Harley Sears helps improve patients' mental and physical well-being with targeted hypnotherapy services. After determining the nature of the problem his patient wishes to resolve, Sears employs a variety of methods, from slowly swinging a pocket watch to snoring sympathetically, to induce a hypnotic state. Patients then embark on a one-hour sleepwalking tour of their subconscious, opening up habitual perceptions, sensations, and behavior patterns to positive change and unsticking "Turkey in the Straw" from its endless repetitions in the brain. Hypnotherapy, like the armies of Genghis Khan, can conquer a variety of personal problems, such as nicotine addiction, overeating, low self-esteem, or fear of hypnosis.
Featured on Good Morning America, the Hypno-Band weight-loss method combines Sears’ hypnosis with behavioral techniques in order to help clients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater keep off weight over time. Over the course of four sessions, Sears uses visualization and suggestion to fit a virtual band to the stomach that may reduce intake. The quartet of one-hour sessions includes tools for gauging success, an MP3 recording to reinforce positive thought patterns and work into dance remixes to create a relaxed party vibe, and plenty of practical wisdom for healthy living.
