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!

She says, “It’s not been hard. There’s not been a hard day. All along the way it has been simple because I’m not fighting it.”

New Milford Hospital Offers Hypnosis During Surgery

Relieving the effects of surgery with hypnosis

http://medicalxpress.com

Dr. Courtney Chambers, a surgeon at New Milford Hospital in Connecticut, says of hypnosis for surgery: “What I’m seeing is that more people are using less narcotics and using narcotics for shorter periods after surgery. To hear that people only stayed in bed for a day or two days as opposed to a week or 10 days moping around is very encouraging.”

“…hypnosis in the operating room is less common, but said studies have shown it can be effective. Researchers have found that hearing is the last sense to decline under anesthesia and that a patient can still be influenced by hypnotherapy while under anesthesia…”

Hypnosis Surgery

http://www.sciencentral.com

“Hypnosis has been misunderstood as a nightclub stunt, a loss of control and a type of sleep, but it’s been a therapeutic tool for centuries… Research is showing that hypnosis, a therapeutic tool for centuries, can help some patients endure difficult medical procedures.
