In her more than 20 years working as a certified hypnotherapist, Donna Hale?who has a master's degree in psychology?has helped everyone from athletes to celebrities to powerful business executives improve their health and wellness. She even created a sleep program for the New York City firefighters at Ground Zero.
At InnerFitness Solutions, she helps clients regain control of their lives using hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy creates changes in the subconscious mind, the place where self-sabotaging beliefs lie. It can be used to help clients lose weight, break their addictions to nicotine, and reduce stress, among other things. While hypnotherapy is performed, clients enter a state of relaxed, concentrated awareness.
An interest in computer systems brought Martin Canovas to California from his native country of Brazil in 2001, but it would be another complex system that would keep him here. Following his heart, Martin made the move from systems engineer to holistic healer, earning both a master's in traditional Chinese medicine and certification in orthopedic sports medicine. Today, the licensed acupuncturist and herbalist strives to treat people, not their symptoms, by determining root causes before recommending a treatment path that will spark the body's innate healing abilities and latent superpowers. Plans may include the insertion of sterile acupuncture needles to unblock bodily energy as well as herbal supplements to bolster healing. Martin also offers tui na, a blend of massage and acupressure, in his attempts to assuage maladies such as fatigue, gastrointestinal conditions, and allergies.
Certified members of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the husband-and-wife team of James D. and Lynn C. Swearingen have been tapping into patients' subconscious since 2006. The duo delves into clients’ minds to discover causes of anxiety, low self-esteem, and emotional trauma before taking steps toward behavioral change. Their treatments also help guests quit smoking, navigate 12-step counseling, or overcome their fear of taking tests while submerged in a shark tank. During each personalized appointment, the Swearingens train patients in self-hypnosis, which requires a minimum of four 50- to 90-minute sessions to master.
I provide hypnotherapy for getting rid of addictions such as smoking, weight loss, eating disorders, fears such as flying, public speaking, or social anxiety, increasing self-confidence, releasing traumas, achieving goals and more.
If you’ve just relocated to San Francisco and need an instantly furnished dwelling, or if you’re just looking to freshen up the living room with a focal point in the form of a rivet-studded ottoman, Therapy is the source. As one of ten locations around the Bay Area, the Valencia Street shop – two adjacent storefronts, really – carries everything from cowhide rugs to metal wall sculptures to hollow glass coffee tables. Nothing is muted and everything is style-forward, an ethos also found on the clothing side of things. An unequal ratio of women’s-to-men’s prevails, but stalwart San Franciscans of all genders know the keyword for looking good is “layers,” and this contemporary boutique has it all, from undershirts to oven mitts. Sunglasses and boots, bags and bracelets, there’s ordinary retail therapy and then there’s actual Therapy.
