Maureen Fox Acupuncture's needle-wielder draws on experience as a registered nurse as well as training in traditional Chinese medicine to battle stress and chronic conditions with acupuncture. Initial sessions last approximately 90 minutes, beginning with a consultation in which patients describe health concerns and expectations through a half-hour interpretive dance. Afterward, skilled hands guide hair-thin needles to some of the roughly 2,000 acupuncture points across the body that can ease anxiety, bolster fertility, and increase the energizing flow of chi.

New patient forms are available for download should a patient desire to fill them out ahead of time or add them to a growing medical-form scrapbook.
Your appointment begins with a comfortable sit-down likely modeled after FDR's fireside chats, where Big Idea Clinic's leading back master, Dr. Tanase, will get to know you front to (more importantly) back. Tanase is a published author, MedHelp International's first chiropractic panel expert, and longtime member of numerous prominent chiropractic organizations, including the International Chiropractic Association, International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association, and the Upper Cervical Society—a testament to his lifelong dedication to his field, as well as a quirky penchant for joining clubs. His careful examination (total $165 value) will determine the best next step. If you need them or just like the way they tickle your pancreas, you will also receive x-rays (a $60 value).

Joan Krueger—a certified hypnotherapist who has been practicing since 1994—has her own metaphor to describe the subconscious mind: she likens it to a filing cabinet filled with the programs that help you function. She believes the key is to rewrite the programs, changing the information so we can function in different ways.
At Joan Krueger Hypnosis, she helps to change habits such as smoking cigarettes overeating, or biting your fingernails. She does this by bringing clients into a relaxed state during which their subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions. She then delivers the suggestion that will enable you to create the changes you desire. Krueger claims a high success rate: according to her website, 80% of clients are able to quit smoking after just one visit.
