Hypnosis for Health
The mind has two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious part holds our temporary memory such as our will power, logic, and rational thinking. Our subconscious mind is our permanent memory that controls our emotions, habits, and instincts. Also, between the two is our critical faculty or our intuition/voice that speaks to us. During hypnosis, a person is put into an alpha state or dreamy state where the critical voice can be bypassed, allowing results to occur. This state allows the body to relax, and the mind to focus intently on the words from the hypnotherapist. The more the body is relaxed, the more the mind is open to receiving suggestions.
Today, hypnosis is an alternative method to successfully treat many types of concerns and help to control phobias, lose weight, quit smoking, reduce stress, reduce pain, regain lost memory, manage sleep disorders and more.
