatment of arthritis, which may involve between one and five of the arms of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

  • Acupuncture or self-acupressure.
  • Chinese Herbal Medicine
  • Tui Na (Traditional Chinese Medicine Remedial Massage)
  • Chinese Dietary Therapy
  • Chinese Exercise Therapy (Qi Gong, Tai Chi etc.)

Dolina’s decision to study Chinese Medicine occurred after successful treatments for her own chronic pain.

After suffering several accidents, she developed painful arthritis in the neck, hip and knee. In severe pain, taking strong painkillers and contemplating surgery she turned to acupuncture for relief. The rest is history.

Today, she has never had the surgeries and remains pain and drug free.

A large part of her focus these days is to promote the health benefits of Chinese Medicine.

Please join this talk to hear how TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) can help with the pain of Arthritis.

Dolina is a Nationally Registered TCM practitioner. She is qualified in Acupuncture, Chinese Remedial Massage and Cosmetic Acupuncture. Part of her training was carried out at the Guangxi Traditional Chinese Medical University in PR China.

In addition to her practice in Maleny, Dolina also works at an aged Care Facility in Brisbane.

Her voluntary work includes the Woodford Folk Festival and a Crisis Centre in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
