7 fun things to do at this year’s Health and Wellness Show!

THAWS returns to Tradex March 14 and 15

Want help with your nutrition plan? Battling chronic pain or other health issues? Working to reach your fitness goals? The Health and Wellness Show (THAWS) is the perfect place to speak with experts and find new inspiration!

THAWS returns to Tradex in Abbotsford March 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are 200 exhibitors to inspire you and help you reach your goals.

Check out vendors showcasing natural bath and body care products, earth-friendly cleaning options, healthy food ideas and other exciting items to help you lead a healthy life. You’ll also find a range of services including personalized eating plans, financial care, personal training, exercise classes, chiropractic care, naturopathic options and more!

“If you’re in a rut with your eating and exercise, we have professionals on-site to help you feel inspired and excited about making positive changes,” says Shara Mendoza, event co-ordinator. Guests can take advantage of a free nutritional consultation by stopping by the Holistic Health and Vitality booth with their questions.

“We encourage everyone to come try something new! Sometimes something simple like a new set of stretches, a healthy afternoon snack option, or a fun activity can energize you and add joy to your day,” she says. “The show even has free hair and makeup makeovers by Salon Picasso to help you try a new look while at the show.”

THAWS has something for everyone!
