People who know Matan professionally & personally would agree that his name is synonymous with dedication, playfulness, creativity, compassion and honesty. Over the past 20 years and in over 20,000 sessions, Matan has employed and taught many modalities including hypnosis, therapeutic movement, yoga, pilates, meditation, breath, qigong, and wellness & transformation coaching.
Hypnosis utilizes a state of consciousness called 'trance’ which you experience daily but may not be able to identify. Probably, most of your favorite activities include this state (watching TV, exercising, being in nature, reading, sex & meditation, etc). In trance, our unconscious mind is open and able to accept new suggestions/ beliefs that have the potential to become part of our operating system/ belief system. It can also give us resources that are not always available for us in our default state of consciousness. With hypnosis our behavior can change to support these new beliefs.
People usually describe their experience with hypnotherapy as finding inner freedom & empowering. The result is not just new awareness, it’s the ability to MOVE PAST long term issues and recurring problems; having a mind that supports us, so we can experience more of what we want in life.
Our philosophy is BALANCED MOVEMENT. We integrate different somatic (body & mind) modalities with the intention to improve our biomechanical function. The term we use to describe our philosophy is ‘AGILE BODY’ which we get through working on different movement skills: awareness of body & space, balance, breath, strength, mobility, flexibility, & relaxation. The result is that the loads in our body are balanced efficiently between joints who communicate with each other and work together, INTEGRATION.
Our clientele ranges from ages 12 to 80, we work with young athletes to heal injuries and to improve movement skills. And with a more mature population, what we call ‘Movement Longevity,’ where we provide the answer to the question: HOW can I maximize my mobility & fitness in my 80's?

Through the sessions, Matan and I figured out how to get away from one behavior that I resented. All it took from me was an intention and a desire to be honest. I felt in control at all times and Matan guided me through each session with respect and attention. Months after the sessions, I am still not drinking and I still know and understand why.
Doing hypnotherapy with Matan changed my life! I was referred to him by my therapist to get past a few deep fears I had based on past traumatic events. I truly thought I would would have to live in fear forever and I didn't see a way out. After one session with Matan I felt free of fear, like my life could begin. He cleared that energy and made space for me to live the live I've dreamed of. It was the best investment in myself and I cannot recommend it enough! I feel like I am finally living in my truth without shame and it feels amazing. Thank you Matan!
Matan has helped me in so many ways over the years. The aches and pains in life were well addressed by him in his physical attention to my compromised body. Later he really aided me to quit smoking with hypnosis. Its been about a full year not a single puff. I have referred many friends and family, all had very positive experiences. I would highly recommend Matan!!
