Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis doesn't put people to sleep. Instead, a hypnotist guides the client's mind into the realm of the subconscious to discover and dissipate bad habits, traumatic memories, or stress. Great Lakes Hypnosis strives to do just that with every session. Likening it to flipping a switch within the brain, the hypnotist leads the mind's subconscious captain to smoke-free or anger-free waters. Great Lakes Hypnosis also helps with dietary and lifestyle habits, and clients often leave with healthy brain food, such as a relaxation CD that plies their ears with the tranquil noises of nature.
Cook Chiropractic Clinic has kept the citizens of Shelby Township standing taller, straighter, and without pain for three decades. During that time, founder Doctor of Chiropractic William S. Cook has guided the practice to fulfill its simple mission: to help people maintain their health naturally. He shares that goal with Doctor of Chiropractic Janet Bednarz, who brings more than 16 years of experience to the treatment table. Together they tend to clients’ concerns with hands-on therapies complemented by advanced technology. Chiropractic-adjustment tools help gently nudge spinal discs back into place, and thermal-scan technology pinpoints the exact location of pinched nerves.
Dr. Adam Mandziuk, the chiropractor behind Star Chiropractic, first became interested in chiropractic care as a teen. A doctor had recommended surgery for his father's back pain, but the elder Mandziuk decided to try chiropractic care first. It worked. Mandziuk witnessed his father heal without drugs or surgery.
At his practice, Dr. Mandziuk works to heal patients in the same way. With deft adjustments, he realigns spines, relieving pain and boosting overall health. Patients can also opt for massages that relax and soothe the surrounding muscles.
Doctor of Chiropractic Denise McDaniel expressed an interest in science at an early age, but it took a series of minor auto injuries to narrow her sights on the field of physical therapy. Those injuries had left her with daily headaches, and she paid her first visit to a chiropractor in search of relief. Within two weeks, her headaches were gone. They had been replaced with something else: a genuine interest in a career in chiropractic.
It’s safe to say that Dr. McDaniel has come a long way since then. Having opened and operated four clinics throughout Michigan, she has perfected a model of chiropractic care that focuses unrelentingly on the individual patient. She divides each treatment into three phases: relief care, corrective care, and wellness care. Generally speaking, the first of these phases addresses and reduces symptoms with adjustments, the second restores the body with assisted exercises and stretches, and the third helps promote a healthy lifestyle with routine chiropractic care.
To supplement her treatments, Dr. McDaniel has taken two certified massage therapists on board at McDaniel Chiropractic. These therapists work closely with the chiropractor to devise custom massages that treat chronic pain, improve circulation, and help necks work toward their ultimate goal of rotating 360 degrees.
Before he was a board-certified chiropractor, Doctor of Chiropractic Bradley Krawczyk was a chiropractic student with migraine headaches. He visited his first chiropractor who identified the source of the migraines as a subluxation in the spine and corrected it with drug-free adjustments. Today, Dr. Krawczyk extends the same traditional chiropractic treatments to his patients, correcting a range of ailments such as migraines, sciatica, and fatigue—all without the use of needles, drugs, or surgery.
Instead of merely treating symptoms, Doctor of Chiropractic Timothy Malter and Doctor of Chiropractic Keith Brennan correct skeletal alignment to decrease nerve irritation and nip health issues in the bud. After discussing the patient’s history, current condition, and wellness goals, the doctors perform gentle chiropractic treatments to allow the body to heal itself. Regular adjustments can even prevent future problems by strengthening nervous systems and straightening spinal columns misaligned from years of competitive hula hooping.
