Weight Loss

Sadly, people all too often make judgments based on a person's appearance, often mocking, shaming and excluding those who don't meet up to society's falsely perceived ideal images of what healthy looks like. With compromised food production methods, chemical additives and sugar packed ingredients, increased portion sizes and misleading food labels, along with a  plethora of non-factual nutrition advice, it's no wonders why battling the bulge.  Add to this society's over-worked, over-stressed, under nourished lifestyles, this can leave even the most disciplined people struggling with their body weight.

Fortunately, there are natural, healthy, maintainable alternative weight loss methods not requiring fasting, pills, fad diets, and expensive gym-memberships, such as hypnosis.  Through the use of hypnosis, we help you to address the psychological effects of food, your relationship with food, and the emotional and habitual issues that often keeps one stuck in this vicious cycle.  In other words, hypnosis can help you break free from these struggles, so you can take back control over your ability to release unwanted weight and create a healthier, leaner, happier quality of life.  JAX Hypnosis is the area's leading provider of clinical weight loss hypnosis, as evidenced by more success stories than we can count.

Most people are constantly faced with an overwhelming amount of stress.

5 Interesting Stress Facts:

  1. Stress can be a good and constructive emotion, when properly managed and resolved. However, when not properly managed, it can often grow stronger, negatively affecting the health of your mind and body.
  2. Stress and anxiety are cumulative, building and intensifying over time. Clinical studies show that stress negative effects your cardiovascular system, cognitive abilities, metabolism, and digestive systems
  3. Humans are naturally "wired" to respond to stress with a physiological response known as Flight or Fight.  While normal stress keeps this response functioning optimally, chronic stress can hinder the body's ability to plan, sleep, recall information, digest food, and many others negative affects.
  4. Stress affects every cell in your body. Over time, these effects often interfering with the body's normal cellular processes, which can lead to disease and impaired immune systems. 
  5. Suppressing your stress, worries, fear and anxieties will only compound the issue at hand, does not create resolution, and takes one further away from control over their emotions.
