The smooth, black basalt traditionally used in hot stone massage has something in common with spa owner Mahealani Trepinski's career: they were both forged in Hawaii. But while these rocks were born in the island chain's famous lava flows, Trepinski had to journey there as an adult for the training that gives her skill set a distinctive Hawaiian flavor.
The island's influence can be felt in a number of A Hawaiian Touch Natural Healing Center and Spa Inc.'s spa treatments, from lomi massages—a Hawaiian practice based on ancient ritual and music—to organic facials and seaweed detox wraps. The spa's menu is diverse, offering far infrared sauna sessions alongside a wide array of massage modalities including craniosacral, sports, and medical massage. Trepinski, who is also an Integrative Nutrition health coach, even teaches other professionals how to perform reflexology, throw spa parties, and alleviate the pain of midnight burrito cravings.

At Davisson Clinic, Dr. Harvey Davisson and counselor Lisa Davisson plumb the depths of the subconscious during psychological counseling and hypnosis sessions. Each practitioner boasts a separate specialization; Harvey focuses on mitigating the effects of ADD and ADHD, and Lisa spends her time helping kids and adolescents cope with death and divorce. Their hypnosis sessions help patients focus on common goals, such as weight loss (for those looking to shed a few pounds) or smoking cessation (for those who are addicted to making their own barbecue). When it comes to weight loss, treatments don't end with counseling sessions; the clinic actually offers a holistic plan that incorporates hypnosis, personal training, and supplements.
Martin Gonzalez, certified consulting hypnotist, is the brains and calm, soothing voice behind Alpha Omega Hypnosis. He draws on his numerous certifications—including from the American Hypnosis Association and the National Guild of Hypnotists—to personalize sessions for each client. During each appointment, he brings clients into a light state of hypnosis, then uses techniques such as regression or neurolinguistic programming to help them lose weight, boost confidence, alleviate phobias, or deal with anxiety, among other services.
Randall Winter and Nadine Romain, the experts behind The New You, believe that every person has an inner ability to heal himself or herself. During hypnosis sessions, they help their clients stop bad habits and increase good behaviors. These sessions can also target conditions such as chronic pain or anxiety.
