Ken Guzzo founded the Bay Area Non-Smoking Center, in 2006, and since then has helped over 4,000 people become completely smoke-free in a single session treatment, with no drugs, no withdrawal, and a lifetime guarantee.  His break-through process combines the most advanced hypnosis techniques with a cutting edge neurological process to clear the cravings from the mind and body.

The Hypnotic Lap-Band Weight Release program was developed over many years and finally launched in 2010.  Ken borrowed ideas from many leading programs in the weight-loss field, and integrated them with hypnotic and neurological techniques to create balanced and sustainable approach to weight wellness.  The process makes it easy for the client to achieve and maintain their bodies at their optimal size and shape.

Once people free themselves from their relentless cravings for tobacco or food, Ken Guzzo finds that many are eager to consciously address the rest of their lives, and then the Miruspoint Prime-Potential process is a perfect fit.

(AAH on facebook)  This school not only teaches hypnosis, but the technologies, best practices, and business models, to ensure that certified graduates are able to earn hundreds of dollars per hour, while improving the quality of peoples' lives.

  • Ken is an amazing talented individual. I was referred to him from my niece that had quit smoking back in April and it was working extremely well for her. I decided to make an appt in August and I am happy to say that I have been smoke free since then!!!! It was one of the best decisions that I have made in my life! I am no longer a slave to a tobacco stick! I do admit I've had urges! However, being hypnotized truly works!!! You gotta want to stop smoking and I definitely wanted to!! I had been smoking for 20+ years, Thank you Ken for helping me feel better!! (And smell better! Nothing is more disgusting then smoke filled clothes and hair)

  • The day I walked into your office I was smoking about 20 cigarettes a day!

    From the moment I exited the hypnosis room I knew something was different. What was different? I no longer felt like picking up a cigarette and lighting it! The need to smoke it was GONE! Completely GONE for good! It was as though I never smoked! Standing in the reception area in your office I smiled at the ever growing mountain of discarded packs of no longer required smokes!

    It's been a year and a half and I have never even thought of smoking and I know that this is permanent!

    Thank you Ken for all the years of my life you have given me back!

    If you are reading this review and really are ready to  stop smoking please do your self a favor and make an appointment ASAP!  THIS REALLY DOES WORK!

  • Ken is an outstanding hypnotist. He is deeply concerned for his client's wellbeing and makes it his one and only goal to have them free of whatever challenge they came in to clear. Hypnosis is so relaxing and not scary at all. Book your session with Ken ASAP you deserve to let go of any and all blocks in your life! He helped me to release blocks around money and success and also taught me how to hypnotize others in his certification course.
