SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Targeting Pain? Dan Cleary, guest.

Dan Cleary, owner of the Hypnosis for Health Learning Center, joins Dr. Bunny in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the HypnoThoughts LIVE 2019 for very interesting & informative interview regarding chronic and acute pain, and so much more.

Many years ago, Dan was involved in a horrible motorcycle wreck that left him partially paralyzed.  Tune in and hear his story, as well as his hypnosis journey.  A fascinating interview!

Check out Dan Cleary’s incredible book: “Targeting Pain – A Practitioners Guide to Relief”.

About Dan Cleary:

Daniel F. Cleary, is an internationally recognized, certified Hypnosis Instructor and a certified Master Practitioner of NeuroLinguistic Psychology. Teaching Hypnosis and Hypnotic Techniques throughout the United States and Europe to Doctors, Psychologists, Therapists and other Hypnotists, his specialties include Pain Relief and Personal Transformation.

Daniel is the founder and director of HYPNOSIS FOR HEALTH LEARNING CENTER, based in North Palm Beach, Florida. He established and serves as president of The Palm Beach Hypnosis Group. He is a regular member of the teaching faculty at many of the national and international Hypnosis conferences and has provided specialized training for Hypnotists and licensed professional therapists since 1996.

Dan came to Hypnosis as a sufferer of chronic pain. In 1978 he was partially paralyzed as the result of a motorcycle wreck. The major injury sustained is referred to as a Brachial Plexus Avulsion, which in his case causes a burning, crushing sensation throughout his arm and hand, in addition to the paralysis. For five years Daniel was unable to sleep as we generally understand sleep. He then learned hypnosis and within a week began sleeping more regularly. Since that time he has devoted himself to developing techniques and approaches for the relief of chronic conditions. While still a “Chronic Sufferer” Dan has learned to shift the discomfort and participate fully in life. Join Dan and learn to assist your clients to excel.

Many of his articles and hypnosis scripts have been published in the journals of national Hypnosis organizations, books and magazines. He is well known for specialty courses in Pain Relief, Hypnosis Certification, Creating Change, Comfortable ChildBirth, Regression Research, Developing Intuition, and Effective Therapeutic Language.

SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Leadership, hypnotherapy, and women in business. Janece Hoopes, guest

Janece Hoopes joins Dr. Bunny in at the HypnoThoughts Live 2018 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, to discuss leadership in women’s business & hypnotherapy.

Janece and Dr. Bunny discuss the things that little girls are bombarded with at an early age – visuals of what a woman’s role is in the world, how they are supposed to look and act – and how that affects adult women in business. It is amazing how many successful women still have that doubting little voice in their head (“Am I good enough?”, “Did I do that good enough?”).

Tune in and learn how Janece can help you quiet that voice, believe in yourself and get YOUR Super Power onboard!

Janece Hoopes began doing therapeutic massage work in 1993, when she started Therapeutic Massage & Wellness Center. In 2010 she added Hypnotherapy to her offerings, in order to help clients heal on many levels.  She now focuses solely on her Hypnotherapy Services, trusting her excellent team to deliver the quality body work for which her company has come to be known.

After suffering for almost a year from a serious shoulder injury, I was amazed when hypnosis healed it!  That was the beginning of my belief that when a person learns how to access the power of their own subconscious mind any goal can be reached, any illness can be helped, and any pain can be minimized. I am in awe of the natural ability that each of us has to gain insight into and release our own limitations. By learning and making use of the simple and powerful tool of hypnosis, you can achieve better health, happier relationships, and a more satisfying life. – Janece Hoopes
