Lisa Boulton, CCHT

Lisa Boulton earned her credentials in hypnosis as a Master Hypnotist, Hypnotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist through the International Hypnosis Federation. She continues to study her craft through courses, conventions and yearly retreats. 


Lisa's passion is in helping others to understand the conflicts they carry from past life memories in order to resolve the problems they struggle with in present time and recapture their own peace and personal wisdom. As well, she works with people to assist in understanding their spiritual journey and birth vision. 


Lisa first became interested in Hypnosis when she was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. She was taught how to use self-hypnosis to reduce stress and improve healing. It worked so well she decided to write a children's book called Toby Bear and the Healing Light for kids who were coping with cancer, while she was going through her own treatments. Later she decided to become a Clinical Hypnotherapist so she could assist people on their own healing journey. 


Lisa has found hypnosis to be very helpful for people coping with Parkinson's to reduce tremors, improve sleep and cognitive abilities. She was a Peer Navigator at her local hospital to assist newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, teach them self-hypnosis and assist in navigating their treatments. She has also spoken to organizations and taught hypnosis at Sierra College.

  

Our greatest truths are deep within us, not outside of us in a sometimes chaotic world. All we have to do is go within to meet them, and in doing so meet with our own magnificence. 

Brief History of Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy dates back to the earliest recorded history in Egypt, Greece, India, Persia, China and even England as a way to evoke the mind/body, spirit/emotion connection, to “go within and find out”, and to bridge understanding. Often the person assisting with the hypnosis was called a Shaman, the root meaning of the word shaman or saman is “to know”.  In ancient Egypt one could visit the Sleep Temple in Luxor and be pampered with massage and remedies while your hypnotist/shaman/priest or priestess would assist you as you drifted off into a restful state using ritual and incantation. 


Today hypnotherapists generally use soothing words and soft music to assist you into a theta brain wave state called a trance. In these brain wave frequencies it's easier to relieve stress and facilitate deep relaxation and mental clarity as well as many other beneficial results.  Scientists have measured these brain wave states using magnetic resonance and Electroencephalographs and concur with the benefits. 


In hypnosis a person is relaxed and highly focused. This allows the client to process information, and create healthy associations to  memories or past experiences.


Hypnosis is enjoyable and the client is always in control and can remember everything upon coming out of trance, often the results can be carried on and open other important doors long after your session. Sometimes one session is all that’s needed, and other times more sessions are required for optimal results. It’s always up to the client; it’s always a very deeply relaxing experience.
