Hypnosis is simply a deeper level of relaxation that allows your hypnotherapist to access and work with the issues that are holding back your progression in life. You will experience your session feeling relaxed, refreshed, and aware – you are always in control of your own mind and body, the therapist merely offers verbal guidance to assist you on that path to recovery.
Hypnotherapy is a medical practice that uses verbal guidance, repetition and induced states of deep relaxation in order to promote health and well being in a patient. Hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for a number of life-disrupting issues, such as substance addiction, anxiety, and even anger problems. Bear in mind that hypnotherapy has nothing to do with stage-style hypnosis, which is simply a rehearsed act performed for the sake of entertainment, similar to a magic show. Hypnotherapy as a medical option was actually recognized as far back as 1958 by the American Medical Association (AMA) and American Psychological Association (APA) as a valid medical procedure.
