I could actually use several of these services, they seem like they can really get you into a new, healthier way of thinking, a better mindset. I wonder if they are covered by health insurance. Its almost like getting a bachelors degree in the use of your own body.

I think I am going to research and see what is in my local area, if the prices aren't that bad I would really be interested in what they have to offer.
