Anyone Who Can Focus Can Be Hypnotized
We all go in and out of trance regularly. Daydreaming is a typical example of this. It is always up to YOU whether you choose to go into trance in a therapeutic environment. Of course, there are those that are more suggestible and open than others. And the old adage “practice makes perfect” most definitely applies. If you can focus, you can be hypnotized.

People Can Change
Hypnosis is a very powerful tool for change, and your unconscious mind IS your faithful servant. Direct communication with your unconscious mind can be achieved through hypnosis. Your unconscious mind is the seat of all of your emotions, memories, and habits, and where permanent changes begin. Your hypnotherapist is simply an educated guide to assist you in communicating in the most effective way with your powerful unconscious mind.

You’ve Got To Want To
Whatever changes you seek, you have to want them for hypnosis to work. Remember, you never do anything you don’t want to do in hypnosis.

Hypnosis – The Truth
In a review of literature published in Psychotherapy: Theory Research and Practice (Volume 7, Number 1, Spring, 1970, Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D.), various types of techniques were profiled. The percentages speak for themselves:

Hypnosis: 93% recovery after 6 sessions (about 1-1/2 months)
Behavior Therapy: 72% after 22 sessions (about 6 months)
Psychotherapy: 38% recovery after 600 sessions (about 11 1/2 years).

Appointments typically last 2 hours, with follow-up sessions lasting 1 1/2 hours.

It includes 26 easy and enjoyable targeted activities that integrate body and mind to bring about rapid and often dramatic improvements in: Concentration, Memory, Reading, Writing, Organizing, Listening, Physical coordination, and more.

Since 1990, Brain Gym® has been selected annually by the National Learning Foundation, inspired by the private-sector branch of the White House Task Force on learning, as one of today's leading technologies for education.

Brain Gym® grew out of research started in 1969 by Paul Dennison, Ph.D. His research led him to the study of kinesiology, the science of body movement and its relationship to brain function.

At the time, it was already well established that coordinated movement is necessary for brain development. Babies and young children naturally perform what experts in childhood education call developmental movements. These movements develop the neural connections in the brain, which are essential to learning.

Dr. Dennison discovered a way to adapt and sequence these movements so they could be effective for older children and adults. The result is a system of targeted activities that enhance performance in all areas... intellectual, creative and athletic.

Taught in over 80 countries, Brain Gym® has been shown effective in published research studies both here and abroad.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

What is EFT?
EFT or Energy Tapping is a technique that works with acupuncture, acupressure, or stress relief points on the body. The fingertips are used to tap on these stress relief points to release disruptions that are in the body’s energy system.

How does it work?
We are still learning why EFT works so well. It centers on the profound effects of the body’s subtle energies using the theory that “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” Accordingly, EFT is an emotional form of acupuncture except that we don’t use needles. Instead, we tap with the fingertips to stimulate certain meridian energy points while the client is “tuned in” to the problem.

Based on impressive new discoveries involving the body’s subtle energies, EFT has been clinically effective in thousands of cases. Properly applied, over 80% achieve either noticeable improvement or complete cessation of the problem. It is the missing piece between the mental/emotional and the physical. These subtle energies circulating throughout the body have been largely ignored (until recently) by western scientists. As a result, our use of them for emotional and spiritual healing has been sparse at best. With EFT, however, we consider these subtle energies to be the front running cause of emotional upsets. As a result, we generate results that are FAR beyond those of conventional methods.

What’s in it for me?
One of the most appealing things about EFT is its simplicity. Even a child can learn it in minutes. You learn one simple tapping process, and no matter what is bothering you, chances are you will feel less bothered after tapping for it. Many times the negative feelings about a specific issue.
