          Q & A

What is Hypnotherapy?

Have you ever wondered why when you have tried to change a habit or behavior it usually resurfaces? This is because our conscious willpower usually cannot compete with the power of the subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations. Hypnosis is believed to be a powerful tool for accessing the subconscious mind and creating dramatic improvements in our lives.

During your private hypnotherapy session you will remain completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, many people experience a hyper awareness where sounds appear enriched, thoughts clearer and your ability to imagine and visualize is greatly enhanced. It is common for these hypnotic experiences to create sensations of deep relaxation, fluid warmth or a pleasant tingling sensation or buzz throughout your physical body. Many describe the hypnotic state as a complete and total escape from all physical tension and emotional stress, while remaining completely alert.

Can anyone be hypnotized?

Since 1968, when HMI’s College of Hypnotherapy under the direction of Dr. John Kappas, recognized the existence of two distinct types of Hypnotic Suggestibility – “Emotional and Physical” – a new Hypnotic world has been revealed.

Human behavior has led us to recognize that everyone is Hypnotizable and responsive to suggestions. Some are more responsive to physical sensations, others to emotional stimuli, still others to environmental stimuli; and some, to all three. This new formation has opened doors for the Hypnotherapist, the motivator, the counselor and to anyone using Hypnosis for self-improvement.

Here's what experts and the media are saying about Hypnosis...

Hypnosis can help adult patients control other forms of pain, relieve gastrointestinal problems, stimulate weight loss, clear up skin problems, and accelerate the healing of bone fractures and surgical wounds.

Consumer Reports

Hypnosis is not mind control. It's a naturally occurring state of concentration; It's actually a means of enhancing your control over both your mind and your body.

Dr. David Spiegel, Assoc. Chair of Psychiatry, Sanford University School of Medicine, Jane Pauley Show

Want to lose weight? Kick a bad habit? Well you might want to try hypnosis! No longer regarded as mere hocus-pocus, it's been shown as an effective means of helping people quit smoking, shed pounds, reduce stress, and end phobias.

Jane Pauley Show

Hypnosis can actually help you lose weight.

Harvard Medical School psychotherapist Jean Fain, Oprah Magazine

In hypnosis, you can attain significant psycho-physiologic changes.

Dr. Daniel Handel, National Institute of Health, New York Times

Approved as a valid treatment by the American Medical Association in 1958, hypnotism has become increasingly accepted by the medical community. Its use for chronic pain was approved in 1996 by the National Institutes of Health.
