    Hypnosis has been in our family for a very long time. My name is Michael Parr and my father used hypnosis in his stage shows way back in the old Vaudeville days when I was about 5 years old. I was first hypnotised at the age of 10… no, I didn’t have a drinking or gambling problem 🙂 it was not for any specific goal, but just to experience hypnosis. To this day I still recall this wonderful state of relaxation and calmness; an amazing experience that I will never forget.

    I attained my Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy in 1990 and have gone on to help countless people dramatically change behaviours, in generally just one session.

    I now teach hypnosis, run classes and one-on-one sessions and have helped thousands of individuals over the years. I also fly overseas for sessions and have clients fly in to see me.

    When I tell people how I make my living – as a Hypnotherapist helping people lose weight, stop smoking and other issues – they inevitably ask: “Does it work?” My answer usually brightens their eyes with something between excitement and incredulity. “Absolutely it does!”

    This powerful system has developed over decades, being constantly refined and improved. This has been a very fulfilling way of life for me and I feel very blessed to be able to train new people and help change peoples’ lives.

    See my ‘free seminar to change lives’ for your opportunity in this amazing industry!

    Yours in health, Michael Parr – International Master Hypnotherapist, Diploma Clinical Hypnotherapy 1990, Rapid Change Specialist, Certified Life Coach Cert 1V. Life Member International Hypnosis Association.

    There is a lot of mixed information around about the expected outcomes & benefits of a juice fast or concentrated detox program.

    I am always interested in who has written these articles & never surprised to discover the non-believers have not experienced one themselves.

    A different perspective is gained when you understand the premise that by giving your digestive system a rest, you are allowing all of your internal organs to recuperate. In the right environment, this allows you the freedom to focus on what you are experiencing in your life without the distraction of trying to cope with the consequences of what you are choosing to ingest.

    At Rejuvenate Health Retreats, our Behavioural Awareness Workshops encourage you to ‘digest’ the consequences of your current lifestyle choices & the effects of these on your overall health & well-being. We use this information to work together to empower you to feel confident in your ability to ensure your future choices match your desired outcomes.

    Art therapy is an established mental health profession that uses artistic mediums to improve or restore mental, emotional, and physical health.
    Around the world, recognition of art therapy as a unique and valuable field in the healthcare arena is growing. Art therapy is practised in a variety of settings, including mental health clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, schools, prisons, senior living centres, and inpatient facilities.

    Art therapists use techniques that access different areas of the mind to traditional talk therapies. Our brains process sensory and creative processes differently than verbal input. This gives art therapists a unique tool with which to help clients explore both the physical and emotional aspects of their conditions.
