12 Hudson Valley Parent n November 2017 ME TIME ! Just For Women Heal with hypnosis Michael Salerno, owner of Mid-Hudson Valley Hypnosis and hypnotist seeing clients in Ulster and Dutchess county locations, talks about hypnosis and a client's mind in terms of computers. He says, "Think of the subconscious mind as a computer. Just like any computer, the subconscious mind can be programmed, reprogrammed or even updated with new "software" through hypnotic suggestions." Hypnosis has been around for hundreds of years, yet there are still many misconceptions surrounding it. Salerno wishes to debunk some of these myths and says, "It's from movies where hypnosis is often thought of or portrayed as a loss of awareness or control. The opposite is true. It's a heightening of awareness and it's really a process that helps you take back control. The ways in which hypnosis can enhance and improve someone's life are almost limitless, according to Salerno. He regularly sees clients for things such as smoking cessation, weight and stress management, overcoming fears, apprehensions and other bad habits as well as improvements in academic and athletic performance. Though some clients have experienced results after just one session, Salerno insists that "hypnosis is not a one-size fits all process." Typically, he sends clients home with an audio program to listen to for a specific number of days. He says, "When the client comes back for their next session, I ask them to take me through their week and tell me what's different. Then I work in subsequent sessions based on what has transpired since our previous session." Earth Angels Veterinary Hospital 44 Saint Nicholas Rd.
