1 Moments before employees were admitted to this years Wellness Expo, the participants prepared themselves and their booths for a very busy and fun day ahead!
2 Here I am talking to the reps at the Intergetics booth. This is the company that makes my wonderful line of supplements, Martha Stewart Essentials - www.marthastewartessentials.com Everyone who visited the booth was invited to take a complementary bottle of any supplement they desired.
3 There are 6 supplements in all: Women's Multivitamin, Digestive Health, Menopause Support, Graceful Aging, Hair, Skin & Nails, and Bone Support. The Hair, Skin & Nails was the most popular.
4 Carl Germano is the Chief Science Officer at Intergetics. He worked with me directly to develop the line, which is now available across the US at Walgreens and Hy-Vee.
5 The inclusion of my new supplement line generated lots of positive excitement, interest, and feedback. Thank you Intergenics for attending our wellness expo this year!
6 The very popular Spa Chicks returned this year with their highly trained staff of professional masseuses. Within 1 hour they were fully booked for the afternoon! http://www.spachicksonthego.com
7 They offer a nice variety of massages, based on the customer's needs. This person is getting a relaxing head massage.
8 This employee requested a back massage.
9 A shoulder massage
10 And my expert crafter and stylist, Anduin Havens, requested an invigorating hand massage.
11 Morgan Kassel in Sales also requested a hand massage.
12 Morgan does a lot of typing on her computer, which can cause fatigue in her hands. The Spa Chicks pro knew exactly what to do.
13 They integrate a variety of organic lotions and oils in their massage therapies.
14 We decided to bring our "Good Things" Crane Game to the Wellness Expo this year for a little entertainment between booth hopping.
15 All you need is a coin to play. But there was a limit of 1 coin per person, so you had to make it count!
16 Of course, the only coins the "Good Things" Crand Game machine will take are Martha Stewart Good Things coins!
17 Samantha Perlman was one of the first to give it a try! Her concentration level was focused - so was the concentration of the onlookers.
18 She moved the joystick carefully over the pool of prizes.
19 And Samantha is a winner!!
20 Martha Stewart glitter!
21 There were so many winners, like Denise Silverberg in the Weddings department.
22 Some could not hold back their enthusiasm, like Karissa Bieschke in Product Design. If you look carefully, you can see her excited facial expression on the mirror on the back panel of the machine.
23 Dr. Andy Kirschner of Back Together is a board certified physician who specializes in treatment and prevention of back pain. You can find his very informative and helpful book here. http://goo.gl/df7rcG
24 Raylene Salthouse in Ad Sales described her shoulder problems to Dr. Kirschner. He knew right away how to address the issue.

27 Milena Kozhin of D'Vida Health Bar (http://www.dvidahealth.com/index.html) served very healthy, all-natural, delicious fruit based smoothies. She's pictured here with her general manager Gezel Frederick, on the left.
28 Milena's main goal was to provide a low calorie, low glycemic, high fiber smoothie. Pictured here is her original base formula. Just add water, ice and blend. You can also add fresh fruit as desired.
29 Due to the huge success of her original formula, Milena developed 3 more flavors with the original base as the main ingredient - Strawberry+Banana, which has fat trimming properties, Banana+Peanut Butter, and Pineapple+Coconut which is multi-vitamin rich. All-natural ingredients only and very delicious!
30 She made fresh sample-size smoothies for everyone in attendance. Pictured here is the Strawberry+Banana.
31 The most popular flavor was the chocolate, peanut butter, banana smoothie.
32 It's truly refreshing and delicious!
33 Our company uses Oxford, United Healthcare for our health insurance. They were on hand to answer any questions anyone had about our health coverage.
