Louisville Skating Academy Announces Official Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Partnership

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (PRWEB) August 19, 2019

ProRehab Louisville and Dr. Stacie Grossfeld have partnered with Louisville Skating Academy (LSA) to prevent on-ice injuries through preventative physical therapy and to access to top-notch sports medical care and sport injury experts for rehabilitation.

“It is vital to have a PT group that understand the physical demands of ice skating, knows the individualized treatment plan, and understands what a triple toe loop is in order to treat the injury effectively and efficiently and ensure a healthy recovery and rehabilitation so skaters can get back to their passion,” said Dr. Stacie Grossfeld, the physician who leads the medical team.

“Louisville Skating Academy is proud to have a long-standing relationship with the physical therapists at ProRehab and Dr. Grossfeld and are excited that all teams will work together to keep our athletes strong, on the ice, and doing what they love,” said Becca Hatch-Purnell, the Skating Director at Louisville Skating Academy.

ProRehab, through its predecessors, has partnered with LSA for more than 10 years in order to provide sport-specific injury treatment as well as preventative education to attempt to subvert injuries before they happen.

“This sport is an incredible way to demonstrate eloquence and grace while promoting healthy living and expression through the arts. Ice-skating is a high-skill sport which also means it is high-risk,” said Dr. Ed Foring, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, and Clinic Director with the ProRehab Prospect Clinic.

Grossfeld is a local orthopedic surgeon who has a large sports medicine practice geared towards treating athletes. Due to the nature of sports injuries, athletes need quick diagnosis and treatment – with this partnership, LSA members will always have access to the care they need as well as the ability to escalate their care if deemed necessary by their physical therapist.

Authorized Retailer for Eminence Organic Skin Care, Changes Name from ‘EminenStore.com’ to ‘EmStore.com’

PORT SAINT LUCIE, Fla. (PRWEB) August 19, 2019

Nearly seven years after the launch of ‘EminenStore.com’, an online platform selling Eminence Organic Skin Care products, the authorized retailer will change its corporate name to ‘EmStore.com’.

In 2009, EmStore.com’s President and CEO, Darlene DeVries, was a practicing esthetician in Florida providing Eminence Organic Skin Care facials and treatments. DeVries noticed there was an increasing demand for Eminence Organics products specifically and immediately started working on a more efficient process for her clients to purchase these high-end organic products online. In response to the demand, DeVries succeeded in launching EminenStore.com. This digital platform, coupled with her esthetics expertise, allowed her to consult and address her customers’ skin care concerns, and provided a solution for customers to purchase their favorite Eminence Organics products online.

DeVries’ experienced understanding of her customers’ needs has allowed the company to provide top-tier customer service. Now, in a response to valued feedback, EminenStore.com is proud to debut a new, more user-friendly URL, http://www.emstore.com.

Why ‘EmStore.com’?

DeVries commented, “While the name EminenStore.com is fondly rooted into our business and well known in the industry, we believe the time has come to listen to our devoted customers,” says DeVries. “The new, shorter name enables the user to access the website more easily and provides our store with a unique distinction from the brand, Eminence Organic Skin Care.”

“We believe in building relationships with our consumers to provide an intimate overall shopping and consultative experience. This will allow them to know that we are their resource for online purchases, and we want to support them in their skin care journey to achieve the best results possible,” states DeVries.

What EmStore.com Wants You to Know

More great news? DeVries states “Our name may have changed but our clients will receive the same fast, reliable, user-friendly experience that everyone expects from us – and we are devoted to innovating and enhancing our services year after year.”

Sustainable Activewear Brand Girlfriend Collective Launches New Recycle.Reuse.ReGirlfriend. Circular Sourcing Apparel Platform

PR Newswire

SEATTLE, Aug. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Sustainable activewear brand Girlfriend Collective is proud to introduce the first circular sourcing apparel platform of its kind in the activewear industry: Recycle. Reuse. ReGirlfriend. The initiative pioneers the latest steps to fight textile waste, as it collects old Girlfriend Collective Compressive leggings, bras and shorts and upcycles them into new pieces that can be worn again and again … and again.

This activewear industry-first program encourages Girlfriend Collective customers to close the loop. 

Girlfriend Collective currently upcycles single-use plastic into leggings that can be worn again in an entirely new form as a second, third, fourth, etc., life piece of apparel. The brand is bringing this effort to life by working closely with a partner facility in North Carolina to close the loop from a recycling standpoint and by encouraging consumers to send in their old Compressive pieces to be upcycled into new Girlfriend pieces in exchange for a $15 store credit they can use for future orders.

“Closing the loop and making your pieces completely renewable is the holy grail for clothing — we believe this is the future,” says Quang Dinh, co-founder of Girlfriend Collective. “We want to upcycle water bottles and recycle clothes. We upcycle single-use water bottles into clothing you can reuse and wear for years — now we’re going to be able to recycle that clothing into new clothes.”
