s A Personal Message from Dr. Brady


Hypnosis is just now coming into its own. More and more people are now using Hypnosis and reaping the benefits that it offers. This group includes doctors, nurses, hospitals, and a variety of other professionals.

Specials and documentaries on shows such as 60 Minutes, Dateline and Primetime Live as well as others are seen almost weekly on the great rewards hypnosis can bring to people who are seeking help; help for fear, anxiety, pain control, weight loss, smoking, just to name a few.

It has been shown by articles in the Wall street Journal, Good Housekeeping and others as a very beneficial modality.

As more and more people discover the benefits of the power of the mind, this business can only continue to grow. You too can get in on the ground floor, without any previous educational experience necessary.

See for yourself what everyone is talking about, check it out for yourself!

Yours in success,
Dr. Brady
