Previous Fairs

Three in-person and one online Sonoma Strong Healing Fairs have been held to assist our communities with recovery from emergency situations and other traumas and to provide education on alternative healing methods. Treatments such as massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, B-12 shots, energy healing, readings, coaching and more have been offered at the in-person healing fairs.

2017 Sonoma Strong Healing Fair
On December 9, 2017, the first Sonoma Strong Healing Fair was held to assist Sonoma County and the surrounding areas with recovery from the October 2017 wildfires and other traumas. The healing fair was held at the City of Santa Rosa Steele Lane Community Center. About 450 people, including about 45 Practitioners and Doctors participated in the 2017 healing fair.

What a marvelous fair, far exceeded my expectations. It was wonderful to see and feel the focus, concentration, care and enthusiasm from the practitioners…and the results and appreciation from those who received treatment and care. The organizers were wonderful, putting so much time, effort, heart and soul into making Sonoma Strong Healing Fair happen. And there was a lovely spirit from the dozens of people who assisted.

 For me personally, I found it exhilarating, fun and rewarding to work with so many people who arrived with many varying situations and needs. To discover again and more deeply, the ability to be present and let myself find what worked, so each of my clients could benefit and enjoy. I am deeply grateful to be able to be a part of SSHF. Thank you all.
