Welcome Members and Friends!

For this month’s newsletter, we are bringing something to you from a very different but incredibly interesting angle. DR. VICTOR RAUSCH is a hypnotherapist and retired dental surgeon. He graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto in 1964. For five years he served with the Canadian Armed Forces (Royal Canadian Dental Corps). In his role as Dental Officer, he integrated hypnosis into the clinical aspects of dental treatment. His main interest lay in developing techniques for rapid relief of apprehension, pain control, bleeding control and rapid post-operative healing. Dr. Rausch left the Armed Forces in 1969 and opened a private dental practice in Waterloo, Ontario.

His total involvement with and belief in the potentials of hypnosis prompted him to put it to the ultimate test. In 1978, he had major abdominal surgery, using SELF-HYPNOSIS as the sole anesthetic agent. It was a major medical breakthrough and became an international news item. He has been extensively interviewed and written about by the news media from around the world. Dr. Rausch has appeared on: "Nature of Things", "Man Alive", "At Discovery Canada" and "Vision TV-Enigma". 

Dr. Rausch is a Fellow of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and a Diplomate of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis in Dentistry. He is a past member of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the International Society of Clinical Hypnosis and the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine. He has taught and lectured nationally and internationally.

Dr. Rausch has also been on the teaching faculty at Wilfrid Laurier University, Department of Psychology. At present he conducts workshops on self-hypnosis and personal growth for business owners and executives at the Tri-Centric Hypnosis Centre in Waterloo, Ontario.

How to Gain Control and Change Your Life
The Simplicity and Power of Self-Hypnosis

By Dr. Victor Rausch, D.D.S.

All of us, on occasion, perhaps during very personal moments of reverie, have imagined and fantasized as to what it might be like to be: "healthy, wealthy and wise", productive, creative, confident, motivated, respected and valued in our area of expertise, and to communicate clearly and  instill a positive attitude in those around us both in the workplace and at home. In other words, what it might be like to be an effective leader and a productive member of society. The impossible dream? Not really.

As food for thought and to draw you into my frame of reference, my space, let me begin by stating:

  • every one of us has the ability and potential to affect and control every physiological function in our bodies predictably: pulse rate, blood pressure, relaxation response and automatic biochemical actions;
  • we have the potential and ability to directly affect our physical and mental health predictably;
  • we can bring into balance our physical, mental and creative components and affect everyone around us and function on a level we never before thought possible. This entire process is simple and obvious, once we have accessed and discovered it within us.

In reading the above from an objective perspective, the old adage “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is” and words like "snake oil" and "B.S." come to mind, as they should!  We cannot use logic to discuss, let alone explain, what I am attempting to communicate, since we are dealing with a subjective experience.
