Healthy relationships with food beget other healthy lifestyle choices, which explains why so many dieters end up marrying their dinner salads. Toss a mixed-green bouquet with today's Groupon: for $199, you get three weight-loss hypnosis sessions and two CDs from Tom Nicoli, with locations in Woburn and Salem. Nicoli only practices at the Woburn office once a week, so it's recommended to reserve appointments for that location well in advance.
Featured in numerous media outlets including Dateline NBC and Shape Magazine, board-certified hypnotist Tom Nicoli guides the mind in its quest to reverse unhealthy behaviors through positive, reparative thought. Tom's A Better You weight-loss series primes client psyches to opt for healthier eats, boost physical activity, and refrain from carrying any more unnecessary anvils. Rather than pine on each patient's mistakes, Tom tries to mend negative patterns such as emotional eating, cravings, and portion control through positive motivation and the reversal of unconscious habits. Most clients schedule their trio of sessions over a 2–3 week span, and, although some see positive results after only three appointments, others may require additional sessions before feeling ready to reconnect with their estranged bathroom scales. For at-home reiteration, Tom also supplies his clients with two 27-minute CDs chockfull of aural support.
A Better You Hypnosis
Anyone who's ever made a new year's resolution knows that it can be difficult to stay committed to the goals you've set. Board-certified hypnotist Tom Nicoli doesn't see this common phenomenon as a matter of laziness or faulty willpower—instead, he finds that our intentions are often undermined by unconscious habits and impulses. At A Better You Hypnosis, it's his job to replace those subterranean forces with more positive ones through hypnosis.
Viewers of Dateline NBC's Ultimate Diet Challenge got a good look at the results of Nicoli's practice in 2004 when he successfully helped a pastry chef shed 40 pounds despite a job that practically demands sipping cake batter. Weight loss is a common goal for his private clients, and he's turned his experience into a set of motivational CDs that got top rating from Shape magazine. But people also turn to him simply to reduce stress and boost confidence. Over the course of several sessions, Nicoli lays the groundwork for them to reinforce their positive new habits on their own throughout their lives.
