About our Healing Arts/Holistic Health Samplers and Fairs
The practitioners who participate in the Healing Arts/Holistic Health Samplers are seasoned professionals with extensive training who use the Samplers to promote and educate the public about holistic healing and alternative therapies. The samplers sometimes include free workshops/lectures.
The main reason for the samplers/fairs is to give the public an opportunity to experience alternative methods of healing in a safe environment without spending too much money. In this way they can decide if certain methods and/or practitioners are appropriate for them. Another reason is to help people receive alternative healing treatments who are unable to afford regular sessions at the moment. We do them as a clinic, so to speak. Many people may not be able to afford $60 - $100 an hour for treatments, but most can afford $10 for 20 minutes of healing work. They can also use more than one modality if necessary and spend more than 20 minutes if agreed upon with the practitioner. Some modalities require more time to be effective.
BHA samplers/fairs are also used by practitioners to network; to trade in order to receive healing for ourselves, and to experience the work of others in order to build a referral base. These events also give beginners an opportunity to work with the public in a relaxed but structured atmosphere.
Bottom Line - The most important part of our health fairs is in giving everyone an opportunity to use/experience holistic healing.
