This focused approach to goal success adds extra advantage in accessing the power of your complete mind, to help you achieve more than you thought possible – more easily, quickly, and effectively than traditional life coaching or basic hypnosis alone.

There is nothing scary or uncomfortable about relaxing your body, quieting your busy mind, or focusing your energy on your goals. Hypnosis is a combination of all these things, wherein you rehearse in your mind specific relaxation, suggestions and images to change your behavior. Hypnosis is an enjoyable state of mind similar to various dream states (reverie, daydreams, visionary, lucid night dreams). Over the last fifty years, research shows that these hypnotic techniques are easy, safe, healing, natural and drug free; effective without negative side-effects, thus it is a practical self-help strategy.

The concept of hypnosis was introduced to America during the American Revolution. Hypnosis was endorsed and recognized as a healing modality by the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Psychological Association (APA), and the British Medical Association (BMA), French Medical Academy (FMA), and the Catholic Church, all during the 1950’s.


Today, Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is recognized as a profession of standing in the business archives of the United States. Meditation, relaxation, hypnosis and biofeedback are among those therapies documented and proven effective as a scientifically and medically accepted treatment to reduce stress, pain, improve self-management skills and health. Hypnosis is recognized as a brief method of therapy for lasting self-improvement, as most people achieve their desired results within a few sessions or less. However, it is not considered a “miracle cure” or “quick fix” that somehow instantly corrects a situation or cures a health condition. Hypnosis is not an all-or-nothing phenomenon, but rather a continuum in self-improvement and wellness. Research over 50 years has shown that people who are hypnotized, are twice as likely to succeed in achieving their desired outcome.

Professional training and scientific research in hypnosis and hypnotherapy is continually being conducted by leading colleges across the nation including Harvard School of Medicine, Stanford, New York University School of Medicine, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, Seton Hall School of Medicine, and Johns Hopkins University, New York University, and more.

Advanced documented scientific research in the field of hypnotherapy is currently being clinically tested in hospitals and medical centers worldwide. Clinical tests and research reported in mainstream medical journals acknowledges hypnotherapy helps people tap their own body’s power to heal. The evidence in the effectiveness of hypnosis applied in a therapeutic setting for healthy and productive lifestyles is overwhelmingly positive and beneficial.

In the field of Psychoneuroimmunology, studies in stress, disease, and brain structure have revealed that hypnosis stimulates brain communications by sending messages between cells that provide a link for mind-body interactions, functions, responses and physical performance. When a feeling is added to a thought, it has greater impact on achieving desired positive results. PET, CAT, and MRI scans of brain activity during hypnosis reflects metabolic, hormonal, and chemical changes that cause emotional expression to become strongly activated, which allows people to connect more powerfully with their emotional feelings, by creating motivation and meaningful understanding of things, thus people become more productive and effective in their lives.

In the late 1800’s, French doctor Jean-Martin Charcot, discovered that some neurological symptoms were psychologically caused from unwanted memories. Progress an development of modern hypnotherapy gained medical interest and acceptance through research in suggestibility and pain control by an American psychologist, Clark Hull, following World War II, when it was discovered that hypnotherapy was especially helpful in treating soldiers with battle fatigue, injury, shock, and what is now called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). French Doctors Liebeault and Bernheim, from the famous Nancy Medical School, introduced calming words and soft voice for hypnotic trance. They also emphasized the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and introduced the use of psychotherapeutics and hypnosis together.

The phenomena of altered states of consciousness, was studied by Carl Jung who developed the theory of the collective unconscious, which is referred to today as super-conscious thoughts. In the late 1800’s, French psychiatrist, Sigmund Freud, introduced the concept of the unconscious mind, and developed free association techniques and the use of imagination as a variation of suggestion therapy in psychoanalysis. During this time, it was discovered that suggestions, when given in trance, remained during the waking state. Today, this is called post-hypnotic suggestion. In the early 1900’s, French pharmacist, Emile Coue, discovered the power of autosuggestion, or waking suggestion, introducing the concept of self-hypnosis. His famous autosuggestion formula is “Everyday in every way, I am getting better and better.”

Today, the practice of self-hypnosis and the power of suggestion through the use of positive,

life-enhancing statements or suggestions is referred to as affirmations. Dr. Milton H. Erickson, the Father of Hypnosis, introduced the concept of reprogramming the mind through suggestion therapy for effective change in attitude and behavior, or mind-body communication. This latest hypnotic technique is now referred to as neuro-linguistic programming or neuro-linguistic psychology (NLP), the ability to reprogram the mind like programming a computer for personal achievement.

There is a definite paradigm shift in medicine toward combining conventional and alternative therapies for improved health care. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) opened an Office of Alternative Medicine (OAM), which oversees and funds research for alternative therapies since 1992 including guided imagery and hypnotherapy. The use of hypnotherapy has expanded. It is now highly recognized as an important tool in life coaching, counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatry, neurology, obstetrics, emergency medicine, burn therapy, dentistry, and related fields in the healing arts, social sciences and human services.

Many physicians, health practitioners, and hospitals now recommend that the complementary modalities of relaxation techniques, hypnosis and meditation are truly beneficial, inexpensive, and actually enhance conventional health treatment and the quality of life. Hypnosis has truly become as a highly effective science and natural self-help tool that accelerates the whole process of successful results. It can be used in conjunction with other types of health care assistance, or used by itself. You can listen to self-hypnosis CD’s, practice suggestion therapy with personal affirmations, and/or experience private sessions with a professional Hypnotist or Hypnotherapist.

Hypnosis helps people improve the quality of their life. Breakthroughs and applications in personal development have made hypnosis a trusted and useful science in self-management, communication, and performance skills. Hypnosis is used by the Armed Forces, law enforcement agencies, professional sport teams, Olympic athletes, hospitals, health care centers, educational institutions, and major corporations throughout the world. It is universally recognized that the power of thoughts, feelings, memories, beliefs, imagination and expectation have a direct and profound affect on the quality of life. Through the mind/body connection, hypnosis helps you reach specific goals in all areas of life by reinforcing natural talents, internal resources, and positive expectation for achievement. Hypnosis empowers people to help themselves; as it builds self-confidence and a sense of self-accomplishment for remarkable results, and lasting success in personal development.

Hypnosis is NOT fake quackery, or an evil unknown phenomena, a magical ritual, religious black magic, or even supernatural in origin whereas “it” somehow mysteriously or magically has power over you. Since the beginning of time, mothers have sung soothing lullabies while rocking babies in their arms. this repetitious melody and continuous motion are both calming and hypnotic. People from many ancient cultures to modern times, have used the practice of hypnosis through the natural power of the mind for the purpose of healing, uncovering memories, self-improvement and spiritual revelation. The people who help others through the practical application of hypnosis and hypnotherapy are not psychics, mystics, or magicians with secret, unusual, special or supernatural powers. Today, Hypnotists and Hypnotherapists are medical professionals and caregivers, holistic practitioners, and motivational trainers.
