Valley offers hypnosis for weight control On Wednesday, Aug. 5 beginning at 7 p.m., The Valley Hospital will sponsor a two-hour weight loss program that will provide behavior modification and hypnotic suggestions to participants so they can make permanent lifestyle changes to lose weight naturally and successfully. It is widely known that going on a diet does not address the reasons for overeating. This program will address the internal and external triggers of these unproductive habits by using hypnotic suggestion and behavior modification techniques to recognize them. Hypnosis is a universal way of reaching the subconscious mind and effectively communicating new ideas and suggestions to enhance motivation and change. By communicating in a relaxed (hypnotic) state of mind, internal strengths and resources are brought to light, alternative behavior patterns are discovered, motivation is increased, and the self-confidence to overcome the unhealthy habit is achieved. Participants in the program receive a 30-day reinforcement audiotape and a series of behavior modification cards to be used daily as positive reinforcement. The program fee is $75, which includes the cost of materials and revisits to future seminars for one year for reinforcement. Barbara Van Duyne, a certified professional from Alternative Health Systems in Wayne, will conduct the program. Van Duyne has more than five years experience in the field of habit control. She is a member of the International Association of Counselors and Therapist and the National Guild of Hypnotics. To register, call 1-800-VALLEY 1 (1-800-825-5391).
