So much of our work here at the hypnosis office is about empowering people just like you and me to use these incredibly powerful and intricate machines we call our minds. We help people to move away from the thinking that they are at the mercy of their automatic behaviors, and teach them to harness the ability to program their minds to work for them instead.


This week I’d like to share with you a story  that aired this morning on Morning Edition from NPR. This is an excellent example of how we integrate the signals in our brain to create a habitual response, and how we can use simple and easy-to-learn techniques to interrupt those signals and experience less pain.

“Quitting Smoking with Hypnosis was a Huge Success”

By Karen Gray CH, RN

“Hypnosis made quitting smoking the easiest thing I have ever done! Thank you!”

“It’s not about quitting or giving anything up. It’s about taking control of your life.”

“Thank you for your generosity in sharing your gift and making us non-smokers for the rest of our lives!”

On November 16th, Green Mountain Hypnosis held a free smoking cessation program in honor of The Great American Smoke Out. Six smokers participated, learned powerful stress reduction techniques, and became non smokers once and for all!

Mention “hypnosis” and most people automatically think of it as a way people quit smoking. It’s no surprise, as hypnosis for smoking cessation was found to be the “most effe...
