I have been a bit bored with my workouts for some time now, so I needed to find something to “spice things up” a bit. My search for this new option lead me to Aerial Dance Pole Exercise in Appleton. After meeting with Paula Brusky, the owner and lead instructor,…
A trusted colleague of mine said, “You should try it, it was amazing!” “It” was an intuitive session with Michaela Torcaso, owner of whitedoor, llc (formerly known as TIBIA IntuAction Institute). I had no idea what to expect, so I went with an open mind. The moment I walked into…
Over a year ago, I decided to take over my health care. I had been seeing doctors who had not been able to help me. After many tests were done over the course of 10 years, and two surgeries later, I decided I needed to get to the bottom of…
For a few years, I have experienced some occasional, but severe, anxiety. After a family member of mine came very close to losing her life, the anxiety reared its ugly head again. But I believe that some things happen for a reason, and I was lucky enough during that dark…
On a beautiful fall day with color at peak, I made a trip to one of my favorite getaways. New Glarus is an historic town rich in Swiss heritage located 30 miles southwest of Madison. As I walked around, I ventured into Art & Soul Tattoo and Gallery, which is…
As each year passes, I seem to notice more fine lines or wrinkles. If you had talked to me five years ago, the topic wouldn’t have even come up. Now, though, it’s a different story! I decided about two years ago that I was getting older looking. A sad fact,…
Summer 2012 was one for the record books: hot, humid and dry. It took everything we could do to stay cool, and that included wearing our loosest clothing. Finally we had a break in the heat and it was cool enough at night to put on a pair of jeans.…
I was in a car accident over five years ago, which left me with daily headaches and, at times, severe neck pain. I went to my doctor, who started me out on medications. They helped somewhat, but the pain and headaches just wouldn’t go away, and it was starting to…
I have heard about acupuncture and the amazing health benefits many have experienced with it, and I must admit, I was always curious and a bit scared. Not being a big fan of needles, the apprehension of trying this to help with my asthma issues got to me. Well, I…
Have you ever taken a leap of faith and tried something that you knew nothing about? Well, I did when I went to Heidi’s Healing House for an energy healing session to help relieve my migraines. When I spoke with Heidi beforehand, she told me to dress comfortably (I wore…
Having never been a fan of feet or toes, I must admit that the idea of Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® (Ashiatsu) was a bit of a stretch for me; however, after talking to Sue Noffke of Intuitive Touch and hearing the benefits of getting a massage “by foot,” I decided…
I am always comforted when I see Kari Uselman at Wellness Essentials. She is a very warm and caring person with such a calming and kind energy that you cannot help but feel better just being around her. Her office is just as serene, with amazing healing stones, Electro Magnetic…
Happily, I now enjoy walking into my home without getting a hideous feeling looking at my countertops! Since buying our home in 2009, we have made many updates and by far the best decision we made was going with Darboy Stone & Brick for our kitchen and bathroom countertops. It…
I had been tired, having difficulty concentrating, having headaches more often, not sleeping well and, worse yet; gaining weight. My weight gain was gradual but definitely noticeable even though I thought I was eating healthy. After seeing many doctors to no avail, I was frustrated with not having answers about…
