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.
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.
Doctors of Chiropractic Bill Jensen and John Paul Fritz pool their wealth of knowledge at 1 Advanced Rehab & Wellness Center, where they focus on reestablishing physical and mental wellness with treatments that range from traditional chiropractic care to relaxing massage therapy. The center’s spa-like ambiance—soft music and warm towels accompany every massage—illustrates the doctors’ shared concern for treating stress as well as injuries. Though rich, vibrant colors flow along the walls and contribute to the overall impression of a tranquil spa, the doctors have taken care to stock their center with advanced chiropractic instruments that promise relief from chronic aches, sports injuries, and anxiety about botching upcoming jewel heists.
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.
