What is trance?

Trance is a generally more relaxed state of mind in which your conscious mind is more susceptible to suggestion.  When you daydream, watch TV, read a book, pray, or meditate, you are in a type of trance.  Maybe you’ve been studying and not notice the phone ring.  Maybe you have been rolling up in your driveway, and you realize that you have no memory of leaving your job.  Trance is something that we all experience, to varying degrees, on a daily basis.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is employing trance for the sake of using your susceptibility to suggestion to embed ideas that may enable you to bring forth change.  Usually during hypnosis, you are not completely asleep, and you are aware of what the hypnotist is suggesting.  You are simply in a state of mind to where you are more prone to enjoy what the hypnotist might suggest.  Furmore during hypnosis, you can be in a place where your unconscious mind is more flexible and accessible.

What is hypnotherapy used for?

Hypnosis has many uses from entertainment to healing.  You could use hypnosis for changing bad habits, overcoming fears and anxieties, reframing past experiences, relaxation, focus, coping with pain, and even improving physical health.

What are the limits of hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is not a miracle cure-all treatment.  We will often recommend that you see a physician, a nutritionist, or other mental health professionals.  However, we believe that hypnotherapy has the potential to be at the very least a helpful supplement to other treatments.  When you make an appointment with us, part of what we will talk about during our session is other steps that would be wise for you to take to holistically address your issue.  We do what we can to be sure that we are approaching you as professionally and responsibly as possible within our scope of practice.
