Helping the Body heal itself…Greater Cincinnati Natural Health.
Guillermo Caal started his journey on the natural approaches to health when his oldest son was diagnosed with an incurable disease. Exploring alternatives, he became passionately interested in natural ways to improve health, eventually becoming a naturopath. After seeing great results with family and friends, Guillermo opened Greater Cincinnati Natural Health (GCNH) with a deep desire to help the community.
GCNH is a holistic practice, leveraging the body’s amazing capabilities to heal itself by providing natural elements, energies, and balance. The practice is the first in Cincinnati to use Biomagnetism, a leading-edge approach using magnets to balance energies in the body.
When asked what is most meaningful to him, Guillermo answers with uplifting success stories: a two-year-old girl that could not walk and now can…an eight-year-old boy who had anger issues and was expelled from school, who now plays with friends without problems…a young woman who suffered from pain and fatigue, who now has full relief.
GCNH is offering fellow Mason CMC tenants a free introductory session to discuss your specific health needs. Interested parties can set an appointment at gcnaturalhealth.com
We recently celebrated our wonderful tenants with our annual Tenant Appreciation Cookout at Blue Ash! This year, we were feeling tropical, so the theme was luau!
For lunch, we catered in The Beerded Pig pulled pork and their famous mac and cheese! Plus salad, cole slaw, chips, and some sweet treats!
We planned out quite a few games, such as a hula hoop contest, “Guess How Many Office Spaces” game, crossword puzzles about the property and staff, and more! Up for grabs, we had gift baskets filled with goodies, donated by Anne’s Homemade Sweets and Balloons & Beyond. We also had The Beerded Pig gift cards and an office pizza party!
Our very own Digitek Sportswear set up cornhole and brought prizes of their own to hand out, including a polo with space for a custom logo of your choice!
Board games for the guests to play and luau leis covered the tables for each tenant to take with them!
Thank you to all of those that attended and thank you to everyone for being such AMAZING tenants! We appreciate you and your business so much!
We are proud to announce that CMC Properties was voted a Top Workplace of 2019 as well as 2019 Best Workplaces in Ohio by Ohio Business magazine!
We have been in contact with Hoxworth to possibly host a blood drive event at CMC’s The Perfect Small Office-Beckett this fall.

Balloons N Beyond, LLC
No party is complete without balloons! Cindy, the manager of Balloons N Beyond has exactly what you need to make your next party reach that “wow!” factor. They specialize in gift baskets, balloons, and balloon decor (such as arch ways!) Balloons N Beyond has some major clients such as PNG, Cincinnati Public Schools, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, Spectrum Cable, and more!
Cindy has been in the business for over twenty seven years now and has done all types of events! Everything from corporate events to bar mitzvahs, first communions to baby showers!
Cindy originally started working alongside her sister at Balloons and Tunes, a retail based company that was big in Cincinnati. Her parents eventually went on to purchase the company where Cindy slowly evolved it into a warehouse-based decor business. She didn’t like the idea of working the typical “9-5” job while competing with multiple other retail shops. Along with running Balloons N Beyond, Cindy is a certified balloon artist, meaning she continued on her education. She has also taught at seminars in various states! It was a lot of work that involved sleepless nights and missing dinner with family, but she loves what she does!
When planning for events, the more time given the better! Cindy states that for corporate events, she can whip up something amazing with a weeks notice! But for social events (weddings, prom, baby showers, etc.) at least six months in advance is preferred for the best results. Their most busy time of the year is prom and graduation!
When planning for events, it can be hard to plan on what kind of decor you might need. Cindy will meet you at your venue to help you plan accordingly and give suggestions based on what her trained eye thinks would work best!
Over the years, Balloons N Beyond has set up for hundreds of events, but her favorite are always the non-profit organizations. They hold a special place in her heart. Cindy hand chooses which non-profits to work with. Crayons to Computers and Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired being a couple of her favorites!
Cindy likes to deliver her creations herself to her clients when the day of the event comes around. This gives her the ability to make sure everything is set up correctly and if anything goes wrong, she comes prepared with spare balloons.
Cindy doesn’t have much free time, but when she does, she loves spending it with her family! Family is the whole reason she made this business into what it is today. When her son was growing up, she desired a flexible schedule so she could watch him at his sporting events and games. Her family is very supporting of her and her business.
