Hypnotherapy


Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy which utilizes hypnosis (a trance-like state) to create a heightened state of awareness and suggestibility.   During hypnosis, your body feels very relaxed and your mind becomes more receptive to positive suggestions.

Our minds function on two levels; conscious and subconscious.  The conscious mind (which is about 12% of our total mind power) is the part that we use for logic and decision-making.  The subconscious (88%) contains our deeply held attitudes, beliefs, memories and patterns.   If you’ve ever tried to break an unhealthy habit only to find yourself repeating the same pattern over and over again, you can probably guess why. Your subconscious mind is much more powerful than your conscious desires and it can prevent you from achieving what you want.  Hypnosis provides a direct channel to the subconscious, thereby providing you the ability to strengthen and empower your conscious desires and make them reality.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Through a natural mechanism similar to sleep, your sub-conscious mind’s ability to be aware of many things at once is opened up.  This awareness, coupled with the relaxation of the physical body, allows you to effectively absorb powerful suggestions.

Why Should You Choose Hypnotherapy?

Because hypnotherapy provides the quickest, most effective way to resolve personal issues and create permanent change. Hypnotherapy was officially endorsed by the American Medical Association in 1958 as an effective, legitimate and safe therapeutic approach for a wide variety of medical and psychological conditions.
