Everybody knows about stress, but not everybody knows what to do to relieve themselves from stress overload. Dr. Gary Flegal will give you the skills to reduce your stress and improve your current levels of health and well-being. “There is no mystery to stress,” says Dr. Flegal. “Stress has been called the modern epidemic because it plays a role in over 80% of our disease processes.” Learn state-of-the-art stress-reduction skills that you can begin putting into practice everyday. As Dr. Flegal reminds us, “Stress is not optional. It comes to us everyday. Stress management is a choice.” Participants will experience easy-to-learn skills to help in reducing the disease-causing effects of stress.

Introduction to Self-Hypnosis

The MIND is a powerful thing that all of us can learn to use more effectively. Self-Hypnosis is an incredible skill to aid in a variety of settings, including reducing fear of public speaking, improving performance in sports, improving quality of sleep, and quitting smoking. It is also useful for helping with reduction of pain, ranging from headaches to chronic pain and is useful as anesthesia for dental work. Dr. Flegal will help participants learn the basics of Self-Hypnosis and guide them into specifics for their areas of individual focus.

Hypnosis can be useful for:

  • Weight Control
  • Stop Smoking
  • Anger Management
  • Sleep Improvement
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Stuttering
  • Nail Biting
  • Migraine Headache
  • Chronic Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Anesthesia
  • Childbirth
  • Chemo Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Pre Surgery
  • Post Surgery
  • Public Speaking
  • Sports Performance
  • School Test Performance
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Irritable Bowel
  • Tinnitus
  • Dental Work
  • Sales Motivation
  • Impotence

Taking Control of Anger

One of the most powerful and dynamic emotions is Anger. Negatively directed anger results from a learned pattern of thinking and responding to stimuli in the world. But if something is learned, it can be “unlearned.” The process of Anger Management taught by Dr. Flegal is most effective when those involved realize the problem and are interested in helping themselves learn new patterns of thinking and behaving. Basic thought-recognition skills are taught in a fun, workshop setting that allows participants to practice new skills with surprisingly quick results. This is not impractical “pie-in-the-sky.” Real-world skills with major, life-changing results are quickly learned by those who have an interest and a willingness to learn new ways of responding to life situations.

Smoking Cessation

Smoking is one of the most common of the pseudo-stress management activities that people engage in. Dr. Flegal helps participants learn real stress management skills to replace the “fake” stress management provided by nicotine. A combination of techniques, including relaxation training, hypnosis, dietary suggestions, and behavioral changes makes this approach highly successful. Dr. Flegal developed the smoking cessation program for a major hospital in the 90’s, and his on-going training has refined the process into a highly successful program that can be effective in either one-on-one or group settings.

The Wellness Concept

Becoming “well” is so much more than just being “not sick.” Wellness involves taking responsibility for your own level of health and well-being. Learning to balance the stresses of modern life requires learning to think about health in a slightly different way. We live in a country that has no “Healthcare System” – only an “Illness Care System.” Everyone knows that our physicians and hospitals don’t really know how to help people become well, only how to “fix” them when they are ill. Dr. Flegal teaches what it takes to go to the next level by taking personal responsibility (self-care) for healthful practices that lead to a lifetime of wellness.
