WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY
AND WHY DOES IT WORK?

PUT VERY SIMPLY:

Hypnotherapy is meditation with a goal. Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to bring you into a relaxed state where you can work on the goals that are most important to you.

All you have to do is close your eyes and get free; free from what has been causing you pain for far too long. Freedom begins in the mind. Take a nice, deep, letting-go breath and read that again slowly: Freedom begins in the mind. Specifically, freedom begins in a place very few people know how to access – the subconscious mind. Your beliefs, emotions, habits, values, protective reactions, imagination, intuition… these all reside here.

HYPNOSIS IS A NATURAL STATE
WE GO INTO EVERY DAY

HYPNOSIS THAT YOU EXPERIENCE IN
EVERYDAY LIFE

Hypnosis is a natural, familiar state. We all move in and out of the hypnotic state all day long. For instance, sometimes we go into this state when we’re driving, watching TV, listening to music, or working on a project that we’re passionate about.

Hypnosis is the state from which you can make extremely powerful changes in your life because it is the state in which you are the most receptive, creative, and intuitive.

Some people can enter into hypnosis more quickly than others, and everyone can improve his or her ability to reach the hypnotic state through practice. A lot of people think they can’t be hypnotized, but they can. Everyone can be hypnotized. Hypnosis is more similar to daydreaming than it is to sleep. (Although, if you do fall asleep during hypnosis, the suggestions are still absorbed.)

THE EFFICACY OF HYPNOSIS

CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH CONTINUES TO PROVE THE EFFICACY OF HYPNOSIS SUCH AS:

HYPNOTHERAPY
AND BREAST
CANCER

Women with metastatic breast cancer who received pain experience by 50% compared to a control group.*

At a 10-year follow-up of these same women, the Hypnosis treatment group had double the survival rate of the control group.**

Hypnosis significantly reduces the time it takes to heal. Six weeks after an ankle fracture, those in a Harvard Medical School hypnosis group showed the equivalent of 8 ½ weeks of healing.

BUT WHAT IS
HYPNOSIS?

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. All of the transformation you experience as a result of a session is because of what you have done. The power always lies within you.

All from something as simple and relaxing and
non-invasive as a few minutes spent in deep meditation...

AND VERY FEW HAVE ANY IDEA THAT THIS EXISTS…

Hypnotherapy works because when we are relaxed and feeling safe we become open to suggestion, that’s it.

Hypnosis is a process that produces increased awareness of the unconscious mind, heightened sense of suggestibility, and deep relaxation to access the subconscious mind without resistance. This allows for brain wave state shifts to take place to promote wellness and recovery. Hypnotherapy does not access willpower but has the amazing ability to utilize the power of imagination and effect a change in reality by accessing the subconscious mind.
