What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis was recognized by the American Medical Association in 1955 as a very safe and effective process and recommended to its members. It is used for performance anxiety, fears and phobias, pain control, weight management, smoking cessation, childbirth, visualization, imagery for wellness as well as pre and post surgery just to name a few of its many applications.
Carrie Ann reiterates, “My goal is to help people realize and access their greatest potential, heal their life and achieve their goals.” Understanding you are born with the greatest computer anyone could ever imagine, hypnotherapy helps you access the subconscious mind (the hard drive of your computer). Programmed by the thoughts of our conscious mind, hypnosis creates a clear path to the subconscious promoting a state of heightened awareness and suggestibility. During hypnosis, one is guided into a relaxed state of awareness thereby creating access to that deeper layer known as the subconscious (and, during hypnosis, the subconscious is 90% more alert).
While quieting the conscious mind chatter and given positive suggestions to help the client achieve their desired goal, the client is fully aware of what is being communicated at all times during a session and, contrary to popular belief, will only accept those suggestions they agree to. The subconscious is the key to making any significant changes in behavior or performance and having agreed to these suggestions, it will therefore create the behavioral or physical changes in order to achieve what has been suggested.
In a recent study showing the efficacy of hypnosis, there was a 93% success rate produced after only 6 sessions.
A study by John Gruzelier, Professor of Psychology, revealed that self-hypnosis could strengthen the immune system by 48% in six weeks.
From the Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation in 1989: 80% of hypertensive patients lowered blood pressure and decreased medications, while 16% were able to discontinue all of their medications with the use of hypnosis.
“What the Mind Perceives and Believes, the Body Believes and Achieves.”
“After working with Carrie Ann to prepare me for surgery, and listening to the CD she made especially for me before and during my surgery, the entire surgical staff were amazed that I required only a very small amount of anesthetic. I had no bleeding at the operative site and my major surgical procedure that normally takes no less than 4 hours, took only 2. I had virtually no discomfort and healed much faster than expected. Hypnosis really works! “

“I worked with Carrie Ann for the birth of my baby. Labor is the most relaxed I have been in my life! I feel my daughter made her own way into the world and that I just stood back and watched her do it. Hypnosis is amazing! I can’t wait to use it again!”
