How Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis is a method of relaxation and concentration that provides access to a unique state of consciousness. In a deep state of relaxation the sub-conscious mind is able to access long-term memory, emotions and feelings, habit patterns, addictions, involuntary bodily functions and creativity. This state is characterized by increased primary process thinking and suggestibility. Hypnotherapy not only utilizes the heightened acceptance of positive suggestions, but accesses subtle and sometimes unknown causes for physical conditions and behavior patterns. Once identified, the therapist is able to assist in reprogramming the positive suggestions that the client seeks to achieve with an exceptionally high rate of success and speed.
Breathe Therapy and Subtle Body Energy Work
Conscious connected breathing integrates one’s effective, somatic, and spiritual experiences with emotional healing. Clients develop new techniques of breathing and learn to practice the technique until it develops as an automatic response. This facilitates the healing process and helps in moving the energy within the body. The subtle body energy work assists clients in working with and healing the causes of emotional and physical imbalances where they first manifest in the energy field.
