Stress and Anxiety is a part of life. Everyone has some. How and when you deal with stress and anxiety is important. Self-Confidence, Risk Taking, Insomnia

Injury Management

To date, the focus on concussions has been on education, prevention, diagnosis and baseline testing.


Treatments have been lacking. TAP™ offers a safe method that has safely eliminated concussion symptoms of nausea, dizziness and headaches while improving cognitive functioning. Suffering is reduced while the brain returns to normal functioning.

Hypnosis has many medical and therapeutic benefits. In 1958, the American Medical Association approved hypnosis as a medical and dental tool.


Hypnosis was used to control pain before anesthesia. It has benefited thousands with various conditions.

There is more in dealing with an injury or condition than just, "stitching up a wound" or "reducing pain." You are mind- body-spirit. Each part needs to be addressed. Doing so, improves your chances of complete healing, not just temporary symptom removal.
