Hypnosis for Stress Management & Pain Relief with Insight Hypnotherapy...feel the calm!

Why is it that sometimes you can glide through the roughest day with ease, while at other times the smallest bump in the road can throw you into a spin?

Stress is an amazing thing - it alters the way your brain and body work to such an extent that you might as well be a different person!

Your thinking styles change, your emotions become less balanced and you do things you wouldn't normally do.

So how can you manage stress more effectively? How can you escape that trap of more stress => poorer coping => more stress?

Hypnosis for stress management will help you gain perspective when you need it most. It will retrain your brain to spot when you are becoming stressed and give you tools to deal with it.


Stress & Pain

Stress and pain often go hand in hand. Hypnosis, meditation, and relaxation can help break the cycle. 

During hypnosis, you’ll focus on relaxation and letting go of distracting thoughts. You may become more open to specific suggestions and goals, such as lowering pain. Research shows that medical hypnosis can help with both sudden (acute) and long-term (chronic) pain from cancer, burns, and rheumatoid arthritis.

It may also ease the anxiety some people feel before surgery, and help with anxiety and pain after surgery. Hypnosis has been used for pain relief for centuries, and even today is widely used in surgical procedures.

How does it work? By changing the way your brain interprets and responds to pain signals. Studies have shown that although the pain signal may still be produced under hypnosis, the brain simply does not respond to it by creating the sensation of pain.

Before you decide to use hypnosis for pain relief, it's always important to check out what is causing any pain you may be experiencing, as pain is your body's way of alerting you to problems and making you take care of yourself. But once pain has served its purpose and you are taking the right course of action to deal with the problem, there is no need for you to endure more pain.


Hypnosis for Stress Management & Pain Relief 

Hypnosis for stress management and/or pain relief reaches directly into your unconscious mind with powerful hypnotic suggestions to foster feelings of relaxation and control.

After just one session, and as you listen repeatedly to your recorded session on your own, you'll notice significant changes beginning to happen. You'll become aware of how:

  • The stress and strain of the old struggle starts to melt away.
  • Your instincts about what will make you more relaxed and in control start to get sharper.
  • Your long term view as a person who can control stress responses becomes your default position.
  • You find it getting steadily easier to breathe and give yourself distance from stressful situations.
  • You start to feel so much better about yourself in every way!






Individual Hypnotherapy Sessions (in person at my office)

Sessions are ~60-90 minutes ($100/session). Individual sessions are tailored to the unique goals of the person using a combination of hypnosis, brain entrainment, behavioral strategies, and meridian tapping, as suitable to the situation. We will briefly review your goals, go over some behavioral strategies, and then do the hypnotherapy session. I will show you how to practice self-hypnosis to reinforce the messages. I also provide you with a hypnosis audio(s) for you to listen to on your own to further reinforce the changes.

  • Cognitive (thought) and behavioral (action) techniques: self-hypnosis, goal setting, reading educational materials, etc.
  • Brain Entrainment: a method to stimulate the brain into entering a specific state by using a pulsing sound, light, or electromagnetic field. The pulses elicit the brain’s frequency following response, encouraging the brainwaves to align to the frequency of a given beat. This frequency following response of brainwave entrainment can be seen in action with those prone to epilepsy. If a strobe flashes at their seizure frequency, the brain will "entrain" to the flashing light, resulting in a seizure. On the positive side, this same mechanism is commonly used to induce many brainwave states, such as a trance, enhanced focus, relaxation, meditation or sleep induction. The brainwave entrainment effectively pushes the entire brain into a certain state.
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)/Meridian Tapping: a bilateral brain reprogramming technique that involves tapping on the body's meridian points while inculcating helpful verbal messages.


Remote Hypnotherapy Sessions (via phone )

Sessions are ~60-90 minutes ($75/session). Individual sessions are tailored to the unique goals of the person using a combination of hypnosis, brain entrainment, behavioral strategies, as suitable to the situation.

Would you prefer staying within the comfort of your home or office for your session?  Whether your reason is that you are located out of the area, that you are very busy and don’t have time to drive to my office, or  simply that you can relax more deeply in your own space, this option is your best  choice.  Whatever your reason, Remote Hypnosis Sessions are similar to in-person hypnosis sessions, and provide your mind with the exact same benefits – in fact, I have found that my remote clients thrive in the same way as my local clients do.

We begin with an in-depth conversation, and when I feel that I understand your unique needs, usually, we conclude our conversation, hang up, and I record your personal session within 24 hours and email it to you as an MP3.  

There are instances where my client would prefer to relax and listen along as I record the session. This can be accomplished as well.


Couples/2-Person Hypnotherapy Sessions

Sessions are ~60-90 minutes ($150/session) . Sessions are tailored to a common goal of the couple/partners/friends using a combination of hypnosis, brain entrainment, behavioral strategies, and meridian tapping, as suitable to the situation.  It can be especially helpful when two people are trying to lose weight, quit smoking, etc. to do it together. Partners/friends can bolster success when they have a common goal!

We will briefly review your goals, go over some behavioral strategies, and then do the hypnotherapy session. I will show you how to practice self-hypnosis to reinforce the messages. I also provide you with a hypnosis audio(s) for you to listen to on your own to further reinforce the changes.


4-Person Group Hypnotherapy Sessions

Sessions are ~60-90 minutes ($300 per session (includes 4 people)).

Do you have a small group of 4 people who could benefit from hypnotherapy? Sessions are 60 minutes. Group sessions offer a great introduction to hypnotherapy and are effective for initiating goals and reinforcing desired behavior. 

We will briefly review your goals, go over some behavioral strategies, and then do the hypnotherapy session. I will show you how to practice self-hypnosis to reinforce the messages. I also provide you with a hypnosis audio(s) for you to listen to on your own to further reinforce the changes.
