Ecomumma founder Charmaine Newmark considers Camden is destined to become the "healing mecca" of Sydney and is doing her best to help bring that vision about.
The Elderslie naturopath has organised the inaugural Camden Wellness Expo being held at Camden Civic Centre tomorrow from 9am to 2pm and is confident the event will attract thousands of visitors.
Dozens of local "wellness" practitioners are supporting the expo, with visitors welcome to participate in yoga and pilates classes, join in group workshops or attend any of a large number of wellness seminars.
"We have researched and handpicked over 40 practitioners who are committed to sharing the wellness message," Ms Newmark said.
"Connect with a range of naturopaths, nutritionists, kinesiologists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, psychologists, counsellors, life coaches, energy healers, aromatherapists, personal trainers and yoga teachers."
Ms Newmark said Camden was fortunate to be home to a plethora of highly qualified and respected "wellness" practitioners.
"A large group of Australia's leading practitioners live in and have their businesses in Camden," she said.
"There is no need to leave Camden to find this type of help. Everything is right here."
Ms Newark said Camden had the potential to become an Australian "healing mecca" similar to the Bryon hinterlands, the hills of the Sunshine Coast and the ancient rainforests of Tassie.
"It's our vision for Camden to become an epicentre for healing for people who are lost and looking for hope," she said.
"There is something special about Camden," she said.
"It has a wonderful, sleepy energy that invigorates us and engulfs us."
