You have the MOST effective line of soothing tapes/CDs I’ve ever used, and I’ve tried a lot of ’em… The reason I wanted to order the Relaxation/Affirmation CD is because a friend of mine sent me the cassette tape quite a few years ago and it is almost worn out!! It is my favorite relaxation method of all. It always relaxes me into a restful sleep. Keep up the good work.

Ann W.Santa Barbara, CA

Hi Nancy!

Just wanted to let you know that I have been using your Deep Healing Sleep disc for a couple of weeks now, with astonishing results. I can’t tell you how lifesaving your techniques and presentation are. There are so few people who really understand the value of sleep and relaxation that I wanted to affirm your efforts to help people in those areas. I am probably going to get the Relax-Quick! CD as well, for use throughout the day.   I work in a stressful office and live in a city.

I have tried every kind of drug and herbal remedy on the market for my chronic insomnia, in addition to hypnosis, acupuncture, and solo meditation. None of these tools were able to remedy the root of the problem–my inability to relax and let go. After a lifetime with no stress-reduction techniques, my body and mind had forgotten how to release tension, and the buildup was ruining the quality of my life, even though I exercised regularly. There is something special about the way you present the information that you have to share. The techniques seem simple, and you would think you could do them one your own, but having your voice as a guide makes them much more effective. It’s easier if someone else is doing the driving, as it were. I had lost faith in my body’s ability to relax, but the soothing, practical, and effective techniques that you employ really do work. I was pretty hopeless and bitter about my insomnia and the medical profession’s response to it. In general people just don’t seem to understand what it does to a person to have chronic difficulty falling asleep.

I plan to use your CD regularly to increase my body’s capacity for overall relaxation and well-being. I think it is already helping me to be open to more joy in life, because I’m less burdened by chronic, overwhelming fatigue. Thank you so much.

Kate BarrettEditorSan Francisco, CA

I’m currently in an Outpatient Treatment Program for substance (in my case alcohol) abuse. On behalf of my mother and myself, we THANK YOU so much for the healing work you do. We listen to your cds daily and find them effective and comforting.

Your CDs saved my life, and my friend’s life, when I was in crisis….

B.D.Eugene, OR

Thanks Nancy. Your work is “exquisite”. I am currently experiencing shingles and a reactivation of some autoimmune problems. Your CDs help me immensely. [I have nine of them!] Also, my husband has Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and I will encourage him to listen also. Thanks for your work.

Rose K.Broadview Heights, OH

I have spent many years studying the art of relaxation through meditation, guided imagery, positive affirmation and the like and have found your Relax Into Healing Series to be by far some of the best available, anywhere! They are extremely well presented and executed. All the positive energy you put into the series comes through to the listener… The world cannot get too much of these incredible tools! Spread the word!

Karl HoschAuthor, Reiki PractitionerPittsfield, MA

I used your Relaxation for Expectant Mothers with great success.  After my daughters were born, I also played the second track for new parents many times… Thanks….

M. MulhollandAlbany, NY

Once again, you have made my life so much better!!! I have been listening to your CD’s/tapes for many years, regularly, especially at night. Recently my husband had a motorcycle accident and broke both legs. Needless to say, I have been his main caregiver and it has been quite a task. We recently went camping and somehow I injured my eye and have a badly scratched cornea. SO, in addition to assisting my dear husband, I must take good care of myself. I first thought was YOU!!!! I have been listening to your CD’s every chance I get, they calm me and relax me and give me the strength to get up and get going again. Thank you so much Nancy for your wonderful words, they mean the world to me!!!

A.W.CA

My 11-year old son has been restless at night and having trouble sleeping, maybe because of the adolescent melatonin imbalance thing. He asked if he could use my relaxation and sleep CDs (Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques and Relax Into Healing: Deep, Healing Sleep) …and he loves ’em! He’s been using them every night. He’s sleeping so much better and waking up feeling rested and happy. The good sleep is helping his concentration on school work, too. So thank you…your work is really making a difference in people’s lives!

Kymm NelsenBusiness owner and mother of threeVancouver, WA

The day I first heard one of your CDs was a revelation for me…I now have seven of your CDs and have been in your loving, healing radiance for the past two months. You have become my special angel, and for that – and so much more – I am grateful. Pain has been my constant companion, so your has guided me along the way. I constantly use Pain:  Softening the SensationsDeep, Healing Sleep and Healing Affirmations & Harp and my most recent purchase, Finding the Peaceful Place Within. I cannot express enough my gratitude to you and your work. You are so gifted.

