BE KIND TO

YOURSELF

L

ooking back at our past issues of Fargo Monthly, spanning all the way back to 2013, I was a bit shocked to see that we'd never done a beauty/ pampering issue before. After all, everyone has SOMETHING they regularly do for self-care or grooming. This industry touches everyone and it deserves to be celebrated! As we were brainstorming ideas for who and what we wanted to feature in this special pampering edition of the magazine, our ideas began to grow outside of the box. As we pitched concepts, we wanted the contents to be useful to you readers, but we only have so many pages and featuring EVERY service available in town just wasn't an option.

That's when we landed on taking an unorthodox route and diving into some less-commercial methods of treating yourself. Everyone knows the benefits of a good massage and everyone has experienced the confidence boost of a new hair 'do. But have you experienced the wonders of a salt cave? What about the feeling of relaxation that comes with complete sensory deprivation in a float tank? We learned all about (and even experienced ourselves) some of these less talked about services in the area to inspire you to rethink our own wellness routine. Hopefully, this magazine will inspire you to look into more options that our city has available. I feel like every month I catch myself writing about the weather here in the upper midwest, but I'm going to mention it yet again. We've now been in the depth of winter for months now and, if you're like me, you've maybe been feeling it. I'm tired of the lack of sunlight and the snow piles that are growing dirtier, yet not really getting smaller. When stuck in this cold rut, it's important to look after yourself and allow yourself some T.L.C. So be kind to yourself and try out some pampering, both new to you methods or tried and true ones. I know trying these things out certainly helped bring some brightness into my month. Until Next Month,

Alexandra Martin


pampering, beauty and self-care that you may not know about or haven't experienced. Again, this is coming from a guy who has never had a massage, so all of this was foreign to me anyway.

SOMETHING

NEW

B

Beauty is not a word in my everyday vocabulary. I mean, have you seen me? Real talk, I've never had a massage in my life. I've never pampered myself in a beauteous way. I wear beanies to work, sport a decently sized beard and wear t-shirts whenever possible.

I wanted to try and play my part adequately with this issue. So when we began to brainstorm what we wanted the content to be, I thought we should do something outside the box. Most of you probably know where to get a massage or a manicure or a pedicure or whatever. Most of you also probably have your "goto" establishment for those services. So, we decided to do something different, to explore the areas of

The result ended up being quite fun. I'm a student at heart and learning about these various means of self-care and pampering was enlightening to me. Many of the ones I was tasked with exploring also related directly to health and wellness. That is something I'm obsessive with which made the experiences more enjoyable. I'm always one to be curious and I love to experiment and experience new things. Rest assured, doing Reiki at Hair Success was not on my radar this month. Yet, the time we spent with Jane and her doing Reiki on me was amazing and I think everyone should experience it. It brought a sense of calmness to my life that I have not had in a very long time. Now, I am by no means a beauty or self-care expert, but I did dip my toes into something new this month. You should do the same...

CooltoneÂŽ AT FARGO CENTER FOR DERMATOLOGY

w

hen we think of "pampering," what comes to mind is a dimly lit room with the flicker of candles and the scents of essential oils. However, there are ways to pamper yourself that are rooted in new technology and medical practices. If meditating and yoga aren't your speed, consider the brand new, technology-based treatment, CoolTone. If you're looking for a quick and easy way to get that more defined body or to achieve that athletic advantage you haven't been able to reach from workouts alone, CoolTone is worth looking into. What is this futuristic technology and is it right for you? We got the scoop from Dr. Rachel Ness and her team at Fargo Center for Dermatology.

What Does It Do? CoolTone uses EMS, or electromagnetic stimulation, to activate the muscles. What this does is stimulate muscles in a way that is equivalent to doing 2,000 squats or 2,000 sit-ups...but without the sweat or gym membership. It triggers muscle-groups that patients often have a hard time setting off naturally, therefore leaving them feeling like they are not achieving the results they want. The results are toned muscles and a sculpted physique. While CoolTone might seem like it's just for aesthetic purposes, there are medical benefits as well. For some, it is empowering to sit up a little straighter, as it improves posture and stability. Along with postural issues, building up the muscles in your abdomen, glutes and thighs can help relieve back pain or other musculoskeletal issues. This treatment isn't to replace a good diet and exercise routine, but it can be used as a supplement to bring patients to that next level they desire.

How Does It Work? The CoolTone treatment takes place in a body contouring-specific room within Fargo Center for Dermatology's brand-new facility. The room is set up to allow the patient to relax during the treatment and even watch television during it. Patients have the option to 18 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

receive pre-treatment photography so that they can see their results. The photography room at the practice is private, ensuring patients feel comfortable getting their pre- and postphotography done. As for the treatment itself, the Cooltone device will be placed (over your clothes) on the selected treatment area of the abdomen, glutes or thighs. Then, the device uses electromagnetic energy to cause the muscles to contract. This stimulation helps build, sculpt and firm muscles that you might otherwise have difficulty activating. Sessions last 20 to 30 minutes in length, making them perfect for a mid-day treatment that will tone your body without you having to return to your day sweaty. Dr. Ness explained the experience by comparing it to having a personal trainer with you. Except that personal trainer is one of Fargo Center for Dermatology's aesthetic nurses. During the treatment, the nurse "drives" the CoolTone machine, gradually increasing intensity at 5-10 percent increments. The experience is not painful or uncomfortable but rather feels like a series of muscle contractions. The physical feelings are accompanied by a purring and clicking sound as the machine works its magic. After the session is complete, CoolTone leaves no swelling, discomfort or skin changes to the body, so there is zero downtime, save for possibly some muscle soreness. To see results, patients typically start with two sessions a week for two weeks and then maintenance sessions about once a month.

