Hypnosis Mindset Smoking

Become a Non-Smoker

YOU KNOW IT’S TIME TO QUIT 

 You’re tired of the cost, smell, embarrassment, hiding your habit, finding a place to smoke, coughing, choking and not being able to breathe, just from walking up the stairs.    Maybe your health has suffered.  Maybe the health of others you love have suffered.  Maybe you are finally disgusted with this senseless and unhealthy habit.   

Whatever the reason, you know you are READY TO QUIT.   What will you do on breaks at work?  FINALLY PURSUE A HEALTHIER LIFE.  YOU WILL KEEP DEADLY POISON OUT OF YOUR BODY…AND OUT OF THE BODY OF LOVED ONES.  YOU WILL BREATHE EASIER, ENJOY FOOD MORE AND SAVE MONEY….and likely, live a longer, healthier life to enjoy with loved ones. 

Second Hand Smoke and YOU 

When asked why clients want to quit smoking, the vast majority of them want to be around for future events and for beloved children and grandchildren.   They also say they are tired of it and tired of feeling unhealthy.   Think of all the people you are around, especially children , that have either breathed in the secondhand smoke, been in a room or closed car with you or have just watched your habit over and over until it feels familiar.  If there is anyone that looks up to you, is the smoking habit something that you want them to be affected by…or emulate? 

Does Hypnosis Work to Quit Smoking? 

Yes, but you will receive optimum results using hypnosis to quit smoking with a positive, committed attitude and the sincere desire to stop smoking. It is important to believe it is possible to quit smoking and really want to achieve it.  If a person has this mindset, hypnosis is very effective.  Those who are serious about quitting tend to do the things recommended in our sessions.  The things I recommend are changing habits and listening to the recording I provide as reinforcement.  Those who are not serious, don’t do anything.  They make no changes and they don’t listen to the hypnotic recording.   You must come with a serious desire to quit the smoking habit!   You certainly can purchase a membership to a gym, but if you don’t go, then nothing will change. 

Stopping smoking is a two part challenge. The first part is to deal with the withdrawal symptoms, which some people may experience.   Hypnosis is highly effective for lessening or eradicating the withdrawal symptoms when you quit smoking. 

The second part, which may be a bigger challenge for many people, is dealing with the triggers for smoking.  Examples of the psychological challenges or triggers are if a person automatically lights up a cigarette when they drink a cup of coffee, while driving, drinking or after eating.   They may not be aware of why they do this.  Attaching their smoking habit to another daily habit is an unconscious behavior, produced by the subconscious mind that relates a certain activity strongly with smoking.  In hypnosis, we speak directly to the subconscious mind, where all habits reside.  We give your subconscious mind suggestions to act in new ways that support your desire to be a healthy, non-smoker. 

My Non-Smoker Program 

My program consists of a minimum of TWO sessions.  During the first session, we discuss your reason for quitting, why you smoke and smoking facts.  You commit to quitting and agree to pursue this goal to become a non-smoker for life. During this session, you bring your cigarettes and smoking paraphernalia to discard.  

Session Two is a reinforcement session, where you can discuss any challenges, if any.  It is solution and focus-oriented, reinforcing your commitment to the goal of a new identity as a non-smoker. 

Two Session Non-Smoker Program ONLY $270

Pain Mangement Trigeminal Neuralgia

Chronic Pain Story

“It saved my life,” he said. I knew I had to help more of the general public and professionals know about hypnosis for pain management.

He was now pain-free. He said he doesn’t even really remember the pain. Not remember the pain? I remembered it. I remember watching him lose more than 35 pounds in a month. I remember him being in so much pain that he couldn’t eat dinner. I remember making him shakes that he barely could choke down. I remember him not being able to talk from the intense pain.

I also remembered the over medication and the side effects. I recall staying home with him and not wanting him to go to work because he was acting so strangely. He was shaky, looked frail and unstable. He had hives and a cough. I remember fighting with the neurologist who was on vacation and couldn’t be bothered to call us back and just gave him more medication. That doctor actually refused to see my husband because of a review I left online. But the medication he was on had to be monitored by a doctor! What do you do with that?

I recalled the sinus operation he had that he didn’t need. I remember the pain that didn’t go away, but worsened after the operation. I remember the countless office visits that didn’t help. I remember going to the dentist, who said it was nothing and it should resolve itself.

