Founded by certified colon hydrotherapist Adina Zeev and licensed acupuncturist Jata Abdur-Rahim, Blessed Love Health Care endeavors to bring the mind, body, and spirit into balance through holistic treatments and educational workshops. Therapies—including acupuncture, ear candling, and shiatsu massage—rely heavily on Eastern practices to detoxify and restore wellness. Raw-food classes and certification courses help participants up their intake of whole, natural foodstuffs while reducing their dependence on processed meals and plastic fruits dipped in Cool Whip. In addition to authoring several books on wellness, Adina personally creates each of Blessed Love’s workshops, whose topics range from gardening to fertility.
The staff of Thrive Wellness Center takes a holistic approach to health, blending ancient techniques with modern technologies. The center offers acupuncture, yoga, and massage to treat myriad maladies, from aches and pains to fertility issues.
Danna Pycher’s certification for neurolinguistic hypnotherapy means she grasps the language-oriented aspects of human programming as well as the image-oriented aspects of hypnotherapy. She practices both techniques at By This Time Coaching, giving her patients many treatment options for overcoming their chronic illnesses and issues. Pycher’s treatments include traditional hypnosis, life coaching, and Hypno-Band therapy, the latter of which simulates the process, results, and get-well cards of gastric bypass surgery to help patients make healthy lifestyle changes.
The goal of Nautilus Life Center is to help people understand that healing comes from within and that the mind has the capacity to affect the body and its behaviors. To that end, certified hypnotherapists Jose Incer and Guillermo Leon oversee a team of transformational experts, ranging from life coaches to meditation teachers, who employ a bouquet of ancient and modern therapies that strive to access the subconscious and adjust self-perceptions. Clients might attend hypnosis sessions to conquer cigarette cravings, uncover realizations through past-life-regression therapy, or practice Emotional Freedom Techniques to release anxiety—each appointment focuses on the patient's specific goals. The healing gurus can combat phobias related to common stressors including the dentist and public speaking, but can also promote development of athletic and academic skills. Their treatments always involve interaction with a professional rather than instructive tapes or a parrot trained to say "Good job," though clients can opt for over-the-phone sessions in the interest of privacy.
At Wellness and Acupuncture, doctors Howard and Adam Moskow take a natural approach to healing. A father-son team with more than 40 years of combined experience, the Moskows mend clients suffering from such common conditions as arthritis, back pain, anxiety, and more. To do so, they rely on acupuncture especially, but also integrate other holistic methods into their repertoire, including herbal medicines and mud therapy, a treatment that utilizes natural earth clays for therapeutic purposes.
At Broward Acupuncture and Holistic Medicine, Johanna Nazzar bridges Eastern and Western medicine to forge a holistic health plan catered to each patient. Nazzar draws on the physiological, environmental, and psychosocial components of each patient’s health before prescribing acupuncture, Chinese herbs, or auricular therapy to help restore balance. Physicians also employ detailed diagnostic tools to evaluate the body, including hair-tissue analysis, food sensitivity tests, and biophotonic scanners that evaluate antioxidant levels.
