What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to help people change thoughts and behaviors: to rid themselves of bad habits, to improve performance, to control subconscious actions that they don’t want or need in their lives. Because in hypnosis we are more suggestible and our subconscious minds are more accessible we can make profound and long-lasting changes in our lives. This is done by bypassing the critical, thinking, part of our minds which questions every input and altering the underlying, uncritical, subconscious mind with positive, helpful, suggestions.
Once our actions become habitual and subconsciously driven, they become part of ‘us’, part of who we are. Of course, bad habits can also form as well as good ones, and if we don’t control what goes into our subconscious minds, we can end up with thoughts and behaviors that are not the ones which we desire.
Is Hypnosis Medically Approved?
The American Medical Association (AMA) as well as the American Psychiatric Association (APA) have approved Hypnotherapy for use by professionally responsible and trained therapists. Hypnotherapy has been a recognized form of treatment since 1958. Many techniques and applications have been improved upon over the years to form an extremely effective and Therapeutic approach to personal wellness.
