Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of relaxation that allows the conscious mind to step to the side and open the door to the more powerful subconscious mind. This relaxed state is a permissive state where learning and transformation are most powerful.
Hypnosis creates a highly relaxed state of inner concentration and focused attention. This technique can be tailored to different treatment methods, such as cognitive, psycho social and behavioral therapy. Patients also can become more empowered by learning to hypnotize themselves at home to reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, manage anger, stress, or alleviate some symptoms of depression or anxiety.
