OPEN HOUSE

Opening Soon: Global Pointe Senior Living A UNIQUE LUXURY BOUTIQUE-STYLE SENIOR CARE FACILITY

ARTICLE KASSANDRA MIRANOWSKI PHOTOGRAPHY LESLIE PLESSER

Eden Prairie Lifestyle | November 2019


FINDING THE PERFECT HOME FOR A SENIOR IS NEVER AN EASY TASK. Leaving behind a home with many memories and moving to a simpler lifestyle with built-in care can be a very emotional move for not only the individual but their family as well. Mark Globus, a native Minnesotan, encountered this difficult path as he looked for a place to transition his mother of 85 from her single-family house to a new home for the next stage in her life. He was looking for the right combination of an upscale luxury building with great amenities and programs but was unable to find the right fit for his mother. Every place they toured wasn’t quite checking all of the boxes they were hoping for, and they didn’t feel like home. Mark decided it was time to create the perfect space he envisioned for not only his mother but other families in the same situation. Partnering with SilverCrest Properties, this ten-year idea grew into a reality, and Global Pointe Senior Living became a very personal project for Mark. “Seniors are so important to the community," Mark says. "They’re the collective memory of the community, city and society. One of our goals at Global Pointe is to really listen to the needs of our residents and offer them a great lifestyle.” Having grown up in the area, Mark knew that the large vacant lot situated right on the northwest corner of Highway  100 and I-394, just four minutes from downtown Minneapolis, would be the perfect area for a new luxury senior living building. "The key to visiting someone is having them live in a close, central location," Mark says. "The closeness and proximity factor is so important to be able to make visits happen on a regular basis.” The idea behind this unique care facility was to keep it small and have a boutique feeling along with a wide array of amenities. It is a place that residents feel good to come home to while not having to give up any luxuries that they are accustomed to. “At Global Pointe, we are trying to create an excitement factor and comfort factor where seniors don’t feel as if it’s a sacrifice to make the Photography Tushie Montgomery Architects

OK, WHAT’S THE CATCH? A

COLLABORATIVE

DIVORCE—

WHAT’S THE CATCH? “It’s a question I get once in a while, usually before I explain how collaborative divorce works,” attorney Steve Yasgur says, “and, actually, there is a ‘catch,’ if you want to call it that. And it’s simply that it’s harder for most people to wage peace than war.” “Most of the prospective clients that consult me, honestly, don’t know what they don’t know.  The biggest part of my job is to educate, to provide information. If couples knew that courts really don’t address the disrespect, the failed expectations, in some cases the betrayals, they wouldn’t come to me expecting I could get them ‘payback’ for those very real hurts.” His actual role, Steve explains, is more challenging—and more rewarding! He notes that divorce, in a very real sense, is family planning under very tough circumstances. 18

Eden Prairie Lifestyle | November 2019

EDEN PRAIRIE LAWYER’S DIVORCE PROCESS SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE


So, how do you do that? First, he says, a couple has to listen to each other.  If they are to agree on what their divorce decree says, each of them will have important information for the other, and it’s a necessity to hear what their spouse says as information and not the start of an argument. Unfortunately, our culture today is frequently conflicted, so we often assume the first words we hear are laying the groundwork for criticism and argument. How do you avoid that? Steve supports his clients with neutral professionals, such as a neutral coach. Coaches are all licensed psychologists who can point out how a couple’s communication style can be counterproductive. They can teach couples how to communicate neutrally or noncritically so that the listener actually hears the information. His “opposing counsel” will be another lawyer who has been trained in collaboration and is likely to be someone Steve has handled dozens of cases with, knows and trusts. If the couple is unsuccessful in reaching a final agreement, Steve and his colleagues must withdraw and cannot represent the clients in court.   Steve says the highest priority of family court is guarding the children’s best interests. “We know that parents almost always have better information about that than even the best judges,” he says. When parents are supported by a licensed psychologist (separate from the coach) whose practice focuses on child development issues, they can do a better job of arranging their children’s futures and providing for their actual needs. They use neutral certified divorce financial analysts—a financial industry certification—to lay out the couple’s debts and assets and show them any options they might have for dividing those. The goal is to make the family resources go as far as possible. “My clients typically are shocked to learn they have complete legal authority to make their own decisions,” Steve says. “Most people think the divorce statute is a set of orders that have to be followed, regardless. I think family court judges would agree with me that this statute really is a safety net the legislature puts under couples who can’t come up with their own answers. When push comes to shove, and a judge must decide, ... the statute instructs them how to make that decision.  They have real discretion in some of these areas, but in others, they do not.” And finally, the central operating principle Steve works with is to make the entire experience a problem-solving exercise, rather than a “me against you” contest. You still have a family to take care of, he says, and it’s a lot easier to do it in peacetime than during war.

