Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation where clients achieve heightened focus and concentration. Clients under hypnosis feel calm, relaxed and more open to behavior modification suggestions. This form of therapy utilizes the subconscious mind to gain better control over undesired behaviors, anxiety, negative mindset, pain, etc., which ultimately allows for positive change.
Hypnotherapy is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. The subconscious mind is like a computer hard drive, where every experience, emotion, feeling and thought is stored. In the relaxed, hyper-focused state of hypnosis, clients are able to access the subconscious mind to reconnect with repressed memories, mental blocks and/or emotional traumas. Bringing these issues to consciousness and changing the emotional charge attached to them allows the subconscious mind to re-code these events, removing their negative effects in our present life.
