Certified hypnotherapist Lynne Nozicka facilitates wellness by helping clients overcome self-destructive inner monologues and behaviors. Her treatments address a wide breadth of issues, including struggles with weight, smoking, and anxiety.
Every appointment begins with a conversation that focuses on the habits, hang-ups, and issues that each individual wants to target. Nozicka then helps clients to envision their ideal, healthful selves before commencing hypnosis sessions that excavate negative thoughts hidden in the subconscious and replace them with adorable motivational cat posters. To supplement treatment plans, Lynne offers suggestions for permanent lifestyle changes.
The power of the mind is impossible to measure. But through her practice, certified hypnotherapist and licensed counselor Diane Sullivan helps her clients overcome difficult life transitions and self-defeating behaviors using their own inner strength. With training in clinical, medical, and pain-management hypnotism, she focuses on issues that may include weight loss, smoking cessation, or reproductive problems. During a session, she taps into the patient's subconscious mind and guides them to take control of their habits. Using the relaxed mind as a suggestible canvas, a hypnotic gastric band session encourages limiting food intake for weight loss and stress management hypnotherapy helps clients deal with pressure.
Dave Granell, a consulting hypnotist certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists, doesn't buy into hypnosis myths. Rather, he sees hypnosis as a state of heightened awareness in which the subconscious mind can effectively absorb constructive advice. At Granell Hypnosis, he uses this method to help clients achieve goals that range from kicking a destructive habit to improving academic performance.
A Choice for Life's team of natural health managers, colon therapists, and nutrition consultants combines its healing arts to personalize plans for wellness within a 2,700-square-foot facility. Five-day juice cleanses flush toxic vestiges of processed food, drugs, alcohol, and swallowed glow sticks with herbal- and protein-based potables or supplements augmented by carefully selected fruits, veggies, or meats. FDA-approved colon-hydrotherapy equipment focuses on freeing the digestive tract of built-up waste with 10–20 gallons of water channeled gently into undercarriages after flowing through an antibacterial UV-filtration device. Health experts also completely makeover lifestyles as they mold new regimes around a medicinal philosophy that combines western practices with holistic methods and proper nutrition. A Choice for Life makes use of modern technology to diagnose ailments, such as employing a Xyto Compass hand scanner to pinpoint deficiencies that throw off internal pH balances faster than chugging a beaker of hydrochloric acid.
AcuBalance Wellness Center is the longtime dream of friends and college mates Ausra Januseviciute and Vera Kulezic. While interning together, the two friends learned they shared the same passion not only for acupuncture, but also for other facets of holistic healing and Eastern philosophy. The central tenet of this philosophy, according to Ausra, is to "discover the root cause" of ailments rather than adhering to the Western practice of soothing away symptoms by ingesting medicine or Ella Fitzgerald's throw pillows.
Each client undergoes a thorough consultation, which the practitioner uses to develop an individualized treatment plan. These treatments are designed to combat maladies ranging from chronic headaches and digestive issues to anxiety and depression. Sessions take place either in private rooms filled with soothing music and aromatic incense, or in the main treatment room, which re-creates the community acupuncture sessions in China with five reclining chairs.
