Yes, but "the other side" is very vast too. Mediumship and intuitives are different. Not all hypnotherapists are mediums and intuitives.
If you want to contact a loved one, mediums or trained hypnotherapists will connect with a part of your loved one's consciousness. This could mean they transmit messages, connect with a past, present or future timeline and share a message.

The more intentional you are with your question and depending how the hypnotherapist frames the question and reads energy, the more you are able to connect with their consciousness.

It is important to ask your energy healer where they are channeling energy from. Use your discernment and ask questions. Reiki is an energy channeled from a specific density. Intuitive energy healing tends to be Source guided healing, but every practitioner channels energy based off their level of consciousness, Soul's wisdom, knowledge and training.

Both are used to heal the energy body, but again ask your practitioner because so many healers do not know where they are channeling from. Every healer works on different levels of your aura as well. Some only work on the physical and etheric layers (physical body healing, emotional and mental bodies) , while others move into your higher templates and start to do past life healing and energy surgeries. Your energetic body is sacred.

You have chakras on every layer of your energetic field too, so ask which layers your healer works on to get a better idea of the work they will be doing!

An intuitive session consists of an intuitive tapping into Source energy and/or your energy field to receive messages.

Now, every intuitive travels to different densities and dimensions based on their frequency. The way an intuitive poses a question is an absolute game changer when it comes to reading energy. There is not one place intuitives go to in the astral world.

The nature of your energetic field will affect the way I frame a question and travel to other densities. Meaning the more one is open, receptive and in a state of love, the more one will receive because the responses of questions have to meet your energetic rhythm too, hence why every reader and client has their own unique session.
My goal is to help you understand your past and present to make more empowered decisions in your future. I meet you where you are at and help you get on your highest and most fulfilling timeline!

I believe the greater question is, what can't HypnoTherapy do? If you can imagine a computer programmer for the brain, that's what a good quality HypnoTherapist is for a client. From task motivation to treating IBS, from clearing out PTSD to speaking directly to your subconscious and everything in between. Can HypnoTherapy grow you a third arm? No, but it can unlock your mind giving you new avenues to approach any situation in life.

Step into your true power today & heal what's hidden in the depths of your subconscious. By addressing shadow parts, childhood trauma, and past lives you can begin the journey to self-acceptance.

From the moment you have a heartbeat, your consciousness absorbs any and all information it can find. In utero, if your mother suffered from depression or high levels of stress, those hormones affect you subconsciously, even before you are born. As you expand into your early years of life other conditioning takes place, whether it's from your parents/guardians, friends, or the education system, you learn habits of how to cope and adjust to emotional struggles.

For instance, if at a young age you were criticized heavily, you may suffer from people-pleasing and a lack of self-esteem. your coping mechanism to deal with criticism is to serve others and put your own needs aside. Even as an adult, you are still reacting the way you did in your early years.

Inner child healing is all about recognizing these behaviors in your life that correlate to the environment your mother was in while pregnant, and/or your upbringing. When we heal the inner child with all the wisdom and knowledge that life gives us, we open the door to emotional intelligence and healthy coping mechanisms that will serve us throughout our life. Think of it as reparenting yourself the way your soul needed to be parented as a child.

Irritation to the skin, especially itchiness and inflammation can be connected to feeling uncomfortable in situations, anxious, nervous or other mental and emotional balances. Check your diet, skincare products, clean your pillows and spend some time observing your inner states.

I approach everyone as a whole person.

Great question. Thank you for sharing. What if you changed the focus point and instead ask, how do I make me happy? The shift is subtle. Did you catch it? What can you do for yourself and in your life to make you happy. Rather than searching for happiness on the outside, get in touch with yourself from within and fulfill yourself.

I am a practitioner of Ancient Healing Arts such as acupuncture and herbalism. My goal is to bring awareness towards a balance-based approach to holistic healing.

Traditional Herbal therapy may be the answer that you've been looking for!

IBS is an autoimmune disease of the GI tract and you must employ a treatment modality that will help to restore GI function as well as help with inflammation that is caused by autoimmune disorders.

It is important to treat not only the symptom of IBS, but also any underlying imbalances that may have contributed to the IBS (and that may contribute to more disorders in the body).

Herbal medicine, such as traditional Chinese formulas, help to detoxify the tissues of the body to help rid the body of toxic material, while also nourishing the body at the deepest level.

By balancing and harmonizing the body, healing can occur.

