One hour all it takes to quit
"QUIT smoking in 60 minutes guaranteed" - that's a bold statement however new business owner Donna Nevin stands by her alternate methods.
"My sessions work in 95.6% of all patients," she said, offering free follow up treatments until the habit is quit.
Using a mixture of hypnotherapy and neural linguistic programming the session involves a non-invasive and pill-free option to tackling a hard-to-beat habit.
All that is needed for a successful treatment is a real want to change and a willingness to follow Donna's instructions.
"I give my clients tips on healthy living for a continued improvement in their lifestyle. It's a win-win situation."
Along with offering a lifetime treatment Donna has made her services half price until the end of January for the New Year's resolution makers.
The service normally costs $500 for one session but it is only $250 for the month of January.
"Five hundred dollars is as much as a heavy smoker would spend on cigarettes in a month, so of course you will end up saving," Donna said.
The now reformed smoker who started at the age of 12 said the 60 minutes to quit method changed her life. Previously diagnosed with emphysema she was unable to pursue her passion for singing.
However after the treatment and with her improved lung capacity she now leads an active lifestyle singing professionally and swimming regularly.
"It worked for me and I know it will work on others," she said.
The sessions are run all over the Downs with sessions in a Killarney based clinic at the OH SO Natural consultation room. Donna is also available to make home visits to those who can't travel.
Donna said the method also helped improve other ailments including obesity, malnutrition, depression, arthritis, diabetes, infertility and anaemia.
"Smoking is a habit not an addiction, change can be made. You just have to want it and follow through."
