Hypnosis is a pleasant, natural state of relaxation. It’s the state between waking and sleeping; characterized by focus and an ability to accept suggestion. Most of us flow in and out of trance states every day. While often highly dramatized in movies and used for stage show entertainment, the hypnotic state is used therapeutically for:
making behavioral changes, changing habits (smoking, overeating, etc)
reducing pain and other medical conditions (rashes, fatigue)
retrieving memories, healing the past
inducing deep relaxation
releasing fears (flying, spiders, etc)
Medical Hypnosis is a specialty that uses the relaxed state of inner focus, positive suggestions and healing imagery to assist healing. Hypnotic regression can also be used to uncover and clear unknown, subconscious issues that may contribute to stress and illness.