Hope this helps! All the best!

Before we can answer that question we have to determine why your balance isn't 100%. The balance system is a complex network of multiple sensory inputs (vision, inner ear, joints/muscles) and central (brain) processing. Determining which component is the weak link by simple, but targeted, testing helps develop a personalized, efficient, and effective balance program. Programs may involve visual processing exercises, strengthening, cardio, weight lifting, vestibular exercises, posture, or all of the above. I'm happy to do a consult to give you more specifics about your goals and needs!

As a Quantum Health & Healing practitioner, I utilize hypnosis, energy & coaching in conjunction with quantum principles for rapid transformation in assisting clients in regaining health on all levels

I'd like to add that Spiritual Hypnotherapy also includes getting in touch with ones higher self and ones pure essence/divine spark. The divine spark is the part of us which remains pure and whole, untouched by all of life's experiences and traumas. Hypnosis is utilized to assist the client in shedding the many layers built up over a lifetime and experiencing who they are at their core and their relationship with G-d/Source. It's like having a Near Death Experience NDE, and gaining the benefits, without having to go through the NDE.

Harmonyum is a powerful, elegant, spiritual healing system that was developed
with the aim of making self-healing possible. It addresses disease at the mental
and emotional level so that it may no longer exist in the physical body.

Harmonyum leads to glowing health, vigor, happiness and increased longevity
through the slowing of the aging process.

Harmonyum promotes excellent health in the body and spirit by nurturing and strengthening one’s primal essence. It promotes profound states of deep relaxation and restores the body to an ideal state of balance and harmony. Continuous treatments release the body’s innate healing wisdom and bestow the effects of years of meditation, bringing you into a higher cycle of manifestation.

Harmonyum is a gentle hands-on healing system directed at the spine, brain and internal organs. Now available as Harmonyum at a distance via zoom, skype, facetime
Harmonyum employs the ancient art of utilizing the acupuncture meridians via the body’s electromagnetic field. According to Chinese meridian theory, meridians are the communication structure for energy in the same way that veins and arteries are the communication for blood throughout the body and nerve tracks are the communication for neural messages. The energy that travels through meridians influences all other body fluids such as blood and hormones and all other systems such as the nervous system, immune system and cardiovascular system. The Harmonyum Healing System floods the meridians with the highest vibrations causing a cascade of revitalization to the body and advancement of the mind.


Religious and Spiritual Neutrality
Harmonyum is a safe and appropriate therapeutic modality for hospitals and medical offices serving patients and clients of all philosophical and spiritual backgrounds. It integrates easily with health plans that include psychology, psychiatry, internal medicine, acupuncture, chiropractics and physical therapy as an allied healing modality.

Empowering the Self Healing Mechanism and not Diagnosing

The primary goal of a Harmonyum Healing Treatment is to empower the self healing mechanism inside each person. The philosophy behind the Harmonyum experience is that it is a time when the practitioner and client release the connection to the health disturbance and focus on complete balance. For this reason, during certification programs, practitioners are guided to maintain spiritual neutrality toward all clients. Additionally, they are instructed not to discuss emotional, spiritual or psychological issues and not to diagnose their clients. While the Harmonyum treatment was developed through a certain spiritual tradition, its mechanism for effectiveness requires no need of belonging or participating in those spiritual activities.

Theoretical Framework

While research on the effectiveness and mechanisms for the effects of Harmonyum are currently under way, the following three areas show the most promise: Acupuncture Meridians, Spinothalamic Tract of the Nervous System and Meditation.


