Hypnosis is one of the quickest and most effective ways used today to help individuals effect profound and permanent emotional and behavioral changes. Hypnosis was recognized by the American Medical Association in 1957 as a potent and effective tool in the treatment of many psychological and medical problems. It is especially helpful in the following areas -
Reducing stress, anxiety, and panic
Eliminating "bad" habits
Improving sports performance
Increasing concentration, study habits and memory for school and work
Preparing mentally for surgery
Many of the problems listed above can be dealt with in a relatively short space of time. Most of our smoking and weight control clients are seen only one or two times.
Hypnosis is essentially a particular state of mind in which suggestions are not only more readily accepted than in the waking state, but are acted upon much more powerfully than would be possible under normal conditions.
Hypnosis does not induce sleep or cause loss of consciousness. In addition no subject can be made to do anything he or she would not ordinarily do while in the hypnotic state.
