Gyms often see a rush of newcomers after the New Year, but they aren’t the only health organization that benefits from New Year’s Resolutions.
Betsy Rabold, owner of My Father’s Garden, 106 N Union St., said she sees an increase in clients during the winter months as well, specifically after January.
“People are more excited about trying to be healthy in January than they are in December,” Rabold said. “Then with spring, people are feeling more like getting outside and feeling like they want to do some other things to make themselves happy because its nicer outside.”
Rabold was a registered nurse for more than 30 years before she experienced a serious illness, that when treated with chemotherapy, hurt her body. Through the remedies she promotes, she was able to heal.
My Father’s Garden offers a storefront with assorted ailment remedies such as oils. But Rabold also offers services she said not many know of.
“I work with the design of the body and find out what’s out of balance and help put it back in either through nutrition, body work, supplements, detox foot bath, infrared sauna or others,” she said. “It would be wonderful to have folks know what goes on in here, most people that come in don’t realize what all we do. We have all these treatment modalities.”
The business will be turning 2 years old March 15, and Rabold said that would be the perfect time for new clients to make an appearance, as hours of operation will be prolonged.
“It’s wonderful to think I can go and live out my passion, and to help people at the same time is more than I could have ever hoped for,” she said.
