Kraemer said he has had an interest in hypnotism since high school. ďHypnotherapy can provide a valuable service to a community,Ē he said. ďIt is a neglected form of therapy. I saw a chance to become involved in a way I can help people.Ē
Kraemer is also a writing teacher working on his PhD disertation. In order to complete his disertation on hypnotherapy, he needed a more flexible schedule, thus he dropped his teaching career to concentrate on his second career choice, hypnotherapy.
ďMy schedule at Paynesville Chiropractic is flexible. I work days, nights, and weekends by appointment,Ē Kraemer said.
ďEverybody has a natural brain wave pattern which places them in a hypnotic state every 90 minutes,Ē Kraemer added. ďA person can easily place themselves in a hypnotic state with self-hypnosis. A hypnotherapist can tell when someone is ready to be hypnotized by their brain wave pattern which shows through by the way they blink their eyes, their voice pattern, and respiration.Ē
Kraemer said hypnotherapy can help improve job, athletic, or classroom performance, memory, habits, health (self-esteem, weight loss, stop smoking), stress, fears, and pain. He also works with narrative construction, teaching the unconscious, lifestyle revisions, and transformative writing.
ďA hypnotist canít make anybody do something they donít want to do,Ē he added.
ďWe live in a competitive world and hypnotism also helps individuals improve their motivation,Ē Kraemer said.
Kraemer added he can teach people to teach themselves how to do self-hypnosis so they can connect with their unconsious the rest of their lives.
