Fairview Park explore holistic health

November 10, 2013 by  

Residents of Fairview Park and other nearby communities recently had an opportunity to explore alternatives to traditional medicine and some more exotic offerings at the Holistic Health and Healing Expo in North Olmsted, approximately four miles from Fairview Park.

The expo took place at the Soccer Sportsplex on October 19 and 20, with hundreds of people braving rainy weather to investigate the vendors and specialists available to share their expertise.

Vendors offered crystals, statuary, aromatherapy, and similar items dealing with metaphysical interests. Laurel Foldi and Thomas Johnston, both of Fairview Park, told Cleveland.com that they went to the expo to take part in a drum circle to help generate positive energy. They also visited booths like The Healing Den, where customers could try a BioMat to enjoy a “molecular level massage”; and White Hawk Jewelry, which featured stones to promote growth, prosperity, healing, and tranquility.

Perhaps the most intriguing personality at the expo was Mary Ann Winkowski, whose life is the basis for the hit TV series ‘The Ghost Whisperer’. Winkowski gave a presentation Saturday afternoon, talking about her experiences with ghosts, as well as discussing dreams.

The expo was sponsored by Goddess Elite of North Olmstead, which gave part of the proceeds to Wigs for Kids, a non-profit organization that provides wigs free of charge for children undergoing chemotherapy, or who have other medical conditions resulting in hair loss.

The next expo is scheduled for October 2014, and organizers could work with a postcard printing company to develop an item to mail next summer as a reminder to residents to put the event on their schedule.
