Did You Know?

Fight Insomnia with Tart Cherries:

They’re among the richest food sources of melatonin, the same sleep-inducing hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in the brain. The body’s production of melatonin declines with age, which is part of the reason that older adults often have trouble sleeping. A study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that small doses of melatonin—about 0.3 milligrams (mg)—helped people get a better night’s sleep. One cup of tart cherry juice or about 1/8 of a cup of dried tart cherries contains roughly the same amount. Sweet cherries also contain melatonin but not as much. What to do: eat tart cherries or drink one cup of juice about an hour before bedtime. The juice is very tart—you might want to mix in a little apple or pineapple juice.  (Bottom Line Publications)

Kiss to Lower Stress: When couples kiss, it sets off a multitude of chemical reactions including reduction levels of the stress hormone cortisol.  Holding hands while talking is also effective in lowering stress and, of course, staying connected with one another. (Wendy L. Hill, PhD, Professor of Neuroscience, Lafayette College, PA)


There are Two Acupressure Points to Relieve Insomnia:

The Spirit Gate and the Inner Gate. Placing pressure on these points helps balance and calm the heart, alleviate anxiety, and promote sound sleep. Both are located on the inner wrist, so you can easily reach them yourself. The Inner Gate can be found in the middle of the inner side of the forearm, two and one-half finger widths from the wrist crease. The Spirit Gate is located on the inside of the wrist crease, in line with the little finger. (Susan Lark, MD)

I am currently a student at MIOH. I must say that this program is truly amazing! What started out as a desire to learn hypnotherapy to use as a profession is now that and so much more to me. The evolution that I'm personally experiencing from the MIOH courses in hypnotherapy, NLP, and Energy Psychology is such a confirmation of how powerful this work really is when presented properly.

Marla Brucker, the director, is knowledgeable, experienced, and interesting. The curriculum is fascinating, easy to follow, and truly applicable. Much of the class is experiential and interactive, which is such a powerful and effective way to learn. In addition to Marla, the program is taught by a number of other interesting and knowledgeable instructors...each contributing their unique experiences and perspectives. I love what I am learning and how the information is being presented.

I did a lot of research before deciding to enroll at MIOH. One aspect of the certification program that I think is SO important is the internship program. I could not find any other programs in the San Diego area that offer internships to support students transitioning into a career in hypnotherapy. I was intrigued by the fact that MIOH's hypnotherapy certification program incorporates NLP and Energy Psychology. These modalities work so well together to bring about positive change. I now have a variety of effective tools that I can use to guide my clients toward the transformation they desire.

I highly recommend Marla and her school to anyone looking to start a career in hypnotherapy and/or those wishing to grow and expand.

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,


…How many of you still hold on to things from your past? 


…When is it time to let go? 


There’s this story about two monks on a pilgrimage that came to a river bank they had to cross.  As the monks were ready to tread through the water, they noticed a young woman dressed in her finery.  They observed her hesitating, not wanting to get her clothes wet.  Without a second thought, the leader of the two monks lifted the woman and carried her on his back to the other side of the river where he put her down, and the two monks proceeded along their way.


After an hour of walking in silence, the other monk was feeling uneasy with what his fellow monk did and began to express his concerns. He started complaining “You know it’s against our commandments to touch a woman--let alone carry a woman.  How could you have done that, and doesn’t it bother you?”


The monk who carried the woman continued to walk without saying a word until he responded, “I set her down by the river an hour ago. Why are YOU still carrying her?”


Too often we hold on to emotions that are brewing inside of us or we aren’t able to let go of our past, bringing it into our future.


Your thoughts when combined with your feelings create your world.  It’s important to be happy with where you are today, which will help you create a better tomorrow.  And if you’re not happy, change it!


Whatever you think about and have strong feelings about will manifest in your life experience. Enjoy the process.


Have a wonderful Fourth of July.

To Your Success,

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
