What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a state of relaxation and focused attention during which the subconscious mind is highly responsive to suggestion. What can be accomplished in the hypnotic state when suggestions are developed specifically for you and your desired results can be simply amazing!  

Most people naturally enter light states of hypnosis throughout the day. In fact, research shows that 95% of people can be hypnotized to some extent.

  • Have you ever become so engrossed in a book or a movie that you lost track of time?
  • Perhaps you have been so engaged in a task that someone startled you or you didn't notice they were talking to you.
  • Maybe you've had the experience of driving and suddenly realized you missed your regular exit...but can't remember passing it.

These are all light hypnotic states, and if you have had experiences like this, you can be hypnotized. In fact, the main requirements for allowing yourself to be hypnotized are that you are willing to be hypnotized, you have some degree of imagination, and you trust the person who will be hypnotizing you.

Frequently Asked Questions

You cannot be made to do anything that you don't want to do or say anything that you don't want to say during hypnosis. You will remain in control of your own thoughts and actions. All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis, but during your session, Dr. Kane will guide you into deep relaxation and a hypnotic state where your attention will be focused, leading you to the rapid and dramatic changes you seek.

Your hypnosis visit will begin with a detailed discussion about the issue in your life that you want to change, taking into account the physical, emotional, and mental components. During this discussion, Dr. Kane will help you to draw on your resources and strengths in other areas of your life to achieve the future vision that you seek. Many people experience an "aha" moment even before beginning hypnosis.
She will then determine whether you are a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner to customize your session for maximum results. Any questions you have about hypnosis will be answered before you decide to continue into the hypnosis session.
While you rest in a comfortable recliner, Dr. Kane will prepare your hypnosis session based on the information you discussed. She will give you a brief explanation of the hypnotic process and guide you into a state of relaxation. She will continue with an induction, using words and imagery, and test to make sure that you have reached a level where you will be receptive to the hypnotic suggestions designed specifically for you and your needs.
Once you have reached a state where your subconscious mind is more receptive, Dr. Kane will weave words together, using hypnotic suggestions that will help you make the changes you seek. When the session ends, you will open your eyes at your own pace, feeling relaxed and refreshed.
You will have a brief discussion after the session during which you can comment and ask questions. Then you and Dr. Kane will create an action plan to reinforce the hypnosis session. Most people leave the hypnosis session feeling more in control, and excited about the changes they know they can make.

The entire visit lasts about 90 minutes, and the actual hypnosis portion usually lasts from 30 to 45 minutes.

You won't get stuck in a hypnotic state. During hypnosis, Dr. Kane will serve as your guide, and you will follow her voice. If she stopped speaking for a while, you would simply come out of hypnosis or fall asleep for a short time.

Most people feel a deep sense of calm and relaxation while in a hypnotic state. Some people describe a sense of floating, while others describe a heavy feeling. Some people remain completely focused on Dr. Kane's voice throughout the session, while others' minds seem to wander in and out of awareness. Some people will move or shift during hypnosis, while others remain completely still.

As people come out of hypnosis, they usually feel incredibly relaxed and rested. There is often a sense of time distortion, and they feel like little time has passed.

It is best to wear loose and comfortable clothing that allows you to relax and breathe deeply. If you tend to get cold while resting, you may want to wear warmer clothes. You will have a blanket and pillows to arrange around you for comfort during your session. However, comfort isn't a requirement for a successful hypnosis session - it just adds to your enjoyment of the session. In most group hypnosis sessions, people wear regular clothing and sit in upright chairs, and still reap the benefits of hypnosis.
The number of times that you require hypnosis for the results you seek depends on the nature and complexity of the issue, and sometimes it is related to your expectations. For example, becoming a healthy NON-smoker through hypnosis can take just one session - unless you are convinced that you need two sessions! On the other hand, some issues like weight loss can be more complicated and multi-factorial. For best results, a sedentary couch potato who overeats unhealthy foods and hasn't exercised in years would require multiple sessions to address the different components of weight loss.
Some people choose to return for sessions weeks or months later - to reinforce their last session, to address a different component of their issue, or because they found hypnosis to be so successful that they wish to tackle other challenges with hypnosis.

