“Hypnosis has been used in Western medicine for 150 years to treat everything from anxiety to pain, from easing the nausea of chemotherapy to enhancing sports performance. Applications include treatment of phobias, panic, low self-esteem, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, stress, smoking, colitis, warts, headaches and high blood pressure.”   –Dr. Carol Ginandes, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Medical School, Harvard University Gazette

“Hypnosis is not mind control. It's a naturally occurring state of concentration; it's actually a means of enhancing your control over your mind and your body.”   –Dr. David Spiegel, Assoc. Chair of Psychiatry, Stanford University School of Medicine, Jane Pauley show, September 2004

“Hypnosis can help adult patients control other forms of pain, relieve gastrointestinal problems, stimulate weight loss, clear up skin problems, and accelerate the healing of bone fractures and surgical wounds.”
 –Consumer Reports, January 2005

“Hypnosis has gained credibility in the past five years because of research using the latest brain imaging technology. Studies show hypnosis can help treat a multitude of disorders.”   –Business Week, February 2004

“I should have done it years ago. It's amazing, I didn't even want cigarettes anymore.”   –Matt Damon describing his hypnosis to stop smoking experience to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, December 2004

“Hypnosis often is used to modify behavior and overcome phobias and bad habits – it can help you make changes that you've been unable to make otherwise.”   –National Women's Health Resource Center, November 2003

“Hypnosis can have numerous other applications besides weight loss. For instance, athletes turn to hypnosis at times to improve their performance. Clinicians have been known to use it as therapy for victims of incest, rape and physical abuse. Hypnosis can also treat sleep disorders, migraines, anxieties, ulcers, nausea and depression.”

“I don't even think about my "problem" anymore because it's gone, and as if I never had it, and I had it for two years. You are so compassionate, intelligent, and humorous. If I'd had any idea how easy it would be, I'd have come sooner - The JOY is back in my life again. Words cannot express my profound gratitude. Thanks, from the center of my heart.”   –Victoria

“I hesitated seeking a hypnotherapist because my doctor said pain medication, was the only solution. He may be right about some things, but he was wrong about that. I felt like I was becoming a drug addict, and my family was suffering too. Now I'm free from all of it, 24/7, and I thank you, Cheryl for the change in my life.”   –Gerald

“It took me a few sessions to overcome my phobia, but I seriously believed there was no cure, or way to overcome it. Cheryl is kind, thoughtful, and supportive. After the first session I felt reassured, and it was easy to continue. In a month, my panic attacks were bad memories. I know there is a scientific explanation, but to me it is magic. Thank you.”   – Marianne
