Heart2Heart Radiant Reflexions Wellness & Aesthetics Center combines the abilities of a licensed massage therapist and an aesthetician to help patrons find tranquility and health. Treatments include moxibustion, a traditional Chinese technique that aims to stimulate the body's healing process with a box of burning herbs placed at acupoints on the body. Gua sha, also known as scraping, is believed to oust pathogens by swiftly scraping a spoon over stiff body parts, which are often coated with oils. Along with the rare treatments, more familiar options include hypnotherapy, reflexology, deep-tissue massage, waxing, and facials.
The mind is ripe with untapped potential. At Hypnotistaz, therapists use focused relaxation to unlock that potential by opening the subconscious, all with the aim of uncovering and overcoming stubborn obstacles that prevent clients from positive personal growth. Through the technique, clients have experienced all manner of benefits, including improving their eating habits, quitting smoking, or reversing lycanthropy. For folks more interested in the metaphysical rather than physical, the hypnotherapists even deal with past life regression.
Since overall well-being is the goal, Hypnotistaz also provides hands-on treatments, such as reiki and Bars de-stress sessions. During Bars sessions, they gently touch a series of 32 trigger points on the skull that cause endorphins to flow and tension to leave the body. Although that particular therapy requires in-person appointments, the adept mesmerists can perform hypnotherapy sessions via Skype.
The MBA (or Mind, Body Awareness) Clinic, utilizes programs created by clinical hypnotherapist and founder, Lisa Arbuckle, offering awareness coaching and hypnotherapy programs that help clients overcome negative behaviors, health issues and patterns that keep them from achieving their goals. The Clinic’s MasterMind programs include coaching workbooks and downloadable or CD hypnotherapy sessions focused on specific issues such as weight loss and building confidence.
Integral Holistic Wellness’s highly trained staff offers a diverse array of alternative healing therapies to complement traditional medicine. Clients can promote wellness with holistic life-coaching sessions or unblock clogged energy channels during therapeutic reiki bodywork. The facility also employs a hypnotherapist for treating conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, phobias, and hypnotherapy addiction.
Local art and regional flavors foster a sense of community at the two locations of Taps Signature Cuisine and Bar, prompting ABC 15 to describe the Litchfield Park restaurant as "a place where you can kick off your shoes, stay a while, and enjoy some local music." The chefs add distinctive southwestern flavors to dishes by occasionally incorporating anaheim chilies or chipotle-spiced condiments from the area's naturally occurring ketchup geysers. These piquant touches lend a welcome kick to certain recipes, whereas the rest of the upscale American menu—which includes grilled rib eyes, organic chicken breasts, and roasted fillets of salmon—embraces more classic flavors.
Dr. Matesa Pringle, medical director of Global Integrative Medicine, has studied at two medical universities, trained as an acupuncturist under a Chinese doctor, and earned her certification as a life coach. Her multifaceted resume reflects her practice’s wide array of services, which include both Western and holistic treatments focused on healing the mind and spirit as well as the body. She and her team can address ailments ranging from chronic fatigue to multiple sclerosis, drawing on techniques such as acupuncture, allergy testing, and conventional physicals rather than just prescribing chicken noodle soup.