Jean PrinceEugene, OR

I gave your Relax-Quick! CD as a gift to each of our professional facilitators at the recent Annual Company Meeting. We then used the CD for an extended relaxation exercise during the meeting. People enjoyed the first exercise so much, that we decided to do the entire Section 2!  ‘Rainbow’ and ‘Back-Pack’ were our favorites. One man never made it past the middle of ‘Rainbow,’ and just snored softly through the rest of the exercises!  Now that’s relaxation! Our business client leaders also enjoy the CD, and use it in their transformation efforts to help themselves and their managers to relax and be more effective.  Thank you for being a source of relaxation for many people!

The techniques on my Deep, Healing Sleep CD seem simple, and you would think you could do them one your own, but having your voice as a guide makes them much more effective. It’s easier if someone else is doing the driving, as it were.

Doug C.Las Vegas

I took about three minutes of this hectic Saturday morning where all sorts of family will be coming over in five hours, to relax a bit. I found your voice to be just right – ‘grounded’. So if you do make an appearance in Chicago I would like to know about it. Thanks.

CarlosChicago, IL

I have been enjoying my “Go to sleep!” CD. I love both CD Resource Kits, allowing each of us, your students, to feel that personal side of you. I have learned to come into the program at different cuts for personalized effects. You do good work! Thank you. P.S. My friend (an RN) is getting good results with your healing CD (Relax Into Healing: Finding the Peaceful Place Within) as well, following her heart surgery.

Rev. Dr. John F. IngramEugene, OR

You’ve totally transformed my sleeping! You have a real gift…something about your voice and your words…You’ve made a phenomenal difference in my life!

Mary Ann Martin

I purchased your CD Relax Into Healing: Deep, Healing Sleep in December 2003 as I lay night after night for over 2 years not being able to obtain the quality and quantity of sleep I needed in order to function in this busy world. Well, after 2 weeks of looking at the CD I decided, “Well, it can’t hurt to try”. I am writing to you today because I have been able to fall asleep ever since the first time I listened to this amazing CD. I never thought it would really work but I gave it a try. I am so grateful to you and all the people who helped you put this together. I have listened to the entire CD only 3 times in the past 2 months because each and every time I fall asleep before it reaches the end. Thank you and God bless you all!

D.N.

I’ve listened to a lot of relaxation tapes and CDs, but yours is the best – the most balanced – your voice is wonderful, the affirmations are…not too flowery!

C.R.TeacherCoos Bay, OR

My family and I attended your presentation at the U of O Bookstore.  We all enjoyed it immensely and we bought your sleep CD. Our 15 year old son has had some trouble sleeping.  Sunday nights seem to be the most problematic. The first night he used your CD he slept nine hours!! Many thanks.

Anne GordonGreenEden Labyrinth WalksEugene, OR

If you only knew how many times and how many years your CD’s have brought me from a place of tension to a place of peace and contentment! You are an absolute treasure!  I thoroughly enjoyed your latest newsletter. You are bringing such profound awareness to our physical and spiritual needs especially in these terribly troubled world times.  Keep up your wonderful work!

Ann WinterSanta Barbara, CA

I heard your [Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] tape at a stress-management training offered by the New York City chapter of the MS society. Of six tapes used, I found yours to be the most useful. I’ve had MS for 20 years, and stress for many more, and I felt wonderful for days after hearing your tape.

D. MorrisonAttorneyNew York, NY

I have recently given up drinking after twenty-five years of drug and alcohol abuse.  I am looking for avenues toward a real spiritual revival and healing of myself.  While that may sound trite and shallow, I assure you it is not.  Life is becoming a pleasurable experience… Your CDs have been a great help in my beginning to wake up and grow. Thank-you for that…” [from a follow-up letter:] “Recovery is a slow and sometimes frustrating process. Thank-you for your work and the help it gives me.” [ 5 years later: “Life is great!”]

Russ GreenbergComputer TechnicianBedford, MA

I have used some of Nancy’s excellent relaxation tapes with both adults and teens with superb results.  Her gentle, pleasing voice aids in transporting the listener through a rainbow of guided images.  I highly recommend her tapes to anyone who is on the path less traveled.

