About Us

Bonnie Slykhuis and Jenny Slykhuis-McDowell started H3 Hypnosis as a passion project almost a decade ago. The journey began as HypnoSIS, the sister hypnotist duo, performing in comedy stage shows and providing hypnotherapy to central Iowa residents. They honed their hypnosis skills through practice on their family and friends and their participation in numerous conferences and training seminars across the nation.

In 2017, Bonnie and Jenny were joined by their oldest sister, Kim, and her son, Scott, and HypnoSIS became H3 Hypnosis. Founders and new hypnotists alike believed in the importance of three things –health, healing, and hilarity–in improving our lives.
