Body and Mind relax During hypnosis, you are awake and aware, but calm and drifting at the same time. I usually start with a breathing and muscle relaxation exercise. This quiets down any defenses resisting the changes. Now the suggestions, that we discussed and agreed upon beforehand, can directly impact your subconscious. This type of change takes place from within yourself and can be particularly helpful with stress, anxiety, specific fears, pain, and unhealthy habits. In many cases, I provide you with a CD or audio file to play it yourself and deepen the learning.
You remain in control Many people think that you lose control during hypnosis, that they are unconscious. However, you actually take control by allowing suggestions that we have agreed upon. The goal is that with a quiet mind, you can follow my guidance and use your own power of imagination to bring on change.
What to expect You may feel light and floating or heavy. People respond differently. It depends on many factors, such as how suggestible you are, how fearful or trusting, etc. For some people, it's more natural while others have to work harder to relax mind and body. With repetition, anybody can learn it to a certain degree. Most of my clients experience, at the very least, a deeper relaxation and an increased sense of well-being.
If you're interested, we can incorporate this in treatment.
