About Clinical Hypnosis
Hypnosis is considered to be a “complementary or alternative medicine (CAM)” intervention like acupuncture, massage, herbal remedies or nutritional supplements. Using hypnosis results in enhanced mind-body connection which can greatly improve quality of life by addressing fears/phobias, discomfort, habits, stress and anxiety. Hypnosis can be used to treat acute and chronic pain, anxiety associated with testing, medical/dental procedures (like needle sticks), and surgery. It can improve comfort and healing after surgery and be used to address the discomfort of labor and delivery in childbirth. Hypnosis is easy to learn, easy to use and mostly involves using your imagination, which is very self empowering. Hypnosis is not mind control or sleep. All hypnosis is self hypnosis.

Hypnosis Teaching Via Zoom
Although traditionally conducted in person, hypnosis is equally effective when
provided remotely via a video format, such as Zoom, or even by phone.
Conducting the session remotely provides for convenience and economy since
you do not need to spend time and money driving to an office and you get to
choose where you are for the teaching. To enhance the experience, it is
recommended that you are in a place where you feel safe and comfortable for
your session. Additionally, attempt to eliminate interruptions by communicating
with others about the scheduled day and time and posting a notice on the door of
the room, as a reminder.
