    Maureen Pisani of San Diego | Living Proof Hypnosis Works

    I know for a fact that Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy are effective, can do what others say is impossible and do offer results where other modalities, techniques and medications fail.

    I’m living proof that Hypnotherapy works. I suffered cubital tunnel syndrome, the elbow joint equivalent of carpal tunnel syndrome. I underwent 10 surgeries, 5 on each elbow. The surgeons did everything they could think of to control the pain. Nothing worked. I was prescribed all sorts of medications. In fact, at one point I was taking 24 tablets a day, 14 of which were for pain. I tried acupuncture, physical therapy, orthotic devices, psychotherapy and nothing helped.

    I went through 6 years of this non-stop, debilitating pain. I went through my day in paralyzing pain. I tried to sleep with mind-numbing pain; I woke up every 40-50 minutes with stabbing shots of pain. It was the only thing I connected with.

    I couldn’t live like that. I couldn’t function. I needed assistance with everything I did. It was a miserable existence.

    After 6 years of struggling through a consistently worsening condition; the doctors washed their hands of me. I was declared 100% disabled and placed on social security. I was given a lifetime supply of medications and that was it for them. They had exhausted their resources. They had run out of answers and possible solutions. Instead of looking for new and alternative answers to help me, they simply walked away.

    I was not ready to give up. I couldn’t give up. This was my life. This was my future. Something had to be done.

    Luckily, I stumbled on Hypnosis. Had no clue what it was. I had nothing to lose, so I gave it a shot.

    A disaster that took 6 years, 10 surgeries and over 25,000 tablets was resolved in two Hypnotherapy sessions! Two sessions and all of the pain was resolved.

    I have been asked, “How is that possible?”

    It is possible because hypnosis was able to bridge the mind and body and resolved the subconscious conflict.

    The Western system discontinued their approach, because no one could figure out what was wrong from their mechanical point of view. Hypnotherapy approached my condition from a mind/body-blended point of view. No one other than a hypnotherapist can do that.

    If anyone asks me if Hypnosis works, my answer is simple. "Yes, Hypnosis works."

    Hypnosis gave me a second future. It’s as simple as that. Think about it for a second, if I, a medical “lost cause”, could receive, and continue to enjoy such an incredible and remarkable result from hypnotherapy, what kind of phenomenal results can other people obtain considering that they’re not a “lost cause” like I was?

    I live the benefits of hypnosis on a daily basis. I know it’s real. I don’t need anyone else to try and convince me. I’m living proof.
