How to Become Pain Free with Hypnosis
Hypnosis can help you lower or maybe even eliminate your pain completely, without doctor visits, opioids, or surgeries. "Hypnotherapy offers relief in 75% of cases" according to Bottom Line Inc. Come to this meetup and experience first-hand what hypnosis can do to help you reduce your discomfort and get back to living the life you used to have before you hurt so much. Brain scans show that hypnosis increases the communication between the mind and the body. And since all pain is processed in the brain, working with your subconscious can have a gigantic influence on how you feel. During the meetup, you will learn how to take advantage of how pain actually works to easily lower your discomfort. You will also experience a group hypnosis technique that you can also practice at home when you have difficult sensations. This meetup is hosted by Mahesh Grossman, CCHt of Berkeley Hypnosis & Pain Management . Here is a sampling of what some clients have said after pain management sessions with Mahesh: “When I saw Mahesh, my back was in so much discomfort that I was hunched over. At the end of our session, I was standing straight for the first time in days. Hypnosis really works for pain.” ~Cameron Foley., Oakland "Mahesh, when you told me that my physical pains would go away, I doubted that was possible. My knee– wait, where did it hurt? And my shoulder is virtually pain free. Miracle!” ~ David Walton, Oakland “After 3 years of suffering from TMJ syndrome and jaw pain, Mahesh was able to help me experience complete relief in just one session.” ~Jessica W., Berkeley “I’ve been to other hypnotherapists, but my three sessions with Mahesh were the most successful I’ve ever had. He helped me stop smoking, and to eliminate my sciatica pain and my neuropathy. I would recommend him to anybody and I would go back to him if I had any kind of angst, whether it was physical, mental or emotional.” ~Maria I., Oakland If pain is a problem for you and you'd like to feel better, sign up for this meetup today.

What we're about

Can hypnosis really help you become pain free, or can it (at least) significantly lower your pain?

For most people, the answer is yes. "Hypnotherapy offers relief in 75% of cases,"
according to Bottom Line Inc.

How is this possible?

Brain scans show that hypnosis enhances the parts of the brain that deepen the connections between the mind and the body.

This connection is the reason hypnosis is so effective for pain management.

Mark Jensen, a University of Washington School of Medicine psychologist has performed brain scans on clients who were under hypnosis to control pain. “During hypnosis, “ he told livescience.com, “you can ask people to imagine that the sensation that usually induces extreme pain is minor that it isn’t bothersome and you immediately see a decrease in activity in the prefrontal cortex and those other parts. In other words, my patients change the meaning that their brains give to the pain.”

Or as William Ray, a Penn State psychology professor who has also done EEG brain studies, says in the Penn State News: “ . . . hypnosis removes the emotional experience of pain,” he says, ”while allowing the sensory sensation to remain. Thus, you notice you were touched but not that it hurt.”

When you understand how pain works, this makes more sense.

All pain is processed in the brain. Without a brain, you might not feel anything. Imaging studies show that the sensory cortex, where you register the initial wave of pain, has less to do with how much you hurt than the parts of your brain (like the prefrontal cortex and the thalamus) that process your emotional reaction and give the meaning to what is happening.

In other words, how you feel about your pain has a lot to do with how much pain you feel.

Join this meetup to be introduced to hypnosis techniques to lower and possibly eliminate your pain. There will be group hypnosis sessions for pain management and you will learn self-hypnosis techniques you can practice at home.

This meetup is hosted by Mahesh Grossman, founder of Berkeley Hypnosis & Pain Management, who has a great deal of success using hypnosis to help clients relieve their pain. Here are what some clients say about him:
