Joan Krueger—a certified hypnotherapist who has been practicing since 1994—has her own metaphor to describe the subconscious mind: she likens it to a filing cabinet filled with the programs that help you function. She believes the key is to rewrite the programs, changing the information so we can function in different ways.
At Joan Krueger Hypnosis, she helps to change habits such as smoking cigarettes overeating, or biting your fingernails. She does this by bringing clients into a relaxed state during which their subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions. She then delivers the suggestion that will enable you to create the changes you desire. Krueger claims a high success rate: according to her website, 80% of clients are able to quit smoking after just one visit.
Featured on The Dr. Oz Show as an alternative to liposuction, high-tech i-Lipo treatments slim circumferences by using lasers instead of incisions. The FDA-approved system can target the hips, waist, or thighs and imitates the body’s natural fat-burning process to break down fat deposits. A sequence of 8–10 treatments—each followed by a brisk walk, a gym visit, or an energetic roll up a hill—typically maximizes results. The clinic facilitates weight loss with alternate methods as well, crafting custom nutrition plans, administering lipotropic B12 injections, and, when advisable, prescribing weight-loss medication.
