Through the connection to the subconscious, hypnotherapy connects emotionally people with their experiences. All our experiences are associated with emotions. Emotions, in turn, are associated with beliefs that can limit us in some way and that do not allow balance harmony and health in our lives.

In hypnotherapy, we look for the deep causes of illnesses or behaviours, which allows us to deal with several symptoms, such as: 

anxiety, depression, panic, fears, phobias, addictions (food, tobacco, coffee, games, medication, alcohol , etc. ), irritation, impatience, anger, insomnia, physical pain and illness, problems with self-esteem , lack of confidence, obsessions, lack of motivation, difficulty in choosing the direction of life, lack of joy, lack of dedication towards dreams, lack of inner will, etc.

To decide to enter a psychotherapy process is a conscious journey of self-knowledge. The psychotherapy process facilitates achieving goals through identification and removal of obstacles. Sometimes these causes are unconscious or even when they are conscious we might not be able to make the intended change alone.
Therefore, in a context of a trusting therapeutic relationship with a qualified professional, this journey becomes easier and pleasantly surprising because of the lightness and psychological well-being achieved. The way of feeling and reacting to previous situations will then naturally be changed, respecting the client's pace and will. The
therapist, depending on his/her knowledge and techniques, will take into account the various approaches that can best to each specific case.
You can start therapy just to feel better about yourself, to improve a
relationship, to manage in a different way a situation that is causing
suffering in some way or to stop feeling depressive or anxious symptoms that disturb you in some way. So in this process that will be a joint discovery you will find yourself happier and more authentic, being free to make your choices when leaving the initial conditioning.

Each pathology creates its own magnetic field with its positive and negative poles. The positive pole, generated by excess hydrogen ions (H +), tends to acidify and develop viruses and fungi. The negative pole, on the contrary, originated by deficiency of H + and the presence of free radicals, tends towards alkalinity and thus favours the development of bacteria and parasites, re-establishing the neutral pH . The application of a magnetic field of polarity contrary to the biomagnetic field produced by the organism pushes the positive charges of hydrogen ions internally against the negative charges of free radicals. Thus, the foci that were acid or alkaline become neutral, which exterminates the respective microorganisms, which do not exist in a neutral pH environment. 


Duration and Procedure

Each Biomagnetism session lasts about an hour, during which the is patient lying and dressed. The therapist obtains the necessary information for the treatment by observing the relative position of the patient's feet and by taking the patient's pulse. The energetic treatment is done with low intensity magnets. Normally, to obtain conclusive results, you need between three to six regularly spaced sessions during one to three months. 


IMPORTANT! It is not advisable to use PACEMAKER or any METAL VALVE. This therapy is also not advisable if you have had chemotherapy less than 5 years before.

Aesthetic acupuncture is a safe and painless procedure, a non-surgical method to reduce the signs of aging, acne, psoriasis, blemishes. It is a revitalization process to help the body as a whole. The result of the treatment is visible in the first sessions.

There are two aspects to take into account with this treatment. One is the benefits in the "local" and the other is the benefits at the root of the problem. Local treatment addresses the symptoms, while the root treats the underlying causes, such as hormonal imbalance, digestive problems or emotional stress. Both locally and at the root level, treatments are performed in each session to provide the best and longest lasting benefit.

Scar treatment


• Hysterectomy • Cesarean section • Mastectomy • Episiotomy • Hernia repair • Uterine or rectal prolapse • Tearing during delivery 

• Sexual trauma or painful sex

Abdominal surgery scars can create imbalances in the pelvis and spine. They can lead to numbness or pain in the scar or in the surrounding areas. Occasionally, childbirth can cause scarring on the pelvic floor, which can cause pain during menstruation or intercourse. Scar tissue is an obstacle to healing. It blocks the free movement of joy and pleasure in the body. Scar tissue reduces the original length of the tissue and weakens it. It can also affect other parts of the body and organs, creating dysfunction and pain. The remediation of scar tissue alters the scar configuration to resemble the original tissue. It brings more openness and flexibility to the scar area. Scars can be formed from infections, injuries, illness, inflammation, chronic poor posture, endometriosis, radiotherapy, tears during delivery and surgeries (such as caesarean sections, episiotomies, appendectomies, ectopic removal of pregnancy, abortion, cervical biopsies, hysterectomy, removal of the ovarian cyst, removal of the gallbladder, etc.) My name is Júlia Pessis, I am a certified Sexological Bodyworker ™ and Somatic Sexual Educator by the Somatic Sexology Institute of England.

Hair removal (natural method)

Sugaring is the ancient Arab art of removing unwanted hair from the face and body.

Hair is removed from the root and regrowth is softer, thinner and lighter, slowing down with each treatment until hair growth finally stops. The sugar paste is made entirely from natural products and it is applied to the skin and removed by an experienced professional. The skin becomes smooth and hairless. The area to be treated is prepared with a bactericidal lotion to ensure that the highest possible hygiene standards are maintained. As the paste is natural and the treatment is very gentle, any part of the body and face can be treated. Sensitive skin and conditions like eczema and psoriasis can be improved by adding sugar. Hair should be about 1 cm long before treatment (ie, 2 weeks after shaving), creams and oils should not be used on the skin 24 hours before the treatment. Sugaring is a skillful practice and all Helena practitioners are trained and certified to a high standard of excellence.

Only for women.
