Hypnosis: The Most Effective Therapy of All

Stop Smoking, Seattle!
Stop Smoking, Seattle!

Written by guest blogger, Michael Brannan.  🙂

Did you know that hypnosis is described by a prominent scientific journal as: “The most effective way of giving up smoking” (New Scientist, issue #1845, October 31, 1992, p 6). This was the conclusion reached after reviewing some 600 studies totaling nearly 72,000 people.

To find the most effective way to give up smoking, researchers carried out a meta-analysis, statistically combining the results of more than 600 smoking cessation studies covering almost 72,000 people from across the globe.  By combining the results from so many separate studies, the meta-analysis enables the real effectiveness of each technique to be seen. The results are clear:  the use of clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation is the most effective approach to becoming smoke-free in existence!  And, one of the least expensive!

The results are in.  According to the extensive research, here are the relative
effectiveness of various therapies:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy/Patches and gum, 7%

Will power alone (“cold turkey”), 6 – 11%

Herbal remedies, Lozenges, Nasal sprays,   2 – 5%

Herbal cigarettes, Inhalers, 2 – 5%

Prescription drugs, 20%

Acupuncture, 24%


We’re Connie and Michael Brannan, owners and operators of Mindworks Hypnosis, and we’ve been helping people end the smoking habit for over 7 years. We use a unique and powerful blend of hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to stop smoking dead in it’s tracks.

You may not have heard of NLP, but it is the most advanced and powerful form of hypnosis there is. It has been called “hypnosis on steroids.” Knowing that hypnosis is already the most effective way to stop smoking, just imagine your results when you put it on steroids! Cool, huh?

You can quit, and we can help using this powerful, proven and safe method. And, unlike drugs, hypnosis has no negative side effects. It does, of course, have positive side effects–you’ll start feeling happy, energized, joyous, much better than you have in a long, long time. Call us and get on the path to healthy now: 425-564-8608.

Warm Regards,

The Great American Smokeout 2013 (On November 21st) is looming. We’re planning a special event at a special price to help more smokers become non-smokers. Keep your eyes here for more details.

Is it Time to Quit Smoking, Seattle? Hypnosis Works!

Happy Lungs of a Nonsmoker
Quit Smoking Hypnosis - Your lungs will thank you!

I helped a nice young man to quit smoking yesterday.  He’d been at it for 15 years, since the ripe old age of 13 when he picked up his first cigarette.  After our 2-hour session, he said cigarettes were “nothing” to him.  He couldn’t dredge up any interest or desire to smoke, whatsoever.  None.

Yes, it can be that easy.  When you’re ready to quit, focusing your mind with hypnosis and skilled Neuro Linguistic Programming helps make it happen.

Michael and I are always taking a variety of trainings to keep our skills sharp and our creativity flowing.  Right now, we’re taking an improvisational acting course.  One of the games we learned there is called “narrative collage.”  We see a story from a variety of different vantage points, including ones you don’t normally think about.  I’ve created this 3-perspective story here about smoking cessation.  From the viewpoint of an ashtray, your lungs, and your wallet.  Enjoy their story:

We do offer a free in office personal consultation if you’d like to hear more about what we do and how we can help. Call us at (425) 564-8608 and we’ll be happy to set that meeting up for you.

You CAN be smokefree. Quicker and easier than you imagine.

Warm Regards,
