What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a technique which uses the hypnotic state, which enables changes in perception and memory, a major increase in response to suggestion, and the potential for managing many physiologic functions that are usually involuntary. Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person’s attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked or ignored. In this naturally occurring state and with the help of a trained therapist, the person may focus his or her attention on specific thoughts or tasks.
What are the benefits of hypnotherapy?
The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for several conditions such as:
- Phobias, fears, and anxiety.
- Sleep disorders.
- Post-trauma anxiety.
- Grief loss, and depression.
- Pain Management
- Wellness and so much more…
Hypnotherapy is a safe modality when done by a trained hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy is not mind control or brainwashing. A therapist cannot make a person do something embarrassing or something the person does not want to do.