How Does It Pamper? Not only will CoolTone help you achieve your physical goals, but it will help you jump-start your health and fitness regime. For some of us, injuries or lack of results in the past keep us from hitting the gym and achieving the look and feel we want. But with CoolTone here to prove to you that, these goals aren't so far away and anyone can get back in the saddle. "A lot of us get [pain] from chronic sitting and not finding time to get to the gym. We don't take time for ourselves. So this is a time to pamper your body and your core muscles and really get that good posture and build those muscles," said Dr. Ness. The friendly and knowledgable staff at Fargo Center of Dermatology will make you feel right at home as you work hand-in-hand to achieve your physical goals. We all need a little help here and there, so pamper yourself and try it out!

Float Tank AT SALT₂O FLOAT SPA

E

ver feel the need to escape the outside world? Want to engulf yourself in a tranquil and controlled environment where your lone goal is relaxation? Maybe the next time you pamper yourself, you should opt for a salt float at Salt₂O Float Spa in Fargo. Not only is this practice sweeping the nation, but it is also helping heal and relax those who choose to "float". But how does it work and what will it do to relax your body. We found out for you.

What Does It Do? Floating is used in a multitude of different ways. Since your body loses 80 percent of its weight thanks to the salt concentration in the water, it feels as though you are quite literally floating. This feeling is oftentimes relaxing to many. However, float therapy is a great way of dealing with stress. As they say at Salt₂O Float Spa, it allows your body and mind to hit the reset button. Salt₂O Float Spa has clientele that uses floating to treat anxiety, depression, PTSD and other mental health issues. They also see clients using float therapy to treat physical conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, injury recovery, physical therapy or any other chronic pain issues.

How Does It Work? The practice of floating is simple enough in principle. At Salt₂O Float Spa, they offer four float rooms for you to experience. Each room offers a separate shower and preparation area before you float. Once you are ready to float, take a step inside the float tank. The tank is slightly bigger than your typical household bathtub, but what it does for your body is anything but typical. The tub is only filled with less than a foot of water. The rest is filled with salt (800 pounds of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt to be exact). The water and air within the float tank are the same as your body. Upon laying down in the tub, you will immediately begin to float. This is because the salt concentration in the water takes away 80 percent of your body weight. At Salt₂O Float Spa, you float for a 60-minute session before getting out of the tub. 20 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

How Does It Pamper? Not only is floating a great escape from whatever might be troubling you, but it is a great way to pamper yourself. We all strive to be mentally and physically well every day. Unfortunately, that may seem impossible at times due to the stresses of our daily lives. At Salt₂O Float Spa, you can reach pure serenity and calmness thanks to the sensation floating provides. Couple that with lightproof, soundproof and soft light and music and you will truly escape reality for the entirety of your float. There are not too many places where you can truly forget about life for a while, but Salt₂O Float Spa is one of those places. That alone is pampering enough for anyone!

Reiki

AT HAIR SUCCESS SALON & SPA

E

ver need a calming and healing escape? While there are several forms of healing and relaxation in our area, Reiki is perhaps the most unique. A form of what many deem "alternative medicine", Reiki is widely misunderstood by many. It is certainly not the most traditional of healing and calming methods, but speaking from experience, it is quite effective. But what is it exactly? We experienced and witnessed Reiki with Jane Welte-Fugere at Hair Success Salon & Spa.

What Does It Do? Reiki is a form of Japanese healing and relaxation. In other circles, it is referred to as energy healing. Practitioners like Jane use methods like palm and hands-on healing to transfer universal energy to the patient. It is this universal energy that helps to heal and comfort. "But what is healing?" You might be asking yourself that very question currently. Many of us think of healing as purely physical. If we break our leg, it has to heal. However, what Reiki offers is more than just physical healing. The universal energy transferred into the body offers emotional, mental and spiritual healing. In that sense, it is not only a way to heal, but a way to calm and relax your mind, body and spirit.

How Does It Work? Jane began practicing Reiki after a friend performed it on her. During the session, Jane visualized a symbol in her mind. When her friend asked her to draw the symbol following the session, Jane's friend was astonished. The symbol stood for Reiki which served as Jane's calling to begin practicing Reiki. A session can be either 30 or 50 minutes with Jane at Hair Success. She begins each session by excusing herself from the room to "gather" herself. Jane notes that energy transfer is much more difficult if she does not gather herself beforehand. With the lights low and relaxing music playing, Jane begins the Reiki session. 24 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

By Nolan P. Schmidt Photos by Kayleigh Omang


What ensues is Jane moving her palms above different parts of your body. Occasionally, she will touch a certain part of your body (in my case, it was my shoulders and arms). This is when the energy transfer is taking place. While Jane hovers her hands above you, some patients may experience physical or mental tics. Jane has had clients that have never blinked once during a session for example. On occasion, you can actually feel the energy being transferred into your body. How? The heat radiated from Jane's hands. While her hands hover, her hands can feel as hot as a stovetop, but upon touching them they are at room temperature. Throughout the session, Jane will discuss with you what she is feeling. Following the session, you will have a sort of exit interview with Jane. This includes her asking what you felt and saw during this session. She will use this information to help advise you on what to do next.

