Growing up, Chris Hrabovsky was often told he should become either a radio personality or a hypnotist because of his mellow baritone voice. After a stint as a yoga teacher, he eventually chose the latter, opening his own hypnotherapy practice in 2006. Today, he draws on his multidisciplinary background in Kundalini yoga, neurolinguistic programming, and movement-based Brain Gym techniques to enhance his treatments, which are designed to free clients from the effects of painful or stressful past events.
Chris believes that many of these effects are rooted in a kind of sense memory. During times of high stress or fear, the reasoning goes, even the tiniest sensory inputs, such as the sound of a dog barking, can be deeply imprinted on the mind. When similar sensations reoccur, it can trigger seemingly spontaneous anxiety, even long after the traumatic event. The hypnotist's role, Chris says, is to "wake up" the subconscious, so it realizes that in the present moment there is no reason to fear.
To this end, he starts out most sessions with exercises meant to center the client's consciousness in the present moment and that can also be used to soothe stress in the client's daily life. Only at the end of each session does Chris hypnotize his clients, bringing them into a deep state of semiconsciousness so he can make direct suggestions to the subconscious. These techniques, in the course of multiple sessions, can be tailored to pursue a wide variety of goals including working out deep relational conflicts, quitting smoking, and losing weight.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Robert Miles has performed more than 6,000 cosmetic procedures?and pioneered a new one, which he dubs 3D Body Sculpting. The cutting-edge procedure has effects similar to liposuction, but without the hassle of general anesthesia. VASER Lipo contours physiques using ultrasonic waves, tightening the skin to prevent sagging, and liquefying or vaporizing fat, all during one procedure. The results can include a more shapely physique and sleeker silhouettes.
Debbie Dubickas wasn’t always a clinical hypnotherapist, and the Scotland native never thought she'd end up in Florida. She's owned and managed a diverse array of businesses, but it seems it was only a matter of time before she found her calling. Her whole life, Debbie has been fascinated by hypnosis and psychology, and been a listening ear for friends and family. After a stretch of life-changing spiritual experiences, she decided to become certified in clinical hypnotherapy.
Debbie has helped clients on both sides of the Atlantic improve their lives through targeted suggestion. She's registered with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and uses sessions to set positive intentions and help clients regress back to the causes of problematic behaviors. Sessions typically range from one to two hours as clients untangle and free themselves from unhealthy eating habits, smoking, or fears.
Essential oils, gemstones, crystals and the body's natural energy pasterns. These are a few of the tools Dee Woolridge uses to facilitate healing and relaxation. At Quintessence Alternative Health Therapies, she also seizes upon her natural intuition and empathy to strengthen overall well-being. With those tools and skills, she performs services that align chakras and auras, alleviate stress and pain, and foster positive psyches. Balancing energy with reiki and assisting clients with hypnotherapy are a couple more methods she uses to regenerate, rejuvenate, and heal.
Moureen Tansuwat uses the art of hypnosis to help clients combat weight issues, addictions to smoking, insomnia, and test anxiety. She also hosts a tea and cookies support group that provides a safe environment for individuals to express their feelings.
There are many paths to self improvement. The Laser and Cosmetic Center recognizes both internal and external routes to perfection. Hypnotherapist Maureen draws on experience accumulated at Temple, Barry, and Harvard universities to help patrons use their own hidden inner strengths to quit smoking, lose weight, or improve their general mindsets.
Dr. A. Valdes, the resident physician at the center, helps work on the surface to work towards beauty. He isn't fond of scalpels, preferring to rejuvenate his clients' faces without surgery, smoothing out wrinkles and adding volume with dermal injections. He administers injections of Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and other fillers, targeting areas such as crow's feet and smile lines. He can even perform non-surgical face-lifts and lessen double chins without hiding one beneath a Victorian ruff.
The center's expert staff also performs a variety of other cosmetic treatments. Their Candela laser removes unwanted body hair, as do electrolysis sessions. Facials, microdermabrasion, and clinical peels help to clarify complexions, while permanent makeup lends definition to eyebrows and lips. There's a Harvard-educated hypnotherapist on staff as well, who strives to curb bad habits and addictions.
