Hypnosis

 

Hypnosis is one of the quickest and most effective ways used today to help individuals effect profound and    permanent emotional and behavioral changes. Hypnosis was recognized by the American Medical Association in   1957 as a potent and effective tool in the treatment of many psychological and medical problems. It is especially helpful in the following areas -

 

Stopping smoking

 

Losing weight

 

Reducing stress, anxiety, and panic

 

Overcoming phobias

 

Pain management

 

Eliminating "bad" habits

 

Building self-confidence

 

Improving sports performance

 

Increasing motivation

 

Increasing concentration, study habits and memory for school and work

 

Preparing mentally for surgery

 

    Many of the problems listed above can be dealt with in a relatively short space of time. Most of our smoking    and weight control clients are seen only one or two times.

 

    Hypnosis is essentially a particular state of mind in which suggestions are not only more readily accepted than   in the waking state, but are acted upon much more powerfully than would be possible under normal conditions.

 

    Hypnosis does not induce sleep or cause loss of consciousness. In addition no subject can be made to do anything he or she would not ordinarily do while in the hypnotic state.