How Does It Pamper? Speaking from experience, Reiki is a truly relaxing and calming way of pampering yourself. For example, here are a few things I felt before my session with Jane: - My legs were incredibly sore from exercise earlier that day. - My mind was completely scrambled. I was stressed and agitated from an event that had occurred at work earlier that day. After my session with Jane, I had completely forgotten about that stressful work event. I was no longer upset or agitated at anything. I felt extremely calm and content. As far as my sore legs? It felt as though I had not exercised at all. I truly felt amazing. I don't think there is any better evidence of Reiki's effectiveness and ability to pamper than that right there.

The Arvigo® TECHNIQUES BY NATURALLY RANDI KAY

I

t is safe to say that everyone in their life has experienced abdominal troubles at some point. Have you ever suffered from painful menstrual cycles? Mysterious lower-back pain? Unexplained bloating or digestion issues? Or maybe even you've experienced difficult childbirth or suffer from endometriosis or are recovering from surgery.

Our abdominal region holds most of our essential organs, yet is widely not taken care of enough. However, to get you treating your core right, Randi Kay Olsen Heinold of Naturally Randi Kay in downtown Fargo offers abdominal therapy services, specifically The Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. The common person most likely has never heard of Arvigo®, so what exactly is it? With the help of Naturally Randi Kay, we experienced the Arvigo® Maya Techniques of Abdominal Therapy ourselves.

What Does It Do? The Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy was developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN. and founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage. This technique is an external non-invasive manipulation that repositions internal organs that have shifted, thereby restricting the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi. Randi Kay became tuned-into this specific practice after seeing successes in her clients she incorporated abdominal massage on. After seeing how healing abdominal massage was, she began to research further to see what continuing education she could find on it. This research lead her to a weekend training on Arvigo Mayan Massage and then to Belize to study with the practice's founder. "Physically, we need to be nurturing these big muscles that play a vital part in our bodies. But energetically, emotionally, with aligning the organs so they operate optimally. There’s just so much going on there and it’s been neglected for too long," she said. Naturally Randi Kay has a clientele that use this technique to treat painful or irregular periods, pelvic pain, endometriosis, PCOS, digestion issues (IBS, indigestion, etc.), scar tissue from c-sections or fibroids, low back pain and bladder dysfunction. She also has a clientele that relies on this treatment to get back in touch with their feminine energy. 26 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

By Alexandra Martin Photos by Kayleigh Omang


How Does It Work? The experience of an Arvigo therapy session is similar to your standard massage session. You get set up on a massage table and draped and covered properly. Randi Kay uses her own massage oils, made with medicinal plants that are meant for nurturing the abdomen and reproductive organs. In a gentle, noninvasive way, Randi Kay massages the abdominal muscles. One of the tenets Argivo is centered around is making sure the uterus is in proper alignment. This does mean that much of the massage will be working close to the public bone, but Randi Kay values modesty and ensuring that there's communication between herself and the client. In addition to reproductive treatment, the massage also targets the digestive tract, lower back, pelvis and sacrum. At Naturally Randi Kay, the first session of Arvigo is an hour and a half, to account for the initial intake, treatment and then selfcare education. The following sessions are one hour long.

How Does It Pamper? The non-invasive massage techniques relieve tension in the muscles and connective tissues and coax things back into place. The practice can relieve a myriad of common issues, spanning from physical to emotional. Because Randi Kay is trained in many other modalities, acting as a bodyworker and therapeutic yoga teacher for over 10 years now, she is able to tailor the experience per the patient's needs. This is a personalized experience, not just a one-time pampering venture. "The best part of Arvigo is I teach a self-care routine that you can do at home that is personalized for your condition. So it becomes more of an empowering, ongoing thing because you're taking the healing home with you and you start cultivating that important relationship with yourself," said Randi Kay. Pair the ongoing inner work with the warm and welcoming space of Studio 14 1/2, and you have a practice that will go beyond just a temporary pampering but could change the way you think about self-care as a whole.

Salt Cave AT INSPIRE HEALTH & WELLNESS SPA

w

e all run into allergies, congestion and other respiratory hindrances over the course of the calendar year. Whether we're breathing in toxins, pollen or other forms of pollution, there is no shortage of airborne illness in society. In an attempt to combat that, Inspire Health & Wellness Spa in West Fargo offers halotherapy (also known as salt therapy) inside their state of the art salt cave. But what does it do for you and how does it lead you to your best life? We found out.

What Does It Do? Halotherapy is beneficial in combatting airborne illnesses a person may have while also providing a relaxing environment to heal your body. It is proven that salt therapy will help make breathing easier while shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, congestion and skin irritation will gradually be alleviated.

