IMAGINE IF you could...

After not being able to exercise because of a car accident, subsequent hip surgery, painkillers and a “comfort diet”, I found myself up 30lbs, spending more time in bed at rest, but as fortune would have it, planning to get married. I was addicted to sugar, in constant pain, and helpless as to what to do to break the cycle. I heard about Melissa Pas Blake through a friend of mine and decided to give hypnosis and Melissa’s comprehensive plan a chance.

She got me walking slowly with walking sticks, hearing her voice in my head when I wanted to eat unhealthy food not “from the earth” foods. I also took up swimming, followed her diet, and feeling more positive. Not only did I shed 15lbs in one month. I did so by changing my habits for the long term and getting rid of chronic inflammation which in turn enabled me to workout without re-injuring myself. I am halfway to my very achievable goal (which will come), but the important thing is that this program got me out of bed, made me feel like a completely new woman. Melissa’s coaching was invaluable and I am more than grateful that she came into my life when she did.

P.S. I had to alter my wedding dress down two dress sizes.
P.S. We did this all through Zoom.

Megan, 53 – BOSTON, MA

I had achieved so much in my life, great family, successful career and financial security. Despite what looked looked to the outside world as someone living a full life, I suffered from depression, resentment and anger issues, self isolation and general unhappiness. I was stuck. I was using prescription drugs for depression, in addition to counseling, meditation and any other self help tools I could find. 
My life was manageable but not as it should have been. 

I was I introduced to Melissa Pas Blake through a mutual friend and began to discuss the Rapid Transformational Therapy process.I was skeptical at first and resisted the the idea. One day, desperate to try anything, I reached out to Melissa and began the RTT process. That was one year ago. Without question, I attribute the positive improvements in my life to Melissa and her RTT. I would strongly encourage anyone dealing with depression, resentment, control or anger issues to work with Melissa. IT WORKS!

I met with Melissa for my weight issues, everything she spoke about made perfect sense. The session helped me realize and understand, I could change my eating habits and the way I feel about food, especially sugar. I saw myself as a sugar addict. Since my session with Melissa, my choices to be healthy and lean far outweigh my desire for sugar. I feel for the first time ever free from my emotional eating. My mindset towards sugar has automatically, almost instinctively changed. The session with Melissa changed my life. RTT and Melissa are amazing.

I feel for the first time ever, free from my emotional eating. 


Melissa was recommended to me through a friend. I was pleased with how open she was to answering my questions and speaking about her personal experiences with RTT before our session. Even though our session was through Zoom, it was effective and I left feeling light, clear and having full clearity. I woke up the next day so well rested and fresh. The custom recording is so specific and personalized and I have already noticed the difference in how I am thinking about myself after three weeks.

I would recommend Melissa to anyone who wants to begin their journey of understanding, loving and healing themselves. She has taught me the answers and change is possible within us all. I am so happy I had the guidance to help me through this.

She has taught me the answers and change is possible within us all.


Working with Melissa was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had two sessions with her and was able to make more progress overcoming binge eating in our time together than I have in years of working with therapists, taking medication or failing at different diet programs.

She helped me get to the root cause of my behavior quickly and once I realized that my actual issue had nothing at all to do with food, I began to experience a new kind of freedom from the grips of over-eating and binge eating. It has not been a perfect path to recovery, with a few set backs popping up in the first few weeks, but the more I listened to the guided meditations the easier it has become.

I am finally in a place where I feel like my life is moving forward after feeling stuck for so long. It feels SO good! Since my sessions with Melissa, I have started losing weight, almost effortlessly. I was finally able to launch my online business because I now have the confidence to put myself in front of people again. And I feel so grounded in a new relationship with my body that is focused on love and appreciation. The shame that has followed me around for years is gone and for that, I am forever grateful for Melissa.

For many years I had been struggling with behavioral issues that were creating darkness in my life. When I decided to seek help to overcome them, I came across an article on RTT and learned about a therapist named Melissa Pas Blake and her practice, Pasitive Solutions. I was hoping Melissa could help me with my problems so I called and setup a session with her. Going into the appointment I had a great deal of anxiety; I wasn't sure what to expect and was nervous about opening up to a stranger.

Fortunately, my fears were quickly put to rest by Melissa's kind empathetic nature, and the calming mood of her office. After a few moments spent telling her my story, she gently guided me through a hypnotic journey deep into my past, touching upon key life experiences that were at the root of my problem. Afterwards, clarity washed over a place in me that had once been dull and murky.

