“Today, hypnotherapists are rapidly becoming accepted members of the therapy community, and their services are sought by people seeking help with all manner of problems. Dave Berman, a clinical and medical hypnotist based in Arcata, said he gets patient referrals from doctors and therapists, as well as walk-in clients seeking a wide range of services.”
“In a study done by The University of Iowa, hypnosis is three times as effective for tobacco use cessation as “the patch” and fifteen times as effective as willpower alone. Another study published in the journal of Clinical and Consulting Psychology reports that hypnosis for weight loss is thirty times as effective as traditional methods. Other studies of hypnotherapy produce results ranging from recovery from surgery, lowered phantom limb pain, and seventy-seven percent success rate for drug addiction recovery.”
Dave Berman has written more than a dozen articles published in the Isis Scrolls Magazine, circulated throughout Northern California and Southern Oregon.
Dave also wrote a column about hypnosis, neuroscience and the mind/body connection for Communities at WashingtonTimes.com.
In association with Hypnodontist.com, Dave taught dental professionals “the language of ethical influence” to make patients more comfortable and dental practices more profitable through his monthly column for dental industry website DentistryIQ.com.
Dave’s articles have been featured in Unlimited Human!, the quarterly magazine of the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association.
“Though most of our contact has been only through amazing insights and email updates that you send and the occasional passing as I see you at Veteran Resource events, I HAVE to thank you! I believe I’ve been on your email list for nearly two years. In that time, not only have I continued my regular job serving Veterans at the College of the Redwoods campus, but I have also gone through the Mind-Body-Wellness/Transformational Psychology program at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. I have approximately 10 months remaining in the program. My first courses were in life coaching and I am now getting ready for hypnotherapy. As my awareness has opened, the words in each of your updates has resonated to my soul. During some of the more rigorous and challenging portions of the program, the Spirit seemed to gift me with words through your emails. I THANK you for being such an instrument of grace.”