Patient Reviews

Anna O.

“I wish I had gone in sooner! I threw out my back, and thought it would get better with a little TLC and time. A month later, I ran out of patience. My friend recommended Dr. Kane, so I scheduled an appointment. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt. I’m continuing to go for preventative care, and each time, she has given me helpful exercises and tips. The staff is great, too. In addition to running a great practice, they are all remarkably friendly and fun. Can’t recommend Dynamic enough!”

Ann L.

(Regarding Hypnosis) "Just broke into the next "decade" down on the scale today. Was aiming for it. Took a skirt back to seamstress yesterday - it was way too big. I was very pleased last weekend when we had company I didn't pull out all my old fav recipes to indulge like a crazy woman and make them do the same. We did healthy smoothies, light lunches, etc. I didn't sabotage myself or them. Now THAT is a breakthrough. Again, the one word that I feel separates this experience from all the other times, is a sense of calm and peace and being kind to myself. I don't seem to badger myself with trying to be perfect. Thanks again for your tips and expertise."

Pat G.

I went to Dr. Kane last week for hypnosis to help with my snacking and over-eating problems. It's amazing how much it has helped! It really works. Yes, I have been tempted to snack, but she gave me cues to help me overcome that old habit! Fantastic!

Charlie W.

“Thank you, Dr. Kane! I suffered with pain in the front of my thighs for about a year and a half. My primary care doctor sent me for a combination of x-rays, CT scans, and MRI's for both knees and both hips. Nothing was tested for my back. The final solution from my doctor was to "take Tylenol;" you can imagine how well that worked. When I received a letter saying you were going back into private practice, I called immediately to make an appointment. After the first treatment, I had immediate relief. Then the few follow-up treatments have kept me pain free. You have really changed my life. Thank you!”

Elizabeth T.

“None of the medicines I tried helped my sinus pain. But after my first acupuncture treatment from Dr. Kane, I had immediate relief that lasted for months!”

Sherri B.

“After three knee surgeries, and constant knee discomfort and swelling, I decided to give acupuncture a try. I was amazed at the benefits I received after only a few weeks of treatment from Dr. Kane. I had a noticeable improvement in the degree of flexibility and agility in my knee. I also had a substantial improvement in the amount of swelling in the area. I recommend acupuncture for anyone who has an area of discomfort!”

Mackenzie M.

“Dr. Kane is AMAZING. I had my first hypnosis session with her a few weeks ago and I am honestly blown away with the results. She is such a genuine and caring person and the effects of her care have been profound. I feel stronger and more powerful and have a deeper sense of ease and peace (exactly what I needed). If you are looking for a compassionate and skilled healer, look no further. Not only is she a great chiropractor, but combined with acupuncture, hypnosis, and her huge knowledge of nutrition and healing - she's the best!”

Natalie K.

“I did a hypnosis session with Dr. Kane and it was fantastic. I asked her for help with motivation with writing. It is a hobby of mine that I'd like to turn into something more, but always make excuses as to why I can't, in particular that I don't have time. After our session, not only have I made time to write daily, but my attitude toward time has transformed. Instead of feeling like time is constantly running out, I feel like time is my opportunity with which to do whatever I want.”

Kathy H.

“I am elated at how HEALTHY I feel on SHAPE ReClaimed! As exciting as is my WEIGHT LOSS, the elimination of the INFLAMMATION in my body is even more astonishing!!! For months before beginning SHAPE ReClaimed, I had been in pain, but within 3 days of being on this program, my pain completely disappeared!!! This is HUGE as my pain was very troublesome and worrisome. I always look forward to my appointments with Dr. Kane. She adjusts me with the ProAdjuster, which taps on my spine rather than "popping" it. I feel even more amazing after my adjustments!! Thank you, Dr. Kane!! I feel like a new woman and I could not have been as successful without your constant encouragement and expertise!!!”

Kristi D.

“Dr. Jennifer is an amazing chiropractor. So knowledgeable in so many areas of chiropractic care. I have been going to Dr. Jennifer for over 10 years. I love the ProAdjuster that she uses, which has really helped me. She was really able to give me relief from chronic neck and back issues. She also keeps in touch with me with reminders to come see her. She also does acupuncture and wellness. There's no one better.”

