Hypnosis Instructor Cal Banyan


Thanks for visiting our website. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I first became interested in hypnosis as a child, when listening to my grandmother tell me stories about her brother, my Uncle Ward who was a hypnotist. That turned out to be the beginning of a lifelong interest in psychology, philosophy and theology, which has resulted in my professional career in hypnosis.

I know some of you want to know more so please read on.

Thanks again for stopping by,
Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, FNGH. OOB

Cal Weighing around 290 lbs before Hypnosis
I didn't feel good about myself at about 293 to 297 pounds.

Dear Friends,

Yep that's me. I'm about 290 pounds there and I thought that I would eventually explode, because I just kept gaining weight. Then, I became my own experiment and applied what I had been learning from my clients (while they were in hypnosis) to myself. I used this unique understanding of hypnosis on myself. Now, I've lost over 60 pounds to date(1/2001) and continue to become slimmer.

I learned how to beat the fattening compulsion of eating out of emotions like boredom, stress, anxiety, frustration and just being tired. Now I lose weight and I never feel hungry or deprived! Questions? Give us a call.