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

CRYOTHERAPY GOES MAINSTREAM ARTICLE MIKE MOHN THERE’S A NEW OPTION IN TOWN FOR BODIES NEEDING A LITTLE TLC: WHOLEBODY CRYOTHERAPY AT THE ZONE BY LIFE TIME IN EDEN PRAIRIE. You might ask, “What is whole-body cryotherapy?” The process involves stepping into a cryotherapy chamber known as a “cryosauna,” which exposes the body to extremely low temperatures in the form of dry vapor for a period of up to three minutes. During your cryotherapy session, your skin’s surface temperature drops somewhere between 20 F and 40  F, triggering the “cryo effect”—a distress signal sent to your brain—which is your body’s natural response to a rapid drop in the skin’s surface temperature. 

20

Eden Prairie Lifestyle | November 2019


Your body goes into survival mode in response to the distress signal, redirecting the blood near the surface of your skin toward your core to keep it warm. As blood flows toward your core, toxins are excreted, and your blood becomes enriched with anti-inflammatory proteins, red blood cells, white blood cells, enzymes  and endorphins. After your session is complete, your skin temperature rises, moving you from survival to recovery mode, where freshly oxygenated and nutrient-enriched blood is recirculated to the rest of your body. Cryotherapy boasts benefits to include pain reduction, reduced inflammation, improved circulation, faster recovery from injury, elevated mood, reduced anxiety, chronic pain relief and even calorie loss.   Ice baths, which have been used for decades, offer similar benefits, but they are freezing cold—literally. An ice bath lasts for up to 20 minutes and freezes your tissues while also cooling your body’s core temperature. Warming up from an ice bath can take hours. Whole-body cryotherapy triggers your body’s natural healing mechanisms without the penetrating cold in a brief 2-3-minute session. The result is a more comfortable healing experience. Cryotherapy is also very safe. The Zone’s cryosauna is manufactured by Impact Cryotherapy, known for its safety and innovation. Impact Cryotherapy’s octagon chamber efficiently distributes cold nitrogen vapor, allowing the interior chamber temperature to reach desired temperature levels safely and quickly. Spa Coordinators at The Zone are trained and certified as cryotherapy technicians through Impact Cryotherapy. Before someone enters the cryosauna at The Zone, a spa coordinator performs a safety check. Clients are given a robe, a thick pair of cotton socks, neoprene booties to wear over the socks  and a pair of soft, fleece gloves for protection from the cold temperatures. Changing rooms are provided for clients to get “geared up” for their session. Skin temperatures  are measured before and after each CONTINUED >

session to accurately record the skin’s drop in temperature. The entire process from start to finish takes less than 10 minutes. For optimal results, a minimum of two weekly sessions is recommended. While cryotherapy has been widely used in Europe, it is rapidly becoming more mainstream in the U.S. Kobe Bryant was one of the first athletes to use cryotherapy to assist in healing from knee surgeries and post-game recovery. Cryotherapy is fairly common today, and collegiate and professional teams from a range of sports are replacing their dated ice baths with whole-body cryosaunas. Celebrities such as Jessica Alba and Jennifer Aniston use cryotherapy for anti-aging properties, and the technology is becoming common in spas and recovery centers such as The Zone. When you visit The Zone, you can read testimonials from many satisfied customers who say the treatments have helped them with pain management, inflammation reduction and  faster recovery from their workouts. What’s the cost? The Zone offers multiple options to accommodate a variety of needs. Although Life Time Fitness members receive preferred pricing, you do not have to be a Life Time Fitness member to use the services at The Zone. A single cryotherapy treatment session for Life Time 22

