While the conscious mind fulfills preconceived commands, the unconscious mind works unsupervised, sometimes causing negative conditions such as phobias. Fortunately, the holistic practitioners at Direct Mindpower tap into the brain's inner workings to balance out mental health using hypnotherapy. During sessions, Lingfei Hui?a graduate of the Hypnosis Motivation Institute?works with clients to access their subconscious and treat wide-reaching conditions, including nausea, anxiety, and high blood pressure.

The expert also specializes in AcuPranic Therapy, a needle-free form of acupuncture created by Lingfei Hui. Eschewing all physical contact with the body, she taps into life forces to create invisible needles, which she claims can restore a person's chi flow and improve overall health.

To a layman, Candles by Ari may seem an odd label for a spiritual life coach's endeavor. But life coach Ari understands the powerful connection between scent and emotion, one she still experiences whenever she smells an orange?the flavor of her eighth birthday cake. So when she crafts her candles, she always does so with the aromas' therapeutic effects in mind. And during her spiritual life-coaching sessions, she combines scent with astrology, tarot readings, and energy healing to move clients toward achieving their goals.