How Does It Work? At Inspire Health & Wellness Spa, they rely on what is called a Halogenerator. The generator intakes salt and heats it up before it is pumped into the salt cave. Doing this evaporates any amount of moisture in the cave and ensures that clients are inhaling salt particles in their peak form. These particles go deep into parts of your lungs which will help break down toxins found in the respiratory system. The salt particles that are not inhaled will fall onto your skin, which has been shown to help those dealing with eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or acne. Each salt cave session at Inspire Health & Wellness Spa is 45 minutes and is the equivalent of spending three days at a saltwater beach. 28 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

How Does It Pamper? Devices are not allowed inside the salt cave. This ensures everyone experiencing the positive impact of the cave is relaxed and not distracted. Using the salt cave will ensure a new step in your wellness journey and clear your body of toxins from the inside out. There is nothing more pampering than leaving the salt cave feeling great and ready to attack what's next. Inspire Health & Wellness Spa also offers yoga courses inside the salt cave. The deep breathing experienced in yoga allows you to enjoy the benefits of salt therapy even more. The relaxing nature of the salt cave provides very clean and calm energy for yoga practitioners as well.

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

BY Dr. Sue Mathison Catalyst Medical Center and Clinical Spa Founder PHOTO BY Hillary Ehlen

Self Care Isn’t Selfish

Self-care is a popular buzzword, sometimes met with an eye roll. But, it’s no joke. Those who know how to take good care of themselves often have more to give others and enjoy more positive emotions. Looking forward, your future self will be healthier and happier too. Self-care is the ultimate health care reform. It starts with intentional awareness of these daily health pillars: Sleep, Healthy Eating, Movement, Relaxation and Connection. Add in a few extras when possible, and you’ve got a winning plan for effective self-care. Create brief simple rituals that support this plan. If you’re a parent, there is nothing better that you can do for your kids than create intentional rituals that will bake good self-care into your daily routines. Be the role model, but include them in these routines whenever possible. Good self-care involves developing reserves and resilience that help you travel the inevitable up and down journey of life.

Sleep well. This is the only overnight cure. You really can make a big health impact in one night with quality sleep. Make it very dark, cool and quiet in your bedroom and ban electronics and blinking lights. Use blueblocker glasses in the evening to shade out light that overstimulates your brain. My son loves a little iPod time in the evening and his next gift is some cool shades.

Eat to nourish. Try to flip the switch on cravings and learn which foods help you feel the best. I tried the Whole30 plan last month, eliminating dairy, flour, sugar, sweeteners, bread, grains, processed foods and alcohol. I had significant improvement in my flexibility and joint pains, so I think I’m going to keep up many aspects of it. What foods make you feel great? Which foods make you tired or uncomfortable? Be your own detective, or get checked for food sensitivities. To pass this along, teach the kids three to five age-appropriate simple dishes that can be assembled or prepared faster than fast food.

Move your body. This does not have to be an intimidating workout. A morning walk or and evening stroll counts. Walk the dog and the kids. Scatter four to five dance breaks throughout the day. Stretching makes you feel like a graceful cat. Lifting heavy things, barbells or groceries a couple of

times a week is great. Work yourself up to a class and stand in back if you’re shy. We’re so lucky to have amazing options at the YMCA, Family Wellness, Courts Plus, Park District, Community Education, Mojo Fit, Anytime Fitness, Planet Fitness and numerous private gyms and yoga studios around town. And don’t forget Barre classes, Cycle Bar, SolidCore, Orange Theory, hot yoga, Surf Classes and more. Move it, shake it, lift it and be a little silly and have fun. If you can’t do all the moves, laugh it off. Move it so you don’t lose it.

Relaxation helps your mind and body. This is as simple as two minutes of deep breathing in the morning. It can be prayer, meditation, guided imagery, journaling or reading. Ask friends if they have any favorites. What calms and centers you? If you need to explore more, consider an app like Calm or Headspace. For real tech lovers, the Muse headband is a meditation device that provides real-time feedback on your mental activity, heart rate, breathing and body movements so you can track your results and progress. Having a massage, bodywork or facial on a regular basis is a great way to relax. The power of touch is a powerful psychological boost in addition to soothing sore muscles and improving skin.

your days. Have family game nights that inspire laughter along with a little healthy competition. “Girls Night Out" with your friends is also important. And “Guys Get-Togethers” have meaning beyond football scores. Make it more about the conversation than the cocktails. If you are really brave, give some hugs. A 20-second heart-to-heart hug is scientifically proven to boost positive hormones.

The little extras make it all worthwhile. I’m currently reading a book called “Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness” by Ingrid Fetell Lee. The message is simply that joy is all around us if we know where to look, and we can learn to cultivate joy in our everyday lives. It’s about noticing what brings us pleasure. It’s about being aware of birds singing, a beautiful sunset or frost on the trees. It’s about relishing cozy socks, a warm sweater and a cup of tea on a cold day. It’s a few moments of basking in the sun at the lake, enjoying the waves and a little bit of breeze. Make a list of happy moments and things you enjoy, and intentionally seek them out. Consider all the little self-care rituals and habits that make up your pillars of health and the silver linings that these fill your bucket with reserves and resilience. Self-care allows us to be grateful for our bodies, our minds, our spirits and others. Life is good!

