At Hypnosis Delivers, certified hypnotist Mary Sammons helps people overcome their physical or emotional limitations with close to 30 years of experience in hypnosis, family-life education, and counseling. She uses a deeply relaxing process that allows clients to tap into their subconscious mind, addressing issues such as weight loss, addiction, or the inability to walk past a stop sign. Sammons is not only certified as a practitioner; she is also certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists to teach others how to perform hypnosis.
Sculpted through wooded acres of parkland terrain, Silver King Golf Club's 18-hole course unfolds across 6,600 yards of fairways and greens pristine from recent, extensive renovations. Cerulean waters and sand bunkers populated by displaced sunbathers loom throughout the course, offering mild penalties for errant drives and ill-measured approaches. The club keeps its golfers' pin-hunting skills sharp with a driving range and onsite golf lessons while helping players loop the links in style with a pro shop full of form-fitting shirts, sturdy shoes, and bedazzled golf gloves. As clubbers trace powerful drives into the Southern sky, the club's onsite snack bar keeps appetites at bay with cold sports drinks, soft drinks, and light fare.
As the name implies, the certified instructors at Basic Fitness take a no-frills approach to getting clients into shape. Their workouts don't have fancy names. They don't boast cutting-edge fad routines or diets. Instead, they rely on age-old effort, motivating clients through outdoor workouts that change daily. Clients can find themselves running on the beach through thigh-high water, doing pushups in a field, or holding yoga poses in an empty parking lot. The team extends its slenderizing efforts past workout sessions by devising grocery lists filled with healthy and tasty eating options.
The certified instructors at CrossFit Flowood write each "workout of the day" on a whiteboard. More often than not it will read "push-ups," "squats," "dead lifts," or other similarly functional exercise. To help newcomers get up to speed and learn the proper lifting techniques for the exercises, the staff schedules instructional CrossFit on-ramp classes. Even better, in an effort to create a community-focused atmosphere, the facility offers childcare services.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
