what is hypnosis?
Using the power of your mind for beautiful change.
Hypnosis is a natural yet altered state of mind that allows a person to relax in order to focus on and receive positive suggestions for positive change. Contrary to popular belief, it's not a state of sleep. It's actually a light trance state—one in which you can hear everything that's going on around you.
GUIDING POSITIVE CHANGE
"I suffered back pain after I had my baby ten years ago and had four back surgeries. On a scale of 0 to 10, my pain level was an average of 5 and at times got as bad as an 8. After taking pain medications that kept me in a fog for about 8 years, I stopped. After one hypnosis session with Jeanne and a week of listening to my hypnosis recordings, pain was not on the forefront of all my thoughts. During the second session, Jeanne had me imagine a healing space to dial down the pain. During that session my pain level went down to a zero, and throughout the week, as I listened to my hypnosis recordings, my back pain became a manageable 2. At that point I began to see that I was in control of my pain. Until then, I never thought that was possible. I had lost hope for any future and thought I would never be able to do anything I loved doing. I thought my whole life would have to center around pain. After the second week of listening to my hypnosis recordings, I could control the pain, and I felt liberated. Suddenly my future opened up. I began to realize that having gotten my back pain under control, I now had the tools to work on my fibromyalgia pain. I feel I now have my life back again."
