Who is Michelle?

Thank you for stopping by Tower Hypnosis!

If you’ve clicked on this About page, you must be wondering what is Tower Hypnosis and who is behind it all? Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Michelle Cronk and, like everyone, I am a work-in-progress who has embraced several huge transformations during this lifetime. There’s nothing I enjoy more than supporting others through similar experiences, sharing what I’ve learned in the hopes of helping you make the deep, gentle, quick changes you’ve been dreaming of.

Through Tower Hypnosis, I teach how to dismantle undesirable habits and create new, improved practices using self-hypnosis techniques. These tools can be utilized for a lifetime of change. Any change you desire, whenever you are ready.

Due to the pandemic, I find myself temporarily living in a small Central New York town after 40 years in New York City. New York will always be home but digging in the dirt, growing a few flowers and vegetables while watching doves nesting on the garage has been very healing. My next adventure (coming soon!) will combine the best of city and country living.

Again, thank you for stopping by. If you have questions, please don’t wait. Reach out and let’s see what we can do.

Peace & Love,

University of Life

Weight Management: There was a time when I weighed over 300 pounds. You read that right, over 300 pounds. It took 15 very long years to lose 160 pounds. Fifteen years of tears, frustration and self-loathing. There’s no need for anyone else to go through all that! During those years, I studied, researched and experimented until I found tools that actually helped me reach my health goals. How I wish hypnosis had been in my arsenal back then! Hypnosis, plus all the health, wellness and nutritional info I learned would have knocked those 15 years down drastically.

Covid Recovery: And then there’s Covid, a life-changing experience for every human on the planet. Every one of us has a Covid story. Mine began at the very beginning of the pandemic in New York City, aka ‘ground zero.’ Four weeks of Covid turned into 24 months of Long Covid. It was not pretty.

Because nothing was known about the disease, I quickly turned to my holistic health background for help. Using hypnosis and good nutrition as a foundation, I was able to lessen and cope with the painful symptoms. Once the worst was over, I gathered together a protocol that has greatly increased my taste and smell.

By the spring of 2022, two years after having Covid, most of the symptoms ended. I felt a lot better but was still not satisfied with my energy levels and cognitive function. The nausea, vomiting, migraines and body pain were mostly over but my brain just wasn’t working well and I was exhausted most of the time. The search for holistic answers began once again. Increasing my self-hypnosis practices and experimenting with food and lifestyle changes has made all the difference. It’s a relief to say it’s working! My energy levels are higher now than before getting sick and my brain rarely gets stuck anymore. I am grateful every day.

Tower Hypnosis offers wonderful tools for change but they are not meant to replace professional medical care. If you are currently being treated by a healthcare professional, a referral for hypnosis is required. Tower Hypnosis is happy to discuss this with you and/or your practitioner.
