Harmony Hypnosis is a sole-proprietorship founded in 2008 in Bastrop, Texas. After the wildfires of Labor Day 2011, the business was relocated to Austin, Texas. Harmony Hypnosis focuses on helping people with strong minds quit smoking and overcome stage fright.

Hypnosis is not what you’ve seen on television. It is not mind-control, except in the sense that clients learn to control their own minds. It is instead a method for using suggestion and trance states to influence the unconscious mind; I define it as the art of getting real results from unconscious events.
