Since 2001, the Florida Institute of Complementary and Alternative Health  – FLICAH – has had a proud history of educational contributions to students, professionals and our community. Pedro and Dorys started to dream about having an Institute so they planned the founding of the institute Hypnosis For You in February 12, 2001 in the city of Doral, Miami Florida, with only one program, Clinical Hypnosis.

From one program started with 10 students, to now six programs with more than 200 students + alumni practicing across the United States, South America, and the Caribbean – FLICAH has evolved. It remains the institute’s goal to continuously expand the understanding and utilization of our educational programs in our community.

Since its founding, FLICAH has sought to preserve and convey the classical modalities of hypnotherapy and honor the principles that guide hypnosis care:

  • Hypnosis Basic
  • Advance Hypnotherapy Course
  • Master Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • Hypnosis Pain Management
  • Hypnosis for Sport Certification
  • Anodyne Certification
  • Regression Specialist I Certification
  • NLP Practitioner
  • NLP Master Practitioner

Every year in the United States, millions of people find relief and healing through the natural treatment approaches of alternative medicine.

During its earlier years, Hypnosis For You went through several changes, training were not only local but they were provided at a national and international level. FLICAH taught students from different countries in South America and from different states of USA.

By 2012, we changed our name to the Florida Institute of Complementary and Alternative Health as we added new programs – Psychology Certification, Sexology Education, Holistic Health Coach Certification, and Medical Hypnotherapist Specialist Certification to reflect our broader mission.

FLICAH was developed in response to the need for culturally sensitive professional training
