Certified hypnotherapist Linda Knight believes that all people have the capacity to change themselves. But it takes more than a simple retinal scan to access that power⎯in order for her patients to achieve their personal goals, Linda has to bypass the conscious mind. It is in the subconscious, burdened with the weight of past feelings and events, where she finds the root of many common problems her clients face, including anxiety, smoking addiction, and weight gain. Linda reveals these causes while keeping hypnotized participants open and aware, transforming formerly daunting hurdles into challenges that can be more easily overcome.
Empower Your Mind helps people take the first step toward changing the rest of their lives. During hypnotherapy session—in which clients remain awake and aware of everything around them, but in a deeply relaxed state—professionals help guide the subconscious into making better life decisions. These hypnotherapy sessions can help clients stop smoking, lose weight, and manage pain and stress.
Tim Bartley's passion for helping people surfaces in the amount of time he spent training to be the best hypnotherapist he can be. He earned his certification at the Omni Hypnosis Training Center, went on to study with experts in the field, and is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, one of the largest and oldest hypnosis organizations in the country. Bartley continues to complete annual education courses so that he can keep serving his clients with the latest industry advancements. To date, he has completed thousands of sessions; clients can either visit his office or connect with him over the phone from the comfort of home or a chaise lounge–equipped pay-phone booth.
At Renaissance Alternative Health Center, Bartley assists people with habitual, emotional, and physical disorders with what he calls theta state therapy—a combination of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), psychology, and hypnotherapy techniques. Unlike traditional hypnosis, which employs direct suggestion, Bartley seeks out the root emotional causes of issues such as smoking or depression. He specializes in weight-loss hypnosis, facilitating healthy eating habits by clearing limiting emotions and changing the way the subconscious mind relates to food.
Barb and Bob Huttinga took different paths to get to The Healing Center. Barb found holistic healing after 35 years of working with chemicals that affected her health. Bob, on the other hand, gravitated toward alternative medicine after suffering from the stress of working as a certified physician assistant. Both Barb and Bob found that homeopathic and alternative medicines helped them regain their strength in ways that traditional medicine did not.
Together, they created The Healing Center as a place to share the knowledge and treatments that they have accumulated on their own quests for health. They sell a variety of products such as healthy foods and homeopathic remedies, and offer services such as nutritional counseling, hypnosis for weight control, reflexology, and massages.
