Hypnosis can be used to help with many challenging and stubborn issues in life today. It’s history with aiding people to quit smoking or weight loss is prominent, but it’s also being used by the medical community to help with quick recovery after surgical procedures, and reduce the reliance on medications for pain.
Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon but it’s also mistakenly promoted as a cure-all or “magic wand” solution. In the hands of a professional hypnotist it’s a tool to help relax the subject and provide access to the unconscious mind so change can take place using therapy when under hypnosis.

When you discuss the topic of hypnosis with anyone, they’re usually confused with grasping the concept. Many people have trouble believing hypnosis is real, and those that teeter on the fence with regards to what it is and what it can do, usually believe there is some mystery or something entirely mystical about hypnosis in a magical sense. The fact is hypnosis is real and there’s nothing mystical or magical about it. If there is any element of mystery it surrounds the subconscious mind and how it works and not hypnosis. Many hypnotherapists will tell you all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. This stems from the perspective Hypnosis only works if you’re actively participating in it and so in effect you’re actually doing it to yourself.

In essence, it really is mind over matter in that what you want most matters to your mind and your mind finds a way to get it! Most of what we get or accomplish comes about because we talk to ourselves about it in our minds. Discover more here…Read More

So let me see if I get this straight then…”How else will hypnosis work since your eyes are closed and I am doing the talking and you the ‘listening’ if you can’t hear me?” And then if you remember everything I was saying, that definitely must be a bad thing because it means what? Hmm… let’s discover more about this thinking…Read More
Sports injuries are not a laughing matter when they rob a professional or amateur athlete of their dreams.

Age Regression Hypnosis Therapy is a tool hypnotherapists use to identify and clear events of the past and associated imprints and their negative effects. These imprints can impact attempts at achieving a goal a client wishes to accomplish such as losing weight or having confidence. The premise of regression therapy is if previous attempts at losing weight or self-improvement have been unsuccessful then there is likely an event in the past triggering feelings that act as a barrier to change.
