By bringing Dr. Shirley Cox on board, Alexis is also able to offer weight management and hypnotherapy, which can help assuage phobias and anxiety.
Years ago, miners in Eastern Europe first discovered the therapeutic benefits of salt: Hours of exposure in salt mines was said to alleviate such respiratory ailments as asthma, bronchitis, and more. Salt Chalet Arizona imitates the salt mines of Eastern Europe. Inside the facility?s two treatment rooms, layers of salt extracted from the Dead Sea coat the surfaces from floor to ceiling. Amid calming light and ambient music, visitors lounge back in comfy chairs and breathe in the salt, which has healing ions that can help clear out breathing passages and reduce inflammation in the lungs. With respect to respiratory ailments, the relaxing salt treatments provide a noninvasive alternative to drugs, undergoing surgery, or bottling and inhaling the breath of a healthy friend.
Millennia-old treatment modalities and modern technological advancements each have their place at Great Wall Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Drs. Qingsong Xiao and Vance Inouye?who hold a PhD in traditional Chinese medicine and a doctorate in naturopathic medicine, respectively?promote patients' well-being with holistic treatments that alleviate painful symptoms while supporting the human body's ability to heal itself naturally over time. To find the root causes of these symptoms, the practitioners employ a variety of noninvasive diagnostic techniques. Approaches include applying gentle pressure to key trigger points to locate sources of withheld tension and analyzing the pulse's strength, pattern, and ability to communicate in Morse code.
From there, it's up to the staff to recommend a treatment regimen specially tailored to address each client's needs. These regimens can incorporate traditional methods, such as acupuncture, tui na bodywork's combination of gentle massage and acupressure, and mixtures of Chinese herbs intended to restore a sense of balance throughout the body's systems. Additionally, technologies such as low-level-laser energy and infrared-light therapy can help alleviate chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation throughout the treated area.
At Total Rejuvenation Center, certified acupuncturist, acupressurist, and licensed massage therapist Victoria Mogilner helps visitors lead more balanced lives. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience?including training in Tibetan medicine under Dr. Dolma, a personal physician to the Dalai Lama?she strives to elevate her clients to "higher levels of health, awareness, and being." She works to reduce clients? stress during reiki healing treatments, which involve the manipulation of bodily energies, or while administering classic massages. Her acupuncture and acupressure sessions target specific spots with small, sterile needles or the hands, aiming to eliminate blockages of energy. Mogilner also specializes in facial-rejuvenation services, employing acupuncture and microcurrents to alleviate the wrinkles and layers of milk moustaches built up over time.
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.
