We have become accustomed to separating the mind from the body based on convention and the Age of Reason. In the movie the Devil’s Advocate, Al Pacino says that the neck is the battleground between the mind and the body, but truly, the two are deeply connected in many different ways and are not two distinct forces pitted against one another.
Hypnosis is a valuable tool used to help the body, through an access point in the mind that we call the subconscious, and can be useful for many different ailments including, but not limited to:
- addiction – either to drugs, alcohol or tobacco
- weight loss and appetite control
- cancer and auto-immune disease
- fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue
- chronic stress
- past trauma
- and many more
Hypnotherapy is very powerful and safe. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, and you get better at it as you practice relaxing, visualizing, and creating in your mind’s eye. You are always in control during hypnosis, and will never cluck like a chicken or dance like a robot when in trance, unless you want to. We offer a safe, professional clinical setting to help you access your subconscious, and unlock your healing, joy, and perhaps even help you achieve goals and dreams through creative visualization. Hypnosis is like guided imagery and meditation, but in this case, you have a doctor trained to guide you along your personal journey, not just a general recording that everyone can listen to.
Professional athletes use hypnotherapy to optimize their performance; visualizing complex physical movements is experienced by the brain in exactly the same manner as actually performing them. Golfers practice drives and putts in their mind’s eye, basketball players practice free throws and three point shots, while other athletes use this connection to solidify their skills without the physical activity and lessen over-training. Successful business people also use hypnosis to increase cash flow and further ensure financial gains and achievement of goals.
Hypnosis is a safe and effective therapy, and can benefit everyone. Dr. Heather Wdowin, NMD studied hypnotherapy in order to add this valuable tool to her medical practice, and has been using it for seven years to help her patients achieve their goals.
