Hypnosis is a modality that takes you into a deep and relaxed state. When you are in this relaxed state your subconscious mind is open to positive suggestions while bypassing the critical mind where we spend much of our time rehashing problems and talking in our head.
A registered hypnotist can tailor a program and suggestions specific to you.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a deep and relaxed trance like state. In hypnosis you have heightened focus and concentration. A hypnotist will guide you into the hypnotic state and deepen the level of relaxation throughout the process. The hypnotist will give you verbal suggestions and guide you to visualize images. The hypnotist also gives suggestions for your specific outcome.
When you are in hypnosis you are usually in a calm and peaceful state, allowing you to make beneficial changes. This calm and relaxed state often extends beyond your hypnosis session.
