1. Testimonials appearing on this site are received via written and email submissions. They are individual experiences, reflecting real life experiences of those who have used our products and/or services in some way or other. However, they are individual results and results do vary. We do not claim that they are typical results that consumers will generally achieve. The testimonials are not necessarily representative of all of those who will use our products and/or services.

2. If accepted into the Smoking Cessation Program with the Lifetime Guarantee, the guarantee is simple: If you ever start smoking again, whether it’s one month, one year or ten years later, just come in for a free follow-up session. This is a guarantee for unlimited follow-up sessions at no charge, with no time limit, for the purpose of smoking cessation only; this is not a money-back guarantee. Since many people with addictions have unique circumstances that may not qualify for this guarantee, please call for details.

Each client will be interviewed and if it is determined that the services provided can be of benefit, Joseph R. Giove will provide services in accordance with his education, training, and experience.

4. The services provided are hypnosis, neurolinguistic programming, biofeedback, thought field therapy, guided visualization and self-hypnosis training. These services are not certified by the state.

The primary purpose of licensing laws for legally defined Healing Arts and Mental Health professionals is to protect public health and safety. Accordingly, hypnotherapists are not issued licenses by the Sate Governmental Agency to engage in their professional services. The services do not include the practice of medicine or psychology or any other certified healing art.
