Types of treatment modalities are as follows

Hypnotherapy

Emotional freedom technique (EFT)

This technique stimulates certain meridian points on the body (mostly face) by taping on them with fingertips. This technique helps releasing blockage within the energy systems which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort.

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR has been recommended for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can help you deal with traumatic experiences; for example, if you have experienced a serious accident or event, such as a car crash or sexual assault, or if you have witnessed a serious incident.

Sleep talk for children

The Sleep Talk process allows the subconscious mind of a child to redefine its belief structure and accept alternate suggestions which upon awakening becomes their truth and reality.The process is about developing a child’s emotional resilience, the mind’s firewall, which protects against negative suggestions,

Hypo-band for weight loss

This system is a non-invasive, behaviour changing method using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy techniques.It is outstanding for obese and heavily overweight people. Using the mind and body connection, it’s as if you are fitting a “virtual gastric band” to the stomach. As a result, the Hypno-Band treatment enables clients to control their diet by eating only when necessary. Combined with nutrition sessions and increased activity, weight loss becomes more achievable and permanent.

Specialized Laboratory Tests

We conduct scientifically proven, evidence based bio-chemical, physiological and genetic based investigations that allow us to look deep into the proper functioning of the body. The tests that are done have not only diagnostic but also predictive values.

Cardio- Fitness Test

This test Identifies level of cardiovascular fitness by determining the maximal amount of oxygen that one’s body can utilize. This test is a more accurate way of determining at which heart rates one should exercise for burning fat, increasing endurance, or improving cardio conditioning. This test is performed on a treadmill up to 80% of individual’s maximum heart rate.
