Manage Pain    

Is pain interfering with your evey day life?  Are you recovering from surgery or an illness? In working with clients for over 25 years, I have developed a highly effective approach for managing and releasing pain.

Whether your pain is chronic or acute, or you are recovering or preparing for surgery, you have come to the right place.

In our work together,
in person or per phone,  you learn powerful techniques to
pain in depth, and you receive highly effective tools to overcome pain both in the moment, and long-term . We combine hypnotherapy, coaching and NLP for you to get fast results. I also create customized hypnosis recordings to help you relax and practice at home. My proven approach has shown to have an over 90% success rate.

Managing pain with hypnotherapy is a gentle yet highly effective way to reduce and at times eliminate acute and chronic pain.  Hypnosis is a completely safe, enjoyable and natural form of deep relaxation and concentration, utilizing the mind body connection.  Through this laserlike focus you learn to interact with your body more effectively, and receive tools to release pain.  Post hypnotic suggestions continue to automatically and successfully manage pain after each session. 

Research has shown that guided imagery and calming relaxation works reliably, quickly and safely in managing pain.   For example, an analysis of 18 studies by researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York revealed substantial pain-relieving effects from hypnosis.

Phone-Coaching sessions combining coachinghypnotherapy and NLP are also available. This is especially convenient if you live outside the San Francisco Bay area. As part of this process, I create customized hypnosis recordings for you, to help you manage pain. With this MP3 or CD you can safely reinforce the suggestions, visualizations and triggers (anchors) for feeling well, as often as you like, and in the comfort of your own home. In addition you get to enjoy the deep relaxation and well-being that hypnosis provides.

You can also order a customized recording or sessions by visiting our store.  This is especially helpful if you live outside the San Francisco Bay area.

Private Sessions are usually conducted at my offices in Santa Cruz, CA.

“I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful influence and input you have given me.  Being a chronic pain patient, your input and recordings have been of great importance to me.  By helping me to remind myself of being a higher aspect of myself than just being a person in pain.  All of your input has been a working aspect of my life.  You have helped me realize a higher aspect of myself than just living in pain.  Thank you for your unconditional understanding, and your kind presence.  Words can not express the gratitude I feel.”
