Gene Hirschel created the Vital Trance therapy method, combining the hypnotism and behavior-changing techniques he's mastered in his more than 25-year career. In that time, he's taught his methods to students around the country and the world, earning multiple certifications and helping countless clients change their lives through hynotherapy. At Vital Trance, his specialties include smoking cessation, weight management, stress, anxiety, phobias, and even sports-enhancement therapy for golfers, skiers, and professional couch surfers.
Licensed massage therapist and Move2Wellness owner Rob Young envisioned his business as a place where clients could come to adjust “their own inner compass.” This compass comprises his company’s logo, which is fitting given that his relaxing massage work charts such a direct course for his customers to follow in order to feel renewed. Alongside Rob is a team of professionals equally well versed in the healing arts, including yoga instructors, reiki practitioners, a naturopathic physician, and a qi gong instructor.
According to certified master hypnotist Alexandra Janelli, hypnosis isn't as flashy as it appears in a stage show. It's more subtle, a process that's achieved through breathing, listening, and visualization that helps clients tap into their subconscious state and replace negative associations with positive ones. Subtlety does not, however, equal ineffectiveness. Over the years, Alexandra has helped her clients at Theta Spring Hypnosis tackle a range of addictions, bad habits, and personal life problems. She also dabbles in more complicated areas, offering hypnosis for actors designed to improve memorization skills and confidence, combatting clients? fears of flying through hypnotherapy rather than a confrontation with the pigeon that used to bully them on their walks to school.
Dr. Yves Joseph Jeudy, New Age Relaxation Center’s experienced, certified hypnotherapist, empowers clients to achieve their weight-loss goals through relaxing gastric-band hypnotherapy sessions. In a consultation, clients discuss their challenges and goals with Dr. Jeudy, giving him key information to fully personalize the session or ghostwrite their autobiography. A comfortable couch cradles clients as Dr. Jeudy’s voice guides them into deep relaxation. Over the course of the session, gentle suggestions curb appetites, helping clients lose weight naturally without resorting to surgery or finding a new home on a planet with a lower gravitational field.
The experts at the International Center for Positive Change and Hypnosis arm clients with the skills they need to pursue their personal goals and drop the notions that hold them back. During the neurolinguistic-programming practitioner course, expert mind molders Sarah Carson, Shawn Carson, and Jess Marion introduce participants to NLP, a system that helps individuals recognize both positive and negative patterns in their lives so they don't have to reach decisions by throwing darts at a bunch of magic 8 balls. Many professionals enlist in the NLP practitioner course for business to improve their success in the workplace, which explains the program’s popularity among entrepreneurs, teachers, consultants, and coaches.
When they aren't teaching NLP, Sarah Carson, Shawn Carson, and Jess Marion see clients in both their New York and Philadelphia offices, drawing on their teaching experience to enact positive changes in clients' lives. Instructors also host weekend workshops on topics such as creativity and presentation skills. Their hypnosis sessions train students who want to help others achieve personal change by quitting smoking, reducing stress, or reconnecting with estranged pocket watches.
