Fluctuations in stress levels and health often go often hand in hand, and addressing one without the other can mask but not eliminate problems. Knowing this, the staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Absolute Wellness Spa works to cultivate a tranquil environment in which relaxing treatments address both bodily and mental health at the same time. Those treatments, which include massages, healing acupuncture, and mud wraps, draw on Western medical practices and Eastern philosophy to better approach wellness issues from a variety of angles. In the studio, quiet music plays to relax patrons, and fountains burble softly like a scuba diver trying to tell a secret.
A visit to Tranquility Massage & Wellness Centre, Inc. holds the promise of vastly different experiences, but each treatment works toward healing. Deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone massages soothe aches and pains; reflexology and chakra-aligning help restore inner peace; and hypnotherapy focuses on mending the psyche, from aiding weight-loss endeavors to helping the subconscious recall past life events.
Dr. Bill Rice has been performing acupuncture and chiropractic treatments, along with nutritional and lifestyle counseling since 1977. Along with the trained staff at Gardens Wellness Center, he flushes toxins from clients? figures using a wide array of holistic healing techniques as well as contemporary treatments. Amid bamboo accents, the studio's health professionals administer treatments ranging from acupuncture, colon hydrotherapy, and massage therapy to herbal medicine and hypnotherapy. Clients relax atop heated tables in private treatment rooms adorned with lush paintings of bright flora, plants, and doodles of weeping stick figures drawn by U.N. dignitaries.
A certified hypnotist with more than a decade of experience in hypnotherapy, Glenn Miller of The Hypnosis Zone empowers clients to overcome their mental stresses and blocks within the hidden depths of their own minds. Designed to effect positive change by opening the mind to the power of suggestion, Miller's hypnosis treatments ease clients into a relaxed, open state, allowing them to shed their awareness without tripping the brain's emergency door locks. Once in this dissociated condition, the subconscious mind may more easily accept suggestions for modifying negative habits or actions, such as smoking, excessive anxiety, or alcohol abuse. Despite the lowered awareness, clients remain fully conscious and in full control of their bodies and speech during the session. Outside the office, Miller entranced listeners on his former WBZT radio show, Hypnosis and More.