All of this and dealing with the insurance company was so stressful!

Through all of these visits, we had to wait weeks before we could be seen by the primary care physician before we could be referred back to another specialist. Sometimes he might have a full calendar or be on vacation. And the person we were referred to often had a full calendar. There were months and months and months of visiting doctors. And testing.

And etched into my mind was the first time he winced from the pain. I know where we were and what we were doing. At the time I never could imagine what would happen.

I’m not bashing medicine or medical doctors. Quite the contrary. I have great respect for the neurosurgeon and team that helped my husband become pain free. You have to get the right diagnosis and the right doctor.

Most people and some doctors never even heard of Trigeminal Neuralgia. It was challenging to find the right doctor to help him. But we ultimately found the right medical team to resolve his medical problem.

After the overmedication fiasco, we were referred to an excellent neurologist in our local area who immediately contacted the neurosurgeon for my husband after he spoke with him the first time. He said he had a feeling that he was an excellent candidate for it and that it would resolve his problem.

In just a few days, we spoke with the neurosurgeon on a video call. He scheduled the surgery in Philadelphia for three days after the call. On Friday we went for pre surgical testing. On Monday he had the five and a half hour operation that changed his life. And mine. Some people might have been upset by the arrangements that had to be made in such a short period of time. But both of us were willing to do whatever it took to get him relief.

Upon visiting the first neurologist, we finally got a diagnosis of Trigeminal Neuralgia. But the relief didn’t come until more than six months later. Nicknamed the suicide disease, TN is no joke. Chronic pain is no joke….for those who are suffering and for the loved ones watching. I knew when we spoke about it after the fact that he was right. Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis really did save his life.

It gave him the time and relief to find the help he needed!

This is a true story or synopsis of the impact that hypnosis and self-hypnosis had on my husband when it came to chronic pain. -Tina Pineiro

Stress

Stress Management

Stress! We all have it! You can’t eliminate stress from your life totally. You can reduce stress and learn techniques to help you cope and react differently to the stress that comes your way.

Stressful situations create the “fight or flight” response. You feel tired emotionally, physically and mentally. Did you know there was a relaxation response? It is a natural method of engaging the parasympathetic nervous system to reverse the effects of stress. Our individual and group sessions help you to use techniques to manage your stress, as well as eliciting the opposite of the fight or flight response.

When stress is unrelenting, eventually the body’s immune system can break down. Before your body feels the effects of stress, improve how you deal with it.

The collaborative, professional relationship between a stress management coach and our clients addresses why stress happens, how it affects you, how learning new stress control approaches, how to utilize these stress reduction methods, and how to craft a comprehensive and unified customized stress management program that suits your needs

Hypnosis Pain Mangement

Pain Management

It has been proven scientifically that there is a mind/body connection. Quite often hypnosis can be helpful for pain management.

This service requires a doctor’s approval and written consent saying that there are no contraindications. Hypnosis is not used as a substitute for good medical care. It is offered as a complement to help you manage.

How Pain Management Hypnosis Helps

Hypnosis can help you to be in control of the pain. Hypnosis can help you by decreasing the stress caused by the chronic pain, helping you to decrease the pain level and have more control,

About the Mind/Body Connection

The mind/body connection is powerful. Our brain controls all of our body functions including pain. But it’s not just your imagination! Our brain sends out useful pain messages when there is a threat. If you touched something hot, your brain would send a pain message to let you know to move your hand.

Hypnosis vs. Self-Hypnosis

You can choose to work with a hypnotist or have the hypnotist teach you to use self-hypnosis. When you work with a hypnotist, especially the first time, you understand the process and can ask questions for clarification. The hypnotist is trained to guide you with their words and then give you suggestions for managing your pain and relieving your stress.

Self-hypnosis lets you be the guide. Especially when it comes to managing pain, you get better as you learn to use your mind to achieve the results you want. It is so important to learn and use this skill. You feel so empowered when you are able to control the outcome.

Pain and Stress

Chronic pain can leave people to feel vulnerable and desperate. As they seek answers, each time they fail to find relief, their feelings of helplessness, stress and worry grow alongside the pain.

pain management hypnosis

If you are experiencing chronic pain and you haven’t gotten any relief, you can learn self-hypnosis and decrease your stress levels related to your pain. We can show you how during your appointment and you can have a proven strategy for pain.

