Hypnosis Certification July 2011 April 28, 2013
Reviewer: Steve Cohen from Batavia, IL United States  
Clinton is a beautiful place for this class; the people are genial.

With Ron's experience in healthcare, I moved toward a specific direction that I had wanted. The information sent prior to my arrival assisted in learning needed for class.

The class was cultivating with scenarios of clients including but not limited to Weight Management, Smoking Cessation, Pain Management, and Stress Management

It included videos of Ron treating clients.

Ron has good leadership skills, remains motivated throughout the time together, and as the instructor also learns from you.

Note: I had a major surgery in which I was able to eliminate pain medications except for subcutaneous injections at the incision site prior to surgery and I was able to refuse nausea medication. Deep breathing exercises and my ability to use self hypnosis assisted in my comfort and healing sooner than expected. I now pass this information onto my own clients who also obtain positive changes.

Excellent Class April 26, 2013
Reviewer: Penny CRNA from Portland, CT United States  
Today I saw my first client. I was surprised at how much I remembered and did not have to look at script cards. Knowing vs. memorizing makes a huge difference. THANK YOU for all the practice.  Like you said, not that I did not believe you, the magnetic fingers "were amazing". She just couldn't figure out how I did that. Her headache was gone when we finished and she wanted to go take a nap (poor sleeper). I'm glad I had the engineer for my student-client session. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and experiences far beyond what was required for the course. You cannot put a value on the passion Ron has for teaching others hypnosis.

Clinical Hypnosis Certification October 19, 2012
Reviewer: William Allen CRNA from Corpus Christi, NC United States  
Was fortunate enough this past summer when I had the opportunity to attend Captain Eslingers class.  As a practicing CRNA I have utilized much of what I was taught at the Labor and Delivery Unit I worked at in North Carolina.  It gave me great satisfaction to help several women who absolutely did not want any epidural for labor, but agreed to hypnobirthing which made believers not only of the women and their families, but of staff RNs, staff OB/GYN physicians who were amazed how in less than 20 minutes with the patients they went from women in labor pain and than smiling as they pushed thier babies into the world.  I now utilize my training in a GI setting where I use hypnosis along with some conscious sedation for colonoscopies on patients who wished to try.  Unfortunately, due to the quick turnover I am very specific about which patients are selected, but the ones who utilize this technique are absolutely amazed.  Thank you Captain Ron!!
