New York, NY (PRWEB) December 28, 2007
On January 4th, 2008 Certified Hypnosis Practitioners from all over the world will join to together for World Hypnotism Day, a special day dedicated to educating the public, the media and their health care communities about the many benefits of working with a Certified Hypnosis Professional.
According to Michael Ellner, an internationally prominent Certified Hypnosis Practitioner and Pain Relief Educator, "There is an urgent need for World Hypnotism Day because there are tens of millions of people who could be helped to feel better, heal faster and be more effective who are not utilizing this safe, effective and affordable approach to relieving both psychic and physical pain."
There is considerable scientific evidence that hypnosis can help reduce, even eliminate pain. "With the well known dangers of using pain killers," Ellner says, "one would think that hypnosis, acupuncture, chiropractic medicine, and other healing arts would take their rightful place in the anthology of pain treatment."
However, both the media and the medical establishment have perpetuated misconceptions about the practice and nature of hypnosis. As a result, many people believe that being hypnotized means losing control when, in fact, hypnosis is about helping people take control.
New Year's Resolutions such as stopping smoking and managing weight, chronic problems like the pain of arthritis, or even pre-operative fears, can be effectively treated by self-hypnosis - with the guidance of a certified hypnosis professional.
Ellner maintains his private hypnosis practice in NYC. He enjoys working as part of health care and wellness teams as well as a stand alone hypnosis practitioner. Ellner will be teaching advanced hypnosis classes in Newport Beach (CA), (Daytona Beach, FL), Marlborough, (MA), Las Vegas (NV), Boerne (TX), and New York City and State throughout 2008.
World Hypnotism Day was conceived and sponsored by The National Guild of Hypnotists in association with The Academy of Professional Hypnosis, The Association to Advance Ethical Hypnosis, Die Freie Gesellschaft für Hypnose e.V. (Germany), The Hypnosis Educational Council International, The Hypnosis Information Network, The International Association of Counselors and Therapists, The International Hypnological Association, The International Medical And Dental Hypnosis Association, The National Association of Certified Hypno Counselors, The National Association of Clergy Hypnotherapists, The National Federation of Hypnotists OPEIU AFL/CIO, The National Federation of Neuro Linguistic Psychology, The Ontario Association of Hypnotherapists (Canada) and The National Council for Hypnotherapy (England).
Ellner can speak extensively about how hypnosis can help people stay focused on improving their health, lives and careers. Michael Ellner is available for interview.
