Hawaii hypnotherapist's Hypnosis Audio Store offers drugless tools for catching z's

Honolulu, Hawaii (MMD Newswire) April xx 2011 - From the Aloha State comes encouraging news for those who are having trouble reaching the Delta state - that all-important brainwave state that characterizes deep and restful sleep. "The Delta state is essential for the healing and restoration of the mind and body," explains Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Mindy Ash, owner of the Hypnosis Audio Store (www.Hypnosisaudiostore.com) in Honolulu. Yet in our frenetic modern world, deep healing sleep eludes all too many people, to the detriment not only of the sleep-deprived individuals but also to society as a whole. Sleeplessness can negatively affect health, safety, and job performance, but most folks tend to accept their chronic slumber deficit as the price they must pay for having a busy life. Ash says that to the contrary, people don't have to sacrifice their sleep and their health. She suggests that hypnosis or self-hypnosis could very well provide the keys to those elusive z's.

These days there is no shortage of advice on how to sleep better; the May 2011 "Readers' Digest" features a compilation of suggestions to help the afflicted. The media are also full of advertisements about everything from prescription and nonprescription sleep aids to expensive mattresses that vow to have consumers sleeping like babies. And sleep experts regale the bleary-eyed with the standard advice about not ingesting caffeine after a certain hour, not watching TV or using their laptop in bed, sleeping in a totally dark and very cool room, and so forth. But almost none of the advisors or ads mention hypnosis.

In fact many people still look with suspicion on hypnosis, thinking of it as something dangerous that makes the hypnotized subject do bizarre or embarrassing things he or she wouldn't ordinarily do. Others dismiss it as mere stage magic, good for an evening's entertainment but of no practical use in daily life. Not so, says Ash, adding that since the American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950s, many thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, lose weight, relieve stress, build self-esteem, accelerate healing, manage pain and otherwise improve their lives. Indeed, people are using hypnosis and self-hypnosis for more than just health problems; they're using the tools taught by Ash and her colleagues to increase confidence, end procrastination, enhance their sales techniques, even improve their golf games.

Accordingly, Ash offers a series of audio products through her online store, addressing specific issues ranging from stress relief to sales success to confident pubic speaking to golf mastery. However, she has noticed that one result she keeps hearing about from her customers is a dramatic improvement in their sleep since they began listening to her audio products. "For instance, I have so many people tell me that the confidence CD helps them get a good night's sleep," Ash says. "I have had clients tell me that they were able to minimize or eliminate sleep aid medication just by listen to the hypnosis audio."

Ash says that clients are reporting other benefits as well, from increased confidence (she says that people can easily improve their confidence level in a mere 22 minutes), to better health, career success, and improved finances. Yet Ash, who writes her own scripts and records them in her voice, refuses to make the exaggerated claims that are common among some marketers of similar products. She does not, for example, promise that people who purchase her audio products will become instant millionaires or that they will create the life of their dreams without any effort on their part. Nor does she recommend hypnosis or hypnotherapy as a substitute for medical care when needed. "If you have an ailment or physical complaint, you should first see a medical doctor for consent to use hypnotherapy," she stresses. "Hypnosis and hypnotherapy teach skills for self-improvement. The effectiveness depends on the client."

What Ash does emphasize is that learning to focus the mind is the first step to making changes and improvements in one's life. Alleviation of stress and improvement of self-confidence can certainly lead to bigger and better things, but people have to take that first step.

Some people search for answers in self-help books or seminars and workshops, often with disappointing results. Ash has nothing against workshops and seminars, and teaches them herself on occasion, but sometimes, she says, more specific tools are needed. "Many people are not aware of how powerful our mind is when we focus it in the right direction," says Ash. "The scripts I've created for my audio products help listeners by filtering out the stresses and stimuli of their hectic lives and focusing on what they want to bring into their lives."

That's why it isn't so far-fetched to conceive of a client improving a golf game after listening to Mindy Ash's Golf Excellence Package, nor is it beyond the realm of possibility for a chronic procrastinator to get a handle on time management after listening to the End Procrastination Package. Unsolicited client testimonials (http://hypnosisaudiostore.com/testimonials.html)on Ash's web site point to the effectiveness of the type of mind focus she teaches.

For those who have the means to travel to paradise, Mindy Ash also offers in-person hypnosis sessions to help people deal with the stresses of daily life or to make specific improvements in their lives. She says she has helped thousands of people make positive changes in their lives through educational presentations and one-on-one sessions. "I have experience with a broad variety of therapeutic modalities, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Regression Techniques, both Basic and Advanced Suggestion Therapy, and the Core Transformation Process," she says. She has also studied Medical Support Hypnotherapy with Dr. Robert Sapien as well as with Tim Simmerman, author of "Medical Hypnotherapy, Volume 1," and owner of the prestigious Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which is licensed by the New Mexico State Board of Education.

Ash is also certified by the International Hypnosis Federation as a Smoking Cessation Specialist, and is a certified Emotional Intelligence coach, as well as a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Leadership for Management and Carnegie Advantage courses. She has lectured on hypnosis and conducted sales staff training for various private companies, hospitals, and universities in Hawaii, Georgia, and Southern California.

People who can't make it to Hawaii for a one-on-one with Ash can avail themselves of her audio products, which can either be downloaded directly or shipped as CDs or packages, with prices ranging from $20.00 to $80.00. And for folks who have tried everything from pricey prescription drugs to designer mattresses but still can't get a good night's sleep, a hypnosis audio just might provide the missing links to those forty winks.
