What Is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis in a therapeutic setting in order to promote positive changes and healing.

Many unbalances may be caused by memories buried in the subconscious mind that we are often not aware of. With the use of hypnotherapy, these memories can be recalled, put into proper perspective, and the blocked emotions can be released so that the body can heal. In this state of calm awareness, we can also focus on positive imagery and constructive exercises to help us achieve our goal.

We are merely deeply and comfortably relaxed and would never say or do anything that we wouldn’t say or do in our daily life. Hypnosis is a state of inwardly focussed attention and we are in fact very aware and alert. Rather than getting caught up in the repetitive processes of the rational mind, we are able to remain present and calm in the moment. Hypnosis is very much like taking a leisurely walk in nature where the mind becomes still and we are aware of all that we see and hear around us.

Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective tool when used by trained and certified professionals.
