    Sometimes we are in conflict with ourself—we want something or wish to feel differently about something, yet either work against the very thing we desire or feel blocked—as though another part of us is in control. Perhaps you’ve tried conscious strategies to act or logically talk yourself into feeling differently, with limited or no success. Einstein once said, ”We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

    Since hypnosis works by communicating with the subconscious mind (where memories and self-thoughts are stored), hypnosis takes the client directly to the origin of an issue. Once brought out into the light of day, together we explore and better understand the issue. I draw upon a variety of techniques to effectively help my clients discover their own self-limiting beliefs, false assumptions or negative self-thoughts. With new perspectives and healing words, feelings and behaviors change. Possible now are opportunities to create new and healthier, happier ways of being. Since the conscious mind makes decisions informed by our subconscious thoughts, a change of perspective has the potential to benefit not just one, but multiple areas of one’s life.

  • Medical Issues

    How can hypnosis help clients dealing with medical issues? The subconscious and our physical body communicate with each other 24/7, via thoughts, feelings and images. A certified medical hypnotherapist can tap into this “conversation” for multiple purposes, such as to send healing messages or beneficial instructions to the body. Conversely, medical hypnosis can be used to help the client better understand the wisdom of their body, gaining valuable insight.

    Additionally, our subconscious thoughts and feelings influence our overall health, how fast we heal, our perception of pain, and have been proven to impact outcomes of medical procedures. In my medical hypnotherapy practice, I use a combination of hypnosis, therapeutic suggestions, guided imagery, and NLP to help clients face their medical challenges with a positive mental attitude, to reduce suffering, improve sleep, and to heal faster. Because clients are often given mental exercises or self-hypnosis to do at home to compliment their sessions, clients report feeling good about taking a proactive role in their own healing process.

    Below are some suggested applications. Tap on a topic to learn more:

Fear and anxiety increase levels of stress, which decrease our body’s natural ability to heal and may influence the effectiveness of medical interventions. Hypnosis can help clients identify the underlying source of these feelings, allowing deeper understandings to emerge. New perspectives alleviate old fears, empowering clients to better face their health challenges. Hypnosis can also help neutralize emotions associated with a prior trauma or negative experience which still persist, affecting a current medical condition.

While chronic stress sets the stage for illness, acute stress wastes energy that may be used towards healing. Hypnosis deeply relaxes the body and quiets the mind—effectively lowering heart rate, blood pressure, pain, improving digestion, sleep, and much more. Learning Self Hypnosis as a self-care strategy benefits all body systems.

Medical hypnosis offers many effective methods for the relief of chronic pain, post-surgical pain, or pain resulting from injury. These methods when combined with a self-hypnosis practice, produce astonishing, rapid results, helping clients live more comfortable lives.

Hypnosis for Optimal Results / Rapid Healing
In my practice, clients who receive therapeutic suggestions and visualize optimal outcomes prior to surgery, respond better to surgery with decreased bleeding, less post-surgical pain and discomfort, and heal 20-40% faster than average. These outcomes reflect current medical research.

The body is designed to self-heal. Although this process happens naturally, this activity can be quickened through the use of medical hypnosis. When the subconscious is directed to focus upon a specific area requiring healing, more of the body’s natural resources are sent there. By doing this, the healing process is accelerated, with reduced associated pain.

Hypnosis and guided imagery assist my clients dealing with cancer in numerous ways, the first of which is alleviating the anxiety of the diagnosis. Therapeutic messages sent to the body with imagery can recast chemotherapy into a positive role, so that the body perceives this medical intervention as an ally—thereby decreasing pain and stress, while reducing treatment side effects such as nausea and fatigue. Studies show that patients using self-hypnosis and visualization techniques feel more relaxed, are better prepared for their treatments and face their health challenges with a positive mental attitude. Once cancer-free, hypnosis and future-paced imagery serve to help people move on with their lives. **

  • Learn Self Hypnosis for Self Care

    I teach most of my clients how to do self-hypnosis for themselves, as a self-care strategy for several reasons. 1) It’s an easy, economical and portable way to experience deep relaxation and comfort when and where it’s needed. 2) It effectively calms the mind and quiets mental chatter, and 3) Overall, it brings a measure of control back into a person’s life.

  • Quit Smoking

    Smoking is a physical and psychological addiction that responds well to hypnosis. Working with the subconscious allows attitudes to change, which effects behavior. The smoking habit is most definitely changeable, if the person who smokes really desires to stop. What’s truly remarkable is how rapidly your body begins to heal, once you stop smoking.
