New Health Visions LLC

Hypnosis… also referred to as hypnotherapy or self-hypnosis, is a totally safe, yet powerful tool that can help you gain control over unwanted behaviors, habits, emotions and thoughts. In essence, therapeutic hypnosis is a relaxed, natural, yet focused, state of mind that allows you to become mentally open to receiving positive suggestions and images. Hypnosis is so natural that you routinely enter and exit hypnotic trances several times a day, such as while driving or while watching TV! While working with a hypnotherapist, you are conscious, aware and in control at all times. - See more at www.newhealthvisions.com

Triquestrian LLC:  Growing and Learning with Horses

Triquestrian’s mission is to provide an opportunity for growth and learning through the power of horses to the community. We believe horses have the ability to help us experience and explore life from a unique perspective creating opportunities for growing, learning, and healing.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy provides an experiential learning opportunity for clients. Because of its’ experiential nature, it allows a different level of exploration and integration of mind, body, and spirit that is oftentimes difficult to reach within traditional treatment settings. This strengths-based perspective works with individuals to unlock their own solutions building on the resources each individual has in themselves, their lives, their support systems, and their community.

Come, join us and experience the power of the herd!
