Guided by family traditions of holistic medicine and respect for nature, Pamela Reynolds helps restore her client's health at Inspired Thru Nature, a natural health center that specializes in colon hydrotherapy. A family history of digestive disorders informs Pamela's practice, and many of her treatments aim to detox the digestive tract and return the body to its natural, healthy state through methods such as ionic footbaths, infrared-sauna sessions, body wraps, and ear candling. Irodology, one of Pamela's signature treatments, uses noninvasive technology to examine the iris, which provides pointed insights into overall health and celebrity-lookalike matches.
The doctor at Terrapin Care Center realigns spines and improves posture with chiropractic biophysics techniques. To relieve pain and increase wellness, he gently nudges vertebrae back into skeleton-straightening position. The doctor also shares tips for corrective exercises, which target the muscles and connective tissues that often become strained over time; the exercises can be performed at home or in front of a live studio audience. In addition to its chiropractic practitioner, Terrapin Care Center houses massage therapists who mollify sinews with smooth strokes that increase circulation, reduce swelling, and ease injuries.
The Terrapin Bar Crawl & Scavenger Hunt sends Maryland fans off to six College Park bars where they enjoy drink specials chased with a healthy dose of friendly competition. Revelers first converge at The Barking Dog, where they prepare for the afternoon’s events with $5 appetizers and $2 rail drinks. Other destinations include Cornerstone Grill and Loft, which offers half-priced burgers and $15 buckets of craft beers, Big Play Sports Bar and Grill, where guests cool off with $3 Coronas after downing $3 shots of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, in addition to Applebee's and R.J. Bentley's. The scavenger hunt begins at 4 p.m., at which time two-person teams race against one another to complete a list of tasks, with the first three teams receiving prizes. Organizers of the event encourage participants to dress up in costumes or Terrapin gear, though, as with an underfunded CSI team, participants must provide their own cameras or phones if they want images of what happened.
Since its founding in 1987, Living Lite's weight-loss program has helped thousands of people slim down quickly and almost effortlessly. Instead of simply telling clients to change their eating habits, its practitioners use hypnotic suggestion to root newer, healthier behaviors in the subconscious minds. Clients find themselves exercising regularly and picking more wholesome foods without ever having to think about it consciously. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not induce amnesia, and participants will usually remember everything that happens during the soothing sessions.
