Johnnine has been practicing nursing for approximately 26 years in South Lake Tahoe, California and Carson City, Nevada. She received her BSN (Bachelor of Science of Nursing) from Chamberlain College of Nursing. For the last 19 years Johnnine has been a surgical nurse working in the operating room. As a caring and empathetic person her concern for her patients led her to go beyond typical hospital protocol in caring for her patients. After studying hypnosis she realized how she could help patients with the fear and anxiety as well as assist in the healing process. Johnnine uses an integrative approach in her practice utilizing meditation, mindfulness, hypnosis and somatic work which helps patients feel more at ease and relaxed for medical procedures. She has recognized her important role as an intra-operative nurse and how she can facilitate a more relaxed state for patients before and after surgery and procedures. As a registered nurse, she has had a long-standing interest in the significance of attitudes, beliefs, emotions, and how they relate to health. She feels that one must look at the complete person as it relates to health and medicine. One cannot only treat symptoms without the knowledge of any underlying issues, or without addressing the connection of the mind and body. Her main interest lies in the use of medical hypnosis to alleviate suffering and symptoms or discomforts that may accompany various health issues, or may cause health issues to occur. Her approach allows the individual to access inner strength and reach an overall sense of well being so one can reach their own individual highest potential in life.

In addition to Johnnine’s medical background, she is a Certified Master Hypnotist and received her training at the Hypnosis Motivational Institute in Southern California. Johnnine is a meditation teacher working on her national certification as a mediation specialist trainer through the National Meditation Specialist Certification Board. (NMSCB)
