Hypnotherapy and Your Well-Being

Utilizing the power of your mind is an extremely important element in your health and well-being. Your mind is a significant factor in the healing process, in compliment to your primary treatment, and even to help support the potential for conditions to go into a state of remission.

This is evidenced in numerous hypnosis research studies that demonstrate the power of your mind and your state of confidence and the peace you hold in impacting and influencing your health. A general state of well-being will allow your creativity to bloom, and reduce the chaos, stress, and anxiety in your mind thus helping you gain clarity, direction, and achieve the goals that you have established for yourself, and your life.

Hypnosis Is Embraced by the Medical World

Hypnosis is an established and highly respectful modality to be used for therapeutic and behavioral change as well as complimentary medical support. The most highly respected organizations have endorsed its use in many health conditions. Professional and competitive sports have used Self-Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) for many years to accelerate progress and skill in the game.

The American Medical Association(AMA) approved the use of Hypnosis in 1958. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) endorsed Hypnosis in 1951. The Mayo Clinic has endorsed hypnosis for complementary care for many years, as have many health and wellness professionals who have incorporated hypnosis as a successful adjunct tool for providing therapeutic support.

Uses of Hypnotherapy

The benefits of hypnotherapy are numerous. I have helped clients for 40+ years with pre-and post-surgery, challenged pregnancies, infertility, chronic and acute pain, and several medical diagnoses. This also includes cancer, diabetes, fibromyalgia, stroke, high blood pressure, weight loss, lack of appetite, pain, stress and anxiety, fears and phobias, white coat syndrome, and more.

I’ve trained with the most popular hospital-based cancer support program that offers hypnosis.  

Doctors have referred their patients to me, as well as being invited into their medical clinic to work with their patients weekly.  I've seen patients in hospitals and assisted living centers. When appropriate, I will facilitate sessions in homes, hospitals and assisted living and retirement centers.

I hold advanced specializations in the following:

  • Pain Management
  • Stress Relief
  • Weight Loss and Management
  • Eating Disorders
  • Sleep Enhancement
  • Hypno-Oncology for Cancer

  • Fear of Needles and Medical Procedures
  • Pre- and Post-Surgery
  • Supporting the healing process of fibromyalgia, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, ongoing viral conditions, chronic pain, and more.

  • Acute and  chronic pain

Alaya is so knowledgeable and capable. My sessions with her have had an immeasurable positive impact on my daily life and relationships. I love that she takes a whole person approach along with having a variety of skills and tools to support me. The skills I have learned I can use independently and can continue to build. I feel like I have a new friend in my corner!

If I could rate Alaya and her incredibly powerful and empowering talent higher than 5 stars, I absolutely would. I met with her both in person, on the phone, and online for less than 10 sessions and I was enlightened and transformed. I'd spent many of my 40 years with a fear that I could hardly speak about. It was irrational and embarrassing. But Alaya helped me to speak about my fear and give myself the power that I had been giving it for far too long. Because of this, I am able to pursue my new career with a strong and legitimate confidence. I recommend anyone who seeks gentle and empowered change to meet with Alaya to make a plan for your future.

"I had been a smoker for 23 years. After ONE session with Alaya, I was no longer a smoker, and I'm still not. I do not desire, crave, or even think about cigarettes. I decided to continue our sessions and work on other things that have challenged me in life. Not only has Alaya helped through hypnotherapy, she has counseled me in general. I have made better decisions with her help and have been able to manage a lot of difficulties in my life. I'm so grateful for Alaya. I wish I could give her 10 stars!"

"I really feel like it was meant to be for me to connect with Alaya. Circumstances brought me to her and then I had to put meeting with her on hold. But later something drew me back to get in touch with her. I am so glad I did. It was at such a difficult time and I really needed the encouragement to rise up from the situation I was in. She gave me support and tools to use and today I have met Many of my goals! She is an amazing counselor, woman, human."

"You’re a Miracle Worker! I really enjoyed the flight. I was able to connect in with people that love to fly and it was awesome. Reminded me of when I was a teenager and did love flying. Have you thought of teaching Hypnotherapy? You would be really good."

"This is Patti, Luke’s wife. I want to share how much I truly appreciate the help Luke has gotten from meeting with you. You are a Blessing, not just to Luke but our whole family. We have had so much going on and change, and losing him is not an option. Our kids will be moving, having bedrooms, leaving the only school and friends they have had, so for him to have continued support will help them also. Thank You! From my heart for all you have done, may God Bless you ♡"

"I am so happy in my decision to see Alaya. I did a lot of research before choosing a hypnotherapist, and Alaya far and away seemed the most qualified of the many I investigated. ... Now, knowing Alaya for the wonderful, supportive person she is and what hypnotherapy can do. I had been struggling for several years with weight gain. ...I turned to Alaya in hopes that she could help me focus on the things I knew I needed to be doing for my health. She quickly made me feel comfortable, and confident in my choice to come and see her. She spent a lot of time getting to know me and my goals, and I felt no judgement from her of my situation. ...After my very first session, I felt more clear and ready to achieve success in weight loss. The pounds have quickly begun to come off. ... Through hypnosis, she has helped reinforce positive feelings of achievement and curb negative habits. I always leave feeling refreshed, energized and ready to take on new challenges to come. Seeing Alaya really helps me feel focused and just good about life. I’m so glad I took the leap of faith. I would encourage anyone struggling with weight loss, or any other issue to talk to Alaya. She will be very honest with you, and will help you in every way."

- Erin Englehart, Medford, Oregon

"I feel really lucky that I’ve found Alaya. She is an amazing person and gifted therapist. She listens and gives me mindful advice and her soothing voice always takes me to a peaceful place. She gave me courage and strength to challenge my fertility issue. After a series of sessions, I was pregnant and gave birth to my precious son. I am not good at writing and I wish I could express my feelings better, because I want everybody to know how special you are to me, Alaya. I can’t give enough thanks to Alaya. She helped my dream come true, and I will continue seeing her."

- Sayaka, Grants Pass, Oregon

"I feel so fortunate to have found Alaya. I was really struggling with my healing journey from toxic mold and was starting to spiral into hopelessness when I found her. My mind was scattered, my emotions a roller coaster, I was constantly judging myself and I was having so much head and body pain. I felt like a mess and was getting lost in my symptoms. After the very first session I can honestly say something just clicked into place and I had an immediate feeling of peace and calm. Suddenly my health situation didn't seem so dire and I had a restored faith in my body's own strength. Every session afterwards was just as wonderful. She gave me incredible tools to use everyday and shared her wisdom and insights which have helped me believe in myself again. From the very first moment I felt so at ease with her and felt safe and comfortable to be my authentic self. My stalled healing is back on track and I can feel myself improving everyday! I will absolutely see her again when needed. She is a gem in the Rogue Valley and we are so fortunate to have her!"

"We had three quit nicotine hypnosis sessions this year. I did quit, and it's been six months now and I've had a revelation. I have a no craving. None. Ever. The only difference between every other failed attempt to quit nicotine and my present success is you. There has been absolutely no temptation. I feel great and am so grateful to you."
