What is it?

Hypnotherapy is a tool - Use it to change your life.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the “Fast Pass” to change.

Your brain marks changes to the cells in your brain, or neurons, when you are focused while doing an activity, learning new information, involved in an exciting event or emotional situation. Times of intense thought and repetition also lay the foundation for neural changes. 

Those changes are coded into your brain during deep rest and sleep. Ready for use when needed again.

Hypnotherapy combines focused intensity and emotion with relaxation to encode changes during each session. Changes to your neurons are created immediately.

A combination of your readiness, relaxation, and imagery are used to create change in your thoughts, which changes the dialogue in your head, and ultimately your actions. 

Even though the change is fast the results may take minutes or days to be noticed by you. The more open you are to the process, the better the results will be. 

The hypnotherapist guides you through the entire process in order for you to make desired changes to benefit and serve you.
 
It’s also known as hypnosis.
 
Hypnotherapy is approved by the American Psychiatric Association and the British Medical Association as a viable therapeutic tool.*

Why Hypnotherapy?

A 2016 study at Stanford University noted:

“Distinct sections of the brain have altered activity and connectivity while someone is hypnotized…revealing the brain’s ability to heal medical and psychiatric conditions.”

Hypnotherapy “…can be a powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders. Hypnosis can also help people change their habits, such as quitting smoking.”

A comparison study described hypnosis as a dynamic and vital healing process embracing all aspects of mental health care.*

The results:

    • Hypnotherapy
      93% Recovery after 6 Sessions
    • Behavior Therapy
      72% Recovery after 22 Sessions
    • Psychoanalysis
      38%  Recovery after 600 Sessions

What's the role of the subconscious mind?

Your subconscious is the workhorse of your brain. About 90% of the activity happening in your brain is by your subconscious. The subconscious is not a specific part of your brain, but is called the “sub” conscious because it functions beneath or below  your awareness of what it is doing.

The programming needed for living, such as breathing, moving muscles, and digesting food, is stored and controlled by your subconscious.

Your brain is famous for putting thoughts and actions on autopilot to conserve energy.

Your thoughts and habits, including movements, are stored for future use. Thoughts include everything from beliefs and values to learned facts and life lessons.

Memories, thoughts, actions, and feelings are activated when recalled, needed, or triggered.

 

What's the role of the conscious mind?

Your conscious mind is aware of about 10% of your brain activity at any given time.

In addition to active thoughts, it uses your five senses to take in and filter information. Once analyzed, compared, and labeled, information considered relevant or important is stored in your subconscious for use later.
