Mission Statement:  Orion Wellness provides a method for adults and children to improve their mental state, their physical health, and their general well-being through the use of hypnosis, meditation, and associated complementary practices.


Medical hypnosis is not an alternative or a replacement for professional medical care. Neither are Complementary Medical Techniques. Be sure to consult with your primary care provider and continue medical treatment. Hypnosis and the other complementary techniques taught to you are to be used in addition to your professional medical treatment.

Hypnosis and Complementary Medical Techniques are aimed at reducing symptoms of health conditions. No guarantee can be made, and no refunds made after a session, just as no guarantee of success or refund is given by your physician for your medical treatment. Although the goal is improvement of symptoms, there are times that medical conditions will improve due to the complementary techniques implemented, so you need to be receptive to the fact that it is possible. Your mind has amazing powers.

That being said, often the medical condition itself will improve simply because hypnotherapy and other complementary techniques help you to do better self-care, things like eating healthier, weight loss, better adherence to your medical treatment, meditating and/or self-hypnosis, and enjoying doing exercise.