Carlysle G.

“Dr. Kane is unlike any doctor I've ever had. She always tries to do whatever she can to help with my journey. And she sincerely means it. She is compassionate, encouraging, and honest. Her energy is great and she truly helps make me realize the positive in any negative situation right away. So thankful to have her as my Shape practitioner and chiropractor!”

Dianne G.

“I came in to see Dr. Kane feeling very tense and fatigued. She did acupuncture, and I literally felt the energy flowing. I couldn't believe how great I felt!”

Stacy B.

“Cannot recommend Dr. Kane enough. Very caring and professional with a magic touch. She saved my weekend!!”

Alyssa C.

“I first came to Dr. Kane with a severe migraine. After one treatment I felt amazing and the migraine went away! Dr. Kane goes out of her way to ensure the health of her patients and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a chiropractor.”

Patty M.

“Dr. Kane's acupuncture treatment has helped tremendously with my allergies and headaches due to sinus pressure. I can't wait to visit her at her new location.”

Cliff P.

“I have been suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for eight years. I have been to many medical doctors and specialists and all I get is another drug to try. I have taken everything available and still no relief. After acupuncture treatments with Dr. Kane, my IBS has been absolutely no problem. While acupuncture cannot cure IBS, it has certainly normalized my system. This seems to have done the deed. I have been without symptoms for five months, and have had no flare-ups.”

Mary A.

“I love getting adjusted with the ProAdjuster! I've had back problems for most of my life, and finally learned that regular chiropractic adjustments keep me out of pain and functioning well. I knew how much chiropractic adjustments really helped me, but I admit that I somewhat dreaded them because of the twisting and cracking. But ever since I was referred to Dr. Kane and she adjusted me with the ProAdjuster, I actually look forward to my appointments!”

Violet L.

“Extremely caring. Dr. Kane treated my long-term allergies of more than 30 years. Now I am inhaler free!”

Brigid A.

“I have found such relief since trying acupuncture. After just one meeting with Dr. Kane, I felt a big difference in my sinuses. I met with her a few more times and have not experienced any sinus problems. I also spoke with her about how tired I felt all the time. Dr. Kane measured different points on my body and treated certain areas. I finally have my energy back. I am so surprised at how good I feel!”

Kaleen C.

“Dr. Kane has helped me so much with all of my joints. I have been treated by a chiropractor for many years, being adjusting in many different ways. I have found the method Dr. Kane uses, the ProAdjuster, to be pain free and superior to other methods.”

Monica H.

“Dr. Kane is the type of healer who has the ability to assist her patients in their healing journey to wellness due to her talent and variety of skills.......but also because she has walked her own healing journey with great triumph. What a blessing to have all these amazing gifts in a caring professional like Dr. Kane.”

Diane L.

“I love the ProAdjuster! It relaxes my muscles along with my adjustment. The two things together have really helped my chronic headaches!!”

Patti H.

“I think I may have had the best adjustment ever and I have been getting them since I was 12 years old! When I left your office I went water walking and walked faster and farther than I ever have. My friends could not keep up with me! I felt so good that if there had been more time I could have done 10 more laps! Last night was the same. Even just walking down the hall at work – I am walking faster and feeling more “freedom” in my hips and legs. It almost feels like my hips have been released and I can stretch out my legs further. Anyway, thank you for your kind and gentle care.”

CiCi B.

“The ProAdjuster has changed my life. I love the soft subtle tapping and no popping. My favorite area is on top of my head, the Chakra spot, it brings instant JOY to me. The way that Dr. Kane speaks into your life as you sit comfortably and have your adjustment. She has such a sweet and calming spirit. Thank you so much!”

Candy R.

“I met Dr. Jennifer Kane over a decade ago. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants natural treatment. Her adjustments are flawless, and I love the ProAdjuster! Dr. Kane treats her patients with kindness and compassion.”

Joyce W.

“My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Kane for several years. She is kind, compassionate and very thorough in both her chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. We would highly recommend Dr. Kane.”
