Next Meeting

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

7:00 p.m. SHARP





Alan Handelsman -"That's Always Been Hard For Me”

Tina Sacchi - “Why Do We Get Dis-eases? How to

Get to the Root With Hypnosis”


You know both of them as loyal ASPH Members.

(Alan is a past ASPH President.)

Tina and Alan are among Arizona’s best known

and most successful hypnotherapists.


Tina Sacchi


“Why Do We Get Dis-eases? How to Get to the Root With Hypnosis”


For almost every dis-ease (lack of ease), there is a probable emotional cause. If we don't get to the root

of the issue by peeling the layers away with hypnosis, we will continue to feel ill or a dis-ease. We

must find and learn the true source of dis-ease in order to be completely healed.



Tina G. Sacchi is a holistic shamanic practitioner, certified hypnotherapist, speaker

& teacher. Her techniques include dowsing, Reiki, ear coning, meditation, life coaching,

spiritual coaching, crystal and sound healing. After climbing the ladder to senior executive

positions in corporate America for over almost 20 years,  Tina felt that there was still

something missing and as a result, she battled some physical illnesses such as diabetes,

arthritis, shingles, etc., which are no longer part of her life.


“And now what?” she asked. Although she was always successful in her various positions,

she wasn’t passionate about her career and wanted to claim back her physical health. So in

1997, she left corporate America, gained her health back with hypnosis and realized what

a great healing tool Hypnosis was. And so she started studying profusely the many alternative

healing techniques she now uses to help others, with Hypnosis being a favorite that

helped her overcome dis-eases.  Later, Tina was confronted with cancer, another informant

where she got to the root, obtained lessons, and has moved on to excellent health.

“That's Always Been Hard For Me”


Is there an issue that a client presents to you that always makes you cringe? Or that you find

hard to address? Is there a part of the hypnotherapy process where you lose confidence?

Alan Handelsman would like to address those very problems. If you have some part of your

practice that you'd like more confidence with, or would like to be a demonstration

“subject,” please contact Alan.


If you are having a problem with a certain presenting issue or part of the process, chances

are good that others are as well. You will have the gratitude and appreciation of the

whole group, as well as Alan.


(Alan Handelsman: 602-478-8346.


After  graduating in 1972 from Northeast High School in Philadelphia near the top of

his class, but a good 15 to 20 places below Lewis Heller (it depends on who you talk to – Alan

or Lewis), Alan finished his academic career by enrolling at West Chester State College as a

music major receiving his B.S. (It’s not what you think) degree in 1977. Always on the fast

track, Alan earned his Master’s Degree in Music performance twelve years later, in 1989.


In his long career as a musician, he was putting people to sleep on a regular basis, so his

switch to Hypnosis was a natural progression. The other reason for his entrance into the

field of Hypnotherapy was that he needed so much help, he was hoping to get a

professional discount.


Whether as a musician, developer of the Resonance Tuner™, public speaker, or

Hypnotherapist, Alan has come to be very widely known in very small circles.


Now semi-retired, he lives a life of relative seclusion at an undisclosed location in South

Scottsdale at 6112 E. Vernon Ave. He lives with his wife Anita (the one with the real

sense of humor), and his male rabbit named Precious, who obviously has some issues of his

own to work out.
