Ready to be your best you?

Schedule a complimentary consultation

During your initial visit, you'll learn more about Hypnosis, Reiki and our approach to helping you achieve your goals. We’ll put you at ease in a comfortable environment and invite you to complete a brief questionnaire to tell us more about what you hope to accomplish. The consultation will generally run for 30 minutes and we will make recommendations tailored to your needs.

There is no obligation and should you choose to proceed, many clients find that change may happen quickly and is sustained as you establish a new routine of self-coaching and mindfulness. While your experience may be different each time, the more you practice hypnosis the more reinforcement and motivation you will find. You should expect to feel confidence in your practitioner so that you may just relax, follow their voice and enjoy the experience.

Empowered Approach


    Empowered Hypnosis Wellness Centers is a leading source for Hypnosis and Reiki Therapies. We have been committed to providing leading-edge healing to thousands of clients.

  • SAFE

    Hypnosis and Reiki are both natural and safe – you are always aware of what is going on. You remain in complete control during the entire session and will not do anything that is uncomfortable to you.


    The subconscious mind is often referred to as your right brain, where lays our dreams, intuition, imagination, long term memory, belief system and emotions. When in the state of hypnosis, the critical factor of the conscious mind is pushed to the side so the subconscious mind becomes more accessible and open to suggestions.


    Hypnosis has been an accepted therapeutic intervention by the American Medical Association since 1952 and the American Psychological Association. In addition, the National Institute of Health has recommended hypnotherapy as a treatment for pain since 1995.


    Set yourself free from feelings such as fear, frustration, anger, resentment and guilt. Release the blocks and negative patterns that have been holding you back. Feel lighter and more at peace by letting go of painful thoughts and feelings.

Empowered Stories

We've helped thousands of people hit their reset buttons to enhance their health, achievement,
personal interactions and everyday fulfillment. The results are so significant that many of our
clients return to work toward breakthroughs in other areas of their lives.

I had been given a gift of One Hypnosis session for smoking cessation at Empowered Hypnosis. With my appointment scheduled and almost no resolve to actually quit smoking, I made my way to their offices and the first thing I noticed was the calmness, the tranquility. Selena first explained what we could expect and then we talked about my background, motivation and desire. After she felt she had an understanding of me we began. Starting with relaxation she walked (or more accurately, talked) me through the stages into a deep trance. I was so relaxed. When Selena had me 'wake up' (by smiling) I was a non-smoker. No, really I no longer smoked! I have since seen another hypnotist or two for other matters but none compare to Selena. And it is worth noting that I am writing this review almost 1 year after that visit. Selena, I don't know if you remember me, but I remember you and you changed my life. Thank you.


I've been here twice in the past and each time I found it was very helpful...once you get in the chair and get in the zone your mind is in a completely different place. I was feeling particularly anxious about an audition and once I saw Selena she helped me put all those anxious thoughts out of my mind and I was ready to focus on my audition. I would definitely recommend anyone to go visit Selena especially if you need to work on your positivity outlook.


I have known and collaborated with Selena for a number of years now and I can't say enough good things about her and her highly skilled team at Empowered Hypnosis. If you have been considering hypnosis but are unsure if it's right for you, or if you have tried hypnosis before and are looking for a lasting positive change, then this is the place for you!


If you are struggling to break free of certain habits or negative thoughts I would highly recommend Empowered Hypnosis. Selena is so gracious and accommodating, as well as Caterina! I've been to a couple of different hypnotists in the past and no one compares to Caterina. She is absolutely amazing. She genuinely cares, listens, and will help you in any way she possibly can! It's so comforting and refreshing to speak to someone with such an honest and caring soul.


I've gone to Caterina for years for a number of reasons ranging from dealing with stressful life events to confidence building. Her sessions are amazing and she has done a stellar job at guiding me through the never-ending journey of self-discovery. Without her help, I wouldn't have been confident enough to overcome one of my biggest fears, speaking in public.She has been so helpful that I've also taken my son to her to help with overcoming his fear of swimming in deep water. This about-face was immediate and he jumped into the deep end voluntarily weeks after the session. I highly recommend Empowered Hypnosis and especially Caterina.


Selena is absolutely amazing. I was always skeptical about this kind of therapy until I had my first session with her. She has a warm personality with concern for her clients and I was easily able to fall into a trance by the sound of her voice. Just after my first set of weekly sessions I felt so empowered and noticed changes in my lifestyle habits going back to where they should be. It is now second nature to me to make smarter choices. I am a hundred times happier and proud of myself than I was when I first stepped into the Lexington office.


