Hypnotherapy offers up to 90 percent success rates (Photo) - 02/22/18

Local hypnotherapists help manage chronic pain, facilitate weight reduction, and other offer solutions for other personal issues.

Bottom line, Hypnotherapy works. Its efficacy has received endorsements from Forbes magazine, the National Center for Health Statistics, and others (www.cdc.gov/nchs/data), "biofeedback, hypnotherapy, and acupuncture are among treatments that produce the highest level of acceptance and referral by physician groups.
Noninvasive and safe, hypnotherapy is effectively used for:

" Chronic pain management
" Weight loss
" Trauma and anxiety reduction
" Overcoming personal issues and anxieties.

In the 1980's a wave of Nobel Prizes and other awards were bestowed upon researchers proving that the human brain is malleable and able to change and overcome past traumas. Researchers now know that human brain can "heal" and become stronger. This astounding phenomenon known as "neuroplasticity" allows specific therapies to provide individuals with a better life because of the changes the brain can make with the correct treatment. Many health care professionals now accept that the brain can respond substantially under personal control when provided with the correct tools. These brain changes occur when hypnosis is correctly used as a tool.

George Bare and Jon Roylance are both certified through the National Guild of Hypnotists. Bare and Roylance have decades of helping suffering clients in multiple practice modalities and see the results of this noninvasive treatment which can produce long-term relief for people suffering from chronic pain.

Roylance additionally specializes in weight loss and other personal issues and says that positive behavioral transformation often occurs in only one to three sessions.

A typical session costs between $100 - $150 with sliding scale fees available. Limited openings are available and there is no charge initial consultations. For more information: 503-747-4406.

LightBox Photographic Gallery invites you to Austin Granger's 'Correspondence' March 10-April 10 (Photo) - 02/22/18

PORTLAND, Ore. (Feb. 22, 2018) -- When you enter the world of photographic artist Austin Granger, you enter a more poignant version of the world you know. He sees, speaks to us and tells us the hidden stories between places and objects we so often miss.

"When I'm photographing well, I have the most uncanny feeling that the pictures are predestined. I recognize them. They echo the feelings inside myself. They correspond."

Representing 15 years of work, Granger will exhibit 60 black and white photographs in "Correspondence," his first solo exhibition in nearly a decade.

"I want to express emotions that people will recognize. I want my pictures to be a correspondence between us, to be both the place and the record of our meeting,"
he says.

* "Correspondence" runs Saturday, March 10, to Tuesday, April 10,
at LightBox Photographic Gallery, 1045 Marine Dr., Astoria, Ore.

* Opening reception: March 10, 5 to 8 p.m.

* Artist's talk: March 10, 4 to 5 p.m. Call 503-468-0238 to reserve seating.

* A 76-page catalogue of "Correspondence" is available for $25.

"Austin Granger is making the most interesting landscape photography in the modern genre," states Ray Bidegain, photographer-educator and Lyceum Portland founder. "It is driven by a keen sense of graphic organization, is sometimes humorous and is always uniquely his own vision."

Michael Granger* of LightBox Photographic Gallery agrees. "Plan ahead for the very expressive and extremely talented Austin Granger," he urges. "We look forward to introducing you to the imagery of this prolific visual master." Established in 2009, this is the gallery's 107th show.

Platinum palladium prints
For more than 15 years, Granger has practiced his craft using the richness, depth and authenticity only black and white film delivers.

For this exhibition, 60 photographs were rendered as luminous platinum palladium prints on Hahnem?1/4hle Platinum Rag, museum quality paper, in collaboration with
The Cunningham Press. Hahnem?1/4hle provided generous support for the exhibition.

Austin Granger bio
Born in San Francisco in 1970, Granger has worked as a baker, house painter, naval radar operator and camera salesman. He first began to photograph while studying philosophy at the University of California -- Santa Cruz as a way to get out of his head. Preferring to use traditional film cameras, Granger has come to see his photography as a spiritual practice -- a way in which to shape his life and enrich his relationship with the world. He lives with his family in southwest Portland.

Granger is the author of the hauntingly beautiful "Elegy From The Edge Of A Continent, Photographing Point Reyes," published by Goff Books in 2016 with 188 pages and 80 stunning photographs. To order a copy, visit Goff Books.

In addition to his coming talk at LightBox, Granger recently spoke to the Photography Council at the Portland Art Museum and will address the Portland Photography Forum, March 19, 2018.

* Note: Although their last name is the same, Michael and Austin are not related.

Wallenberg saved more than 15,000 lives in just six months while working in Budapest between July and December 1944.
