My Healing Oasis
Do you struggle with anxiety from being over-stressed? I help by desensitizing & freeing you from the emotional triggers that cause anxiety so you can relax more on your own.
Hi 👋🏼 Im Anya Mayer and I love supporting my client’s healing and personal growth. I live in Portland, Oregon and have traveled to my Oakland, CA office often before the coronavirus.
These days I stick close to home tending to my garden, my kitties and my partner. I've set up a home office where I treat clients over video and phone. I've recently returned to the office and offer in-person sessions (currently masked for safety).
I love giving my clients the relaxation and peace of mind they enjoy from our work together.
It even works with remote work because energy waves travel and the soothing voice I use for the healing work carries over video and phone.
I was called to begin exploring the benefits of hands-on healing when I was 12 years old. I grew up in a family that didn’t hug & I really needed touch but didn’t realize it.
I ended up giving my friends what I wanted to receive-kind, mindful, attentive touch. I loved seeing my friends feel supported and reassured. It is so powerful to access the power of being the difference that makes the difference!
This made me an amazing massage therapist and an even better hypnotherapist.
By combining working with the body & mind together, my clients get faster results and deeper healing!
Clients come in both nervous and excited mostly because they are trying something new to them. I begin with some humorous banter while I’m gathering important information to put my new clients at ease & jumpstart the relaxation process.
Clients come out of the session feeling lighter, more positive and confident that some deep healing occurred while they were in the trance/hypnosis state. They get the notes that I have transcribed from their session that they can review days later to reconnect with important ideas & to refresh.
Clients get homeplay (not homework because who wants more chores?!) to focus on furthering the integration process and healing between sessions. Proud to say I leave people feeling happier and more hopeful than when they came in.
Hypnotherapy is a unique approach to healing since you’re working with a part of the mind that is mostly mysterious for many people.
We access the unconscious mind through relaxing the body since that is where the mind/body interface lies-the place where the conscious mind can perceive the unconscious.
To undo bad programming, which for most is due to stressful childhood experiences, we have to “get under the hood” to effectively rewire the irrational mind which doesn’t always respond well to logic.
We have to find the common language that the unconscious speaks which is through our feelings or emotions.
