I've been having incredible stress at work and I thought I could use some mental R&R and see if I could get help with managing the stress.
I turned to my trusty Yelp cohorts and found Mind Matters.
So I called and asked what their rates were. They only offer 2 hour sessions. I told this Lisa person that 2 hrs sounded a little intense for me as I have never been to anything like this outside of getting a massage. I asked if they were able to help me "break into" it and if I could start with a 1 hr. session.
She literally laughed me off the phone, and said "there is no breaking in, we evaluate you on the phone and if it fits then you do it"
Well geez!, excuse me! I wasn't exactly expecting some chanting yoga lady to laugh at me because I tell her I am nervous about it being my first time. Totally unprofessional.
So I called my mom (who is a physician) and she laughed at me too LOL. She told me to Google "certified hypnotherapist" and yeah I saw why my mom was amused. I can get a certification for $250 tomorrow. Basically they are people who try to mimic what psychologists and psychiatrists do. They have NO formal med school & really aren't qualified in anything legitimate. They may give "good advice" to some people who walk with the impression that they've been "healed" - its kind of like those psychic mediums who read body language and pick up on cues in the conversation. Look at their reviews, most of the people have very little activity and less than 15 reviews on here (which I overlooked before calling) - that's always the first sign of what I call Yelp fraud lol.
That's why I pay huge insurance premiums so I can get access to real physicians, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.
The best thing you can do for your health! – When I first started going to the group sessions I couldnt lay still, I was in alot of pain and I wasnt sleeping well at night. I was able to lay still and go deep into hypnotherapy within just a few sessions thereby gaining so many benefits, my pain went away in my back and lower legs, my sleep was deep and I woke up rested and life just became easier, there was less struggle. If you are looking for that missing piece in your healthy life practice this is it!! The information they share in their hypnotherapy group session regarding a plant based way of eating is invaluable! Go plant strong! Thanks Dale!
'A Mind Matters Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Center' – I met Lisa Hubler and Dale Jaffe at a local yoga center where they were teaching a workshop on Yoga Nidra. This class was transformational in itself and was only a hint at what working with LIsa one on one in her studio 'A Mind Matters', could do to radically improve my life.
After the very first session of hypnosis and hypnotherapy I felt a major change in the quality of my life and after each session the changes for the better were just as strong, Her method of hypnosis is amazing, I had tried hypnotherapy before but it was nothing compared to this. LIsa really listens to what is going in my life that I and then tailors a wonderfully relaxing and yet highly effective hypnosis session. Each session is recorded and you have the option of taking a cd home to listen to. I highly recommend using the cd's daily as the transformations are nothing short of incredible. My anxiety levels have dropped to almost nothing now, weight has dropped off, my relationships have improved dramatically and work has picked up. I look years younger and get a lot of compliments, sleep through the night and wake up feeling totally refreshed. Youth and beauty in a wonderful session! Do you need any more reasons to book?! I will definitely continue to visit Lisa as I really feel these are so life enhancing and without her help I don't see how I'd have made the progress I so wanted to make. When you call to make a booking you'll be so intrigued by her calm manner and wonderful voice.
I strongly urge anyone wishing to make any changes in their life or if you'de like 'a general well-being tune-up ' to call and make an appointment. Lastly but most importantly Lisa and Dale are kind, wonderful people who really do care about their clients.
Good Bye Anxiety... Good Bye Sleepless Nights – A Mind Matters was a true blessing for me. I had been experiencing some really bad anxiety as well as having extreme difficulties sleeping. I heard about Lisa through the grape vine and figured at that time I was willing to give anything a shot. I had no previous experience with hypnotherapy and didn't now what to expect at all. I should have known from the first time I heard Lisa's voice on her answering machine she was going to be able to help me. She has the most soothing and relaxing voice I've ever heard. I even called back after I left a message, just to hear her voice again. Since every individuals experience with hypnotherapy is different... I'm not going to get into the details of the treatment I received. What I will say is that my anxiety and sleepless nights are gone. Not only that, but I now have the tools to cope with them should they re-surface again. The techniques you learn can be used in many aspects of your life. Lisa is a phenomenal hypnotherapist, therapist, healer, person, etc. and I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Lisa!!!
Deep Relaxation – The greatest thing about deep relaxation is that it gives my body a chance to heal. I've been dealing with digestion problems and this time to relax is essential. Dale made me feel safe and I was able to really let go. My favorite part is that I can take it with me. Dale gives you a CD of your session so you can relax at home!
No drugs, no needles! Natural healing. This is a great blessing!!
This is the real deal – I have never done hypnosis before. After having a traumatic experience, I wasn't able to eat or sleep for almost 3 months. I lost over 20lbs. After my first session with Lisa, I was able to eat again and enjoy a normal nights sleep. It has been almost two months since I started my sessions and I have gained 12lbs and I am sleeping normally. Thank you Lisa, you saved my life. Everyone must have this experience at least once in their lifetime.
Mind Matters Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy Center – I had 6 sessions with Lisa. She has a natural and educated ability to tailor each session to you, and your quickest success. I was new to her method and very quickly became a believer.
Thank you Lisa. Sincerely, Dani
Hypnotherapy at Mind Matters Works Wonders! – I went to Mind Matters, after looking for a place to get hypnotherapy online at my boyfriend's suggestion, because I was having daily anxiety and stress related attacks and feeling really ill most of the time as a result.
I'm a fairly holistic person, but I didn't quite know what to expect. Lisa made me instantly comfortable. She wanted to hear everything I had to say and instead of diagnosing me with something, simply helped me identify the things that were causing my anxiety and making me sick.
After the first session I immediately began to feel better. After four, I know how to manage my stress so that it does not overwhelm me. Rather I am able to see it for what it is, and move on, instead of fixating on it. I feel like I am now in control of my body and life.
I listen to the CDs Lisa made for me of each of our sessions nightly, they are really wonderful and empowering.
I would recommend Mind Matters to anyone, really, even to someone who doesn't have an easily identifiable issue. Anyone would benefit from the calming, self-realization that Lisa helped me come too. Thanks so much Lisa!
Pretty sure this changed my life – I went to four sessions in total with Lisa to work on my fear of public speaking. I was pretty sure that my fear was holding me back in my career since I used to flee any potentially stressful situation where I would have to speak or read out loud. After two session I started a new job and thrived - all the sweatiness and pulse pounding that I was used to just disappeared when I spoke. The result was that I could take leadership positions, and that was noticed by one of the higher-ups. He recommended me for a dream job - I listened to the CDs from the sessions that I did with Lisa the day before the interview and nailed, and they offered me the job. Am I totally cured? - I don't know yet, I haven't had to speak at a wedding or get onstage for anything yet, but in business meetings I feel like a different person. I can actually plan what to say and not what to do so that I mask my nervousness. Life changer for me. Lisa was great. The CDs recorded from our sessions are priceless to me.
I had great sessions with Dale – My friend recommended to have sessions with Dale because I had a stress related twitching eyelid for two weeks. I was really stressed out from my job and just being busy everyday. At one point, I was not able to talk for 2 days. So I decided to give it a try even though I wasn't completely believing in it
Dale seems like a wonderful person. We sat down in his studio and talked about what's going in my life and stuff before the real session. Just by talking to him I already started feeling relaxed and supported. He gave me a lot of advice and technique for meditation to de-stress on everyday bases.
There are some many ways to explain about his hypnosis session but it feels like waking up in the calmest, most supported, most beautiful morning in the most comfortable place.
If you are stressed out or being depressed and can't afford going to Hawaii. I would highly recommend seeing him.
