Vendor Spotlight: Healing Intentions

"Your Intention is Creative Energy that can Heal & Create positive Changes..."

When something in your life is in transition, or you have heath issues that are not being fully understood or helped; If you’re facing many ideas and changes in personal or work relationships, it can feel over whelming. It’s at times like this that we can all use a wise one to hear us. Sandi is an Intuitive Life & Soul Coach who see's the coaching relationship as an alliance, a partnership, and a process of inquiry that empowers clients. She helps them to reconnect with their own inner wisdom, find their own answers, and rediscover those powerful moments of choice out of which lasting change grows. She uses her intuitive gifts to enhance this process.

Sandra says, “I believe we are all whole beings in many relationships. Every choice or thought we make affects every other aspect of our lives and health. Our work affects our relationships. Our relationships touch our spirituality. Our soul’s wellbeing affects our capacity to love, to have joy which, in turn, affects our work and so it goes, round and round. I coach the whole person. I believe you deserve the life you want”.

So... Who are you? What is important to you? What are your challenges? What gets in your way? Where do you want to go? How would you feel if your life were exactly the way you wanted it to be? When would you like to begin?

Sandra uses her Healing skills and knowledge of many energetic modalities as well as her own life experiences to help facilitate healing, relaxation, and to restore balance for the client. She is skilled at reading the blocks that can create imbalance in the bio-field or CHI, that can cause symptoms of tension, pain, and in some cases illness. With this understanding she facilitates and empowers the client's own ability to heal and create positive change.

Sandra describes her mission is to encourage, inspire and empower others to know their Truth, to hear the voice of their Soul, and to embrace the Best life possible.

Vendor Spotlight: NES Provision

Looking for higher energy levels? More optimism? More enthusiasm? More focus? More restful sleep? A better tolerance of stress?

Nutri-Energetics Systems (NES) is a revolutionary approach for evaluating and promoting holistic wellness. This approach is based on discoveries made by biophysics scientists over the past hundred years and in particular the work of Peter Fraser and Harry Massey. These scientists were motivated to find a comprehensive explanation to biological life and fill in the many holes of the conventional chemical model of the human being.

This partnership has resulted in an accurate map of the human body-field (HBF) by integrating research from many diverse fields of knowledge including, but not limited to, Chinese medicine, biology, quantum physics and technology. They have identified the HBF as a vital part in organizing a set of lifeless chemicals into a living organism and it does this through information transference. The human body-field is the master control system for the body and Fraser has determined what the ideal HBF is.

With advanced computer technology you will find out how your HBF compares to the ideal model. You will simply lay your hand on a small scanner connected to the computer and a total assessment will be made.

From that assessment, the system along with your practitioner, then determine a proper course of action to bring your body back to a better state of health. This occurs through the use of corrective drops called infoceuticals which contain trace minerals with specific information imprinted on them. These drops simulate the affected body system toward it’s optimal level of function and inherent healing ability.

Using revolutionary new technology, the Nutri-Energetics system offers a safe, quick, noninvasive and effective means of supporting a wide range of health issues. Many people whose health conditions have not been helped by other means have benefited from the NES system. People report regression of symptoms along with a heightened sense of wellness and vitality.

Visit our booth at Living Well to experience NES Provision first hand! We're looking forward to meeting everyone!

Vendor Spotlight: La Femme Jolie Boudoir Photography

Boudoir Photography.

One of two things usually come to someone’s mind when they hear those words. The first is “What on earth is THAT?”, or second “oh, I’m …too old/too heavy/not that kind of girl. etc”.

Well, ladies, let me tell you otherwise! We ALL have beauty that has perhaps, just been forgotten. It is buried beneath the endless “to do” list, kids, work, housework, etc, etc. It never stops! But…beneath it all, in each and every one of us, is a beautiful woman waiting to have her day in the spotlight, and THAT is what boudoir photography is all about. No matter your size, shape or age, it IS for you. It’s transforming and empowering. It’s about not only being beautiful, but FEELING beautiful again. It is a confidence booster and oh so good for the self esteem. I know because I am not only a boudoir photographer and see it happen to women all the time, I too have had my own session with my favorite photographer.

So what is a session like? Well, it’s whatever you want it to be. What is your definition of beautiful? Sweet and innocent, glamorous, spicy and sexy, or maybe even pin-up style from the 40’s? First we start off with the pampering….a glass of champagne, professional makeup and hairstylists, and then comes the fun talking about what you will wear (or not wear as the case may be). One of the questions I hear most often is “how will I know what to do in front of the camera?”, and that’s where I come in. Through careful posing, lighting and coaching the whole time, I guarantee you will end up with images both you and the man in your life will adore.

Private sessions are available, as well as parties (regular portrait parties, or boudoir portrait parties), which are just a ton of fun! This can be your own little secret if you want, but you owe it to yourself to feel good in your own skin. To quote a woman who recently experienced the rejuvenation of a boudoir session, “A glance at the book’s narrow spine is all I need in the middle of a long afternoon of helping with homework and managing squabbles to remember that there’s more to me than what my beloved kids, spread all around me, see.”
Check out my website, and I’ll see you at the Living Well event!

