Gardens Acupuncture and Wellness Center nurtures the natural healing abilities of each client by combining massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies into personalized treatment packages. During each aromatherapy Swedish massage, a licensed and certified massage therapist mollifies stress-laden muscles with strokes of medium-to-strong pressure and various essential oils by Young Living, depending on the needs of each client. By working with the connection between the sense of smell and the brain's emotional receptors, the therapists aim to invoke wellness and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress. In addition to helping to improve circulation, the massage promotes balance and emotional well being by unleashing holistic Dobermans to patrol the body's valleys in search of negative-energy intrusions.
Debbie Dubickas wasn’t always a clinical hypnotherapist, and the Scotland native never thought she'd end up in Florida. She's owned and managed a diverse array of businesses, but it seems it was only a matter of time before she found her calling. Her whole life, Debbie has been fascinated by hypnosis and psychology, and been a listening ear for friends and family. After a stretch of life-changing spiritual experiences, she decided to become certified in clinical hypnotherapy.
Debbie has helped clients on both sides of the Atlantic improve their lives through targeted suggestion. She's registered with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and uses sessions to set positive intentions and help clients regress back to the causes of problematic behaviors. Sessions typically range from one to two hours as clients untangle and free themselves from unhealthy eating habits, smoking, or fears.
Essential oils, gemstones, crystals and the body's natural energy pasterns. These are a few of the tools Dee Woolridge uses to facilitate healing and relaxation. At Quintessence Alternative Health Therapies, she also seizes upon her natural intuition and empathy to strengthen overall well-being. With those tools and skills, she performs services that align chakras and auras, alleviate stress and pain, and foster positive psyches. Balancing energy with reiki and assisting clients with hypnotherapy are a couple more methods she uses to regenerate, rejuvenate, and heal.
While some hypnotherapists work by conditioning the psyche to reject bad habits, Andrea Crouch prefers to open the psyche to its power of choice. Her affirming intonations dissolve feelings of obligation and frustration, replacing them with a sense of agency and self-worth. She believes that people who "love themselves fully" are less likely to find solace in addictions, unhealthy diets, and snuggling with grizzly bears. Andrea also directs her mesmeric voice toward helping people enjoy exercise and excel in the workplace; in addition, she teaches mothers self-hypnosis techniques to ease natural childbirth.
An integral part of Andrea's support team, Maryanne Everett, certified hypnotist and holistic health coach, helps clients attain their weight loss goals or assuages aches with pain management therapy. Maryanne's ability to unfurl tension through licensed massage therapy complements her hypnotherapy background, which includes 400-plus hours of training she completed at Florida's first official licensed hypnotherapy institute. She applies her knowledge by conducting hypnosis for pain-management treatments as well as holistic coaching hypnosis sessions.
There are many paths to self improvement. The Laser and Cosmetic Center recognizes both internal and external routes to perfection. Hypnotherapist Maureen draws on experience accumulated at Temple, Barry, and Harvard universities to help patrons use their own hidden inner strengths to quit smoking, lose weight, or improve their general mindsets.
Dr. A. Valdes, the resident physician at the center, helps work on the surface to work towards beauty. He isn't fond of scalpels, preferring to rejuvenate his clients' faces without surgery, smoothing out wrinkles and adding volume with dermal injections. He administers injections of Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and other fillers, targeting areas such as crow's feet and smile lines. He can even perform non-surgical face-lifts and lessen double chins without hiding one beneath a Victorian ruff.
The center's expert staff also performs a variety of other cosmetic treatments. Their Candela laser removes unwanted body hair, as do electrolysis sessions. Facials, microdermabrasion, and clinical peels help to clarify complexions, while permanent makeup lends definition to eyebrows and lips. There's a Harvard-educated hypnotherapist on staff as well, who strives to curb bad habits and addictions.
The health buffs at Orthomolecular Nutrition and Wellness Center take the fight for wellness to the body’s microscopic frontlines, using vitamins, hormones, and other supplements to restore vim and vigor lost to age or ill health. During one-on-one consultations, they first sniff out deficiencies and imbalances with a variety of blood tests and questionnaires, giving them a clear view of underlying problems. From there, they can advise on protocols that help their clients lose weight, age more gracefully, or improve their steeplechase performance.
