Junk Food Terminations:
"I ate ice cream every night at 9:00, like clockwork. Since my session with Sanna, I have not touched ice cream in a year and a half. I don't miss it either. Don't want it. Unbelievable! Ice cream is a food I overindulged to the point of a sugar stupor. I did not substitute anything else either. Fascinating, just fascinating." S. M., Moon Township.
Craving Buster Session: "Pepsi was killing me! I gained weight, had mood swings and my blood sugar was getting worse. Using Sanna's approach, I am done with it, tossed it, have not had one soda since 2007." Rachel D., Pittsburgh
Ho-Ho's Every Day: "Sanna was so kind and welcoming. I admit I was embarrassed to bring Ho-Ho's to my session. I used to eat 6 packages every single day! Now I know why - stress from years ago! That was 8 years ago - haven't touched one since. Don't need them." S. M.., Pittsburgh
Family Table Trauma Constellations
"I sat there stunned - I was still acting this anger out as an adult! When my older brother died (I was two; he was three), I saw that whenever I ate more food my Mom would smile and not feel sad. So I had made this decision at the age of two (not in a cognitive way). I have never articulated this: I would eat for my brother and me, and to make Mom happy so she would not grieve. This was unbelievably transformative." Sue D., Monroeville, PA
“I just wanted to acknowledge your work with me. You put me in the position to accept my current situation. I've used a lot of what came up in our work together and I look at those sessions as important touch points on my journey. I'm often talking to Thin Higher Tom and he's coming out more often without fear. This food plan feels like I'll really stick to it and I've never had that confidence before. In reality, I had made a lot of volume changes to my diet but I was still eating too much meat and fat I think. By getting in all of that fiber first I really am full so I do not feel deprived. Weight loss is probably the most complex challenge I've ever faced. It truly is an authentic journey for each of us and anyone path that works for some may not work for others. T. V., Pgh
"I never realized how difficult it was to have a meal with my parents when I was little but it was all right there. They fought and I ate. They bickered and I ate. They drank and I ate. Today I still eat! It made sense. I can stop now" Erin S., Cleveland.
"I was addicted to Koolaid and Twinkies. UGH! Now I am freeeeeee! LOVE YOUR WORK. It's so empowering." Denise, Pgh, PA
"As soon as I sat down at the table, Sanna nailed it when she told me to say, "I stuff my anger with food." I saw how the family table patterned my eating habits when I was a child. Sanna is right on it." Sue, Columbus, OHb
Private Sessions: "I went to see Dr. B. (PCP) for my yearly checkup this week and she was thrilled with the progress that I’d made. My glucose level is NORMAL. My T values are good. My cholesterol is where it should be and my blood pressure was at an all-time low. She said “You never gave up” trying to lose the weight and now you have." She said I was working my way off of all of my meds. Best check up I’ve ever had!" MAS, Pittsburgh
Previous Stress Eater: "I stopped eating chocolate altogether. I just don't need it, especially when I realized why I was eating so much and thought I loved it. I feel better too!" Liz P., Pittsburgh, PSusan M. Oakmont, PA
DIETS DON'T WORK! "Sanna helped me learn how to eat. Losing weight became secondary and easy. This way kept me on track and confident. You get full-service support with Sanna. Justno other way!" Ron D., Pittsburgh
Eating all Night was Killing Me: "Sanna and I mapped out my habits and stress. I was shocked. She revealed all the patterns and showed me what was happening. She saw it immediately and then, we went to work. I was ready to change my life. I was in a lot of physical and emotional pain. It was up to me and I dove in and am in the process of making some powerful changes." Tom V., Washington, D.C. (Skype)
Managing Food Choices: "Sanna! Meeting with Sanna and her constant inspirational emails were a huge part of my success. I would print out her daily emails and put them on the fridge or in my journal. Sanna helped me realize that being accountable to me was the key to the success of my journey. Sanna continues to send my motivational emails which are so important and makes me feel that she really cares about me and my continued success. Thanks, Sanna! You are Amazing!" M.A.C. Cannonsburg.
Food Management: "Thanks for this year! For the first time in my life, I can say I've met the perennial goal of losing what was weighing me down. I am the only one who can change my life. What you have done, Sanna radically changed the way I respond to my life. All hail to you!" T.C., New Hampshire.
Mentally Stagnant: "I plateaued for three days. After one session with you, Sanna, I started dropping again. THANK YOU! You also have a beautiful way with words." J. S. Pgh, PA
"My little inner child believed that eating cookies would keep my tears away." S.L.K., Pittsburgh.
Party Mind Power Class
"When I walked into the class, I could smell and taste the cookies sitting on the tray. I wanted to eat those cookies. After EFT, I couldn't smell the cookies and no longer had any desire to eat them. I have been around cookies and pie all weekend and haven't had any interest in eating them. It's amazing! I am FREE!"
"I'd also say the session taught me some simple, useful techniques that will help me to manage myself throughout the holidays. I'm so glad that I came. There definitely has been a shift. The next morning I woke up dreaming about the EFT session."
"Yesterday I baked cookies and I wasn't tempted to eat any. So, I tried one just to see what would happen and it didn't taste good. I didn't want it and threw it out."
"The same thing happened today. We had a Thanksgiving dinner at church. I took a bite of pumpkin pie, just to see. Again, I didn't want it and threw it away. Amazing! I am cured of that sweet craving. This will have such a huge impact on me. I feel so much more confident that I can succeed now. Thank you so very much!" M.J. Pgh
HypnoDining: The Eating Course
“I have actually gone done a size. THANKS!" Sandy Grimes, Pgh (with permission)
"I want to thank you for your positive influence, support & education you are providing in my new life. I am so grateful that I met you & am so glad you are such an important part of my life." Beth, Pgh
"Your kind words are the encouragement I needed. Just so you know, even though I fall back into my old routine of how I eat more often than I like, your words are always there pulling me back to eat to live and enjoy the experience! I say a little prayer of thanks for you each time this happens! "Ilena, Pittsburgh, PA
Private Session: “Ah . . . I get it! I am feeling better and much more accepting. We had a family dinner today which was very nice - and best of all, no overeating! You've really helped me see things more clearly and have gotten me interested in exploring the areas of hypnosis, power affirmations, and EFT. I'm starting to think differently! Again, many thanks for opening up my mind. You're right - I can heal this! “ J. M. Neil, Pittsburgh
"After listening to Sanna’s talk (at Baldwin Women's Chamber Meeting) on HypnoDining, I decided to experience a session. I am not sure why I decided to do it since it would seem that eating is the most natural thing a person does and there is an abundance of information on healthy eating everywhere!
"But I soon learned that I was completely unaware of how I was eating—too fast and too much, why I was eating, and what I was eating!"
"Sanna taught me to be conscious of my relationship with food. She taught me to consciously connect with the what, when, why, and how of eating. A little time, attention, and intention has made a world of difference in how I interact with food. Sanna’s style is highly encouraging and reflective. Sanna specializes is the art of nourishing the body, mind, and spirit. She made a difference for me." Dottie Coll, Pittsburgh, PA (with permission)