Our Pain Management Hypnosis appointments require your doctor’s approval. In order for us to schedule your appointment, you will need a note indicating that there are no contraindications.

Call (570) 352 3048 for information or to schedule your hypnosis appointment.

Pain Mangement Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Most people have never even heard of Trigeminal Neuralgia. I have because my husband literally suffered with it. It took quite a while and quite a few doctor visits to get the diagnosis. Even when we did, the first neurologist we saw really wasn’t helpful in treating him or getting him the additional help he needed.

Hypnosis & TN

If it were not for hypnosis, I don’t know exactly where he would be today. I wish I could say it was an exaggeration. The intense pain, the low or no quality of life, the constant doctor scheduling and visits (and waiting in between), multiple prescriptions and changes in medication and ultimately being unable to eat….hypnosis is the only thing that regularly brought him some relief. With a level ten (10) pain, he could usually get it down low to a 2. Sometimes it was even a zero. We are so grateful he understood the role hypnosis and self-hypnosis could play in his pain management.

Today after an operation to correct his problem, he is pain free. He says he no longer remembers the pain. Here’s the best part. He made it through the hard part and got to the relief! You can too! You can use hypnosis and self-hypnosis to find some relief until you are able to resolve the medical issue!

Call (570) 352 3048. We get it!

Loved Ones of TN Sufferers

There are a range of emotions that come with being the supportive person or persons of someone diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. In addition to watching him or her suffer and not being able to help, you have added responsibilities. I know you want to support your loved one. Of course, the first thing is getting them the right medical care. But in between that, I suggest you learn self-hypnosis with your loved one. It will be good for you and it will be good to help them calm and learn to less the stress associated with this pain.

For those who are called to become practitioners, I offer Hypnosis training.

Confidence coaching is designed to help you raise your self image and create a positive outlook on life, starting from within. Coaching sessions will challenge your current beliefs that you have about yourself, boost your self-esteem and help you build a strong and positive self-image.

What is Confidence?

Confidence is a belief in yourself and your ability to meet life’s challenges and act accordingly. Being confident requires a realistic sense of your capabilities. You can build your confidence in many ways. Most of us have felt at one time or another that we could use more confidence.

Exercise

Exercise You Can Love: Gardening!

Are you one of those people who just can’t wait until gardening season? Are you just excited to see your vegetables and flowers adorning your yard? If you are into gardening, that alone is enough fulfillment to keep you coming back year after year.

BUT…Can gardening actually be counted as exercise? Gardening is actually really good for us in ways you probably have never thought.

Here’s an alarming statistic: People in the US spend more than 90% of their lives indoors. We are really leading disconnected, sedentary and unhealthy lives. So if gardening is a love of yours, why not enjoy yourself and get some of the benefits? Find an exercise routine that you love and the likelihood is that you will do it more often!

Some of the benefits are:

  • Strengthening your immune system: Oh, vitamin D! Outdoors in the sun you soak up vitamin D, which helps you to absorb calcium. Calcium keeps your bones strong and your immune system working!
  • Gardening reduces stress: Gardening is a well-known stress reducer for those who engage. Planting veggies or beautiful flowers not only relieves stress, but will give you stress-reducing benefits for a long time.
  • Gardening decreases the likelihood of osteoporosis: Digging, planting, weeding and engaging in repetitive tasks that require strength and stretching gives your major muscle groups a workout!
  • Gardening burns calories: Need an extra way to burn calories? Gardening! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you can burn up to 330 calories with one hour of light gardening and yard work.
  • Can reduce weight and risk of heart disease: Heavy gardening helps with weight maintenance and can reduce the risk of heart disease and other life threatening diseases. Just 30 minutes of moderate-level physical activity a few times a week can prevent and control high blood pressure.
  • It’s great for MOOD and MENTAL HEALTH: In behavioral research conducted at Rutgers University, the results showed that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods and have an immediate impact on happiness and even make for more intimate connections between individuals.

If you love to dig in the dirt, use this amazing activity to feel better and improve your health! And use it as a way to exercise that you will enjoy!
