In today's youth culture, the visible effects of life on our faces can be a bit of a drawback. Yet the cost and dangers of plastic surgery seem too extreme and a maybe little vain. Phil has successfully developed a new "Hypno Botox" method based on a combination of aromatherapy, energy healing and hypnotherapy. Pain free and inexpensive.
Also, most people understand that exercise is an integral part of losing weight. However, not everyone has the time or motivation to go to the gym regularly. To supplement his work as the most experienced Hypno-Band practitioner in Wakefield, Phil has developed the Body-forming Hypnocise and HypnoJog products. Based on recent research that showed that athletes who just thought about exercising increased muscle mass up to 13% more than those who did no exercise, these CDs take you on a virtual trip to the gym and the use of weights or a on pleasant jog through the countryside; these could help you shape your body and build your muscles.
