Free Hypnosis Class for Acting Success Each Sunday Afternoon at 3:30 pm
To Join Just Call 712-432-3900 and enter access code 644549. That’s it!
What makes a person successful or not successful in “the business”?
*Is it good looks? There are plenty of “ugly” actors that make good money are there not?
*Is it your age? There are old actors, young-adult actors, middle-aged actors, child actors and more right?
*Is it having the right body? Did Chris Farley have the right body? There are thin actors and heavy actors in movies and on TV every day…
The fact is, that even though there are many reasons a person might *think* they are meant to struggle, this does not have to be the case. People make a living in the entertainment industry every day – Why not you? If it is your dream it is what you are meant to do. Period. This class is free because I believe that every person deserves to follow their dreams and working with amazing clients in the industry has given me so much – I’d like to pay it forward. This class is my gift to you, you can also tell a friend to join if you like. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring human phenomenon and you go into hypnosis already multiple times every single day, it’s just that we usually don’t know when we do it. Why not make use of this powerful ability that you are already doing? Hypnosis is perfectly safe: You don’t go to sleep, you don’t lose control and you are aware of everything happening around you at all times. You can talk, laugh, open your eyes, even end the session at any time. I have worked with actors, comedians, reporters, musicians, producers, cameramen and many others in Los Angeles. One-on-one sessions are also available at my Tarzana, CA office location or via skype and telephone.
First Class Starts Tomorrow May 18th!

Hypnosis has long been the subject of movies and television shows but today it is becoming known for much more than entertainment: It is regarded by many doctors as the future of complimentary medicine. The fact is that hypnosis is actually very different from the movies. You don’t go to sleep, you don’t lose control and you are fully-aware of everything happening in your environment. Studies have shown that hypnotherapy can be especially effective for helping people to manage chronic and acute pain. Today a new breed of hypnotists are working hand-in-hand with medical doctors to manage pain associated with everything from Firbromyalgia, Cancer, Migraine Headaches, Back Pain and much more.
· A study conducted at The Burn Centre at the Red Cross Hospital in Beverwijk, The Netherlands found a 50%-64% reduction in reported pain level in patients.
· In 2006 a study conducted at The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine reviewed various controlled trials involving the use of hypnosis to control pain. It concluded that hypnosis can provide a significantly greater reduction in pain than physical therapy or the management of medications. It even found that the hypnotic treatment did not have to be called ‘hypnosis’ for it to be effective.
· The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, New York reviewed 18 studies conducted on the use of hypnosis to relieve pain over a two-decade period. It concluded that hypnosis provided an effective way to help people deal with pain because it had a “moderate to large hypnoanalgesic effect.” It further concluded that hypnosis should be more widely used in the treatment of pain.
· The Department of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care, University of Liega, Beligum confirmed that hypnosedation combined with local anesthesia can be used as an alternative to more traditional means of sedation. It based this conclusion on the reported use of hypnosis in over 1,650 surgeries.
· A study conducted at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, USA found that hypnosis was very useful for patients undergoing angioplasty procedures. Thirty-two subjects were recruited for this study. Sixteen were randomly assigned to be in the control group and 16 were hypnotized before they underwent an angioplasty (a procedure where a balloon is inserted into a vein and then inflated to help open the vein while the patient remains conscious and aware). This study found that the surgeons involved were able to keep the balloon inflated 25% longer with the hypnotized group. Forty-four percent of the control group also asked for more pain medication, compared with only 13% of the hypnotized group.
· A study published in the European Journal of Pain (Vol. 3(1) 1999; 7-12) conducted by The Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Karolinska Institute and Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden studied the effects of hypnosis for Fibromyalgia. The subjects taking part in the study all reported experiencing less pain when they were in the state of hypnosis compared to that of when they were in a state of rest. The researchers also found that there were significant differences in the way the blood flowed through the brain in these two states. They found that during hypnotically-induced analgesia the blood flow “was bilaterally increased in the orbitofrontal and subcallosial cingulate cortices, the right thalamus, and the left inferior parietal cortex, and was decreased bilaterally in the cingulate cortex.” This study provided verifiable proof that hypnosis leads to real physical changes in the brain, which is something many clinicians are unaware of. (In an attempt to understand what happens in the brain when a person is hypnotized and then given suggestions for pain relief, subjects were recruited who were suffering from the painful condition of fibromyalgia. PET (positron emission tomography) scans were then taken of their brains when they were resting and then when they were in a state of hypnotically-induced analgesia).
