A leading platform for wellness inspiration.

Bloom is a health & wellness event that began in 2012 with an aim to educate and spread the key message of prevention. Much emphasis today is placed on ‘finding the cure’ rather than preventing illness in the first place. Lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, some cancers, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis, depression and obesity can all be prevented or even reversed through simple lifestyle changes.

According to the holistic medicine philosophy we all have an innate capacity to heal and achieve optimal health by having balance in life (physical, emotional, spiritual). Once we start restoring our health we also start restoring the health of the planet.

Bloom’s mission is to empower people to take charge of their health by sharing information on preventative measures so that we can make informed choices on what we eat, how we live and the products we use.

This includes:

  • Choosing safe products without the inclusion of synthetic chemicals, fillers and artificial ingredients.
  • Avoiding highly processed foods, getting back to basics and eating as close to nature as possible.
  • Reconnecting with nature and ourselves.
  • Being mindful and living the best life possible that respects ourselves, each other and the planet.

We aim to educate, inspire and empower our community, whether attendees are avid health nuts, at the beginning of their wellness journey or yet to be inspired, we aim to plant the seeds, share the goodness and make a difference to peoples’ lives and the planet.

Objectives:
– To educate and empower the community in health and lifestyle choices.
– To create a day for people to take time out for themselves and connect with others.
– To encourage community connections.
– To inspire attendees to place greater value on their health, their family’s health and the health of the planet.

What makes Bloom different from other wellness events?
Bloom welcomes businesses that endorse sustainable and toxic chemical free living. Our team of advisors have created a criteria to ensure that the values of prospective businesses align with those of Bloom. This ensures the integrity of the event, which is demonstrated by the high quality and standard of information presented on the day. This has been widely acknowledged by attendees and is what makes Bloom a stand out event.
