At City Of Roses Hypnosis, Kimball Ralphs CHt, certified by the National Guild of Hypnotherapists and a member of the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association, has the transformative power of suggestion on his side. Before hypnosis sessions take place, the certified hypnotherapist takes time to answer any questions his patients might have. Once patients feel comfortable, he coaxes them into a relaxing, hypnotic state before intoning a series of positive suggestions during their sessions, throughout which patients retain a sense of control. Ideally, the suggestions burrow into the subconscious mind, where they reinforce patients’ personal goals—which could include losing weight, quitting smoking, curbing addictive habits, or landing a job as the manager of a boy band.

As Hugo Kugiya of the Associate Press wrote, "To hire Alma Rubenstein is to hire someone to be your very honest, very proactive best friend for five weeks. She will groom you and dress you and compliment you, criticize you, and repair you." Alma, also known as Date Doctor Alma, is a relationship professional who works with her clients to help them find love. Among her services are speed-dating sessions that require a pre-screening (which doubles as a coaching session) and ensures that all the potential suitors at the event are good matches. Alma also coaches guests during Flirting 101 workshops meant to help guests gain confidence, learn effective conversation techniques, and finally stop the habit of batting eyelashes until eyelids quit cooperating.
