At Pittsburgh Alternative Health, friendly staffers join Doctor of Naturopathy Darrell Misak and needle-free acupressure specialist, Dr. Wan Huang to restore and maximize bodily health and mental well-being with holistic treatments. Toxins are expelled during sauna sessions, where infrared light saps contaminants from muscles, and relaxing ionic footbaths, which kiss the feet with gentle electrical charges. Relaxed patrons can glide into a private mental-rest room, where a programmed audio-visual show lures minds into a state of alert relaxation with music, lights, and footage of baby pandas learning to cartwheel. The health center can also aid patients on the road to health with analytic testing. During an EAV test, technicians use a fusion of mechanical methods and ancient acupuncture pressure points to study the body’s energy. The results can pinpoint sensitivities to foods, chemicals, or existentialist poems that may be decreasing energy or causing other health problems.
Certified clinical hypnotherapist Natalie Decker won't hypnotize you to bark like a dog on command or donate money to PBS every time you hear classical music, but she will tap into your subconscious to help you lose weight, stop smoking, boost your self-esteem, and develop more focus in your career. She does this by bringing people to an extremely relaxed state and using powerful imagery to "speak" to the subconscious mind and effect positive change. Clients remain awake and in control during the entire session.
