Clinical Hypnosis

Clinical Hypnosis is a treatment tool that has been approved by the American Medical Association since 1958. Clinical hypnosis is a wonderful state of deep relaxation in which the individual becomes highly responsive to positive suggestions. Hypnosis is a rapid and effective way of programming new habits and beliefs into the subconscious mind, empowering the individual to bring about desired changes in thoughts, feelings and behavior. Clinical hypnosis can be effective for accomplishing a variety of goals such as relief from stress and anger, weight loss, smoking cessation, improving self-esteem, and pain management, and it can aid in the alleviation of symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Dr. Masi is a certified hypnotherapist and discusses with his clients the integration of clinical hypnosis into their care plans when it is deemed as being a helpful adjunct in alleviating painful emotions such as prolonged sadness, intense fear/panic and anger.  After careful explanation of how clinical hypnosis can help resolve the specific problem(s) and with client consent, hypnotherapy sessions are conducted which the client can record to use at home for ongoing support and reinforcement.

In some situations, clients might request hypnosis alone for issues such as smoking cessation, weight loss, pain management and improved job/school performance. Before engaging in hypnotherapy for such situations, Dr. Masi conducts an initial session to ensure that it is a viable option and establishes the number of sessions needed to complete the goal.

Below is a link to Dr. Masi’s “hypnosis session for stress reduction.” Do not listen ‘to the recording while driving or while engaged in other activities. Make sure you are in a secure, comfortable place where you will not be interrupted for 30 minutes. Turn off your cell phone and sit comfortably in a chair, or you can recline on a couch.  During the recording simply listen to the sound of my voice and don’t feel like you must do anything.  All of the helpful suggestions are directly given; there are no subliminal messages in the session.
