Oprah's O magazine published the benefits of using hypnosis for weight loss. Good Housekeeping, Reader's Digest, Sports Illustrated, Red Book, Psychology Today, Ladies Home Journal and many more magazines continue to publish the benefits of utilizing hypnosis for personal change. Once informed about hypnosis, you will know that it is safe, natural, and very effective.

A lot of people can relate to wanting something (exercise, diet, stop smoking, etc). Most are aware that eating healthier and physical activity are the key to weight reduction and a healthy lifestyle. Yet, they still don't do it!

Although hypnosis can stimulate fat elimination, it does not make fat magically disappear. During a hypnosis session, suggestions are presented to the unconscious mind that direct behaviours to change, which in lead to the weight loss and motivation. Imagine feeling that unhealthy foods are undesirable and you actually want to work out and be physically active. As the hypnotic suggestions implant and take hold, the body reacts and moves the metabolism into high gear.

Fergie quit biting her nails, and stopped a meth addiction with hypnosis; Samuel Jackson and Matt Damon stopped smoking with hypnosis; Jane Pauly was hypnotized on her show and explained the benefits of hypnosis.

Also, there are thousands of ordinary people out there, who with hypnosis, are changing their lives by reprogramming their minds for success and bringing  about prosperity consciousness, losing weight, stopping smoking, reducing stress and more. They are continually improving their self and increasing their lifestyle by using self hypnosis. With Hypnosis you'll succeed much faster in your endeavours than without it!

How it's suppose to work: Regularly taking ten or 20 minutes to focus thoughts on a single phrase or image can lower blood pressure, decrease pain, and reduce anxiety and depression.
What the research shows: Based on dozens of studies, a National Institutes of Health report in October 1996 urged doctors to accept hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for chronic pain, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, premenstrual syndrome, and infertility and so much more.

A new study suggests that hypnosis might be an answer to the rhythmic rasp of night grinding of teeth, according to an article in a recent issue of In Health. Dentist Henry Clarke, at the Oregon Health Sciences University, has long used hypnosis to help relax anxious patients. Knowing that stress is believed to be a major cause of tooth grinding, (Bruxism), the researchers tried the technique on eight volunteers who were moderate bruxers. He hypnotized the patients weekly for about two months, using such phrases as "lips together, teeth apart" and relaxing images such as hot towels on the face. Patients were instructed to play a tape of a session while falling asleep each night.

After four to nine sessions, Clarke found that nightly jaw muscle activity had decreased an average of nearly 40%, and facial pain was reported to be much diminished.

If you've had trouble dropping excess pounds, maybe it's time to put your mind to it. According to a recent report in the "Journal of Counselling and Clinical Psychology", losing weight---and keeping it off---may be easier when HYPNOTHERAPY is part of the treatment.

Researchers at the University of Connecticut at Storrs analyzed six studies to treating obesity---from imagery to self-monitoring---by themselves and in conjunction with HYPNOTHERAPY. On average, individuals receiving HYPNOTHERAPY lost 15 pounds, while non-HYPNOTHERAPY patients shed only six.

Significantly, patients whose treatment regimen included this technique kept the pounds off for two years following therapy. "The effectiveness of HYPNOTHERAPY seems to increase over time," says Irving Kirsch, Ph.D., a University of Connecticut psychologist and the study's author.

Rx for Pain: Relax

Hypnotherapy can relieve two health problems that plague millions of Americans: chronic pain and insomnia. That's according to a panel convened by the National Institutes of Health, whose findings are summarized in the July 24/31 Journal of the American Medical Association.

The 12-member panel, which included family doctors, public health specialists, epidemiologists and others, attended a three-day conference, during which members evaluated data on specific therapies for treating chronic pain and insomnia. The panel found "strong evidence" that relaxation and behavioral techniques can reduce chronic pain from a variety of medical conditions, including cancer. As for improving sleep, the benefits were less clear but still promising.

