In 1985, drawing from his own struggles with learning to read, Dr. Ken Gibson set out to change the way we learn. After convening with other experts to discuss challenges children were facing in the classroom, he cocreated a cognitive-skills program that eventually became the foundation of the LearningRx centers.

The hypnosis experts at NoVA Hypnosis and Wellness learned their craft from some of the world's top hypnotists, such as Tom Nicoli and Sheila Granger. One thing they learned? It's a misunderstood art. Widely stereotyped as swinging pendulums and "you are getting very sleepy" pronouncements, hypnosis really involves cultivating intense concentration. In that concentrated state, the goal is for the therapist's suggestions to bypass the patient's conscious mind and penetrate directly into the subconscious. Guided by that process, the team helps clients unleash abilities to tackle struggles, such as stress, chronic pain, body weight or quitting smoking without also quitting inhaling in general.
