Nanaimo Hypnotherapy Center - Ronald E. Thompson

It was during Ron's initial nine month stay in the hospital that he had a near death experience which altered his view of life. While he was recuperating in the hospital he met many people in much worse situations than himself that were dealing with severe emotional and mental problems additional to the obvious physical problems which brought them to hospital in the first place. Ron discovered that although hospitals can help you with the physical body they cannot repair what is wrong within a person's mind. This was the start of his journey into Hypnotherapy.more info
