Although most people have a concept of what hypnosis/hypnotherapy is. There are many misconceptions about it. The reality is much less ‘dramatic’ than what the media portrays. In hypnosis a partnership is entered into between a client and Hypnotherapist, in which the client agrees to allow themselves to relax into a state of deeper conscious. The Hypnotherapist is only the GUIDE on the journey, the client is the true hypnotist. If a client refuses to be hypnotized or defies the attempts, they are not fulfilling their part of the agreement and thus will not enter into a true hypnotic state.
Hypnosis is an amazing tool that can be used in many areas as alternative care. Because habit breaking/developing changes are much easier to instill on a deeper conscious level, Hypnosis offers a wonderful tool for these areas. Hypnosis can also be a great asset for individuals looking to ‘search’ their mind for what may seem like lost memories, or even past lives. It is often a wonderful benefit for individuals who have had a difficult time facing an area in their past or getting past a trauma, as the mind has a wonderful way of protecting us. In this way hypnosis can be used, by a competent Hypnotherapist, to get to the source of an issue while keeping a level of protection for the client.
GUIDED IMAGERY/GUIDED MEDITATION Guided Imagery / Guided Meditation is a tool used to help guide individuals to a relaxed state. There are many ways this tool can be used. Often scripted, a practitioner will guide a client or group of clients through one if not several techniques that encourage relaxation. This may be the only goal of a guided meditation, or a Practitioner may use it for a variety of other options such as encouraging a better learning state, visual and color therapies, or one of many other options.
Guided Imagery / Guided Meditation is a tool frequently used to help achieve relaxation and comfort. It is used both in individual situations as well as with groups. Please review my Hypnosis & Guided meditation CD’s to find one right for you and your situation!
Reiki is a energy healing art that originated in Japan. The word Reiki is Japanese in origin as well. Rei means ‘universal’ and Ki means ‘life force energy’ (Chi - in Chinese, Prana - in Indian, Light - in other Spiritual Circles).
In Reiki the energy flows from a higher source, through the practitioner's hands, passing into the client. This can be a hands on or off technique, meaning the Practitioner may or may not lay hands directly on their client - it is not necessary, but often a choice made by the individual Practitioner.
Reiki II Practitioners can also pass energy using distant healing. By focusing on a client who is in need of a healing in another area. Or a Practitioner may use a material item such as a stuffed toy, pillow or candle to share energy with others.
THOUGHT FIELD THERAPY
Thought Field Therapy (TFT) - Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) - Meridian Point Therapy (MPT) All Meridian Therapies are based on a foundation laid out by Roger Callahan in developing TFT. These skills are one of the fastest and most efficient ways for the help of immediate release, and reduction of many symptoms and issues.
Using techniques and Patterns relating to Meridian Points, a Practitioner can offer clients a simple yet highly effective tool for relief of symptoms in many areas of emotional and physical distress. As a TFT / Meridian Point therapist, I often teach my clients certain techniques in which they can be empowered to help themselves in situations where they need it most. When working on a specific concern, I use several different testing techniques to help a client get the best results.
