Clinical Hypnosis is an amazing therapy because it is effective, often less costly, and typically fewer sessions are needed. Hypnosis helps you to access and use the power of your own mind to heal yourself. In his book, The Biology of Belief, Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D states, "The subconscious mind controls 95% of our behavior and gene regulating cognitive activity." As a clinical hypnotist, the subconscious is Mr. Ryan's focus.

One of the brain's most marvelous qualities is that it can be transformed. Hypnosis changes the brain wave activity to alpha or theta levels. The right hemisphere of the brain becomes dominant and these alterations activate a creative state of mind for new learning and new perceptions. The hypnotist asks the patient to imagine he/she is in comfortable place and to visualize his/her goal. The hypnotist gives specific suggestions and also requests that the patient search for new solutions. Most patients report that they have highly focused attention, deep relaxation and remain very alert. Larry Dossey, MD and best selling author, has written that "When the history of your medical age is written, the explorers of hypnosis will, I believe, occupy a high place. If so, the honor will be fitting, for what territory is worth greater attention than our mind and its potential to heal."
