Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.
Integrative Wellness Clinic?s staffers draw upon their skills in both Eastern and Western medicine as they treat their patients. For each case, they investigate ailments based on a variety of personal elements?including psychological, physical, social, and spiritual?before offering the best course of action through their holistic services.

Balanced herbal remedies in the form of teas, capsules, and powders may be prescribed to help strengthen immune systems or treat insomnia. Other services include fertility treatment, moxibustion, and holistic nutrition, a program that aims to create personalized diets that reduce the intake of additives and preservatives.
While living in England, Peter Kingsley displayed his hypnotic skills onstage, bending the personalities of volunteers to the delight of his audiences. Today, at his San Antonio office, he uses those same skills, but for a far different purpose: to give his clients more control over their actions and their lives.
At consultations, Kingsley helps clients to identify goals such as losing weight, kicking a cigarette habit, or bending the spoon of a rival while they're slurping soup. Then, during relaxing hypnotherapy sessions, he encourages a connection between mind and body that improves willpower and bolsters confidence. Kingsley also assists athletes seeking to improve their game, helping them to focus on their aim or mentally drown out catcalls from Goodyear-blimp riders.
At Lily Hypnosis, a hypnotherapist targets issues ranging from nail biting to depression and weight loss during hypnotherapy sessions that help define and prevent the triggers of bad habits.

As an acupuncturist and reiki master, Amber Wells brings a deft, gentle touch to her services at Hands on Healing. She discovered her holistic calling in high school after hearing a friend's story about acupuncture helping to relieve headaches. That discovery set her on a path of studies that led her to the islands of Hawaii and all the way back to her Texas roots. At Hands on Healing, she joins a team of practitioners and massage therapists dedicated to helping clients lead happier, healthier lives through relaxing spa services and holistic treatments. These include Reiki, which works to bring energy levels into balance through the power of touch, and holistic heart healing, a specialized treatment designed to replace mental, physical, and emotional stress with peace and happiness.
Laura Ryan?MFT-A and certified hypnotherapist with more than a decade of experience?helps her clients transform bad habits into beneficial behaviors by granting them access to their subconscious mind. Her sessions use elements of meditation and guided imagery to lull patients into deep states of relaxation that they experience while remaining awake and aware. This state allows them to focus on aspects of their lives that they want to modify, eventually overcoming the subconscious blockers that have prevented them from making these changes. Laura can help people conquer the psychological addiction of smoking, reduce their daily stress, or cease a variety of other unwanted behaviors, such as biting their nails or paying for groceries with exact change.
