Clinical Hypnosis

How can Hypnosis Help?

In some cases, the use of hypnosis can be an excellent method for reducing human suffering.  Specifically, hypnosis is helpful for reducing anxiety and improving one’s mood and focus. 

 

Clinical hypnosis can also be used to work through difficult memories and eliminate phobias.  Other uses of hypnosis include alleviating migraines and chronic pain, reducing gastrointestinal discomfort and stopping enuresis.

 

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a relaxed state of focused attention which allows improved communication between the mind and body.  Every individual has hypnotic ability in varying degrees, and through practice and repetition, most individuals are able to experience improved changes in perception, sensation, thought, and behavior.
