Taking its cue from a vigorously growing interest in healthy living practices that go beyond traditional medicine, the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department will debut its first Holistic Health Fair on Saturday, May 19 from 8 a.m. – noon at the Ocean Pines Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines.
The idea for the free event, which is open to the public, was conceived by Brittany Jarman, a program supervisor with the department. It will feature local businesses that focus on holistic health practices for whole-self wellness.
“I wanted the community to know about all of the different approaches to health care and healthy living that are not held in a doctor’s office,” Jarman said. “Holistic health is booming but there are still so many people who do not know about the benefits of a holistic health approach.”
Event-goers will be introduced to a variety of holistic health topics such as natural products, life coaching and floatation therapy. Vendors include Ocean Elements Salt Spa & Float Center, Lighthouse Acupuncture, Positive Energy, The Personal Wellness Center, Oasis Healing Center, Seas the Day OC, Essential Oils and more.
Jarman is excited about spotlighting this growing sector of the local business community. “There are so many local small businesses that the community should know and learn about that could help with their daily living,” she said.
Businesses interested in participating in the event should contact Jarman at 410-641-7052 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Vendor spaces are $20.
