“The single biggest impediment to any individual's ability to achieve success in any area of their life is the presence of emotional blocks that prevent them from taking the actions needed to actualize their dreams.”  --Dr. Andrew M. Weil

We generally recommend 2-4 hypnosis sessions for any given issue. If you have a lot of stress and anxiety, or an entrenched, long lasting issue then please expect 4 sessions. Additionally, although rare, some people with chronic conditions can benefit from ongoing sessions that are spaced out over longer periods of time. 

What is Hypnosis?

Recognized by the American Medical Association since 1958 and taught in many medical schools including Harvard University, hypnosis and hypnotherapy is used to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psycho-genic illnesses. In fact hypnosis can be traced all the way back to ancient cultures and has been used in modern culture for over 200 years. It is estimated that approximately 85% of people will readily respond to clinical hypnotherapy. It may even succeed where other, more conventional methods of treatment have not produced the desired results. If you have an average or above intelligence and the willingness to follow directions you can be hypnotized. All hypnosis is self- hypnosis, in other words you are in control. You allow yourself to be hypnotized by following the hypnotist's instructions. 

Hypnosis is a naturally occuring state of mind where the critical factor (which facilitates communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind) is relaxed and selective thinking is maintained. Once you have opened communication with your subconscious, you can discover any limiting ideas, or beliefs, that may be holding you back. With hypnosis we help you change self limiting thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. If you've ever been driving down the highway so focused on the argument you had with your boss and completely missed your exit, you were in a form of hypnosis! 

Many people fear hypnosis because of the way it has been portrayed in books, movies, television, and by stage hypnotists. Professional hypnosis and clinical hypnotherapy is very different from those portrayals. Hypnosis is very similar to daydreaming or being so completely engrossed in a book or TV program that you will pay no attention to someone speaking in the same room. Yet when a person is in hypnosis they are aware of their surroundings and at a moment’s notice are able to cope with an emergency if one was to arise.

Hypnosis The Model of the MindIf the conscious mind has logic, reason, will, and determination, 
why isn't it easy to accomplish our goals?

It is actually our subconscious mind that drives us. If there is a habit, pattern or belief in the subconscious that overrides your conscious wishes, your subconscious will win every time. Through Hypnosis, the subconscious is reprogrammed for the results you desire.

The subconscious mind holds your emotions and your memory bank thus allowing hypnosis to bring about the desired changes, much more efficiently by going directly to the source.

Through hypnosis, your subconscious mind can facilitate healing the body, overcome bad habits, 
and help you get control of your life.

Medical Hypnosis

Medical Hypnosis Is a form of hypnotherapy usually requiring a referral from a doctor and advanced training by the practitioner. Medical hypnosis is based on the belief that 90% or more of all diseases are caused by negative emotions. Any time a person has a problem that involves the emotions or feelings, mood, attitude, nerves and the like; it can have far reaching effects and may cause mental and/or physical discomfort. Most dis-ease has one thing in common: there is an underlying cause or pattern in the individual emotional make-up which needs to be more fully understood. The real solution is to determine the cause of the problem, which is harbored in the subconscious, and remove it.
