What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of human consciousness that allows you to physiologically shift into a state of relaxation in both mind and body. A familiar example would be the experience of a daydream. This shift causes a cascade of effects in your body’s physiology which causes one to experience feelings of peacefulness and a sense of relaxation. This physiological shift also allows one to safely attend to realizations and details in patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors in new and different ways. When physiology shifts, so too does one’s mind and perspective. Hypnotic relaxation is positive and beneficial to the body on a cellular level. In addition, hypnosis allows one to be more receptive to suggestions and solutions that would be of benefit to us.
