Stones Institute founder Daryl Stones, a member of Mensa and National Guild of Hypnotists practitioner, tailors hypnotherapy sessions to unearth and extinguish the causes of various physical and mental ailments, such as anxiety, panic attacks, and smoking addictions. Each personalized 50-minute session delves into the underlying reasons behind these afflictions, combating problems with supportive reinforcement to uproot paralyzing phobias, confidence issues, Cold War–sleeper-cell triggers, and sleep disorders that stand in the way of comfortable living. Sessions often spill past the 50-minute mark as Daryl customizes each subconscious exploration to the needs of her clients. Stones Institute also offers energywork and healing services, including reiki.
Certified hypnotherapist Lynne Nozicka facilitates wellness by helping clients overcome self-destructive inner monologues and behaviors. Her treatments address a wide breadth of issues, including struggles with weight, smoking, and anxiety.
Every appointment begins with a conversation that focuses on the habits, hang-ups, and issues that each individual wants to target. Nozicka then helps clients to envision their ideal, healthful selves before commencing hypnosis sessions that excavate negative thoughts hidden in the subconscious and replace them with adorable motivational cat posters. To supplement treatment plans, Lynne offers suggestions for permanent lifestyle changes.
