Hypnosis For Pain Management and Chronic Disease Can Help You!

There is nothing more debilitating than a life filled with pain and discomfort. It wears you down and can break you physically, mentally and emotionally.  Acute pain is our body’s way of telling us we are being damaged and we need to take action, without this kind of pain, our very survival would be threatened.

It’s when pain becomes chronic that it serves no useful purpose, when we have nothing to learn from its message, that we need a way to manage it. Sometimes medication can only provide temporary relief and for some long term sufferers they cannot stay on powerful anti-pain medication indefinitely as it can cause its own damage; and can become addictive. This is where hypnosis for pain control and chronic disease management can really offer you a practical solution so that you can feel more comfortable and regain control of your life.

Testimonials
“Your pain management hypnotherapy has provided me with great comfort. I have been seeing you and using my audio recording for a number of weeks now and it really has made a tremendous difference to my life. This is the first time I have experienced hypnosis and I am very impressed.”  Ms. Stewart – NJ

“Before going in for hypnosis I was extremely nervous as I had never been hypnotized before and was worried It would not work or I would do something wrong. However, during the 1st session, I was completely relaxed and my worries were gone. Michelle is very patient, understanding, empathetic, and listens to any worries you may have. She puts you at ease and you leave the session feeling great. I trust Michelle 100%” Mrs. Kingston - NJ

“Hi, Michelle, I just wanted to write and tell you that something great has happened because of your work with me. As you know, I have been dealing with this diagnosis of cancer for over a year now. After that first session with you something amazing had changed. I became stronger!! I had a renewed spirit to “fight”. After 6 sessions now the pain has lessened and I am able to deal with it better. I believe I will move forward towards my greater health. Please continue to do this excellent work for others…you must have some magic. You are a valuable part of a healing team.”  Silvia, NJ

If you do decide to try hypnosis, you can schedule an appointment with me, or you may also consider trying an mp3 (below) which focuses on pain reduction. Keep in mind that while MP3 recordings may be VERY helpful, they will not be tailored to your specific needs which is one of the benefits of working with a skilled practitioner in person.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also called "winter depression" - is considered a subtype of depression or bipolar disorder. While not officially in the category of mental illness listed by the American Psychiatric Associations, it is estimated to affect 10 million Americans - mostly women. Another 25 million Americans may have a mild form of SAD, sometimes called the "winter blues" or "winter blahs". The risk of winter depression increases the further from the equator a person lives.
According to the Mayo Clinic, most people who have seasonal affective disorder have symptoms that start in the fall and continue into the winter months. Less often, people suffer from seasonal affective disorder that causes depression in the spring and into the summer months. People who work at night or who work long hours in buildings with few windows can experience SAD year-round. Other people may experience a bout of SAD during extended periods of overcast weather.
Seasonal affective disorder causes depression, lethargy, irritability and a desire to avoid social situations. It can also create an urge to overeat, particularly carbohydrates and junk food.
Seasonal affective disorder is also linked with a chemical imbalance that results from the decrease of light in daylight hours. Melatonin, a brain chemical that plays a role in determining mood, is produced in greater quantities when it is dark outside. This means that more melatonin is produced during the fall and winter. An increase in this hormone can cause symptoms of sleepiness, lethargy and depression, which makes it more difficult for the body to carry out daily tasks that require lots of energy and activity.
While these feelings of mild malaise come and go easily for some, each winter signifies a new cycle of depression for others.
Freedom from Seasonal Affective Disorder CDs ares designed to bring sunshine into your life, brighten up your mood, and ease the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Hypnosis Anchors


Anchoring is used in our lives in a multitude of ways, even though you may have never heard the term before. Anchors are the "triggers" and "buttons that get pushed" that can either make your moment instantly positive and  put a smile on your face; or ruin our day in a flash by putting us in a negative emotional state.

If you know about them and how to set them, anchors can also be used purposefully as a powerful tool for managing our emotional states and influencing our behaviors and decisions in a positive ways. With practice and knowledge of anchors we can change our state of being instead of allowing our state to change us. 

You actually have the power to automatically switch your mind to a positive state when you want to and are willing to. The human brain is capable of that. It is this process that we call "anchoring". It this process, through Hypnosis, where you will make positive and powerful changes in your life. 

What Is An Anchor?

There are different types of anchors. First, a good definition of an anchor is a stimulus or behavior that is associated with a particular state of mind or mood. For example, if every time you smelled bread baking you associated it with a positive memory of being loved by your family; it is this smell that then brings you immediately into a positive state of being.  Science (Ivan Pavlov is a great example) has proven that associations can trigger feelings and behaviors without someone making a conscious effort. That means that you can improve or change your state of mind based on positive associations. These positive associations can be seeded into your subconscious mind during Hypnosis. Then consciously you can use tangible anchors to bring you forward to your desired goals; bringing you both success and happiness. 

