The Art of You Holistic Center heals bodies with relaxing treatments performed both indoors and out. Classic facials and back treatments evict dirt from the skin, and massages?which range from deep tissue to Swedish?turn tense muscles into butter. The center also offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine and only uses natural products that are free of parabens, sulfates, and poltergeists.
Energy healers and spiritual seekers converge at Liberate Emporium, a Los Feliz healing center with a Zen-like, meditative vibe. Specializing in energy cleansing and spiritual development, Liberate is a one-stop-shop on the road to enlightenment for locals and the greater L.A. holistic set, who head to the shiny Hillhurst Avenue location. The burnt orange storefront sells a dizzying array of new-aged wares, including dried sage, incense, assorted oils and a number of precious crystals – ironing out funky energy is Liberate’s specialty, after all. In addition to services like hypnotherapy, psychic readings and astrology charting, the shop also offers classes in spiritual development, Reiki, tarot reading and more.
At Moteaze Salon & Spa, stylists untangle, trim, and tint manes; aestheticians reward visages with facials and microdermabrasions; and wellness experts delve deep into psyches to patch up troubled spots. Paraben-free spray-tanning solutions spritz wintry complexions with a healthy glow after hypnotherapy sessions remold wellness-hindering habits such as smoking, overeating, and sleepwalking into lion dens. Applications of Xtreme Lashes optimize eye-batting prowess amid walls laden with colorful artwork.
While the conscious mind fulfills preconceived commands, the unconscious mind works unsupervised, sometimes causing negative conditions such as phobias. Fortunately, the holistic practitioners at Direct Mindpower tap into the brain's inner workings to balance out mental health using hypnotherapy. During sessions, Lingfei Hui?a graduate of the Hypnosis Motivation Institute?works with clients to access their subconscious and treat wide-reaching conditions, including nausea, anxiety, and high blood pressure.
The expert also specializes in AcuPranic Therapy, a needle-free form of acupuncture created by Lingfei Hui. Eschewing all physical contact with the body, she taps into life forces to create invisible needles, which she claims can restore a person's chi flow and improve overall health.
