"With weight loss the evidence is conclusive...hypnosis does help people reduce."
~~Smithsonian Magazine, 3/99
Tired of the struggle, the embarrassment?
Tired of being MAD at YOURSELF for lacking "control"?
You can lose the painful fat and gain a new healthy life. Using these unique and proven hypnotic suggestions hundreds of clients have lost 10, 30, 60, even 100 pounds! Imagine what you will do! Over and over I hear, at the beginning of the work, "I think about food all the time," or some version of that. By the end of the work, I'm hearing, "I don't even have to think about making good decisions, it just happens automatically," and "I can eat anything I want, but what I WANT has changed."
Really, doesn't that make sense? Do you think naturally thin people THINK about it all the time? They don't, and neither will you, when your subconscious mind is in alignment with your conscious goals. Listen to David's testimonial below:
There are LOTS of reason why people struggle with food. Some of it is childhood messages (clean your plate, etc.), and some of it is due to beliefs and fears that have been taking on as an adult. Sometimes people are just stressed and they use food as stress relief. Working with weight using hypnosis is fascinating because every person is different and so every approach to every client has to be unique, and that's what we excel at -- that's what we teach, is "Diversified, Client Centered Hypnosis." So you know you'll be treated like an individual.
How do you know if hypnosis is for you? Ask yourself these questions:
• Have you tried diets over and over, to have them work for awhile...and then gain the weight back?
• Do you find yourself eating when you know you aren't hungry, and can't figure out WHY?
• Does it seem like every time you make some progress, you end up sliding back to where you began, or worse?
If you can answer Yes to any of the questions above, then hypnosis is right for you.
How do I know? I'm Cindy Locher, and in 1991-1992, I personally went from 175 pounds to 122 pounds, using the power of hypnosis and I've maintained a healthy weight, and a healthy relationship with food, ever since.
I KNOW that hypnosis works for weight loss, because of my experience. I will never forget the look on my co-workers faces the first time I did not partake in the traditional Friday ice cream sundae with all the toppings event (yes, they did this EVERY FRIDAY....that's just crazy!). They were shocked at the change in my behavior, and some of them were resistant to MY change (maybe you've experienced this too). But finally, when they saw me losing weight, they were encouraging.
My story? I was a thin, 120 pound, 21 year old when I married, but quickly was a depressed, very heavy, unhappy young woman, as I realized I was married to an alcoholic. Eating was my solace, and a way of having something that I was in control over, even though ironically I was out of control. The weight came on so fast! If you can relate, you KNOW what I mean. I was angry at myself, but not sure what to do. My Dad created the hypnosis tape that changed my life. Saved my life, really. Because not only did it change my eating and exercise behaviors, it gave me back my self esteem, and I was able to end that relationship and move on to a healthy, happy life.

I believe your hypnosis really worked. I actually felt sick around all the bad food choices this year. NO WEIGHT GAIN between Thanksgiving and Christmas!"" -- Tim F. (Apple Valley, MN)
"Hypnosis works! 33 pounds down in just over 6 months. I know it was the hypnosis because I'd tried everything else and nothing else budged this weight. I still have a ways to go (plan to lose another 30), but NOW I know I will be successful! Thanks!" -- Bill S., Crosby, MN
Hearing about Cindy and hypnotherapy is a blessing. She is very professional and listens to your concerns and works hard with you to attain your goal. I have lost 13 lbs. in six weeks (and continuing!). I am exercising more and I find myself craving more fruits and vegetables instead of junk food. I was also able to quit drinking pop which is a big deal to me since I've been trying to do it for a long time! ... I choose the healthy foods without thinking about it. I don't feel deprived because for the first time in my life, I am actually being good to my body and I feel great!
My friends notice my new behavior ... they (my friends) are getting used to it and actually compliment me on the way I look. The more compliments I get, the more motivated I become!" -- Glenda T.
Little update for you- since the last time I've seen you- I'm down over 50#! Started dating a wonderful man a year ago. Life is sooooo much better! I hope all is well with you! ~~ Linda Auleciems, Nurse Practioner, Cottage Grove, MN, June 2012
I was initially skeptical when considering hypnotherapy. I come from a Catholic background and was uneasy about the source of hypnotic power. Upon my own research, I grew confident that hypnosis did not rely on any dark or dangerous powers. It appeared to be nothing more than seeking assistance to tap into my own inner thoughts, a therapist of sorts to help make sense of the constant scramble of ideas and emotions running through my mind. Not only were these perceptions confirmed upon completing my session, I also discovered much more about the hypnotic process and my own inner self. The experience was more than I could have imagined or hoped for.
My session began with an extensive discussion on how the brain operates and why hypnosis works. My hypnotherapist, Jody Kimmel, then evaluated my own specific situation pertaining to weight. I was amazed at how quickly he understood my concerns when he developed a list of my goals. They were perfectly in tune with what I was striving for. We discussed them carefully together and I felt extremely comfortable moving forward.
Jody did a few brief exercises to familiarize me with the hypnotic process, which made is easier for me to slip into a hypnotic state once we began. I was entirely present while under hypnosis, as opposed to my preconceived notions of a deep sleep I would have little recollection of. Jody was able to expose the root of my weight issues, which stemmed back to my childhood. Under hypnosis, I recalled early moments of childhood I’d never recalled before. In my case, these memories were based around food and the emotions I was conditioned to associate with eating. I experienced what’s best described as a battle between my adult self and my childhood self, bringing to the forefront the clash between who I want to be now as an adult and the innate tendencies of my sub-conscious mind. For the first time in my life, I was able to comprehend and communicate the source of my issues with food. Jody gave both my adult self and my childhood self a fair chance to communicate their side of the combating forces. This made my problem easier to understand and a solution plausible and accessible. My two selves were able to essentially reach an agreement for my overall well being. This was the first great leap towards my success over maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Hypnosis served as therapy for me. After many frustrating years of yo-yoing between success and failure, I made sense of the root of my problems, enabling me to make the changes necessary to reach my ultimate goal. I now understand how futile my surface attempts to control my weight have been because I was able to focus only on the conscious. The depth of my issues reside in the sub-conscious, which hypnosis helped me access. I have a newfound sense of confidence and certainty that I will choose to live a healthy lifestyle. Jody helped me overcome one of my greatest obstacles in life, my own inner self. ~~ Emily Urlacher, 6/15/12
