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.
