Despite the way hypnosis is depicted in movies and TV, patients don't enter into an unconscious state, unaware of the world around them and forced to act like monkeys whenever they hear the word banana. Instead, the reality of hypnosis, according to Meridian Peak Hypnosis, is that it puts patients in touch with their subconscious. Hypnotherapists lead patients into a hypnotic state—something akin to a daydream—where they can address a wide range of issues, including stress, claustrophobia, overeating, and cigarette addiction. At Meridian Peak Hypnosis, hypnotherapists aim to dispel common misconceptions during thorough consultations, walking patients through the process and discussing their issues, before recommending a plan, which may include private sessions.

At Ideal Weight Loss, helpful technicians work with clients to develop lasting weight-loss plans using noninvasive methods—meaning no surgeries, medications, or shots. At the root of the clinic’s mission is the Ideal Weight Loss method, which begins with complimentary consultations and is nurtured via a partnership between staffers and patients. Working as a team, they attempt to set realistic goals, which can be achieved in part thanks to the provided gourmet protein diets. In addition to the four-phase long-term plan, the clinic also offers body-sculpting services such as wraps and LipoLaser.
The staff at Fusion Med Spa includes a general surgeon and aestheticians who help to whittle bodies into shapely figures with FDA-approved cosmetic and aesthetic treatments.

They work to reduce wrinkles and lessen other signs of aging, such as sagging skin and falling asleep while watching golf, with Venus Freeze skin-tightening sessions. Wielding lasers, they dissolve adipose tissue and cellulite, remove hair, and reduce spider veins.
After spending years combating her unhealthy habits, Sky Yoga Studio founder Emily Canibano discovered yoga as a way to carve out a balanced body and wholesome lifestyle. Diverse training in kids’ yoga, prenatal yoga, and Hatha yoga led to a studio suitable for body benders of all skill levels. Emphasis on personalized instruction can be seen in the studio’s roster of nearly 40 class types, which include everything from a low-impact brand of interval training that's accessible to seniors to a playful parent-tot class designed for adults with their children aged 3 to 6. Though Emily primarily champions the spiritual and therapeutic applications of yoga, she also draws upon her experience as a personal trainer and Zumba instructor to orchestrate cardio-heavy fitness classes that tone bodies that have recently had to chew their way out of gingerbread houses.
