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 Gong Wash workshops lead participants deep into the forgotten past to slough away the karma and out-of-date fashion choices that accumulate during former lives.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.
Like a sort of paint-by-numbers for weight loss, the Diet Center's four distinct dieting programs make shedding weight an easy step-by-step process. Each program includes detailed information about what to eat and makes food options accessible for every individual's daily routine. For instance, the Exclusively You program relies on structured and easy-to-follow meal plans that clients can create in their own kitchen, while the Instant Shape Up plan utilizes ready-made meal replacements and snacks, ideal for those who rarely have time to cook. Regardless of which program the client chooses, Diet Center's knowledgeable staff will answer all questions and inquiries along the way, just as they have for the past 40 years.
