Posted by on 3:53 am in Blog | 0 comments

Hypnotherapy for Medical Conditions Despite the misrepresentations of hypnotherapy in popular culture, there are scientific studies that point to its numerous benefits. The empirical data puts a strong case for hypnotherapy and recommends it for patients with various conditions. Here are some medical conditions that hypnotherapy can address. Cancer While hypnotherapy cannot cure cancer, it can be of great benefit in helping patients deal with the symptoms. It can help minimize nausea especially for those undergoing chemotherapy. It can significantly minimize the perception of fatigue or post-surgical pain. One clinical study done on 200 patients showed that those in the hypnosis group we able to save hundreds of dollars in managing post-surgical pain and complications. Sleep Disorders Hypnotherapy can also be beneficial to patients struggling with sleep disorders. Scientific studies have shown that hypnotherapy can cure cases of chronic and acute insomnia giving the patient the power to relax and fall asleep. It also helps to address other issues associated with sleep disorders such as nightmares, sleepwalking, and bedwetting. Depression and Post Trauma Anxiety People with depression may struggle to find a cure for the distress they experience due to the condition. One way to manage moderate to severe depression is to use medication. Most of the medication available can lead to tolerance or dependency. Hypnotherapy can help patients with depression manage their symptoms. With the right suggestions, you can release past trauma and emotions that you had locked deep in your subconscious and replace them with positivity. This way it addresses the causes of depression and post-trauma anxiety at a deeper fundamental level. When in a hypnotic state you’ll need to send suggestions that are clearly defined in order for it to be effective. Over the years hypnotherapy methods have been refined and perfected. Dr. John McGrail is one of the experts on hypnotherapy who has helped patients achieve a more fulfilling...

Get the Picture?

Posted by on 8:23 pm in Blog | 0 comments

Get the Picture? A lot of people are curious about how I do what I do– helping people bring change into their lives or what I call changing your reality; creating the life or reality you want instead of settling for the one you think you’re stuck with.In truth, making life changes–big or small–is a simple process, and it always, always requires changing the way our mind is working. Everything in our reality, good or bad happy or sad, positive or negative begins in the mind. Hypnotherapy and my Synthesis process all help to make those mind changes happen as quickly as possible, but as powerful as all the tools and methods may be, what MUST precede all that is having a clear understanding or “picture” of what it is you’re wanting. This notion may seem ridiculously obvious, and you’d be amazed at how many clients come to see me without that vital piece of the puzzle. They’re often not even aware of it until I ask them (in their first session) something like, “What do you want to accomplish through our work together?” They might answer with something like, “I want to be happier, or more successful,” or “I want to feel worthy of having ________.”  I then ask, “Well what does that mean to you, how will you know when you get there?” Quite often, the response to that question is a puzzled look sometimes combined with, “I don’t really know.” BUMMER– If you don’t know exactly what you want, how are you going to create it? And that’s what this episode is all about; how to begin the process of change, any change. It must and always begins with creating a very clear image or picture of what it is you want. How are you are going to look, what will it feel like, and how will you know when you get “it” whatever your “it” is. Enjoy! Please send in your your questions and comments and I will get to as many as I can. As always, if it’s a personal question you will receive a personal, and confidential response. And thanks in advance for sharing this with your...

Posted by on 4:17 am in Blog | 0 comments

Turn Your Worries Off, Turn Your Life On Worrying is only a waste of time, to begin with. It does not accomplish anything and your compounding thoughts just become a hindrance that stops you from living a full life. Sometimes these unfounded speculations do not even come true forcing you to think of something deeper and far worst. The vicious cycle continues on and on that, it becomes a daily part of your existence. If you want to get out of the habit, Dr. John McGrail can help you get a new perspective on life. His effective hypnotherapy, life, and performance coaching programs can be a life-changing experience that can force you out of the destructive habit.

