    Rekha hypnotized me to stop picking at my skin. My skin is not completely healed yet but it is looking great in just a matter of a few weeks. And the obsessive compulsion to pick is barely there anymore and keeps getting weaker by the day. Rekha didn't just work with solely on skin picking but on all my OCD behaviors and all my anxiety in general because her philosophy is to treat the person as a whole because you can not just treat one symptom and not the entire condition. Like I already stated my picking has not completely stopped yet but is much better and easier to deal with. My skin is slowly healing and looking better. I have had OCD my entire life since chilhood and probably always will but in just a matter of a few weeks I have noticed an EXTREME improvement in my overall anxiety and stress levels since working with Rekha. I know that I never would have been able to do it alone without Rekha' s help. I absolutely LOVE going and seeing her every week. I always feel so EXTREMELY RELAXED after one of our sessions. We have just started new sessions on my next issue which is weight loss. I can not wait until my skin is completely clear and I start to see weight loss results. Just in time for bikini session.

    Excellent Hypnotherapy Service
    A few months back, I called Blossom Hypnosis to help me lose weight. Rekha worked with me via Skype for eight weeks. She was diligent, sincere and experienced in using the hypnosis technique. She provided me with additional scripts to listen to help me further. Her voice is calming and soothing in getting hypnotized fast. She did follow-up calls to ask how I was doing. I strongly recommend Blossom Hypnosis to anyone who needs help with various mental or physical issues.
    Rekha S. Jun 28, 2017

    Hypnosis for Cronic Pain
    I began hypnosis therapy at Blossom Hypnosis with the hope of easing my neck pain. I had never tried hypnosis, but had gone through several other therapies with no positive outcomes. I was a bit skeptical at first and did not know what to expect, but with Rekhas encouragement I continued to do the readings and self hypnosis exercises. I learned to relax and allowed the hypnosis do its work. Hypnosis therapy did indeed help my pain to become manageable. Now, with the knowledge Rekha has given me, the pain is hardly noticeable! I would recommend Blossom Hypnosis for anyone dealing with chronic pain!
    Rekha S. Jun 28, 2017

    Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for writing the review for me. I am so glad that you have learned to manage your pain with all the techniques I gave you. Keep listening to the audios for pain and Tinnitus to gain more benefits. I enjoyed working with you and I wish you success in everything you do. Wish you a pain free life. Rekha

    Immediate and definite results.
    I was dealing with a broken heart... I had found out that my husband was involved with another woman and I wasn't able to sleep well and I was devastated for weeks before I turned to Blossom Hypnosis. After the first session I was able to sleep through the night. After the second session I was able to focus and think straight again. My son also needed a few sessions and she was able to help us both deal with this sad situation. She helped me put my heartbreak aside and built up my self esteem, and she did the same for my son. I got immediate and helpful results from the hypnosis, and straight to the heart advice and counseling before and after the hypnosis session. She truly cares about everyone whose life she touches.
    Rekha S. Jun 28, 2017

    Hi Teresa, Thank you so much for writing the review for me. I am glad you feel benefitted from my help. Hope you and your son are doing well now. It was a pleasure working with you and I wish you tremendous success in all your personal and professional ventures. Rekha

    Hypnosis for weight loss works
    This was my first time trying hypnosis for weight loss and Rekha Shrivastava of Blossom Hypnosis put me at ease at my first visit. With her help, I was able to get motivated and stay focused on my weight loss goal.
    Rekha S. Jun 28, 2017

    A most excellent hypnotherapist
    Rekha is very personable. She is experienced and professional. As soon as I met her I knew I would be able to trust her. I am a physician so that was very important to me. Rekha expressed a great deal of compassion and empathy. She has excellent insight. Rekha is thorough and took an excellent and complete comprehensive history. I knew that she was able to understand my situation. Rekha established a schedule and goals for us in an outline form. It was very organized and concise. She came up with an excellent plan and she was very prompt and focused on it adhering to our goals. I really enjoyed the way she practiced the hypnosis therapy. It was obvious that she was extremely capable and also that she enjoyed her work. Rekha has an excellent attitude. I looked forward to each session. I usually would go onto very deep hypnotic states. I always felt that I was in total control. Rekha was like a guide to help facilitate and lead me into the deep states. I made excellent progress with Rekha's guidance. Rekha is well educated. She shared much of her knowledge through explanation and printed handouts. I found the handouts quite reinforcing and educational. Rekha also periodically would email me short hypnosis practice sessions. These were deepening exercises. I also found these insightful and also reinforcing. I was very pleased with my outcome. I still use many of the techniques today because I found that Rekha had explained them so well and I found them highly useful. I was very sensitive to my own criticism in the past. I believe this is the area where I made the greatest growth. Now I am a stronger person and I love and value myself even more. I am content, satisfied, and fulfilled.
