Keeping an eye on patients’ all-over health, chiropractor Dr. Ross Gould guides a comprehensive team whose certified massage therapists, acupuncturist, dietitian, and hypnotherapist restore wellness without drugs or surgery. Dr. Gould specializes in relieving chronic pain and treating sports injuries, such as soreness from tripping over ones' own mascot paws. To that end, he performs skeletal adjustments and spinal-decompression therapy, invigorates muscles with electrical stimulation, and crafts custom exercise programs. Next door, pulses race at Powerhouse Gym, where patients test out new flexibility during complimentary access on the day of an appointment. While their vertebrae stack into healthy spines, patients with tots can also take advantage of the gym's childcare services for $1 an hour.
At Serenity Wellness Center, there are three pathways to an inner oasis of calm; and, though each route culminates in self-awareness and stress relief, it has its own expert guide. Massage therapists Diana Menz and Kristen Unzen take clients on a journey of flowing kneads and muscular release. They combine several modalities to create custom massages for their clients, augmenting them all with the warmth of an essential-oil-infused towel treatment.
Elsewhere in the center, licensed aesthetician Afton Land steers guests down the path toward revitalizing skincare. Her facials combat a wide range of conditions using botanical ingredients, such as vitamin C and chamomile for aging and algae and seaweed for dehydration or chapped gills. She also specializes in makeup application and speedy, comfortable waxing treatments.
Hypnotherapist Jackie Spencer takes patrons down the third and final path, which winds into the subconscious. Her confidential hypnotherapy sessions strive to reduce unwanted behaviors such as smoking or overeating. They can address specific phobias as well by encouraging clients to seek change and overcome their obstacles from within.
Though certified hypnotherapist and results strategist Shira Bush can target specific goals––such as stopping smoking or losing weight––she has a much broader objective at heart: assisting her clients in living more fulfilling lives. Calling on more than 20 years of experience, she focuses on positivity and productivity while working with people to conquer insomnia, banish stress, relieve pain, reduce anxiety, and vanquish phobias.
A licensed acupuncturist and clinical herbalist, Laura Bealer holds a master's degree in Chinese medicine. Her career was inspired by how Chinese medicine had helped her health when she was a teenager, and now she helps others with her traditional Chinese and integrative medicine treatments. Laura specializes in digestive issues, pain management, and women’s health.
"Through Hypnotherapy, we can empower ourselves to reach our innate wisdom and highest potential," says Elise Sherman on her website. The certified hypnotherapist and alternative health expert knows what she's talking about. During sessions, she helps clients tap into their subconscious minds, where negative thoughts or messages may dwell. In doing so, they are able to change unwanted behaviors and overcome anxiety, perhaps by quitting smoking or conquering a fear of flying. Past life regression sessions are also available.
Jason Teichner draws from a broad swath of alternative healing techniques. Being a Certified Nutrition Consultant as well as a Certified Hypnotherapist, Jason may also choose to integrate other elements into the session, such as proper foods, nutritional supplements, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as well as suggesting adjunct therapies, such as infrared saunas and structural integration therapy. Jason's hypnosis treatments are designed to help patients heal themselves through subconscious suggestion and without the use of drugs or post-it notes on the cerebellum.