The Tides of Emotion

Posted by on 1:15 am in Blog | 0 comments

The Tides of Emotion There is nothing that feels worse than to suddenly find yourself in the muck and mire of a really bad mood and not even know where it came from or worse, when it will leave. I call these moments emotional low tides, cause it’s just like low tide at the beach; smelly, mucky, and well, just not much fun. For people like you who have learned to seek and live in a positive energy, letting life be fun, (Rule #1) it’s even more distressing. You find yourself asking, What the heck is going on here, and your whole world gets dark. Everything seems to go sideways; at work, at school, at play– hell, who wants to play? “I feel like **%&! so leave me alone!” Yuck! You just can’t seem to get our of your own way. We’ve all been there many times and truthfully we all know we will again–it’s inevitable that our emotions will cycle, just like the tides at the beach go out and come back in. The hard part is that while we know when the tides at the shore will shift and we can plan for it, you don’t know when or how your emotional tides will turn. It’s often a waiting game. But does it have to be? The answer is, NO! There is a lot you  can do to switch the tides of emotion back to where you want them to be, flush, full and abundant, like high tide at the beach. And that’s what this episode is all about. I hope you enjoy it and I promise this technique works really well. It’s been tried and tested by yours truly many, many times. Click on the link below As always, I welcome your questions and comments; I will get to as many as I can, and, as always if it’s a personal question you will receive a personal confidential response.Thanks for sharing this with the people in your life. This technique can help us all stay in “high tide” more often and for longer periods....

One Last Cigarette? Who Are You Kidding?

Posted by on 5:41 am in Blog | 0 comments

One Last Cigarette? Who Are You Kidding? In the history of this world, there hasn’t been one positive report on cigarettes. They are a health hazard, whichever way you look at them. Millions of people indulge in this harmful practice, knowing full well the dangers of it, but we all know how addictive cigarettes are. Articles have been published, solely talking about the vice and why you should kick it to the curb. If you need one last gloomy reminder, here are three solid points. Cancer Will Catch Up With You Do you know that nearly one in every 5 deaths in the US is associated with smoking? Imagine that this vice accounts for 480,000 deaths annually, either directly or indirectly. That makes you a potential statistic if you are a smoker. Come-on now, there are better ways to leave this world, no? You And Funk Will Be Buddies For Life Let’s agree on this one thing here; cigarette smoke is not perfumery. No way! The worst thing is that it clings onto your clothes and breath like the plague so that you cannot deny that you have been puffing. Regardless of the brand, you can count on that tobacco funk. Why now would you want to walk around in your designer suit smelling awful? Preterm If you are a mommy-to-be, you are endangering the life of your child. Your bad habit may prevent them from ever seeing the light of day. Even the thought of it makes me sad. Quitting just after falling pregnant will increase the chances of your baby’s survival. You Only Need A Stellar Resolve Thousands of people try to quit and fail, but that does not doom you from success. Have you tried hypnotherapy? We will admit that quitting a habit that you have acquired and followed up for years will be tricky, but what do you lose from...

Making Choices That Will Make You Happy

Posted by on 2:00 am in Blog | 0 comments

Making Choices That Will Make You Happy Every year, we wake up to new inventions. New studies are conducted that bring some dull information such as a reducing life expectancy, or we get to learn new methods of communication that tear us even further away from each other. While some innovations are meant to make work easier or to make us more productive, they may also lead to the increasing stress on society. How do you deal with this stress? Whatever You Put Out Into The Universe… The universe does really pay you back. At times, it is easy to play the victim; to ask why things always happen to you. All of us (or most of us, at least ) have been here before, thinking that we are solely victims of things beyond us. Well, in reality, only you can dictate the energies around you. If you send out negativity, it will cling to you, and you will find yourself battling with it every day. Sadly, most people do not know how to get a negative stream of thought out of the way, as it can be quite stubborn. Accepting The Process Have you ever made a decision that didn’t go well with you? You failed to get the expected results, and it made you feel awful with yourself. Well, you would be surprised at how many people fight themselves every day. As long as you are human, you’re bound to make mistakes; several of them. While it is human and quite healthy to beat yourself up for them, it is wise to know when to let go and to move on. Timing is everything. Patience Is Key Several things in your life will take a long time before they can materialize. Don’t be too hard on you if you have only been eating clean and working out for a month but hasn’t seen the results yet. It will take a while, but the results will be worth the wait. The same applies to the changes you are planning to make. Personal Evaluation Nothing beats sitting down with someone who judges not but understands you perfectly. Dr. John McGrail is that person. He gives you a personal assessment that will help you understand yourself...

Posted by on 7:55 pm in Blog, Videos | 0 comments

Are you tired of letting your worries get the best of you? Well enough is enough! Here’s a solution that’s fun, effective and free, and it just might change your life in a very powerful way. The new philosophy is an activity invented many years ago in a little pub in West Haven Connecticut, and it turned out to be one of the best ideas I ever had; long before I was doing what I do today. Everyone I know who has tried this loves it; it’s like a game you play with a few well chosen friends, way better than Pokemon Go, and it really will help you change the way you think and behave. You will feel more optimistic, in control, more positive and all that leads to a very powerfully created reality. If Rule #1 is Life is Supposed to be Fun, here’s a great way to abide by that...
