Holistic Health Practitioners Join Forces

MARQUETTE- There is a recent addition to the health care community in the form of a collective. Lake Superior Community Partnership recently teamed up with Trailhead Holistic Health Collective (THHC) for a ribbon cutting to celebrate its grand opening. THHC is an ambitious project being undertaken by three individuals: Marc Weinrick of MQT Acupuncture and Bodywork, Carolyn Provencher of Carolyn Provencher Acupuncture and Beth “Dharmini” Robertson of Coldwater Haven Ayurvedic Health and Yoga Therapy.

With the increasing reliance on pharmaceutical intervention to help combat common complaints like low back pain or anxiety, many people have found relief through integrative medicine that can come in the form of acupuncture, yoga therapy, tai chi, clinical bodywork/ massage, herbal medicine and meditation.

Common interest in helping people discover the power and potential of holistic medicine is what brought these individuals together. With more than 30 years of combined experience, Mr. Weinrick, Mrs. Provencher, and Mrs. Robertson have discovered that it is not enough to simply practice a system of integrative medicine as a generalist. Mr. Weinrick says “Just as you may go to your doctor complaining of knee pain, you would likely receive a referral to a specialist for a deeper level of care. Whether that person is a physical therapist, or orthopedic surgeon, they are experts in their field of training.”  Trailhead Holistic Health Collective has fashioned itself into a group of holistic health specialists who each have the individual experience and expertise to provide exceptional care in the field of integrative medicine.

Carolyn Provencher Acupuncture specializes in emotional health and chronic illness such as anxiety, depression, and autoimmune disorders. MQT Acupuncture and Bodywork specializes in musculo skeletal pain and orthopedic disorders like chronic headaches, frozen shoulder, and low back pain. Coldwater Haven Ayurvedic Health and Yoga Therapy practices the traditional medicines of India, where yoga originated. Dharmini describes yoga therapy as “Yoga for people who can’t do yoga in a regular class format. They have experienced trauma, either emotional or physical, and have individual areas of pain that prohibit them from taking a yoga class. I choose specific yogic practices to help facilitate their recovery.”

Trailhead Holistic Health Collective is located at 1055 W. Baraga, Suite C in Marquette.  For more information please visit: trailheadholistic.com or call (906) 251-0339

It’s a redefining of the agency’s role, helping to eliminate the stigma of hospice, and providing specialized care that focuses on treating the family as a whole.

“Lake Superior Hospice has always specialized in hospice services and will continue to do so” according to Sue Kitti, CEO, “However, we see many people who would benefit from services long before receiving a terminal diagnosis, we want to be able to support them earlier in life.” The new Life Care name will reflect several new services offered by the agency.

Specializing in hospice care since 1979, the agency now offers a “Transitions” in-home care program designed for those living with chronic disease or health challenges, an adult day services program, an “Alzheimer’s Café” in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association, and “Dancing with Parkinson’s” in conjunction with the Dance Zone. In addition, the agency’s community bereavement program recently added a “widows-only” grief group. In October, the Lake Superior Life Care & Hospice will host the 2017 Upper Great Lakes Palliative Care and Hospice Conference.

Barrel + Beam Brewery Breaks Ground

Renovations begin at the old Northwoods Supper Club

Marquette, Michigan: Ground officially broke today on a five-month renovation project which will turn the old Northwoods Supper Club into Barrel + Beam, the region’s only brewery solely focused on farmhouse and barrel aged beers.

Approximately 10,000 of the 16,000 square foot building will be renovated into a multi-level tasting room, brewhouse and barrel aging and bottle conditioning area. Once complete, Barrel + Beam will be open to the public on Saturdays and patrons can purchase bottled beer and special pours exclusive to the tasting room, as well as tour the brewery. No food will be made on-site but carry-ins will be encouraged.

Barrel + Beam will brew four brands initially: Biere de Garde, Golden Strong ale, Saison, and Belgian Wit will be bottle-conditioned, as is true to their style. The bottled products will be sold at select retailers in Michigan and Wisconsin, as both states allow self-distribution up to a certain threshold.

“Barrel and Beam is a reflection of my long-standing passion for producing authentic farmhouse and bottle conditioned beers using premium ingredients, many of which will be found right here in Michigan,” said Nick VanCourt, founder and brewer.

Future beer offerings will include additional sour beers and Michigan sourced fruit beers that will spend up to a year aging in oak barrels.

VanCourt, a graduate of the World Brewing Academy, a partnership of Siebel Institute of Brewing Technology in Chicago and Doemens Academy in Munich, Germany, has eight years of professional brewing experience at microbreweries, brewpubs, and production breweries in both Wisconsin and Michigan, most recently, as head brewer of Ore Dock Brewing Company in Marquette.

Fittingly, the traditional style ales will be brewed and bottled in a building that was once the second oldest restaurant in the state and known for its unparalleled quality. The Northwoods Supper Club opened in 1934 and was the host of many first dates, weddings, anniversary dinners and other celebrations before closing its doors over 70 years later.

“We’re thrilled to build our brewery at this historic place,” said Marina Dupler, co-founder. “And we would be honored if many a special occasion was celebrated with a bottle from Barrel + Beam.”

The project is in partnership with U.P. based mBank and utilizes many local firms and contractors including Closner Construction, Wright Electric, United and Integrated Designs. The brewhouse will be designed and built by Quality Tank Solutions, based in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Brewery and construction updates will be posted on the Barrel + Beam Facebook site at www.facebook.com/barrelandbeam.
