"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" - 2 Corinthians 5:17

Transformation: Faith in Jesus Christ is dynamic, generative, and transformative. Christians are learners who grow through change. (Isa 40:28-31; Ezek 36: 26-27; or :6-7; Eph 2:5; 6: 10-20; Col 2:19; 1Pet 2:2; Rom. 12:1,2)

"Your body is the temple of the Holy are not your own." 1 Corinthians 6:19

1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.

2. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1-2)

Our mission is to provide superior quality medical hypnotherapy and wellness healthcare with a heightened and unrelenting focus on education, training and prevention.

We strive to provide resources and information to keep your mind, body and soul whole and healthy.

Medical Support Hypnotherapy is often a valuable adjunct to your doctor’s care, and can serve your healing and recovery in several ways. For example:

•Pain Management--with hypnotherapy, patients can alter their experience of pain and gain access to prolonged periods of comfort.

•Accelerated Healing-Through guided imagery, patients can direct their own healing with their minds, allowing them to have a quicker response to medical treatment, and a quicker recovery from surgery and from injuries.

•Discovering and Reconciling Emotional Roots of Illness--You may suspect that your health issue has an emotional element that needs to be addressed. The subconscious mind will often misdirect it’s energies, even though it has positive intentions for you. This misdirection can contribute to a wide variety of physical symptoms and ailments. Using a variety of hypnotherapeutic techniques, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming while in trance, it is possible to discover the emotional roots, and reconcile them within your multi-aspect psyche, allowing your medical treatments to have the greatest success.

•Increased Immune Response--Using guided imagery while in trance, the subconscious mind can strengthen the immune system to help prevent or overcome infection.

•Increased Compliance with Protocols--After positive suggestions in trance, you are more prone to succeed at following protocols of diet, stretching/exercise programs, medication, etc.

•Surgery Preparation and Recovery--Listening to customized recordings of positive suggestions about the surgery, and guided imagery of successful surgery and accelerated healing afterwards, you can have a more pleasant experience with a decreased recovery time and less chance of infection.

Studies have also shown hypnosis reduces health care costs — patients who use it stay in the hospital for shorter periods and use less medication. So why don't more people and hospitals use hypnosis? Part of the reason may be its stigma — patients and doctors may think of it more as "hocus pocus" than science. Another reason may be problems with the quality of hypnosis studies, leading doctors to be wary that it wastes time and money.All of these are misperceptions, its advocates say. "Hypnosis is sort of the good kid with the bad reputation," said Julie Schnur a clinical psychologist and assistant professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. "It’s a fantastic procedure and can be very effective and very helpful to patients, but does come with this baggage," Schnur said.
In 2007, Schnur and colleagues conducted a study of 200 breast cancer patients who needed surgery. About half underwent a 15-minute hypnosis session before their surgery; the other half talked with a psychologist about their thoughts and feelings pre-surgery.

Patients who underwent hypnosis required less sedative during the surgery, and because they were more relaxed, their surgeries lasted 10 fewer minutes on average. They experienced less pain, nausea, fatigue and emotional upset following the surgery, Schnur said. The researchers calculated the hospital could save about $770 per cancer patient by employing hypnosis before surgery." -- Rachael Rettner,

Are You Battling Cancer? There Is Hope! There is Help!

In very simple terms, cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases in which cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. Although there are many kinds of cancer, they all start because abnormal cells grow out of control. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and even death.

The National Cancer Society said that hypnosis may be useful for treating chronic pain and may be effective in reducing fear and anxiety, reducing the frequency and severity of headaches, controlling bleeding and pain, and may improve quality of life for some people with cancer.

The Elko Center for Medical Hypnotherapy and Wellness uses a four-way approach to aid cancer patients.

The first type of session helps the cancer patient address the symptoms that they are experiencing from their particular type of cancer. Many times the actual treatment can produce many negative symptoms that hypnosis can help eliminate or decrease.

The second way that hypnosis helps is by creating positive expectations of the future.

The third type of hypnosis sessions deals with the emotional issues that are present in every cancer patient. Although cancer is attacking the physical body, the mental outlook must also be dealt with.

Finally, the fourth element, and perhaps the most important, is dealing with the self-healing abilities of the client.

There are literally dozens and dozens of ways hypnosis can help. If any of the following issues apply to you, we can help:

Pain control
Sexual responses
The Family
The prognosis
Post surgery
Sleep patterns
Stages of cancer
Weight loss

Pain Management

Do you have uncontrollable pain in your life? Is it a daily reminder that you are not 100% of what you could be?

Hypnosis for Pain Management is a well-researched, proven tool to help you feel better. Hypnosis reduces stress and cortisol levels and can be used in conjunction with pain medicines, physical therapy or used alone.

Hypnosis a Powerful Tool for Pain Management

Hypnosis for Pain Management consists of a minimum of three hypnotherapy sessions that includes our home audio program for daily reinforcement, self-hypnosis, stress management, direct suggestions for comfort, coping skills, and more.

Your commitment to the process points you toward great success. Daily practice is required by you, the client. Think of hypnosis as a tool, like a lawn mower: it doesn't go outside and mow the lawn for you - it takes your effort, but it makes the task easier.

So, are you ready to lower or eliminate your pain level?

Imagine how your life would change if you were more comfortable.

A doctor's referral is required prior to the start of all pain management hypnosis. The process is very simple. Simply let us know!
