Liz Fatone grew up in Southern California, surrounded by a natural bounty of produce and lean protein. She didn't realize how lucky she was until career and stress took away her born and bred healthy eating habits. She noticed a decline in happiness and health, and when her daughter was born, she decided it was time for a change. She sought training at the Institute for Integrated Nutrition, learning over a hundred dietary theories and studying the effect of food on all aspects of life. Armed with this knowledge and a desire to help others discover a healthier lifestyle, she now acts as a nutritional counselor, providing in-person or over-the-phone advice on shopping and cooking to individual clients and whole families.
With technology such as the Insight Millennium testing station at her fingertips, Doctor of Chiropractic Esther Jimenez is well-equipped to analyze spinal dysfunction and recommend a course of holistic healing. She stays up-to-date on the latest developments in the chiropractic field by attending quarterly seminars, which inform her nutritional counseling and manual adjustments. Dr. Jimenez also gives back to the community through free wellness events and charity drives, as well as manually straightening the girders in downtown buildings.
Lorry Salluzzi of Soma Healing Center has many highly developed talents—most of them in areas completely foreign to the average earthly being. As a professional medium, clairvoyant, and alternative healer, she helps her clients commune with loved ones' spirits, learn about their futures, and feel better balanced through chakra work, Reiki, tuning fork therapy, and needle-free acupuncture. Gong Wash workshops lead participants deep into the forgotten past to slough away the karma and out-of-date fashion choices that accumulate during former lives. To reinforce their own psychic abilities, guests can sign up for psychic development workshops, and Reiki practitioners of varying levels can hone their skills under Salluzzi's expert guidance.
Many of her clients visit—or call—for psychic readings. Salluzzi prides herself on her ability to see energy, which lets her glimpse auras and always know if her clients are hiding batteries in their mouths. Tarot cards facilitate each reading, but the deck is just a vehicle through which Salluzzi channels her focus. She encourages visitors to bring specific questions, and even pictures and personal items, to their readings.
