We believe that the subconscious mind knows what you need in order to be happy and satisfied with life. We believe people have been prevented from following that instinct by habits of thought, feeling, and behavior learned elsewhere, and believe those habits can be changed. The services we render are held out to the public as non-therapeutic hypnotism, defined as the use of hypnosis to inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis.  We do not represent our services as any form of healthcare or psychotherapy and, despite research to the contrary, by law, make no health benefit claims for our services. We do not personally counsel clients, diagnose medical or mental health problems, or prescribe medications, supplements, diets, or exercise routines.   

All clients will be required to sign an acknowledgement of the above prior to service.