Conference chairperson Julius Richmond, MD, professor emeritus of health policy at Harvard's Department of Social Medicine, says many relaxation techniques can help slow heart rate, lower blood pressure, and relax large muscle groups--all of which can diminish perception of pain.

Does Hypnosis Work? A Comparison Study

American Health Magazine reported the following findings from a recent study.

• Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions

• Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions

• Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions

The majority of people believe hypnosis is a last resort tool for smoke cessation, weight loss or changing habits. Few people know hypnosis is a dynamic and vital healing process embracing all aspects of mental health care. Hypnosis is client-centered with its focus on the discovery of the origin of a person’s issues. Through the process of hypnosis/regression the unconscious mind goes to the original cause, which then gives the person and practitioner the opportunity to process the original feelings surrounding the original experience/cause. These surrounding feelings can be healed, thus empowering the person to live the life they want to live.

This study clearly points out—Hypnosis is more effective and works more quickly than traditional talk-therapy or psychoanalysis. In a hypnotic state, you are more receptive to new ideas and you can more effectively process the emotions linked to the experiences, which created pain, fear, sadness, anger, guilt, shame, humiliation and low self-esteem.

Hypnosis is a special form of communication to the subconscious mind where habits are established and memory is stored. Because the language of the subconscious mind is visual, the more detailed your image is of your goal, the faster your subconscious mind will create the changes you desire. Once your subconscious accepts a new idea, you automatically accept it at a conscious level.

Hypnosis is a natural state of the mind that is between the aware state and sleep. Driving a route you are familiar with and not being conscious of every turn you make is similar to the hypnotic state. Hypnosis allows you to access your subconscious mind, which makes up 90% of your brain which stores all memory. With hypnosis, you reprogram and release thought patterns and habits to make desirable, lasting changes in your life.

You are in control: Hypnosis is completely relaxing and you are completely aware during the experience. It's a myth that someone is making you do something. The hypnotherapist helps you connect with your subconscious mind, which puts YOU in control of your subconscious mind—the most powerful and empowering aspect of your brain. Hypnosis restores your freedom of choice, which you haven't had in many years!

Hypnosis and Healing in a Harvard Study

The Harvard Gazette had an article regarding the use of hypnosis to help surgical wounds mend faster. A portion of the article is below. The whole article can be found at

Marie McBrown was invited to test whether or not hypnosis would help heal the scars from her breast surgery. Marie (not her real name) and 17 other women underwent surgery to reduce their breast size.
It's a common operation for women whose breasts are large enough to cause back and shoulder strain, interfere with routine tasks, or prompt social and psychological problems. The pain and course of healing from such surgery is well-known, and a team of researchers headed by Carol Ginandes of Harvard Medical School and Patricia Brooks of the Union Institute in Cincinnati wanted to determine if hypnosis could speed wound healing and recovery.
"Hypnosis has been used in Western medicine for more than 150 years to treat everything from anxiety to pain, from easing the nausea of cancer chemotherapy to enhancing sports performance," Ginandes says. A list of applications she provides includes treatment of phobias, panic, low self-esteem, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, stress, smoking, colitis, warts, headaches, and high blood pressure.

"All these functional uses may help a person feel better," Ginandes continues. "I am also interested in using hypnosis to help people get better physically. That means using the mind to make structural changes in the body, to accelerate healing at the tissue level."
Four years ago, Ginandes and Daniel Rosenthal, professor of radiology at the Harvard Medical School, published a report on their study of hypnosis to speed up the mending of broken bones. They recruited 12 people with broken ankles who did not require surgery and who received the usual treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. In addition, Ginandes hypnotized half of them once a week for 12 weeks, while the other half received only normal treatment. The same doctor applied the casts and other care, and the same radiologists took regular X-rays to monitor how well they healed. A radiologist who evaluated the X-rays did not know which patients underwent hypnosis.The result stood out like a sore ankle. Those who were hypnotized healed faster!
