I am a certified Hypnotherapist!

Here is how I work. You will need three sessions. If, after the first session, you feel that this won't work for you; there is no charge. It is important that you believe. If you feel negative, then I can’t help you. So, I won’t charge you. I am keeping the price low so that anyone can have access to it. Any donations are accepted; this helps me keep my prices low.

You can learn self-hypnosis. You can take control. Three sessions and you are in control. Learn to relax, be happy, and relieve stress. There is no reason to suffer - Call: 541 631-8545 - I now live in Ashland, OR. My first priority is to help people; my second is to eat healthy food. The first three sessions are only $50.00 for all three sessions - all sessions after that are $20.00 per session. Three sessions will get you well into self-hypnosis. Anything after that is just for improvements or experiments. You may read my history in hypnosis below.

I start off with visualization. Visualization is very important. If you practice visualization before you come to your first session; it will help you progress. To do this at home; first set an object like a statue, or a doll in front of you. Stare at it until it is fixed in your mind. Then slowly close your eyes, and keep seeing the object in your mind. For some, this is easy. Once you are able to do this, you are on your way.

I found hypnosis so easy to do, that I didn't feel right about charging anyone to put them under. I was told by a number of people, that I have something to offer, and that it can help people. Anything free is not of any value to anyone, therefore I am charging.

Learn self-hypnosis. Take control. Three session and you are in control. Learn to relax, be happy, relieve stress. No need to suffer. Call: 541 631-8545 - The first three sessions are only $50.00 - all sessions after that are $20.00 per session.

MY HISTORY WITH HYPNOSIS AND SELF-HYPNOSIS

I was honorably discharged from the US Army in 1953. I was in the service for two years during the Korean War. I did not go to Korea, instead I was sent on a secret mission called “Operation Blue Jay.” I knew nothing about it until a few years ago, when I found something online about it.

At the time I was in the Amphibious Engineers, running a landing craft (LCM). We were almost 700 miles above the Arctic Circle, at a place called Thule, Greenland, and very near to Russia. We were first put over the sides of our troopship to break the ice that was covering the bay (Baffin Bay). Then we worked 12-hour shifts (My shift was from 6:00PM to 6:00AM) unloading Victory ships (from WWII). It was daylight all of the time, but when the sun was close to setting, it got much colder. Early in August we left before the ice blocked us in.

This was during the cold war with Russia. Historians do not fully agree on the dates, but a common timeframe is the period between 1947, the year President Truman pledged to aid nations threatened by Soviet expansionism, and 1991, the year the Soviet Union collapsed. We were there in the summer of 1952. That winter the project, which was an air base, was disclosed. It was kept secret because it was so close to Russia. That winter, before I was discharged, I was teaching communications at Fort Sherman, on the Atlantic side of the Panama Canal.

I returned to Florida after visiting my family in Pittsburgh, PA. I enrolled at the University of Miami, in Coral Gables, FL through the GI Bill. One of my subjects was psychology, which included study in hypnosis. I found it very interesting and started to practice on friends and people I met on Miami Beach.

In high school along with being a boxer, and a football player (high school, college and semiprofessional), I was a gymnast. I loved swimming. Because of my acrobatic experience, I soon became an acrobatic diver. While attending the University of Miami, I visited the hotels on Miami Beach that had diving boards where I could work out, and also, to see all of the pretty ladies who were down on vacations.

One day a couple of divers joined me at the diving board. We exchanged suggestions to improve our diving. It turned out they were acrobatic divers who worked in water shows at most of the large hotels on the Miami Beach. They asked me to join them. Being the show off and ham that I was, I joined them. We took turns emceeing the shows. We performed in most of the hotels on Miami Beach.

One fellow in the group had a friend who performed as a hypnotist. He took me to one of the shows and introduced me to him. I became a steady – I also volunteered to be hypnotized when he couldn’t get a volunteer. Then, I was offered a job in one of the hotels. I became a swimming and diving instructor, and then an agent booked me as a stand up comedian in the smaller hotels on Miami Beach (that’s another story).

