The first ever Holistic Health Expo took place Saturday.

Holistic healing is any kind of wellness activity that helps restore balance to the body. Accupuncture, massage therapy, and nutrition services were all featured.

Organizers said holistic health is the perfect compliment to the more traditional model of western medicine.

“The medical model is based on trauma and tragedy. And so shifting the focus a little bit more towards the preventative side and taking care of your body so that you don’t get sick in the first place,” said Rebecca Herrick.

Herrick added holistic healing is something people can practice by themselves to support both mental and physical health. She said many of the practices on display at the expo have been used for hundreds of years.
