As a clinical hypnotherapist, she helps her clients get in touch with their innermost wants and needs and assists them in calibrating their lifestyle with what she calls a "personal blueprint." Melanie has been offering her intuitive healing services since 1995, and has played an important role in many people's efforts to kick an addiction, lose weight, or overcome anxieties. Also a certified massage therapist and life coach, she blends her areas of expertise to help her clients live more fulfilling lives.
Certified clinical hypnotherapist Daniel Gross initially became interested in hypnosis to help himself lose weight, beat stress, and regain general health. He created Living Lite Weight Loss to help others with the skills he honed while helping himself. Daniel aims to turn negative habits into positive ones, resolve emotional traumas, an establish new patterns of thought for optimal mental and physical performance. He helps clients at Living Lite seminars and out of his confidential Scotts Valley office with issues that include emotional eating, sugar cravings, and negative body image. Daniel also offers in-house visits and sessions via Skype.
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.
As Daniel Gross sat in his high-school auditorium 30 years ago, watching a stage hypnotist demonstrate his skills with his classmates, he knew he was glimpsing the true power of the subconscious. Now a certified clinical hypnotherapist practicing at Hypnosis Santa Cruz, Daniel taps into that power to place positive suggestions into his patients' minds. He works with clients to help them break unhealthy habits, from smoking to overeating to yelling at professional wrestlers.
