It’s a new year and if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to stop smoking or to manage your weight, you may have come across the phrase ‘hypnotherapy’ but what exactly is it, and how can you benefit from it? In this blog, we want to discuss just that.
What is Hypnotherapy?
According to the NHS, Hypnotherapy can be defined as simply using hypnosis to try to treat conditions or change habits, but we like to refer to it as a person’s mind entering an altered state of consciousness, just like daydreaming. There are misconceptions about hypnotherapy sending you to sleep, but this is not the case.
During this treatment, you will be awake but in a deep trance-like state. It’s this trance-like state that forces the subconscious mind to become extremely active and makes it more alert than it is during its usual awake state. At this point, your subconscious mind takes over from your conscious and is ready to facilitate great change.
How Does it Work?
Throughout the treatment at Eternal Being, you are in complete control of your Hypnotherapy session, so, if you decide to stop the treatment at any point, you are welcome to do so. During this procedure, your therapist will guide you by using professional techniques to achieve the results you desire.
Your subconscious mind listens to your therapist’s voice in a subliminal way and when they talk directly to your subconscious mind in this deeply relaxed state, the positive suggestions automatically sit comfortably in your mind. When you come back into full conscious awareness these thoughts are enacted immediately.
Benefits of Hypnotherapy
One of the benefits of hypnotherapy is that the hypnotic state encourages a person to be much more open to suggestions.
Stress and Anxiety
Stress and anxiety issues can often manifest themselves into physical and mental illnesses that impact your daily life. Relaxation techniques, like Hypnotherapy, have the ability to deal with your subconscious mind where deep-rooted, often suppressed, memories affect your body’s natural process – keeping you in that anxious state.
Weight management can be hard, and keeping it off can be even harder, but hydrotherapy can help with this. Hypnotherapy for weight management helps to remove cravings as well as helping you to make positive, healthy food choices.
If you’re struggling to quit smoking, hydrotherapy can help you. With unique, successful, and advanced hypnosis techniques you can finally stop smoking once and for all. In fact, hypnosis is widely recognised and promoted as a highly successful technique to help people stop smoking.
