Anyone looking to empower their mind, body and spirit will enjoy the Holistic Health and Healing Expo—the largest in the Cleveland area—on Saturday and Sunday, October 19 and 20.

Over two days, the annual event will bring holistic practitioners on a national and local level, as well as more than 100 curated vendors, dozens of lectures, workshops, healing sessions and fabulous shopping opportunities, to the Soccer Sportsplex in North Olmsted.

“One of our slogans is ‘Psychics to physicians and most everything in between,’” says founder and spiritual healer Hank Setala.

“We are a hybrid show experience with a little something for everyone, including all things metaphysical and scientific. This is a showcase for wellness centers, yoga, meditation and integrative medicine, too. You’ll find group gallery readings with mediums, meditation sessions, dream interpreters and even ionic foot spa detox treatments.”

People can shop from an eclectic mix of vendors’ booths ranging from vitamins and supplements to spiritual jewelry, singing bowls, tuning forks, musical instruments, crystals and geode specimens, rain barrels for water conservation, cosmetics, CBD oils, aromatherapy oils and even a farmers’ market table.

“Thanks to Melissa Wiles, owner of Goddess Elite in North Olmsted, who coordinates all the vendors, some of whom come from around the country to do our Expo,” he says.

“As a leader in the field of bio intrinsic resonant energy, Edd helps others heal themselves through energy movement,” says Hank.

“He can manipulate energy fields. We’re fortunate to have Edd stay in Cleveland after the Expo for a one-day, in-depth workshop on Saturday, October 26, as well as private sessions that week.”