This team is the one to try if you're thinking about hypnosis or looking for a new practitioner! They are lovely to work with, easy to schedule with and very accommodating...Depending on how hard the subject is, you may need more than one session, but I feel safe to say based on my experience that you'll be thrilled with the results. I can confine my sweets to my cheat days. I don't need sugar for comfort anymore. It's a beautiful thing. Start your journey today!


I came in to Empowered Hypnosis Center for the Gastric Band Hypnosis Program and I have already lost 5 lbs. and it's only been a week! I really wanted to get control of my food intake and eliminate junk food and just couldn't do it on my own. I chose the center because many friends have gone there and was raving about the place so I had to check it out for myself and I am so happy I did. As soon as I walked in I knew I chose the right place because the staff was so warm and friendly...the type of person that would benefit from the Hypnosis Gastric Band Program are people that are serious about losing weight because this program works! If you are on the fence, get off and make an appointment now. You will lose weight quickly and gain your self-confidence back too:!


Selena is really wonderful. She greeted me right at my scheduled appointment time and discussed what I felt I needed help with. We even wound up walking out together and taking the train downtown, both headed in the same direction. In speaking to her outside of the office, I learned even more about what drew her to hypnosis and how it really can be beneficial...if nothing else, it's an hour in a quiet room, comfortable and hearing about how great you are/can be. Win/win.


I went to Caterina for a Reiki session for both physical and mental stress concerns. She was very calming and professional; the session helped me to clear my noisy mind. She taught me some strategies to relax both my body and mind and I plan to use them in the future whenever I might feel overwhelmed. I had a great experience here and encourage anyone to make time for some self-care regularly. Thanks Caterina!!

Will I give away any secrets while in the state of Hypnosis? +

No. Hypnosis is not a truth serum and during your session your Hypnotist will be the only one speaking during your session.

How does it feel to be in state of Hypnosis? +

You are in a light meditative, daydream state while focusing on what’s important to you.

Who can be hypnotized? +

95% of the population can be hypnotized if they are willing. If one suffers from epilepsy, psychosis, or schizophrenia, down syndrome or brain damage he/she should not be hypnotized.

Do I need a doctor’s referral? +

Hypnotists cannot and do not diagnose or treat disease. For example, depression is considered a disease, so a Hypnotist does not treat depression. However, your doctor gives you a referral or hypnosis sessions to help you with the underlying stress that may be resulting from depression.

How do I get a doctors referral? +

A standardized form can be emailed, mailed or faxed to you or directly to your doctor for signature.

Can sessions be done by telephone? +

Absolutely. As a matter of fact, some clients prefer hypnosis by phone. The price is the same as an in-office session.

What form of payment do you accept? +

We gladly accept Cash, Personal Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card.

What about Confidentiality? +

Your sessions are private. What you discuss in your session is confidential. Hypnotists are bound by the same laws as other health practitioners.

What if I can’t quiet down my mind? +

Research has shown that we have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. But according to some research, as many as 80 percent of our thoughts are negative.

Hypnosis provides an opportunity for you to take control of your life and empower yourself. With consistent repetition you will achieve the positive results you are seeking.

What is Law of Attraction? +

The Law of Attraction may be defined as attracting to one’s life whatever is given attention, energy and focus to, whether positive or negative. Hypnosis is an effective mechanism geared toward achieving one’s goals.

What is NLP? +

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (programming).

Reiki Frequently Asked Questions

What is Reiki? +

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

Where does Reiki energy come from? +

The true source of Reiki energy is within ourselves. It is subtle and different than electricity and other types of chemical or physical energy. Reiki energy appears to come down from above and to enter the top of the practitioner's head, after which if flows through the body and out the hands. It appears to flow this way because of our perspective.

How is a Reiki treatment given? +

In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table or chair fully clothed, and treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the client's body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the client's needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The entire treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.

What does a Reiki treatment feel like? +

What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies. At the end of the treatment, it is common to feel refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

What can be treated with Reiki? +

Reiki has had a positive effect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes head or stomach aches, colds, flu, tension and anxiety. Stress reduction with some improvement in one's physical and psychological condition are what most experience.

Does one have to stop seeing a regular doctor or psychologist in order to receive a Reiki treatment? +

No. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If one has a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that he or she see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including medication and psychological care.
