You’ll find all that and more at the Fox Valley Holistic Health Celebration Sunday, Sept. 29, outside at Soup to Nuts Alternative Grocery, 716 W. State St., Geneva. The event is free and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., featuring nearly 80 area exhibitors offering a wide variety of holistic, organic and
environmentally safe products and services.
At the Fox Valley Holistic Health Celebration, visitors will find information about aromatherapy and essential oils, holistic parenting, the slow food movement, reiki and massage, green cleaning, yoga and martial arts, and holistic medicine.
There will be free raffles and give-aways, including stylish tote bags stuffed with coupons, samples and offers for the first 1,200 visitors.
Many new exhibitors have joined the event, including Inspired Quilts; South Dakota Crystals; Autumn Green Animal Hospital; reflexologists; Gungfu Fitness Center; Intention Beads; Nia and Movement Alchemy; and Bhakti Balls, a vegan food option.
The event also includes an expanded kids' area with hula hoops, games, crafts and activities.
Now in its fifth year, the event has grown, but its mission remains unchanged: to provide the community with a variety of holistic health practitioners and services in one location.
"Our intention is to increase awareness of the holistic options to living a happy and healthy life, even in these chaotic times," said JR Carmany, founder of the holistic health fair and owner of Soup to Nuts.
It's also a free opportunity for visitors to "meet and learn from the many talented healers and providers in our local community," she added.
Free and discounted services such as ionizing footbaths, reflexology, chair massage, Thai massage, reiki and animal totem readings are a great way for visitors to get a hands-on experience at the health fair, Carmany said.
The event starts at 10 a.m. with a Buddhist blessing and wraps up with live music by local bluegrass band Pritchard Harter.
