Traci Patterson, CH, CI

Clinical Hypnotist, Instructor, and Public Speaker in Irvine, California

Traci Patterson, Founder and Executive Director of Advanced Pathways. Traci is an internationally renowned hypnotherapist, a certified instructor, and clinician. She is an expert in CRPS, chronic pain and PTSD. Patterson is also a published author, keynote and motivational speaker, and patient advocate.

As an expert in CRPS and chronic pain, Traci is providing individuals with hope. Her protocol, HCT (Hypnosis Combined Therapy) is helping chronic pain patients regain their lives. This includes dramatically decreasing pain [many are gaining remission], increasing restorative sleep, decreasing/controlling stress, anxiety and/or PTSD, and helping patients to regain their lives. Treating individuals as a whole.

Traci has a dynamic background from a perspective that few if any other physicians, clinicians or practitioners can offer. Her background as a chronic pain patient diagnosed with CRPS, someone that utilized complementary and integrative treatment options (i.e. hypnosis, neuroplasticity training, biofeedback, etc.) to get into remission, and is now herself treating chronic pain patients is rare. She has patients that contact her on a worldwide basis seeking help for their chronic pain.

Traci is well known within the chronic pain and CRPS community as a patient advocate. She is an Ambassador with the US Pain Foundation and a Delegate with the International Pain Foundation on a volunteer basis, and is very passionate about ensuring the chronic pain community is not left behind.

Traci consults with physicians, clinicians and universities on CRPS/RSD, chronic pain and PTSD on an international basis.

There are over 100 million patients in the US alone that have been diagnosed with some form of chronic pain. Of those 4 out of 10 with moderate to severe pain do not get adequate relief with Traditional Medicine. More needs to be done to get the word out about alternative treatment options for CRPS/RSD, Fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, chronic pain, chronic headaches/migraines, cancer pain, PTSD, etc. Traci has put together protocols that are allowing chronic pain patients and veterans to regain their lives. This is more than just hype - it is HCT.

If you would like more information about HCT, Traci's journey with CRPS, possible treatment options for you or a loved one, or you are in need of a Motivational Speaker at an upcoming event, contact us today!

I feel like a new woman, in a new body, with an enlightened mind. And I want to thank you for taking the time to help me, to teach me to take care of myself. You are an amazing lady, doing remarkable things for others that thought there was nothing else left for them except existing in this life with pain. You gave me hope, and with that I will run and bloom into the flower we all are."

After 4 years of suffering, in 5 days I was able to get my life back. Absolutely speechless! Cannot say enough positive things about this treatment. It's the only thing that works!"
Sierra K. (CRPS)
I went through a week of treatment with Traci after being close to disabled for many years with Fibromyalgia. The treatment worked wonders, partly because of the nature, but also because of Traci's customizing each client's treatment to their own interests and goals. I now have my life back. I highly recommend this form of treatment, and highly recommend Traci as a Certified Hypnotist. She's gone through her own personal journey of pain and recovery, and truly understands."
