Hypnosis for Optimum Physical and Emotional Wellness
Is Hypnosis Right For You? Does It Really Work?
Why does it seem so difficult to ever reach a goal? I mean really reach it for more than a day?
Think about it....
MOST people who want to lose weight....don't.
MOST people who want to earn more money...don't.
MOST people who want to quit smoking...don't.
It's true in almost every area of life.
Think about how many times you've said, "I'm going to cut out some of the sugar in my diet"....and then by the end of the day, you're having a sugary treat?
Or, how many times have you decided to save money by skipping Starbucks or a meal out....and, yet, before you know it, you're back to your usual spending routine?
It's easy to say the problem is "habit." That's definitely part of it, but there's more to it than that. What's keeping the unwanted habit in place?
In fact, just today, I saw an amazing statistic. Over 81% of adults believe they should write a book. Yet, only 1% of these people ever even start writing a book, and only a fraction of those folks ever actually finish.
So, what's going on here?
So, why is it so hard for us to just DO what we say we want to do?
The cycle of self-sabotage is fueled by our thinking that habit (or pattern change) is going to happen through willpower. I recognize the importance of examining thoughts and reframing them to be supportive of ourselves. However, the key ingredient missing from sustaining the changes we want is emotional mastery.
Most of our habits - the patterns we really adhere to - are fueled by our emotions not our thoughts.
That's why thinking, or willpower, alone will never be enough to obtain and sustain the changes we want.
If you think of yourself as a car, the steering wheel is your conscious mind. It makes your daily decisions, and governs your outer behavior, movement, and sensory function. When you eat an apple, your conscious mind “steers” your hand to your mouth, and tells your mouth to chew.
When you break your diet, or say something silly, it’s your subconscious that makes that happen.
Your subconscious is your engine, your central processing unit. It makes deep decisions, and governs what goes on “behind the scenes.”
Your subconscious decides right from wrong, makes you succeed or fail, and is responsible for careless or thoughtless mistakes. It gives you confidence, fear, anxiety, stress, strength, weakness, happiness, and lots of other emotions. It makes you confident or afraid to build deep relationships, determines how you perform at work, and does many more vital tasks that decide your life’s path and direction.
The good news is that you can decide what kind of fuel to put in your car. Fill your tank up with premium gas, and you’ve connected your conscious with your subconscious. Now you can steer and control your subconscious, and inject it with the power to achieve your goals of health, abundance, pain management - you name it - and be free from limiting habits and beliefs.
I know this is hard. You've likely been debating trying "one more thing" for months, if not years. But, I'm so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step of being here.
I'm confident that hypnotherapy can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome these challenges. Whether you're struggling with weight loss, smoking cessation, or stress management, it's important that you know you don't have to be alone in this journey. You can achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I encourage you to take a multi-pronged
approach to mental and physical wellness. There's no great panacea that
will cure anyone.
- Hypnotherapy is not enough.
- Exercise is not enough.
- Healthy eating is not enough.
- No one thing is ever enough.
It's always many different activities, new
habits, techniques, products working together that help people improve their
lives and achieve their goals.
I have found that when hypnotherapy is combined with a healthy lifestyle, true optimum health starts happening. The body is fortified, and the mind gains emotional mastery.

Who Am I and Why Should You Listen to Me?
Hello and welcome! Thank you so much for your time today.
My name is Melissa Stefanski, and hypnotherapy is my labor of love.
I used to get so anxious , so stressed out, that it felt as though my heart was going to pound out of my chest! I felt the stress in the form of headaches and nervousness throughout my body.
I would gain weight during especially stressful times, and my relationships suffered, too.
I have bought numerous products and countless self-help programs in search of that "thing" that's going to make these terrible feelings go away.
Nothing was working.
I wasted a lot of time and money stuck in self-help hell!
I started thinking maybe my genetic makeup was stacked against me, and there was no changing what genes had dictated. Maybe some people are wired to be more sensitive. Maybe some people have had events in his or her life to encourage wanting to hide away.
But, so what?
