Anyone who's ever made a new year's resolution knows that it can be difficult to stay committed to the goals you've set. Board-certified hypnotist Tom Nicoli doesn't see this common phenomenon as a matter of laziness or faulty willpower—instead, he finds that our intentions are often undermined by unconscious habits and impulses. At A Better You Hypnosis, it's his job to replace those subterranean forces with more positive ones through hypnosis.
Viewers of Dateline NBC's Ultimate Diet Challenge got a good look at the results of Nicoli's practice in 2004 when he successfully helped a pastry chef shed 40 pounds despite a job that practically demands sipping cake batter. Weight loss is a common goal for his private clients, and he's turned his experience into a set of motivational CDs that got top rating from Shape magazine. But people also turn to him simply to reduce stress and boost confidence. Over the course of several sessions, Nicoli lays the groundwork for them to reinforce their positive new habits on their own throughout their lives.

Canvas my Pix preserves memories by transferring customers’ photographs to canvas prints, window shades, and wall decals. Guests upload a high-resolution photograph of their children, classic car, or favorite white wall. From there, the company uses a three-dimensional ink system to produce a crisp image onto a UV-protected, water-resistant print. Canvas my Pix can also spruce up mailboxes, laptops, and other surfaces with photo prints.
Christine Lucas, owner of Complete Mind and Body, knows that a fulfilling diet doesn’t just eliminate pounds. It also acts as a springboard to healthy life choices that lead to greater happiness. Her approach to nutrition begins with detailed client consultations to determine their unique nutritional needs; after all, she writes,
“one person’s food is another person’s poison.” Lucas also looks at what she calls the “primary foods”: her clients’ stress level, career fulfillment, and whether their exercise regimen ends at bench-pressing spoonsful of ice cream.
Lucas brings enthusiasm and empathy to her practice because she’s tackled health issues in her own life. After a car accident years ago, doctors told Lucas she’d have to give up her active lifestyle due to a back injury and her weight. Undeterred, Lucas lost 40 pounds. Her discipline and dedication to holistic health helped her to reclaim the life she wanted, and she applies these lessons to her present-day clients.
