Anita Bohannon-Kyle

EVOX Specialist

Anita Kyle uses a process called “Perception Reframing” to shift the way you feel and think about events in your life. The mind-body connection is very strong; our thoughts directly affect our health. Anita’s technique is a practical way to identify and shift away from negative thoughts that often run in the background of our minds. One patient from England described his experience with EVOX as — quoting now — epic!
