Hypnosis: How does it work?

Your Amazing Brain:
The Subconscious Mind vs. the Conscious Mind
Your brain has been brilliantly designed to enable you to thrive and to live a very fulfilled life. Along the course of evolution your brain has also learned how to enable you to survive (i.e., find food and water, create shelter, etc.), develop the ability to feel a large range of emotions, and create complex projects (i.e., reaching the moon). While your Conscious Mind possesses the analytical skills to invent calculus and create rockets, another part of your brain is equally adept at being able to survive, being creative, problem solving, inventing ideas, and storing memories and emotions (among many other things). We call this the Subconscious Mind. The Subconscious Mind generates over 85% of all brain activity.
Through calming your rational mind
you’ll experience the many benefits of hypnosis
Hypnotherapy is the process of enabling your conscious, rational mind to become calm, thus permitting you access to the expanded awareness of your subconscious mind. Once you’re as relaxed as if you were floating in a pool on a lazy summer afternoon, you’ll discover a deeper receptivity to new suggestions and ideas, allowing you to integrate powerful new suggestions and ideas that accelerate change. The benefits of hypnosis are far-reaching, and range from expanding one’s self-confidence to diminishing pain, overcoming panic attacks, anxiety around job loss, relationship stress, overcoming phobias such as flying on planes, PTSD, maintaining your health, weight management and quitting smoking.
Your Conscious Mind Enters Into a
Relaxed State Approximately 50 Times a Day
“Hypnosis is a completely normal state of mind where the results are more effective and long-lasting.” * On average, your conscious mind enters into a relaxed state approximately 50 times a day. Everyday activities such as day-dreaming, watching TV, and sometimes even driving your car allows you to be more receptive to your subconscious mind.
Hypnosis Enables You to Successfully Reach Your Goals
Hypnotherapy empowers you to alter feelings, beliefs, and attitudes held within your subconscious, enabling you to successfully reach your goals, eliminate stress, and make profound changes in your life.
Hypnosis Helps Balance the Mind, Body and Spirit Connection
Hypnosis is also occasionally used as a form of holistic therapy to balance the mind, body and spirit connection. Addressing a client’s spiritual beliefs may not be direct when in session, at times a harmony between the mind, body, and spirit is nonetheless experienced.
Hypnotherapy Can Assist You in
Reconnecting with Your Inner Wisdom
Sometimes trauma, pain, and stress cause us to discard our dreams of what we most deeply want to achieve and experience in life. Hypnotherapy can assist you in reconnecting with your inner wisdom held within the subconscious. As a result, perhaps you might rediscover a passion for a new career or artistic ability which you had explored earlier in your life, but had since forgotten.
