For those of you who try to avoid taking conventional medicines, or those without health-insurance access to such, alternative healing techniques can be valuable tools for reducing stress and staying healthy. Learn about herbology, healthy aging, massage, natural eyesight improvement and other therapies at this Sunday’s Healing Arts Festival. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., consult healers, listen to lectures and gather supplies for a calm and healthy winter. The festival is located at the Red Lion Hotel, 1401 Arden Way. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and teens, and free for children under 12. Eat fresh foods, get plenty of rest and visit www.healingartsfestival.com for more information.
