Faith Escudero didn?t just wake up one day and decide to become a life coach. She spent years studying mental health, behavior analysis, and education, in the process acquiring licensing as a counselor, school psychologist, and special-education teacher. Today these experiences translate into Faith's leading-edge approach to life coaching, which involves building awareness of the scientific principles that individuals use during each moment to create their perspective?whether it's happiness or stress. Her anger- and stress-reduction classes, for instance, make it clear how to live with a calm, clear mind as coworkers take credit for your work or the Nobel Committee spells your name wrong. While a majority of Faith's seminars are held in her office in Haverhill, she also travels to her client?s location, as when she leads ?workplace wellness classes.?
Hypnotherapy runs in Rebekah DeMartino's family. She spent her childhood watching her grandfather guide clients to well-being through hypnotherapy—a task to which he devoted 35 years of his life. Today, the certified hypnotherapist honors her grandfather at her hypnotherapy practice, Able Success Hypnosis. Through self-improvement and recreational hypnotherapy, she decimates barriers that keep her clients from wellness. Self-improvement hypnosis can preempt the subconscious precursors to poor behaviors, such as smoking or overeating, or simply ease anxiety. Recreational hypnosis, on the other hand, exists solely for fun, allowing clients to relive memories, unearth the secrets of past lives, or reflect on a deeper level.

Opened in 1900, Symphony Hall was the first auditorium designed in accordance with scientifically derived acoustic principle, sloping inward to help focus the sound of the orchestra's stirring string renditions.
The attentive staff at Wellness Massage & Skincare will tantalize with a choice of three facials: the Autumn Renewal Pumpkin, Tropical Papaya, or Dead Sea Mud.

Additionally, today's deal includes a $25 credit toward one of two additional facials—Vitamin C Age or Ultimate Stone—during a future visit.

To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
