How Hypnosis Works

Hypnosis helps you leverage your strongest personal asset – your mind – to achieve lasting and positive behavioral changes. Once in a relaxed hypnotic state, you will open yourself to affirmative, therapeutic suggestions and begin your own journey toward positive transformation and personal freedom.

Hypnosis sessions begin with a soothing breathing exercise. Through gentle suggestions, I then lead you into a state of complete relaxation and deep meditation. The conscious mind steps back, as the subconscious mind becomes open to suggestions for transformation. In this state of deep relaxation, your mind concentrates on one specific behavioral change, ignoring all outside distractions.

Can I Be Hypnotized?

The hypnotic state is attainable by almost all people. During your initial consultation, I test your responsiveness. Naturally, if you are not responsive to hypnosis testing, your fee will be refunded in full.

Dispelling the Myths

Contrary to popular belief, when hypnotized, you are not asleep, and you are not unconscious either. You are able to talk, hear, move and think. In hypnosis, you are simply in a deep state of relaxation – similar to what you experience prior to falling asleep – where your mind is more open to positive suggestions for change. You can come out of this relaxed state at any time by simply opening your eyes.

Hypnosis is a scientific and medically approved methodology. In fact, hypnotherapy has been backed by the American Medical Association as an accepted and recommended medical procedure since 1958.