Joyce ThayerLake County Learning CenterLakeview, OR

I have moderately severe spinal stenosis at L4 and 5 that causes intense muscle spasms.  I’ve been using your relaxation techniques for several months now, and they’re working…this is a serious back injury, and it’s really helping! Also, using these techniques in combination with exercise and diet, my blood pressure has dropped from 200/80 to 160/65!

J.S.(age 70), Retired LawyerInorganic Chemist

Let me say that your voice is most enjoyable and helpful…The affirmations are great – I say this because so much material from the “New Age” movement is unsuitable to Christians…but I believe your affirmations are general enough to be of benefit and healing to all who use them.Every blessing for success with your work.

S.R.Catholic PriestAustralia

I still use your [Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] tape frequently as a way to relax mentally as well as physically – to stop the barrage of thoughts that always crowd in when I stop long enough to try and relax…

Ron BushAttorneyLong Beach, CA

I especially liked the format of [Track 2 – Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] – the deep relaxation induction followed by a series of well-designed affirmations. It gives the listener time to ingest each one on a deep, subjective level.

S.W.Institute for Bio-Acoustic ResearchEugene, OR

Thanks for your beatific voice – so calming and reassuring.  I’ll tell you, using this [Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] tape (since 1989!) is probably one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself!  Can you send me a catalogue of other titles?

V.S.San Francisco, CA

I’ve used your tapes for years. I have other tapes, but yours are the ones I always come back to…your voice, your words, your phrasing, and your music!  And my kids love listening to them, too!

K.M.Eugene, OR

I would like to order your Relaxation/Affirmation tape…I loaned mine to a friend who won’t give it back!

F.M.Cumberland, ME

Some time ago I bought the tape Relax-Quick! by Nancy Hopps and have found it extremely helpful…I am a relative newcomer to this whole area of self-help techniques for health and well-being, and find it all fascinating! …Thank-you.

Mrs. E.J.London, England

My 3-year-old daughter, Victoria, loves Nancy’s relaxation [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape.  It helps calm her down at nap time and to settle down for a good night’s sleep.

J.S.Portland, OR

I gave your [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape to a friend of mine, and she used it with her very active 2-year-old son.  He loved it, and she says every night now he asks, “Is it time for the tape?

S.S.Ashland, OR

My 9-year-old son, Chris, just loves your [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape!  I was amazed at the difference it made.  Thank-you!

P.R.Springfield, OR

I listened to your color relaxation tape [Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] and absolutely loved it!  It has really made a difference in my life! …I just wanted you to know that it is indeed great work that you do and thank you for sharing it with me.

B.A.(age 15)Eugene, OR

We listened to your [Relaxation/Affirmation] CD in our [alternative high school] class yesterday, and…wow!  It was really cool.  I got really relaxed!

J.J.(age 17)Eugene, OR

I’ve read so many books about meditation, yoga, etc., and I’ve been in India studying meditation from Indian yogis and Tibetan lamas.  Of all I learned, I still prefer color meditation to anything else…As you know, each color has a specific beneficial “quality” (there is a better word in Danish, but I can’t find the equivalent in English)…still, I can’t visualize colors clearly.  Listening to your tape make it easier.  The nice music in the background also helps to get into the relaxing mood (alpha)…” [from a follow-up letter:] “Regarding your [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape…it dawned on me how fantastic it really is.  It’s as if the essence of all the teachings of the great masters is put together/compiled in this one tape that contains more wisdom than many good books combined…I could have continued to comment on how wonderful the rest of your tape is.  Suffice to say – it’s a real treasure!

Hans H.Denmark

I just want to really thank you for your [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape.  I’ve gotten to sleep three nights in a row now, and it feels wonderful!  Thanks so much.

D.R.Eugene, OR

I have come to rely on the [Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] tape, because it helps my panic/anxiety attacks.

B.V.Bristol, CT

Thank-you so much for the [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape…When I started experiencing theanxiety in class again, it was so easy to call to mind your helpful tape and your calming influence. The world needs more healing influences like you!

M.M.Eugene, OR

I heard your [Relaxation/Affirmation] tape from a friend.  It is the only one I’ve heard that really helped me…Thank-you.

L.D.Malaga, NJ

I’ve tried a lot of tapes over the years, and I like yours best…by far!

V.F.Moretown, VT

You have the voice of angels, with the guidance of God.

B.R.Detroit, MI

Yours are the best I’ve ever heard – and I’ve listened to a lot of them!