One of the cornerstones of academic integrity is the adherence to attributing credit to the source of information. In medical science this is especially important as the collective knowledge base is built upon the shoulders of previous researchers and thinkers. Documenting the lineage of current wisdom provides the ability to more deeply understand and more thoroughly critique that which is being posited. We urge that this same academic rigor must be applied to the indigenous and spiritual thinkers who have made significant contribution to modern medical practices and discoveries. The first academics were often spiritual thinkers. In many communities, the spiritual leader was also the medical care provider and theorist. The great discoveries that allowed humanity to survive were made within a spiritual paradigm of thought. Many vital techniques that are integral to modern medicine were developed and discovered in direct association with their spiritual belief system. For example, herbal medicine, is the basis of modern pharmacology. In 2003, it was reported that approximately 80% of all antimicrobial, cardiovascular, immunosuppressive, and anticancer drugs are of plant origin (Pan, 2013). In her article documenting the statistical success rate of pharmaceutical development, Si-Yuan Pan states the following, “Given that the development of synthetic chemicals for therapeutic use is, by and large, a random process that might result in serendipitous discovery, many pharmaceutical companies are now focused on the development of plant-derived drugs (2013).” Other modern branches of medicine owe tribute to early, spiritually based systems. For example the bone setters of China (Zhigang, 1996), Native American healers, the Curanderas of Mexico and South America and the tuina therapists of China contributed to the field of orthopedics, chiropractics and physical therapy. The field of neuroscience has developed much interest in the role the mind plays in health. There has been a surge in research on benefits of meditation in recent years. In 2013, a successful result was achieved in research on breast cancer survivors and meditation’s effect on sleep and fatigue (Lev-ari, 2013). Another positive result was obtained on anxiety and systolic blood pressure in nursing students (Chen, Y, 2013). Meditation is the direct descendent of the spiritual systems throughout the world. To benefit from the discoveries brought forth from the developers of meditation and not give credit to the spiritual systems that developed them over the years would be a direct violation of the scientific standard of attribution. Physicians such as Dr. Lawrence Bohun (1610-11) and Dr. John Tennent (1736) were just a few documented physicians who observed the Native American herbalists (Vogel, 1970).

It is the opinion of our organization, based upon legal president, that during the course of a Harmonyum session, it is not an obligation of the practitioner to discuss the origin of the therapy. However, if a direct inquiry is made, it is the obligation of the practitioner to provide this information.

The Relationship between Medicine and Spirituality

While our organization promotes the right of every patient or client to receive medical care free from religious pressure or promotion, it is also recognized that very little that happens in medicine that was developed independent of spirituality. The difference between performing a spiritual ritual and utilizing a healing system that was derived from spiritual sources is defined in the following way by our organization. A spiritual ritual is an action taken on the part of one or more individuals to delve into a particular form of spirituality for primarily worship and devotional purposes. The act of utilizing a healing system that is derived from a spiritual source implies that the recipient and practitioner are engaged in the prescribed steps that produce a particular physical response intended for physical healing. For example, during an acupuncture treatment, the practitioner may think in a Taoist paradigm for the purposes of diagnosing and deciding upon a needling strategy. This does not mean that the recipient, in any way, becomes Taoist or is prompted to explore Taoism. In a Harmonyum treatment, no spiritual advice is provided, no promotion of engagement in a religious activity or affiliation is involved. The treatment session is said to be spiritually neutral. This makes Harmonyum an appropriate healing modality regardless of the spiritual, philosophical or religious affiliation of the recipient. Energy Medicine Energy medicine has received recent interest as is evidenced by the increase in research dedicated to the topic. It has been conducted for the purposes of understanding its existence, mechanism, determine its effectiveness. Harmonyum falls into the category of energy and touch medicine. There are parts that require soft and superficial touch along the spine and other parts that involve projecting an electromagnetic force from the hands. This skill is little understood and the idea that it is even possible is controversial for scientists and the general public. This capacity is often tied to the existence of energy meridians that are capable of absorbing and emitting electromagnetic fields. Joines, Bawmen and Kruth investigated the existence of electromagnetic emission from humans during focused intent. They found that certain individuals, who called themselves healers or meditators, were able to control the emission of measureable and significant levels of electromagnetism (2012). In 2013, Baldwin, Fullmer and Schwartz conducted research comparing physical therapy with energy healing for improving range of motion in subjects with restricted shoulder mobility. Other researchers such as Juliano in 2011, Moga and Bengston in 2010, Yin Lo in 2012, Baldwin in 2013 and numerous others have conducted research on energy healing and over time it has become increasingly accepted in the medical fields.

Acupuncture is a form of energy medicine that works on the energy meridians. It is now considered an essential health benefit in most states of the union and the Affordable Care Act now dictates that all health insurance packages cover acupuncture. According to the American Hospital Association, 15% of American hospitals (more than 800 facilities) offered Reiki as a hospital service in 2007. A joint publication by the American Holistic Nurses Association and American Nurses Association lists Reiki as an accepted form of treatment (Baldwin, 2013).

yes, most definitely. This is actually what I see most of my clients for. The mind is incredibly powerful and we can program it to help with fear and anxiety, pain management, recovery time and expectations of healing. It's one of the most powerful tools I've used to help people through their surgery, everything from breast reconstruction to open heart surgery (twice) to knee and hip replacement. It's great for post-op as well.

