Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?


Hypnosis is a state of focused attention, inner absorption and concentration. It's like using a magnifying glass to focus the rays of the sun, making them more powerful. When our minds are concentrated and focused, they are much more powerful!




Why consider Hypnotherapy?


The most effective way to make a change is to make it at its source. Hypnotherapy directly accesses the source of everything you are - your mind. You are already equipped with the most powerful tool for influencing your life. Changes in the mind result in physiological and neurological changes in the brain. Learn how to harness this power to experience all that it can do for you.

Virtual Gastric Band Program


The Virtual Gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss program, developed by Sheila Granger. It has proven to be highly effective in clinical trials. As the name suggests, the system utilizes the concept of a ”virtual” gastric band and clinical hypnotherapy. It successfully harnesses the power that every individual holds within them to make changes in their life. Many clients have benefited from The Virtual Gastric Band program. The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake and that there is no need for more food. It is most definitely NOT a diet – we know that diets only work in the short term. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will enable you to intake smaller portions. Because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry: the issues which cause all diets to fail. As The Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long-term solution to your weight problems. The medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach, and may achieve the same result, but The Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment. Four in-office sessions, spaced over four weeks. You receive individualized recordings to listen to, as well as individualized therapy. $900 for the complete program.




Behavior Modification Program


Clinical Hypnotherapy is beneficial for any type of behavioral modification issue. Most clients experience significant improvement in as little as one session. You will receive pre-session documentation to complete and submit in advance of your session, so that your session will reflect your goals and personal information. Fee for a hypnotherapy package to address a specific behavior modification starts at $600 for four sessions. A single individual customized clinical hypnotherapy session to address your specific issue is $225.





We also offer instruction classes to earn the credential of Certified Hypnotist or Certified Hypnotherapist with the National Guild of Hypnotists.
