Inspired by personal brushes with tobacco’s destructive power, experienced cigarette exorcist Dr. Jeffrey Williams helms ReNew Auriculotherapy Center to help free tobacco users from the clutches of nicotine addiction via auriculotherapy. During treatment, he’ll carefully anchor slender micro-current probes at specific acupressure points in the outer ears, propelling micro-currents of nearly painless energy to the nerve centers associated with nicotine addiction. Each initial visit encompasses up to 30 minutes of consultation, treatment, and butt-quashing pointers, while dual follow-up boosters over the next 60 days bolster flagging willpower with 15-minute jolts of auricular impetus. In addition to its patent merits as a tongue twister, auriculotherapy may extinguish seditious pockets of nicotine in delicate organ systems and wash away physiological cigarette yens with a tidal wave of feel-good endorphins.
Sculpted into the rolling hills of western Illinois, Clinton Hill Golf Course’s undulating fairways flow into large, challenging greens across two distinct, nine-hole layouts. Mature arbors pepper the landscape, threatening the autonomy of airborne balls while providing scenic, shady plots in which golfers can pause to gawk at the layout’s lush greenery and herbivorous golf carts grazing on native grasses. A longer layout and a higher concentration of bunkers supply the bulk of the difficulty on the front nine, and water hazards await at seven holes on the course’s back nine, placing a high demand on confident swings and deft club selection. Those looking for new gear can peruse Clinton Hill’s pro shop, which peddles golfletic apparel and accessories from the game’s top brands. After a round of aggressive pin-hunting, players can retreat to Clinton Hill Bar and Grill, where guests can enjoy live sporting events on one of several TVs or revive sleepy golf bags with an icy beverage.