A very common issue, Jonathan, thanks for the question. My favorite tool for this when I'm coaching someone with this issue is to use ego state work. We identify the parts of ourselves and tap in to the one that has the social strength, your inner extrovert. We empower that part to take over when needed and anchor that in. It's an amazing technique and can be used for so many issues.

Emotional Trauma
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
As Integration and Embodiment Specialist, Life Guide Coach, & Holistic Nutritionist I support you to live your most satisfying life. To learn more, visit somaaloia.com.

This is an important question, especially now in these times. Calming the nervous system is the first step to healing PTSD but not the crucial step. Consistent body-centered therapy practices such as Craniosacral Therapy, Healing Touch, acupuncture, Somatic Experiencing-style Counseling, and hypnosis, in time, heal PTSD for life-long change. My life was changed dramatically by Craniosacral Therapy in particular, after a brain injury from a car accident. In fact, this therapy helped me be better than I was even before the accident. Any therapist who has done their own trauma healing is most effective at addressing others'. Choose a practitioner who can sit with you and be centered, with deep listening and empathy, regardless of how intense you feel and express yourself. :)

I bring a holistic approach to my sessions and meet you where you are in the present. I help you shed light on your past and illuminate your present to make empowered decisions in your future.

I would recommend an intuitive because a past life regressionist could shed light on issues from a past life, but if you are struggling in this life, start by understanding your struggles in this lifetime.

Past lives are not linear and can confuse people if they are not aware of their struggles in this lifetime first.
Example: an irrational fear could be linked to a past lifetime, but you have to first understand the nature of the fear to see if it could be connected to this lifetime first.

Emotional Eating
Sugar Addiction
Weight Loss

A very common question for sure and as other hypnotherapists have mentioned, sometimes it's not about the sugar, but a throwback to childhood comfort or a longing for something sweet in your life. I've worked with a few clients who assumed the issue was the sugar, but upon further examination it was a childhood issue, a means to escape or a reward for something done. Having said that, yes hypnosis can help get to the root of the issue and make positive changes. Thanks for the question.

Congratulations on making a decision to make a change! Now that it is October, how is it going? Reflecting on what has and hasn't worked for you thus far is a great place to start. Health and fitness is always a work in progress - expect to ebb and flow. Recognizing good habits that you can build on can give you confidence, joy, and motivation. Recognizing "bad" habits and making a plan to shift them can give you an objective goal to work towards. Sometimes you can do this on your own, or with the help of a friend or partner. If that isn't enough, having a health and wellness coach that can see the "big picture" can revolutionize the way you look at your journey. I'm happy to consult to give you more personalized advice!

Find the old YOU who has been lost, the one with energy, confidence, and independence from medications. Get back to doing things you are passionate about and find healing in return.

Yes your DNA would show you if you are at risk, however, in many cases these risks can be avoided through diet and lifestyle choices. If you are interested in looking into cognitive health
and Alzheimer's/dementia, I would strongly suggest the online community at www.apoe4.info. Here you will find carriers of the gene that have been able to prevent any symptoms from developing even into their senior years. You will also find many resources for preventing all disease and chronic illness, not just cognitive.

Health coaching designed for you. My mission is simple: give my clients the wellness education, tools and resources that they need to feel happy, healthy, and capable of managing life’s pressures.

Everyone! It's a great opportunity to evaluate your diet. As a health coach, I myself have benefited from nutrition counseling. It's a learning process for anyone to take advantage of. I also believe that it could be hugely beneficial for anyone that's having any type of health challenge. Food is medicine and knowing what works and doesn't work for your own system can help you heal.

It's experiential, not abstract. If you feel desperate, and have tried everything else for pain, Awareness Through Movement allows you to experience the pleasure of your body being all connected.

You can loosen the grip of stress by listening to your body. Much of our lives are spent on autopilot. The Feldenkrais Method combines mindfulness and movement.

Your body amplifies emotions and your organization. How you organize yourself reflects what you feel. Imagine anger or fear, and how your body changes organization. Private Feldenkrais sessions create a safe, positive, integrated experience of self, using gentle touch and movement. It feels amazing to be touched this way. I hope that I can facilitate your ability to calm down, unblock areas of the body, and make it ok to sense pleasure and love yourself.
