Hypnotherapy and weight loss:

If you are confused by hypnotherapy and feel that  different online sources are contradict eachother, welcome to our clinic!  Let’s explain everything about hypnotherapy and weight loss from the very beginning.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is the act of guiding someone into a gentle trance state, which is usually performed with the help of a therapist using different sources like mental images, suggestibility and verbal repetition. When a person is under hypnosis, they usually feel calm and relaxed and are more open to suggestions.

Hypnosis is considered to be an effective method to help people deal with pain, stress and anxiety. It can be used with success in the treatment of smoking, insomnia, weight gain and other addictions as well as weight loss and weight gain.

In short, hypnotherapy is a practice of hypnosis by professional therapist, or a doctor, to help people overcome certain physical, or mental condition.

How hypnotherapy can help control cravings and appetite:

Hypnotherapy is a powerful treatment which connects our conscious mind to our subconscious mind. In a hypnotherapy session, people are awake, conscious and participating. It is also known for harnessing the power of suggestion. Professionals can help people to control their unnecessary craving and appetite by focusing their mind and suggesting a healthier behavior. Professionals are able to dive deep into the subconscious mind to reveal and treat the root cause of issues such as anxiety, addiction, or slack of elf-esteem. In the relaxed state of hypnotherapy, hypnotherapists are able to pull up the repressed memories and buried emotion at the root of different mental health issues.

Each unhealthy behavior like overeating has a chain of events leading to these unhealthy choices. Under the trance like  state, hypnotherapists are able to trace back the experiences and subconscious decision that people made as children which led them to behaviors which are no longer healthy. With hypnotherapy, professionals can help people counterattack cravings and appetite by suggesting the worse effects that it can have.

Does Hypnotherapy work?

“The British Psychological Society’ commenced a survey in 2001 for evidence and a formal report of hypnotherapy and found that enough studies have been accumulated to suggest hypnosis is beneficial in the management and treatment of a wide range of health condition and problems.

Stanford Researchers scanned the brain of 57 individuals undergoing hypnosis and found that section of the brain associated with the change showed ‘altered activity and connectivity’.”