· Another study involving the use of hypnosis for burn pain was conducted by The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. The clinical utility of hypnosis for controlling pain during burn wound debridement was investigated. Thirty hospitalized burn patients and their nurses submitted visual analog scales (VAS) for pain during 2 consecutive daily wound debridements (the process of removing nonliving tissue from burns). On the 1st day, patients and nurses submitted baseline VAS ratings. Before the next day’s wound debridement, subjects received hypnosis, attention and information, or no treatment. Only hypnotized subjects reported significant pain reductions relative to pretreatment baseline. This result was corroborated by nurse VAS ratings. Findings indicate that hypnosis is a viable adjunct treatment for burn pain.
· A study performed at Guy’s Hospital Medical School, London England found that hypnosis was very effective for helping to treat Migraine Headaches. Forty-seven subjects were recruited and asked to report the number and severity of migraines they had each month for one year. Twenty-three subjects were treated with hypnosis (and taught self-hypnosis) and 24 were treated with the drug prochlorperazine (Stemetil)(belongs to a group of medicines called phenothiazines & helps to correct chemical imbalances in the brain, allowing it to function correctly). At the end of the study it was found that those who had been treated with hypnosis experienced significantly fewer blinding migraine attacks than did the medicated group. Furthermore, 10 of those who had been treated with hypnosis no longer experienced any migraines at all, compared to only 3 in the other group.
· D. I. Rosenthal, Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School, Director of Dept. of Bone and Joint Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston found that hypnosis can actually accelerate healing. He conducted a study showing that broken bones healed an average of 2.5 weeks faster with hypnosis. Other assessments also revealed that those who had used hypnosis required less medication for the pain, had a significant improvement in the mobility of their ankle, and had an easier time descending stairs. This preliminary study reinforces findings of a fascinating link between mind and body in augmenting healing. If the mind can be harnessed to accelerate the speed of healing in a difficult test – that is, the relatively fixed, normative course and time frame of a nondisplaced bone fracture – it may be even more effective in other applications in which the course of healing is presumed more variable.

Unfortunately chronic pain is something that many people face at some point in their lives. But when persistent pain causes us to become less-active this can lead to weight gain – Which usually makes the pain worse. This forms a “loop” where the problem often gets progressively worse as time goes on. But as a hypnotherapist I have found that both issues can be approached simultaneously with positive results for the client. Talk to your doctor to see if hypnotherapy might be a good adjunct therapy for you, if it is visit http://www.PainManagementHypnosis.com to download four FREE audio recordings.

In today’s society sweet sugary treats and beverages are everywhere – but for many people this is seriously impacting their health in a negative way because they just can’t stop eating so much sugar. Does this sound like you? Do you ever wonder if your sugar cravings might actually be a full-fledged addiction? The truth is that if you are having a challenging time regulating your sugar consumption you are not alone. But hypnosis can help! Here’s how:
Think about it like this – When we are born everything is neutral, neither good nor bad. But as you go through life you receive programming from the outside world that determines everything about you. Say for example that we eat chocolate, and it tastes good, well then your mind learns that chocolate is “positive”. But when we eat broccoli something different happens for many of us. We don’t like the taste so broccoli so we learn that it is “negative”. So if we are later given a choice between chocolate (which is good) or broccoli (which is bad) we will usually choose chocolate every time. It really isn’t a “choice” if you think about it! The choice has already been made! We also have many emotional attachments to the “positive” or “negative” associations with certain foods: What happens if you were raised in a household in which you get spankings if you refuse to eat that broccoli? It becomes more of a “bad” thing. And if you receive chocolate as a reward for doing good things chocolate becomes even more positive because now it is associated with love, comfort, acceptance, and so forth. In this way you become programmed to prefer sugary foods and dislike healthier foods. All of us have some programming around food – Can you think of any that you have that you would like to change? Do you have to finish everything on your plate? Do you eat too much candy, sodas, or junk food? Is chocolate or other sugary food associated with feelings of love, comfort, family, fond memories, etc?
