Client recognizes that the Hypnotherapist is not a licensed physician, psychiatrist or psychologist. The American Medical Association accepts hypnotherapy; however, it is not licensed by the State of California, nor are energy therapies.
Hypnosis is a natural, self-created state. The Hypnotherapist acts as a guide to help the client bypass the critical factor of the conscious mind, thereby, communicating directly with subconscious mind to make the changes he/she desires.

Energy modalities may be used in conjunction with hypnotherapy.
