I am a medical hypnotist in Santa Cruz, CA. My approach to disease, trauma, and any uncomfortable emotion or symptom is not just to get rid of them. Eliminating the symptom and discomforts does not resolve them. Only by (1) addressing our habits, history (including adverse childhood experiences – ACE), unresolved emotions, and limiting beliefs; and (2) then rewriting the stories about who we think we are, do we heal (mentally, physically, and spiritually).
This approach does not try to “fix” the apparent problem (or 20 problems) in the client’s life. Instead, we want to discover the theme present in the problem (common to this and many other issues). The goal is then to develop the person in that life theme. Then they can address this problem and most other issues they face with ease. – excerpt from Medical Hypnotherapy Training
Most of my clients who come looking for medical hypnosis here in Santa Cruz or online do not come thinking that, dealing with their IBS, arthritis, or cancer will mean working on anxiety, chronic stress, relationship conflicts, and boundaries. When they do begin the work though, they realize just how much their mindsets, emotions, and trauma is affecting their bodies.
How Do I Address Disease and Emotions?
(1) discover what is behind the body’s ill responses
(2) transforming the underlying problem
(3) build robust coping and relational skills and cultivate strengths in order to face future issues and problems more effectively.
