Pain Control and Healing Chronic Pain
When I first began my hypnosis practice in Chapel Hill, I had a lot of free time on my hands.
I decided to volunteer for Hospice, and whenever they had a patient who was in so much pain that the amount of medication needed to ease the pain turned them into a zombie, they called me in. I would make a home visit and in one or two sessions the pain medications could be reduced without any increase in their pain. Subsequently, I received numerous calls from grateful surviving relatives who told me that I had helped make the final weeks for the deceased and their caretakers a much more palatable and less painful experience.
Then in the late 80's
I healed my own chronic lower back pain using the processes in this program and began working with those suffering with migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, back pain and other forms of chronic pain. For years I worked closely with The University of North Carolina Neurology Headache Clinic and I have been able to help many patients recover fully or seriously reduce their pain. I recently published a book, The Six Week Pain Solution: A Radically Effective New Approach to Fibromyalgia, Back Pain, Migraines and More, describing my protocol. If you're suffering from pain, whether acute or chronic, I can help you to at least significantly reduce, if not eliminate, your pain experience. One of my greatest pleasures is witnessing clients who have been suffering for years get their life back.
Overcoming A Dental Phobia Or Fear
I first worked on this when one of the teachers at my daughters' school brought her 8 year old daughter in because of a very traumatic experience at the dentist's.
It had taken the dentist two hours to fix one cavity and she had a couple more to do. I saw her for only one session. (I can't promise that one session is enough for everyone adults often aren't as quick on the uptake as children) I used an NLP technique along with hypnosis, and a week later I got a call from her dentist wanting to know what I had done to her. The dentist said that when she approached my client with the needle filled with anesthetic, instead of screaming like she had the first time, she started giggling. The procedure went smoothly and the dentist decided to come see me to get help with some problems she was having. If you have a dental phobia or an inordinate amount of fear in anticipation or while in the dentist's office, then know that in a brief time the only problem with the dentist can be the time spent and the expense. Won't that be wonderful?!!

Reducing Health Care Costs through Hypnosis
Hypnosis is the most direct method for changing habits by addressing sub-conscious patterns.
Here at Alan Konell Hypnotherapy, we provide three distinct hypnosis programs to address lifestyle changes that are proven to reduce health care costs.
These programs are Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss and Management, and Stress Reduction.
Using hypnosis programs to help employees is not new.
Companies including WalMart, General Motors, Century 21 and many more have utilized hypnosis programs to benefit their employees.
For organizations committed to realizing ROI through multi-tried wellness interventions, hypnosis is a proven effective tool within their wellness strategy.
While smoking, obesity and chronic stress are physical issues, these health risks are all regulated and "scripted" by unconscious emotional patterns.
Effectively changing these unconscious patterns significatly increases the probability for success.
Stress Reduction & Management
Wellness professionals universially accept that stress is a major contributor to psychological and physical disease.
Reducing stress can positively affect health, wellness and the avoidance of chronic disease.
A Carnegie Mellon University study concluded that stress wreaks havoc on the mind and body.
According to the study, stress is associated with greater risk for depression, heart disease and infectious diseases.They showed that high levels of stress lead to greater in flammation in the body. Inflammation is now considered the primary factor in the development of chronic disease. (Sheldon Cohen, et al. Chronic stress, glucocorticoid receptor resistance, inflammation, and disease risk. PNAS, April 2, 2012).
The Stress Avoidance and Reduction Program
The Stress Avoidance and Reduction Program
A three-hour seminar combining education, demonstration and practice in which participants will learn how to think about stress in a way that facilitates using the power of their mind to avoid and reduce stress. Also, we will explore simple strategies for engaging the circumstances of our life so as to significantly reduce the degree and frequency of the stress response. All participants will be taught three distinct methods of self hypnosis and receive MP3 of a self hypnosis session.
For organizations committed to employee wellness by assisting them in their efforts to stop smoking, we offer a 2-3 hour on-site. Smoking Cessation Clinic.
The Clinic combines education
about how hypnosis effectively helps people quit smoking, with live, guided hypnotic experiences that incorporate proven smoking cessation protocols.
The Smoking Cessation Clinic also provides a customized take home "support package" including an MP3 recording for participants to use at home.
Hypnosis is the most effective way for giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of different methods.
In a metaanalysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe comparing various methods of quitting, on average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit atone. (University of Iowa, Journal of Applied Psychology." How one in five give up smoking."October,1992.)
Hypnosis has proven to be effective both as a stand alone treatment and supplemental treatment for weight-loss. Wellness minded-organizations know the stats about obesity and it's impact on the workplace and health care costs. Obese employees:
Cost private US employees an estimated $45 billion annually in medical expenditures and work lost
Have been shown to have 42% higher health care costs than non-obese coworkers
Tend to have greater work absenteeism due to illness then their coworkers who are at a healthy weight.
Weight Loss Program
A 2-3 hour clinic combining education about how hypnosis interrupts emotional eating and reinforces healthy habits, with live guided hypnosis experiences plus a free MP3 hypnosis recording and a free download of Alan's e-book, "12 Secrets to Losing Weight and Keeping it Off."
