Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is a form of empowerment as opposed to control. James Rightmire, CCH, relies on his extensive experience as he helps clients make positive changes in their lives through conscious choice as opposed to trance-like suggestion. This is possible because of the simple fact that the therapist never takes control of a client's mind during a session. Instead, hypnotherapy involves a combination of physical relaxation and professional guidance that leads to changes in brain-wave patterns, which allows clients to use the full power of their subconscious mind to make decisions motivated by a strong, conscious desire for self-improvement. Hypnosis is a merely a tool that empowers people to follow through with their convictions and make positive life changes, such as stopping smoking, controlling eating habits, or ceasing other addictive behaviors.

At The Nail Place's digit masters retouch nails in private suites, applying long-lasting manicure and pedicure treatments over the course of two hours. During the no-chip manicure, gel and vibrant polish is lamp-baked into a finger ornament that is both vivid and long lasting, much like the memory of seeing an elderly professor eat an entire football. Neither the cruel slaps of closing doors nor the scratches of glancing blowdarts will dent or scratch the no-chip manicure once applied. After feet receive a full cuticle and nail pruning, they can luxuriate with a soothing, thorough sole massage and clean themselves with the nail buffer and file provided to all clients.
