After 20 years of living in Manatee County, Traci chose St. Petersburg as her new home, due to of the wide variety of entertainment, cultural, night life, and food options. Every imaginable desire or need was now less than a 15-minute drive away. “St. Pete is booming and welcomes new entrepreneurs with new ideas,” said Kanaan.
The idea of a Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy center that provides private sessions and group classes came to Kanaan in 2014 when she began thoroughly studying hypnosis. In January of 2015, Kanaan was hit with the “double whammy” of life challenges, separating from her husband of 17 years, while taking care of her mother with rampant diabetes and dementia. Kanaan continued her studies in Hypnosis when she could, but the majority of her time was spent caring for her mother or responding to the whims of divorce attorneys.
After 13 years on the road as a nationally touring comedian, 9 years of taking care of her mother, and 2 years of divorce…Traci Kanaan found herself beat down, stressed out, depleted of energy and at the lowest point in her life. She realized she needed to do something different, and fast! Through a friend, she found Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy; a healthy, natural way to heal her damaged spirit. When her divorce finalized in 2016 and her mother passed in 2017, she finished her studies at The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy and opened her hypnosis office downtown St Petersburg. A few years later, Wings Hypnosis, LLC was born.
Traci Kanaan combines her 16 years as a comedian, her 5 years as a Hypnotist, and her passion for art into a dynamic, fun way for her clients to relieve stress and overcome challenges they’ve been battling their whole lives. “Many of our clients come to Wings when they’re at their lowest point and they’ve tried everything else. You’ll find Wings Hypnosis to be a warm, inviting place decorated with happy, colorful and inspiring pieces of artwork,” explained Kanaan. In as little as one session, Kanaan and her team give clients the wings they need; a boost of confidence and empowering tools so they can start repairing their damaged souls and “take flight.”
In addition to her training as a stand up comedian, one of the other things that sets Wings Hypnosis apart from competitors is our specialty of Erotic Hypnosis and Erotic Hypnotherapy. Kanaan is one, out of a handful, of Sexual Freedom Hypnosis Practitioners in the country. She works with sexually adventurous adults (those who engage in swinging, BDSM, fetish, kink, LGBTQ lifestyles) who would like to enhance their sexual experiences, as well as those who wish to experience relief from Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, and Porn Addiction.
