How did you get started doing this type of work?
For 15 years I had been helping smokers quit smoking using acupuncture, and it was fairly effective. When I discovered this method of working with smokers, it was so satisfying to see results so fast and so powerful, I decided to devote two full days each week to just doing this. Perhaps only cataract surgery is this dramatic.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I have been helping people quit smoking for 23 years. I have helped hundreds of smokers make the transition in one session because that is all that is needed. The secret is to pick the fruit when it is ripe. If the smoker is ready, then the process is easy, relaxed and effective.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There is nothing mysterious about hypnosis. People are conscious and in control the whole time. Hypnosis is just deep relaxation with focus. It is similar to being immersed in a good book or movie, or driving. In this state of relaxation the unconscious mind is open to suggestion. Since we are suggesting quitting smoking, the person who wants to quit is helping their unconscious mind get the message. That simple.
