Peter C. Williams, the clinical hypnotherapist behind Advanced Hypnotherapy of Naples, and his team of hypnotherapists, believe that each person has the mechanisms to overcome the problems inside them?they just might not know it. He works to put clients in touch with those mechanisms?first consulting with them to define issues and goals and then guiding them into a relaxed state of mental openness. According to Peter, hypnotherapy works with cognitive processes which may aid in weight loss by increasing self-control, encouraging physical exercise, improving self-esteem and body image, and boosting motivation. Participants may also opt to receive an IRS tax credit for select hypnotherapy programs.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

After plans were revealed to build a road through Rookery Bay in 1964, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida formed to protect the region's environmental interests.

Today, the group continues that work on a larger scale, promoting clean water in the Everglades, treating and releasing injured animals, and protecting sea turtle hatchlings.
