What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind, and a tool that has improved millions of lives.  It can be used to modify behaviors, improve physical health, and cultivate emotional wellness.    The process relaxes the physical body and the mind: brain wave patterns slow down and a tremendously pleasant, focused state of awareness emerges.  While in this deep state of relaxation, the subconscious mind is more receptive and open to beneficial ideas and suggestions.


Everyone naturally experiences hypnosis many times throughout the day:  the tremendous sense of relaxation right before we fall asleep at night or immediately after we wake up in the morning, the feeling of being half-awake and half-asleep, the sensation of being miles away as we daydream, becoming absorbed into a book or a television show, driving and arriving at our destination without remembering what happened along the way… these are just a few examples of the state of trance.


Hypnosis provides direct communication with the subconscious mind, where memories, beliefs, and emotions can be brought forward and transformed.  The subconscious mind directs the automatic functions and responses of the body, and this connection can be used to enhance physical wellbeing.  Hypnosis is the key to access this part of the mind, where we can unleash our potential, change our unwanted habits and behaviors, and find solutions to our problems and concerns.  The therapist acts as a guide through this process to move the mind and body towards health and wholeness.
