Stress and anxiety are two normal reactions to the pressures of everyday life. Unfortunately, they can lead to weight gain, insomnia, aches and pains or other issues that make life less than enjoyable. Stress and anxiety, as well as chronic pain cause some people to become dependent on sleeping pills or pain killers, to overeat, smoke, or abuse alcohol or drugs.
Since all of us experience stress and anxiety, how can we ensure that these conditions don’t ruin our health and wellbeing? One very effective method that can keep us healthy and well in both mind and body is hypnosis.
Although often misunderstood, hypnosis is simply a state of focused attention that allows a person to better respond to suggestions. A hypnotherapist will guide the person to a relaxed state and have them focus their attention on specific thoughts or tasks.
Hypnosis can help people change certain behaviors, such as smoking, drinking too much, or biting their nails, and can also help people change perceptions and sensations to alleviate stress, anxiety, fear, insomnia or pain.
Hypnosis is increasingly being employed in mainstream medicine. Safe and effective, hypnosis has no adverse side effects and can be a great benefit for a wide range of issues.