Connection makes the world go round. It’s said that loneliness is deadlier than cigarette smoking. Be intentional about meaningful conversations with your family. Discuss the highs and lows of

et's be honest. It's intimidating to go to a medical center and trust someone with your skin and body. Personally, I've always been too nervous to book a trip to a medical spa. I was 23 when I got my first massage and didn't even get a manicure until I was 24. The air of mystery behind these pampering services always scared me off from taking the step to better self-care. Thankfully, Fargo is lucky enough to be home to Catalyst Medical Center and Clinical Spa, a place where I can be free from mysteries and confusion. I walked through a full experience at Catalyst to give you readers a better idea of what the Catalyst experience is really like. From checking in to the medical consultation to the services provided, I experienced it all so that you have no questions or hesitations when making your own appointment.

34 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

If you've never been before, Catalyst is a multi-specialty clinic renowned for the compassionate care provided by trusted experts whose life passions are to help their patients lead happier, healthier, more beautiful lives. While Catalyst has two divisions, the medical side and the clinical spa, today we are going to focus just on the pampering spa side. However, just because it is a “spa” doesn’t mean it is all purely aesthetic. The clinical spa does all its services with health in mind. From Botox for migraines to Emsculpt for better posture, Catalyst is dedicated to treating its patients with the marriage of beauty

and health at the forefront.

Checking In When I arrived I check-in at the friendly front desk. Here, I received an iPad with just a few more things to fill out, just to make sure I am who I say I am. Another benefit that Catalyst provides right off the bat is short waiting room times. During this short period between when I checked-in and when I was called back, I got to relax in their beautifully designed lobby (there's a chandelier!) and drink some complimentary coffee (or tea). Not a bad way to start what would be a very pampering visit. For most, the first appointment begins with a consultation, and I was no different. This means that I didn't need to worry about and pre-op preparations. All you need is yourself. I'm a make-up wearer, which is something I unnecessarily worry about whenever I get any sort of cosmetic treatment done (there's no shame quite like getting up from a massage and leaving

a nice, tan stain on the face pillow!). But I was happy to learn that at Catalyst, you can come however you feel comfortable, and if that means you're wearing makeup, then they will take care of that for you. In fact, they even supply a line of mineral makeup that they will apply on to you afterward if you've got places to go and people to see after your treatment.

Medical Consultation Before Catalyst did any services or treatments on me, I got a consultation with one of their physicians, which is standard with any patient. In this consultation, the doctor (in my case, I met with Catalyst's founder Dr. Sue Mathison) and I discussed my medical history. Describing this step more in-depth, Catalyst's Marketing Director Karisa Shuck said, "You will talk about some things that concern you and your problem areas and they will give you some options from there. They are a wealth of knowledge and it's like a free doctor's check-in before your spa treatment." Not to worry about booking two separate visits, I enjoyed how the consultation and the treatment were done on the same day. As I'm busy with deadlines for work, having to go out to the practice multiple times just isn't in my schedule. "A lot of patients choose to do a consultation and a treatment the same day, we just block a little bit of extra time in just in case we decide together to change the treatment path," said Shuck. This consultation is one of the things that sets Catalyst apart. By being checked by

Experience a doctor before I dove into my skincare journey, Catalyst ensured that I was healthy. Shuck said, "We are as safe as possible and talk about everything healthwise before moving into beauty. Health comes first, beauty comes second." This ideal ensures that the treatments you receive will actually be the most beneficial to you. For a virtual stranger to the skincare world, this consultation helped guide me to what's best for me, my skin and my budget. I came in blind and was able to narrow in that a Hydrafacial based on what my skin was wanting at the time. However, my next visit might require a different practice, and the team at Catalyst will ensure I'm always getting the best care possible. With so many services available, it's hard to know what's best for you. It's important to note that Catalyst isn't a boutique where you get to come in and choose anything you want. Instead, the providers will assess you and your health standing and make sure the services you receive are the right ones. In a world where the line between medical and cosmetic practices are moving further and further away from each other, Catalyst takes pride in always making the healthy choice. For instance, If I had a suspicious-looking mole on my face, it's safe to say that a facial probably wouldn't treat that and I'd need to look into more serious services before moving forward.

The Services For my visit, I got a HydraFacial. If I were to describe the experience of that treatment itself, it would be a whole other

article. I felt like a new woman afterward. My skin was glowing and I felt completely refreshed, something I was much needing in this dry-air season. In short, I got cozied up in a heated bed with the smell of essential oils in the air. The treatment was relaxing and involved a facial massage followed by painless extractions in a method that's a bit like a microdermabrasion and a facial all in one. It cleansed, exfoliated, hydrated and infused my skin with antioxidants and peptides that I didn't even know I was missing! Some facial treatments take two to three weeks to show results, but the results of this treatment were instant. I left glowing, which sounds cheesy, but it really is the best word to describe the effects. This instant gratification and its customization might be one of the reasons that this treatment is a customer favorite. This treatment is a quick, 45-minute session that is perfect for anyone with a schedule they think is too full for special treatments. I took my treatment on my lunch break and it was the perfect midday pampering to prepare me to finish off my day strong and refreshed.

