As if picking a deadbolt, Abundant Wellness Center's hypnotherapists and counselors unlock the subconscious mind. In hypnotherapy sessions, groups and individuals relax to the point where their minds are open to suggestion in order to stop smoking, break a habit, or get out of a strained relationship with a cheeseburger. In counseling sessions, individuals can discuss their issues with a trained professional, gathering the personal tools they need to handle problems that range from grief to personal issues. For complex problems such as substance addictions, Abundant Wellness Center offers a range of court-approved DUI and alcohol and drug classes, along with regular outpatient group counseling sessions and case management.
The learned team of doctors and therapists at Avanti Health assuage chronic discomfort, pain from personal injury, and other health conditions with chiropractic and massage services.

Fully dedicated to patrons' overall wellness, the staff also helps patrons shed excess pounds with programs for medical weight loss, dieting, and exercise.
At Core Chiropractic, backs get back to good health thanks to Dr. Allan Joubert, who graduated magna cum laude and as a presidential scholar from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. In an effort to treat the entire body holistically, Dr. Joubert maintains an encyclopedic knowledge of the sacro-occipital technique—a method that relies on a system of indicators to pinpoint problem areas and efficiently corrects them with ease. This technique enables Dr. Joubert to treat not only increase general feelings of wellness but to alleviate both common and complicated cases, such as vertigo, ADHD, and ringing ears caused by vertebral subluxation or a pet parrot who won’t stop squawking your name. In addition to treating ailing backs, Dr. Joubert provides nutritional services that especially focus on the importance of whole foods.
Chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Wendy Cunningham, addresses common health problems with natural solutions and treatments, including the ancient Chinese method of acupuncture. An initial consultation (a $35 value) lasts about 45 minutes and thoroughly discusses patient concerns before laying out an acupuncture treatment plan. During the course of two 25-minute acupuncture treatments (a $65 value for each), fine needles situate themselves along invisible meridians that run throughout the body from north to south. Like every M&M color, each point has a specific meaning and, when unblocked, can help facilitate the flow of vital energy throughout the body. The tiny needles increase blood flow and boost the production of collagen and elastin, allowing skin tone and color to improve, while ironing out fine lines like miniature metallic seamstresses.
At Back to Basics Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Gary Peters sets bodies on the path to wellness by identifying the underlying causes of pain rather than merely alleviating symptoms. The licensed chiropractor has seen his share of troubled vertebrae, many of which have led him to believe that problems ranging from muscular pain to digestive disorders can be traced directly back to the spinal column. In order to repair these conditions, Dr. Gary thoroughly evaluates clients with external examinations. His treatments and prescribed exercises help correct back problems, alleviate migraines, and heal bodies after sports injuries.
University Chiropractic's two licensed massage therapists use smooth, heated stones to help relieve tight muscles over the course of 60 minutes. Smooth basalt stones are most commonly used because of their ability to rapidly absorb and retain heat, like a silver spoon recently struck by lightning. Once stones are properly placed, massage experts rub them across the patient's body to soften sharp-edged muscle pain. Appointments are necessary, so be sure to schedule in advance.
