Meet Dr. Umesh

Umesh K Tiwari, MD CHT

Dr Umesh is a medical doctor certified 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 his patients’ illnesses were controlled no only by their biology but also by their psychology and sociology.

The Sad Reality is that modern biology has become so overwhelmingly complicated that most doctors can barely keep up. Studying just the biology of medicine is like trying to drink from a fire hose going at full blast. With so many biology-oriented facts to cram into their heads, most doctors forget to deeply think about the psycho and the social.

Unfazed and always looking for a better way to serve clients seeking his counsel, Dr Umesh has found that better way with hypnosis and hypnotherapy.

You too can “heal with the power that lies within” and become whole again with help from Dr Umesh at the Arizona Center for Hypnotic Healing.

Little Known Fact

I have performed on stage at both Carnegie Hall in New York City and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.

On Life …

Far Better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, then to take rank with poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
26th US President
(1858 – 1919)

On Teaching …

Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will try to remember. Involve me and I will understand; for then it is my own.

On Selecting Friends, Associates and Co-Workers …

Great minds may think alike, but brilliant minds think as one.
