A Message from the Founder…

Our proven methods and successful hypnosis system has helped many individuals improve their lives. Many have stopped smoking, increased their ability to cope with stress and reduced unwanted weight. Allow me to explain why we help so many people reduce weight.

The problems associated with weight are many. Health risks such as high blood pressure and diabetes occur with greater frequency in people who are overweight. The joints and back are painfully stressed to the point that many people must endure the expense and suffering of surgery. Emotional health is also at risk as weight increases, causes poor self-esteem, depression and a lack of self-confidence. Combined with a lack of physical activity, the stage is set for years of pain, embarrassment and frustration.

Are you tired of losing weight only to go through the anguish of gaining it all back again plus a few pounds? Are you fed up with watching other people do things that you are now too uncomfortable to do?

Today, now, the solution to your overweight problem has arrived. In our hypnosis sessions we show you how to beat the binge eating, food cravings, overeating and feeling deprived. Hypnosis can get you off the roller coaster of weight loss and gain without starvation, diets, pills and expensive pre-packaged food.

Through the use of hypnosis, you learn new methods of motivation and control while building self-esteem and self-confidence. After your initial sessions have been completed, reinforcement sessions are available. The entire program is backed up by a written service guarantee. You have absolutely nothing to lose but a lot of pain, misery and excess weight. You may find this program to be the approach for which you have been searching. Call now for a FREE Screening 217-698-9999.

Sincerely yours,

William Mitchell
