In place of aromatherapy oils, prescription medications, and invasive surgeries, the team of licensed chiropractors and massage therapists at USA Massage & Chiropractic rely on holistic treatment modalities that target the symptoms as well as the underlying causes of chronic pain. The therapists begin by identifying each client's particular needs, pinpointing the locations of everything from knotted muscles to misaligned discs. From there, they recommend a personalized treatment regimen that can incorporate spinal-decompression therapy, chiropractor-directed massages, or any number of pain-alleviating procedures. Regardless of the specific modality, every treatment has the same goal—to help clients return to an unencumbered, pain-free lifestyle.
NYC Points employs three experienced acupuncturists who all have at least 4,000 hours of training and national certification, along with clinical internships, beneath their collective snakeskin belt. After an initial consultation to determine your individual needs and health concerns, one of these skilled practitioners of the ancient art will perform a full treatment to address the issues most relevant to your body and mind. Acupuncture operates via a network of channels the Chinese mapped, through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that the uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. The treatments apply hair-thin needles, usually in pain-free fashion, to key pressure points along these channels, which, according to the art of ancient Chinese medicine, affects helpful change. Evict subsurface aches from a hurting hibernation and re-introduce your body to full-figured wellness with a consultation and treatment from NYC Points Acupuncture.

The experts at the International Center for Positive Change and Hypnosis arm clients with the skills they need to pursue their personal goals and drop the notions that hold them back. During the neurolinguistic-programming practitioner course, expert mind molders Sarah Carson, Shawn Carson, and Jess Marion introduce participants to NLP, a system that helps individuals recognize both positive and negative patterns in their lives so they don't have to reach decisions by throwing darts at a bunch of magic 8 balls. Many professionals enlist in the NLP practitioner course for business to improve their success in the workplace, which explains the program’s popularity among entrepreneurs, teachers, consultants, and coaches.
When they aren't teaching NLP, Sarah Carson, Shawn Carson, and Jess Marion see clients in both their New York and Philadelphia offices, drawing on their teaching experience to enact positive changes in clients' lives. Instructors also host weekend workshops on topics such as creativity and presentation skills. Their hypnosis sessions train students who want to help others achieve personal change by quitting smoking, reducing stress, or reconnecting with estranged pocket watches.
According to certified master hypnotist Alexandra Janelli, hypnosis isn't as flashy as it appears in a stage show. It's more subtle, a process that's achieved through breathing, listening, and visualization that helps clients tap into their subconscious state and replace negative associations with positive ones. Subtlety does not, however, equal ineffectiveness. Over the years, Alexandra has helped her clients at Theta Spring Hypnosis tackle a range of addictions, bad habits, and personal life problems. She also dabbles in more complicated areas, offering hypnosis for actors designed to improve memorization skills and confidence, combatting clients’ fears of flying through hypnotherapy rather than a confrontation with the pigeon that used to bully them on their walks to school.
A seasoned Bolivian folk dancer, Doctor of Chiropractic Rodrigo A. Imaña is familiar with taking precision steps, and he applies this same fastidious philosophy at his chiropractic office. Before treating patients with his gentle adjustments, he first evaluates the body with computerized nervous-system equipment and x-rays. Once he’s deduced the exact location of the pinched nerve or slipped disk, he eases it back into position and then follows up with posttreatment x-rays.
Martial-arts virtuoso and instructor James Sherman earned an official certification from the revered Israeli Krav Maga Association after completing more than 500 hours of close-quarters combat training in Israel. Sherman, who has received attention from Time Out New York, leads groups and individuals—including executives and celebrities such as magician David Blaine, singer-songwriter John Mayer, and BBC America president Herb Scannell—through the rigorous self-defense regimen, which includes potent kicks, punches, strikes, and chokeholds designed to ward off bullies, violent attackers, and amorous ivy vines. In addition, Sherman illustrates how Krav maga's cardiovascular intensity can bolster students' strength, speed, and flexibility.