Hypnosis can be a very effective way to help you manage your sugar intake, whether your goal is just to cut back the amount of sugar that you eat to a healthier amount or to eliminate it from your diet completely. Hypnosis has helped people all over the world to lose weight and/or maintain an ideal body weight. You can take control and say goodbye to those sodas, chocolates, candies, and other sweet treats. Hypnotherapy can help you to rewrite the programming in your mind. I urge you to give hypnosis a try – If you would like to learn more about how hypnosis can help YOU just pick up the phone and call 424-27-THINK (424-278-4465). I lost over 30 lbs with hypnosis – If I can do it you can do it!

Nocturnal Enuresis (or Night Time Bed Wetting as most people know it) is something that affects a large amount of children – and it isn’t only limited to young people. The truth is that many adults also deal with urinary incontinence on a regular basis. This can be hard for a person to deal with emotionally, and so it is something that we see in therapy very often, in fact, hypnosis is considered by many doctors to be a very effective treatment and adjunct to other therapies so as a hypnotherapist it is a very common thing that I work with.
The statistics overwhelmingly show that young males are significantly more prone to this issue than females, and it is believed that there is often a hereditary component to many of the cases – Apparently if the child’s father suffered from enuresis the chances are much higher that their children will also wet the bed. But the thing to remember here is that statistics show only 5%-10% of bed wetting cases are caused by a medical condition. So there is often a deeper mental and emotional issue here behind the obvious symptom of bed-wetting. Often times the person may just be sleeping very deeply, so deeply that the “alarm” the full bladder normally sends that will awaken a person before an accident happens goes unheard. The most common component that I see in my office however is some component of Secondary Gain (also called “Secondary Benefit Syndrome”). Think about it like this: If a child wets the bed and mom gets up in the middle of the night to come be with you, cleans you up, and then takes you to bed with her and dad where you will feel safe, there is a sort of “emotional reward” system in place. This is not what is happening in every case of course, but it is something that is very common. Of course the child doesn’t consciously make a decision to wet the bed, it is done on a subconscious level, and if this is the reason behind the bed-wetting hypnosis will be very effective at helping you to manage the issue, especially if you are also using traditional approaches and following doctor recommendations.
But every case is different, so it is important to treat the person as an individual in every case. The cause of bed-wetting will be different every time with just a few common “themes”. As you know I am a big research nut so here are the results of two clinical studies done on the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for bed-wetting:
The first was a study of general suitability of hypnosis for treatment of enuresis and how it compared to treatment with different amounts of medication. The study was carried out over a six-month period, it involved 48 males ranging in age from 8-13 years old. According to the study hypnosis was very effective at treating the bed wetting (and interestingly enough inducing “trance” wasn’t even necessary in many cases. They probably used conversational hypnosis techniques like what I mentioned on the phone in the case of the therapist that successfully helped a young client to stop wetting the bed by simply talking about baseball). You can see the abstract of the study HERE: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1469-7610.1985.tb01635.x/abstract
Another study was conducted with twelve boys aged 8-16 years old, after 6 sessions it was found that hypnosis had long-lasting effects for chronic and complex enuresis. The doctors even went on to say that they would recommend hypnosis to be included in every bed-wetting therapy. Out of the twelve boys 9 were able to achieve and maintain 6-7 dry nights per week, the other three boys had either legitimate physical conditions requiring surgery or additional anxiety issues originating from within the family that exacerbated the problem. You can see the abstract of the study HERE: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14983195
As you can see hypnosis is great for helping with bed-wetting no matter what age you are. If you’d like to make the change pick up the phone and call 424-27-THINK (424-278-4465). I look forward to meeting you soon!
