After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn’t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition’s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10–14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5–21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert and an encouraging online community.
Essential Energetics Clinic's medical director, registered nurse Desneige Datillo, began her career working in traditional medicine in the intensive care units and emergency rooms in Boston-area hospitals. But after finding that acupuncture had successfully treated a sports-related injury and her sleep difficulties, she knew she wanted to incorporate Eastern medicine practices with her traditional Western background, and so she studied to become a licensed acupuncturist.
Armed with her knowledge of integrated medicine, Datillo opened her clinic in 1994 to provide patients with a comprehensive way to stay healthy without the hassle of always wearing a fruit hat. Since then, she's been bolstering patients' health with acupuncture energy therapy, which uses hair-thin needles to help patients manage pain, enhance fertility, and treat nicotine addictions. As a certified laser specialist, Desneige can also use cold lasers to activate acupressure points or shrink fat cells. During many treatments, fully clothed patients lie atop a treatment table equipped with soothing amenities including a soft blanket, heat lamp, eye mask, and notes of encouragement from their mothers.
The health heads at Zanjabee concern themselves with total wellness, using the teachings of both Western and Eastern medicine to treat bodies, minds, and spirits. The Pranayama workshop, a large communal class accommodating up to 45 people at a time, introduces students to the precepts of the breath-work-based meditation technique.
Under the guidance of founder Rolando Massé, Massé Neuromuscular Therapy’s team of multilingual therapists help their patients conquer stress and pain with a range of massage techniques. The crux of their repertoire is neuromuscular therapy, which alleviates pain with gentle manipulation of muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues across the body. Other treatments include reflexology, myofascial-release therapy, and deep-tissue massage.
A registered nurse for 10 years, Paul Gustafson went on to clock another decade championing and practicing hypnosis through books, television, and private sessions. During free 30-minute phone or in-office consultations, Paul explains his process and helps patients decide if hypnosis suits them. In sessions, he probes each client's subconscious to uncover and then alter his or her attitude toward habits such as emotional eating, substance abuse, or smoking. His hypnosis can also relieve conditions and phobias such as stress, insomnia, nail biting, and fear of public speaking, which afflicts up to 35% of Americans and 100% of silent-film stars. He gradually teaches clients to perform self-hypnosis and supplies them with recordings of each session to aid in home reinforcement.
