Will my health insurance cover hypnotherapy treatments?


Many employers offer an FSA (Flexible Spending Account) or an HSA (Health Savings Account) which allows you to set aside pretax dollars each pay period to help cover prescription, medication and other health-related expenses that are often not covered by traditional health insurance.  I accept FSA and HSA cards (looks like a credit card).

If you don't have an HSA or FSA account,  clients must pay out-of-pocket for their hypnotherapy treatment and then submit their receipt for reimbursement from their insurance company. I do not file insurance claims.  I suggest that you check with your health care provider or employer if you plan to seek reimbursement, to see if, and how much, they will pay for Hypnotherapy/Acupressure (for pain management) sessions.


Expenses paid for hypnotherapy/acupressure are usually reimbursable when prescribed by a physician as therapy  to help in treatment of a medical condition.  Letter of medical necessity or a referral form is required.   (ie.. weight loss, stop smoking, anxiety/panic attacks, etc. ) 

You will need to submit the claim with the referral  form  from your physician and the Hypnotherapy receipt to your insurance company for reimbursement.  

I do not submit claims to insurance companies.

Darlene's rates are great for the wondeful and personalized service that she gives you.   She specializes each session completely for you, what 'you' need.   The sessions were always tailored personally to my needs.    I appreciate that!

I highly recommend Darlene McDowell as a professional Hypnotherapist.   I am an actor and I wanted to be more calm at auditons and feel confident.  I felt confident and had a major boost of self-confidence and self-esteem when I left her office, in one session.   Thanks!

I was amazed when Darlene analyzed my handwriting.  She knew everything about my behavior traits, just from my handwriting. I had never met her before.  We worked on the behavior changes.

And once I made a great change  in my behavior and started feeling really good about myself and my life and by the way, made a great career change!, we did the handwriting again and it actually showed the behavioral improvement.   Your handwriting is definitely your 'brainprint' .  I have no doubts now.

I came in for Smoking Cessation with Darlene McDowell.  I quit the first day, no desire to smoke again. 

Hypnosis is the only way to go!

I found Darlene on the Internet searching for a way to stop biting my nails.   Hypnosis works!  I had 2 sessions and now my nails look great.  I have no urge to bite my nails.  I love the way they look and I can actually get a manicure now! 

Shannon  F     TN



I set an appointment to come see Darlene McDowell for Hypnotherapy because I was in a very bad relationship and I never felt like I could actually be on my own.  I was always scared to start over.  I had no self-confidence or self-esteem.  I was worn down.  I didn't like myself much.  I didn't know what to do or how to get out of that terrible rut.  So, I thought I would 'try' hypnotherapy.  Nothing else was working.    Man!  Was I surprised.  My first session, we did a lot of soul searching and got to the root of the problem, then she did hypnosis.  So relaxing!!.  No stress, no worries.  I got to relax for the first time in years and just think about myself and living my life.  And I felt good when I left her office.   I booked a couple more sessions.   The second session, I felt like dancing when I left the office.  I liked myself.  

By the third session, I had moved to an apartment and was loving life! 

We discussed alot about life and being in control of my own life.  I now respect myself.

I am going to keep going to Hypnotherapy once a month because I just like that nice relaxing, stress-free feeling and I feel refreshed!  It's like re-charging your batteries!!    

Kimberly T     TN



I was afraid of flying and I had to make an important business trip, so I came in to see if Hypnosis could work.  I did 2 sessions right before I was to leave.   It works! I was amazed how relaxed I was on the flight.  Darlene had taught me breathing techniques, plus she taught me what makes people have panic, anxieites, fears or phobias.  It all makes sense to me now!   Amazing!   Thank you!!!
