Hypnotherapy runs in Rebekah DeMartino's family. She spent her childhood watching her grandfather guide clients to well-being through hypnotherapy—a task to which he devoted 35 years of his life. Today, the certified hypnotherapist honors her grandfather at her hypnotherapy practice, Able Success Hypnosis. Through self-improvement and recreational hypnotherapy, she decimates barriers that keep her clients from wellness. Self-improvement hypnosis can preempt the subconscious precursors to poor behaviors, such as smoking or overeating, or simply ease anxiety. Recreational hypnosis, on the other hand, exists solely for fun, allowing clients to relive memories, unearth the secrets of past lives, or reflect on a deeper level.
Hypnosis strives to reach the root of mental bothers and achieve long-term results. If this is your first foray into the world of this alternative healing method, use your Groupon to learn about the process by discussing goals with a certified holistic practitioner. The hypnotist at Open Hearts, Jessica Buckley, CHt, is certified to practice hypnosis through the IACT (International Association of Counselors and Therapists) and NGH (National Guild of Hypnotists). She'll lend her expertise toward any ailment, including but not limited to: weight loss, smoking cessation, stress, anxiety, and phobias such as novercaphobia, the fear of one's stepmother. After the gentle probing is complete, you'll receive an end-of-session review to sum up the results and recap the 75 minutes. You must call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Certified hypnotherapist Jeffrey Scott Rosen helms Professional Hypnosis Center of Weymouth. A chronic smoker for nearly three decades, Rosen saved his health by seeking out hypnotherapy. After quitting smoking, he turned to hypnosis once again to bolster his weight-loss efforts; he lost 125 pounds. Inspired by his own experiences with subconscious suggestion, he opened a hypnotherapy clinic to guide clients through depression, fear, and addiction to fear.
Marisa Fanelli's first close-up encounter with Western medicine was at the age of 17, when her mother fell ill, and it was riddled with disappointments. Misdiagnoses, ineffective medications and surgeries, and most importantly, doctors' apathy toward her mother's personal well-being, discouraged Marisa. But her negative experience with modern medicine culminated in something positive: an exploration of acupuncture. At Healing Point Therapeutics, Marisa not only uses acupuncture to heal her clients mentally and physically, but she also offers other treatments in the same vein. These treatments include hypnotherapy—which she sometimes blends with acupuncture—cupping, and Gua Sha, a massage-like practice.

A registered nurse for 10 years, Paul Gustafson went on to clock another decade championing and practicing hypnosis through books, television, and private sessions. During free 30-minute phone or in-office consultations, Paul explains his process and helps patients decide if hypnosis suits them. In sessions, he probes each client's subconscious to uncover and then alter his or her attitude toward habits such as emotional eating, substance abuse, or smoking. His hypnosis can also relieve conditions and phobias such as stress, insomnia, nail biting, and fear of public speaking, which afflicts up to 35% of Americans and 100% of silent-film stars. He gradually teaches clients to perform self-hypnosis and supplies them with recordings of each session to aid in home reinforcement.
