Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is cooperative interaction during which the participant responds to the suggestions of the hypnotist. It is a scientifcally verifed and effective technique that can promote accelerated change. In addition, learning self-hypnosis can teach you how to stimulate desired changes in behavior and encourage both mental and physical well-being.

WHY WILL IT HELP ME?
If you, or your doctor, ever thought that your problem was “all in your head” then hypnotherapy may be your ideal solution. If your mind created your problem, then your mind can also be used to make you well. Hypnosis also facilitates changes in the body as well, and is used in both medical and dental procedures. The National Institutes of Health declared hypnosis effective in reducing pain from cancer and other chronic conditions.

Hypnosis isn’t a cure-all and it isn’t magic, but when a motivated client is ready to change his or her behavior Dr. Grossman has the experience of over 30 years and more than 20,000 hours of private sessions to help him or her do so.

DOES HE WORK WITH SMOKING CESSATION?
Dr. Grossman is an international expert in smoking cessation who has studied and worked with hundreds of thousands of smokers worldwide for more than 25 years. His unique hypnosis method addresses the three distinct components of the smoker’s conundrum: the psychological habit, the physical addiction, and the emotional self-image. Rather than “trying to stop smoking” he helps his clients focus on “becoming a non-smoker” while he uses hypnosis to take away their withdrawal symptoms such as cravings, anxiety and irritability. The results speak for themselves with 9 out of 10 smokers remaining smoke free long term. His technique works for both men and women cigarette smokers, as well as pipe, cigar, and marijuana smokers.

DOES HE WORK WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
Yes, Dr. Grossman has successfully worked with weight loss. He's helped actresses who needed to quickly lose 25 pounds for a part in a movie...and people who desperately needed to lose several hundred life threatening pounds. But most of his clients are probably just like you. You really want to be in better shape. You are sick of looking in the mirror and seeing yourself out of shape and unhealthy. Dr. Grossman’s hypnosis technique focuses on reprogramming the unconscious. Instead of focusing on “losing weight” (a negative mind set) he deliberately programs his client’s minds with powerful and positive concepts that help them to become lean, healthy, physically fit, strong, and attractive. Hypnosis is one the fastest known methods to overcome the negative mental programming of the past. Clients are unconsciously motivated towards vigorous exercise and nutritious food intake resulting in steady, healthy and natural weight loss. 

DOES HE WORK WITH STRESS AND ANXIETY?
A little stress can be good. It can keep you on your toes and help you to avoid boredom, but acute and chronic stress can undermine your performance, your leadership, your health and your wealth. Stressors…whether minor, such as being stuck in traffic…or major, such as divorce or a death in the family…all register in your mind as danger. Your body gears up to help you “flight” or “flee” the situation at hand. Prolonged stress can lead to depression, anxiety, burnout, disorganization, low morale, drug abuse and alcoholism. Stress is a major factor in heart disease, cancer, accidents and leads to premature death. Grossman Stress Management Skills Training can help you become more resilient in the face of life’s changes and challenges. Hypnosis is a scientifically proven method that decreases the stress response and can make you a winner over stress.

DOES HE WORK WITH THE MENTAL GAME OF GOLF? 
Golf truly is a mental game. When you don’t play well it’s because of tension and anxiety. Hypnosis counteracts stress and helps you relax physically and mentally. It allows your unconscious to take control during the time it takes to swing the club. You’ll play with self-con dence, and those great shots happen naturally. Results show that scores improve signi cantly. Hypnosis is the secret weapon that professionals have been using for years. Before he was 12 Tiger Wood’s father Earl hired Jay Brunza, a sports psychologist, to teach Tiger self-hypnosis. Now professional and college golfers use hypnosis as a routine part of their mental preparation. Grossman’s Mental Game of Golf Training gives you a pre-shot routine that lets you relax and play one shot at a time. You’ll play your best golf, whether in tournaments or with your friends, and no one will ever know you are using it unless you tell them.

Do you take insurance, and how does that work?
We require payment from you and we accept all major credit cards and PayPal, however you may be reimbursed by your insurance carrier or employment benefit provider. To determine if you have hypnotherapy coverage through your insurance carrier, the first thing you should do is call them.  Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers.  Some helpful questions you can ask them:
  • What are my hypnotherapy health benefits?
  • What is the coverage amount per hypnotherapy session?
  • How many hypnotherapy sessions does my plan cover?
  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician? 
 
Does what we talk about in hypnotherapy remain confidential?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and hypnotherapist. Successful hypnotherapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the hypnotherapist's office.   Every hypnotherapist should provide a written copy of their confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone.  This is called “Informed Consent”.  Sometimes, however, you may want your hypnotherapist to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team (your Physician, Naturopath, Attorney), but by law your hypnotherapist cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.
 
However, state law and professional ethics require hypnotherapists to maintain confidentiality except for the following situations:
1. Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to the authorities, including Child Protection and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources.
2. If the hypnotherapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threated to harm another person.
