Practices alternative to the mainstream rarely take off right away. That goes for holistic health and wellness.

“As Kathleen says, people used to say ‘don’t tell anyone you’re going to the chiropractor, what is that?!’ But now, people are asking who your chiropractor is,” said Pam Burns, owner of Holistic Balance Mental Health & Hypnotherapy.

Burns, a licensed professional counselor and certified hypnotherapist with more than 20 years of mental health counseling in her background, is part of a trio of alternative health and wellness businesses at 3520 New Hartford Road, Suite 200.

The suite houses the offices of Burns, Sandra Riley-Miller’s Choices Hypnosis and Kathleen Peters’ Stepping Stones Hypnosis.

“We’re each individual businesses, but sometimes we refer our clients to each other, depending on what they’re looking for,” Riley-Miller said. “Each of us has our specialty.”

Riley-MIller, is also a certified hypnotherapist and a reiki master, using the transference of energy to aid in a person’s healing.

Clients commonly use reiki and hypnosis to help overcome bad habits such as smoking, or to address chronic pain, social anxiety, claustrophobia and the like, the women said.

“I tell people it would be pretty boring to watch,” Riley-Miller said with a laugh. “But it’s about activating the healing process. I’ll refuse to do it if I’m not feeling healthy enough; I want to be sure to transfer the right energy.”

At the core of these alternative practices is relaxation, as less stress leads to a healthier immune system. The women agree that their practices should not replace medicine or visits with a physician.
