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 minds. 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.
The trained hands at Abosede's Healing Touch navigate their way through tense and knotted muscles during massages.

Their instruction is structured to keep clients motivated, happy, and on track or treadmill during the 30-minute sessions and beyond. Also included is one half-hour post-training massage (a $40 value), so push yourself to the limit knowing there's a soothing muscle recharger waiting to enliven fatigued gams and electrify exhausted arms come session's end.
Frank Tatulinski wears many hats—he's a personal trainer, licensed Zumba fitness instructor, and certified Swedish-massage practitioner. Frank worked purely in the fitness realm for a long time where he saw many clients struggle with postworkout soreness. Then, his wife was diagnosed with lupus, and he wanted to help her deal with the resulting pain. The answer to both issues was massage therapy. Today, Frank puts his skills to work relieving clients' pain and stress. However, he still teaches fitness classes. He offers a wide range of Zumba classes, including the traditional dance-inspired classes, Zumba for kids, and Aqua Zumba, which takes place a pool to the tune of Latin oceans.
Before stepping foot into his namesake practice within the Willo Medical Building, licensed acupuncturist Anthony Lorenzo spent hundreds of hours learning the ins and out of Chinese herbal treatments and acupuncture. This dedication led to a master's degree in Oriental medicine as well as a specialization in the Japanese style of acupuncture.
Today, from his intimate practice, Lorenzo employs this form of acupuncture, which uses fine, sterile needles and minimal manipulation to increase blood flow, reduce discomfort, and increase energy levels more effectively than a dose of motor oil. The ancient treatment also works to reduce aches and pains caused by headaches, digestive issues, and autoimmune disorders.
