Dr John Kappas founded his Hypnosis School in Anaheim in 1968. It is a non-profit nationally accredited hypnosis training college and clinic of hypnotherapy.
Dr. Kappas literally defined the profession of hypnotherapy in 1973, when he wrote and defined the profession of a “Hypnotherapist” in the Federal Dictionary of Occupational Titles. This proofed to be an extremely important exclusion until today. That definition remains in force and unchanged today.
HMI has to become nationally accredited, by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, in Washington, D.C.
Christine Hannah has been studying at this school as well as HPTI.org.

I wanted to give you an update on how things are going with me since I last saw you. Last week was an incredibly busy week for me so it was difficult to get down to the gym. However, I have managed to get into a spin class and do some circuit training. On the days I wasn’t able to go to the gym I walked 2 miles. The interesting this is, today I have so much to do before I leave tomorrow that I have been stressed about being able to get it done. I looked at the schedule for the gym last night to see what class I would like to go to. There was one at 8:30. I got to bed late last night cause I went to Santa Rosa to see my daughter’s play. I told myself that IF I woke up early enough, I would go to the class but I wasn’t setting an alarm clock. I woke up at 7. I mowed the lawn, and puttered around then I went to the gym.
I just wanted to tell you all of this because the hypnosis is working and I think you deserve to know. YAY!!!! I can’t wait to come back for another session. Oh, the other thing that has happened all on it’s own is, I have not been craving sweets or much of anything else in the evening. Amazing! We haven’t even addressed that yet. I have written up a review for yelp, but I haven’t posted it yet. I wanted to not only talk about the success with the exercise but also with the weight loss because that is where I think you will get a lot of people if they can hear some results with weight loss. So, I am so excited to share the review and I am excited about the results so far.
Two Forms of Worry
Like any thought-generated emotion, there can be both a positive and a negative outcome. The positive form of worry is what may be termed healthy concern. This form of worry motivates us to act, or behave in a responsible manner. For example, if a person has a concern about being being punctual, that concern can motivate the person to leave a time cushion to arrive at a destination before the appointment time. This form of “worry” motivates us to prepare for events or deadlines. The big difference between healthy concern and “toxic” or “negative” worrying is that healthy concern does not trigger, or stimulate us, to feel anxiety, nervousness or uneasiness.
Toxic, or negative worrying can only stimulate feelings of anxiety, uneasiness or nervousness. With that simple thought in the mind, “what if this,” or “what if that,” then moves into our body. Remember, there are no nerve endings in the brain, so the only place we feel any emotion is in our body. The result is an automatic tightening of muscles, maybe a queasy or jittery feeling in the stomach area. Spiritual guru Eckart Tolle refers to this mind-body process as the pain-body. The real result is that this form of worry affects the immune system, which is why people “get sick” from this form of worrying.
One solution is to practice, with repetition, mind control, or thought control. We can learn to control our own thoughts using the technique of “thought replacement.” The idea is to replace worry thoughts with thoughts of solutions, or a plan, or a strategy. With enough repetition, the solution thoughts replace the worry thoughts. The goal is to experience less stress/anxiety.
Example: A person with a medical condition starts to think “what if this, what if that.” Replace that thought pattern with a plan to seek medical referrals to resolve or clear up the problem.
Another solution is to use the strategy of Dale Carnegie, from his book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living: “First ask yourself: What is the worst thing that could happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.”
Example: A person worried they will be fired or let go from their job due to company downsizing. Thought process: “If I am let go, I’ll get some severance pay to tied me over until I find a replacement. In the meantime I’ll search for new job opportunities.” Often people realize that the worst is not as bad as they originally thought.
A third solution from Eckart Tolle’s The Power of Now, is to remind oneself to be in “the present moment.” The idea is that the negative thought process generated by the ego in the mind, can only exist in the past or the future. By reminding ourselves to be in the present moment, that negative thought process cannot affect us.
Example: Use the technique of noting the time (from a watch or cell-phone) and say to yourself “At (the actual time) I am in the present moment, I refuse to worry and I concentrate on solutions.” Then take three deep breaths, slowly exhaling. You will find that this has a calming effect. Please note that this is not a one-time-a-day day process, it must be practiced many times throughout the day. Do it (don’t “try it”) hourly and you will guarantee yourself more peace of mind.
When a client has been guided into a state of physical relaxation while still being mentally alert, they enter a hyper-suggestible, receptive state of mind. That is when it suggested to them “we want you to replace worrying with concentration, focus, and follow-through on solutions.”

A 12-year-old girl with severe asthma had been hospitalized more than 20 times, including six times in the intensive care unit.
Despite daily steroid medication, she still experienced shortness of breath and sometimes required rescue medication up to five times a day. Within two months after visiting Ran D. Anbar, M.D., FAAP, she was able to wean herself off the rescue medication and eventually stopped needing the steroid as well. Currently, she uses moderate amounts of medicine but no longer experiences the crippling effects of severe asthma.
This life-altering change occurred thanks to the use of pediatric hypnotherapy, according to Dr. Anbar.
Some symptoms can be a result of stress, especially if the symptoms cannot be medically explained, said Dr. Anbar, who has conducted many studies on hypnotherapy. The asthma patient’s symptoms after Dr. Anbar taught her how to use hypnotherapy to calm herself.
“Hypnotherapy can be incredibly powerful especially with symptom management,” said Timothy P. Culbert, M.D., FAAP, medical director, integrative Medicine and Cultural Care, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and member of the AAP Provisional Section on Complementary, Holistic and Integrative Medicine.American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP News http://www.aapnews.org/)
