What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a combination of techniques to first take a person into a kind of peaceful trance state during which time the deeper levels of the mind become more available for communication.
Imagery is another powerful technique in hypnosis. Imagery focuses and directs the imagination to create mental images that help bring about desired changes in one’s physical or emotional state.
Therapeutic Suggestions are also frequently used in a Hypnotherapy session. These suggestions state in positive terms what you want to happen and when.
What is Hypnotherapy Used For?
Hypnotherapy traditionally has been used to help people change behaviors like smoking and overeating. It has also helped people to better manage and reduce stress and anxiety and to rid oneself of fears and phobias. Many athletes have used self-hypnosis to boost their performance.
Medical Hypnotherapy - When hypnotherapy techniques are used specifically to influence the body towards healing, it is referred to as Medical Hypnotherapy.