Vendor Spotlight: Fitness to Go

Fitness. It’s the first thing we think about every January 1st or when we have an upcoming event where we want to look amazing but it’s the last thing we check off on our giant “to do” list. We look at fitness as “a thing” we have to do to look better or to lose weight. For many of us it has a negative connotation – something we have to suffer through in order to reach a certain goal. “No pain, no gain”. Negative, negative, negative. But what if we looked at fitness with a whole different attitude – gratitude. Something to be thankful and grateful for.

When we think of being grateful, we think of the BIG things in life – a roof over our heads, a job that pays the bills and a family that loves us. But what about the smaller things like being able to walk up a flight of stairs, play in the yard with your kids and the ability to move? Our fitness is often over looked and taken for granted. It’s something we’ll focus on when we have more. More time, more money, more incentive. But what if your fitness abilities were taken away from you?

Fitness isn’t all about fitting into a pair of size 0 skinny jeans or getting back to your “high school weight”. It’s about how great moving makes you feel and the awesome things you can accomplish with the incredible body you have. When our ability to use our bodies is taken from us, we regret the things we didn’t do when we could have. You hurt your knees and you wish you would have taken up running. You break your arm and you wish you could toss the ball with your kids. So why not try living without regret and doing things just because you can. I’m not usually one to toot my own horn, but in the last year and a half alone, I ran the distance of the United States. My body and fitness allowed me put one foot in front of the other for 3500 miles. I didn’t do it to lose weight, win a contest or because someone was chasing me. I did it because I could. And I am extremely grateful that my body and fitness level allowed me to experience every mile of it.

I challenge you to look at fitness in a whole new light – with gratitude. Walk into the gym with a positive attitude. Be thankful that you can ask your body to do something and it will do it. Be grateful for the pride you feel after a great workout. And most of all, appreciate the amazing moments you will experience when you are grateful for what you have.

Fun Tip: Did you know that your level of fitness is what got you here? Before you were born, you “ran” the most important race of your life. In essence, you competed in a race to the distance of the moon against the entire population of the US and Japan and you won. In the survival of the fittest, you won the ultimate prize – life. What are you going to do with your prize?

Tera Busker, owner Fitness to Go, is passionate about helping you reach your fill fitness potential. Meet Tera at Living Well and learn about everything she has to offer!

Vendor Spotlight: The Sanctuary for Women & Girls

The Sanctuary for Women and Girls is a group psychotherapy practice dedicated to healing psychic wounds caused by the abuse of power in relationship. We see only women, and specialize in eating disorders and trauma-related anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. We use cutting-edge methods grounded in cognitive neuroscience, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and body-based approaches. We believe that you were born healthy and good, that you struggle only because you've been wounded, and that you have inside you everything you need to reach your potential--body, mind and soul.

Visit our booth to learn more about what relationship trauma does to the brain, body and soul, and how EMDR and bodywork can help. Dr. Killian will offer short, individualized demonstrations of bodywork, and Dr. Fisher will speak about past life regression as a form of "narrative therapy."

Vendor Spotlight: Lady Katherine

Lady Katherine 'women's fitness with a touch of sass' is a safe, supportive, female-only studio where women come to get fit. While they are creating strong, firm bodies in a fun, positive environment, they are also making friends and reconnecting with their 'feminine essence'.

Student Testimonial "I just wanted to share with you some results I have noticed. Before taking classes with Lady Katherine I took my weight and measurements. In 8 weeks of taking classes (without changing my diet) I have lost 6.5 lbs and a total of 11 inches all over my body! The biggest loss was around my belly button with 4" gone! I am so impressed I can't wait to see what results the next 8 weeks will bring to me. Thank you for the support and wonderful environment you provide to students to reshape their bodies and lives." Michelle, Hudson, WI

We have fitness classes for every fitness level, make and model. Our more traditional fitness classes include Abs & Booty, Body Booty Camp. In these classes we use weights, therabands and work on the mat to trim, tone, shape and firm your entire body. We do not use any filler moves - every move counts and makes a difference. Your exercise investment is valuable and we do not waste your time, energy or money. You leave class knowing that you worked hard! That's why students experience fast, effective results.

Our alternative fitness classes include Pole Dance and Signature, which is Exotic Dance for fitness. These classes work with the natural design of a woman's body, using smooth, circular, flowing movements much like belly dance to simultaneously engage multiple muscle groups creating an extremely effective workout targeting the typical female areas of concern - muffin tops, back breasts, tummy pouches, saddle bags and more. Because this is a new way of working out for most ladies the results come fast and right where you want them.

We also have the best parties! Our pole dance parties are a safe, affordable and super fun alternative to celebrating your special event or girls night out at the bar. We do a strip tease out of a man's dress shirt, then go to the pole for a complete pole routine. You bring the ladies - we bring the fun!!!! Full details at our website.
