Certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists, Bob Martel helps his clients to reach their full potential by guiding them to a heightened mental state of awareness and relaxation. By building a rapport with clients, Bob is able to make the positive suggestions that help them to address ailments such as anxiety, low self-esteem, and fears. Hypnosis can also mitigate specific urges such as overeating or smoking. For skeptics, Bob willingly debunks common stereotypes about the practice, stressing that people cannot be hypnotized against their will, get stuck in a daydream-like state, or reveal the secret combination to their dream diary.
At Life Achieved, certified life coach and hypnotherapist Harry Kroner guides clients toward healthier lifestyles by helping them to overcome a range of fears and personal blockades.

At Pure Self-Reflection, healer Rose, a social worker, taps into an arsenal of nontraditional techniques to rejuvenate the spirit. She tears down the walls that trap clients in poor health or mental states, and helps them move forward with hypnotherapy, reiki, chakra-aligning, past-life regression, or other holistic methods. By doing so, she gets as the root of issues, from smoking addiction to stress to pain.
Marisa Fanelli's first close-up encounter with Western medicine was at the age of 17, when her mother fell ill, and it was riddled with disappointments. Misdiagnoses, ineffective medications and surgeries, and most importantly, doctors' apathy toward her mother's personal well-being, discouraged Marisa. But her negative experience with modern medicine culminated in something positive: an exploration of acupuncture. At Healing Point Therapeutics, Marisa not only uses acupuncture to heal her clients mentally and physically, but she also offers other treatments in the same vein. These treatments include hypnotherapy—which she sometimes blends with acupuncture—cupping, and Gua Sha, a massage-like practice.
