On Saturday, the Northern Michigan University’s Northern Center hosted the Marquette Holistic Health Fair, a unique event that provided the community with an opportunity to explore stress-relieving activities. With 37 vendors offering services such as massage, energy work, and henna body art, attendees had plenty of options to choose from.
This fair was a reboot of a previous holistic health fair that had been a staple in the Marquette community for 20 years. Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols explained that this year’s event aimed to pay homage to the old fair while putting a fresh spin on it. The renewed focus on holistic health brought new energy and offerings to the community.
In addition to services, attendees had the opportunity to purchase products like crystals, soaps, and essential oils. There was even a therapy dog present to help calm attendees and provide a soothing presence at the event.
Despite challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers were able to bring this new iteration of the fair to life, offering attendees a diverse and rejuvenating experience. The Marquette Holistic Health Fair brought renewed attention to holistic health in the community, providing valuable resources for relaxation and well-being.
