  1. Hypnodog Princess and her owner Krystyna appeared on Loose Women this week talking about their rise to fame after appearing on Britain’s Got Talent and how they are waiting with baited breath to see how far they can get in the competition and if they can make it even further in the quest to appear at the royal variety show.

    Hosts Andrea Maclean and Nadia Sawalha knelt down in front of Princess whilst looking in her eyes before Kystyna helped them to relax. The pressures of live TV may well have affected the poor dogs performance. Whilst we watched them we heard the music from the Jungle Book “Trust in Me” which was quite amusing if you remember how it was used by the hypnotic snake whose eyes span around. It was interesting because Nadia was convinced to be Janet Street Porter and it didn’t work for her, whilst Andrea was convinced that dogs should have the same rights as humans.

    Krystyna explained that Princess had learned that if she stares at people she gets a treat, although she admitted that perhaps she wasn’t actually hypnotising them.

    What do you think of this? Were they really hypnotised? Watch the video for yourself and let me know,

  2. Hypnosis can ease the Chronic Pain of Arthritis

    When you suffer from arthritis you need to learn all about pain management. This means that it has long been a part of the daily life of arthritis patients. Medication can really help, but often in the long tern it becomes less effective and stress can also rear its head.

    Hypnosis for pain management is a very effective way to supplement the help given by your GP or other Doctor.    depression woman

    Academic study about hypnosis for pain management

    According to University of Washington School of Medicine's clinical professor of anaesthesiology and rehabilitation, Joseph Barber, PhD, uses hypnosis as a treatment for pain caused by arthritis. 

    "A 73-year old patient who suffered from severe pain caused by knee osteoarthritis could not tolerate the use of anti-inflammatory drugs. However, with just three hypnosis treatments, the grandmother experienced a decrease in her knee pain,"  

    The researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine conducted an analysis of 18 studies of hypnosis that involved more than 900 patients. It was found that 75 percent of the subjects experienced pain relief. 

    By teaching you how to control that pain with hypnotherapy I can help you to focus on alleviating the physical and emotional problems that can stop you living the life that you want to.

    In fact brain imaging has revealed that certain hypnotic suggestions decrease some brain area activities that are associated with  the emotional responses towards pain.  

    When working with any person who suffers chronic pain it is of course important to make sure that you have seen your doctor first. Then I can even teach you how to do for yourself it using certain techniques.
