Just U Health & Wellness Fair, Squamish – Miss Whis

The thing about alternative lifestyle, medicine and healing is that it’s a little confusing. The words hippy, crystals and zen-like meditative state come to mind, all with positive connotations of course, but it can all be a little perplexing to the uninitiated. Well, fret no more grasshoppers, for the wheelers and dealers of the calming world have banded together to bring you an all-encompassing journey for the mind, body and soul with the Just U Health Wellness Fair – December 1st, 10am-6pm and 2nd, 10am-4pm in the Sea to Sky hotel in Squamish, hosted by Gwen Sloan of  Just U Reflexology ~ 604-815-9640 or

The Fair is an amalgamation of inner and outer wellbeing and health products, services and lifestyles, alongside inspirational speakers from a realm of alternative perspectives, as well as music concerts, meditation and creative healing sessions. You do not have to have previously partaken in any aspects of these otherworldly experiences; or you could be one step away from eternal bliss, happiness and Japhy Ryder-like Zen-Buddhism existence; you will certainly be able to find a new aspect of health and wellness that inspires and speaks to you.

The Fair boasts 35 booths of amazing healing Products and healers promoting health and wellness and an incredible panel of speakers:

One of the inspirational speakers is a long-time Whistler and Sea-to-Sky local; a glowing soul and purveyor of inner and outer health, well-being and self-love. But don’t be fooled by her calming nature, positive demeanour and relaxed outlook, Amanda Rose Ziricino is a badass snowboard and sledder chick and a true embodiment of the inclusive and accepting health and wellness lifestyle.

Amanda Rose Ziricino

Not long after obtaining her degree in Early Childhood Education from Ryerson University in Ontario, Amanda’s love for Mother Nature, fresh mountain air, positive vibrations and a healthy active life style lead her to the Sea To Sky Corridor where she found the beauty and importance of building strong healthy relationships with yourself, family, friends and community. She says: “functioning together, these relationships create awareness and connectivity to our mind, body and soul.”

Amanda’s strength lies in the importance of sharing with others of all ages in one on one or in group sessions. She uses a variation of Alternative Healings and Initiative passion, courtesy of being an Early Childhood Educator, Reiki master, lover of mediation, body talk worker, reflexology and deeksha giver.  Her mantra: “May we always listen to our hearts ~ that little voice inside your head and follow our dreams while living ‘La Dolce Vita’, The Sweet Life, every day.”
