Dr. Wes Rocki – Theatrical Improv - a hypnotherapy related modality addressing the health consequences of adverse childhood experiences (ACE)

Wes Rocki, MD, PhD, CHI: Holistic Physician, Self-healing Care Coach

Unresolved ACE are the roots causes of most of the addictions and chronic diseases. Hypnotic induction of traumatic childhood is carried into adulthood in the form of an unhealthy hypnotic trance. As hypnotherapists, we help patients to gain awareness of their unconscious, ACE-induced scripts and then we coach them to function outside those scripts. As a result, educated and empowered patients make healthy choices in the present moment. This healing strategy can be augmented with the use of improv, an unscripted, spontaneous, often humorous play which inspires patients to be objective observant and authentic participants in their present circumstances. Improv may be applied to one-on-one, group sessions, and taught as self-healing care.
