Natural Awakenings Washington DC Metro

Your Invitation to the Healthy Living Expo in Fairfax

Jul 29, 2016 10:57PM
In these health-conscious times, most people have at least one item that pertains to their health that they need help or encouragement with. Likewise, most people find it challenging to fit into their busy schedules the time to do research to figure out who is the best medical practitioner to consult, call to set an appointment (which, for some practices, can be weeks away) and then take time off from work to attend the appointment. At the Healthy Living Expo, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 17, held at Unity of Fairfax, in Oakton, all attendees will have the chance to speak and learn from local health-related professionals who are ready to answer questions, give guidance and present opportunities to make a positive difference. Everyone is invited to join.

For this expo, Natural Awakenings’ first event to be held in northern Virginia, we have teamed up with a new wonderful partner, Unity of Fairfax. For several years, this center for spiritual and physical healing has hosted a similar event and has helped many attendees. Like previous Natural Awakenings Healthy Living Days and Expos, there will be 40 (or more) exhibitors, providing information and samples on a range of topics related to natural health and healing. There will be nutritious and organic food to eat (and sample) as well as the opportunity to have a massage or reiki session.

Throughout the course of the day, speakers will offer 30-minute talks or demos on a range of topics related to healthy cooking and eating, vitality and fitness, managing stress and weight-loss as well as natural treatments for common conditions (which can keep you off medications). In the coming weeks, a list of talks and speakers will be available on the event website.

Most importantly, this will be a day when the growing community of wellness-seekers can come together to meet one another, share their interest and support for those who are helping to make the world a bit healthier, greener and safer for all. There are still opportunities for exhibitors and speakers to join the expo, with information to be found on the event website, as well.

Cost: $10 (early purchase online, before September 1)/$15. Location: Unity of Fairfax, 2854 Hunter Mill Rd., Oakton. To purchase ticket, learn how to exhibit or speak or to get more information, visit
