"C.H.A.N.G.E. THE COURSE OF ILLNESS"

It is beneficial in Hypnotherapy, as well as traditional medicine, that a positive attitude is maintained.  It is important that the individual be willing to take a pro-active roll and accept that relief, healing and recovery are possible. An ethical, qualified Hypnotherapist will not work with physical illness or chronic conditions without the approval of an appropriate physician.

Hypnotherapy is a complimentary therapy that enhances recovery easily, naturally and comfortably. There are now more physicians beginning to offer a more holistic approach to the treatment of illness and disease.  Health professionals have begun to consider the importance of emotion, attitude and the inner healer in treatment procedures. Hypnotherapy and visualization techniques enhance the treatment process and provide a means of reclaiming control. Hypnotherapy works effectively in conjunction with your medical team’s care to resolve your physical and emotional health problems.

We cannot change the diagnosis but we can choose the attitude with which we will deal with it. Remember: "Our Subconscious Minds Have Wisdom of Which Our Bodies Are Not Always Aware"

Some of the chronic conditions in which Hypnotherapy has been proven effective are:

  • Fibromyalgia - This condition is characterized by widespread discomfort, fatigue, sleep problems and cognitive dysfunction.  Hypnotherapy has been proven to produce a 50% or greater reduction of symptoms in 86% of patients. This therapy approach was tested and verified at the UCLA Medical School.
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome - In 1996 the American Gastroenterological Association accepted hypnotherapy as a treatment of IBS.  Based on years of experience, a noted gastroenterologist, Dr. Peter Whorwell, says hypnotherapy can help alleviate many IBS symptoms.
  • Pain Management - Hypnotherapeutic methods for effectively relieving pain or discomfort are numerous.  The strategies may vary and depend on the condition and personality of the patient.  Suggestions may be direct or indirect, or may utilize guided imagery, hypnoanalysis or other modalities.

Q: How Does Hypnotherapy Help?

A: Hypnotherapeutic methods for resolving your physical and emotional health problems are numerous and varied and the choice may depend on the condition and personality of the patient.  Suggestions may be direct or indirect, or may utilize anesthesia, guided imagery, hypnoanalysis, diversion or other techniques.

Attitude is a major factor. Sometimes tests which prove inconclusive, conflicting diagnoses, guilt, anger or other emotional problems instill levels of fear and confusion which may be dealt with through Hypnotherapy. Teaching the patient to use self-hypnosis techniques can be highly beneficial as they learn to manage or diminish their pain or discomfort to tolerable levels.

Q: How Many Visits Will I Need?

A: You will begin to notice some improvements with the first session.   We provide an audio CD recording of the hypnosis session that you can continue to use daily for a period of 28-32 days to accomplish maximum benefits. You will return at least once more in approximately 10-14 days. We will review your progress and incorporate additional suggestions into a new hypnosis session to facilitate continued progress. Subsequent sessions are determined by the client and the Hypnotherapist based on the clients needs and progress.

If you are unable to come into one of our offices, for personal sessions, we can discuss your issues and needs over the telephone and then record an individually designed CD for you. House calls or in-hospital visits may also be a viable option.