Post Services and Products Catalyst believes that you should love your skincare routine. I've tried a couple of different combinations of facial washes and moisturizers, but I never really loved the routine. I expressed this in my consultation and Catalyst guided me into suggestions. When my treatment was done, they sent me home with some samples so I could try the suggestions out before investing in a full supply.

As the prices for services vary if you are new to the cosmetic-world, Catalyst ensures that you are comfortable with what you're signing up for and won't be surprised when you check-out. Personally, I'm saving up for my summer wedding, so being conscious of how much things cost is huge for me. "The biggest thing is that the patient's best interest is always in mind. We are not going to sell you something that you don't need. We are always talking budget before moving forward with treatment. We are not going to surprise you with a big invoice," said Shuck. Ending my visit to Catalyst, I was reminded again of the value placed on privacy here. There's a private recovery lounge to relax and put yourself together before returning to your day and also a private checkout process. With many patients, they value this discretion and ability to come and go from their services quietly, including a private exit. In choosing where to go, what makes Catalyst different? Patients choose Catalyst because they don't want to feel like a number. With a team that is led by strong ethics, the personalized touches that Catalyst provides make patients feel safe and confident in the services provided. From the moment I stepped into the building, I felt welcomed and accepted. In anything medical-related, I want to feel comfortable and educated on what is being performed on me. Catalyst's providers took the time to educate me on what target issues I was experiencing and what routes were available and recommended for my treatment. And that is the Catalyst experience. 35

Beauty Below The Surface B

eauty goes beyond the surface. This is a true statement in many contexts. A killer personality can trump a pretty face, for example. The filling of a pecan pie is undoubtedly the tastiest part of the pastry. But think for a moment about everything going on under neath our streets in Fargo and how important it is for every resident of the metro. More specifically, let’s take a look at the water main network. It may not be the most appealing topic, but it’s definitely a thing of beauty.

BY Ty Filley, Public Information Coordinator at The City of Fargo PHOTOS PROVIDED BY The City of Fargo 42 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

​​ Allow me to set the stage for a moment. Most people don’t realize how massive and intricate the water main system is in Fargo. The mains cover so much area, if each pipe was laid end to end, it would reach 500 miles; half the distance to Frisco, Texas. The Fargo Wastewater Treatment Plant treats more than 12

million gallons of wastewater on an average day. About 97 percent of that water comes from residential sources in Fargo and West Fargo such as water from sinks, toilets and floor drains. That’s 18 Olympic sized swimming pools worth of wastewater treated each average day. ​ ut Fargo’s wastewater treatment system B isn’t just huge. It’s also quite effective. The water released back into the river after the Wastewater Treatment plant sanitizes it is extremely clean and surpasses industry standards. The treated wastewater typically has fewer contaminants than the water coming into Fargo from upstream on the Red River. This is made possible by a rigorous sanitation process. I​t begins with the removal of any solids in the water. The Fargo Wastewater Treatment Plant uses mechanical and biological strategies to remove them from the wastewater. In plain English, raw sewage passes through a screen that filters out large pieces of debris. Then


the water is pumped into a vortex (like a tornado) which separates and removes other gritty materials. From there, the water has air pumped into it to help organic material in the water float to the top. The water then travels through seven clarifiers, which further skim materials out. After that, the water is pumped through two filters containing bacteria that eat some of the organic waste in the water. The water is then chlorinated and dechlorinated. Removed solids are dried out and sent to the landfill, while the clean water is returned to the Red River. ​ ome of the key cogs in this “machine” S are the City’s lift stations. Roughly 70 of these stations are positioned across Fargo. Lift stations pump the wastewater into the City’s collection system. These stations are incredibly effective at dealing with the demands of Fargo and West Fargo’s wastewater needs. But on occasion things can go wrong.

​ he Fargo Wastewater Department T utilizes tracking within all of its lift stations to know when they need maintenance. From time-to-time, the lift stations can become clogged with debris which isn’t meant to be flushed down the drain. Wipes, rags, personal hygiene products and other – more unmentionable – items can create massive blockages in the lift stations. Those wads of junk can measure nearly six feet tall and have to be cleared by wastewater crews. It’s important to remember what goes down your drain doesn’t simply disappear. Many clogs can be prevented if people are mindful of what they’re flushing. ​ s long as there has been humanity, A there has been a need to get rid of the waste created by people. Today, the City can easily and effectively get rid of any wastewater residents need. Miles and miles of piping the average person never even seen take care of it with maximal efficiency. All things considered, the whole system is a thing of beauty. 43


MEET THE

PiscesPieces Handmade P

amper yourself this month with local maker PiscesPieces Handmade!

By Ashley Morken, Unglued Photos Provided By PiscesPieces

44 | MARCH 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Tell us about yourself: Hi! My name is Christy and I’m the Owner and Creator of PiscesPieces Handmade. I grew up in Pembina, N.D., and moved to Fargo after I graduated from high school. I’ve been in Fargo for almost 12 years now and I really enjoy it here! My husband and I have been married for almost nine years and we have five boys, Ethan (13), Noah (9), Dalen (5), Christian (5) (twins) and Leo (1). We are definitely busy, but we love it! When I’m not working in retail and chasing after my kids, I make time for my business. Sometimes that means being up until 2 a.m., making products for stores or completing online orders. Creating bath products makes me happy, so if I have to sacrifice some sleep for some happiness, I’m okay with that.

