Crouse Hospital Presents “Integrating Hynosis To Achieve Well-Being” Seminar Tuesday, Feb. 10

01/09/09

Have you tried to lose weight, stop smoking, control fears or handle moods and emotions — without success? Join popular local master hypnotist Mark Briggs, LCSW, CHt, on Tuesday, Feb. 10 for “Integrating Hypnosis to Achieve Well-Being,” an educational seminar presented by Crouse Hospital’s Institute for Integrative Medicine. Free and open to the public, the seminar begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Parking is also free in the Marley and Crouse garages. To register, call 315-472-2464.


Hypnosis, a rapid-change technique practiced for over 5,000 years, was recognized as a valid therapy by the American Medical Society in 1958, and has thousands of scientific studies behind it. Hypnosis can be used for almost any human problem, including obesity, addiction, stress, nicotine, out-of-control emotions, anxiety, anger, self-esteem, and many medical conditions, such as allergies, dermatology, IBS and childbirth. Briggs will talk about the myths and facts about hypnosis as a healing tool, how it works and what the technique feels like, including an actual demonstration of hypnosis.

Briggs, a licensed psychotherapist and master hypnotist, received his master’s degree in Social Work from Syracuse University in 1971. Early in his career, he was in charge of an outpatient treatment clinic for a local psychiatric hospital, where he became drawn to hypnosis “because of its ability to change human problems much more rapidly and deeply.” In 1985, Briggs joined Alternative Hypnosis, in East Syracuse, which he has operated since. The practice treats people with a range of conditions and trains students in the practice of hypnotherapy
