Directed Meditation

John Bates Childress


When his father was diagnosed with Stage IV throat cancer John knew he had to quit after smoking for 20 years. But didn't know how, so at the recommendation of a friend he turned to a hypnotist for help and walked out of her office a non-smoker.


Several years later John's mother was diagnosed with lung cancer.  After watching both of his parents battle cancer John was inspired to learn hypnosis to help others. He originally studied hypnosis at the Mottin and Johnson Institute and was certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists.

A meditative approach to hypnosis for healthier, happier and more productive living.
