What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the practice of bringing the conscious mind into a trance-like state in order to make the subconscious mind more receptive to suggestion. A trained and certified hypnotherapist guides you into a deep state of focus and relaxation with verbal cues, repetition and imagery. When you are under hypnosis, this intense level of concentration and focus allows you to ignore ordinary distractions and be more open to guided suggestions to make changes to improve your health. It can be used to alleviate pain, treat phobias, decrease anxiety, improve dementia or sleep disorders, and to explore past memories.
