I never had a major medical issue until the cancer diagnosis. It was shocking to say the least. I was enjoying work and was chosen to be a presenter at a convention out west. It was as if everything stopped and the priority….ME….was the only focus.

How did I use hypnosis? Well, it started from the beginning. From keeping a positive (and hopeful) frame of mind to the operation and beyond. I remember the myriad of emotions and I don’t know where I would be without hypnosis and my belief in God. There is scientific proof that there is a mind/body connection. I believe the hypnotic suggestions were a major part of my healing years later.

How can hypnosis help?

  • Pain and physical symptom control
  • Smoking
  • Exam, procedure or operation anxiety management
  • Medical treatment side effects such as nausea and vomiting
  • Stress management
  • Phobias
  • Pre or Post Diagnosis
  • Healing Mindset

How can I help?

One way is by understanding. Lots of people can be sympathetic and have loving intentions, but experiencing it is another ballgame. I listen and I understand.


We can have a hypnosis session together in-person or online. Depending upon your location, we will arrange an appointment in my office, on the computer or by telephone. At the session, we talk about how you are feeling and what issues you are having. Then I use hypnotic techniques to help you get into a frame of mind that is ready to take the suggestions for healing, pain management, etc.


I teach my clients self-hypnosis at our second session. Why? Because it’s empowering! All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and this skill will translate to you being able to manage quite a bit on your own. After experiencing it firsthand, practicing and understanding it, you will be able to implement the techniques when you are at home, work, etc.

We can’t always control what happens, but we can control how we react and what we do. Call Tina Pineiro at (570) 352 3048.
