ChangeWorks is unlike any other hypnosis provider in that we incorporate multiple, highly sophisticated techniques into our client work.  While your first session will focus on hypnosis, in subsequent sessions you will be introduced to one or more of the techniques described on Our Methods page, including biofeedback, brainwave training, EFT, and Eye Movement Integration.  Which techniques are right for you will be determined by your hypnotherapist, based on years of client experience, professional training, and the responses and results you have with the work.

A truly unique, integrative and holistic approach, your experience at ChangeWorks cannot be compared to any other practitioner in the Midwest. Integrating multiple modalities, when appropriately and expertly chosen for the client by trained professionals, has proven to provide quicker and more lasting results for a wide variety of issues.

Since 2007 the professional staff at ChangeWorks has dedicated themselves to reaching the highest level of effectiveness, obtaining training and certifications on multiple integrative modalities. We also own and operate the Midwest Hypnotherapy Academy, the largest facility dedicated to quality training of hypnotherapists in the Midwest, with the most rigorous program (220 hours) in the five state area.  In addition, we work in cooperation with several medical facilities in the Twin Cities, including the Justin Kukowski Center and HealthPartners on their Healthy Discounts program.  Our programs, as well as our staff, are experienced, proven and trusted, giving you the confidence you need to reach your goals more effectively.