It was remarkable how Melissa, through RTT was able to drill in and help me pull the right levers to free my mind. I honestly could not have dreamt of a better outcome, she has given me the strength to leave my self destructive behaviors behind. Melissa Pas Blake and RTT are beyond amazing!

RTT ~ Rapid Transformational Therapy is a hybrid therapy that offers unparalleled results by combining the most beneficial principles of Hypnotherapy, (NLP) Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Developed by the highly acclaimed Marisa Peer who has perfected this method over 30 years.

Using RTT we have the ability to access the subconscious mind allowing us to uncover, reprogram, and upgrade limiting beliefs and find the root cause of mental and physical issues, patterns or behaviors providing complete freedom and healing.

The direct access to the subconscious, along with other modalities used in RTT allows us to effectively, swiftly and permanently create the change you seek.

When you’re looking for change or experiencing issues, you want relief. You want rapid results and that’s exactly what RTT delivers. Unlike talk therapy, that can often take years and years, RTT most commonly delivers in a single session. Some issues may require up to, but not more than three sessions. 

Yes, it feels like magic, but really, it’s science. Rapid Transformational Therapy is freedom! It’s the doorway to your best self.



Since working with Melissa, a lightbulb has gone off. I've learned that I am in control of what I do and that I don't need to fall into old habits. Melissa helped me find the root cause of my issue and overcome it in one session.

RTT is for any anyone, young or old, who desires to feel better (internally or externally). RTT is for you if you have tried to change, but have been unsuccessful.

Hypnosis is not magic, it is science. It works by creating a burst of “Alpha” brainwaves, the same as when you experience REM when you are dreaming. That’s what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It is not difficult to do and is something that most people experience quite often, when you are engrossed in a good book or movie, or when you are driving somewhere arriving at your destination with no recollection of consciously driving there. Kind of like your on autopilot.



Each RTT session last between 90 minutes to 2 hours, so we ask that you block off 2 hours.

Am I awake?

Am I awake?

Yes, RTT/Hypnosis is a sleep of the nervous system. You don’t actually go to sleep. You are fully aware you are taken into a deeper level of yourself. You are in charge.

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No. That is a myth. You are completely aware and in control the whole time you are in hypnosis. You can talk with me throughout the session. You may drift into sleep state at the end of the session, you will eventually notice that your not hearing my voice and open your eyes. You will be fully aware at the end of the session. 

What does it feel like?

What does it feel like?

The experience of hypnosis feels different for different people, most people feel relaxed and at ease. For some, it’s a sleepy, floating sensation. You are fully conscious throughout and in control the whole time. The important thing to know is that your results are not dependent on how “deep” you go. The RTT process is effective whether you are a lighter or deeper state of relaxation.

What if I don't go deep enough?

What if I don't go deep enough?

Don’t worry about how deep you go. The depth of the trance is not linked to the result at all. Some clients think they are not very deep and yet they get positive results. Just allow yourself to relax during the session and assure yourself that it is ‘working’ and it will be effective.

What if I think I know the reason behind my issue?

What if I think I know the reason behind my issue?

What makes RTT amazing is that even if you think you know the reason, you typically see it in a completely different and new way during the session. That is what allows you to change the meaning and ultimately change your belief. For many clients, they go back to the scenes or memories that are totally different than what they have expected, just relax and trust that your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see.

what if the memories are painful or scary?

what if the memories are painful or scary?

It is important to remember that you are not reliving the scene, you are simply reviewing it, and that you are in fact safe. You will be reminded of this during the session and I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal.

When will I start to see changes?

When will I start to see changes?

Everyone responds a little differently, but there is typically 3 types of changes from RTT. Immediately, you feel a shift right away and immediate changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviors during and right after the session. Incrementally , you will see consistent shifts everyday and over time. Retroactive~ you don’t notice the shifts right away and then some time later you look back and see the things that are now different in your life.

How does it work in one session?

How does it work in one session?

RTT and hypnosis provide direct access to the reasons you feel how you feel. We are not wasting time talking about what your conscious mind thinks may be the cause. Your subconscious mind already knows the answer. Though the answers, you gain a new understanding, from a place of non-judgement. This allows your mind to let go for good. Then we are able to reprogram and upgrade your mind with the beliefs that empower you. Some issues can take more than one session.

What if I want another session?

What if I want another session?

RTT is designed to give you a powerful break though and create positive changes in your life. Depending on the issue some clients may need more than one RTT session on a particular issue. While some issues can be resolved in as little as one session, others require up to 3 sessions to the change.
