jectables, botox injections, and more – which typically aren't found outside larger cities. Zeltinger, a New Rockford native and NR-S graduate, said the idea to bring an aesthetic and wellness business to Carrington began one night last November when a friend brought up the idea at a get-together. The next day they were scheduling their certification training courses and within two weeks were completing their first training in Minneapolis. Now, they're excited to finally provide their services to the local community. One of those services, IV therapy, can help patrons by delivering nutrients and hydration directly into the bloodstream for immediate absorption and use by the body. Vitamin injectables can improve immune health, boost energy levels and eliminate toxins. Chemical peel treatments, meanwhile, are designed to lift pigment, remove sun damage, alleviate acne and scarring and fight fine lines and wrinkles. Zeltinger added, "One other thing we're offering is weight loss injections. Working in family practice, I understand the importance and the role that obesity plays in all the different chronic diseases. "This kind of gives me an avenue to hopefully help patients a little better in focusing on weight loss options, through more natural things and take my experience and expertise in the family practice world to kind of help patients in an area that sometimes I'm limited in, in a corporate world." "Honestly, just being able to bring some services that aren't currently available in our community," said van Bedaf about what she's looking forward to with the new business, "just so people don't have to travel and go outside of the Carrington-New Rockford area." "My focus is on helping people feel like their most beautiful self," added Zeltinger. "Just helping people gain some confidence, whether it be through relaxing some wrinkles in their face, or helping them be more healthy and lose weight, or helping them feel better with some of our vitamins and IV infusions." Both Zeltinger and van Bedaf are experienced in the medical field. Zeltinger, a native of New Rockford, has worked as a registered nurse at Essentia Health in Fargo for five years and currently works as a family health practitioner at CHI St. Alexius Health in Carrington. Meanwhile, van Bedaf has done a year of postpartum at a family birthing unit in Grand Forks and for the past four years has been at CHI St. Alexius Health as a registered nurse doing medical-surgery and emergency department nursing. Zeltinger and van Bedaf will continue doing their current jobs, but are looking forward to providing additional services through their new business whenever possible.
