Hypnosis for Wellness

Hypnosis For General Wellness, Habit Control, Stress Relief, and Personal Growth and Transformation

I welcome clients who seek stress reduction or support for their wellness goals. For these clients, I offer sessions which focus on Hypnotic Relaxation (HR) followed by sessions designed to address your presenting problem(s).

Many Conditions Are Helped Through Hypnotic Relaxation Sessions

With Hypnotic Relaxation, you are given suggestions to achieve an inward-focused awareness in which it is possible to reduce stress, manage pain, or respond to suggestions to achieve greater control over behavior or symptoms.

You experience physical and emotional changes in real time. Your breathing slows and deepens, your brain waves slow down too, you are able to access personal insights and perspective that may not have been available to you otherwise. You’ll learn to use your mind and thoughts to manage emotional distress and worry, to cope with unpleasant physical symptoms, and/or help you to change certain habits or behaviors in order to promote greater wellness. The goal is your own self-empowerment.

Most people experience Hypnotic Relaxation as a pleasant, restorative experience. All you have to do is relax and listen to the sound of my voice. However, you’ll also learn self-hypnosis so you can use it at home.

Scientific research has shown that the following conditions may respond well to one or more Hypnotic Relaxation sessions:

  • Worry and sadness;
  • Stress;
  • Sleep problems;
  • Fears;
  • Habit control (smoking cessation, weight control);
  • Menopausal hot flashes;
  • Childbirth preparation and post-partum stress;
  • Irritable bowel syndrome;
  • Pain management;
  • Anticipated surgical or medical procedures;
  • And more.

But remember, Hypnotic Relaxation is not a substitute for medical or mental health care from a licensed provider. HR should be used as a complement to other health services.

Hypnotic Relaxation for Sexual Concerns

Talking about sex and intimacy can be hard to do, especially if you’ve been dealing with such problems alone. In fact, many people who come to me have never spoken to another person about their sexual difficulties and concerns. My first task, therefore, is to help my clients experience relaxation, to learn how simply relaxing can have a positive effect on their bodies and minds. After at least two sessions using Hypnotic Relaxation, we are then able to work on addressing specific problems through counseling, coaching, and more focused hypnosis.

Session plans for Applied Hypnotic Relaxation are based on the Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy methods created by Dr. Gary Elkins. Some of the language used on this page is adapted from his suggested brochure language (Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy, 227-230).
