Meet Dr. Umesh

Umesh K Tiwari, MD CHT - Portrait

Doctor Umesh is a licensed medical doctor trained in internal medicine who has chosen to devote his practice to clinical hypnotherapy. While in his first year of medical school, he fondly remembers learning the bio-psycho-social model of health and healing. He learned that the his patients’ illnesses were controlled not only by their biology but also by their psychology and sociology.

The sad reality is that modern biology has become so overwhelmingly complicated most doctors can barely keep up. Studying just the biology of medicine is like trying to take a sip out of a fire hose going at full blast. With so many biology-oriented facts to cram into their heads, most doctors give up thinking about the psycho and social.

Unfazed and always looking for a better way to serve those who seek his counsel, Dr Umesh has found that better way in hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Once again, bringing together all the relevant factors, you too can be helped to become whole again and truly heal: mind, body, and spirit.
