The conference host received a referral in 2016 of an 11-year old young girl who had “all of a sudden” lost feeling from her waist down. The referral was made after multiple clinics and doctors declared that there wasn’t anything else they could do. By the third session with a contracted hypnotherapist, the young girl was able to tell her legs what she needed them to do for her. Seconds later, she was up and running through the hallways. Client testimonials reveal the power of hypnosis as an accelerated form of treatment and recovery. Attendees will hear more from a seasoned professional trained in alternative hypnosis. Since the 1700s, hypnosis has been used for mental health healing, pain management, behavioral changes and more. Since the 1990s, it has been used as an alternative to anesthesia. Hypnosis is now recognized as a therapy effective for pain, anxiety, mood disorders and behavior modification by the American Psychological Association.
