How does hypnosis work?
When something happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behavior in response to what happened. Each time something similar happens, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. In some cases these reactions are unhealthy. During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally and may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused. Most simple phobias and fears can be resolved in 1 to 2 sessions.
The combination with regular medical care
Hypnotherapy approaches illness very differently, looking into metal toxicity. We prepare a total wellness plan for the person taking everything into consideration; Mind, Body, and Spirit. The results are positive and the client can have much more control over their mood swings or any other illness. This approach does not make the drug companies less rich but acknowledges the fact that hypnotherapy is one of the best effective approaches in helping others in a much natural way of healing and self-improvement!
Some people erroneously believe that a person in hypnosis is a subject who has placed himself/ herself under the power or control of the hypnotist. It is wrong they are the ones with the power we are only the guide trained to guide them on their journey and facilitate their self-empowerment. People still have the power as long as they believe that to be true. The client is in a state of guided self-hypnosis
We are happy to offer our potential clients a 15 MINUTE free introductory consultation, either in person or phone.
Applying Hypnotherapy to Depression and Suicidal Ideation
Depression is a very real, debilitating condition and if you genuinely have it you will know! Some use the analogy of having a big, black cloud hanging over them; We’ve all experienced days where there is an unusual stillness about the day, almost as if the world has stopped revolving and everything seems muffled and somehow unreal. It feels like there is something missing but you can’t put your finger on it, so just go about your day as usual until it passes or the wind gathers up and the birds start singing again. Depression is normally slow growing, a continuum that gradually creeps up on the person before becoming all consuming. Sometimes they don’t even know the root cause which makes them then feel guilty for having these feelings. For some people they appear to have it all – success, money, good health, a loving family – but when you are depressed these things just aren’t enough. Some cases of depression are more severe, with intense symptoms that may include significant appetite and weight loss, sleep problems, and frequent thoughts of death or suicide. Such depression can be paralyzing. You may isolate yourself and have trouble getting out of bed or leaving the house.
