Many of us hypnotize ourselves daily with negative thoughts and feelings. If you have a busy mind and find meditation challenging, discover the ease of hypnosis. Acupuncture, yoga, watching TV or a movie, repetitive exercise, meditation, and prayer are all forms of light hypnotic activities.
Hypnosis is more than just a state of deep relaxation. It is a natural state of selective, focused attention that opens the door to countless possibilities for healing, self-exploration, and change. Hypnotists call this state ‘trance.’ In this state, your inner mind is more receptive to suggestion. However, you are still fully aware, in control, and in-tune with your surroundings. At ALIVE, we have seen this natural holistic approach provide tremendous relief.
What Is Hypnosis Effective For?
Hypnosis works with the mind, body, and soul as an integrated unit. It has been used to resolve pain, reframe emotional issues (i.e. sad into optimistic or anxious into peaceful), reduce stress and approach medical procedures with greater calm and confidence. Some of the most common symptoms and conditions that hypnosis can help address are:
Fears (i.e. hospitals, needles, etc)
Pre-and post-operative preparation
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
What Conditions Are Not Suitable?
A letter from a Medical Doctor is required for pain management.
Hypnosis for anyone with DID (dissociative identity disorder), schizophrenia or significant mental health issues can be helpful, but these individuals need to be under the care of a Mental Health Professional trained in hypnosis.
Hypnosis & Fertility
Hypnosis is an extremely effective way to overcome fertility concerns. It can reduce stress, fear, anxiety, and ‘re-program’ unhealthy habits in order to more easily conceive a child. For those on the fertility journey, hypnosis has been shown to significantly increase fertility: one study showed a jump in pregnancies from 30.2 percent to 53.1 percent.
What to Expect During the First Appointment?
A typical session will begin with you letting our specialist know a little about yourself, your goals, and objective. Our staff Hypnotist will walk you through the session and welcome you to make yourself comfortable. Following this, she will guide you into a focused state of calm and relaxation and utilize safe and gentle hypnotic strategies to reinforce positive thoughts at the unconscious level. Once in hypnosis, you will be completely in control and aware of your surroundings. After the appointment, you will feel more relaxed, balanced, and confident.
