This seminar is designed for new and practicing hypnotherapists whose practice would benefit by adding or updating their hypnotherapy weight management program.

With an alarming rise in obesity, weight management and weight loss has become a critical health issue among men, women and children across the U.S. Be part of the solution. Offer your clients proven protocols in private and group settings, to help them find their way out of fad and yo-yo diets, and onto a path of healthy and sustainable weight management.
