Hypnosis...Is It Magic?

Not really, but a lot of my patients tell me it is. It becomes a magic wand for paralyzed patients when they can walk again, for patients suffering with chronic pain when they find they are no longer in pain, for heavy smokers when they free themselves forever and can breathe again, for patients with stress, anxiety or depression when they regain their self confidence and get back control of their lives. It has even been demonstrated to prolong life for, and put cancer patients into remission. Hypnosis is an incredible tool for losing weight and keeping it off forever.

With hypnotherapy used as a tool of psychotherapy, treatment is greatly accelerated. It is similar to a surgeon using a laser as a tool for surgery. That can get you out of the hospital the same day. Behavioral rehearsal techniques utilizing hypnotic inductions are used to enhance sports performance by concentrating on performance and reaching the goal. Similarly, this works for speaking performance. For exam preparation, hypnosis allows you to stay relaxed and enhances the power of your mind to concentrate and stay focused. Chronic pain, auto-immune disorders, sexual dysfunction and smoking cessation problems respond to my powerful mind over body techniques.

For panic, stress, anxiety, depression, compulsions and phobias, we work to develop post hypnotic suggestions which will allow you to bring forth your own potential to deal with your problems. Age regression techniques quickly identify the origins of your present problems. Once these are known, with some unique hypnotic interventions, we can then defuse and re-frame the issues, thus diminishing their power over you. Why suffer the slings and arrows of your past?
Turn the Past into Paradise. Live life to its fullest!
