Shed Those Extra Pounds

Hypnosis is very successful in helping overweight people change their eating habits on a daily basis. You don't have to starve yourself, but you'll find that food won't always be on your mind. If you're tired of the diet merry-go-round, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised with this proven approach to weight loss.

Kick the Habit

Acadiana Hypnosis offers a comprehensive program designed to end the cravings for cigarettes. This private, one-on-one session takes place in a comfortable atmosphere and takes about an hour. After the session, you are given a CD that will reinforce your new attitude toward cigarettes. We hear from people every week that have quit for good!

Tackle the Stress Monster

No one can eliminate stress entirely, but Acadiana Hypnosis offers a calm and relaxed way to deal with it. You'll experience immediate results. It's almost like a full body massage from the inside out, yet no one ever touches you. We'll also give you a CD so you can recapture these feelings anytime you wish!

Hypnotism: Fact vs Myth

Hypnosis is not sleep, but similar to daydreaming, in a deeply relaxed state.

You cannot be hypnotized against your will, and no one can make you do anything you don't want to do.

When you are hypnotized, you are in full control at all times.
In fact, you can hear the hypnotist's voice as well as other sounds during the entire session.

You will not reveal intimate secrets while hypnotized.

You remember everything.

A few minutes of hypnosis is equal to a few hours of sleep. It feels great!

Rob Rue began his hypnosis studies in Las Vegas in June of 2000. He was fortunate to be educated by renowned hypnotist Jerry Valley as well as the man considered to be the dean of American hypnotists, Ormond McGill. His early studies taught him the techniques used in stage hypnosis shows, and how to use hypnosis to entertain.

A short time later, Rob furthered his studies near Boston, MA when he enrolled in a course in Hypnotherapy at Valley Hypnosis. He learned the latest techniques and methods to use hypnosis, not as entertainment, but as a therapeutic tool to help clients tap into the power of their subconscious to achieve positive, life-changing goals.

In 2001, Rob began his practice in hypnotherapy as Acadiana Hypnosis in Lafayette, Louisiana. Like any new business, success came slowly, but word quickly spread, and today, Acadiana Hypnosis not only serves a large number of Louisiana residents, but also clients from over 30 states and four European Countries.

Clients have been successful using hypnosis to stop smoking, lose weight, and generally improve their lives. They have conquered long-standing fears of flying, public speaking, exam taking and driving over bridges.

Rob continues to study the latest techniques and hypnosis strategies that deliver the absolute best outcomes for his valued clients.

Rue says, “When you come to Acadiana Hypnosis, we make you feel welcome, and treat you like you’re our only client. We want to make certain that after your session, you will know how to use the powerful tool of hypnosis to get the results you want. We know you’ll enjoy your hypnosis session, and we are here to support and encourage you after your visit.”

Today Acadiana Hypnosis is highly recommended by prominent doctors, dentists and health professionals as well as by hundreds of successful clients. Rob adds, “To us, honesty, integrity, positive results and the trust of our clients are our most important products.”
