Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Our 10th Anniversary Edition

As one of countless small businesses adversely affected by the pandemic, it finally feels safe to say that it seems as though we’ve turned the corner in relation to making it through. If the inquires and responses we’ve been experiencing lately are any indication, things are looking up. For this we are exceptionally grateful and optimistic.

Prior to the outbreak we had been up for sale. I had been thinking about a career change for some time and finally decided it was time to explore something new by the end of 2019. We spent a few months marketing the magazine and were in conversation with a few potential buyers just as the pandemic hit. Then, as with so many others, everything in life and business came to a screeching halt.

Here we are, 12 months later, still printing, no longer on the market and having doubled our coverage area by merging with Rhode Island as we bring you this 10th Anniversary Edition. Thanks to the pandemic, we were forced to adapt and grow outside our comfort zone.

Taking classes and attending workshops learning about new  and different  marketing channels to assist our customers with a variety of digital, lead-generating options along the way has been both humbling and rewarding. It has also renewed my love for this work as a conduit of information in the healthy lifestyle community.

In this issue, Amparo David of Dentistry by Dr. David, in Bolton, MA, teaches us about a 50-plus-year-old therapy called Photobiomodulation “that uses non-ionizing light energy to stimulate healing on a cellular level.” Dr. David is currently using this therapy in her practice with dental patients to assist in speeding up the healing process.

If you happen to be one of the millions of workers still plugging in from home or if you have children still home schooling, don’t miss the article from local chiropractor, Catie McArdle, “Ergonomic Help for Virtual Learning.” Dr. McArdle provides helpful tips for keeping the spine healthy at home.

Here’s hoping you get to thoroughly enjoy the outdoors and the bounty of new life it promises with your most favorite humans and non-human creatures this spring.
