Natural Childbirth – Calm and Relaxed with Hypnosis!

HypnoBirthing: Instinctive Birthing through Relaxation

http://www.midwiferytoday.com

For most women who have given birth, the thought that natural childbirth could be calm, relaxed and even pain-free seems to be a completely ridiculous idea.  It was far from their experience, and they opted for pain meds in order to get through it.  But most of these women were unaware of the power of their mind, and how hypnosis can in fact help expecting mothers achieve “the impossible” — a calm, comfortable, joyful birth experience.  Yes, it is possible!  I have been teaching HypnoBirthing classes for the past few years now both privately as well as at Emerson Hospital, and many of my mothers have experienced wonderful natural births.  The following article was written by one of my HypnoBirthing colleagues, and is very informative.  Please take a moment to have a read…

Loose Weight with Hypnosis Virtual Bypass Surgery

In 2011, I became a Certified Bariatric Surgery Support Consulting Hypnotist at the the National Guild of Hypnotists annual convention. If the following article interests you and you’d like to have the same experience, please give me a call!  The program I am trained in is not only for virtual weight loss surgery, but it was specifically designed for working with anyone who has actually had bariatric surgery (bypass, banding, sleeve) and has continued to struggle with their weight.  Altering your anatomy is not usually sufficient for permanent weight loss — your must also alter your mindset as well.  Hypnosis is Bariatric Surgery for the Mind!

Do You Avoid Exercising Due to a Fear of Sweating?

Do you avoid exercising due to a fear of sweating? This woman in England did – until she used hypnosis to overcome her phobia. The phobia of excessive sweating, called hypothermosis, made her afraid of working out. Once she conquered her fear with the help of hypnosis, she began exercising and lost a bunch of weight, dropping from size 18 to size 12 pant size in a year!

Bank worker overcomes bizarre phobia of SWEAT to lose eight-stone

http://www.dailymail.co.uk

“In early 2010 Tracey Stone overcame her ‘nemesis’ thanks to a course of hypnotherapy. At her biggest, she was a size 24, but she has now dropped from a size 18 to a size 12. She said: ‘I’ve had a fear of excessive sweating since I was at school. It got to the point where I was literally not walking anyway through fear of breaking sweat. I freaked out at the thought of going to the gym. But now I feel happier and healthier after finally overcoming the nemesis that had haunted me for so long.'”

Debunking the myths about hypnotherapy

“There are people who say ‘I can’t be hypnotized.’ Well, generally everyone can be hypnotized. If you can relax, you can be hypnotized,” Pemble said. “Now, whether or not you allow yourself to be hypnotize, whether or not you allow yourself to relax enough is up to you. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. I’m just your facilitator and tour guide.”
