Mandy, a Hypnobabies Instructor in Denver got this email from one of her students.

"I wanted to share a few experiences I've had recently with the Hypnosis practice and CD's.

I've been practicing a lot and using the CD's and it seems easier to relax every time I do it. I have RA and this generally effect my hands and wrists the most right now so every evening around 9 pm my hands swell up and I have intense pain in my wrists making it a challenge to find a comfortable sleeping position. I've been listening to the CD's and during the CD I can completely lose my sense of pain my hands—as if they are not there at all, when I come up from Hypnosis that pain is still there although not always as strong as before, so cool.

Additionally, I am a very nervous flier and I do fly often so I have been developing techniques to help me stay calm during take off and landing. Yesterday when I flew, I practiced …

 my finger drop and middle switch technique many times throughout the flight and I felt so relaxed and rested.

When it got close to landing I listened to the deepening track then turned the track off and continued using affirmations for the remainer of the landing- Deeper and deeper relaxed, Peaceful, Calm and Confident and it was amazing I was sitting with my eyes closed and smiling as the plane bumped along during a very windy landing.

The added benefit was that even though I got up at 3:30 am and went to bed quite late I felt rested and relaxed through out the whole day and did not feel over tired and cranky as I usually do on a flight day.

I just wanted to share becasue I am so excited and delighted that the Hypnosis seems to be working very well for me. I was talking with my co workers about my upcoming birth and choice to do a home birth and I really felt completely confident, empowered and enthusiastic (I was glowing) which is a significant shift from how I was feeling before our class began."
