Businesses want to keep people warm
EAGLE RIVER - People can get frostbite and hypothermia in just a short amount of time.

So it's important to stay warm. But not everyone can afford heat.

Area businesses understand.

They're opening their doors to keep people OUT of the cold.

Trig's and Walmart will stay open 24 hours in Rhinelander, Minocqua and Eagle River.

Howard Young Medical Center in Woodruff and Ministry Eagle River Memorial Hospital will keep their doors open too.

The businesses believe it's important to look out for community members.

"It's great for the community. People feel that they can come here. Even if they need to more than warm up," said Trig's supervisor, Andy Jensen.

"We can carry out their groceries for them when they drive up. They can get some hot food here. It's nice that people know we care."

Trig's wants to be sure their customers are as comfortable as possible.

They're even expanding their space to accommodate people.

"Normally we have the upstairs closed, but we're going to leave it open the next couple nights so people can come up, relax and warm up a little." Jensen said.

Lake of the Torches Resort Casino and the Lac du Flambeau Tribal Natural Resources building will stay open during business hours.

The Tribal Natural Resource building will be open 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday.

The Lake of the Torches Resort Casino opened their doors Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

RHINELANDER - Nicole Hanse has a passion for health and she took a risk on it.

"I just kind of put a business out there," said Hanse.

That business started two years ago. But it wasn't just a love for wellness that motivated the start of a career in holistic living.

"I have Celiac Disease," Hanse said.

It's a disease that causes migraines, fatigue, and can keep her body from getting the nutrition she needs.

So Hanse decided to help everyone stay healthy after she learned how to help keep her health in good form. That's by proper diet, exercise, and the use of chemical free products like essential oils.

"Products that they can use in the home to reduce the toxic load for personal care products," she continued.

Even with four years of using and distributing Young Living Essential Oils, people still have their doubts on what she does.

"A lot of people don't know what health coaching is or people are just kind of apprehensive," Hanse said.

But Kristal Blomberg is one person who wasn't apprehensive about working with Hanse. They've been working together for about a year using essential oils to help their lives.

"I used to get chronic sinus infections and always at the doctors getting prescriptions and stuff," Blomberg said.

As a small Northwoods health and wellness business, Hanse wants to provide people with information they can use to better their lives.

"I want them to be empowered by knowledge and that's simply it," said Hanse.

RHINELANDER - It's easy to slip on ice, skid on roads, or get stuck in the snow.

One thing that also happens is joint pain from common winter activities.

Shoveling snow is one of the biggest problems Rhinelander Chiropractor Dr. Tony Lowenberg sees causing this pain.

He said shoveling snow is a physical activity that can cause excessive stress on the body; especially for people who don't lift heavy often.

"Lifting and the twisting creates wear and tear on their body. Then [people] feel it as pain and then their muscles get tight," said Dr. Lowenberg.

Landscaper Greg Piasecki shovels snow as part of his job.

He said that shoveling snow causes him to have lower back pain. He needs to take pain relievers before and after.

"It's hard on your body if you shovel a lot," Piasecki said.

Dr. Lowenberg said chiropractic care can help prevent pain.

He also recommended stretching beforehand to warm up your body.
