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.

Working as a team, they attempt to set realistic goals, which can be achieved in part thanks to the provided gourmet protein diets.

Anu Buzruk learned Hatha yoga at the Sree Swamy Vivekananda Centre of Teacher Education in India, taught the style in India for six years, and then moved to Chicago and completed Lotus Yoga Center’s 200-hour training course. Yet, even with all of her training, she works to continually improve her teaching at Yoganubhav Studio by regularly scheduling feedback sessions with her students and their often neglected mats. Since starting her career, she has taught Hatha yoga to more than 400 students, and she employs their feedback to tailor her classes to their needs. Through this personalization of her classes, many students have reported her Hatha yoga classes have helped to increase their flexibility and alleviate issues such as anxiety, digestive difficulty, and menstrual disorders.
Wisconsin Vision’s crew screens eyes for aberrations and illnesses and presides over an extensive selection of designer frames and lenses. At each location, optometrists perform thorough exams, producing prescriptions that recommend single-vision or progressive lenses from Zeiss. Newly ground lenses can then be fitted into any number of designer frames from the likes of Ray-Ban, Coach, or Calvin Klein. Antiscratch coatings protect the glass panes, and Transitions lenses allow any set of specs to turn into sunglasses when one steps outside or auditions for a classic-rock band.
