Unlike falling asleep, drifting into a state of hypnosis is entirely possible without losing consciousness or wearing footie pajamas. Wander through your wakeful mind with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a 60-minute hypnosis session at Radiant Wellness Hypnosis Institute in Ponte Vedra Beach (a $140 value).
Radiant Wellness's president and master hypnotist James P. Ryan helps clients relieve patients’ phobias and ailments by delving into their conscious and subconscious minds. Hypnosis focuses on relaxing patients in order to circumvent the critical faculty of the brain and engage the imaginative faculty, which is used while reading a book or estimating the half-life of glitter. Settled in a homey office, Ryan helps to usher the hypnotized through their thoughts in order to ease symptoms and reduce discomfort from chronic problems such as addiction, insomnia, and fibromyalgia. Contrary to common hypnosis myths, patrons retain full control during the session and maintain the ability to withhold private information or diary passcodes.
