Bare Roots Energy
Owner Jamelle Zablow-Moloney chats about what her business offers.
Q: What would you like people to know about Bare Roots Energy?
JZM: I would love for people to know what energy work, Reiki healing, and meditation can do to heal the mind, heart, body, and soul. So many of us walk around in our daily lives carrying trauma, depression and anxiety symptoms, as well as ailments of the physical body! Energy work is an amazing tool to help us regain control of ourselves and heal all of that pain. Energy healing and meditation alike are exemplary modalities to dive into when your heart is aching, when you're stuck and don't know where else to turn, when you want to seek alternative healing outside of the doctor's office, and when your body needs a boost and reset.
Q: Do you consult with people first to find the best method to meet their needs?
JZM: Absolutely. Before beginning all of my treatment and meditation coaching sessions, I check in with my clients to get an understanding of their immediate and long-term goals for healing. This allows our sessions to have a greater impact on the whole life and body. One of my favorite parts about this job is creating individualized plans for those taking action in their healing and growing journeys, and I have an overflow of tools that I pull from to make this happen.
Q: What is the most common service people come to Bare Roots Energy for?
JZM: Reiki and healing through the Crystalline Consciousness Technique. Both of these energy modalities are the most popular purchases, both online and for in-person treatments. Engaging in regular energy healings has been transformational for myself, my family, and my clients alike.
Head and Heart Health and Wellness
Medical director Megan Feighny, APRN-C, RYT-200 set up Heat and Heart in her home. Here she explains the services offered.
Q: How long has H&H been in business?
MF: We are a very new business to Lawrence. We opened in July 2023, so are still definitely in our infancy as a local business.
Q: Can you describe your typical client?
MF: The typical aesthetic and wellness client is someone who places a premium on comprehensive well-being. Our clientele spans diverse demographics, reflecting a shared commitment to self-care and a proactive approach to health.
In our community, there's a shared appreciation for the holistic philosophy that underpins our services. They aren't merely seeking quick fixes; instead, they are on a journey to invest in long-term health and vitality. Whether it's revitalizing aesthetic treatments, personalized wellness plans, or exploring the realms of regenerative and functional medicine, our clients embrace the idea that self-care is an ongoing, evolving process.
What sets our clientele apart is their desire for a more accessible and affordable approach to health and wellness. They value the convenience of telemedicine options and the flexibility in scheduling that our home-based clinic offers. This forward-thinking mindset aligns seamlessly with our commitment to breaking down barriers and making transformative health and wellness services available to a diverse and inclusive community.
Q: What is your most popular service?
MF: Hands down, our most sought-after service is injectable neuromodulators, such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. We offer "botox parties" that allow our clients to add a fun element to their events and give them the opportunity to enjoy their health and wellness journey with friends. Whether it's softening dynamic wrinkles, addressing crow's feet, or achieving a more relaxed and youthful facial expression, injectable neuromodulators offer versatile solutions tailored to individual aesthetic goals.
Channels of Healing
Sabrina Channel is not only a massage therapist, but also a life coach and trained in breath and energy work. Here she shares the story behind her business.
Q: Your last name is Channel, but is there more meaning behind the name of the business?
SC: Sure, it’s for all the all the paths toward healing I offer. I do a lot of different things from hands-off body work to deep working in the spinal cord, craniosacral work or neural work, which is amazing. I'm currently getting trained in breathwork. I'm a Reiki master, but then I also work with everything from relaxation to real structural work I do neuromuscular work as well as myofascial release, and all these different techniques that are pretty in-depth for how they can approach the body and how they can empower people to heal.
Q: Who are your typical clients and why do they come to you?
SC: My demographic tends to be 83 percent female and 16 percent male. A lot of people come to see me because I get results. I like challenges and I’ve continued my education based on wanting to be able to solve people’s problems. When people are in pain, I can get some results pretty quickly. If I can't get results, I know that there's a deeper problem and I'm able to help them get the help that they need.
Q: What do you want people to know most about you and what you do?
SC: When they come in, they're in charge. I listen to what they want to do, what their goals are, what's hurting. I listen to their body. And then together we come up with a plan for how to best treat them in that hour and going forward if they need further care. I listen to what they need and then I try to provide that.
CBD of Lawrence
Owner Dustin Hothan, who also works as a pharmacist and graduated from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy in 2008, explains the benefits of CBD.
Q: Explain what CBD is for people who are unfamiliar with it.
DH: Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, and is one of more than 100 cannabinoids that can be extracted from the hemp plant. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of receptors found throughout the body that regulate various functions, including pain, mood, energy metabolism, sleep, and much more. CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid and most federally legal CBD products come from Farm Bill-compliant hemp plants, not marijuana.
Q: What is the biggest misconception people have about CBD?
DH: I think the most common misconception about CBD, or hemp in general, is that it will have psychoactive effects (get you high). CBD, without the presence of an appreciable concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a psychoactive component, will not impair you mentally or physically. A very important distinction between hemp and marijuana is that the hemp plant naturally has less than 0.3 percent THC. Cannabis with a THC content higher than 0.3 percent would be considered marijuana. Although there are many products available with a higher THC content, no CBD-only product will impair you or cause you to fail a drug test.
Q: Why do most people turn to CBD?
DH: The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take in various forms, makes it an appealing treatment option for those seeking an alternative to what they’ve tried in the past. The most common uses of CBD include its potential as an anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, sleep aid, and anxiety relief. CBD has also become extremely popular with pet owners as a way to add comfort for aging pets or simply help calm separation anxiety. Seizure and tremor disorders are another draw to the use of CBD.
