Part 1: To accelerate progress, build a better relationship with yourself

Let’s say that you learned self-hypnosis from a book or video. You’re feeling pretty relaxed each day, but nothing’s changing.

Sleep helps us in surprising ways

As a San Francisco hypnotherapist working downtown, I mainly see busy professionals. And these busy people often fall into one of two categories. 1. They’re sleep deprived and know it. 2. They’re sleep deprived and don’t know it. Most of them don’t ask for help with their sleep. But they’ll often report that they’re sleeping […]

FDA approves another new weight loss drug, Qsymia, despite red flags

In June, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved a new weight loss drug. Now in July, they’ve approved another. At this rate, we hypnotherapists won’t need to use hypnosis to help with weight loss, because there will be a pill for every situation. 🙂 Qsymia is a combination of two drugs: a stimulant and […]

In my first blog post on the health care ruling, I kept mentioning the phrase, “health teams.” In part two, we’ll discuss what that means.

Hypnosis for insomnia

For some reason, many clients don’t mention their insomnia during our initial consultation. They list their medical problems in the paperwork, but they don’t list insomnia. For these silent sufferers, I only find out after they’ve resolved their sleep issue. Have you ever seen the movie “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell? I […]
