I have been a smoker for 26 years. I went to PA Hypnosis in Warrendale and worked with Dan Vitchoff. Dan and his staff are very caring people and want you to succeed. They work with you to achieve your goals, and yippie, I finally quit smoking.. They have hearts of giants and are absolutely amazing people. If you are looking to quit smoking or lose weight, I highly recommend Dan. He is truly a life saver.
I am now working with Dan to lose weight and have lost 23 pounds so far. If you need help, PA Hypnosis is the one to call.
I had a great experience at PA Hypnosis Center. Dan Vitchoff spent a lot of time with me from the first free consultation all the way up until my last session. He even told me if I ever needed additional help he would give me extra sessions free of charge. I stopped smoking and lost 25 pounds. My main concern was that I didn't want to gain weight when I stopped smoking. He said he would help me stop smoking without gaining weight, I really didn't think that was possible but like I said,not only did I stop smoking, I lost weight too. I have sent a lot of people from my work there and they were all really happy too.
Dan Vitchoff helped me stop smoking in May and I have not touched a cigarette since. I have not had any cravings or desires since my quit day. He also helped me with my food cravings. I have not eaten any sugar, chocolate, candy or sweets. I went down two sizes so far and I feel great. I highly recommend PA Hypnosis Center.
I did have the same experience as a few of the reviews that I read. I went to PA Hypnosis with an open mind to quit smoking. During my initial consultation, Dan V. was very attentive and spent a great deal of time with me (as any good salesman would) and future visits were not the same. He spoke with me for a few minutes, put the headphones and CD on and left...then he never came back. His staff came in to let me know I was done. For the cost, I expected the personal session not a CD. During two of my sessions, he was interrupted and said he'd be right back...half hour later, he came back in to get me plugged in (thank goodness the seats were comfy)
During my last session, Dan V. came in to get me started and asked for any cigarettes and lighters. No one told me to bring these. I left them with my hubby as he was still smoking. After my "quit" session, I called a day or so later and spoke with an office member. I said, this is like quitting cold turkey (which I've done a few times), I see no difference, Is this how it's supposed to be? She said, are you listening to the CD's. I said, what CDs? I was never given any. He didn't even see me after the last session. She said to give it a few more days and then call if it wasn't any better.
I sent a letter outlining my experience & to cancel my last appt in writing. I requested a partial refund as the hypnosis did not work for me (I was smoking again of course). I got no response. Not a phone call, not a letter...NOTHING. I wasn't totally surprised as after he got my money, he was not nearly as attentive as before I paid him.
My personal feeling is that if you want something, you have to focus and just do it. I have recently quit smoking on my own and feel much better about it since I did it myself. There is no easy way to do the hard things. I was hoping for an easy quit but I don't believe this is possible. I would NOT recommend PA Hypnosis unless you go in with lots of questions and all the facts AND are prepared to lose money if it doesn't work because you will not get a refund (as you can see by the other reviews where it didn't work). Perhaps hypnosis doesn't work for everyone.
Dan Vitchoff helped me lose 15 stubborn pounds that I had been trying to get off for years! My consultation was great, very informative, he took a lot of time with me and explained why it can be so hard to change behaviors on my own. He made me feel like there was hope. I have tried everything and this 15 pounds had been nagging at me for so long. It just wouldn't go away no matter what I did. My first session was so relaxing, he told me not to expect it to be "magic" hypnosis that there was no such thing. He explained these are small changes that add up to big results over a period of time and that's exactly what happened. I don't drink pop anymore. I don't have any desires for sweets or carbs. I am enjoying exercise so much more than I ever have and I've gone down a full dress size. I've never felt this confident about myself before. Thank you so much, Dan Vitchoff and PA Hypnosis Center!
Wow I did not have the same experience as many that were listed below. My initial free consultation lasted 2 hours because Dan kept leaving and saying he would be back in five minutes and then not be back for a half hour this happened two times. We discussed two plans and my credit cards was overcharged. When I questioned this i was told that my credit card could not be credited back because of cost. There was a lot of pressure at that time to just drop it but I insisted on them writing me a check for the sessions I had not agreed upon. In that first meeting there was a lot of bragging about past clients like crown princes etc . I felt very uncomfortable. I should have walked away then....The sessions consist of pre-recorded tapes. At the end I didn't know what to do so I just stayed in the room and Dan eventually came back and asked me what I though the length of the tape had been, I said pretty long. I was then questioned did it last more than 10 minutes? Yes 15? Yes..20? Yes I think more than 20. Then I was asked in a sharp voice, is it you think or you know. I was then told that there is a difference. Was I absolutely certain. He then explained that the average person is hypnotized in 12 minutes or less. I knew I was in trouble as I remembered every bit of the 45 minute tape....When I expressed my concerns that it didn't seem to be working and at subsequent sessions I was told don't worry it will work. It never did.. I didn't start liking vegetables or lean proteins more than I had and I didn't like chocolate or starches any less. I didn't lose a pound..I was told that it was my fault because I was negative about not liking vegetables. I replied that I had never liked vegetables and had hoped that this process would change that. I didn't make a $ investment in something that I wanted to fail. Again I was told that it will work and to make sure I was drinking the protein shakes they sell.
The last session I went to I didn't even see Dan, the receptionist put in the tape. There was never any follow up. You just came in put on a visor that covered your eyes and they popped in a tape and then when it was done you just left.
I have left several messages about receiving a refund for the second plan I signed up for and have heard nothing. Be very careful and only sign up for this if you have money to throw away. It is very high pressure sales although they play soothing music in the lobby.
I had a great experience at PA Hypnosis Center. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions on the phone, and invited me in for a free consultation. The consultation was a great experience in and of itself, they didn't judge me for being overweight, in fact they explained how difficult it can be to change your thought process when it comes to food and explained how they could do that with hypnosis. They did tell me upfront what they do is different from any other hypnosis center, but that's why they've had so much success. After the consultation I purchased a weight loss program. I am half way through my program and I have already lost 30 pounds. Before this I would binge eat and wouldn't be able to resist sweets and comfort foods. I feel so much more in control. The sessions are really relaxing and I always look forward to my next session because each time I feel like I get more out of it. I recommend pa hypnosis to anyone wanting to be hypnotized!
Dan Vitchoff helped me lose 60 pounds. I usually don't write reviews especially not about something health related and personal like hypnosis but my results were so dramatic I felt compelled to write a review. Dan Vitchoff managed to make me not want any junk food or fast food. Its really surprising. My wife is thrilled. I sleep better, I feel better, my sleep apnea has improved. I just feel really good.
The PA Hypnosis Center went above and beyond to help me increase my pistol scores. Being a competitive pistol shooter demands extreme mental focus and concentration. The PA Hypnosis Center was able help improve my focus and concentration and as a result my scores increased by 5%. Any body in competitive shooting looking for an edge should pay a visit to the PA Hypnosis Center.
PA Hypnosis Center works wonders... My Fiance purchased this for me as a Birthday Present... I was a little skeptical... 60 pounds lighter I am a true believer and fan... I would recommend this to anyone who has struggled in the past... Thias WORKS!!!
