Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapy. It helps the patient to tap into their inner wisdom and provides a pathway by which to clearly identify and solve both emotional and physical issues. When the conscious mind relaxes, the subconscious becomes more active, and the patient enters what some refer to as a trance-like state.

This hypnotic state is a natural state entered into by most people many times during a normal day. Once the mind is relaxed, insights, answers, and new behaviors become obvious. Addictions, conditioned responses, and old patterns of belief and behavior can be easily changed.

A trained Hypnotherapist guides the patient into the trance state and then facilitates contact with the area of the subconscious mind where change or insight are desired. Hypnotherapy can help patients incorporate new behaviors and create relaxation and peace of mind.

While in a hypnotic state, the client is aware of the surroundings yet feels so relaxed that the distractions of the world fade away. Patients remember what is said and done in the trance state and are able to incorporate insights gained into their daily life. The client always has a choice and will incorporate only the suggestions that are most beneficial.