members or members of The Zone is $35, and for nonmembers, it is $45. Monthly plans are available that include unlimited cryotherapy and compression therapy. Multiple session packages can also be purchased to substantially reduce per-session cost. There may be other promotions available, so be sure to check when you call or visit. With an equal split between men and women, anyone between 13 and 80 years of age is a candidate for cryotherapy. Those who want to better manage pain or inflammation—whether after a workout, surgery or following a soft tissue injury—or want to experience the other benefits mentioned above, should give it a try.  The Zone’s spa and recovery studio can be found near the intersection of Highway 212 and Prairie Center Drive. The Zone has a team of well-trained and certified employees who are committed to helping you live a healthy and happy life. The Zone features several recovery therapies, including whole-body cryotherapy and NormaTec compression therapy, as well as an extensive selection of massage treatments and skin care services such as facials and waxing. A gift certificate is an ideal gift for the upcoming holiday season and is sure to be appreciated.

Eden Prairie Lifestyle | November 2019


PUMPKIN SPICE, APPLE CINNAMON AND A HOT CUP OF COCOA. Fall is all about getting warm and comfy as a chill hits the air—preparing yourself for winter, and cherishing those final moments of summer. As the nights grow longer, we’re embracing the Scandinavian secret of hygge by creating a space that emphasizes simple pleasures and finding joy in everyday moments—even when the weather is dreary. A burnt orange adirondack rug and woodland pillow set a ‘cozy cabin’ mood. Wicker baskets filled with apples and gourds are a reminder of the importance of the harvest, and a fun way to help teach young kids about the changing of the seasons. During this transitional time, light wood, fluffy blankets and scented candles beckon crisp autumn evenings, while a vase of fresh flowers—particularly mums—are an ode to the bright, sunny days we’re not quite ready to give up yet.

GOOD SLEEP EQUALS GOOD HEALTH It’s estimated that sleep issues affect 40 million people. Lack of sleep can contribute to medical conditions such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. These habits can help you get a better night’s rest: PREPARE YOUR BODY • Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol for at least six hours before sleep. • Get regular exercise, but not too close to bedtime. • Avoid late heavy meals. • Go to sleep and wake up around the same time. PREPARE YOUR MIND • Avoid stressful television programs before bedtime. • Make a list of home and work to-do’s so your mind doesn’t have to worry about them. • Don’t stay in bed for more than 15 minutes if you can’t fall asleep. Get up and perform a non-stimulating activity like reading. • Practice self-hypnosis to easily and effortlessly fall asleep. PREPARE YOUR ENVIRONMENT • Darken your bedroom. • Remove distractions. Turn away the clock, turn off phone chimes. • Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillow. As you become more relaxed before going to sleep, fewer neurons fire in your brain, creating an increase in Alpha and Theta brain waves. Using self-hypnosis before going to sleep stimulates Alpha and Theta brain waves. Learn how to purposely use this natural state of mind and experience a better quality night’s sleep today by calling for an appointment at 952-934-1315!

Expecting a new puppy or kitten in the household? Here are the essentials

Your new kitten or puppy is about to enter a completely new situation. The comfort of their mother and siblings will be replaced with unfamiliar sights and sounds, and their breeder or carer has been suddenly replaced by someone new. For these reasons you need to ensure you make the transition as stress free as possible by stocking up on necessary provisions. Your shopping list should include: • Water and food bowls • Grooming equipment (especially if you have a breed that requires regular upkeep) • Bedding • A suitable crate or carrier to bring them home (some people also use a cardboard box which can be just as effective) • Toys (suitable for puppies or kittens) • Collar and leash • ID tag • Treats • A baby gate or pen (an essential for puppies) • A litter tray and scratching post for kittens
