"As a student, I was ready, and then my teacher appeared, Melanie Mamakos. Melanie's knowledge and execution of Braucherei (Pow Wow) is nothing short of astounding. She has helped me tremendously in my personal life as well as in my practice to assist others. As a certified hypnotherapist, I found the use of Braucherei in my sessions with clients an amazing adjunct to helping people with various issues. It was an honor for me to have Melanie as a mentor, her energy and intuitive insight is very comforting and non-intrusive - which is an important approach to someone with her gifts.  You can truly feel that her energy is coming from a place of love and understanding pouring over you to help. Many people have amazing talents and abilities but are unable to teach it effectively to others, Melanie is a great teacher with patience and a wealth of information. I can honestly say that I am a better person having met her and highly recommend  her and her services to anyone seeking positive change in their life or therapy practice. Thank you Melanie. Love and Light!"

"The imagery of walking on the smooth stones, with the moss growing between them...the dappled light, the lovely weather and the boulder in the sun, was probably the nicest image I've had in my head for months... I felt very at peace. I want to thank you for that immensely."

"Melanie Mamakos has helped me in immeasurable ways over the last several years. I was fortunate to find her in a group setting and I knew that seeing her privately would help me even more.

Her demeanor puts me immediately at ease so I can get to the root of the problem or issue I want to work through at the time. I have worked through various issues with her and have seen significant improvements throughout my life. She has been so supportive and constantly reminds me (which I sometimes need!) that I can accomplish anything I desire.  I can handle things better, focusing on bringing into my life all that I want, instead of what I don't want. And once I made some of the positive changes, I needed or wanted, she continued to give me great suggestions on how to solidify all that was and is going right in my life. With a hypnotherapist, I wanted to make sure her methodologies, viewpoints, and suggestive words would be in alignment with my way of thinking and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! During the hypnosis part of the session, her soothing voice allows me to go deeper and deeper each time. The words she uses are powerful and I am grateful they help set my subconscious and conscious mind in the best way possible. For anyone who may want to try hypnotherapy for the first time, or if you've tried it in the past and want to experience it with someone new, I highly suggest making an appointment with Melanie... It can change your life!"
