" The pain is not as bad as it was and sometimes I don't feel it. This morning when I got back I took a little nap and when I woke up I felt all this energy. Usually I just go back to sleep cause I'm depressed. But not today. I got up, went grocery shopping, made dinner and cleaned the kitchen and still feel energized. I have never felt this way before. Thank you very much. " - Client

For hypnotherapy, I come to you. And I am not your ordinary hypnotist. With me, there is no laying down and no soft music. With me, you are either sitting or standing and I hypnotize you in 2 minutes by using 3 progressive exercises, each one is meant to help you relax and focus more and more. Then we’ll spend 15 minutes to an hour depending on the issues at hand. And most therapies are successful within 1 to 3 sessions.

What is hypnosis? First of all, it isn’t sleep nor is it mind control and it certainly isn’t against your religion. In fact, each and every one of us are in and out of a hypnotic trance hundreds, if not thousands, of times every day the very moment you focus on a book, a TV show, a phone call and have blocked out the noises around you which could have easily distracted you. This hypnotic trance, which is actually "self hypnosis" is simply focusing on something while blocking out other things. Hypnosis, not self hypnosis, is when a professional hypnotist helps you achieve that state of focus.

Who can be hypnotized? Anyone who can listen to the sound of my voice, follow my instructions and trust in me that I have your best interest at heart. If, however, I ask you to stare at a point and do not take your eyes off of it and you look up or down or to the left or to the right or if you look at me or your friends, then you are not focusing nor following my directions and therefore you will not be hypnotized. That doesn't mean you cannot be hypnotized. It means that you're not focusing and following directions at this particular point in time. Many people who cannot be hypnotized the first time, quite often out of fear of the unknown, will easily be hypnotized the second time once their brain processes the information given from the first visit which will help them relax during their second visit.

Is hypnosis safe? Thanks to movies, a common misconception is that you’ll lose your willpower and do things you’ll never do, just like you may have seen on a stage show, or that you might get stuck in hypnosis. The truth is, you can’t be made to do anything you wouldn’t normally do and you can’t be made to do anything that's against your moral compass. The people who act out on a stage would have done so even if they weren’t under hypnosis because they are natural at clowning around. And if the hypnotist were to stop talking, you would simply open your eyes.

Why do people close their eyes and look like they're asleep when they're hypnotized? When the hypnotist says the word sleep, what is actually happening is your entire central nervous system will completely calm down, which means you will stop fidgeting, at which point you will become more alert than you've ever been which is why people who can calm themselves down and stop fidgeting can focus better than others on the job at hand.

What does hypnosis feel like? Your eyes are closed, you've stopped fidgeting and you feel relaxed and can still hear everything going on around you and you feel as if you could open your eyes but you are so relaxed that you just want to keep your eyes closed and enjoy the experience.
