Hypnosis is defined as a state of “focused attention.” Hypnosis has long been practiced and used, and was recognized as a credible and useful technique by the AMA in 1958.
Today there is less mystery surrounding hypnosis than ever before. Scientists can now see and track changes within the brain by using EEG measurements on people during the hypnotic trance. This is very exciting because we know that something is occuring, and you are in charge of that change as you enter the relaxed, open state of hypnotic trance.
Hypnosis is a valid and credible source of relief for several issues that get in the way of a person’s health and well-being.
Most doctors do not practice hypnosis because it is a time-consuming practice.
If you are under a doctor’s care and would like to use hypnosis as an adjunct technique, simply ask him or her for a written referral. Many doctors encourage the use of hypnosis as an adjunct device that puts you more in charge of your own care.
During the hypnotic trance, I will use the goals that we have set together to give your subconscious mind suggestions that will improve your situation. Together we find the place inside of you that is open and ready to create change.
Note: hypnosis is not magic. It does require the client’s cooperation and commitment. The client must be willing to do the preparation work and the work that is decided upon within the contract. Everything worthwhile takes work. The change you are seeking will be worthy the effort!
