Certified hypnotherapist Sue Wiebe believes that people often unknowingly slip into a hypnotic state; it can happen while daydreaming, or while deep in thought. At Reawakening from Within, she helps each client to intentionally achieve that state and then makes suggestions to their engaged subconscious mind. Patrons can choose to focus on ridding themselves of issues such as cigarette addiction, a habit of overeating, or an apprehension of flying in airplanes.
At City Of Roses Hypnosis, Kimball Ralphs CHt, certified by the National Guild of Hypnotherapists and a member of the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association, has the transformative power of suggestion on his side. Before hypnosis sessions take place, the certified hypnotherapist takes time to answer any questions his patients might have. Once patients feel comfortable, he coaxes them into a relaxing, hypnotic state before intoning a series of positive suggestions during their sessions, throughout which patients retain a sense of control. Ideally, the suggestions burrow into the subconscious mind, where they reinforce patients’ personal goals—which could include losing weight, quitting smoking, curbing addictive habits, or landing a job as the manager of a boy band.
Portland Natural Medicine's experts in holistic wellness work closely with patients to root out the underlying causes of illness and discomfort, employing time-tested and modern methods with the goal of rebalancing body and mind. A 90-minute treatment begins with a review of intake forms and medical history, establishing a solid foundation for the physical evaluation. At this point the naturopathic doctor examines the body for symptoms of system imbalance, aches, and phantom tail trauma. Based on these findings and an in-depth discussion about lifestyle, clients receive a customized treatment plan that may encompass diet and supplement recommendations, stress management methods, herbal medicine, and homeopathic remedies.
Above all else, Full Circle Fitness owner Anthony Silva wants his clients to be happy. After earning his Master of Science in Nutrition more than 13 years ago, Tony spent years working with seniors in need of special care, patients with HIV-related illnesses, and recently returned veterans. Tony's experiences and old-school training instilled in him a commitment to helping people lead a happy, balanced life through one-on-one counseling, interactive nutrition coaching, and meal planning, as opposed to health trends that claim to offer instant gratification and quick fixes.
Clients meet in person, over Facetime, and on Skype with their personal coach and bolster their health regimen and nutrition guidance with food diaries and daily motivational check-ins. Full Circle Fitness's holistic approach is tailored to each participant's needs, with acupuncture, massage, and hypnotherapy to bring minds as well as bodies into a blissful state of wellness.
Though Nina Bingham has degrees in psychology, she considers herself a programmer. That's because her hypnotherapy services strive to rewrite codes in the subconscious—specifically, the ones associated with unwanted habits, such as smoking or overeating, and phobias, such as a fear of flying or public speaking.
However, Nina's clients needn't be hypnotized to benefit from her expertise. She also provides life coach services, honing in on specific problems her clients face before developing a plan of action for them. During sessions, Nina identifies each client's aims, analyzes their current situation, gauges the challenges before them, and suggests manageable steps to improve. These consultations can solve personal and professional issues alike, including worries about work efficiency that can't be solved by refusing to sleep.
