How do you feel?


Please, take a comfortable seat

Feel you body getting heavier in the chair

and rest for a few seconds.

Now ask yourself how do you feel.

Let the thoughts go freely.

Take a deep slow breath and pick a word, only one,

the first one that pops up.

There you are,


Welcome back.

Many patients are formally cured, but they are still seeking healing, on all many levels: physical, mental and spiritual.

And their minds and bodies offer possibilities that remain unexploited. Let's dive deeper and find unexpected yet priceless resources.

Now you can.

I can hear you, I can see you, I can feel you.

Hypnotherapy — which is the form of therapy that uses hypnosis as either a standalone or supplemental treatment — can benefit your health in a variety of ways.

During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused.  Hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused.

My method relies on Ericksonian hypnosis, which is the art of using meditative techniques and language to help a person move forward. Instead of “direct suggestion,” which most of us resist, this method helps people get in touch with that part of themselves that wants to change and quiets any thoughts that get in the way of making that change. Even if visible changes come often soon,  hypnosis should not be seen as a quick fix; instead, it is a process that can propel you forward in the long run. 

You have the ability to change your life in a meaningful way. Most people just need a little help finding effective ways to bring about those changes.

Mind-Body Medicine magnifies


healing power. 

Mens sana in corpore sano.



The Mind-Body approach to health is grounded in practical, evidence-based skills for self-care, nutrition and self-awareness. Mind-body medicine is based on the scientific understanding of the connection among our thoughts, sensations and feelings, and our mind, body, and spirit – between ourselves and the social and natural world in which we live.

Our mind is incredibly powerful, flexible and, in most cases, underestimated in its potential. Under the right conditions, it can heal the body by triggering a series of well-known and well documented mechanisms that exist in our body.

Did you know that, every day, our body eliminates tumoral cells that are produced since a young age in response to toxins of different nature? Or that the body constantly repairs damaged DNA to avoid permanent mutations and that it regenerates damaged tissues?

All these self-healing mechanisms work best and produce optimal outcomes only if the mind triggers a relaxation response. And in these conditions the power of the mind can literally change body's physiology and allow patients to heal.

Mind-body skills are scientifically validated to reduce stress and restore physical and psychological health. 

As a physician, I was trained to believe that I know your body better then you do. So if you are sick, you just hand over to me the way you bring a broken car to a mechanic. Then I fix you up. But your body is a self healing organism. By bypassing its natural self repair process and handing all your power over to a doctor, you might be ignoring the very thing you need to heal. Allow your body to do one of the things it does best - heal.

My story
Image by Richa Sharma


I am a professional medical doctor, trained in Internal Medicine and Cardiology and a qualified Hypnotherapist.

I spent more than 20 years in major university hospitals in Switzerland (HUG in Geneva, Unispital Basel and Triemli in Zurich) and later, in private practices in Zurich and Winterthur.

My qualification studies and practical experience brought me to the realization that there is a huge underestimation of our inner potential to heal: we live in a society where responsibility for our health is handed over to someone else, as if it were a watch to repair.

Instead, I believe everyone  plays a key role in their own well-being.

That is why I decided to focus on branches of medicine that study the effects of our mind over our body and conversely, how we can affect the mind through our body.​ I want to complement the traditional medicine with powerful processes and techniques that the main stream medicine hardly recognize.

Therapeutic fields


Hypnotherapy is a natural complementary medical treatment.

More and more people ask for a new dimension of healing.

Fill the gap between your body and your mind and feel your resources grow exponentially. 

Imagine how would you feel with the confidence, serenity, balance and happiness you deserve.

"You are what you believe you are" said C.S. Lewis 

So better decide who you want to be.

Medical secrecy & Confidentiality

The physician’s duty of confidentiality is based on the treatment contract between the patient and the physician and is regulated in the Swiss Penal Code (Art. 321 StGB).
The medical secrecy obliges me to be completely discreet towards other persons or institutions.

"I came to Puglia at a very stressful time in my professional life with a lot of stress and was looking for something that would calm the stress level and bring me back to my usual focus.

Since it was my first visit (ever), I did not really know what to expect.
My impression is that Silvia very skillfully combines her extensive medical knowledge gained from her rich experience with patients or clients.
I felt a very strong work ethic, the dimension of responsibility she feels for the patient's condition.
After our meeting, I had immediate relief, excellent sleep, and an inner peace that helped me find myself again, right when I needed it most.
It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Puglia."

"I tried hypnosis for the first time when the burden of stress at work was overwhelming and significantly affecting my performance.

Dr. Puglia helped me find the energy and happiness I need to be the best version of myself, every day.

I strongly recommend her for how deeply she could see behind "the armour" I used to wear in my life, I feel a different, better person now."
