Stones Institute founder Daryl Stones, a member of Mensa and National Guild of Hypnotists practitioner, tailors hypnotherapy sessions to unearth and extinguish the causes of various physical and mental ailments, such as anxiety, panic attacks, and smoking addictions. Each personalized 50-minute session delves into the underlying reasons behind these afflictions, combating problems with supportive reinforcement to uproot paralyzing phobias, confidence issues, Cold War?sleeper-cell triggers, and sleep disorders that stand in the way of comfortable living. Sessions often spill past the 50-minute mark as Daryl customizes each subconscious exploration to the needs of her clients. Stones Institute also offers energywork and healing services, including reiki.
Certified hypnotherapist Lynne Nozicka facilitates wellness by helping clients overcome self-destructive inner monologues and behaviors. Her treatments address a wide breadth of issues, including struggles with weight, smoking, and anxiety.
Every appointment begins with a conversation that focuses on the habits, hang-ups, and issues that each individual wants to target. Nozicka then helps clients to envision their ideal, healthful selves before commencing hypnosis sessions that excavate negative thoughts hidden in the subconscious and replace them with adorable motivational cat posters. To supplement treatment plans, Lynne offers suggestions for permanent lifestyle changes.
A Choice for Life's team of natural health managers, colon therapists, and nutrition consultants combines its healing arts to personalize plans for wellness within a 2,700-square-foot facility. Five-day juice cleanses flush toxic vestiges of processed food, drugs, alcohol, and swallowed glow sticks with herbal- and protein-based potables or supplements augmented by carefully selected fruits, veggies, or meats. FDA-approved colon-hydrotherapy equipment focuses on freeing the digestive tract of built-up waste with 10–20 gallons of water channeled gently into undercarriages after flowing through an antibacterial UV-filtration device. Health experts also completely makeover lifestyles as they mold new regimes around a medicinal philosophy that combines western practices with holistic methods and proper nutrition. A Choice for Life makes use of modern technology to diagnose ailments, such as employing a Xyto Compass hand scanner to pinpoint deficiencies that throw off internal pH balances faster than chugging a beaker of hydrochloric acid.
AcuBalance Wellness Center is the longtime dream of friends and college mates Ausra Januseviciute and Vera Kulezic. While interning together, the two friends learned they shared the same passion not only for acupuncture, but also for other facets of holistic healing and Eastern philosophy. The central tenet of this philosophy, according to Ausra, is to "discover the root cause" of ailments rather than adhering to the Western practice of soothing away symptoms by ingesting medicine or Ella Fitzgerald's throw pillows.
Each client undergoes a thorough consultation, which the practitioner uses to develop an individualized treatment plan. These treatments are designed to combat maladies ranging from chronic headaches and digestive issues to anxiety and depression. Sessions take place either in private rooms filled with soothing music and aromatic incense, or in the main treatment room, which re-creates the community acupuncture sessions in China with five reclining chairs.
Keep It Young’s professional, certified aestheticians act as comfort concierges, summoning their experience and a philosophy of treating spa services as a craft to curate custom, soothing experiences for every client.

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.
