When a patient is in pain, stressed, fearful or otherwise emotional, they are in a light state of trance and are highly suggestible. The words you speak can cause harm or help them heal. Your words can be a powerful force in changing their attitude, mood and behavior.

Learn useable tools and language skills to gain compliance and help your patient learn to manage their pain and stress. We will be demonstrating and practicing techniques throughout the class so you can be confident in applying them with your patients.


  • Understand the seriousness of the opioid epidemic and why hypnosis and hypnotic language are viable options
  • Explore the science of trance
  • Effectively use language to change attitude, responses and behavior
  • Learn NLP and hypnotic techniques in your day to day routine