Visual Anchors

Visual anchors are among the most common. We have been making associations ever since childhood. A good example of visual anchors is in marketing and advertising. Think about when you were a child, before you could read, you knew the McDonalds arches when you saw them. Today, you see the blue box with the white letter f and know that references Facebook. We make associations every day based on color, appearance, texture and faces. Think about that grouchy boss or coworker you have had in the past, what do you feel when you see this persons face? Now simply think about this person and you will understand "anchoring". It puts you in a negative state of mind, just by the mere association. There are positive and negative visual anchors. Another great example, if we see the envelope that our paycheck arrives in, our state of mind turns to a positive. 

Auditory Anchors

An auditory anchor is a stimulus that is a sound or sounds neurologically linked to a state of mind. Again it can be a positive or negative state, but is linked with a sound. What do you feel when you hear the alarm clock. Most people, not all, feel negative. That is because there is a negative state associated with that particular sound. 

Auditory anchors can also be positive, think about your favorite movie and the sound track that goes along with it. It may be that when you hear that particular song or music you feel refreshed, romantic or motivated. That is because that particular song or music is associated with a positive action or behavior that was carried out in that movie. A positive action or behavior that you were attracted to.

Kinesthetic Anchors

A kinesthetic anchor is one that is a movement, touch or physical action that associates a particular state of mind or wanted behavior. This can best be explained with the touches, holding or hugging of a loved one. When that person touches you it makes you feel special and loved. This is because you have associated touch with the love and affection of that person which sparks a positive emotional state.

You can develop kinesthetic anchors on your own. At MichelleA Leonard Hypnosis I use Ear seeds; this is called Auricular Therapy. Combined with Hypnosis this kinesthetic anchor will bring your hypnosis experience and your results to new levels of success. 

Olfactory Anchoring
The sense of smell is the only sensory channel that is wired directly into the amygdala - the part of the brain responsible for "tagging" anchors with emotional states.  Smells can be very powerful anchors. Aromatherapy is very helpful in setting anchors for states you want to experience or behaviors you want to follow through on. 

All Hypnosis experiences at Michelle A Leonard Hypnosis are anchored with essential oils. Essential oils are paired with your Hypnosis script based on the results and goals you desire. 

Using Anchors In Life

Anchors are a part of everyday life. Think about products and advertisements on television, radio and on the internet. The leading manufacturers like Nike and Reebok spend millions on leading positive role models and associations in consumer's minds. This is well worth the money for the manufactures because consumers make positive associations and simply must have the product. They feel because someone that is so positive has the product it must be good. This is the reason that there is billions of dollars in advertisements spent every year.

After a session of Hypnosis with Michelle A Leonard Hypnosis you will leave with Tangible life tools. These Anchors will aid your conscious mind in communicating with and utilizing the suggest information that was subconsciously planted. 

There are key factors when using anchors and if you can learn how to use them you will be able to control your state of mind. This can set the stage for success, energy and a multitude of other positives in your life.

Intensity: The intensity of the experience can control how fast the anchor makes the associations. If the experience is extremely intense, it may be that the association is strong after only one occurrence. On the other hand, if the experience is less intense, it may take several times to associate the state with the experience.

Timing: The most effective time for the association of the anchor is at the peak of the experience. As the intensity of the experience lessens, so does the association. If you can maintain this intensity for a longer period of time, it is more likely the anchor will be established.

Uniqueness: It is best to find an anchor that is unique to the experience. Individuals have the ability to use any three of the types of anchors independently or all together. The key here is to ensure that the anchors are used together and at the same time. Make sure that the anchor is associated only with that specific experience, and is not common to other experiences.

Repetition: Practice makes perfect! Just like anything else, replicating the experience will achieve the anchor permanently. If you are attempting to build an anchor, you may have to replicate it a time or two exactly. If it is a vision or touch, it needs to be exact to build in your mind.

At Michelle A Leonard Hypnosis your session is uniquely individually designed with tangible anchors to elevate success rates. Each private hypnosis experience is combined with Neuro-linguistic programming, Olfactory Anchoring, and Auricular Therapy. This is innovative care, unique only to the advanced session available Michelle A Leonard Hypnosis.  We are empowering you with life tools to help you to move forward to your desired goals. 

Your thoughts will create your world. I am here to support your journey and see you succeed.