Resigning to feeling stressed, anxious or stuck in any bad situation is only one option.
Another option is to do the best with what you have. That's what I've committed to do for myself. That's what I want for you, as well.
There's no need for you to find a guru or buy another program for tons of money that is filled with rah-rah and no real substance.
YOU already have what it takes to make sustainable changes. YOU are the go-to source for achieving your goals.
Whatever your personal challenges may be, if you are willing to commit to your goals and work on them, you will make changes and feel better.
Hands-down, hypnotherapy has proven to be a powerful shortcut to brain change and life transformation.
Awareness and self-compassion are necessities for healing, and these qualities can grow throughout life. This means that our body, heart and mind continue to show us more and more about our self and how to flourish.
Hypnotherapy helps us...
1. Turn inward so we may uncover our blind spots - the parts just outside our conscious awareness - that are keeping us stuck and repeating patterns of automatic reactivity when confronted with life’s inevitable challenges and difficulties.
2. Change our minds! Humans are designed to change, to evolve. It takes curiosity, kindness, and practice.
There may not be a definitive day when you think, "Yea! I made it." But, one day you'll think, "I'm not sure when this happened, but things just feel better."
I am dedicated to offering effective and affordable hypnotherapy audios and life-enriching products for everyone who desires meaningful change. I've recently added aromatherapy to my stress relief toolbox and have had even more accelerated results!
As for the more boring information about me, I hold a BS and MA in Psychology and Biochemistry and currently working on my PhD. I am a certified hypnotherapist through the National Guild of Hypnotists.
Hypnotherapy Is Magical, But It's Not Magic...
Forget what you see in the movies. Simply put, hypnosis feels like meditation but with a goal.
Hypnotherapy offers a science-based approach in helping you attain your goals.
Given the multitude of stressors and negative messages we are faced with every day, it is no wonder that so many of us become sick, worn out, anxious, and depressed.
The body and mind do not work optimally when dealing with chronic stress.
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?
Research indicates that we are better able to learn, process information, and remember when we are relaxed. This makes sense! Think of the last time you were stressed out. Were you thinking clearly? Were you making the best possible choices for reaching your goals? When caught up in stress, most of us become overwhelmed with negative thoughts, bad moods, and unsuccessful behavior patterns.

Most of us have hypnotized
ourselves, sometimes over the span of our lifetime, with very stressful and
negative messages. We carry deeply ingrained messages from childhood into
adulthood. Some of these messages are positive and help us make successful
choices. Others are negative and may guide us into failure.
is a technique used to induce a heightened awareness and ability to
focus in the subconscious mind. The hypnotic state occurs naturally in
our everyday lives.
For instance, if you’ve ever found yourself so engrossed in a book that you stopped noticing what was happening around you, then you’ve experienced a mild hypnotic state.

Your awareness and focus were turned inward, toward your book. Hypnosis induced with the guidance of a professional can help you attain an even deeper awareness and focus toward the messages of your choosing.
Hypnosis brings your body and mind into a focused state. In a hypnotic state, your brainwaves function at an optimal level for receiving information.
What is this information? Messages that are positive and solution-based for achieving your goals! Through hypnosis, you are harnessing the power of your subconscious to program your mind and body for positive mental and physical results.
Hypnosis helps you home
in on your awareness of positive insights so that you no longer succumb to the
maladaptive effects of stress and negativity.
In essence, you are taking control of your choices, your feelings,
your behavior, and your success!

Personalized, affordable, effective
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to wellness. We all have different obstacles, stressors and struggles. Hypnotherapy offers a science-based approach in helping you quickly attain your goals by shifting how you think, act and feel - a portable skill set for your mind.
Hypnotherapy activates your whole mind for real, lasting results
How To Get Started
Press play and let the embedded messages and brainwave entrainment take you where you want to go. Listen once a day for the first 7 days and notice the difference. Whether you fall asleep or stay awake, these audio programs will infuse your mind, body and spirit, setting the stage for the positive change you choose.
