I am always looking forward to my next session with Lili. I found her name through an aquaintence, and had my first hypnotist sessions over skype more than a year ago. Was impressed this could work so well over skype. She is very professional, and I would dare say she has the 6th sense to what really needs to be worked on. The results I have seen whilst working with her are amazing, and this is why I have and will continue recomending her to anyone that needs to make any changes in his/her life, or deal with any issue.

Things that were funny were not funny anymore. My desire to do the things I used to do was waning, then I had no desire to do anything at all. I did not even know the names of parts of my body that were hurting and my eyes would not focus. I was forgetting words. I thought I was depressed but because of all of this I did not realize it was due to my trouble sleeping. After I had my first session with Steve at Hypnosis Healthcare, I wanted to go home to nap but Steve encouraged me to stay awake. I thought the hypnosis may put me in a fog but Steve checked me before I left and I was really focused. The first night I was able to sleep through it in the entirety as was the following nights. I did not feel groggy like when I was on my medications. I actually have gone back and we have now began working on my weight.

My name is Lynzie and I am 29 years old. I started smoking at the early age of 15 years old and was smoking up to a pack a day by the time I was 16. I was an active person playing softball and doing cheerleading but smoking definitely caused me from ever being able to play to my full potential. It caused me many setbacks throughout the years. By the age of 24, I had been hospitalized many times for different reasons. I was always sick. I developed viral meningitis, cysts on my skin, and many different viruses that because of smoking, my body couldn’t fight. After almost two years of being in and out of the hospital and after seeing over 20 different doctors, I knew I had to change something. When my 25th birthday was approaching, I realized that I was coming close to ten years of being a smoker and I just couldn’t let that happen. After trying different methods to quit and being unable to do so, I finally decided On June 16th 2012, to go see Renee, a hypnotherapist, to be hypnotized to break my bad habit. Although I was skeptical at first, I was desperate and I needed to try something. The hypnosis sessions were very relaxing, comfortable, and a truly great experience. And the best part about the hypnosis sessions were that this past June, I got to proudly celebrate 4 whole years of being smoke free! I am the healthiest that I’ve been in years. I have not felt this good since I was very young. I am able to work out now to my full potential. I have not been sick in years! And Im 7 months pregnant with my first child and feel amazing!My life has been forever changed and I could have never done it without the help of hypnotherapist Renee Oswald. I feel so blessed to have been given a second chance for a healthy life. No words could ever describe how thankful I am for Renee and this opportunity she gave me. I truly recommend that anyone trying to break a bad habit or pick up better habits, go to Renee Oswald for a hypnosis session. She is a wonderful person and her hypnosis really works!

It was very pleasant experience. Ray is very professional and knowledgeable. He has a deep understanding of what really the person needs to address during the session. His personality and appearance make you feel comfortable and inviting. My session with Sunshine Hypnosis helped me to heal and release unresolved issues of my past lives and more. I am very grateful and happy to make the decision to come to Ray for help. :))) My life has changed for much more joyful since than.

Stephanie is a wonderful healer and very talented in hypnosis and reiki. I can't wait to work with her again. I was totally relaxed during my session and felt safe to be open and honest with her in my pre session interview. She was very informative too. I am so grateful to have found her.

I highly recommend David and Hypnosis for Health & Happiness. Went to them to quit smoking. I've been a smoker for 45 years. Tried many many times to quit and nothing worked. Not even getting lung cancer. With David's help I can now say that I am a non-smoker. And it happened with none of the uncontrollable urges that I had in the past. Wish I would have found Hypnosis for Health a lot sooner.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is a wellness technique that works by promoting positive behavioral or cognitive changes. During successful hypnosis, the client should be eased into a state of deep relaxation in which the conscious mind takes a back seat and the subconscious mind becomes more active. The client is often able to let go of critical thoughts and become receptive to the therapist’s suggestions. In this state of hypnosis, motivating suggestions can bypass your usual mental resistance and internal defense mechanisms. For example, even if you want to quit overeating cupcakes, you may have some level of resistance that your rational mind can’t overcome. During hypnosis, the positive suggestions made by the hypnotherapist can bypass your usual blocks, helping you to achieve the formerly unachievable: stopping overeating, quitting smoking, mastering public speaking, or losing your fear of heights. The goal of hypnosis is to strengthen and empower the client’s motivation, commitment and focus. Consider working with someone who is not just trained in hypnosis but also is a licensed therapist or psychotherapist who can bring their academic background into your session.

What can hypnosis help you with?

According to many sources including the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine and a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), hypnosis is scientifically proven to help relieve both mental challenges and physical pains. Hypnosis can alleviate stress and reduce pain after surgeries, has been shown to relieve anxiety in children in the emergency room, and can be useful for managing pain associated with everything from arthritis to migraines. Hypnosis is non-invasive and gives you a way to control pain or discomfort that might otherwise seem out of your hands. Hypnosis shouldn’t be used as a substitute for medical care, but may be an excellent complementary tool that is best provided by a trained therapist or licensed medical provider. The University of Maryland Medical Center shares many conditions for which hypnosis can be useful:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Tension headaches
  • Alopecia areata
  • Asthma
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia
  • Addictions
  • Bedwetting
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Labor and delivery
  • Skin disorders, such as acne, psoriasis and eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Stress
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Cancer-related pain
  • Weight loss
  • Eating disorders
  • Warts
  • Indigestion (dyspepsia)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Smoking cessation

How is hypnosis used in therapy?

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to help clients overcome challenging issues such as anxiety, phobias, pain management, hot flashes and more. Hypnosis is also a way to help let go of addictions like smoking, overeating and gambling. In and of itself, hypnosis is not a therapy, but it can be used in conjunction with therapy to empower and encourage the person receiving it to make positive change. Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis and will benefit more from hypnotherapy than others.

According to Dr. Clifford N. Lazarus, speaking for Psychology Today, hypnosis is a “genuine psychological phenomenon that has valid uses in clinical practice … hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention or concentration, often associated with relaxation, and heightened suggestibility. While under hypnosis (i.e., in a hypnotic trance), it seems many people are much more open to helpful suggestions than they usually are.” The suggestions made in a therapeutic setting get deep into a person’s brain, beyond their conscious thinking, leading to behavior change and the ability to overcome challenges that might otherwise seem insurmountable.

What is the effectiveness of hypnosis?

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recognizes the healing power of hypnosis and its proven effectiveness for anxiety, pain control, smoking cessation, headaches and more. Hypnosis may be safe and complementary way to augment medical attention you are receiving for a chronic illness or pain, or a way to resolve an addiction or phobia that you are otherwise unable to control. Hypnosis does not work on every person. When scientists began studying hypnosis in earnest, a report published by Stanford University titled “The Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale” demonstrated that different brains respond to hypnosis in varying degrees, and a very few do not respond at all. Working with a trained psychologist, you’ll soon determine whether you are a good candidate for the healing benefits of hypnotherapy.

During a hypnotherapy session, the therapist will bring you into a state of deep relaxation in which the critical, conscious part of your brain recedes and the subconscious mind becomes alert and focused. The therapist will make suggestions, based on your intended goals, that will take root in your subconscious mind. These suggestions should affect your thinking in a positive way and empower you to make change.
