The American Psychological Association describes hypnosis as a cooperative union where the client responds to suggestions for change initiated by the trained and skilled hypnotist. Hypnosis is used to reduce pain, anxiety, fears, phobias, and used to promote weight loss, as well as end unwanted habits.
How it works.
Hypnosis is a simple and natural technique, using suggestion to help you experience a relaxed state of mind that facilitates new learning by connecting to the subconscious mind. In this state, you can accept and actualize suggestions for behavioral change in a way not possible in the ordinary waking consciousness.
Since change happens at the unconscious levels of mind, hypnosis is highly effective as a tool to promote change. It is fun and relaxing as well, with no unwanted side effects.