One hotel had a trampoline. While giving a lesson to a girl in her teens I ran into a problem. She could bounce, but she couldn’t do a simple seat drop with a twist. She couldn’t do the seat drop let alone the twist. Finally after many attempts, I took her into a cabana, put her under, then suggested that she would have a strong desire to learn to jump on the trampoline, that she would follow my directions because it would help her learn. We went back to the trampoline and in three attempts she was doing perfect seat jumps, ready to learn more.

You have no idea how exciting that was for me, also for her. It opened a new avenue for me. I used it frequently when faced with a difficult student.

One man, in his fifties, had tried many of the top swimming instructors on Miami beach without success. My first lesson with him, in the water, showed me the fear he had was well justified. In four feet of water, if his feet came off of the bottom of the pool, his head would go forward into the water and he could not right himself. I set him back on his feet and started working with him.

First, I put him under, and then removed his fear. On the third lesson he was jumping into the deep end and swimming to the other side of the pool.

Age regression was another aspect of hypnosis that I practiced. I could take people back to their childhood with ease. As a test, I would open their eyes, give them a pen and some paper, and then ask them to write their name. Invariably, they would print it in large letters, the way they first learned to write. Some added letters that had been dropped from their name years before.

One lady started speaking in French. Afterwards, when I told her about it, she said that when she was young, she lived in France and attended a boarding school.

One person said he was in another life, said his father was chasing him because he had cut a hole in their teepee. I didn’t know if he was joking, or if it really happened.

I don’t lay any claims to regressing people to another life, although I have had some experiences that were rather mystifying. I worked with numerous people throughout my life with great success. It was so simple for me that it never entered my mind to charge for the service. I just charged for the lessons or did it to help. It was so easy. I was never a good businessman.

Once when I was working at the Circle Star Theatre, outside of San Francisco, I had an exciting experience. I was the artist relations person who took care of all of the stars who played at the theatre: Celebrities: Neil Diamond, Dionne Warwick, Sammy Davis Jr., Don Rickles, to name a few of the many acts that were at the theatre. When Jesus Christ Super Star came to the theatre, Edie Walker and Robert Coriff had the leads. We had good times after the show; going to clubs and restaurants, or just riding around in the limousine.

June Lockhart joined us for many of those nights. Sunday, before the matinee, Edie was acting rather strange. She said she felt terrible and was very hyper. We went into her dressing room, she knew that I practiced hypnosis, so she let me put her under, in order to relax her.

During the session, I told her she was going to take a short nap, have a pleasant dream, then wake up feeling wonderful. Because I studied vocalization, and knew the terminology, I told her that when she got on stage her throat would open up, that she would sing like she never sang before. I watched from the sound booth and listened, both on headphones and over the sound system. She was brilliant. It was the first time she ever got a standing ovation. When she came backstage, She was elated, wanted me to go on the road, touring with her.

I sometimes regret not going, but that wasn’t my destiny. I’m still not sure what that was, but I feel I’m getting close.

Much later in life I started doing self-hypnosis. I did it for healing and to relieve the stress. For me it worked - I do it to this day. I never felt right about charging anyone for a hypnotic session, because it was so easy. Then one day I taught a friend how to apply self-hypnosis. It helped him, and then I realized the value of it.

My son, Torre, was studying message therapy at a school that also taught hypno-therapy. He suggested I take the courses in order to get a certificate, which I did. Not much had changed since the early days when I studied it at the University of Miami. What had evolved was that they put a lot of labels on the various techniques and levels of sleep. There was one technique that I did with difficult subjects, something I probably read about. Someone wrote about it in a way that sounded like it was something new. I learned a long time ago that nothing is new, just rearranged. One day I put the entire class under.

Now I teach self-hypnosis, and I charge.
