Enormous Markets For Hypnosis
Here are the facts presented in the best selling book, "Inside America" by public opinion expert Louis Harris.
Weight Loss Market - 78% of all Americans would spend money to lose weight; 35% would like to lose 25 pounds plus; 16% want to lose 16 to 25 pounds; 14% between 11 and 15 pounds.
Stop Smoking - 22%
of adult America smokes. Forty million Americans want to quit this
expensive, dangerous, life consuming habit and will pay hundreds to do
Stress Reduction - 89% of all adult Americans suffer from stress. One hundred fifty-eight million people state they suffer from high stress; 59% report weekly stress while 30% report severe stress everyday.
These are only three markets clinical therapists "cash in" on daily. Add sleep disturbance, self-confidence, anxiety and depression to the list and EVERY ADULT AMERICAN HAS A GENUINE NEED FOR HYPNOSIS.

The media is providing clinical Hypnotherapists with an avalanche of free advertising. Every time one of these articles appears in a national publication my phone rings.
