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.
Pooches of all breeds and sizes scamper into Kosmo's Doghouse and, after spending a short time with the facility's professionals, head home cleaner, neater, and better trained.

At self-serve washing stations, faucets blast away dirt and give pups the swagger they need to stand tall during street fights with the household vacuum. The shop also stocks a variety of treats and toys, and works closely with no-kill shelters, frequently hosting adoption and fundraising events.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, an international preservation organization based in Chicago, was founded in 1989 to preserve the masterpieces of the greatest architectural pioneer of the 20th century. Frank Lloyd Wright developed a truly American style of architecture known as the Prairie School, creating what he called "architecture for democracy." His brilliant designs redefined the concept of space so that people could live and grow in organic environments, connecting physically and spiritually to the natural world without having to wrestle a cougar to prove their worth. The Conservancy's mission is to preserve and maintain the original splendor of Frank Lloyd Wright's remaining structures, which, when peered at through Wright's signature stained-glass windows, shed light into the architecture of a bygone era that has influenced modern American design. Since its inception, the Conservancy has worked with more than 150 FLW structures and has organized the nomination of 11 Wright structures and log cabins built from pretzel sticks to become immortalized as UNESCO World Heritage sites. The Conservancy is able to circulate knowledge of the nation's vibrant architectural heritage and the importance of conservation through guided tours of famous Wright buildings, an annual conference, and by publishing SaveWright, a biannual magazine, and eBytes, an electronic newsletter.
