For years, chronic pain plagued Mark Rogers. He’d tried everything—visits to the chiropractor, traditional bodywork, even back surgery. But it wasn’t until he stumbled upon Bowen therapy that he finally found relief. Originating in Australia, Bowenwork shares few characteristics with other forms of bodywork. Instead of subjecting the body to forceful realignment, the methodology incites self-healing with gentle, precise movements aimed at the muscles, tendons, and nerves. During a typical session, the Bowen practitioner will deliver these moves in a series of patterns, stepping out between each series to allow the brain and body time to process the effects. Within an hour, some clients will feel a reprieve from afflictions ranging from back pain to asthma and depression. Mark also specializes in post-concussion symptoms and issues with infertility. According to Mark, the majority of clients notice a change for the better within three to five sessions.
Since its founding in 1987, Living Lite's weight-loss program has helped thousands of people slim down quickly and almost effortlessly. Instead of simply telling clients to change their eating habits, its practitioners use hypnotic suggestion to root newer, healthier behaviors in the subconscious brains. Clients find themselves exercising regularly and picking more wholesome foods without ever having to think about it consciously. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not induce amnesia, and participants will usually remember everything that happens during the soothing sessions.
