When the National Guild of Hypnotists hosts their twentieth annual convention this summer, Tom Nicoli's seminars on using hypnosis to help people lose weight and keep it off will be among the 280 workshops scheduled. Tom Nicoli's hypnosis CD's and hypnosis weight loss programs, profiled on NBC's Dateline and ranked 5-Star by Shape Magazine, have helped thousands of people in more than 30 countries achieve and maintain weight loss or accomplish other life goals.
Tom Nicoli, a board certified hypnotist, public speaker, certified instructor, and published author, is plain spoken about what hypnosis can and can't do as a weight loss tool. Nicoli cautions people not to expect hypnosis to magically melt away pounds, speed metabolism, or cause them to lose weight while they sleep. Weight loss, he says, happens when you eat less food, eat better food, and get more exercise. Nicoli explains that hypnosis enables people to breakdown internal roadblocks that get in the way of eating right and exercising properly. Tom Nicoli says, "Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind and works to help the subconscious mind lay the groundwork for healthier behaviors and increased motivation. The effectiveness of hypnosis is proven by the results of thousands of people who have used hypnotism successfully to achieve and maintain weight loss and a healthier lifestyle."
Historically, the practice of hypnotism dates to the 1700's. Over the years, hypnotism has gained acceptance by much of the mainstream medical community as an effective tool for helping patients deal with pain, stress, undesirable behavior patterns, and even as a replacement or supplement to traditional anesthesia. Dr. Gordon Peacock Harper, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School described one of Nicoli's lectures to medical school students by saying, "(Tom Nicoli) is an expert in his field. He speaks of his field with a passion and has a true desire to better integrate the field of hypnotherapy and medicine. He opened many of the student's minds to the possibility of the mind-body connection." Dr. Harper added, "Nicoli deals in a straightforward and honest manner. His presentation was thought provoking, stimulating and made a large impression."
