Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis doesn't put people to sleep. Instead, a hypnotist guides the client's mind into the realm of the subconscious to discover and dissipate bad habits, traumatic memories, or stress. Great Lakes Hypnosis strives to do just that with every session. Likening it to flipping a switch within the brain, the hypnotist leads the mind's subconscious captain to smoke-free or anger-free waters. Great Lakes Hypnosis also helps with dietary and lifestyle habits, and clients often leave with healthy brain food, such as a relaxation CD that plies their ears with the tranquil noises of nature.
Since its founding in 1987, Living Lite's weight-loss program has helped thousands of people slim down quickly and almost effortlessly. Instead of simply telling clients to change their eating habits, its practitioners use hypnotic suggestion to root newer, healthier behaviors in the subconscious brains. Clients find themselves exercising regularly and picking more wholesome foods without ever having to think about it consciously. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not induce amnesia, and participants will usually remember everything that happens during the soothing sessions.

Doctor of Chiropractic James Wawrow leads the skilled staff at Global Wellness Chiropractic and Laser Centre, which has tended to backs and bodies with wellness programs for two decades. The chiropractic caregivers and certified laser therapists treat each patient's body as a synchronized organism, rather than as a cluster of disparate systems held together with tape. Traditional chiropractic care, including exams and adjustments, can address concerns such as lower-back pain, headaches, and sciatica. But the practitioners also move clients toward optimal health with the aid of low-level lasers, which, when applied to acupuncture points, can channel the body's flow of energy to promote healing.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
