Certified hypnotherapist Lynne Nozicka facilitates wellness by helping clients overcome self-destructive inner monologues and behaviors. Her treatments address a wide breadth of issues, including struggles with weight, smoking, and anxiety.
Every appointment begins with a conversation that focuses on the habits, hang-ups, and issues that each individual wants to target. Nozicka then helps clients to envision their ideal, healthful selves before commencing hypnosis sessions that excavate negative thoughts hidden in the subconscious and replace them with adorable motivational cat posters. To supplement treatment plans, Lynne offers suggestions for permanent lifestyle changes.
Despite the way hypnosis is depicted in movies and TV, patients don't enter into an unconscious state, unaware of the world around them and forced to act like monkeys whenever they hear the word banana. Instead, the reality of hypnosis, according to Meridian Peak Hypnosis, is that it puts patients in touch with their subconscious. Hypnotherapists lead patients into a hypnotic state—something akin to a daydream—where they can address a wide range of issues, including stress, claustrophobia, overeating, and cigarette addiction. At Meridian Peak Hypnosis, hypnotherapists aim to dispel common misconceptions during thorough consultations, walking patients through the process and discussing their issues, before recommending a plan, which may include private sessions.
Having trained at Healthy Soles School of Reflexology, certified reflexologist Gretta Anderson employs an encyclopedic knowledge of extremities to help alleviate patients' pains. During each 50-minute session, Gretta presses zones on palms and soles that correspond to areas of bodily tension, causing stress to melt away faster than a snowman eating a habanero pepper in a hot tub. When appropriate, this body mender will employ essential oils or hot-stone therapy to enhance the results of her relaxing treatment. Well-aimed pressure can relieve discomfort, enhance immune response, and prepare clients for future "This Little Piggy Went to Market" competitions.
The power of the mind is impossible to measure. But through her practice, certified hypnotherapist and licensed counselor Diane Sullivan helps her clients overcome difficult life transitions and self-defeating behaviors using their own inner strength. With training in clinical, medical, and pain-management hypnotism, she focuses on issues that may include weight loss, smoking cessation, or reproductive problems. During a session, she taps into the patient's subconscious mind and guides them to take control of their habits. Using the relaxed mind as a suggestible canvas, a hypnotic gastric band session encourages limiting food intake for weight loss and stress management hypnotherapy helps clients deal with pressure.
Since its founding in 1987, Living Lite's weight-loss program has helped thousands of people slim down quickly and almost effortlessly. Instead of simply telling clients to change their eating habits, its practitioners use hypnotic suggestion to root newer, healthier behaviors in the subconscious minds. Clients find themselves exercising regularly and picking more wholesome foods without ever having to think about it consciously. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not induce amnesia, and participants will usually remember everything that happens during the soothing sessions.
