The certified hypnotists at Washington DC Hypnosis Center strive to banish unhealthy behavior and stimulate positive thoughts during hypnosis sessions that focus on a variety of topics. Clients yearning to kick a nicotine habit can flock to the two-hour group session, during which hypnotists enlist clinical hypnosis techniques to discourage the urge to smoke and make earrings out of ashtrays. Based on the theory that emotional eating contributes to excess weight, this session also aims to alleviate stressful sources of consumption and motivates attendants to engage in an active lifestyle. The Intro to Hypnosis group sessions devote 90 minutes to exploring other concerns including sports performance issues, nail-biting, and spontaneous cartwheeling before hypnotists address individual needs during a one-on-one consultation.
Those seeking solitary slimming may opt for three Hypno-Band sessions that integrate cognitive behavioral therapy and hypnosis techniques. Each one-hour appointment works to simulate a virtual gastric stomach band, which, unlike a virtual treadmill, may promote significant weight loss.
