"Working with Tom Reed was incredibly positive and deeply transformative. In just a few sessions, Tom was able to guide me through very limiting and long-held subconscious beliefs about self-esteem, money, work, and physical health. I was surprised at the ease of hypnosis and the profound effects it had.
Tom's compassionate and insightful approach enabled me to change in long-lasting ways that have altered my life for the better. Not only is my life now fuller and more satisfying, but my relationships, my financial prosperity and my health have all improved!"
-Lauryn Axelrod, Ashland, OR
IN A NUTSHELL
If you know about hypnotherapy, then you know that the human mind has an amazing ability to create, whether that be health, wealth, relationship, or achievements in sports, art, or academia, or in any avenue of creativity, and that a good hypnotherapist can guide you towards creating the life you want. But if you don’t know about Hypnotherapy, here’s the basic idea:
"As a smoker for 34 years, I tried to quit many times without any success. I attempted all of the Medical approaches as well as acupuncture. After working with Tom I was able to quit completely and effortlessly. In addition, we addressed the many reasons I started smoking in the first place. I am very grateful to Tom. He made it easy to address many difficult issues. I confidently recommend Tom to someone who has no experience with hypnosis. I felt comfortable, supported and cared for in our work together."
--David Nelson, Santa Fe, NM
Medical Support Hypnotherapy is often a valuable adjunct to your doctor’s care, and can serve your healing and recovery in several ways. For example:
"Studies have also shown hypnosis reduces health care costs — patients who use it stay in the hospital for shorter periods and use less medication.
So why don't more people and hospitals use hypnosis? Part of the reason may be its stigma — patients and doctors may think of it more as "hocus pocus" than science. Another reason may be problems with the quality of hypnosis studies, leading doctors to be wary that it wastes time and money.All of these are misperceptions, its advocates say.
"Hypnosis is sort of the good kid with the bad reputation," said Julie Schnur a clinical psychologist and assistant professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. "It’s a fantastic procedure and can be very effective and very helpful to patients, but does come with this baggage," Schnur said.
In 2007, Schnur and colleagues conducted a study of 200 breast cancer patientswho needed surgery. About half underwent a 15-minute hypnosis session before their surgery; the other half talked with a psychologist about their thoughts and feelings pre-surgery.
Patients who underwent hypnosis required less sedative during the surgery, and because they were more relaxed, their surgeries lasted10 fewer minutes on average. They experienced less pain, nausea, fatigue and emotional upset following the surgery, Schnur said. The researchers calculated the hospital could save about $770 per cancer patient by employing hypnosis before surgery." -- Rachael Rettner, msnbc.msn.com
"I've just passed my one month mark from a successful hernia surgery. I don't think it would have been so amazingly easy without Tom's help. He tailored a personal treatment plan, beginning with thirty minutes of relaxing, trance-inducing musical/electronic sounds, then proceeding with his confident voice to suggest that my surgeon (Dr. Shue - he used his name) was the right man for the job, that my attitude was excellent,and my health superb. I appreciate Tom's care preparing me in advance at home, while waiting in the hospital, during the surgery, and while in recovery. My surgery was a great success. Tom's work on my behalf can be summed up with this: as I was being wheeled into the surgery, the attending physician noticed on my chart that I have post traumatic stress disorder, said to me that was his speciality; I shouldn't worry. I responded with no hesitation, 'there will not be any trauma in this surgery.'"

“...in this increasingly sophisticated world, adult athletes and the parents of child athletes understand--often better
than coaches do--that (hypnosis) can be an important or even essential part of success in sports."
--Edgette nd Rowan, authors of Winning the Mind Game
Many of the greatest athletes in history used hypnotherapy to help them achieve and maintain the mental conditions needed to achieve their goal. One of the most famous examples is Tiger Woods, who began hypnotic mental training at the age of 13. NBA coach Phil Jackson used hypnosis for all his championship basketball teams with the Bulls and Lakers.
As a former World Champion Oarsman and a Martial Arts Teacher, I have the experience to allow the level of rapport that athletes can only have with other athletes.
I work to help the unique athlete to overcome a variety of psychological hindrances and problems, and to acquire certain psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and affective qualities, so that their physical performance is enhanced.
Athletes often face a variety of psychological challenges. Here are a few of the more common ones:
-Poor training attitude -Bad habits
-Sport-related trauma -Poor mental state
These situations are so challenging because the subconscious mind maintains them in accordance with old mental programs. In Sports Hypnotherapy we find those old programs and change them, bringing them up to date, so they operate in service to the athlete’s goal.
We develop mental skills and strategies for the individual to use to achieve and stay at peak performance. The athlete is also trained to be able to drop into a mental state known as “the zone” or “flow.” This ability allows the well-trained athlete to let his/her skills and talent be performed without thinking too much.
"To uncover your true potential, you must first find your own limits and then you have to have the courage to blow past them."

Personal and Spritual Growth
There is a lot of talk in "New Age" circles these days about Earth entering a time of spritual awakening. Much of this talk is nothing more than fantasy, but the truth is that more and more people are waking up from the illusion of the small self living in a reality that is the product of deep mental conditioning. Before this awakening, there is usually an awareness that something is not right; there is a sense of some limitation, or the urge to let go of old mental habits, or a suspicion that it is time to move on in some way, often with a knowing that one must serve humanity and the planet, and make one's unique contribution.
When a person is in this phase, working with the subconscious can be as valuable as working with a spirital master,
if the work is done with a hypnotherapist that is spiritually aware.
"I had the most remarkable session with clinical hypnotherapist, Tom Reed.
Guiding me to my true center, like a master teaching zen in the art of archery, he hit the bull's eye.
It exceeded my expectations and I am buzzing with gratitude."
--Alena Guest, Mendocino, CA
