Phillip Dickerson believes in the power of suggestion. His chosen career path, clinical hypnotherapy, is a subliminal technique that modifies behaviors for the better by implanting self-esteem boosters into dormant portions of the mind. His passion for and dedication to the method has garnered him certification with the National Guild of Hypnotists, the American Board of Hypnotherapy, and 7-Path Hypnosis.
Martin Gonzalez, certified consulting hypnotist, is the brains and calm, soothing voice behind Alpha Omega Hypnosis. He draws on his numerous certifications—including from the American Hypnosis Association and the National Guild of Hypnotists—to personalize sessions for each client. During each appointment, he brings clients into a light state of hypnosis, then uses techniques such as regression or neurolinguistic programming to help them lose weight, boost confidence, alleviate phobias, or deal with anxiety, among other services.
During the hot cocoa stone massage at Sacred Senses Spa, a soothing cocoa-flavored balm energizes skin and restores its wholesome glow. A therapist then administers a deeply relaxing massage, utilizing warm stones to further unwind coiled muscles. Of course, not every visit to the spa has to feature cocoa balms and hot stones, but the goal is always the same: dissolve stress and revitalize the body. Certified therapists do just that via a wide array of modalities, ranging from deep-tissue sessions to trigger point therapy. They also offer hypnosis as a method for self-improvement, meaning you no longer have to stare into the windmills at local mini golf courses to gain access to your subconscious.
At Davisson Clinic, Dr. Harvey Davisson and counselor Lisa Davisson plumb the depths of the subconscious during psychological counseling and hypnosis sessions. Each practitioner boasts a separate specialization; Harvey focuses on mitigating the effects of ADD and ADHD, and Lisa spends her time helping kids and adolescents cope with death and divorce. Their hypnosis sessions help patients focus on common goals, such as weight loss (for those looking to shed a few pounds) or smoking cessation (for those who are addicted to making their own barbecue). When it comes to weight loss, treatments don't end with counseling sessions; the clinic actually offers a holistic plan that incorporates hypnosis, personal training, and supplements.
Randall Winter and Nadine Romain, the experts behind The New You, believe that every person has an inner ability to heal himself or herself. During hypnosis sessions, they help their clients stop bad habits and increase good behaviors. These sessions can also target conditions such as chronic pain or anxiety.