Each hypnosis audio session is formulated with advanced embedded suggestions (NLP or neurolinguistic programming) that create strong positive changes in the subconscious mind. Each word is carefully selected.
Brainwave entrainment tones are mixed into the audios for even deeper relaxation, helping the mind become even more open to suggestion. Brainwave entrainment tones create new neural pathways between the left and right hemispheres, balancing the brain, enhancing mental and emotional health, improving self-awareness, and healing unresolved emotional challenges. This underlying audio technology drives the nervous system to higher levels of mental functioning, accelerating learning and creativity, facilitating deep meditation, and naturally stimulating the production of brain chemicals that lead to feelings of well-being.
Although the conscious mind's experience of the audio is different with each listening session, the other-than-conscious mind (also referred to as the unconscious or subconscious mind) always receives the entire message.
Each hypnotherapy session is designed so that you automatically enter the ideal brain state for relaxation and learning.
You are literally changing the neural pathways in your brain!
Hypnosis works well with:
- Cognitive (thought) and
behavioral (action) techniques
- Brainwave 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. All of the hypnosis session audios I've created have embedded brainwave entrainment tones.
- Aromatherapy: the sense of smell is strongly associated with
emotional memories. Essential oils are a fast, safe, and effective tool to
calm down the amygdala (the worry wart, drama queen, fear monger of the
brain) so that better thinking and emotional well-being can occur.
- Emotional Freedom Technique
(EFT)/Meridian Tapping: tapping
is a bilateral brain reprogramming technique that involves tapping on
the body's meridian points while clearing away negative thought patterns and then inculcating helpful messages.
Nothing Changes, If Nothing Changes:
You can't gain back time, BUT...
- Life is too short to stay stuck where you are, only to wonder "what if?"
- Each day is a chance to move your life towards something more than it is now. Don't let inaction build up regret... of wasted time, energy and opportunities.
- I finally realized that a lot of the constraints I thought I had... were really all in my own mind. This has been proven time and again. Your attitude is all that matters to determine what you're really capable of achieving.
Take charge of your circumstances
- Many of us leave our life to fate or coincidence. We allow external circumstances to take control and when things don't go right, we feel like we're lost and defeated. But the truth is, your current circumstances are inherited from your thinking and feeling patterns. If you change your original thinking and feeling patterns, you can change your circumstances.
No obstacle is absolute (and most are temporary)
- You may also feel that some obstacles are simply beyond your current ability and resources. I want to show you that every obstacle can be overcome by combining a full picture perspective with flexible angles of attack.
Every goal can be achieved
- There's no goal that is too big to overcome, if you know how to set it on your own terms. That means mastering the art of breaking things down and knowing how to measure and quantify your progress. With these two skills, a big goal just becomes a matter of stepping stones that you can fully control.
- Whether you want to solve problems, overcome obstacles, or achieve goals, you can find the best tool for the job at your fingertips. Just close your eyes, listen to the audio, and relax. See how easy it is to improve your life quickly and easily. You'll notice a difference immediately. You'll instantly feel more relaxed, confident, and better able to handle any situation you're facing - even after just one listening session! With consistent listening, you are changing the neural pathways in your brain for sustainable transformation.
The Most Valuable
Contributor to Success: YOU!
It is important to recognize
the significance of the role you play in accomplishing your goals. Hypnosis is
neither procedure nor prescription that is done to you. In fact, all hypnosis
is self-hypnosis in that you are an active participant in the process. The hypnotherapist
should be viewed as a catalyst or guide. You are an integral part in
reinforcing positive messages and fulfilling goals through your actions.
Success in attaining your
goals depends on you. Success in hypnosis works similarly to success in looking
after your physical health. For instance, if a doctor prescribes blood pressure
medication to a patient, that medication will work best only if the patient
takes the pill as prescribed, quits smoking, reduces stress, and eats a low
sodium diet. Otherwise, the blood pressure medication is “swimming against the
tide” so to speak with not much of a chance. It is like this when using
hypnosis. Success depends on many variables including personal attitude,
motivation, cooperation, and follow through with reinforcing practices.
