• It IS possible, and I can help.
    if you could STOP


You desperately want to stop biting your nails.

You’ve tried EVERYTHING & NOTHING has worked.

You’re ashamed, hiding, and maybe even repulsed by your disfigured fingers and sick of the continual throbbing pain.

You’re afraid your nubby bitten nails have damaged your teeth and run up your dental bill.

You wonder if your career is at risk because people see you as nervous or not up to the job.

You’re scared your nail biting exposed you to parasites and other bacteria that get you sick.

You’re smart. You’re accomplished and this behavior just doesn’t fit.

You want to stop biting your nails. You’re willing. You’re able.

You’re ready 


Can you imagine?

  1. Feeling in control and proud you’ve overcome a lifelong habit without using white-knuckle willpower
  2. Looking like the professional you are
  3. Buying and wearing beautiful rings
  4. What you’ll do with the money you’ll save on dental and doctor bills
  5. Being free of shame.  Feeling calm and centered

Will NLP and hypnosis help me to stop biting my nails?

NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) helps you identify your triggers and how you encode your behavior in your unique pattern.With guidance, you’ll create a new desirable pattern enabling you to  powerfully shift your behavior with lasting results.  Hypnosis targets your unconscious mind, helps you decrease stress and anxiety and creates positive supportive suggestions for feelings and behaviors.

How long will this treatment take?

Since NLP and hypnosis are fast techniques most people with average IQ’s or better are able to resolve nail biting in an average of  three sessions.

What if I am afraid of being hypnotized?

Hypnosis is a safe state of deep relaxation. You are aware and in control at every moment and can’t be made to do anything against your will.

Our minds work on two levels the conscious and unconscious. We make decisions, think and act with our conscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. In the relaxed state of hypnosis you quickly connect with your unconscious mind installing new positive behaviors. It is therefore quick and easy to change habits of a lifetime. You will learn how to create a state of relaxation to reduce daily stress.

Meet Tsgoyna

tsgoynaHi, I’m Tsgoyna Tanzman and I’m a Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming as well as a Certified Hypnotherapist and an expert in helping people eliminate unwanted habits like NAIL BITING and limiting beliefs.

For more than two decades I’ve coached and rehabilitated people with Traumatic Brain injuries as well as healthy successful people who occasionally get stuck or debilitated by limiting behaviors.

I like to say you don’t have to have a brain injury to damage your brain. We all do that from time to time by our limiting beliefs and behaviors.

I know this personally.

I was a successful Speech Pathologist, world traveler, speaker and author and by all evidence I appeared to be living a happy and independent life.

But I was silently suffering and hiding.

For over 40 years, when nervous, stressed or bored, I picked the hair from two of my knuckles and rubbed the skin on my thumb raw till it bled.

As a child and yes, gulp I will admit, till late into my teens, I was also a thumbsucker. I tried lots of different techniques from bandaging my fingers to snapping rubber bands, but I always went back to what soothed me—picking and rubbing.

One day I summoned the courage to seek help. I’d had enough!

I volunteered to be the subject of a demonstration of a technique to eliminate unwanted habits during my training as a Master Practitioner of NLP.

Though it was embarrassing to stand in front of a room of my professional peers, more than anything I wanted to be free of this awful habit.

What happened was nothing short of AMAZING!!! I stopped then and there.  As an author, book signings were now something I enjoyed as I confidently signed my name and handed over a book. 

As a result, I am passionate about helping people take a problem that has plagued them for so long and ELIMINATE it!!!

It is gratifying to see people realize their inner strength, reconnect with themselves and find love and acceptance and of course have BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY NAILS.

You can gain confidence, control, and of course beautiful nails.

Happy Clients

Seriously, two 45 minute sessions with Tsgoyna and my 50 plus year chronic nail biting habit has been banished. No more ragged embarrassing nails. I’ve tried dozen of “cures” this one addressed all the unconscious behaviors and replaced them with calm hands and pretty nails :)) I am actually amazed, shocked and immensely grateful. Never ever thought I’d be 100% free of this habit. Thank you, Tsgoyna from the bottom of my heart to the tips of my now pretty fingers. – R.K. Riverside, CA

Work and life are extremely busy right now. Any other time my nails would be bitten to the nub. But surprisingly to me, I am growing my nails. So the progress is working. Thank you for your help in trying to conquer this life time battle. – T.S. San Bernadino, CA

Highlight of my trip was sitting next to a global executive for our company and feeling comfortable with my hands and nails while eating, speaking and resting them on the table while chatting after dinner. – T.M. Charlotte, NC

I haven’t bitten my nails which is awesome and don’t really have the urge either ! Thank you lots. My jaw pain is not as intense which is a lot of help! – N.C. Redondo Beach, CA

Nail biting was a constant reminder that I had a bad habit that I tried to break 1000x and failed every time. I was embarrassed being a grown man who had his fingers in his mouth all the time…like a child who couldn’t outgrow a thumb sucking habit. My nail biting (or lack of) has continued to be a success thanks to you, and I cannot thank you enough for helping me break my  habit. I am happy to report I am still going strong.T.D. Manhattan Beach, CA
