Integrative Hypnosis's owner Shandoah has made it her mission to understand the mind-body connection. The daughter of an acupuncturist, she discovered a passion for Shiatsu at age 17 and immediately became a practitioner of the form, continuing to use Shiatsu to teach her clients about the natural mechanics of their bodies. Recently, she expanded her explorations to include the brain and began offering hypnosis. She asks prospective recipients to pick the behavior in their lives that they'd most like to change, and devises a custom treatment plan to modify that behavior with an integrative approach.
