We are both certified in several healing modalities — including hypnosis and Pranayama Breathwork. These modalities can be scheduled separately or together. We have found they complement each other very well.
A Breathwork session can be done either online or in-person at our San Diego location and hypnosis sessions are available via Zoom.
Please find descriptions below for each modality. To book a session, please send us a message through our contact page.
What is Breathwork?
Pranayama Breathwork is active meditation and conscious control of your breath which encourages stuck energy (emotions) to move and creates the opportunity for powerful healing to occur. This simple, yet effective technique, restores balance to your body, mind and soul, relieves stress, and helps to activate the subconscious mind. Activating your subconscious in this safe, effective manner is what allows true change to occur in your life by transforming limiting thoughts, beliefs and emotions.
During the process, the repetitive breath helps to neutralize your thoughts, draw more oxygen into the body and stimulate your hypothalamus gland as well as other centers/organs around the body. As the session progresses, the mind, body and ego melt away, and you’re able to engage with yourself on a much deeper, more intrinsic level than you’re used to.
To quote Dr. Richard P. Brown and Patricia L. Gerbarg, “Studies are revealing that, by changing the patterns of breathing, it is possible to restore balance to the stress response systems, calm an agitated mind, relieve symptoms of anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), improve physical health and endurance, elevate performance, and enhance relationships.”
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis isn’t something that is done to you. Instead, it’s triggering a process that happens inside you all the time.
Hypnosis involves slowing down your brain waves through visualization, triggering that hypnotic mindset, and allowing your subconscious mind to open in order to allow deeper healing to occur.
Our daily lives are driven by 95% subconscious programming and 5% of the conscious mind. Which is why it can be so frustrating trying to change a habit just through the conscious mind!
During this guided process, we’re able to get clarity on questions and situations where you feel stuck in life, allow healing to occur in the body, and even access past memories. Because you’re in a heightened state of focus and because we’re able to bypass the critical thinking brain, we’re able to create change at a much faster pace than just working on these issues consciously.
If this is something that calls to you, please email Christy through our contact page for a free consultation.
Breathwork and hypnosis are tools that have changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined. I’ve experimented with many modalities on my path to healing from childhood sexual trauma and breathwork and hypnosis have been an integral part of my healing.
As someone who had blocked out most of my memories of trauma, I needed to find something that allowed my subconscious to feel safe enough to feel these stuck emotions and ultimately release them. My own personal journey has led me to a deep understanding of the mind body connection as well as how the brain works in connection with trauma. I now know I was given these tools in order to help others in their healing journey.
I’ve used Breathwork to move through many challenges in my life. My first experience with Breathwork allowed me to heal a 20-year old wound by reconnecting and repairing a shattered relationship. The loss of this relationship caused feelings of guilt and judgement. The work allowed me to finally understand and release these feelings, forgive myself, start to mend the relationship and become more whole. This first experience has done more for me than I ever could have imagined.
I regularly use the breath to allow myself to feel more deeply and to release of the stresses of everyday life. It’s a tool to help us examine the feelings we’re not able to express through words. Along with regular mediation and other practices, it has become an incredibly valuable tool to break through the hidden patterns (shortcuts) the mind sets up in attempt to keep us safe, but may no longer be serving us.
When I arrived at Scott’s home for my breathwork session, I had no idea what to expect other than an “incredible experience”, as described to me by a friend. I was a little anxious but Scott did an excellent job of calming my nerves by walking me through the process and assuring me that we could stop or adjust at any time if I needed. The fast, repetitive breathing seemed impossible at first but Scott expertly guided through until I was no longer aware I was doing it.
I don’t want to give away too much of what happens next because the unexpectedness of the experience was so incredible, but the energy that radiated through me for hours after is also almost indescribable. I am so thankful to Scott for guiding me through this incredible journey and I can’t wait to do it again. Elizabeth Audiffred – San Diego, CA
My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Christy and Scott a few months ago. Jumped on the opportunity to have a breathing session with Scott and we loved it!! The experience was phenomenal! Never thought that the power of breathing would give me such an amazing feeling of euphoria borderline out of body experience… since that experience, we have become more conscious breathers. Thank you Scott! Looking forward to our next session. Chris Sanchez – San Diego, CA
I had no idea what to expect from a hypnotherapy session, so I was definitely surprised about what came up during one with Christy. Christy has a very soothing and relaxing voice which really helped me get into the necessary healing state. I felt very supported by and comfortable with her when I became overwhelmed with emotion at a few points. It is fascinating how much wisdom our subconscious holds and I highly recommend letting Christy be the one who guides you there! Ashley Whelan – San Diego, CA
I recently had the pleasure of taking a breathwork session with Scott. Having never done a breathwork session previously, I was originally nervous at the idea, but Scott quickly put me at ease with information and reassurance. He told me exactly what would happen to my body as I did the breathwork, as well as all the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits that come with the practice. During the session itself, Scott was a calming guide as he helped me ground myself, stay immersed, and experience a deeper understanding of breathwork.
Since coming out of that session, I’ve felt motivated to continue with my breathwork, and have experienced profound moments as a result. A session with Scott is highly recommended! Taylor Herperger – Alberta, Canada
