Jared: Smoking

Ilan is incredibly talented. My experience quitting smoking through hypnosis was life changing, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anybody looking to make a change.

I started chain smoking when I was 15 years old. I dreaded business meetings and avoided movies. Long flights were out of the question. I was smoking 2 packs a day when a friend recommended I try hypnosis with Ilan.

I was skeptical about the experience, as hypnosis was something I knew nothing about nor had any experience with. Ilan was extremely professional. He listened carefully as I explained my relationship with cigarettes and answered all my questions about hypnosis. Still I didn’t really expect to quit. I just thought maybe it would help me start considering quitting more seriously.

To my surprise, after one enjoyable hypnosis session, I quit smoking completely. We had 2 followup sessions the next week to get rid of any remaining urges. It has been a complete life changing experience. My energy and fitness levels have improved exponentially, as well as just about everything else. I never could have imagined how different life is without smoking!

UPDATE: 10 months later, I'm still not smoking and have no desire to do so. Still can't believe it. Ilan, you literally saved my life! Thank you!

Hannah: Weight Loss

I've lost 30 pounds since my first (of two) hypnosis sessions with Ilan six months ago!

My problems were late night snacking, and lack of motivation to get my butt to the gym. I gave Ilan a detailed account of my issues, including previous diets and programs that I have tried to little or no avail. Ilan designed two hypnosis sessions to fit my needs -- one to address the snacking, and another the next day for the exercise motivation.

The results were incredible. I stopped snacking at night, and I don't know a better way to describe it other than I've experienced a change in my consciousness when I eat. I'm more mindful of what's going on as I take each bite, and I don't always automatically finish everything on my plate like I used to. I started going to the gym like I had a million times before, but this time I've stuck with it for 6 months, and I'm showing no signs of stopping! I am thrilled, my husband is thrilled, my kids are thrilled!
