Hypnotherapy could be an emerging trend for the new year. Every year more and more people are seeing benefits of engaging in hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a natural, yet altered state in which a hypnotist accesses the subconscious mind. In hypnotherapy, they utilize this state to reprogram the mind for what the client wants to happen. Everyone enters the state of hypnosis naturally every day when we are doing a task out of habit and our conscious mind does not need to pay attention — like when we are driving home through a route we are comfortable with, or reading a book and shutting out the rest of the world.
Hypnotherapy or hypnosis has been used to treat the following conditions:
- Stop Smoking
- Weight loss and Weight Management
- Insomnia and Sleepiness
- Exam Help
Those are just some of the dozen other possible uses of hypnosis. With new research showing that hypnosis has significant effects on the brain, a push to more hypnotherapy could be the trend in 2017. There are still many misconceptions surrounding hypnosis that need to be flushed away before more and more people look at it as an option, along with more research.
Luckily, London is home to ten hypnotherapy locations. One of those is London Hypnotherapy Centre, ran and started by Gilles Bernard. At his centre they treat numerous conditions and have seen many results, and a very high success rate. He says there are still myths that surround hypnosis that need to be removed.
“Most people think that not everyone can be hypnotized, or that they are too smart to be hypnotized. When in reality the smarter you are the easier for you to be hypnotized, everyone who can follow simple instruction and listen can be hypnotized.”
Hypnosis could be an option for you if you’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work. The average price per session typically cost between $75-$125, some people only just need one session. As studies conclude the benefits of hypnosis in the medical arena, more medical practices and hospitals are adding hypnosis to their patient’s treatment plans.
