All About Hypnosis

History of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is as old as mankind. The old myths and misconceptions have given way to proven scientifically sound applications. Today the ethical use of hypnosis is used in a variety of fields including medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, professional sports, education and psychology. The American Medical Association approved the use of hypnosis in 1958, calling it "a viable and beneficial health alternative".

How Hypnosis Works

For every thought or emotion we have a related physical response. thoughts are then imprinted into the subconscious and create a biochemical response within the body. Stressful thoughts create Catecholamine that is released from the adrenal glands and the body goes into a flight or fight response. The remedy for this mental nd physical stress reaction is to release the wonderful endorphin and serotonin into the bloodstream during hypnosis therefore naturalizing the adrenal responses and allowing you to feel calm and comfortable.

How Hypnosis Helps in Recovery


Hypnosis allows you to regain control over your compulsive thoughts and gain mastery over them. Imagine being able to learn, observe and respond to impulses in a whole new way. 

Given that addiction is at base a physical illness with mind-body interactions, hypnotherapy seems a natural fit to reprograming both the mind and the body. Psychiatrists theorize that the deep relaxation and focusing exercises of hypnotism, relaxes the conscious mind so that it takes a less active role in your thinking process, allowing you to access the deeper subconscious, which controls automatic behaviors and processes the physcial information your body receives.

IN this deep state of true relaxation you can explore and investigate the roots of stress and anxiety and begin a path to true freedom. Relaxing the mind can get to the heart of unhealthy thoughts and beliefs... and we can begin to re-program our habits by replacing our thoughts. 

One of the natural benefits of the hypnosis process is a reduction of stress and anxiety levels due to endorphin and serotonin release that accompanies each hypnosis session. The endorphin response offers the ability to neutralize adrenal chemicals and restore the body and mind to a natural balance. Along with experiencing the relaxing effects of the hypnosis process, you will learn new coping skills to manage everyday stressors including advanced breathing techniques.

How Can Hypnosis Help Me?

Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration. A relaxed state of mind and body in which we can communicate suggestions to the mind for change. Our minds work on two different levels: conscious and subconscious. While our conscious mind deals with reasoning, logic, and planning; our subconscious mind controls habits, behaviors, old patterns and responses. Since the subconscious mind is our driving force, hypnosis creates a pathway to the subconscious mind, where old messages can be eliminated and new therapeutic messages can be received. This process helps to eliminate the stress and anxiety patterns that are creating havoc in our minds and bodies. Then positive suggestions given in this deep state of relaxation are readily accepted.
