Hypnosis changes the way your brain interprets experiences. It can change your perceptions and responses. New ideas are absorbed by your consciousness and become part of your thinking. Hypnosis helps you see things in a fresh new way. It can help you use your mind to control your body. During hypnosis you are in complete control of yourself. Hypnosis is not mind control or brainwashing. You will not do anything against your will!!

Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis. It is a tool of psychotherapy that is widely accepted for the treatment of anxiety, depression, physical discomfort, dental work, pain control, and stress reduction. It is used in pregnancy and for childbirth. Hypnotherapy can also improve the success of other treatments when used in conjunction with them, for phobias; habit, sleep and eating disorders; cancer; and addictions.

Hypnotherapy is a process that utilizes deep breathing, progressive relaxation, visualization and post hypnotic suggestions for change. The person’s attention is so focused inward while in a “trance state” that seemingly everything else is either blocked out or ignored. This hypnotic state can allow the person to explore/reframe their thoughts and feelings, to alleviate symptoms and to possibly even uncover the root cause of a condition that can then be dealt with in psychotherapy or with medical treatment.
