From repairing cell phones, computers, refrigerators, and televisions to supplying furniture, such as TV stands and sofas, Baillio's technicians can help with many appliance-related problems.

The unconscious mind is a powerful tool, as Dr. Sumner Waltz knows, since she has years of experience helping patients tap into their subconscious. She lulls clients into a safe state of relaxation, drawing upon experience practicing hypnotherapy since 1986 and receiving her doctorate of hypnotherapy shortly thereafter. During her sessions, she helps clients reach their unconscious minds so that they can address and treat underlying symptoms of ailments such as chronic guilt, grief, depression, phobias, or fear of failure. It can also be used for physical ailments such as high blood pressure or managing pain. Patients can develop inner skills to control and transform mental and emotional states, letting them overcome these obstacles and limitations in their life. During sessions, clients typically explore uncharted pathways of their inner consciousness to reveal hidden emotions and feelings. This often leads to clients making discoveries of which they have no memory, which is why all sessions are recorded on tape, allowing individual clients to heal at their own pace.
