Marquette’s Holistic Health Fair at Northern Michigan University’s Northern Center was a one-of-a-kind event that took place on Saturday. The fair provided the community with an opportunity to explore various stress-relieving activities and services related to health and wellbeing. With 37 vendors offering massage, energy work, henna body art, crystals, soaps and essential oils, attendees had plenty of options to choose from.
The event was organized by Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols who noted that this fair was a reboot of a previous holistic health fair that had been a staple in the Marquette community for 20 years. This year marked the first of its kind, bringing new energy and offerings to the community. The aim was to pay homage to the old fair while putting a fresh spin on it.
Attendees also had the chance to interact with a therapy dog that helped calm them and provided a soothing presence at the event. Despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event’s organizers were able to bring this new iteration of the fair to life, offering attendees a diverse and rejuvenating experience. Overall, the Marquette Holistic Health Fair was an excellent way for the community to focus on their holistic health and wellbeing.
