While you may think of hypnosis as something you see only in the movies or on stage, hypnosis is used in real life as part of the treatment plan for people with numerous health ailments ranging from depression to gastro-intestinal disorders. Based on research showing that hypnosis can help people manage – and in some cases recover from illness, hypnosis is becoming a more common part of many patients’ recommended health treatment.
Hypnosis is a natural state of focused attention. So, why do people look asleep? Hypnosis is like going to the movie theater and when you remove all the distractions so you can really get into the plot. While each persons experience is as unique as they are the general consensus is hypnosis provides a calm relaxed state of being. Kind of like a mental massage, working out the kinks & stress leaving you feeling refreshed and renewed.
Hypnosis works through the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind houses our programming received while growing up, creating our reactions as seemingly thoughtless as the beating of our heart. Clinical hypnosis is like upgrading our software so we can perform in the present moment, as opposed to reacting from the past in regards to the future.
