At Footprints to Wellness, owner Paula Jurko knows that in order to take the right steps toward wellness, one starts with the feet. She helps alleviate pain and symptoms of health concerns by applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. She also preforms raindrop therapy, which applies nine essential oils into the spine and feet to help the body align structurally and electrically. Along with raindrop therapy, she preforms Reiki to balance the body and release tension.
Nurse and educator Michelle Kay understands that, when it comes to life's most challenging problems, a little assistance can make the difference between thriving and just treading water. Whether she's helping clients work through a weight-management plan, work through a troubling divorce, or curb anxiety and depression, she teaches them tactics for improving their situation in a healthy, constructive manner.
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in?Parents Magazine.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Your health is made up of more than just the physical. I help clients address their mindset surrounding food, ideas about exercise, excuses, habits, and limiting beliefs. I help you change how your mind thinks about weight, freeing you to pursue becoming your best self possible!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
You?ve noticed friends or family members that go work out at the gym or start a new diet, but they soon relapse or even gain more weight and that is very discouraging. Health is holistic; and too often the mental and emotional side is left out completely.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to see the long-term change in clients. The cool thing about coaching and hypnosis is that, often, once people are in a better state health wise, they see improvements in other areas of their life like their career, social life, relationships, and family life because it's all connected.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I think the most meaningful feedback has been in regards to the connection that the coaching relationship creates. Sometimes I am the only one in a client's life who really listens to them. I am happy I can provide that because everyone needs to be heard.
