Hypnosis is a natural way of bypassing your conscious mind and reaching directly to the subconscious mind. In a state of deep relaxation, your mind accepts suggestions and releases the thoughts that hold you back, allowing you to make life changes effectively.
Clinical Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy, therefore, is the use of an altered state of consciousness, or trance state. Many like to call it the ‘zone’ state. You have experienced this state when in front of the computer, exiting the freeway exactly where you must without a second thought, or have drifted into this state watching TV, especially during commercials and up again when the show starts. This means that people are not treated with hypnosis but rather you are treated in hypnosis.
By using Guided Visualization to focus on the positive life that you truly desire you are guided to your subconscious, to edit or change a behavior or habit that may be outdated or negatively impacting your ability to live life to the fullest. It allows us to decide the major and minor outcomes in our lives, thus allowing us to live with a purpose or direction instead of by default.
In hypnosis, you “enter into” hypnosis, not “go under”. Drifting into a state of “focused concentration,” during which you’re more aware of your surroundings, the music in the background, the sound of your own breath — yet you are so comfortable that nothing really matters. This means your senses are more heightened and you allow yourself be guided through my words and voice to enter into that relaxed state – feeling serene and comfortable. All hypnotic states are characterized by a tremendously pleasant state of relaxation, where individuals allow themselves to enter so that desired, beneficial suggestions are given directly to the part of the mind known as the subconscious. That’s right, you still hear my voice and can open your eyes at anytime you so wish.
Hypnotherapy Helps With:
“Over the past 50 years, many studies have demonstrated the potential of hypnosis as an adjunctive treatment for a variety of conditions in helping patients achieve certain goals. Working with a hypnotherapist does not replace the care of medical providers, but rather compliments their work. This modality is better known as ‘augmentation’ to the Western medicine.”
The subconscious is a tremendous reservoir of our unrecognized strengths and knowledge.
When something happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behavior in response to what happened. Each time something similar happens, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. In some cases these reactions are unhealthy.
Hypnosis is a natural and effective technique for accessing the subconscious mind – the key to unleashing your potential. You are guided to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the learned behavior, finding solutions to your problems and concerns, and replace unhealthy behaviors with new, healthier ones.
In fact to be hypnotized is often a learned trait. You can teach your body and mind to go into a trance, and become more skilled as you practice self-hypnosis. Most people don’t think they are hypnotized after a session. What they do notice is that some things have changed – maybe that day, maybe the next week. Sometimes the effects are subtle and sometimes profound.
Often when the mind is really ready to make a change, it can happen quickly. Sometimes when the mind and body needs to do some healing work, it happens over time. I’ve had clients that have felt a change occur during their session. One of my clients was sure that he was not hypnotized in any of the sessions, but after only 3 sessions, his lifetime of procrastination was gone. Many are considered highly hypnotizable – meaning that they can readily experience quite dramatic changes in sensation and perception with hypnosis.
I believe there are only three things that can prevent a person from being hypnotized:
(1) Lack of knowledge
By scheduling a free consultation with me I will answer any questions you have regarding hypnotherapy in order to help empower you through this journey and ensure you understand the process of healing through hypnosis.
It is common to be fearful of the unknown and identifying the causes of our issues. However, hypnotherapy is not about focusing on the negative but rather making positive connections to our actions and implementing them into our lives. With the knowledge I provide in our free consultation you can release those fears and open yourself to the goal in mind.
You have already taken the first step by acknowledging and recognizing your need to heal. It is time to let go of any further resistance and know that there is a clear light at the in sight.
No treatment or therapy can work for you, unless you take responsibility and are a willing participant in your own wellness. Just allow the process to work for you- and it will.
Different people have all sorts of bodily responses to relaxation instructions – some feel as though their body is very heavy, whereas some can feel very light, almost as if they were floating. Mentally, people also have all sorts of responses. People typically report feeling very focused or absorbed, often effortlessly so.
Since instructions for imagery are often used, people can have very vivid imaginative experiences – many report feeling ‘as if they were there.’ I’ve had clients that fidget, move in the recliner, even go into a fetal position – while in hypnosis.
- Hypnosis is used in a variety of settings — from emergency rooms to dental offices to outpatient clinics.
- Clinical studies suggest that hypnosis may improve immune function, increase relaxation, decrease stress, and ease pain and feelings of anxiety.
- Hypnotherapy can reduce the fear and anxiety that some people feel before medical or dental procedures. For example, studies show that dental patients who underwent hypnosis had a significantly higher threshold for pain than those who were not hypnotized.
- Hypnosis may also improve recovery time and reduce anxiety and pain following surgery.
- Clinical trials on burn patients suggest that hypnosis decreases pain (enough to replace pain medication) and speeds healing.
Stage hypnotists seem to make people do strange things while hypnotized, but the truth is that these people are doing these things because they have a desire to be outrageous. If the stage hypnotists choose their subjects carefully, they will have willing participants. You will never do anything or accept any suggestion that violates your morals or values. If that was possible, all the hypnotists in the world could make you go rob the banks and bring back the money. We would be rich and rule the world. Obviously, this is not the case!

What Client’s Say
“I went to the Doctor today and my tumor marker was slightly lower than it was 3 months ago. If the cancer had indeed returned it would have been much higher (3-4 times higher based on previous occurrences). Thank you so much. I believe the work we did and I continue to do is what is keeping the cancer from returning. I’m so happy right now.”
“I have a demanding life as a professional with management responsibilities. Every other week, I look forward to being able to completely relax at Heal Within. I just go to Heal Within and feel as though I can let Liza Boubari take over. The massage is just wonderful!! Afterwards, I feel renewed. The stress that has accumulated in my body has been worked out of it in the care of Liza’s magical hands”
“Just a note to let you know how happy I am for the help you provided my son. Do you remember how depressed he was before you helped him? I still believe you were God sent to us at the time we needed it the most.”
“When I first came to you a few years ago, I was over 200 lbs and miserable. Today I stay at 140 and my life is fantastic. You also helped me to get past my son’s death and instead, to celebrate his life. For 2 years I have done just that. I sing your praises. God Bless you… don’t ever stop helping people… it is your calling.”
“October 2001, I attended your stop smoking class, and after 40 years I am still a non-smoker! My heartfelt thanks to You for a healthier Me!”
