Licensed hypnotherapists Shoshanah Thielle and Nancy Mac treat clients in private practices at this wellness center. Each puts her own the unique spin on hypnosis, gently tapping into each client’s subconscious to alleviate ailments such as panic attacks, difficulty quitting smoking, or an inability to be hypnotized. During private sessions, clients lounge in plush recliners as their chosen hypnotherapist induces deep relaxation, working to create a suggestible state.
Dr. Jerry Evans leads a caring crew at Evans Chiropractic Group, drawing from more than 20 years of experience dekinking vertebrae to finesse skeletal structures ailing from work injuries, sports-induced aches, and everyday boo-boos. Spreading the treatments over two visits, the initial session begins with a consultation to discuss problems and pains before the chiropractic exam realigns spines and unspools tightly wound physiques like a yo-yo running away from its shadow. The second appointment provides time to converse about the doctor's findings as well as develop a pain-management game plan, if necessary. A 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage concludes the healing meeting as a trained muscle kneader loosens limbs and fluffs bone cushions for a pillowy soft feel.
Boasting a two-year medical license in massage therapy and experience opening wellness centers overseas, licensed therapist Zakk Newell draws from a large arsenal of modalities, ranging from Swedish to lipomassage, to address each client’s particular need. He could soothe hard-to-reach aches with deep-tissue massage, ease chronic headaches with migraine treatment, or induce healing with reflexology, a form of massage that uses the feet to access different parts of the body. Zakk specializes in workman's compensation and auto injury claims, a rare commodity in Eugene.

Led by founder Sandy Adler, certified Anusara instructor, Freedom Yoga's instructors lead classes throughout the week for both beginners and more advanced students. Instructors tap into their experience, skill, and dedication to help students develop a safe and meaningful yoga practice, searching within themselves and their pupils to align spiritual centers, increase strength, and boost flexibility. Rather than using intense exercises or giant marionette strings to affect the mind and body from the outside, Anusara's poses originate from within the body, using deliberate breath and movement as a form of meditation to hone the mind while helping the body increase its strength and balance.
Whereas many massage practitioners stick to kneading backs and shoulders, Steve Brodsky approaches the healing process by working with the entire body. A certified Breema practitioner, Steve manipulates his clients' arms and legs, moving them into stretches and poses that promote total-body alignment. He also performs Thai massages, as well as therapeutic massages that can help bodies recover from days spent tumbling down steps at the amusement park’s stairway ride.
