Though their disciplines and specialties may vary, the team at Aletris Center agrees that the true definition of health is more far-reaching, and more complex, than a mere lack of disease. The goal at their center is to combine natural and alternative medicine with the best of conventional healthcare available. They apply this preventative, comprehensive, naturopathic philosophy to an extensive roster of ailments from acid reflux to weight gain.
As the staff members' backgrounds vary, so do the treatments they offer, which include acupuncture, holistic pelvic care, chiropractic care, and colon hydrotherapy. Other specialties include naturopathic medicine, natural hormone therapy, women's health, and pediatrics.
Within every individual lies a massive reserve of potential for self-growth. At Trance-Formation Hypnotherapy, certified hypnotherapists teach their clients how to access these reserves. During their sessions, they draw on their reserve of empathy to help patrons overcome bad habits and destructive thought patterns. Much like real-time coverage of a Monopoly tournament, hypnotherapy sessions lure clients into a natural, yet altered state of consciousness that exists in between consciousness and sleep. This state allows the therapists to bypass the analytical mind and either make direct suggestions to the deeply rooted subconscious or work through the repressed emotions that can cause specific symptoms. Through the use of guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention, hypnotherapy helps clients achieve a greater sense of self-awareness and confidence.
In 2010, Crisis Nursery’s Children’s Shelter cared for 505 children with 24/7 emergency services. 46% of the young people admitted are homeless, 40% face parental health and psychological problems and abuse, and 23% undergo domestic violence, abuse, and neglect at home. The shelter satisfies immediate needs with new clothing and medical attention, and comprehensive services also include educational opportunities and behavioral services with nurturing staff members to help make young people feel at ease during traumatic periods. Crisis Nursery also works with parents to help resolve the crisis and get kids safely back into homes. An overnight stay for one person costs the organization $75, including staff supervision, housing including utilities and phone service, a day's worth of food, and program supplies.
If frozen yogurt is the svelter, healthier sister of ice cream, the soy soft serve at Nami is its supermodel cousin. Everything in the treat shop, from the lean soy soft serve to the organic and vegan mix-ins, is designed to make each treat as healthy as possible. Customers sidle up to the counter and choose the signature flavor combination they desire, then watch as staff members fill their biodegradable cups with such amalgamations as the organic chai, organic animal crackers, and soy whip of the Chai Tiramisu; the lemon flavor and Newman’s Ginger O’s of the O’, Ginger Snap!; and the vegan Cap’n Crunch and strawberries that create the Soy Capitan. On chilly days or when swearing off spoons, guests can savor one of the shop's completely vegan baked goods such as oatmeal cream pies, cupcakes, and truffles, or sip on coffees sweetened with a choice of nut-based milk.
