The Clinical Hypnosis Program offered at the Maplesoft Center, is designed to help clients with the emotional side of dealing with cancer, as well as learning to use imagery for health. Clients learn to empower themselves by learning and practicing Mind-Body Techniques.
Karinna Najera, Clinical Hypnotherapist and owner at Focus on Hypnotherapy explains that “the purpose of self hypnosis is to strengthen the connection between mind and body.Clients will learn to use imagery to promote health, wellness and balance.”
