Certified members of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the husband-and-wife team of James D. and Lynn C. Swearingen have been tapping into patients' subconscious since 2006. The duo delves into clients’ minds to discover causes of anxiety, low self-esteem, and emotional trauma before taking steps toward behavioral change. Their treatments also help guests quit smoking, navigate 12-step counseling, or overcome their fear of taking tests while submerged in a shark tank. During each personalized appointment, the Swearingens train patients in self-hypnosis, which requires a minimum of four 50- to 90-minute sessions to master.