Karl H.ScreenwriterPort Washington, NY

I teach seniors, and my whole class loves you…and so do I!….[Also,]my friend fell and broke both her wrists and I could think of no present that would do her more good than your CD. I’m ordering another one for another friend whose husband is in a nursing home; she’s exhausted and again, your CD is the perfect gift.

Joan Tabor SteigmanBoynton Beach, FL

Thank you so much for the CD. I’m enjoying it as I write. Your CD is so good, I’m going to download it onto my iPod. I want to take your energy everywhere I go. I think the whole world needs to listen to your CDs. An Ocean Of Calm [on Finding the Peaceful Place Within] is simply wonderful.

Peter ScroginDurham, OR

I’ve been in therapy for about 3 years, and the only [CD] that’s worked to help me relax is yours. Other people’s that they’ve played in the groups have been okay, some of ‘em, but yours is the only one that really helped me go deep…

JacylenNorwalk, OH

Hi Nancy,Been having a little stress in my life and wanted you to know that I always turn to your relaxation tapes[CDs] and receive such a gift of restorative peace of mind. Thank you for all you do. Love,

AnnSanta Barbara

I have had a real breakthrough the past two nights with the “Finding the Peaceful Place Within” CD. Thank you sooo much …. I’ve been wanting to find a good CD for a couple of years to help me and this is the first one that has really clicked for me. I feel so grateful.  I’m wondering if I could order the sleep one as well?

Leah GreenFounder and Director of The Compassionate Listening ProjectSeattle, WA

Thank you, Nancy!  You didn’t over-sell the merits of your Deep, Healing Sleep CD.  I’ve listened to it many times and today have it running continually to float in the relaxing, positive energy you express. It eased the allergic tickle in my throat when I listened to it at the hospital’s Sleep Fair where we met, and now my “lost voice” is almost back! Thank you for being there in the exactly perfect place for me to get the help I desperately needed. You’ve given me my life back.   Gratefully,

Gail Daggett McCammon (age 73)

I love the Finding the Peaceful Place Within tape [CD]. It’s so soothing! I go to sleep hearing your voice, and I wake up hearing your voice….You’re an absolute Godsend!

Marge Guio (age 85)Big Piney, WY

I gave your [RELAXATION/AFFIRMATION CD]to my 70-yr.old mom about a year ago, and she loves it!  I’ve never seen her take to anything- any other tapes or books – like she has to yours.   She has high blood pressure, stress, and a host of other health problems, and she listens to your tape religiously every afternoon. She actually wore it out! So I’d like to send her one of each of your relaxation CD’s for an anniversary gift.

Love Deep Healing Sleep. Great stuff.  Soothing voice. Been a life saver during chemo and after. I frequently fall asleep before the end of CD. Can you suggest another title to look at? Thanks again!  [next day:]  I got Finding the Peaceful Place Within today. Very, very nice. Been through it, first listening to this track and that, and then after lunch, start to finish. Terrific. Again, fell asleep before the end.

Mark PerrinEugene, OR

Hi Nancy – Just a little note to let you know how much I love your CD’s that I ordered. Thank you so much.  You have such a soothing voice, that alone makes everything better.

Rita H.Ontario, CANADA

Ask anyone who knows me to describe me and the word Zen would never be used.  However, Zen is what I became prior to my surgery thanks to Nancy and her beautiful Surgery: Mindful Mending CD.  I am not one to meditate but was given the gift of her cd a week before my hysterectomy.  I didn’t know what a wonderful and needed gift it was going to turn out to be.  I listened to it daily in preparation and had it playing on my iPod during pre-op.   The anesthesiologist came by right before my surgery to see if I needed a sedative.  My blood pressure was 100/70 and even if I tried, I could not produce any anxiety.  I  had my visualization in place, so much so that when I was laying on the table and they injected the goofy juice into my IV, the surgical lights looked identical to the blue ocean water I had been visualizing all week.  The days following surgery I listened to the second portion of the cd to help me through moments when I was worried about my healing body.  Nancy’s soothing voice and guidance helped me to calm my mind and reminded me to allow room for the healing process to do the work necessary to a full recovery.

Now, ask anyone who knows Nancy to describe her and they will  say she has a lovely presence and a beautiful voice.  It is very true and it comes through on her cd’s.  I am lucky enough to work with Nancy and to have been gifted her cd.   I will be forever grateful.
