Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We have a fun, family atmosphere that provides a variety of methods and benchmark goals to keep members motivated and on track.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
We go through a group warm up, learn a new skill or work on a existing skill. Then we set up for the workout. The workouts are constantly varied; they can be done as an individual, performed with a partner or small team.
As an 11-year-old girl, Doctor of Chiropractic Wendy Gallego was diagnosed with scoliosis. The painful curvature in her spine immediately began to interfere with her life, forcing her to drop out of gymnastics and wear a back brace. After years of chronic discomfort, a college friend suggested that she visit a chiropractor, and she finally began to find relief from her symptoms. More importantly, she was inspired by her chiropractor's whole-body approach to wellness, which emphasized nutrition and lifestyle as well as treatment. This drove her to become a chiropractor herself while formulating the philosophy that "people should not be perceived as separately functioning parts, but rather as a complex structure of interdependent systems." By founding Shin Wellness, she sought to create a holistic health care center that addressed physical as well as mental health.
Embracing Western and Eastern treatment modalities, Dr. Gallego looks for instructors and therapists with more than technical proficiency and a photographic recollection of the periodic table. She claims that "there's a quality that comes with being a healer," and she looks for that passion in all her prospective employees, whether they will be performing massages, conducting hypnotherapy sessions, or leading Pilates classes.
Gardens Acupuncture and Wellness Center nurtures the natural healing abilities of each client by combining massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies into personalized treatment packages. During each aromatherapy Swedish massage, a licensed and certified massage therapist mollifies stress-laden muscles with strokes of medium-to-strong pressure and various essential oils by Young Living, depending on the needs of each client. By working with the connection between the sense of smell and the brain's emotional receptors, the therapists aim to invoke wellness and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress. In addition to helping to improve circulation, the massage promotes balance and emotional well being by unleashing holistic Dobermans to patrol the body's valleys in search of negative-energy intrusions.
While some hypnotherapists work by conditioning the psyche to reject bad habits, Andrea Crouch prefers to open the psyche to its power of choice. Her affirming intonations dissolve feelings of obligation and frustration, replacing them with a sense of agency and self-worth. She believes that people who "love themselves fully" are less likely to find solace in addictions, unhealthy diets, and snuggling with grizzly bears. Andrea also directs her mesmeric voice toward helping people enjoy exercise and excel in the workplace; in addition, she teaches mothers self-hypnosis techniques to ease natural childbirth.
An integral part of Andrea's support team, Maryanne Everett, certified hypnotist and holistic health coach, helps clients attain their weight loss goals or assuages aches with pain management therapy. Maryanne's ability to unfurl tension through licensed massage therapy complements her hypnotherapy background, which includes 400-plus hours of training she completed at Florida's first official licensed hypnotherapy institute. She applies her knowledge by conducting hypnosis for pain-management treatments as well as holistic coaching hypnosis sessions.
A devotee of meditation for many years, Heidi Chinlund found that hypnosis and self-hypnosis transported her to deep mental states more quickly than meditation ever had. Since becoming a Certified Clinical Hypnotist in 2010, Heidi has harnessed her hypnotic voice to help patients decrease their anxiety, gain confidence, and relieve pain from chronic ailments. She has also designed hypnosis sessions to access memories from past lives, as well as sessions to quit smoking by changing behaviors on the subconscious level.