Describe what you create under PiscesPieces Handmade? I make bath and body products. All of my products are handmade and are made from scratch. The products that I handmake are Bath Bombs, Roll-On Perfumes and Colognes, Aluminum Free Deodorant, Shower Steamers, Masks, Bubble Scoops, Whipped Body Polish, Whipped Soap, Bath Salts, Body Butter and Sugar Scrubs. Some of my products are also vegan! How did you get into this type of handmade business? I first started out making jewelry and playing with beads. A friend of mine made jewelry and she got me into it. When I had some pieces made, I started up an Etsy shop. I jumped from making jewelry to making


bath bombs. I remember my first batch, I failed miserably! I started tweaking and making my recipe just right. I make about 12 different products right now and I am always thinking about more. I love testing and trying new products. Figuring out the perfect recipe for a product is such an amazing accomplishment for me. Favorite product you currently make? Whipped soap is my favorite product that I currently make. It has a creamy and fluffy texture and makes an amazing, lush lather that leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. You can use it in place of body wash or shaving cream as well. Favorite scent you use? I have two favorite scents actually. I absolutely love the “Bite Me” scent that I use in my bath bombs and I am also very fond of the scent “Killer” that I use in my roll-on perfume. “Bite Me” scent has fresh citrus notes of lime and orange, with effervescent highlights, that blend into a very luscious mix of berry and cherry. The “Killer” scent is an irresistible floral fragrance, that has notes of plum, red velvet flower, tempting jasmine and dark patchouli.

If someone really wanted to pamper themselves, which products of yours would you recommend? I would definitely recommend one of my Bath Bombs first, to have an amazing and relaxing bath. The Bath Bomb will make your skin soft with its oils and salt. Then my Sugar Rush Sugar Scrub to exfoliate away any dead skin. Next, Whipped Soap to get all squeaky clean. Finally, after the bath is complete, Dream Cream Body Butter. It is a thick and luxurious body butter made with Shea and Cocoa butter. A must-have for our winters here in Fargo! What is your favorite thing about having a maker business? I love being able to create whatever I want and make it as awesome as possible. It makes me happy to be creative and experiment with how my products are made, even though some parts are frustrating, I totally love it! I think it also sets a great example for my children, that hard work pays off and building something from the ground up is worth it.

fresh and different. It can take me a bit but, when something finally comes together in my mind, something that I have been working on forever is complete, then it’s absolutely worth it. What advice would you have given yourself 10 years ago? Relax and calm down. Try not to put so much pressure on yourself. Success will come from hard work and dedication and that you will make it. Everything will all fall into place as it should. Where can people find your work? People can find my work in several stores in North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota and on my website. How can we stay in touch? piscespieceshandmade.com facebook.com/piscespieceshandmade Instagram: @piscespieceshandmade

What is the most challenging thing? The most challenging thing I think is coming up with a product that is new,

Mind If I Do

w

aking up on that first morning of your weekend is great no matter what. Add on top of that freshly fried and warm doughnuts. Yes, doughnuts make everything better. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of great doughnut shops in town but if you’re really out to get the warmest and freshest ones, you’re going to have to be the first few people in line. With some of these shops opening as early as 5:30 in the morning, that might be a tough feat when you want to catch a couple more hours of sleep. When making your own at home there’s no hassle of leaving or waiting in line. Where is the doughnut from? It may seem like the United States is the only place where there are doughnuts, but cultures from around the world have their own interpretations. The true origin isn’t really that well known. The Dutch brought their own "oil cake" version to New York, the Romans fried their left-over bread dough and dipped it in syrup and the

Italians had their own called the zeppole. The true American origin is said to be from the Dutch version that was later turned into what we now know as doughnuts. When it comes to making doughnuts, there are two sides to itcake doughnuts or yeast doughnuts. The debate of which one is best is as big as the debate of bean or no bean chili. At the end of the day, it’s just a fried piece of dough, right?... Wrong! A cake doughnut is essentially cake batter, which is chemically leavened with baking powder and baking soda. It delivers a crumbly, fluffy and very dunk-able texture. The yeast doughnut conveys a light, chewy, slightly yeasty flavor with little to no sweetness that lets the glaze or coating shine. With this recipe, I chose to use the yeast doughnut recipe because if you’re choosing to treat yourself, you should take your time with it.


Orange-Scented Doughnuts with Lavender Glaze RECIPE:

Yield: 18-24 doughnuts Time: 8-15 Hours Equipment Needed: Stand mixer, 3inch round cutter, ½ inch round cutter heavy-bottomed pot, oil thermometer, rolling pin, metal spatula.

