An Introduction to Hypnotherapy

Sadly, due to myths and misconceptions about hypnosis many shy away from the potential hypnotherapy has to offer. Through hypnotherapy we can truly make a difference. I will share with you a study done with a local hospital and over 200 of their patients. Through hypnotherapy we were able to assist patients lower their pain, stress and nausea by as much as 50%. We learned through this study that stress was actually the key to the changes experienced. As we help the patient lower their stress through a 20-40 minute hypnotherapy session automatically their pain diminished. We will also discuss the many uses of hypnosis understanding that the goal is to address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, treating the whole person and encouraging overall balance. During this presentation participants will have the opportunity to experience group hypnosis and the benefits this modality can offer. We will also dispel those inaccurate myths and create more clarity and understanding.
