July 6, 2018 – GALENA, Illinois — Poopsie’s, the funky, fun retailer in Galena’s historic Main Street shopping district, celebrated a two-year anniversary of its partnership with Pinch Me Therapy Dough.

Pinch Me Therapy Dough was designed by Nancy Rothner, a clinical hypnotherapist who specializes in stress reduction. It’s a squishable compound that relieves the senses using texture, color and scent.

Depression and anxiety are two major health crises. More than 40 million people 18 and older suffer from anxiety disorders, and 6.5 million 13- to 18-year-olds are affected as well, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.

Alana Turner, owner of Poopsie’s since 2010, knows that a store has to stay ahead of trends to compete in the global marketplace. She began researching mindfulness several years ago.

“Poopsie’s sought out Pinch Me Therapy Dough. We thrive on finding great partnerships in order to bring products packed with benefits perfect for their customers. Pinch Me Therapy Dough is designed to help someone de-stress through the senses naturally. It allows one to refocus, rebalance and restore.”

Poopsie’s offers Pinch Me Therapy Dough in nine scents: sun, grapefruit, citrus, melon, ginger, tropics, spa, beach and ocean. You can buy them at www.poopsies.com.

Poopsie’s has been the gateway store of Main Street for more than 25 years. Fodor’s Travel Guides and the Huffington Post have listed Galena’s Main Street as one of America’s best Main Streets.
