Before beginning any sort of treatment at Simply Well, the ayurvedic nutritionists help attendees discover which of the three personal constitutions, or doshas, best reflects them. Based on the assessment, the staff recommends a naturalistic course of therapeutic action, shepherding clients through anything from weight-loss programs and management of diabetes to addressing chronic fatigue or arthritis.
Trainers lead boot camps and workouts, therapists organize personalized consultations, and nutritionists lead cooking lessons that teach clients which foods stave off disease and promote energy, or which flowers to plant around refrigerators to keep rabbit roommates away. This combination of physical activity and study aims to invest guests with a sense of whole-body wellness by giving people the tools they need to keep practicing ayurvedic lifestyles at home.
Whether they battle extra weight, smoking addiction, or stress, clients find a glimmer of hope at Richmond Hypnosis Center. There, a hypnotherapist waits with positive suggestions to skillfully insert into your subconscious. For weight loss, for example, the hypnotherapist will rework the way food affects you emotionally and create a positive correlation between exercise and enjoyment. And when it comes to kicking persistent stress, the therapist helps clients learn how to eventually self-soothe by slipping into a hypnotized state without assistance.

Clients can come to this soothing wellness center for certified health coaching as well, taking advantage of the calm atmosphere and friendly staff.
Chiropractor Nelson Gregory often compares himself to a dentist: although he certainly fixes his clients' aches after the fact, he focuses on preventative measures to avoid them altogether. At Richmond Chiropractic Solutions, he and his staff dole out a handful of treatments that serve both of these cases. Their specialties include sports rehabilitation, nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and corrective exercises to strengthen particularly weak areas.

A wellness coach works toward more than physical health; by building a genuine rapport with clients through candid conversation, the coach helps round out lacking lifestyles. This includes ascertaining charges' deepest dreams and goals, and helping them carve out a path to reach them.
