“From the moment we exist, our minds magnify and amplify everything. Positive experiences are magnified and create a positive energy. Negative experiences are amplified and create a negative energy. Too many negative experiences work on the mind like a virus works on a computer — our systems begin to shut down. My job is to find and fix that virus so that a person can overcome their obstacles and achieve their goals and dreams.”

A few years back, Tamera Barnes found herself searching for a different kind of medicine. “I’d fallen into the ‘busy mom trap,’” said the mother of five. “I’d gotten so busy taking care of the details of life that I forgot how to take care of myself. I was depressed and overweight, and I didn’t want to go to the doctor and be given another pill.”

Instead, Barnes looked into holistic medicine, including hypnotherapy, and had such great results that she couldn’t help but want to share. She attended the California Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences in Sacramento, and, after studying everything that the school had to offer, opened her own clinic, Peace With Every Step, in Cameron Park.

In particular, Barnes specializes in Ayurveda, an East Indian philosophy that focuses on prevention and staying in tune with the rhythms of nature.

“Ayurveda looks at whether or not you’re living a lifestyle that supports the kind of lifestyle you want to have,” said Barnes. “It emphasizes routine, things like, ‘Are you feeding yourself regularly and eating foods from the earth?’ As you learn more, you’re able to notice what could be out of balance that is making you sick.”

Unlike hypnosis in the movies, the kind of hypnotherapy Barnes uses is very gentle. It’s about accessing the portion of your mind that becomes active right before you fall asleep.

“My goal is to set the stage for the subconscious to become open so that we can find and fix the obstacles that are blocking you from what you want to achieve,” said Barnes. “It isn’t about the condition, it’s about the person. This is where traditional medicine falls off. Every person is different.”

In this way, Barnes has been able to help clients with numerous conditions, including depression, self-esteem, insomnia, smoking, weight loss, allergies and more. Her treatment plan is tailored to the individual, and she always offers a free consultation so clients can decide if hypnotherapy is right for them.

“Even if you don’t think it’s for you, I want to tell you about a way that might make you feel better,” said Barnes. “I’ve seen people grow and change to the point that they almost look like a new person. It’s a joy and a privilege and a blessing to witness that happen. And it’s an honor for me to be a part of that with them.”

Barnes works out of her Cameron Park office Monday through Friday. For more information about Peace With Every Step call 916-801-8832 or visit peacewitheverystep.com.
