Though she became a hypnotherapist to beat smoking, Katie Evans soon realized that her goal was a half-measure. She recognized a potential for weight loss in hypnosis that she hadn't seen in her several dieting attempts, which had all petered out due to lack of motivation. By harnessing the power of suggestion, she established a program that works by treating clients from within the subconscious, rather than by trying to dictate their actions from the outside.
The Living Lite weight-loss program in the Baltimore area is now run by nurse practitioner Sue Ouellette, a successful user of the program who uses her 35 years of experience and a humorous style to help other students. In doing so, the program strives to adjust how participants view and plan their meals. The soothing hypnosis sessions combat resigned attitudes and familiar cravings, aiming to replace them with confidence and an intuitive preference for wholesome foods. The seminars also serve to debunk popular myths about hypnotherapy, including that it causes amnesia or that it was invented by the first grandfather clock. The center's catalog of stress-reducing CDs endeavors to help smokers, expectant mothers, and those suffering from insomnia as well.
The staff of medical professionals at Katzen Eye Group, which first opened its doors in 1968, brings blurry vision into focus at four locations in Baltimore, Abingdon, Lutherville, and Rosedale. Attentive physicians peer into peepers of all ages as they administer comprehensive exams, outfit patients with prescription glasses, and help prevent diseases such as glaucoma. Lasik surgery can correct one's distance vision. Cataract surgery, which replaces one's cloudy natural lens with a clear implantable lens is also performed at Katzen Eye Group. Additionally, a staff of aesthetic professionals beautify bodies through services including skincare and cosmetic laser treatments, which can eliminate wrinkles around the eyes more effectively than staring at a jar of cold cream.
Straighter teeth, whiter smiles, and vanished wrinkles are just a few of the potential benefits of visiting Abingdon Family Dentistry, which has served its community for more than three decades. Dr. Modiri calls upon her years of training in the fields of dental work and facial aesthetics to help her clients achieve their ideal smiles, add youthfulness to their faces, and escape jaw pain caused by TMJ or constantly being surprised. In addition to traditional dental and aesthetic care, the office's staff also performs sedation dentistry, which allows patients who have a chronic fear of dental work to sleep through it all.
The trainers at Get Fit Boot Camp of Harford County mold athletes. They work with clients seeking many different things, whether it's to fearlessly don a bathing suit and head to the beach or fearlessly tackle opponents in a college football game. To get their charges ready, they use a combination of classic calisthenics and bodyweight resistance exercises—pushups are featured heavily—mixed with interval and strength training. Outside of boot camps, they help their athletes train specific abilities, such as running speed, jump height, or the ability to flex triceps in the most attractive manner.
