Stress and anxiety have solutions

Stress and anxiety wear on your body as well as your mind. Before you know it, you’re looking as old and tired as you feel. This can make you look unapproachable and unfriendly, which turns people off and makes you that much more isolated from friends, family, and potential partners. Hypnosis can help you get unstuck from the rut you’re in, feel more resourceful, and reintroduce you to the wonderful options that life offers.

It's not your fault!

Stress and anxiety are unconscious, learned responses. This is good news because it means that you can learn new responses. Only you can decide to start making the changes you need to get the changes you want. Using hypnosis, you can access your unconscious programming and change it to begin living a better, more resourceful life today.

Your health can improve

Stress and anxiety are bad enough but, left unchecked, they can take a toll on your physical health. Headaches, fatigue, stomach upset and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), reduced sex drive, and sleep problems can all result from untreated stress and anxiety. And these physical effects can impact your mood and behavior. It’s a downward spiral that you can stop when you take the next step and call for your no-cost consultation.

Take back your life!

How are stress and anxiety limiting your life? How have they damaged your relationships? The irritability, anger, sadness, and depression that can come from stress and anxiety can lead you to a life where you are withdrawn and isolated from your friends and family. Take your life back and discover how hypnosis can help you find relief from stress and anxiety.

Stress and atopic dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a complex disease traditionally involving the interaction of genetic, environmental, and immunologic factors. Recent studies suggest psychoneuro-immunologic factors and emotional stress are important in its evolution.  Psychologic and stress-reduction interventions were recently shown to improve patient well-being and to significantly improve cutaneous manifestations.

Self-hypnosis for anxiety associated with severe asthma

Management of asthma can be complicated by both medical and psychiatric conditions, such as gastroesophageal reflux, chronic sinusitis, and anxiety. When symptoms of asthma are interpreted without regard to such conditions treatment may yield a suboptimal outcome. This report emphasizes that anxiety must be considered as a comorbid condition in the treatment of asthma. Self-hypnosis can be a useful skill in the treatment of a patient with anxiety and asthma.
