Celebrities flock to Galina Semyonova to cure everything from coughs to circulation troubles to addictions. The Moscow native employs Eastern medicinal wonders like herbal tinctures and moxa patches, along with superfine sterile needles to stimulate and heat painful areas. She also e-mails you a list of foods recommended for your condition, as well as those to be avoided—not that you were planning to eat much red bayberry or white eel anyway. Prices start at $85. And be forewarned: No cell phones allowed. They interfere with the room’s energy.
