Northern Michigan University’s Northern Center played host to the Marquette Holistic Health Fair on Saturday, offering attendees an array of stress-relieving activities and services. This unique event brought together vendors and presentations focusing on multiple aspects of health and well-being, providing the community with a diverse range of options for relaxation and rejuvenation.
With 37 vendors offering services such as massage, energy work, and henna body art, attendees had plenty to explore at this first-of-its-kind event. Event Coordinator Michelle Nichols 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. The goal was to pay homage to the old fair while putting a fresh spin on it.
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 the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers were able to bring this new iteration of the fair to life, offering attendees a diverse and rejuvenating experience.
