What is Hynotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a relaxed state similar to meditation or the feeling you have just before falling asleep. When in this state you are fully aware of your surroundings, able to hear, speak, comprehend and react normally. Typical sessions last 1-1 1/2 hours, you will feel relaxed and calm, able to see, hear and speak at any time. Hypnotherapy is a tool that can be used for behavioral modification in the subconscious mind to help you start a behavior or end one.
Why is Hypnotherapy Effective and Successful?
Hypnotherapy bypasses the conscious mind, that part of us that judges, rationalizes or criticize, and works with the sub-consicious mind. The subconscious mind contains ideas, beliefs, and values that we have accepted at various stages in our lives. Because the subconscious mind does not judge, beliefs are held as truths even if they no longer fit in the context of our lives.
Through Hypnosis we can access the source in our subconscious mind in order to discard the outdated ideas, freeing ourselves to select those beliefs that now support us in a healthy, balanced manner.
In 1958 Hypnotherapy was approved by the American Medical Association to be a viable form of treatment.
