Clinical Hypnosis

clinical hypnosis

“Hypnosis is not mind control. It’s a naturally occurring state of concentration; it’s actually a means of enhancing your control over both your mind and your body. Hypnotic subjects are fully awake and focused (hyper-focused) with a corresponding decrease in their peripheral awareness.”
David Spiegel, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, Stanford University School of Medicine


Hypnotherapy (also called clinical hypnosis or medical hypnosis) can be a powerful tool to help you reach your self-improvement goals, enhance your athletic, work or school performance, and help you cope with mental, emotional and physical ailments.

At New Body ~ New Mind we use hypnosis either as a stand-alone intervention or as a complement to other medical treatments and services. We invite you to explore the links below to learn more about hypnosis.

Would you like to schedule an appointment?

To schedule an appointment, simply fill out our appointment request form online or give us a call at 617-969-8995. Prior to scheduling of your first appointment, we will conduct a telephone interview to determine if hypnotherapy is an appropriate option for you. If you are a good candidate for hypnotherapy, we’ll schedule your appointment and e-mail (or mail) you a questionnaire. We will ask you to return the questionnaire at least one week prior to your first hypnosis session. Your answers will help us further clarify the issues discussed during the telephone interview, enabling us to better prepare your hypnotherapy sessions.