Ingredients for doughnut:

• 1 cup milk • 2 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon, active dry yeast • 2 Tablespoon + ½ teaspoon, water • 5 ½ Cups + 3 tablespoons, all-purpose flour • ½ Cup sugar • 3 teaspoons salt • Zest of 4 oranges • 5 whole eggs • 10 ounces butter (at room temperature) • 2 quarts vegetable oil (for frying)

Ingredients for the glaze: • • • •

5 Cups powdered sugar 2/3 C hot tap water ¼ C vanilla extract 2T dried lavender

Steps: • Warm the milk in a saucepan over low heat until warm. Remove from the heat and sprinkle yeast over top and add the water. Let the mix sit for 15-20 minutes to bloom. • Combine flour, sugar, salt in the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment. Turn on and mix for 2 minutes. While it's mixing, add in the yeast mixture, orange zest, eggs and butter. Beat on medium speed until everything is incorporated and smooth. Continue to beat for 12 minutes. • Grease a bowl large enough to fit twice the size of the dough. Transfer dough into the greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit for 30 minutes. Once proofed, punch it down and fold it over onto itself to make it smooth again. At this point, the dough can be refrigerated anywhere from 6 to 15 hours. • Once it has proofed and you’re ready to eat. Uncover and transfer the dough to a floured work surface (flour is your friend). Divide the dough into half so it’s easier to work with. One half can be frozen if you don’t want to use the whole batch. • Flour the rolling pin and roll the dough into a rectangle that is ½ an inch thick. Let rest for 15 minutes. Once rested, cut out as many circles using the 3-inch cutter. Then use the ½ in cutter to cut out the doughnut holes. Toss scrap. Once cut, dust with flour and cover with plastic wrap and let proof for 1 more hour (they will double in size). • While that proofs you can make the glaze. In the bowl of a stand mixer add the powdered sugar, ½ cup of the water, vanilla and the lavender. Beat on medium speed until smooth, adding water to get the desired consistency • Heat oil to 350 degrees using oil thermometer. • Working with 2-3 at a time (don’t crowd the pot). Slide each doughnut into the oil using a spatula. Brown each side for 2 minutes (or until golden brown), flipping with the spatula. Once browned, using tongs or a spatula, transfer to a wire rack to drain off excess oil. Let cool for 2 minutes and pour glaze over top. Repeat the process until all the doughnuts are done. Enjoy!

At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today. jadepresents.com Fargo Theatre 314 Broadway

Jade & Wicked Good Time Presents: Borgore with FreeDrugz, Kotton & 2Clapz Thursday, March 12 at 8:30 p.m.

Borgore is one of electronic music’s most popular and polarizing artists. Called the enfant terrible of bass culture and happy to name himself the man who “ruined dubstep,” the LA-based, Tel Aviv-born producer’s genre-destroying “gorestep” and maniacal live shows have made him an iconic character in the modern bass scene. Borgore’s enthusiastic disruption of current electronic music is backed up by sterling musical credentials, proving the old saying that you have to know the rules before you can break them. Formally trained in jazz at Tel Aviv’s Thelma Yellin music academy he was a saxophone prodigy and composed for big band ensembles. jadepresents.com Sanctuary Events Center 670 4th Ave N.

The Avalon Event Center along with Southern Glazer Distributing and Patron invite you to their Mixology Mixer event. Are you tired of ordering the same drink everywhere you go? Whether it's your class reunion or a blacktie event, have you become a connoisseur of the rum and coke? Does your personal liquor stock host the same line-up that you had in your college dorm room? Don't you think it is about time to 'renovate' your liquor awareness, give it a modern upgrade? In a world of fast results, tight budgets and maximum gain, this event gives you a night to try the drinks that you have always wanted to try, ask questions that you have hesitated to ask and ultimately walk away with the knowledge and exposure to transition from a world of 'comfort' drinking, to a world of 'enjoyment' drinking. avaloneventscenter.com Avalon Events Center 2525 9th Ave S

THELASTPAGE

Legacy children' children Children's 's foundation Foundation the opportunities they help with are all earned by the participating students, allowing a level playing field to be achieved by teens with, otherwise, limited resources to excel.

Legacy Children’s Foundation works with diverse teenagers to provide academic support, emotional encouragement and real-world experiences through job shadowing, community service and meaningful rewards. They are proud to be a hand UP organization, not a hand OUT one. They acknowledge that

Legacy Children’s Foundation teaches young people in our community to develop a mindset of “anything is possible” and embraces an attitude of gratitude by loving and serving our neighbors.

From its beginnings, Legacy Children’s Foundation has grown from just 11 students to an enrollment of 80 today. Their service-learning has expanded from one monthly project to more than seven. 100% of students who stayed active in Legacy Children’s Foundation programming graduated with their peers. This growth and these statistics go to show just how needed this type of organization is in our community.

How to Help In order for Legacy Children’s Foundation to keep doing what they are doing, they need the help of the community. Executive Director Mary Jean Dehne said, “The gift of presence inspires students to see our community values them. The gift of financial presents allows the work of educating young people to be leaders and productive citizens to continue.” Whether your support is financial or relationship-based, your help to Legacy Children’s Foundation will allow them to continue to lead service-learning projects and youth-led fundraisers in the community. Without Legacy Children’s Foundation, our community’s vulnerable teens would not have the free resource that leads them to be productive members of society. Instead of desperately trying to find their way at the expense of the community, these youth now have healthy skills to carry with them throughout their adulthood.
