Eric Van Fossen has been a family practice Physician Assistant for over twenty-five years. In realizing that western medicine sometimes only alleviates problems and disregards helping the client truly change, he began searching for additional tools that would facilitate change. The first step on this path was to become a Licensed Massage Therapist 18 years ago.

He also holds a additional certifications in Hypnosis for Pain Management, Tinnitus,and PTSD. He is a certified NLP Master Practitioner. In combining his years of experience in addressing  people’s  health concerns with the power of hypnosis,  a very powerful tool for change and wellness emerges.

Mr. Van Fossen is a certified stress management specialist thru the From Stressed to Best™ system. This unique system helps people to understand their personality type and therefore their hardwired preferences for interacting with the world.   Clients learn what causes them to become STRESSED, to recognize that they are operating in their STRESSED mode and how to then quickly return to their BEST mode of operating. Once this is understood, then all interactions with others can become more efficient and productive.


Prior to becoming a Physician Assistant Mr. Van Fossen served in the US Navy operating the nuclear power plant on a submarine. After Physician Assistant school he joined the Army National Guard/Reserves achieving the rank of Captain.   After the events of 9/11, he deployed to Afghanistan with a Special Operations Unit.
