What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility. It is a therapeutic technique that aims to access the subconscious mind to bring about positive changes in thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. During hypnosis, individuals enter a relaxed state where they are more open to suggestions. Contrary to popular movie and TV show references we can't or won't make you behave like a chicken or do other silly things during your session 😉
How Does Hypnosis Work?
Hypnosis works by bypassing the critical conscious mind and directly influencing the subconscious mind. It allows you to tap into your inner resources and make desired changes. Through the power of suggestion, hypnosis can help people overcome various challenges, such as reducing stress, improving sleep, managing pain, and enhancing self-confidence.
