Hypnosis

 

Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation that we all encounter on most days. It is a state of heightened focus, concentration, and awareness. While experiencing this hypnotic state, the subconscious mind becomes more open to suggestion.

 

These suggestions however, have to be the desire of the client in order to be effective. In other words, the hypnotist can not make someone do something they do not wish to do. It is merely a myth that hypnosis can control someone or force them to do something outside of their will.

Hypnosis is a wonderfully relaxed state that is very much like meditation. The client is awake and in control at all times, but enjoys a profoundly comfortable feeling. It is a useful adjunct to counseling and therapy or can be a treatment modality on its own.

There are several areas in which hypnosis has been shown effective and they include:

  • Weight Control

  • Smoking and Vaping Cessation

  • Phobias and Fear

  • Stress and Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Sleep Disturbances

  • Pain Control
